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.)

ANYWAY.

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.

  6. I think my favourite haircut on myself is a short bob with a fringe, but it's long right now. I get the urge to cut it again sometimes, but it took me so long to get to this point that I feel like I need to keep it for a while.

    1. i think it's important to follow our gut when it comes to hair. if you think you want to cut, maybe just do a few inches to test the waters :)

  10. You are such a hottie! I agree- I'm more of a long haired person and it's NOT JUST HAIR! It takes forever to grow back! Every time my hair gets super long I decide to cut it and then not too long later wish it would instantly grow. Not this time- I'm resisting all urges :)

  12. That's what scares me about haircuts! It took me two years to grow out a bad haircut. Way too long. Not 'just hair' when it's taking forever haha

    That is a super cute outfit! Loving the sweater and sunglasses :3

  13. Awesome pictures and that flower headband suits you perfectly ;). I'm more of a short-hair person, to tell you the truth, not because I feel sexy in short hair, haha, but because it's so low maintenance and I suck at doing my hair :/; it's always frizzy (especially in dry California!) and just a mess. I am now trying to convince myself not to cut it for a few more months to make the most of the ombre I just had done.
