Wardrobe Wednesday - Houndstooth

Hi all! How is your week goin? I can't believe it is already Wednesday - phew. I have been applying to jobs like a mad woman. Please hire me people! Applying for jobs online is so difficult, with an endless sea of applicants, how do you stand out? Wah, wah. I am hopeful though. It will happen. I am just hoping sooner than later.

Oh yeah, I cut myself some bangs yesterday. I think they are a fun change. I need to get an actual hair cut - sorry to all my hair stylist friends. I know, it's bad. Anywho... I am just in the mood to ramble today it seems. I just feel like I have so many little things to chit-chat about. I also started working on my health and fitness. I downloaded the MyFitnessPal app (alliemc123) and bike an hour each day. Anyone else using this app? It is awesome because it allows you to be mindful of what you are eating and chart your progress for exercise :]

Outfit Details: Dress - Dorothy Perkins | Cameo & bag - thrifted | Wedges - Target | aaaand sweetpea.

This dress is a lot of fun to wear - a tad short for me but I am dealing with it. I look forward to styling this dress for the fall with fun tights and cardigans. Four years ago I would have never pictured myself twirling around in dresses, and yet here I am! I have done a complete 360 when it comes to my style and I couldn't be happier. Tehehe.

What are you all up to for the rest of the week?

  5. I love your bangs! I'm getting my hair done today and I think I might go back to bangs as well. I am not bold enough to cut them myself, but it looks to me like you did a great job on yours!

    1. Thank you so much! I am glad they didn't look too nuts. I went slow and tried to make the cuts as straight as I could.

  7. I sympathize with your job woes. I applied for like 25 jobs and only had 4 people even call for an interview! My advice--just hang in there! Don't lose hope! I also read a lot of resume/cover letter tip sites to help me stand out from the crowd.

    1. Ugh. It is no fun at all. I think I am getting close to that number. Thank you so much. I will have to look in to that :]

  8. The bangs look really good! I thought those shoes were these Blowfish shoes I had always wanted, but Target! That might be easier to attain. I hope you get a call back soon about a job!

    1. Thank you x2! You should definitely check out the Target by you for them. I love them. They are so comfortable and were under $30. :]

  19. I love your new bangs! I've used a calorie counter by FatSecret before, and you can add your exercise into it as well. It's amazing how much those apps help.

    1. Thank you! It really is. At first I kept cheating and editing what I put in - major denial - but now I have come to terms with the fact that I needed a change and it is starting to work.

  21. OH MY GOD YOUR BANGS!!! You're perfect.

    Now I have to go read the rest of this post because I ran straight to the comments to get that out of my system.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ha okay now I've actually read the post! I love that you did them yourself. I always do my own bangs.

    And yes I was thinking that you probably thought that dress was short for you, but once again, I love it! You have the legs for shorter dresses : )

    More about that dress. I think I just fell in love with it. All the cute little dresses you wear makes me think I should probably wear more (that's all I used to wear..I had this huge aversion towards pants).

    Who needs pants anyway?

    1. Tehehe. Thank you lady :]

      Ha. Yep! The other time I wore this dress I wore a slip to add some length. Thank you though. I have been riding my bike and am hoping to tone them up a bit so I feel more confident.

      They are so much fun to wear. I was the complete opposite - I only wore pants. It is so nice to be free. Haha. YEP!

  25. You, darling, look wonderful. I'd hire you immediately.
    I've been applying for jobs and it's very discouraging! And exhausting!

  26. I was just thinking, man she looks different..and then I scrolled down and read that you cut your bangs. They look great! Obviously, I'm a bang fan. Did you cut them yourself? Did you do the twist and cut trick, that's what I do. lol

    ReplyDelete

    1. :] Thanks! Yes I did cut them myself, however, I haven't heard of the twist and cut trick - how does that work? I just use two fingers to pull the hair down and cut straight across them.

  27. Adorable outfit! I love you hair too! You have some major bang-cutting skills too! They look cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. i want to comment on all your outfit posts.. but they'd all say the same thing: LOVE IT! (as cliche as that sounds... hah.)

    how are you?

  30. Love the dress and kudos on not f-ing up your bangs! You did a great job. For every 10 times I cut my own bangs, I really put a hurtin' on them at least twice. hehe oops.
