I think the most fun thing about a new hair style or hair cut is that it changes the way I think about getting dressed. Sure I’ve worn versions of this exact look in the past, but it feels more complete now that the hair happens to match the decade a little better. A modern ’60s look or a full retro ’60s look is one of my favorites, and it’s fun to pull items new and old together to create it. Though this blouse has maybe more of a ’70s feel {?} it works

I do wish it would snow again, but it’s fun to wear alternatives in the mean time that don’t fully consist of a ridiculous amount of layers and snow boots. Though really, I love that too.
