Think Pink, well pops of it!

4:00 AM

Hat:  CN Direct // Sweater:  Ralph Lauren // Boots:  Dolce Vita

We all know that I love pink, I’ve talked about it a million times here on the blog.  When I saw this hat I knew I had to have it.  I love the color pink, the actual shape and style of the hat, and how can you not like the little fur ball on top!  It’s really comfortable and super warm, so that’s great for all of these cold days ahead.  You have to check out CN Direct!  They have the greatest things!

In the winter time my outfits go one of two ways, I either dress up to the nines with tights and dresses/skirts and heels, or I keep it casual and comfy with an oversized sweater/cardigan and leggings/pants with boots!  This would be the perfect look for either a nice relaxing day, a walk in the park, or even if you are meeting up with a friend for lunch.  Just remember about hat hair haha!

Now, this is probably the first time in months that I don’t have extensions in.  Crazy right?  It’s such a difference from my longer hair.  I can never recognize myself in photos when I see my short hair.  Lately I’ve been trying to grow it out, I mean it’s finally long enough to put in a messy bun without having to use a bunch of bobby pins to keep half of my hair from falling out of the hair tie.  I look at old pictures of me with my super short hair and I’m always so surprised at how much it has grown in less than a year.  See for everyone who hasn’t been following my blog for a while you didn’t see me with my short hair.  Well, now you do!

Now, I wanted to mention something a little personal.  Today is January 5th.  Three years ago today I lost someone extremely close to me.  If you look at the pages at the top of my blog, there’s one called dedication.  This blog is dedicated to Dan.  It was thanks to Dan that I changed my life.  It is thanks to him that I live a more positive life and he helped me get through some difficult times in my life while battling cancer.  I didn’t know he had cancer because we had reconnected after college and it was only a few months before he had lost his battle.  After the wake and everything and saying goodbye one last time I decided that I needed to change my life.  I had gone through so much the months prior that I decided if I had the strength to go through that, I can change my life for the positive.  Ever since then whenever something happens and I have that feeling of giving up or negativity I always think of Dan.  He made a mark on my life and I will never forget him and his beautiful personality.  Rest in peace Dan.
