Blonde Hair Don't Care

It's that time of year where people are throwing out the old and coming with the new. I had a moment last weekend where I was freaking out that I didn't have any summer clothes (I know... a disaster!)  so I went on a mall tour of Los Angeles and pretty much bought out all of the Beverly Center... and then directly proceeded to Century Century where I then went ahead and bought out that whole mall as well. But while we're getting into a summer flurry and buying endless new attire, let's not forget about the other updates that should be made also... like our hair. Whether that be a new cut, hairstyle, parting your hair to the side instead of down the middle, or a new color, switching up the hair is a total necessity for the summer time. Last year was the first time I ombre'd my hair, super nervous to make the switch (practically holding my breath the whole time while the transformation went underway). But since then, I can't even imagine not being a wannabe blondie. Going back last week and reombre'ing the ombre as I like to call it, I was yet again fearful about the change, as I hate to make changes, especially to my appearance. Cutting my hair like half an inch (which to me still feels like 15 inches), letting the look sink in for a few, I feel like a whole new me, ready to now roll for the summer--which is just as important as any outfit you can buy.

Straying From Black

I have to admit... I have a problem. My favorite color is black. Black shoes, black shirts, black skirts, black socks. It just matches so well with everything, it's hard not to love it! So when I saw this piercing blue shirt, you can only imagine the thoughts that were going through my mind. "Do I buy? Do I not buy? Well... it's not black you know... " As I kept debating, I soon came to the understanding that there was just no way that I was going to leave without it. And what's funny is that when I wore this outfit, I got so many compliments not on the outfit as a whole, but on the shirt as its own entity. And on top of that, people weren't saying things about the amazing gold zipper that runs all the way down the back or the fabulous lace design, they instead would stop to tell me that the color of my shirt was amazing. This outfit reminded me about all the times I would get love from others on my bright colored outfits, reminding me that sometimes it's ok to stray away from black.

Karmin Killing It

On top of being super talented with a sound that crosses over between pop & rap and having the catchiest songs ever ("Brokenhearted" is def on repeat in my car), these two (who are actually going out and engaged!) are super adorable. I love following them on Instagram to see what cute thing they're doing next as well as checking out their outfits. Amy, lead singer of Karmin, knows how to stand out with her unique wardrobe and hairstyles (I am determined to one day conquer the "Karmin hair swoop").  They hands down win the award for most stylish couple of today and people need to start getting more obsessed with them ASAP.
