Wednesday's Wardrobe: New 'Do(s)

Every year around this time I get the insatiable urge to cut my hair. It has been AWHILE since my last haircut and I was in desperate need of a chop. My curls have come back to life and I think my wardrobe suddenly feels a little fresher too.   A new 'do has apparently caused several new wardrobe DOs for the current season.

Shoe Pair 21: I wore this to brunch last weekend.  I was hoping to forgo a sweater but it was wee bit dreary/cool so I added this mustard yellow cardigan.  It was the perfect addition to my color party of an outfit.
Sweater/Belt - Marmalade in CA, Tank - Dillards, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Bandolino, Necklace - Gift



 Shoe Pair 22: I had a marathon of a day complete with work, class at my alma mater, the dentist and friend's birthday dinner last Thursday.  I needed a comfortable outfit that would get me from 6am to 12am with no sweat.  This was that outfit, layers are perfect for long days in/outdoors.


Sweater/Silver Bracelet -Loft, Dress - Marshall's, Scarf - Gift, Shoes - TJ Maxx, Red Bangle - DIY


  


Shoe Pair 23: On Saturday I attended my friend's dance show and dinner in this shirt dress.  This was a clearance rack find at Old Navy, I was drawn to the laid back feel and the in-your-face citrus color.  I paired it with a bright scarf and comfortable shoes for walking through Georgetown.

Dress - Old Navy, Scarf - Nordstrom Rack, Arrow Necklace/Gold Bracelet - Stella & Dot,  Gold button necklace - Eastern Market, Friendship Bracelet - DIY, Sandals - Nordstrom




It's funny how one small change to your appearance can cause a mini-makeover.  Do you change things up with a new haircut, pedicure, facial, etc?  I would love to know what changes your look!

Your hair looks great! I am liking ALL the looks - especially the first one. Anything that mixes mustard + bright blue + floral is a-okay in my book!

Your floral blouse is SO pretty Cara, and love it with the yellow cardi :)

A new haircut always makes me feel fresher. It's too bad I'm so lazy about going. I really should try and go every few months to keep it updated.
Love the yellow shirt dress.

I love your fun and bright spring colors! I typically change my wardrobe when I get a dramatic haircut like going from long to short which I tend to do every couple of years

I always feel more refreshed after a haircut. But it's been a while since I had one because I'm trying to grow it out.

I was wearing almost that exact same outfit this week (mustard cardigan with blue skinnies). I love the color combo. I also wear a lot of orange with my blue skinny jeans.

Those orange and pink wedges are awesome! You make me want to paint my toenails.
