More than Blue Skies

Tuesday, February 09, 2010
Thank you all for your help concerning my bangs!! From the comments, it seemed pretty even - about half and half. After much thought, I've decided to grow them out. I realized I can always cut them straight but I can't always grow them out faster. I'll probably go back to straight bangs soon though...

Do you guys recognize how I tied my scarf? It's from the scarf tutorialWhat Would a Nerd Wear posted yesterday, which was very helpful might I add! This is WWaNW's The Warmest Way knot. And it was, indeed, very warm.

Seems like my best outfit pictures are usually the ones where I am caught candid! I need to stop trying too hard when being photographed.. (Oops, I'm still wearing my name tag...)

  2. ooh pretty dress. i was going to say the same thing about white in winter but it seems i've been beaten to the punch. something about girls in white dresses is just so refreshing. maybe we have julie andrews to blame?

  3. Okay, i just have to tell you that I LOVE your bangs, i think you wear them better than any other bangs i've seen. anyway- love this outfit. i love those boots, can't get over them.

    and campus - i work everyday at noon...so it makes it kind of difficult I realized because I'm up at school earlier in the day. ahh, jobs. where would you like to work?

  4. I like how the color palette could be a light springtime look, but it translates well into the winter. Speaking of which-- no snow?? lucky!

    I like the last picture. :D

  24. The scarf tutorial is so helpful--I plan on using it. :) Your bangs look so cute like that too! I have the worst time styling bangs (they never did what I wanted them to do, and they definitely take way too long to grow out). This color combination is so pretty, and I love that last photo!

  25. I love that you have a scarf style names after you (the Elaine knot)!

    The eyelet dress is so pretty, and I love that the scarf matches the sky (using the sky as an accessory ...brilliant :)

  65. In the pic you're leaning against the wall, it looks like a warm spring day!

    About my post, I do what I can to be helpful to people--especially during bad weather. It's a terrible feeling to need help and not get it.

  67. hair looks cute! and good *warm* outfit - with out super chilly temps lately i'm wishing i'd worn that today!

    i go through the same debate with my bangs, too. i just got my hair done today and i went back to semi straight across. they can work either way and let me tell you i LOVE that. it really only works because when i have sideswept bangs they only look great if they are on the shorter side.

    ReplyDelete
  68. yay thanks for the shoutout! i'm loving the scarf (of course).

  69. What kind of job are you looking for? My brother-in-law is a manager of a parking garage company. If you wanted you could be a parking lot attendant. I know, it sounds boring, but they let you do your homework while sitting in the booth.
