Curls, Pleats, & Changing Seasons

I got a perm this morning. Why did I, someone with natural curls, get a perm? I have very inconsistent, fussy curls, so I only had some of my hair loosely permed to even out the texture some. In these pictures, it’s in its poofy, post treatment, wind-blown, frizzy state. I’m really excited to wash it two days from now and see the curls with a little more definition and less frizz…and push those bangs off my face. I just hope the curls still look alright when my hair gets longer – my stylist said it should grow out nicely, and maybe even look better when a bit longer. My goal is to get my hair pretty long again, so hopefully she’s right.

I really like this color combination. I was inspired by this outfit, from the blog M Loves M (though I went with an eggplant color rather than maroon). I’ve been browsing my style Pinterest board a lot lately – the transitional period between seasons always puts me in a bit of a rut because I’m still refreshing my memory of the warmer weather clothes I’ve had packed up, and I’m pretty sick of my winter clothes. Today was nearly 90˚F, though, so I think it’s about time to say goodbye to the more wintery items. Haha, the jump from cold weather to warm was so quick, I still walk outside expecting to need a coat.

See other ways I’ve styled this skirt here and here, and see how I’ve styled this cardigan and belt in another outfit here.

    I love the color combo here! Also, I’ve been looking for a pleated skirt like that. It looks great with the teal belt!
