Haircut, haircut! I always feel a great deal more like myself after a haircut, and it’s so refreshing to not have to fuss with it very much. Maybe that means I should get my hair cut more often than every six weeks, but the palpable relief of having the hair off is just about worth an extra week or two of being annoyed with it.
I still love these PANTS, by the way. I wish they were a little higher-rise, but I feel somewhat resigned to a life of low-rise pants because of my long torso and hip-to-waist ratio. Anybody out there have good recs for high-waisted jeans or work pants that you love?
Oh unicorn friend, won’t you help me in my quest for pants?
Also, after getting haircuts, naturally Mike and I went over to the ice cream shop a few doors down to get a snack. I ended up with ube ice cream, made from purple yam–it was really tasty, with a subtle, sweet-starchy flavor, and was waaaaay more purple than this photograph would lead you to believe.

The hat makes me look a little Boy George-y in the top picture, doesn’t it? Karma chamel-Miaaaaaa…
I don’t remember what we did on Sunday in the slightest, other than probably packing stuff up to move. We’ve had a warm streak here in California recently (hello there, visible and frightening sign of global warming!), and it was really kind of too pleasant for such a warm sweater, but I wanted to wear it at least one more time in this 30-for-30 since it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting much below the sixties for the next week or two.
I’ve mostly been doing well in curtailing my shopping–being too busy for it helps–but Mike and I did recently stop at a local outlet mall because the Van Heusen was going out of business and everything was wicked cheap. I picked up a few camisoles, an awesome button-front shirt, and this leopard-print belt, which may be my first official leopard-print anything. Welcome me into the club, people! What sold me is that it’s got adjustable straps in the back, which turned out to be kind of hard to slide but which mean I can change it from hip-length to waist-length with relative ease. Ostensible remixability, ho!
We had Monday off, of course, and Mike and I took the opportunity to officially sign the papers for our new place and start moving on over! We ended up working late and since my outfit wasn’t anything to write home about anyway (hellloooo, bare legs in January) I just had Mike snap a phone picture of me and moved on. Until I get the flash and stuff set up at the new place there are going to be a lot of pictures like this, but let’s pretend it’s a learning and growing experience, shall we?
