What I Wore: A New Old Look
What I Wore: Dress (c/o eShakti; Similar Here), Sweater (Vera Moda), Shoes (Old Navy)
New Year; New Look- or, well New Old Look, I suppose. After my roots grew out crazy long before I could make time to see go to the salon, I said good-bye to being a bottle blonde. Too. Much. Work. Ain't nobody got time for that! And maybe it isn't as drastic as it feels (everyone says it looks like my regular hair color), being a brunette feels grand. Plus, it was the perfect way to start the holiday!
For anyone who doesn't know, The Boy and I had a Christmas in the Sand while visiting my sister in Los Angeles! While you can check out my Instagram account to see what was happening (or the hashtag #calichristmas), I'll be sharing bits and pieces of our sunny holiday adventure over the next week or two as well. On the actual holiday, we stuck our feet in the Pacific at Venice Beach and saw a movie (is it just me, or are they a lot more Serious-with-a-capital-S about movies in Hollywood? We had assigned seating and everything). We dined in a trendy restaurant, and even did karaoke in Korea-town.
Strangely it was cooler than L.A.'s usually perfect weather while we were there, but since it was in the sixties in California and below zero back home, I was over the moon to be able to wear all sorts of things I probably won't be able to again for months! First among them? This dress. It was actually what I wore to fly in. My mother swears by traveling in dresses; says they're more comfy. What do you think? I'm not so sure, but it kept the bulk of my carry-ons down and theoretically the dress less wrinkled. Since layering is always a must when traveling I did throw on this black sweater. Both in the Golden State and in chilly Cody, I've been loving this sweater to death. It just goes with everything! The funny part was, while we raved about the gorgeous weather and marveled about the novelty of being outside without being bundled like a polar bear, all the Californians we met spoke longingly of the snow. The grass is always green I suppose!
