Zig Zag, Red & Black Monday
Yes, it is another maxi dress. This summer maxi's have been my go to outfit. I think I am now seeing why some of you love dresses so much for their ease of wear. I coveted this one from the moment I saw it in the Chico's catalog. It is easy to dress up or down and I will be able to wear this in the fall with a black leather jacket and booties. The big plus is I got it on sale for half off, then an extra 30% off of the sale price.
Jacket: Coldwater Creek
Sandals: Think! Julia
A few of you have asked about my hair. After seeing so many other over 50 women with longer hair that look very attractive, I decided that I wanted to let it grow. I would like for it to be all one length except for my bangs. I have a long way to go because my last hair stylist decided that I need to have it thinned out and cut a lot of length off the top layers. Longer hair seems to be easier to style than really short hair. I am still undecided about the color. I really wish that all my hair was gray, but unfortunately I still have quite a lot of darker hair. I stopped coloring it and let it go natural, but it was just such a bland color, just mousy. Any one have any advice? It just seems like no matter whether I have blond or darker hair it is a lot of upkeep.
