{ what i wore : i got bangs! }

It's January 11 and I forgot to mention that I got a haircut on new years eve.
I asked the girl to give me very blunt, heavy bangs.
I'd been toying with the idea for a long time and figured it would be a good way to start 2012.


What do you think?
I'm still getting used to them.
For a good week I thought they were a mistake
but they're starting to grow on me
figuratively and literally.
I realized that they are going to need some maintenance in order to keep them from blinding me.
I do like them now, though.

Alright, now what we're here for:
Two outfits from last weekend.

I wore this one out to date night on Sunday.
Which was humorous for two reasons:
1. the restaurant we went to was closed ... since August.
Thanks Hurricane Irene.
2. I definitely underestimated the weather and this is ALL I wore.
That vest did not cut it for the 38 degree weather.
Silly me. At least I looked cute while shivering.

My top is an extra-large and it was on sale for $8.
I love it and I have a feeling it's going to be an every season kind of garment.
I'm picturing it with khaki shorts and rainbows ... my summer uniform.

I wore this next outfit for dinner at my brother- and sister-in-law's
(and with this great photographer and his lovely wife)
and all of our kids, of course.

The headbands were $5 for two and I'm kind of obsessed
Oh and that button down... it's a children's size large. Yup.

Two thumbs up on the bangs! I tried heavy last year and ended up going lighter, but the heavy bangs really bring out your facial features!
