Hair-Inspired

I was feeling very Victorian on this rainy Saturday. I find more and more that my hairstyle dictates what kind of outfit I want to wear. I've been experimenting a lot lately with my hair and it always puts in a different state of mind. I've been working on tutorials, so hopefully I will have some up soon!


This blouse is probably the most dreamy, silky thing I've ever worn. I felt so fancy in it all day long. It's just a synthetic polyester, but it mimics a satin-y texture so well.





I have some exciting news to share! Sean and I got an offer accepted on a house! I will share more pictures and details of the house soon, but we are so very happy about it. It is a really cute house painted in a light blue color and it's a good compromise between the two of us and what we like. I can't wait to share more with you all soon!

God Bless!
KJA

KATIE. GIRL. You look like a beautiful Victorian model in these photos. Seriously, your hair is so professional and photo-esque looking... That first picture could be in an editorial or something. I'm not even playin'!

I adore your lipstick as well. You just really know how to dress yourself well and put on makeup well. You have such a penchant for it!

A light blue house sounds lovely (especially on days where the sky isn't such a lovely blue color, ehe!). I'm so glad that you finally settled on something, yaaaay! That must be a lot of pressure off you, huh? :)

You always have the best hair. I absolutely love that it always matches your outfit--you put so much thought into it! Also, you're kind of killing me with that fabulous blazer, darling.
