Azure Garden

I am loving this jean bustier.  I found it at the thrift shops last weekend. It's not vintage but Jeeze how versatile it is!  I found this skirt and these shoes in the same shop, this whole outfit just sitting (in opposite corners) waiting to be snatched up.  Goodness I love my life.  This top will probably be a regular in my wardrobe for the entire summer.  I don't wear jean too much, but it seems to be the perfect dose and the perfectly structured element to mix with flowy skirts and florals.  I am so enjoying this warm weather!

Getting my hair lightened a bit more and my roots touched up today.  I am excited to continue getting blonder! Funny though, I had washed my hair last Friday and wasn't going to wash it till my apt. today (so you know, every 4th day is what I have been averaging) but I texted my girl yesterday to ask if she wanted it clean and told her the last time I washed it was Friday.  She seemed pretty grossed out, "UM, ya, clean hair please." Its like I have gotten so used to the grease and texture that it doesn't even seem gross to me anymore! Everyone I tell "I have not washed my hair for 4 days!" Seems SO grossed out and always asks WHY??!!  Oh blogland, I am so happy you get me! Thank you for not judging me (or at least doing it quietly to yourself!) It means a lot to me that I can tell you all my quirky things and It just gets accepted. . . or even praised!

{EDIT:  My hair apt went great and my hair girl clarified, it was not the grease she was worried about but the product build up.  She was not grossed out and fully supports not washing for many days.}

Shirt: Azure, thrifted
Skirt: vintage thrifted (a dress in a similar print is in my shop)

I'm surprised that she wanted it clean. When I used to have blond highlights, my stylist preferred working with dirty hair.

I love your skirt. It's so cheerful!

Corie said...

It's a first for me...I really love the bustier. It's different, cute, and soooo stylish!

The whole outfit is just plain cute!

Erin said...

just cause she's a hairdresser doesn't mean she knows everything about hair or what's best for hair. she knows what's best to put money in her pocket. you should enlighten her while she lightens you!

Jolie said...

Lucky is your middle name girl, you find the cutest pieces while shopping or maybe they find you! Adorable bustier!
btw.. as a stylist she should know that your hair should not be washed ever day. My hair would be so dry and lifeless if I did that. We get ya girl!

This is a fantastic look. Denim and floral are my absolute favorite trends.

Such a cool outfit! Looks like a dress...they are so made for each other.

I can go a week without washing my hair. I think it's awesome!

Fia said...

I do get you! Ever since I had my daughter, I've been more concerned about how unhealthy modern "hygiene" is and I've made changes in both habits and products. Funny how people are only grossed out when they know. It's more the concept rather than reality that disgusts them.

Keira said...

Cutest. Top. Ever.

And I only wash my hair twice a week, so totally get it. I use dry shampoo in between washes just to freshen it up.

Kimberellie said...

LOVE this look times a billion. Yes. Your life IS lovely. And so are you. Probably a connection there. ;-)

beautiful beautiful skirt. And sometimes (don't tell anyone) I go a whole WEEK without washing my hair!

Kyla said...

I'm right there with you on the every four days hair wash. I actually lose track in between washes. It's so long now, I can't imagine washing it more often. And I quite like it dirty thankyouverymuch :)

Pawi Macarena said...

Django et Coco said...

i love not washing my hair...my hair gets bigger and curlier and better the more i don't wash it (to a point obviously then it's just greasy haha)

Jules @ Lovely Las Vegas said...

Fun, I love this outfit!

And your hair always looks lovely -washed or not : ).

Trishna said...

The bustier really is very unique!!!

the hollister abolisher said...

Love the shirt:)

Hey atleast you don't start to stink, I have this one friend that sometimes forgets when she last showered. When she starts stinking I'm like "um, go take a shower."

Amanda said...

I think you may pull of that jean bustier better than anyone, seriously! It looks great on you :]

Ha, the hair girl story is funny...glad she supports the not washing as well!

number the first said...

emma j said...

Bad Taste Toast said...

Florals and denim always work, I love this combo! You look lovely :)

Emily said...

So Stinkin' Cute!

MaryLaura said...

I love love love that top! Was it made from something else, or is it merely a top that looks like a pair of jeans? I wonder how hard it would be to create from an old pair??
Also, I had a roommate in college who would only wash her hair once a week! I don't know if I could get away with it, but I definitely applaud you.

Meg said...

Darling, I am jealous! I wish I could go for 4 days without washing my hair, but after a single day my bangs get so greasy. I think your hair looks good all the time.
