New Haircut

Posted on: July 25, 2013

When I first got home from the salon , I took photos but a storm was brewing  andthe wind was blowing… 


So I took a nap, (we had thunderstorms that kept me up til the wee hours of the morning) and tried again for photos!


So this one came out much better, than my first attempt… I love the color as my mother was a natural red head,  My father lovingly referred to her as “Rusty”. 


Not happy with the squinty photo and my hair isn’t perfect, but remember I did take a nap and it was still midly windy…  I love the new hair style and hope it help me to feel more inspired style wise for the remainder of Summer. 


This is my new Calvin Klein striped dress which I just love the ease of… My hair appointment was scheduled for 10:45 this morning, but at 9:15 the salon called asking if I could make it in by 10 as his appt had cancelled… I jumped at that as it meant more time with him , since my stylist had fit me in…This easy dress and no brainer of white accents made it possible for me to get there on time!  Gotta Love Dresses!


For the second shoot I added my new jacket as the temp was actually cool enough!   Love the stripe on stripe!


And of course a side view… which I am tickled pink over… I tshirt dress and no spanx!  I really have lost a lot of weight!!!!


Now I am getting really carried away as I had to show one with my sunglasses…

Dear Readers, any day at the salon is a good day!  When you have the same stylist for 8 years it’s even better!  Now onto a more serious note… On the way home from the salon, I was totally creeped out by a work truck that seemed to be following us.  It had first driven past me when I was standing on the curb outside Panera Bread waiting for my son, then my son mentioned it when we were closer to home… He moved over two lanes and so did the van.   He came up beside us, glanced at me, then cut back behind us again.  We were about to turn on our road, but I told my son we couldn’t let him follow us home… We turned into the Kroger(grocery store) and so did he, we drove around the lot not stopping and he went out of the lot , he didn’t notice that we were behind him as he exited the lot as a bigger truck was between us… We cut across and drove through the Home Depot lot while he circled back around to the Kroger lot.  We exited out a main road on the other side of Home Depot and made our way home without seeing him again… My 17 year old was really creeped out… All I could think of was poor Trayvon Martin at night time dealing with this on his own and without the safety of a car… 


I am grateful that my son was so observant and very quick witted 

I am grateful for the wonderful conversations that always happen with my hairstylist.

I am grateful that  my pants arrived and all fit

I am grateful that my son took two sets of  photos so patiently

Love the outfit!

Very cute hairdo, Tracey.

Love the outfit and the hair cut! That’s also the colour I choose my hair to be *g*. What a creepy story about the truck. Glad you dodged him. Did you get the plate number?

No didn’t get the plate number but it was a company truck with a name on it… I failed to mention that there were actually two guys in the truck.. My guess is that one of them was egging the other one on to ask me out or something harmless…This hair color is a fun one!

Your hair looks amazing! The cut and color really suit you well. Loving the double stripes too. Super cute 🙂

Thank you, I haven’t done hightlights in awhile and go figure my husband noticed that right away.

This is a great look for you – hair and dress – you look fantastic and younger as well 🙂
The dress is a perfect fit and so flattering, and the hair cut is great too (very similar to how my own hair is cut, although mine looks quite different due to the curl)

Thank you! I love your curls.
