The ladies over at academichic asked me to be a part of their "Dress Your Best" week, by dressing to celebrate what you love about your body! So, since my hair is what people always notice about me first, I picked that one first. I think that wearing earthy tones compliments my hair and wearing green brightens it by providing contrast!
Cardigan - Target
Dress - thrifted and shortened by me
Tights - TJ Maxx?
Shoes - Linea Paolo
My hair is a huge part of who I am. Growing up, I hated it because it made me different and made old ladies try to pet me in the grocery store. A little boy in my first grade class told me my hair was red because I ate Spaghetti-Os and carrots for lunch every day (which I did). But after a while, I realized that at least all the attention was positive and if Anne of Green Gables could accept her hair, so could I. It's unruly, it gets in my face (thus why I put it up almost every day...), but I am growing it out, so hopefully it will be less all up in my grill and I can wear it down more often without being bothered by it all day. Le hair, I love you.
