Mama's got a brand new haircut

Last Saturday I finally went in to get the hair cut that I've been planning for too darn long now, and I ended up getting 4" cut off! I was so happy to see that old hair gone. . . and notice the different shade? I love the black! I really like the new length too , it makes me want to put curlers in more often. I'm so excited to play around with all sorts of different hairstyles soon. Having a major change in the middle of winter seems to have reawakened my motivation to do more outfit posts as well. I would have posted about the haircut sooner, but I've been busy taking care of my poor little boy who has been sick since Wednesday. :(

Regarding the outfit, I've been loving the scarf with the belt look. This green scarf has been getting so much wear lately. The first picture is what I wanted to wear out and about, but the last one is what I ended up wearing. (no bare legs for this gal till March at the earliest) 

Bright colors always make me happy during the cold months. Do you notice that too? I have to have them around me, and one of these days I'll do a post about the brights around my apartment. And ohhhhh, that poetry book below ( I wanted to show and tell) is Erica Jong's first edition of Fruits and Vegetables. Don't you just love coming across amazing old poetry/prose books while thrifting? It's the next best thing to finding an incredible dress. I looked it up online too, and saw that it was listed for a pretty penny on Ebay. I won't be listing it anytime soon though, it's too chock full of amusing food-inspired erotica . . . just perfect to read to my sweetie at dinner on Valentine's day. ;)

I'm getting excited for February 14th, can you tell?
