Copy Cat

Well, hey there cuties! This weekend I had a bit of time off so I decided to have a bit of fun and recreate one of my favorite photographs from pinterest. It is a fabulous vintage lady who is obviously vivacious, exuberant and beautiful. Her hairstyle was so intriguing that I wanted to try it for myself, and then I tried to recreate the photo a bit! I had a lot of fun with this one and tomorrow's tutorial will be this hairstyle, so check back if you're interested in how to recreate this look for yourself!



Sean and I have had the past few days off. We had planned to go visit my grandparents, but both they and I ended up getting sick, so we decided not to go. It has been so nice having a couple of days to just get some projects done around the house as well as relax and recuperate a bit. Sean and I finally worked on putting up some pictures on our wall, which I've been wanting to do since we moved into our home. It just makes the space look so much more warm and personal when you surround yourself with things that you enjoy.  We still have some more things to hang, but it's definitely a start. It is just so time consuming!


I almost missed the important detail that the above gal decided to add to her ensemble-a bunch of flowers on either side of her pompadour roll! I thought it was the perfect thing to make a winter outfit seems just a bit fresher and I wanted to add a bit of color with mine. I'm starting to take note of those smaller details in vintage fashion photos-looking past just what dress the woman is wearing, and focusing more on how their hair is styled, what accessories they are sporting, how they are standing, etc. It's the little things!
BONUS: This gorgeous little clutch I'm carrying can be yours, just check it out here in my shop!


Phineas was watching through the window while we were taking photos...what a cutie!

Well, I tried, right?

Have a blessed Monday and don't forget to check out may hair tutorial tomorrow for tips on this style!

God bless,
KJA

I think the "bumper bangs" are actually called a pompadour roll :)

Seems like you had fun.
