Rain, Day 8,472

Yes, it's still raining. I suppose it's actually more like day five, but it might as well be day 8,472 because it feels like it's been forever.

The last time I remember it raining for a solid week was April in 2006. I was in Boston, I didn't own rain boots and at some point during the week I forgot my only umbrella on a bus. It's a miracle I survived.

There is a promise of sun for Saturday, which will be great for my Brother's Wedding. Speaking of which, I need to decide how I'm going to have my hair done (there will be a professional involved). Here are a few photos I found that I might like, but really, I'm clueless. Any thoughts on what to do with my massive mane?

It has been raining here for about a month! I can't stand it anymore! How cool is that necklace? It adds such pizazz to your outfit!

I think the second hairstyle would look beautiful on you.

The second hairstyle is gorgeous!

calypso12 said...

First one!

eek said...

Sorry about all the rain...we could use some down here!

I'm so unimaginative with hair styling - hence, the short hair. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Fabulous scallops, btw!

Courtney Erin said...

I think you would so rock the second hairstyle - I would love to see that on you! The rainy, humid weather has gotten into my hair and it's a straggly, limp disaster! On the plus side, I love the scalloped jacket.

OMG you have to do the wispy fishtail braided one! I love the idea of this hairstyle on dark hair, and you love a good braid, don't you??

The scalloped edges on this jacket are amazing, as are those pants on you...looking good, lady!

It's been raining a lot in SoCal too....past 3 days more off than on. If I had your shoes I may or may not be feeling a lot better about it!

Hope it's nice and sunny on your brother's big day :)

Beatriz Craven... That Girl in Pearls said...

Girl.... I feel you. Coming from a woman who also has "massive hair". Before my wedding, my stylist suggested that I actually get my hair thinned out to make it easier for styling. I had never done that before. I could not believe the difference. I have no idea if you have the opportunity to do that or not, but if you get it done right, it can totally ease your life. At first I freaked. I tend to trust people and let them thin to their little heart's content. I reached back and instead of feeling the usual horse tail, I felt like I had white girl hair. Eek! Panic! But, no, it was beautiful, still super thick, just not ridiculous-impossible thick.

If all else fails, I have typically tended to steer clear from updos. With such weighty hair, it ends up being super weighty and falls down even with 500 bobby pins in place. Maybe go wavy? Just a thought.

Hope that helps!
B.

I love that pretty pink color of your top. Your pictures are always super gorgeous too. I need photography lessons haha. My boyfriend just bought me the photography for dummies book lol.

Kavery said...

The pink is such a pretty shade and was made for you . Love the one-of-a-kind neckpiece. Hope it does stop raining there. I'm dreading the winter rain that is due here soon.

Claire said...

Style Eyes said...

I love that necklace, looks great with that top.

I hope you get some sunny weather for your brothers wedding

I have really thick hair too and find it difficult to find ways to put it up. I think your hair looks great down. How about with a beautful jewelled hair clip?

Ramona said...

We having in Ireland gloomy days as well for a long time :( I'm so looking forward to sunny, warm days.

You're such a beauty. I love your scalloped jacket and your platform sandals <3

Most of all I love last one hairstyle.

Your whole outfit works so well, I love each piece and the overall look. The last hairstyle gets my vote. They're all pretty but the last one is AMAZING.

I love your necklace. The Taylor Swift hairstyle would look good on you.

Jamie said...

I am LOVING that necklace!!!
And for hair I think Taylor Swift's side bun is perfection!

Krystal said...

that necklace is like, perfect for that outfit!

Rachel said...

That hairstyle will look great on you! It's so pretty!

Mrs. J said...

The rain has really been getting on my nerves over here too. Very cute outfit and I love the scallop edge blazer. I need a tassel necklace, it will definitely be another DIY project.

I choose the 1st picture I love the loose waves!

Amber Blue Bird said...

i hope the rain clears up for your brothers wedding although rain on the bid day is supposed to be lucky. I will like Taylors do and I think it would look very pretty on you.

tinajo said...

Very cute outfit - love that necklace! :-)

Piper Alexander said...

There's the scalloped jacket! Looks great! Agree w/LikeSpinningPlates, your pictures are awesome. I'm having blog envy over your pictures.

Hairstyle - My vote is for any BUT the last one. I'm not a fan of the messy, looks like you slept in your hairstyle from yesterday, look.

BTW, you're like my favorite blogger right now.

rlutz said...

Are those the new shoes you were tweeting about...love them!! Very cool necklace and I love the scalloped edges on that great blazer!

Rebecca said...

I think that the second 'do would look great on you.

Meggstatus said...

Oh my gosh, your trousers are so perfect! And I love the necklace it totally completes the look.

Elaine said...

Love the necklace! And that pink is so pretty on you.

Shea said...

Oh, I'm so jealous of your long, pretty locks! I love that look that Taylor Swift has going on--I bet that would look great on you! I love the colors you have on, the coral really pops against the black and cream. I hope the rain goes away soon!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I saw sun today, and it was amazing. I love you top (and not just because it's the same color as mine) and that scalloped blazer is so cool! It's a lot less structured than I imagined it would be-- very soft and flowy! My favorite style is #2, the loose french braid.. I think that would look amazing on you!

I have a lot of nicknames, my favorite is Megs. said...

That necklace is awesome! Love it!
