Four Subjects

Hair. Shoes. Shopping. Appearance
After days of talking about getting my hair done, finally here's a photo. It's from my phone and it was right as I was leaving the salon. I had it colored and long layers put in. Maybe one day I'll actually take a photo of the back. Haha!
Ok, let's talk shoes. Apparently the IT shoe of the season is a nude/tan high heel. Well I have a dress that I'm taking to wear while in California and that color shoe is what needs to be worn with it. For the last month and a half, I've looked every where for a pair. Every.Single.Store was SOLD OUT. I then went online and every online store was also sold out in my size. Boo! 

Finally this week, while I was out shopping with my friend Erica I found the most amazing pair. They were the last ones and being used as the display. I tried them on... they were half a size too big. So... we hit up one last store and by this point I was desperate. I told Erica, "If they have anything in the nude color, I'm taking them." Well my friends we walk in there and they have a tan pair of heels, on sale, on display and the last ones in my size. Not exactly what I was going for but they'll work. What do you think? 

I'm not completely in love with them but they're cute. Now I just need to buy a new beach towel, another bathing suit and pack for the trip! So much to do, so little time! I'm starting to stress a little bit! Thankfully, the day before we leave, I'm going to be able to hit up one of my favorite stores Forever 21 and hopefully find some great last minute tops to wear. 

Operation Tan is in full swing and after two days of tanning, getting a shade darker concealer and a new bronzer one of my co-workers committed that I was looking a little tanner. Well hallelujah! Maybe there's still hope! Maybe I won't be going to California looking like Casper after all. 4 more days of tanning to go...

Your hair looks great- very summery! And those shoes... love them. You just reminded me too I want to hit up the tanning place today. I go maybe once every two or three weeks and I want to try to use up my last one before I move "home" for the summer.

Love the hair. Love the shoes! I didn't know nude heels were the "It" shoe this season...I bought a pair last year! Apparently I'm just ahead of the times! Too bad I won't be wearing them anytime soon...heels and pregnant women aren't the best of ideas.

GREAT shoes! And hair.. yep, you'll fit right in while in California ;) I'm jealous - i've done nothing to look "summery" except buy a pair of "FitFlops" to tone up my legs. but they are horribly pale, so i don't want to show them off! Ugh
