Casual Wednesday: Fluctuating Temperatures

Spring in New England is kind of annoying.  When you wake up in the morning you are cold in your house.  You dress in layers and walk out the door and immediately start sweating.  Then you change into shorts and a cute summery top and an hour later the sun goes behind a cloud and you're freezing.  Don't even get me started on the alternating freezing rain and humid cloudy days!


I wore this on one of the hot outside/cold inside days.  I was actually going outside to take breaks in the sun to warm up.  This was the first day that I actually wore shorts and I think it was just wishful thinking about summer.  The flannel was a good layer inside where it was cooler and it helped with keeping the sun off of my shoulders when I did go outside.


I have had most of the things that I'm wearing forever with the exception of the navy tank top that I got at Nordstrom Rack not too long ago.  It is the kind with the built in shelf bra.  I am definitely dating myself with this next piece of information but the oldest piece in this outfit are those shorts and they are actually from Weathervane....yes, I bought shorts at the Weathervane while in college and I still have them.


A casual Wednesday wouldn't be complete without second day hair.  My curls didn't look too terrible when I woke up so I didn't want to brush them out.  I sprayed dry shampoo in and then just rubbed it in with my fingers on my scalp.  Other curly girls will sympathize with me not wanting to brush it through to create the giant frizzy puff ball look.  I twisted it back to keep the greasier parts off of my face and I think it came out pretty good.


Here is a close up of one of the twists.


I left a little out over my ear on the side opposite my part because there was too much hair to twist back without using a million bobby pins and if you do this with too much curly hair it looks cute above the bobby pins but then it explodes out from under them and you look ridiculous.  Volume and curls are good; hair sticking straight out to the side is bad.
