Bangs + Burgundy

IMG_8670 So, obvious thing first...I got bangs! I've been away from the blog for a few days and while I was taking a break, this happened. I actually did it myself last night and having never cut my own hair before, I was pretty pleasantly surprised with how they turned out. I just felt like I needed a little drama in my 'do. My favorite part is that they add some more interest to an every day top knot, which is the preferred hairstyle of choice for women in Denmark. At first I thought it was just a style thing, but after seeing how windy it has been recently these past few days, I now realize its a necessity. But a stylish one!

Another current favorite is burgundy. Also know in the blogosphere as oxblood, I love seeing this color pop up starting in fall. It's a color that is still dark to fit in with the season, but is just as easy to work into your wardrobe as any other neutral. This Vero Moda cardigan adds some pop to an otherwise all-black outfit. I'm into it.

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!
