random ootd photo & new hair!

It's summer time and the living is easy.  Let's have a random style related outfit of the day post, shall we?

The big news is (drum roll please):

I got my first hair cut in 4 years!

Yup, that's right, four years ago I got my last cut before chemo. After treatment my hair grew back very slowly, and very differently from how it was.  First it came in tight little curls, then course, wirey waves.  It didn't grow evenly either.  So I simply trimmed my bangs and kept cutting off strange wayward waves until something akin to my previous hair emerged.  It was finally time to get a real grown up hairstyle again.  The result is this simple layered bob.  I like it...though it is a wee bit shorter than anticipated. 

Anyway, I wore this outfit last week when the weather took a cooler turn.  We've been calling this old zebra striped blouse from Kohls my magic top...it seems to go with everything...paired with any color cardigan it works.  It has also fit me at several different weights -- yeah, it really is magic.

The new lightweight cropped cardi is from Target and I'm in love with the orange color.

My dark jeans are Sante Fe bootcut from the Avenue.  The bone colored Dansko Sissy sandals are thrifted and I live in them for the summer...truly the most comfy pair of shoes I own.  I often find them for sale new on eBay and have them in other colors. 

So, there you go, an ootd.  Hope everyone enjoys these early days of summer!

YAY!! IT is so unbelievably good to see you and an OOTD! You look gorgeous, and I love the orange :)

Kayleigh said...

Thanks Kendra, you're so sweet :) I really think orange is my new fave color...I just seem very drawn to it lately.

Looking good Kayleigh, but what is OOTD? x

Kayleigh said...

Jean -- thanks so much!

Oh, and I have to confess, I just learned this recently myself, lol...it stands for "outfit of the day"

Glad I'm not the only one who didn't know ;p

How fun! I love the orange cardigan - such a great colour. Your hair looks lovely.

Kayleigh said...

Thank you Sheila! Felt like old times :)

WOW, you look just beauuutiful!! Love the haircut too! It suits you very well. ^_^

I really have to get one of these little boleros like the one you're wearing. I saw those at Target recently but didn't have time to get one. But after seeing your pic I'm determined to go get a few before they run out of them!

Kayleigh said...

Hi Anusha -- thanks :D

Yes, they DO run out very quickly...it's rather annoying, lol. For whatever reason I've never found a shrug that works on me, but these do. They even work on my petite little mom, too. Hope you can grab some!

Great outfit! I really need to get my hands on a pair of these sandals. I've had the clogs and maryjanes - they were always comfy!
