Hello dolls! If any of you haven't noticed yet, I rarely ever wear my hair up, (ever!), I never mix bright colors, and I never mix patterns! I made a resolution yesterday to start buying bright colors and mixing them together. I really am a colorful person (I love every color in the rainbow!) but I am always buying neutral clothing. Latley, Elsie's style (A Beautiful Mess) has really been influencing me to go more colorful, so I'm going for it! (when I get the money of course haha.) I really just want a "happier"/"more me" style.

Now that I've lost a bit of weight I decided to give wearing my hair like this a try and I love it! I'm seriously planning to wear my hair like this or braided a lot when spring/summer hits. I always get sooo hot in the summertime wearing my hair down. FINALLY I can be content with wearing it up!

For some reason ^^this little booger^^ wanted to be in every shot! His name is Kitty Meow. He had a tiny twin sister named Muffin that we were going to keep but she ran away :( (at least that's what I hope happened to her.) He's the sweetest little kitty.. I didn't want to get attached to him because I already have a big fat ragdoll named Lilo (and he gets jealous way too easy!) but I think I might be talking Josh into adding another member to the family.. (and possibly another Boston Terrier [a boy for Niyah to play with!]) We'll see how that goes ;). xoxo

  6. Such a darling outfit! Bright, bold, and happy. Sometimes mixing colors and prints can produce some great things. That pink scarf is a great touch against the black and white patterns. Really adore your blog, dear!

  8. Aww, I'm so happy that you pushed yourself and did something new! Starting small is a good place to start. You look great!
    This graphic cardigan that you are sporting is so snazzy! I like the way it's bold and plays with the bold colors you've got going on in your accessories. This is a really fun outfit!

    Oh and that kitten is too cute! Cats are my favorite animal, especially when they're all tiny and playful. :)

  16. I love the pattern of your cardigan with that pink scarf.
    I hardly ever wear my hair up either and now that my hair is longer I can definitely tell it's a bit hot in the summer...and fall... But I don't wear it up because I've been spoiled with a hairdresser as a mom and never learned how to do any cool things to my hair. haha

  23. You look great with your hair up. I rarely wear mine up because 1. my ears get cold 2. my hairs heavy and gives me a head ache 3. I have major wings around my face....but last week on Vacation I experimented with a few easy up-dos...and I didn't have a problem (It helps that the weather was hot, so my ears didn't get cold..haha)

    I love that you're going to try mixing brights and patterns...a great resolution!!
