Gingham Shirt Leather Pants

If you haven’t noticed, I got five inches of my hair chopped off! It was to the point where it was overtaking my face (and my life), so I took the plunge and could not be happier. I have thick hair, so it can take upwards of an hour to dry and straighten/curl it all. Nothing feels greater than a new haircut that leaves you with some healthy locks!

Fun backstory on this Kate Spade necklace: it’s actually a bracelet! I put it on my Christmas wish list last year, and Santa pulled through and got it for me. Unfortunately, my excitement quickly turned to puzzlement when I tried it on and it was a little too large for my abnormally small wrists. It probably would have helped if I saw it was listed under the bridal section of the Kate Spade website. All I can say is I was blinded by the bling. It’s actually been sitting in my jewelry drawer since Christmas, which is probably why I keep forgetting to get a chain added to it. My plan is to turn it into a necklace, because how much cuter does it look around the neck? Since I haven’t gotten around to getting a chain put on it, I got super crafty with a piece of string.

    That “necklace” totally works! I have been looking for some leggings like those too. Never quite sure I can pull them off. I love how you’ve styled them!

    Your haircut looks great! I like that piece better as a necklace than a bracelet. I have small wrists too which makes finding bracelets a problem. Cute gingham shirt!

    Yes to leather pants! Ah so amazing Olivia! Your hair looks beautiful, I totally understand how nice it is to have a bunch chopped off. I’m getting my hair cut in a couple days and I think I’m going to get a least 3 inches taken off because it seems like all of a sudden it’s become crazy long lol.!

      Thank you Jen! I can’t wait to see your new haircut! I love long hair, but sometimes it’s way too much to take care of. When I regret getting too much off I just remind myself it’s going to grow back eventually!

    BB – I love what you did with the KS bracelet! Way to be so crafty! IMO, I think it looks better as a necklace anyway. Also, the gingham looks SO good with your leather pants!!
