It's a rare straight hair day over here for me! Some days I wake up and don't feel like my usual curly 'fro. What I have noticed about myself is that when I wear extra flowy outfits, I want to wear my hair wild and free. When I wear more structured looks, I have a tendency to want to wear my hair straight. I have been trying to break free from that cycle of one structured piece meaning that my whole look needs to be structured, and I think this is a prime example of that.

I found this dress on a whim stop at Forever 21 a few weeks ago, tucked behind a stack of cardigans I was looking at. The belt it was supposed to come with was missing, but I liked it better as a free flowing silhouette anyway. So far I have been too lazy to take a seam ripper to the belt loops (oops). I'll get to it one day... eventually.

Never in my life have I gravitated toward anything in the orange color family. It does not work well with my skin tone, especially when I am still winter pale, so I am surprising myself this season. Everything I like is orange. Everything. Is style like taste buds, changing every seven years, opening you up to new flavors and experiences? Who knows, but I like where this is going.
