OOTD: Hi fall, it's me, Justine.

As if by miracle, Dallas had a cold front come through yesterday! It was amazing. 75 degrees and I almost considered the need for a sweater. It might not sound "cold' to some of you, but I cannot tell you how grateful I was to step outside in jeans (!!) and not sweat right through them. Getting in my car was not like walking through the gates of hell! Whooooppeee!!

(it's the little things, my readers. Little.)

Jeans: AE Super Skinnies
Flats: nicole (DSW) metallic buckle flats
Necklace: Topshop

I am quite intrigued, by the way, with this box hair color. It started out as a nice brown... then the blonde started showing through... and now it seems somewhat golden-like with red roots (you can kinda see it in the last picture if you click on it to make it bigger). Hmmm. I'm still ok with it considering the cost! But about this top... I've worn it before with shorts but I just love the way it looks with a fancy necklace and jeans. So cute! Plus it will be great with a chunky sweater when the temps get even colder than 75, sort of like they did on the product page of Nordie's site. (Which I'm not a huge fan of after the change. Thoughts?)

  1. That top is so freaking awesome. Love!
    I am still not sure about the Nordstrom site. I guess I was so used to the way it was before since it was that way for a long time.
    You hair is looking more blonde you are totally right. But I like it!

  2. Lucky girl! You guys got a cold front, and we got a hot one!
    Love this look, it's my go-to outfit. A pretty top, jeans, and darling little ballet flats. Perfect ♥

  3. I agree. I am not a fan of the new site! I guess it will just take some time to get used to it!

  4. Oooo girl, I am with you about yesterday! I came home and put on lounge pants instead of my normal stretchy-shorts! A BIG DEAL in Dallas in August!

    Also - a note on the boxed color - I've used it to save cash several times. I always love the first go round... then my hair starts feeling weird... and the second dye job never ends up looking as nice as the first. I have friends that have done the box dye for years and their hair looks great, but I've found it's hard for us "highlighted blonds" to keep the look up at home. I always end up back at the salon :(

    love the outfit. i'm not the hugest fan of the new nordie's site either. it's not quite as inviting as the old one, you know?
