Mondays, amirite?

Honestly, though, I'm feeling ok today. I'm not sure why I was in such a funk last week, but this week I'm prepared to be happy. Or, at the very least, I'm prepared to pretend that I'm happy, which usually leads to actual good feelings.
This weekend was really relaxing, even if I didn't get around to some of the things that I wanted to do. I've got food in the house, I worked out something interesting and vintage-y to do with my hair (more on that later), and I got to see Guardians of the Galaxy (um, again). Although I didn't make it to the library, which was also on my to do list, it kind of feels like a public service to run up fines on a bunch of books. Support your public library, y'all.
I think I've mentioned before that I don't wear pants very often, and I post photos of myself in pants even less frequently. I actually really like wearing my boyfriend's jeans, though. They're all worn and soft and comfy, and once in a while it just feels good to relax in a pair of Levi's.

The only real problem with wearing a pair of jeans that have already been broken in by a dude is that there tends to be extra dick room that, as a non-dick-having person, I don't really need.

Although it's not my typical style, there's something refreshingly classic and simple about a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. Being me, I still wanted to dress it up a little bit with some red shoes and a floral headscarf.

My hair wasn't being super cooperative on Sunday, so the scarf and pin curls were as much necessity as decoration. I think this might end up being a go-to style for me - it's one of the few overtly vintage styles that I can still work with my hair this short. Of course, pin curls are used to style hair, and when I took them out at the end of the day, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the result was.

Please pardon the end of the day, post lipstick face. But the swoop is pretty sweet, right?
I did a wet roller set with standing pin curls in the front last night, and while I'm not entirely satisfied with the results, I think it has promise as an early 60s style. We'll see how it does with a little more work.
Well, I intend to have a lovely week, and I hope the rest of you have a great one as well.
