Calligraphy Cut (part 2)

img_5750

I had one more set of photos to showcase my Calligraphy (hair)Cut, and I just had to share them since I couldn’t choose between the photos! As other fashion bloggers will attest to, you have to be completely oblivious to the people around you when you’re shooting photos in wide open locations. “Oh don’t mind me over here…” Totally #worthit to capture the moment (and the haircut).

Want to know more about the Calligraphy Cut? Contact Salon Coccole for an appointment! You can also find them on Facebook and Instagram. You can also read more about Calligraphy Cut via their website. My hair was cut and styled by Donna and my girl Shana does my “ombre/balayage with a twist” color; both can be found at  Salon Coccole.

Sorry to say I am late to the #monthlymani party this month because I’ve been so sick 😦 But, the show must go on! And nails must be painted! Here’s my #monthlymani in a #mayflowers pattern.  I used the Caption Art Screens to stamp on a flower print. I’m still finessing the art of nail stamping, but it’s super fun and I definitely recommend trying it if you do your own nails! Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her #mayflowers #monthlymani!

Please note, I did not receive financial compensation to post a review of my haircut. I did receive my cut complementary, but per Fashion Huntress standards, the views and opinions are my own! Oh- the outfit! Top: Ann Taylor, Pants: NYDJ, Necklace: Bauble Bar, Shoes: Sam Edelman

I’m finally getting around to mentioning why I was absent from my blog two weeks ago! My husband and I were in Sedona, thanks to our family friend very generously offering us a week stay there (<3 <3). I didn’t take any fashion photos because let’s be real: it’s hot and you’re outdoors hiking 24/7. I was humbled, amazed, and inspired by this magical place, and can’t wait to go back. Below are some photos from the trip. Until next time, readers! Have a fabulous rest of your week!

Is anyone else watching Grace and Frankie? Shout-out to Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for being the most fabulous ladies in television right now, if you ask me! I love love love Jane Fonda’s classic style (and attitude) in the show. In an ode to Ms. Fonda, I’m popping my collared shirt collar and sporting a scarf today…and a ‘don’t take no for an answer’ attitude!

Y’all (southern style), I am overdue for a post! I apologize for the delay; I was on vacation with my hubs and am now back to work and life! Thanks to lots of sunshine and warmth, I managed to snag some great photos and will post them over the course of the next few posts. I miss the sun, food, people, culture, music, and everything else already! But, everything’s not lost, I’ve got the memories and photos to share…

Fashion Huntress tip: Winter, spring, who knows anymore?! But I’m enjoying looking through the ‘end of season’ sales that are happening right now! The sales at J Crew and Banana Republic are both great right now, if you’re looking for any winter items. For boots, the sale prices at 6pm.com are reaching seasonal lows!

Spring is in the air, readers…I’m eagerly awaiting some greenery and flowers in our lives here in Chicago! In the meantime, I continue to embrace layers and patience. (I’m tapping my bow high heel (sort-of) patiently).

It’s #monthlymani time again! This month we picked a Spring Fling theme. …readers, I just really wanted to paint my nails to look like a magical spring unicorn. I mixed a few colors and the result was, indeed, a glittery shimmery unicorn (in my opinion). #nailedit. Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her Spring Fling #monthlymani! And join us next month for the #Aprilshowers theme!
