hair poll

So my cousin Sarah is getting married this December. I honestly couldn’t be happier for her and her fiancé, Mackey – they are such a wonderful pair:

I also have the honor of serving as one of her bridesmaids, and – while I know it is many months away, now is the time to start planning – I’m wondering what I should do with my hair. I was thinking of cutting it, as it’s getting rather shaggy lately, but perhaps I should grow it out?

Some examples of my hair both long and short…

turning 27

Today is my 27th birthday – please, hold your applause – and I had a joint birthday party celebration yesterday with my friend Leah, who also turned 27 last week. But of course, what should I wear?

Well, I thought it’d be fun – and fair – to let you do the work and go with the winning choice from last weekend’s bachelorette party poll:

Flirty & festive, yes – I dig!

bachelorette beauties

Well! The you-pick-what-I-wear poll was a fun little experiment. I really did plan on wearing what YOU chose; however, I should’ve put a time frame on the poll. I feel bad that I didn’t end up in the winning look, but by the time I had to get dressed & going, there was a 3-way tie! It was between the zebra top & skinnies, the black ruffle dress, and the deep-V dress with medallion accents. So I simply had to just pick one.

you pick what i wear

Hello there, everyone! As you know, I went to a bridal shower for my friend Elizabeth last weekend, and tonight is the bachelorette party – drinks & food at a comedy club, some karaoke, some bar-hopping. I’m excited! But of course the question now is… what should I wear?

I thought of a few options (click for larger):

a) gold sequin, swirl top & skinny jeans (similar to – or exactly – this look)
b) silver sequin zebra print tank & skinny jeans
c) flowy, mod-ish tan and gold deep-V top & skinnies
d) flowy, black deep-V top & skinnies
e) black ruffle dress with yellow tights & boots (as seen here and here)
f) black deep-V, flutter-sleeve dress with medallion accents, purple tights and boots (as seen here)

Or something else? Feel free to leave other options or modifications/suggestions in the comments. I’m curious what you will choose!
