Heat Wave Fash

It’s hot here in the Northeast.  Like, fry an egg on the sidewalk, hot.  Fortunately, I’m working from home today and I can get away with shorts.  However, in case I have any video conferences, I like to look somewhat professional from the waist up.  I recently picked up these adorable cotton/linen blend BB Dakota shorts from shopbop that are perfect for this weather.  I paired them with a very light pink, gauze top which allowed me to stay covered on top but still very cool.  I imagined some rose gold sandals with this outfit but I haven’t made that acquisition yet so I settled for leopard flats.  I love the combo of jade green and light pink and am so glad to stay fresh in this blistering heat. How do you stay cool during heat waves?

Red Jeans – And FINALLY, a Haircut!

I’m going to admit something very embarrassing. Before today, I hadn’t cut my hair for almost an entire year.  I cut it about a week before my wedding and our 1st anniversary is in 2 weeks.  Worse yet, I had it cut all one length – not a good look for my sometimes curly hair.  Since, I’d saved on an entire year’s worth of no haircuts, I decided to splurge on this last one.  After some research I decided I’d go to the owner of the Girl Loves Boy Salon in Summit, NJ – Shahe Kasparian.  And I’ve gotta say, it was a truly great experience.  First, he took a look at my hair, and my face and explained to me why my hair shouldn’t be as long as it was.  Apparently, for my face shape, my height and my hair type, my hair shouldn’t be longer than a face length past my face… does that make sense? Maybe this will help:

Also, he said I should never cut my hair one length again — that I need some dimension and an opportunity to create texture.  I told him that I once got bangs and he cringed – he said definitely not for my face shape and because of the “wave” i have in my hairline — better known as my cowlick. All in all it was a very enlightening session.  I place a high value on experts who can share with me some of the science behind what they do and Shahe did not disappoint! And I love my new haircut!

Note: the lighting in these makes my hair look brown but it's still black as ever.

In other news, I worked from home today as I had no physical meetings (thank God for Cisco Jabber Video!) so I dressed down a bit.

Casual in Leopard

I’m in New Haven with my team this week – the home of Yale – for a team meeting. I got up early and went for a run and was greeted by gorgeous architecture.

The rest of the day, we are holed up in a meeting room so I wanted to be comfortable but still professional.  I went with denim trousers, a white blouse and a brown blazer.  I added the turquoise necklace for a pop of color and finally broke in my leopard flats!
