Today was largely devoted to nursing jet-lag with some vintage MTV (Laguna Beach and Parental Control marathons in the same day? Almost too good to be true). But since I have been feeling a little deflated about my appearance from all the traveling (a girl can only take so many days of oily skin and super flat hair without getting bummed), I also decided to devote some real time to getting dressed. This outfit, comprised of this Cynthia Rowley dress I managed to thrift for mere dollars a few months ago, is inspired both by Meg's post about playing with bright Miami colors with gold accents in her recent manicure and by the episode of the New Girl I watched on the flight yesterday, having exhausted all of the thriller options, as well as a documentary entitled "Alien Mummies" during the first five hours. Do you have Feelings on this show, readers? I thought I was going to be all like, ugh manic pixie dream girl whatever, but damn, Zooey has some great hair.
FYI: I achieved these no-heat curls by rolling some sponge curlers into freshly washed & blown out hair. I left them in for about a half hour, and I used some hair spray to finish. Easy!
