Bad things happen in threes

Shirt: Old Navy
T-Shirt: Crossroads
Leggings: H&M
Boots: Ebay
Bag: Thrifted
Necklace: Renegade Craft Fair

This outfit is a reflection of the weird weather we've been getting in the Midwest. I hate wasting cute outfits on rainy days, so this is a simple and easy outfit when the day doesn't matter. I have a funny story about the hairdo (Okay it's actually kind of embarrassing) - When I was around 7 or 8 years old, I started wearing my hair in a bun every single day. This did not change until the 10th grade. That's basically 8 years of the same hairdo! After that, I had my hair above shoulder length for about 3 years and have been growing it out ever since. I just think it's funny that all of a sudden it's cool and fashionable to wear your hair in a bun (or "top knot" for the trend goers). I tried pretty hard to not go back to the bun, mostly because I was so tired of getting picked on about my lack of hairstyle. The good thing is that I'm getting more and more comfortable wearing it out in public, and I don't think it looks that bad if it's done with the right outfit and attitude.

The t-shirt I'm wearing had me completely smitten when I found it on the rack at Crossroads. It totally reminded me of Twin Peaks when I first saw it. I love a good graphic tee, and this one is the perfect length for a legging outfit when I don't have time to think about what I'm going to wear.

Since I'm on a roll with the horse-talk, I really love this ASOS Painted Horses Bangle. I've never been a big bracelet kind of gal, but I'm considering ordering this. I think it would be a nice piece for the summer!
