Sweater: J.Crew {similar} | Pants c/o Lisette L | Pumps: Target {similar}

I swear you’d think it’s almost Valentine’s Day with the amount of hearts on clothing I own and have worn this month.  J.Crew sweaters are my fave.  Not only are they super comfy cozy, but they have the best designs and prints.  Even if this kinda reminds me of my Lisa Frank obsession days, I still dig it.  And there’s no better color to pair a cobalt blue than with some black/white pull up pants, don’t ya think?  This is the closest I’ll ever get to wearing pajamas at work.

Oh yea, if you were thinking something about me looked a little different.  I straightened my hair.  It brought me back to the last time I straightened my hair, which was like 2009 and it was fun.  So I have a feeling you’ll be seeing more of it.

How often do you straighten or curl your hair?

    Hi Sandy,

    It had been long time since I drop by your blog.I had being vacationing hard in Taipei.

    I love your sweater.I love the colors,grey with cobalt blue is a genius colors matching.And I think straight hair look superb great on you too.Curly look nice too but I always think curly make me look terribly mature.

    I tend to straighten my hair on the days I have somewhere to be and I’m not working. Otherwise… I deal with the waves.

    Straight hair looks great on you! I have naturally straight (well, straight-ish; it’s mostly just limp and gross) hair and I curl it pretty much every day. I just feel more like myself with curly hair. :)

    Oh my goodness, you look 20 years old with your hair straighten (and that was a total compliment). I love J.Crew sweaters, too. The quality and the comfort are absolutely amazing!

    I LOVE this look. Fun & youthful but it a subdued adult way.

    My hair is usually wavy, but I’ve been straightening it the last week or so. I missed it!

    Love the heart sweater and you’re so right about it reminding me of Lisa Frank <3 I love the polka dot pants you paired it with too, super fun!

    I straighten my hair about 2-3 times/week. I never curl is since it won't hold the curl ;)

    I been doing blow drying my hair and that’s the most I’ll do in the morning. Simply bc hubby told me he like my hair down and straight haha

    sandy i love that sweater! such a darling outfit and you look so svelte. i wish i had $ for new clothing…every once in awhile i will splurge but usually it’s because i need something for an event.
    on the hair question:
    since i don’t work out of the home full time, i put rollers in my hair about 1x a week. the rest of the time i just leave it down and wavy from air drying. or, in a pony.
