When colorblocking became a major trend in 2012 (or 2011 – I just had a birthday so I’m old and I can’t remember) I was a bit miffed. Because I’ve always worn bright colors together. And when I was doing it in 8th grade, there wasn’t a fancy name for it.
Well, now I propose a new trend for the new year – Monochromatic. And not just all black. All grey, all blue, and yes…all pink. I just need a fancy name for it. Monochromaticism? Linear colorway? I’ll work on it.

I’m sure more than one person thought I was colorblind when I wore this on Monday. Days later, I’m still trying to decide if this is a genius color pairing, or just a big mess.

You know the best part of getting a new bed? Deciding to get a new bed and then picking it out. You know the worst part of getting a new bed? Absolutely everything else that follows, from picking up the bed to getting rid of the old one to putting together the new one. I’m still sore from all the heavy lifting. But I am sleeping well in my new bed!
Don’t I look well-rested?

I love a new version of an old favorite. Basic button-down shirt, meet jailhouse stripes.
The inspiration for my minimalist color scheme? A certain feline lady I know who always looks chic. See below as proof.

Yesterday I finally made it out to a friend’s new salon. It is so cool to see friends opening up their own businesses! The salon, Verde Salon, is super cute. If you’re in Quincy, I higher recommend giving it a try. After getting my relaxer touch-up, I finally got a chance to try out Kevin Murphy’s Color Bug. It’s a hair chalk/powder that sticks onto your hair (especially when helped with a little pomade and hairspray) and gives you fun, temporary color. I’ve been aching to try it out, and I actually brought home the pink but I’m not completely sold on it yet. It’s supposed to stick to your hair and not transfer onto your clothes but my denim shirt says another story. But still, it’s cool and I think playing around with different ways to apply will be worth the time. Also, coming home with pink tips and scaring my mother? Priceless.
As for the outfit. I picked this outfit before I knew I’d be coming home with pink hair. But it all works so well together, right?
