A New Me

{Boots: J Shoes -- Sweater: Target -- Hat: Vintage -- Clip: Etsy} 

So you might have noticed something a bit different? Well if not, scroll back up! I know it's kind of camouflaged in this first picture, but I've chopped off all my hair! I've really felt the need for a change and donating all my hair to Locks of Love seemed like a perfect way to begin the "new" me. For those of you who do not know about this organization they take donations of hair and use them to make wigs for people who are suffering from hair loss due to cancer. You can read more about them here. I'm still trying to get used to this new length, but I'm thinking of dying my hair again. I'm definitely headed towards blue right now, might as well live it up while I am young right? What do you guys think though? Have you ever dyed your hair blue? Let me know!

The second thing I would like to mention today is these amazing boots. I literally can't get over how amazing they look and how comfortable they are. The best part of all is that I purchased these lovely J Shoes at the Salvation Army! Yep, these bad boys were only twenty dollars. Talk about hitting thrift store gold. I should also mention that the boots were BRAND NEW. They had never been worn so now they are fit just to me. Literally have been bragging about them to everyone, which I am sure has gotten annoying by now! But I mean, what a steal. This is why I love secondhand stores, you never know what you will find! 

Lastly, totally loving this deer motif. Well, lately, I have been into anything with animal print to be honest. Something about autumn makes me want to wear squirrels and deers. Also wearing giant sweaters as dresses has been my go to when I just want to be warm and cozy. It might not be the most fashionable choice out there, but I still believe it looks cute and makes others feel jealous of comfy I am.

I'd like to end todays post with a quote that has been on my mind lately:
“Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.”

Have a great weekend everyone!

Drum Roll Please!

Lovely followers and fellow bloggers,

I am back! This has been a long time coming, and I am sorry for my terribly prolonged absence, but I'm glad to say I'm finally getting back on track. I know my disappearance was abrupt and I'm sorry I left everyone without a reason behind my hiatus. I took the time off to really reevaluate what I want in life. Luckily blogging made the cut for my future endeavors! I'd like to begin my "new" blogging career with nothing other than an outfit post!

Here is an outfit I wore the other day...
{Boots: Dr. Martens -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Jacket: Modcloth -- Cap: H&M}

This outfit has really been my go to over the past few months as the weather got chillier and the leaves began to fall. I have a lot of new staple pieces that I am excited to share with you all! I even managed to snag a Michael Kors coat for 20 dollars. Eee!

Did I mention how much I have missed you guys? What have you been up to? Make sure to link me if you any of you got a new blog, I'd love to check it out. Also, thank you for putting up with my absence 

Yours truly,
