A pocket full of autumn sunshine

These photos were taken on what was probably our last weekend of glorious autumn sunshine for the year (the wintry winds and sleet have since descended).

As I mentioned last week in my post about getting haircuts at cosmetology schools, I spent that morning getting my hair trimmed and shaped. My husband, Sam, and I then spent the rest of the day in downtown Portland, catching a movie (Interstellar), a lunch of good pizza and beer (Pizzicato), and a little shopping (Macy’s with gift cards and coupons). Oh, and taking outfit pictures in public parks. As you do. 😉

I felt quite comfortable and cheerful in my sunny yellow cardigan and bright purple top. Now that I look at it properly, there are actually quite a few colors (yellow, purple, navy) and patterns (animal print, starburst, colorblock) going on, but yet the overall effect looks pretty cohesive to me. I also tend to layer in tank tops and cardigans when I get my  hair cut, because it’s easy to shed the top layer under the salon cape.

Above is a closer shot of the sharper angle my bob has now. I also really like the center part — makes the bangs more dramatic!

    Love the purple and yellow together, not to mention your new haircut! Sounds like you had a fun day out. Pizza, beer, shopping and a gorgeous fall day are definitely some of my favorite things!
