What I’m Wearing

Spring Vibes: Lighter Hair & Old Jeans

Spring is here in San Francisco (well, we never really had a winter) and the sunshine inspired me to go just a tad bit lighter with my hair – and, my gosh, I kind of love it. Coloring my hair is still a pretty big deal to me, as the first time I colored it was only 7 months ago, so for someone who has had dark brown hair for almost 30 years, this is quite a change. A huge, huge thank you to my stylist, Brian, at Population Salon for his amazing work. And congrats to them for opening up their second salon in the Mission! Local SF girls and guys, check them out – you won’t be disappointed!

Another thing I love about spring? The fact that I can pull out these jeans again. They’re about four years old and I’m still obsessed with them. It’s probably because they’re so long that I have to wear my highest platforms (5 inches high), causing my legs to look extra long (and leaving my co-workers wondering how I grew so much overnight).

PS: Behind the smile is a girl that got hit with a really, really bad cold/flu/bronchitis (really not sure what it is because I’m kind of bad about seeing a doctor unless I’m extremely, extremely ill). I had to stay home for half the week last week and I’m still coughing up some pretty nasty things a week later. Kind of makes me wonder if I should have gotten the flu shot after all…

Messy Hair Days

Ever have one of those really –  I mean really – crazy hair days? I do. My hair is neither curly nor straight and definitely requires some sort of maintenance in order to make it look presentable. I’m also not a morning person, so you can guess that I have my  share of mornings where I’m rushing out the door for my hour commute to work with wet hair in a bun or a side braid. And for those days where I can’t even manage to make those work, I have found that I have an insane love for hats.

Down to Basics

You could say that my lack of posting on this blog has partially been due to a little bit of a style slump and overall lack of blogging inspiration I’ve been feeling this year. I started this blog to document my daily personal style and to connect with like-minded women from around the world. Over the years, I have not only done that, but I have also had the opportunity to work with some of my favorite brands and designers.

And as Kitties + Couture approaches it’s fourth birthday next month, I’m left wondering what the future holds for this blog. Would a redesign snap me back into blogging more frequently with excitement? Would a focus on other verticals, such as home decor, travel, or beauty get my creative juices flowing again? Or is it time to bid farewell to this phase of Kitties + Couture and start a new personal project from scratch?
