Hair Sprucing Challenge Update

These were supposed to go up on Friday, but it turns out it’s a lot more work to do daily photos than I realized. They just sat there, inside the camera all lonely and forgotten. Un-uploaded and un-edited. You know, plenty of people do this for every post. Every day. Which now seems like an insane amount of time. Plus it’s really hard to be creative with photo taking every day on a time crunch. But also really fun. And it gets my mental wheels spinning. It’s good to challenge yourself, and it takes your mind off of something you don’t like (March!).

Say, speaking of…this challenge is going so so well, that the weather is pretty much perfect. March is suddenly like “What’s that? You don’t like me? You never have? How’s 75 degrees and sunny? Now do you like me?”. Well I’d say I like you a lot more thanks to this hair accessory challenge. And also thanks to egg sandwiches. I’ve been eating them every day in the last week and a half.

One last thing. Is it cool that in two of these days I’m not wearing make up? I actually try to take off at least one day a week from make up. Usually Saturday or Monday. So 3.5 and 3.10 are both makeupless.

Elastic headbands-Target, Thermal-Target, Hoodie Vest-Burton, Jeans-F21 (4 years ago). If it’s not already obvious, this was my day off. I love day off do chores around the apartment outfits. Nailing comfort.

Headpiece-Accessorize, Dress-H&M, Tights-Urban Outfitters, Clogs-Swedish Hasbeens, Lipstick-MAC Impassioned.

Scarf-Vintage, Fake glasses (to hide my no make up Saturday look)-Jakes, Tank-Wet Seal, Ninja Pants-American Apparel.

Velvet Twist Scarf-American Apparel, Wool Blazer-Madewell,  Jacket-Forver 21, Jeans-Forever 21, Socks-Gap, Oxfords-Bottega Veneta, Bag-Bottega Veneta, Sunglasses-Norma Kamali

I know I’m not even half way done, but I haven’t missed a day and I’m feeling confident that I’m going to complete this courageous challenge. I know what you’re all thinking and I’m thinking it too…this is the stuff that makes the world a better place.
