Rock Out with Your Locks Out
I really love these pictures because I realize that my hair has finally grown out to a length that I'm happy with.
See, I'm a "long haired person." I know that I like the look of long hair on myself, and I know that it looks good on me. By contrast, some people are "short haired people", and feel really confident and sexy with a pixie cut, a bob, or even a shaved head. I have a friend who loves to experiment. It's her signature. She's always letting her hairdresser shape it into wild asymmetrical styles, mullets, and just really really short cuts. And it really works for her!
But I know it's not me.
About five years ago I was bored of my hair, and wanted to try out something new. So I let a friend cut it to shoulder-length, with some "interesting" layering choices. I immediately hated it, and I've spent the entire time since trying to grow it back. Don't ever believe it when someone says "It's just hair." NOPE.
(Unless you are like my friend Jess, and it pleases you to go short/ experiment.)
It was an unseasonably warm day when we took these photos, so luckily I didn't have to freeze to get some good shots! I really like the way this outfit came together... the pink batwing sweater is a welcome addition to my ever-growing collection of bulky winter sweaters... it's twisty-pattern is so unique! It went surprisingly well with this light green blouse... a staple piece, which I've been totally needing more of in my wardrobe.
But in the end, I think the sunglasses unintentionally stole the show. I look forward to wearing these a LOT this spring, and hopefully getting them in a few more colors :)
I feel compelled to mention that while I loved this necklace, the chain broke very shortly after we took these pictures :( I'm going to try and find a different chain for it, since it is such a cool pendant.
