A little cognac for a rainy day...

For other neutral ideas, you can always visit Megan Mae Daily to see other participants!
So, last night, I found out that my hair lady (stylist? hair cutter? woman responsible for reintroducing me to bangs, but also keeping me from doing anything too drastic when I was pregnant and couldn't find any hairstyle that looked good on me?) is moving to Minnesota. She and I had moved to Atlanta around the same time, and I was matched up with her blindly while booking an appointment at a salon down the street from the house Steve and I were renting at the time.

Five years later, and she's the only person who has touched my hair in the state of Georgia. I realize this is a complete non-problem in the grand scheme of things, but still...

I'm going to miss her.

And I don't know if I have it in me to break in a new hair lady after all of this time.

PS: Sorry for the terrible, terrible post titles this week. I promise, I'll try harder in the future.

  1. Oh how I love this skirt. It's just so pretty.

    Bummer about the hairstylist moving. I have been going to the same stylist for at least 7 or 8 years and I would be so sad to have to find another one. It's like a relationship, lol. Heather

  2. That is a very pretty skirt! And I like your post titles, I don't think they are horrible! :)

  3. Are you kidding me? The post titles have been great! =) I love that skirt. I have a hard time wearing tights with flowy skirts and dresses. They just never feel right on me. But you've inspired me to give it another try. =)

    And I would die if my stylist couldn't do my hair any more. It took me FOREVER to find her and then we developed a great friendship and I'd absolutely HATE to risk someone else cutting it. =( Good luck on your hunt to find someone new!

  4. Gorgeous skirt, and look at those insane heels! Lovely.

    My philosphy - It's just hair. I know you have to live with it, but hair grows. I walk into Mastercuts, never make an appointment and have nearly never walked out with anything I didn't like. Always go in with a plan and tell them exactly what you want. Maybe because I don't like to be too chatty when people do my hair? I dunno but I've generally been satisfied.

  5. When ever I hear the word cognac I think of the what does that say about me...ha!!

  6. I am in love with that skirt! It is gorgeous!

    I went an ENTIRE year without getting a hair cut because I was too nervous to let anyone on this side of ATL cut my hair. I only cut it because it got to the point that if I didn't get it cut, I'd shave it off :)

  7. I love this! Such petty shades together and very flattering silhouette.

  8. it really is hard to find a great stylist. i've gone thru so many. wish you luck in finding a new match! love the skirt. i think the whole look is great with the dark tights.

    What's the next line? Help write the story!

  9. This skirt is amazing! So simple and remixable, but I love the paper bag detail around the waistband!

  10. I'm a day or two behind on checking Fashion Challenge posts, but this is one of my favorite outfits I've seen for cognac! I just love your skirt and heels!

  11. loving the shades of brown here!!! you always look chic. and i feel your pain on the hair dresser. man, it's so hard to find one you like where they give you a haircut you love each time!
