I rarely wear my hair completely up but fun hair embellishments like this headband really inspired me to try it out! Goody sent over a package of cute hair accessories and I had a ball playing with them all. I normally would not have picked up this headband but I tried it on and really liked the color against my hair. I ended up putting my hair back in a bun with the spin pins (love them!) and held the rest of my hair back with the cute headband. I have giant head syndrome though when I wear headbands like this as it kind of gave me a headache after awhile but when I tweeted about my headband aches many of you chimed in with the same thing so I don’t feel so bad!
I ordered this sweater from Forever 21 and it was one of those things that I wanted to return but it was so cheap that it was not worth the hassle of going to the store to return it so I kept it and worked with it. I liked that it was a short sleeve sweater, since I’m always cold I figured it would be a good top to wear in the Seattle summers where it’s nice but still windy. The sweater it actually a bit more boxy than I’d like and it doesn’t really work with someone who’s short and apple shaped like I am. To solve the problem from it making me look even wider in the midsection I added the fitted striped tank underneath to give it some depth and take away from the boxy-ness. It’s definitely a different look for me as I tend to dress for my body shape – I try to elongate my short midsection – and this outfit was kind of the opposite but I think it still worked and I may not stray from boxy sweaters as I usually do.
I turned the camera around and got a shot of my photographer’s awesome shoes and his little helpers! 🙂

I actually think this one is a cuter shape than mine. I love this coral color and it comes in a pretty yellow too. The Relaxed Scoop Neck Sweater is a slimmer and more fitted. Or you could probably do the same type of look with this Purl Knit Top.
