Determination

Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: H&M | Shoes: Missoni for Target via eBay ($1.30!!) | Bag: Ninewest

I'm a pretty determined gal... My husband calls it "stubborn", but I think "determined" sounds a whole lot better, don't you? Me too. 

In case you haven't noticed, I don't do much with my hair. The simplest styles you see are usually birthed out of sheer frustration at how little I know about styling my own hair. For these photos, though, I was determined to wear it differently, even if it meant just doing a bun which, by the way, is advanced hair styling for me. After finally getting my hair into a decent bun, the rain started to pour. Did that stop me from taking photos? Of course not. I was determined. So here I am, pictured on my tiny front porch with a high bun hiding from the rain in poor lighting, all for the sake of today's post. Yes, I do want a cookie.

  1. I really admire that you were so determined to do this post! Keep it up. It's a good look on you! The scripture was very timely! I'll be sure to get you that cookie later! Love you :)

  7. i too am an admirer of your hair typhanie. and it really does always look good. you don't frizz in humidity, when you need a perm your roots are nappy. a bit jealous, but i'm still rejoicing with you for great hair genes :-) and you did do a bun again! :-) it suits you, really. and semantics. lol. determined is definitely "softer" than the counterpart. and couldn't have thought of a better scripture to use for this blog. love it. 1.30 for shoes! wow....ok, please text email me and deals like this w/ ebay. and do you have two parties today w/ this post? it works. ok and one more thing, there are no h&m stores in south florida are there?

    1. Umm... I don't think I have two parties... But sometimes two parties can work (i.e. pattern mixing). I got this h&m skirt during a trip to CA and I usually got to h&m in NY, but there are also locations now in West Palm and one is opening in Aventura :)
