Look of the Day: feeling like myself again

Surprise!!

 I'm back to blonde! Blonder than ever actually. At the salon, I said platinum without realizing that kind meant "Make my hair translucent". Now I know how polar bears feel.

 Shopping tip of the week: If you can make it work, buy kid's clothes! They are so cheap! I got this shirt for $6 at Target. And I bought a matching one for my niece, hahaha
This isn't even the largest size they had, so you might as well take a look the next time you're at Target. You might be able to save some money!

 This lovely little bag came in the mail yesterday and I couldn't be happier. I'm thinking about buying all the colors Mochi Beaucoup has! It was hard to decide which color to get, but in the end orange bag won because I need some orange in my wardrobe. They have some really cute pastels, too, that are perfect for Spring. Check out the full line of French Macaron Mini Bags. I love how they have them stacked on top of macarons. Too cute.

I like the return to blond and it looks great against the orange tee. Alas, I doubt I could get a kids size to fit although I've bought a boy's shirt or two at the thrifts.

I went to TJs today, mostly because we needed frozen fruit, but partly because I wanted to see if ours had ranunculus. It didn't, but I got some lovely stocks instead (in a color I think you would appreciate-a pale rose).

Do you feel like yourself again?

I've definitely shopped in the girls department before- I've found that things like leggings fit better than shirts, which can be built boxier. I really like that color and your ranunculus! Ranunculi?

Oh yay! I prefer you blonde, and I like the platinum. I haven't tried one of your recipes yet (no time), but I do want to!

Doh - I thought I wrote already but I guess I didn't. I absolutely love the blonde! It looks fantastic on you.

Great meeting you oon Saturday!

Your darker hair was lovely, but I have to say, I think blonde suits you best. The platinum shade is really beautiful, and it makes the coral-orange in your top seem even brighter and more vibrant somehow :) I love your little bag, and the idea that they come in macaron colours has me eriously intrigued. Must investigate!
xox,
