New hair do

Happy Monday! Today was jam packed between my 2 hour home visit, documentation (more tomorrow -the life of a social worker!!), and many phone calls. Woo! How was your Monday? Manic?

Oh this is good - this afternoon I noticed a case note from last Friday where instead of "hire" I typed "higher". Splendid. ..I felt much better, however after reading the directions for our upcoming performance reviews that included "being elf-motivated and sel-directed". Even the higher ups making embarrassing mistakes! It's tempting to type up a Buddy the Elf quote about Christmas cheer on my review! I think I'll probably pass. Or maybe write it on a post-it-note.. and include a big smiley face. Smiley faces make everything ok, right?

Onto the challenge! Today we were to try a new hair-do! This is a good challenge for me, encouraging me to be creative! Last week I braided my hair on the left side, yesterday I did the right, and today (so as not to cheat) did both, finished off with a bun! Nothing crazy, but a good way for me to change up my go to bun!

The details - Jacket: Loft outlet, Top: Limited, Jeans: Gap, Shoes: Nurture, Necklace, Earrings, Bangles: Limited

As promised today I was a copycat, making up from the missed post yesterday. 2 challenges in one day. I need a nap! ;) 

I also learned an important thing about copycatting:
Jessica from What I Wore
Don't try to mimic the same pose as your inspiration, or the differences will be very distracting. Lesson learned! (This feels like a bad version of a puzzle from Highlights magazine! ..How many differences can you spot? No. Please. Don't tell me.)

I really liked how this turned out! Ive always been a fan of the side braid with a bun. And you're copycat outfit is perfect! Nice job replicating it.
