I’m wearing half of my purchases from yesterday. You can’t see it very well in these pictures but the scarf in my hair has navy polka dots on white with a big navy border. I put it in my hair to keep back the bits that didn’t quite reach my pony tail. You can probably see that it didn’t work as planned. I should have known that it wouldn’t do much when I had to pin it in place. Super straight hair with no texture and polyester don’t work well together. It still looked cute so I left it in even though it didn’t function as planned. The skirt was one of my other finds. It has pockets! I love it but I’m thinking about hemming it a bit shorter. I was thinking of making it hit directly below my knee caps. I like longer full skirts for the summer but I’m not sure if this length is the best for me.

The last of the four pictures shows my feelings about the state of my hair and location. I had a hard time getting good pictures because the lighting is just wrong in my room outside of my nook. My nook is where I’m doing my research for my final papers and the table I usually use to take pictures on is covered in books and papers. Boo. As for my hair, my bangs just desperately need to be cut and I need to get my roots dyed. My roots are looking way more blond than I remember. I naturally have dark ash blond hair but my roots usually just look dark grey when they grow in. Actually, they’re kind of invisible unless I do certain things with my hair like pin my bangs back because my natural hair color reflects the colors around it really well. I wonder what my natural hair color is up to these days… It will probably be a few more weeks before I can something done with my hair because finals and moving are going to continue to eat all of my free time. Meh.
