Weekend Duds & Carol Brady

 I don't think I mentioned that I received an unsavory haircut a few months ago. As usual, I went into the salon and asked them to give me JUST A TRIM as I'm trying to grow it out and don't like the layers around my face. So what does she go and do? Trim up the layers around my face to almost my ear lobe. UGH. Thank you, Lady- for once again giving me the look that every client HATES yet every hair dresser is dying to cut: the Carol Brady.

So in the meantime, I've been trying to do everything I can to hide the short layers while they grow on my flammable hay head. And because I get a little bit lazier with my hair with each passing year, this usually means taking a curling iron and waving them around enough so they fade away into the night. At least that's what I try to do anyway.

People are always trying to raise money for diseases and trees...not to get all 'Miss Congeniality' on you but I'd like to see some legislation which maps out harsher punishments for hair stylists who violate your requests. I would even DOUBLE my typical political donation. So that's right whoever gets that bill going... 10 big ones.

Anyway, I thought about my hair a lot this weekend as I actually went out Friday and Saturday last weekend. Which is rare for me in my old age. But, the Boy was out of town at a Bachelor party and I had friends with fun plans so I decided I was game and that the fresh air would do me and Carol Brady some good.
^Friday night outfit-I swore I would take pics of what I wore all weekend for my blog hence the classic serial killer expression that is my mirror pic photo go-to apparently!- and snack before heading out around 10 pm: Greek Yogurt with Pomegranates & Blackberries
^Waiting for my ride and watching some 'Modern Family'.
^Left: Friday night at a hip hop venue. Right: Saturday morning and off to the pool. I slept in my makeup on accident so it was no makeup and sunglasses alllllll day Sat.
^Left: What I wore to a low-key venue on Saturday night. Middle: My girlfriend and Me watching our other girlfriend sing at the Lounge. Instagram always makes my skin look so dewy, God Bless it. (Instagram @CaitieLady08) Right: My original yellow outfit was not to be- walked right past my eyeshadow brush and had to change last minute.
So anyways- that was last weekend. Besides of course holing up with my Mom and Sister on Sunday over Mimosas, Quiche and Cupcakes (bloody 'ell we are a huge cliche) and enjoying our time together for the Mommy Holiday. It was great to see them. But of course my lovely older Sister made sure to remind me that I'm a middle child and therefore, I suck.

"Caitlin, I'm sorry- but I'm cleaning the tops of your cupboards, I just have to. It's so gross"
"Caitlin, why does that area by the couch smell of baloney?"
"Caitlin, everyone knows you suck at wrapping gifts! Don't get so defensive, just own it! It's sooo you."

For the record, we do not eat baloney at my house. And for the record, my gift wrapping is the ugliest thing in the world, so I'll give her a pass on that one.

Happy Tuesday guys- just remember: Don't play ball in the house.

I know I say this all the time, but it's so true...I love you. You have like the best personality and views on life {I am so with you regarding the harsh punishment for hairstylists}. Also pertinent...your style, your makeup - love, love, love! You look incredible! So glad you had a happy weekend, lady! :)

hahaha so your couch has a first name like the baloney?

I love the look and colour of your tight skirt with the peplum and the top you paired it with. The greek yogurt with pomegranates and blackberries is healthful. Your eye-makeup looks beautiful. I slept in my makeup once too - at the house of a woman I'd just met far from my home after a New Year's Eve out in full drag (after we'd been tossed out of a bar - I'll spare you the details) - a fond memory from my drinking days. Your hairdresser sounds as bad as the one played by Heather Graham as Jo in the movie "Say It Isn't So". It looks like you had a good time out with the girls while The Boy was out with the boys. Your Saturday morning dress is pretty and your sunnies look nice. Your Saturday night outfit looks nice too.

Carol Brady!?! I laughed so hard... Does NOT look like that btw!

Agree.. we need a bill for bad hair stylists. Good idea!

You take the best selfies.

And IG + Dewey skin is the best ever.
