How to Stay Comfortable When Dressing Up

It feels a little weird posting a sleeveless top when it's currently in the 40's, but you never know, we might have another warm weekend before it really gets cold. A sweater tank and ponte pants is one of my favorite combos in the fall because it looks dressed up but really, it's so comfy. I literally took a nap in this over the weekend. If you haven't heard of ponte pants, they're basically really thick leggings that look more like dress pants. We had a pair of wide-legged ponte pants that got passed around between all of my friends in high school (I really can't actually remember whose they were!) that we wore whenever we had to dress up. A real-life Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants ;) They were so much more comfortable than regular dress pants, and I've been on the hunt for a good replacement ever since.

Speaking of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, did I ever tell you that movie (well, the second one) was the catalyst for me dyeing my hair red? I mean, there were other factors, including being told by certain people that I already had red hair, but seeing Amber Tamblyn's beautiful red locks in the movie sent my sister and I to the drugstore to buy a box of dye. That first time I tried to match Amber/Tibby's color and went crazy Little Mermaid red, which looked terrible. Really, I look back at pictures from that semester in college and shudder. Since then I've always stuck with orangier shades. If you want to go more natural, an orange base (versus purple) is definitely the way to go - people always mistake my hair color for being natural! I definitely don't recommend this for everyone, but I actually dye my hair out of a box too. For years I've used L'Oreal Feria in copper shimmer. Please buy it too so that they never stop making it!

Not to be all over the place (edit, people, edit) but today is exciting because we're going to see Les Mis tonight! It's obviously not quite as fun as going to see Hamilton a couple weeks ago, but I'm still super excited - I remember loving the production when we went to see it in high school. One day more!
