. . . for Lauren and Lauren: I need suggestions

May 28, 2014

I need suggestions

dress: target  

I have yet to switch out my winter and summer clothes.  I seriously hate the task of switching out my clothes and instead have been crawling into the closet under my stairs pulling out clothes from a bin.  I think it's time to get it done, seeing as I've worn the same pair of shorts three days in a row this week.

I am in desperate need of a haircut and color.  I want to do something difference but am nervous.  I think I want my hair like this, but maybe a little longer.  Chris is not a fan of shorter hair, but really he may not even notice.  I wish my hair could be a bright blonde but it never seems to stay so maybe it's time I give up and embrace brown hair?


I'm not sure why I've never worn a chambray shirt in place of  a coat, but I think it's the perfect summer night solution.  And by summer night I really mean before 7:00 because let's be honest, I'm home by then just about every night.  

And since we're usually home by 7 we need a new show to watch together.  Our favorite series have been Friday Night Lights, Dexter, and Prison Break.  Any suggestions?

Cute dress. I'm too cheap to pain for hair color so mine has always been brown!

I don't have any tv suggestions, I feel like I am out in a wasteland now that amazon prime got rid of all of my HGTV shows on prime. lol. :) but I wanted to say hi and that Addie is getting cuter by the day and girl are you still training for the full marathon?

I did a half last September and have set the goal to complete at least a half within the first year of all of my kids lives but have already decided (barring some disaster) that I am going for a full marathon next September (of 2015)

okay this was a ridiculously long comment!

I want to cut my hair like Little Miss Momma too. I love the beachy waves on her. I am so ready for a change, but I just haven't gotten up the courage myself to chop my hair. You would look so great with that cut, I'm sure of it.

Have you tried Once Upon a Time?
I really love Gossip Girl, but Scott finds it to be a bit much…
LOVED Friday Night Lights.
We really enjoyed Weeds too. That show will keep you busy for awhile. Lots of seasons.

The cut would be cute and easy to maintain. I wouldn't go darker in summer since it will fade in the sun. We are loving the new season of Master Chef!! My girlfriend always has game nights in the summer months since TV is a bit lacking in new shows.

I don't color my hair, but I've been debating whether or not to start.
I think a longer bob would look very cute on you.

I love the dress and shirt combo!

I haven't watched any of those shows so I'm not sure if this will be what you're looking for but we love Castle, White Collar, and Scandal. We've recently started watching The Good Wife. We used to watch Burn Notice. The series is over but there were seven seasons and it's by far my favorite TV show.

Suzanne Bruce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I forgot " orphan black" on bbc... LOVE this show!!!!

The Lady Okie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Forget coloring your hair. Go natural! Also, we like Call The Midwife. Even jordan likes it!

Lindsay Ropella said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am on season 3 of Dexter right now! SUCH a good show! Just finished watching Breaking Bad and am also watching Scandal. All AWESOME shows!!

Anna D Kart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Lovely striped dress
I haven't watched a show in ages lol Where do you find time? No really

Currently Loving Link Up

Meghan Hayes said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hate the switch out too! It takes so long, makes the nearest room a complete and total mess. Then you have to decide if you're really going to try and wear that dress again this year or if it's just going to be donated. Once it's done you feel great though, so focus on that!

I'm currently obsessed with Once Upon a Time. You can catch up on Netflix and Hulu. It's soooooo good.

I am obsessed with Revenge!! One of my college students recommended it and I started watching and got hooked. I ended up watching 3 seasons in 2 weeks. If you haven't seen it, I definitely recommend it. Can't wait for season 4. Scandal is also awesome as well. I watched them on Netflix and Hulu Plus.

I've been thinking of getting a very similar cut! My hair has been the same length for quite a while now and I'm itching for a change!

two birds said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

First of all, that haircut would be so cute on you! I say, Go for it! I just finished all three seasons of Scandal on Netflix. It was very addictive and a lot ridiculous. I really enjoyed it. Also, House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, also on Netflix.

What a cute dress! I'm really hoping that you didn't find that on clearance...that way it will still be at Target when I go tomorrow ;)

Ginny MyNewFavoriteOutfit said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have this dress, I need to wear it again now that it's warmed up. :) Brian and I just watched Homeland, it's amazing!

Agnes Mayer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I would suggest a bob just above your shoulders, get some blond highlights and go lighter for the summer and for tv show watching Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones are all amazing. Good luck. Can't wait to see what you decide on.

I recently work a chambray shirt in place of a denim jacket and I also though "why didn't I do this sooner?" haha

Kayla MKOY said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I say go dark girl!!! I'm staying blonde for the summer but going more natural in the fall! I'm excited!! :) loving that striped dress!

J and A said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That cut would look great on you!! And I say go dark! Just go for it!! :) We love Chicago Fire - and we just started watching Orange is the new Black on netflicks.

Kira Bublitz said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

mistresses is about to start and it was my favorite show last summer. you might like it, not sure about your husband! haha

Monique Grattan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Breaking Bad. They. Best. Show.

Christi Elizabeth said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Adorable dress. This is totally something I would wear. I love it!

Awesome Amy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I think cutting off like... inches woudl be plenty - and it's not really that short!

bright blonde - wash with a purple shampoo - worth the investment - use it every other time, let it sit for a bit. I used to be platinum - LOVED it. But, my hair is naturally just a tich above black.. so gave up on the cost to color every 5 weeks (insert super sad face here).

Amber Hillis said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Katie,

Sometimes its okay to leave the clothes in the bin :P
Definitely go for a shorter cut. Its summer and well YOLO. ( Did I seriously use that in a sentence?)
Orange Is The New Black if you have Netflix my oh my amazing show.

Brianne Bracco said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love this dress color on you! And We've been binging on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon lately...And of course loooove Game of Thrones....but we are debating starting House of Cards and Penny Dreadful also.

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the dress. No suggestions.

Savanna said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love that hair cut and I think it would look perfect on you. The other day when I saw it, I had a moment when I wished my hair was still long so I could get that cut.

Abby said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hey friend, we are having the same hair dilemma! I'm always conflicted about color and I recently ran across a similar haircut, but actually a little shorter and it made me want to do it! Also, I recommend, Scandal, Breaking Bad and Burn Notice (based on your Dexter interest). Love you!
