Fashion,hair,Outfit,15 February 2017

I just booked another hair appointment. I used to have to refresh my hair twice a year, but all of a sudden I see myself booking new appointments every second month! Ok, I know winter and darkness makes my hair look dull faster as well as the fact that I’ve gone back and forth from pregnant to nursing to somewhat normal in just a few years. The steep changes in my hormone levels certainly leave marks (hair loss, hair growth and baby hair that gives me a very un- wanted little fringe), but I actually think it’s quite boring to waste time at the hairdresser so often. Especially when all I want is for my hair to look natural yet in a refreshened way. My own hair gets really flat and dull if I let it grow out au natural. A bit of highlight gives it exactly what I crave. Some extra volume an texture.

Every time I go I follow the same routine. Carefully done balayage highlights as well as a tone all over to make the base a little less grey. Now I just booked another appointment because I know I’ll feel a lot better when my hair feels good. Less styling, less makeup, less black outfits. Yes, the over all look kind of starts with the hair. Instantly brightens up the face and works as the perfect mood lifter (Yes, something so superficial actually can be the first trigger).

Although my hair kind of matches my skirt and new kicks, I’ll make sure to be a little less matchy-matchy and let go of my Goldielocks crown before new time.

While on the subject maximalism I have to say that there are only few things I like as much as cardigans and coats that tickle my ankles. It’s an elegant length that feel super feminine and at the same time daring. Daring because not so many people feel comfortable wearing ankle length coats, but personally I think it’s a nice statement piece that looks just as cute also if you are petite. If you are afraid to get lost in all the material material with the risk of making you look bulky, straight and something like a sausage I highly recommend wearing the coat open. Flaunting some leg is flattering and it gives it a more youthful look.This Andiata coat could be a bit longer on me, but it’s easily faked by pairing it with sneakers instead.

Other than going on about material things I have to tell you I’ve had some wonderful days with my family. Sometimes life with kids feel almost unbearable, but luckily just as many days if not more things roll smoothly. A good attitude is usually the reason (easier said than done I know), but it’s magical when you find yourself in those golden moments that make you want to burst out of joy and love or just laughter! I just got back home with the kids sleeping. One in the strollers and the other one in my arms. It was quite a walk back home, but I felt so empowered. Me and my kids. We are one hell of a team! Not afraid to say so. 

Extra love to all of you mamas out there! <3!
