Janelle In Real Life: Born to be a Brunette.


Born to be a Brunette.

Oh hey there! I feel like it's been foreverrrr since I've written a post (but really, it's been 4 days) and I have lots of things to say! Ok maybe not lots, but a few things at least.
My husband sent me {this} espn article yesterday because, whadda ya know, Michael Phelps and I encountered the same injury. Yes it's true the big, strong Olympian hurt his PINKY TOE and is wearing a boot cast. A boot cast, my friends!! This just makes me feel so validated. I don't feel like a total wimp for calling my husband and asking him to come home for a few hours because my pinky toe injury had me incapacitated and I couldn't chase my baby around. It's the small victories, people.
Anyway, I have a fun summer ensemble for you... so check it out!

 Can we stop for a second and talk about how much I hate it when my shirt creeps up and you can see my undershirt and I don't notice? Because I really don't like that. 

Where she got it: top: h&m // jeans: nordstrom // necklace: to adorn via hawthorne collection (here) // bracelet: cotton on

And incase you didn't notice, I have dark hair again! I just wasn't feeling the light color that I had and I tried to wait it out as long as I could thinking that eventually it would grow on me... but it didn't. I spent the big bucks and went to a salon but ohhh was it worth it. So sue me for not waiting until fall to go dark! I love having dark hair, we are just a match made in heaven.

Also, I'm loving the J Crew inspired fan fringe necklace! I just got it a few days ago and I've already worn it twice. It's big and bright, but you'd be surprised with how many things in my closet it goes with. I'm definitely a fan of the $9.99 price tag as well!

  9. I love this outfit! I'm obsessed with stripes. And the fan fringe necklace, such a good deal! I just bought one recently and I love it! And the dark hair looks great on you! You also make me want to get bangs.. It's always an inner battle of mine.. Bangs, or no bangs..
