A Long, Long Time Ago
I found these outfit photos from back in the early days of this blog.....well, earlier days. I can't believe I forgot about them! It was the first time I had tried styling my hair in the "Carrie Bradshaw" messy bun. Anyway, most of the photos didn't turn out well (anyone else have a hard time looking good in white - especially in photographs? Is there a secret I don't know about?)
Aside from the strands that I just. cannot. get. under. control., I think I did a pretty good job with the hairstyle. At least I was proud of myself for trying something new (I have curly hair and I HATE backcombing it! HATE. IT.)
Earrings: c/o The Mr. (has anyone else noticed my husband's go to gift is pearls. He likes to play it safe, apparently. I'm not bragging, really, I'm not. I'm just saying a girl could use a new diamond (or any brilliant gemstone) every once in awhile, am I right??)
Necklace: c/o The Mr. twisted with Target
Bracelets: Vera Wang, F21
Skirt: Banana Republic
Wait, did I really just use parentheses within parentheses? I think my High School English Teacher is probably slowly dying......somewhere. And why is there a singular for the word parentheses? Has anyone ever come across a random ( ? Except for, of course, the common :) which wasn't around when they first named the symbol? Or was it?
