Everywhere green

I like this outfit. It is definitely me. I love wide leg jeans, boots, a great black t, and a olive green jacket. Perfect. It is very casual and laid back and probably not even blog worthy but I think that is what makes it great. I am definitely drawn to a more casual and simple style even though I have been trying more lately to develop my style further. But an outfit like this is just a staple in any closet well at least it is in mine. It is also the perfect outfit for the weekend. 
One thing that I do love about Seattle and the west side is that it is SO green, everywhere. Just the other day I was amazing at how moss literally grows everywhere. On the sidewalks, lamp poles, brick buildings, everywhere. How does this happen? I shouldn't question it because I really do love it. Coming from eastern Washington the color tones are mostly beige and gray. So I love the green.
Also, I got my hair trimmed and layered a little bit. It was much needed and it feels so much better and definitely easier to style and handle. Yay for a good haircut. I actually when to a beauty shop on my campus which was super convenient and the lady did an amazing job. I will definitely go to her again in the future. Sometime I feel like I want bands then I immediately talk myself out of it because what would I do with bands? My hair is naturally curl and by the end of the day my hair is usually up in a messy bun there is no way I could handle having bands. But I must say they look great on some ladies and I envy you. 

By the way happy Monday.
love, Carlee
