Fuschia top

I took these pictures during a date night shortly after getting my hair cut and highlighted by my beloved hairdresser. I'm usually the last appointment of the day and as we've gotten to know each other, we often wind up chatting and playing around well beyond my appointment time. This time she taught me how to curl my hair with a straightening iron, tried a new volumizer product on me, and crimped a few pieces of hair for a fun effect. Best of all, she's always patient with me - whether I've tried to trim my own bangs and messed it up, switched to toner treatments between highlighting appointments to reduce my hair maintenance costs, or taken my freshly-coiffed hair to the gym right after an appointment.

This time my post-appointment plans involved dinner, not a workout. After putting on my pants, top and shoes, I felt my outfit needed a little something extra. None of my belts were doing the trick, so I ended up using a long, narrow silk scarf instead. An upcoming post is all about belts, so be sure to look out for that one!!
