So yeah - my hair is red now. I have gone through quite a hair awaking, actually. My hair has been red before when I was younger, but I have always thought that red hair was so beautiful. I needed a change - and I love it! If anyone is considering taking a leap and drastically changing your hair I say to your now - JUST DO IT!
I am also staying focused on only adding things to my closet that make me really happy. I think a lot about personal style, and about how to stay true to myself without falling into the habit of only wearing things that are considered trendy at the time. Dainty scarves, like this one from J. Crew, are certainly on trend right now. When small square neck scarves started popping up in the accessories section on some of my favorite brand's websites I was super excited. I have always LOVED wearing a neck scarf. It nods back to a different era, one that I am a big fan of, and adds a little personality to an outfit. I am also a huge fan of a higher neckline, and adding a scarf to a blouse or dress where the neckline is lower gives me that same flattering effect.
This particular blouse from J. Crew is a bit of a departure from what I am usually attracted to. It could be considered a bit "preppy," but when paired with this Madewell front snap denim skirt it gives it a different feel - one that's more eclectic and suits my personal style well. When it comes to blouses, I am also a huge fan of a statement sleeve. As some of you may remember, top and blouse shopping for me is such a pain. I hate almost every blouse I see. This top wears like a simple t-shirt but gets a little punch with the ruffle sleeve. It's perfect really. If you're also searching for the PERFECT little denim skirt for summer, I can't recommend this one enough. It is so insanely flattering, especially if you're a girl with hips like me.
Adding fun little scarves to simple tops has once again become one my favorite ways to finish an outfit off. J. Crew currently has a well-rounded collection of them available in great materials. I've linked a couple of my favorites below!
