With my work’s annual dinner coming up tomorrow, I spent some time styling possible outfits and this one came out on top. I’ve been obsessive with planning every detail of this event, but I worry about all the things I can’t control. For whatever reason, having my outfit determined for this event has given me some relief. I can hear my mom telling me to stop worrying about things I can’t control, but my control freak nature doesn’t allow me to do that so easily!
Back to the real issues…Any suggestions on accessories? This is what I initially liked, but I’m considering a black heel and different jewelry.

Washington St.

I slept in last Friday and missed most of the Black Friday deals, but by 5, I headed out to the Detroit area and did some shopping with Jack wearing the new scarf he got me and denim on denim. Anyone else start their holiday shopping yet? I ended up doing a majority of my shopping online on Thanksgiving between cooking and I’m already halfway done!

Take a Step

Last weekend I dealt with chronic crabbiness and boredom. I felt terrible with a migraine and poor Jack was sick with a cold, so we napped almost all weekend long with spurts of TV watching.
Jack was feeling better by Sunday and I pulled myself together for lunch at Five Guys, to grab coffee and fresh air. We also made a trip to the grocery store to do our Thanksgiving dinner shopping. For all these exciting festivities, I grabbed a pair of lavender jeans, chambray top and one of my many faux fur vests, a fall and winter staple of mine.

New Hair

I’ve been contemplating a hair color change for a while now and Kimberly from Sine Qua Non Salon read my mind and knew exactly what to do and get the “antique blonde” shade I was looking for. She also gave me some soft waves to rock with my new color. It’s nice to have a little change every once in a while.
If you’re a Chicagoan, check out one of Sine Qua Non Salons in Chicago and mention my blog name for a free eyebrow wax or conditioning treatment. I went to the Lincoln Park location where parking was easy, the salon had a cool vibe and they had great customer service, something I’ve struggled with before with at salons.
Kimberly was fantastic! I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a hair stylist in Chicago. Oh and if you notice the cool art on the walls when you visit, she’s the artist!
