hair icicles.

Posted on: 1.12.2011

Coat: Logan Solid Peacoat Skirt: Down East Top: Macy's (actually a dress) Tights: F21 Hat: F21 Boots: Steve Madden

The other day I was running a little late for work. I really needed a shower so even though I knew I would be cutting it close, I took one anyway. Since it has been snowing the past several days and I don't have covered parking for my car (bummer) my car was covered in ice from the past two weeks that we have been out of town. I didn't grow up in the snow so using the ice pick thing to clean my car 1. takes me forever. 2. makes me really cold. 3. I simply just hate hate hate doing it... so since we only live a couple blocks from campus I decided to walk (I usually do walk since it is so close, it is only when I am running late that I want to drive.) After living in Utah the past several years one would think I would have this winter thing down. But as I am hustling to get to work, I noticed something funny when I went to move some hair out of my face... um my hair felt hard? That is strange. After examining it a little longer, I realized that my hair had divided themselves into little strands, very much like icicles might I add, and had frozen. frozen. I should have known better... but I have come to the conclusion that if I haven't learned anything the past almost four years of living in this state, I never will.

I guess I am just a true San Diego girl through and through!

P.S. You guys are hilarious. I loved all the comments about Mexican Train. I had to add that we all get pretty into it as well! There have been some pretty heated games of Mexican Train haha :)



80 little notes:

  1. I love this look! The tights, the coat everything!! So cute!!

  2. You are gorgeous. Seriously.

    P.S. If it makes you feel better I don't handle this winter stuff very well either haha. I know St George has WAY worse winters compared to San Diego..but up here..I may freeze to DEATH :)

  8. p.s. I LOVE San Diego! I was born there...but I grew up mostly in Big Bear Lake, so I'm used to snow, but living in Michigan is much, MUCH colder! I miss being able to drive to the beach though...every.day.of.my.life!

  9. You looks so pretty! The yellow jacket is perfect.

    I get icicle hair all the time. Even though I don't shower before. It's horrible - I'm afraid to touch it in case it "breaks". Haha

  10. Oh my gosh, you are simply adorable! yeah the first time I'd discovered frozen hair was my freshman year...after indoor swimming...yikes

    ReplyDelete

  12. you have such a stinkin' cute outfit on.... love it!

    I can relate to you as well, I am from Georgia but have been living in Michigan for 4 years now. I hate scraping off my car (thank goodness for remote start!) and I have had my hair freeze too!


    ah, the joys of winter...

  13. Cute outfit!!! When I lived in Canada, I used to walk to school with wet hair, not smart, I know, and it would freeze. It's the craziest thing, isn't it?

  15. aahaha. haircicles. i went out with wet hair a few weeks ago and my friend said, "Brissa, please put your hair up, I don't want your hair to freeze." It almost did.
    Also, I'm in love with your coat and thawed out hair. SO cute.

  19. I grew up on the east coast where is was cold and snowy. Now that I live near San Diego...I don't miss the cold ONE BIT! and I hated getting all the snow off my car in the mornings too, I always made my brothers do it haha

  21. For a girl that is not used to snow...you sure do know how to dress it up for the snow! You looked gorgeous and I am in LOVE with how you paired the purple tights with the mustard yellow peacoat. Too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You are wearing my two favorite colors! Yellow and white- I love how you are wearing them in the winter, up against the snow, it looks so pretty. (Usually people say to wear only dark colors.. but what if you do love white!)

    And your hair is soo pretty, I'm so jealous!

    Thank you for your comment, I say we go back in time, too!

  24. such cute pictures!!! I wish we got snow in Texas but I'd probably be such a wimp about it that it wouldn't matter anyways :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Stop! You make the snow look gorgeous!

    Go outside take a deep breath (through your nose) and see if your nose hairs freeze. Sick huh? That's when you know it's way too cold outside :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. 1- I need that coat.
    2 - I was in the mountains this weekend and we decided to take a dip in the hot tub (because really, why wouldn't you?) and my hair froze! I was so warm I didn't even remember how cold it was outside until I felt my hair!
    3 - Cold is lame. But your outfit is the opposite. Way to go for trekking through the frigid weather!

    ReplyDelete

  54. ummm hello! you look gorgeous! I love that you exprienced hair icicles--a part of my current every day life! With curly hair, if I want it to look good, I have to do my hair in the am--which means icicles from November to March.

    So happy you found my blog--I'm now your newest follower :) and wouldn't it be great if the "art of messy" applied OUTSIDE of bookshelves??

    xoxo {av}

  55. Those tights are pretty awesome. And icicles in your hair?? I would say something like "thank goodness I live in SC" but I've been snowed in for the past three days...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  57. Scrapping your car in the morning is THE worst and is so time consuming! Its like I have to get up an hour early just to do it hehe. Love the tights!!

  67. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways

    thanks...sweet baby!
