I am attached to my hair. Anyone who knows me knows this is true. I haven’t had a real haircut since 8th grade, and I get it trimmed maybe once a year. I often sit on it, get it stuck in windows, and even unintentionally eat it. It takes at least 40 bobby pins to keep it up, half an hour at least to dry it, and brushing it is nearly impossible. But even though it is an endless source of frustration for me, it is my safety. I have hidden behind it for years, and become attached to it in a way that’s almost unhealthy. Thus, I have decided to change that. Tomorrow, I am getting a haircut. While this probably seems like very boring news to most of you, it is a huge step for me. I have almost chickened out and cancelled my appointment more than once in the past week, but I am determined to stick to my decision. As cliche as it sounds, I think it will change me for the better in more ways than one.

Due to the fact that it is currently -2 degrees here in Lexington, I thought I would share a little beauty for all of you who are being forced to endure this miserable cold as well. The looks above are some of my favorites from Giambattista Valli’s couture collection, and I am in love. Due to my recently discovered obsession with all things girly, I can’t get enough of his beautifully cut dresses covered in appliquéd floral-print. The pinks, blues, and pastel hues keep the girly theme going, while the unusual silhouettes keep it from being too sweet. Absolute perfection.

Button Down | Sweater | Hat | Heels

Recently, I started working as an intern at Street Scene Vintage. It’s been an amazing experience all around so far, but undeniably, one of the best parts of working there is being surrounded by amazing clothes all day long. I am constantly falling in love with the new merchandise we get in the store, and have already found my style to be evolving into a more vintage-inspired look. These are some of the purchases I’ve made recently, and it is safe to say that I am absolutely obsessed with every single one. The toile button down is one of the most wonderful pieces I’ve ever discovered, and I am not embarrassed to admit that I wore it three days in a row after I introduced it to my wardrobe. The other item from Street Scene is the red hat, which somehow goes with everything in my closet. And with the recent horrific weather, it has saved my hair on more than one occasion. Although the pink sweater and the leopard print heels are not from Street Scene, I love them just as much. I purchased these items for my interview at Anthropologie over Christmas break, and have developed deep obsessions with each one. 

Each of these items are perfectly adorable on their own, but I also think that they can all be worn together as well. Throw on some jeans or a leather skirt and tights, and the look is sweet and complete.
