Ballerina or April?

Cardigan: thrifted // T-shirt: Everly // Earrings: handmade // Ring: Black Market Boutique

Please excuse the half outfit post (and slightly out of focus photos) today. After an hour of searching around the house I realized the piece I needed to put my camera on the tripod was nowhere to be found. So, with Christian sailing again I’m left to take the pictures myself making a full outfit post difficult until I convince someone else to snap some shots for me. I know, I know, I’m full of excuses – I’ll make it work until he’s home.

I really love this simple mustard yellow tee I picked up from Biscuit General Store downtown earlier this spring. It drapes beautifully and has a lovely, flattering cut.

The citrine earrings are the ones that I posted about earlier this week. I actually can’t even describe how much I’ve been loving them. I think I’ve worn them every day for a week. I actually ordered some more citrine and some other lovely jewels recently off of Etsy so that I’m able to make and sell more in a similar style.

Cheers,
Alison

PS: I love the way the new haircut looks in a little ballerina bun. I feel like pairing it with a pair of cigarette jeans and striped sweater and being a little Parisian girl. haha!

PPS: Also, with my hair out of the bun and the colour of my tee I realized I bare a striking resemblance to April O’Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles – more so than just being a ginger. Check out the full post to see what I mean, and let me know if you agree!

My New Haircut.

I find I’m in a constant state of wanting to change something with my hair. I’ve put a lot of effort into growing it out to the length it is now over the past couple of years and I personally have no desire to dye my hair so what I’m left with is playing with my bangs. Even then, I’ve debated back and forth for a month whether or not it truly wanted to add bangs back to my (non) hairstyle. However, I decided to hell with it and made an appointment for today to cut my hair. I also cut a couple of inches off (that hurt a little bit) because it’s been about six months since my last cut and the ends were a little dead.

The above shot is my messy hair pre-cut. Below is some bang-spiration (ha!) from Sienna Miller and Bridget Bardot that I’ve had pinned on Pinterest for awhile now.
