1.  HURR.  I DID IT.  It’s the shortest my hair has been since 2005, and I always swore I would never cut my hair again, but you know.  That “new hair itch” inevitably strikes.  Surprisingly, my long-hair-regret was pretty minimal and I am REALLY enjoying how much faster it is to get ready in the morning.  Also, I am enjoying this sweet, sweet period before my freshly-dyed hair turns orange.

2.  NECKLACE.  My new necklace was made by my cute friend Alisa.  I love how it’s a softer look than my normal accessories, but still strong and minimal.  Check out her site The Year Of for more of her knitted rope necklaces.  I’m already planning on getting another one!

3.  EUROPE.  I can’t believe we’re leaving for Europe next week already!  I’ve hardly had time to sit down and do as much research as I’ve wanted to, though I’m ALMOST done with my crazy 4-page spreadsheet on meals.  Anyone have any must-see/eat/shop places in Stockholm, Copenhagen, or Paris?  The last time we were in Paris was March 2011, but I’m sure there are new places to check out!  I haven’t done any shopping research yet, but the land of Acne, Wood Wood, Hope, Henrik Vibskov, and Won Hundred?  Oh, this will be wonderful.

FAVORITES: The Pit & The Pendulum Necklace

The Pit & The Pendulum Necklace, $45

It’s no secret that Evidence Jewelry’s “The Pit & The Pendulum” necklace is my favorite necklace as of the past couple months, as you’ve seen in every outfit post lately.  I apologize for being annoying and always linking to something that is sold out, but GOOD NEWS, Katie of Evidence Jewelry finally sent us a couple more for the store!  Since each is handmade, we only have a couple to sell, so if it’s something you were eyeing, I’d snatch it up sooner rather than later!

I wear it almost every single day and it’s gotten to the point where it becomes difficult to NOT put it on.  The length, the weight, the shape – ALL PERFECT.  It’s like it’s too easy to put it on.  Having to decide on something else to accessorize your outfit that day would require just too much brain work.

FAVORITES: Gilligan & O’Malley Thongs

Gilligan & O’Malley modal thongs
1 for $5 // 3 for $11

I just discovered my new favorite underwear – the Gilligan & O’Malley modal thongs from Target. Yes, Target! Super soft, super stretchy, super thin, super CHEAP. They really do feel like wearing nothing at all (nothing at all! NOTHING AT ALL!).  At only $5 each (and even cheaper if you buy 3 at a time), you could rebuild your entire underwear collection in one go.

Even though I love wearing black, even I feel a bit macabre when wearing black on black. A holey [black] sweater over a [black] bralette + black [on black] striped jeans helps to break up what would otherwise be giant black block. In essence, black under black over black on black. Black block. It’s beautiful.

If a piece of clothing comes in multiple colors, 75% of the time, I want the black one. It always just looks the best to me! The problem with preferring black is that you end up with a bunch of black tops to pair with your pants – which are, of course, comprised almost entirely of black jeans. WELL. The phrase “I’m trying to wear more color” gives my heart a flutter of anxiety (do I HAVE to?), so I guess “funereal” will be theme for the foreseable future.
