Outfit Post: Experiments

Here is my attempt at experimenting a bit, both with my clothes and hair. 
I wore this flowy blouse while I was pregnant and I just can't seem to put it on without feeling like I look as though I have a bun in the oven (even though it isn't even a maternity top!).  So I layered a cropped sweater over top, to give it more of a waist.  Paired with black jeans and black boots to make it even more sleek.  

As for the hair--I am a pony-tail addict who is slowly coming to grips with the fact that I wear my hair UP pretty much all the time (I never ever thought I'd be THAT girl!  Oh, motherhood...).  I seriously think my hair is molding into a way that only looks good pulled back now, so here is my attempt at a little bit of change--a happy medium.  Also, my bangs keep getting shorter and shorter....must. stop. cutting.

blouse: Target (old), sweater: Banana Republic (thrifted), jeans: Gap, boots: old, from Ross...and probably one of my best purchases EVER! $15 leather campus boots?  And I've been wearing them for at least 5 years!

I'm hoping these little experiments will hold me over as I am itching for a new look!  I'm thinking a hair color change (Amanda's new RED looks awesome!...but no worries, I won't copy you, sis!).  Either that, or a buzz cut and purchasing a collection of wigs.  What do you think?



  1. Beautiful! I think the crop top looks adorable, although I'm sure it looks adorable without it too! It's so easy to fall into a rut of the same hairstyle every day, I'm definitely all for a color change to mix it up!

  2. Ah, my favorite queen of layering strikes again!!! Love this ensemble as always. The floral adds just the right amount of pop.

    I know what you mean about wearing your hair up...sometimes you have to keep it out of reach of little fingers that are capable of causing much pain. ;) Until the other day, I had not had my hair cut since six weeks BEFORE my baby was born, and she's almost 14 months now! Everyone kept commenting how long my hair was, and I didn't notice because I saw it every day and pulled it back. One Mom's Night Out (with a friend to see Breaking Dawn 2.....aaaahhhhh!!!), I wore it down, and it wasn't until I saw a picture of us that I realized how long it was. Wow, that was a total ramble. Aren't you glad I shared that riveting story? But, anyway, speaking of painful little fingers, last night my daughter was trying to run her fingers through my hair like I do hers, just to be sweet. It hurt like hell, and I laid there and let her do it all she wanted. :)
