Au Naturel, definition: being in natural style or condition. I'm pretty sure you can guess that I am referring to my hair here (style, not color...clearly). When left to it's own devices it just gets bigger and bigger throughout the day as it drys. I normally reserve this look for when I am running really late, but this morning I was just bored with my straight hair so I let Mother Nature take over. As for what I am wearing, I went to the mall last night so my BF could pick up a couple of shirts and I ended up being lured into Express by all of the bright Spring colors exploding out from the inside. I stumbled upon this skirt and snatched it up so stealth-like you'd think I was "fixin'" to steal it. I love it!! It's light gray, black, and Kelly green...and just happens to go perfectly with this great top (I found in San Fran at Forever 21). I obviously paired it with tights and a flowy, more conservative top for  my 9-5 today, but I think it would also look great with a black tank and strappy heels for a night out on the town. I'm looking forward to testing out its versatility (perhaps when I have a bit of a tan). The extrodinarily large hair is not the only thing that I switched up today. I am wearing silver. I rarely do that. Perhaps that's why my BFF/Photog, Carrie noticed my necklace today. No, no...that wasn't it. She noticed it because she seriously thought I was wearing a marijuana leaf around my neck. She was totally thrown off. I may have listened to The Grateful Dead station on Sirius XM all the way to work this morning, but I did not sport a pot leaf charm around my neck. For the record it is a lotus flower... and if you dry it up and try to sell if for $10 a bag, you'll probably get jumped (and be forced to find long-wear lipstick for your fat lip).

Oh, and I am going to draw a winner tomorrow for the Marthe Pinaire goodies, so if you are interested in signing up for it, just click here. :)

    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, wonderful blog!
