Change in the Weather.

I think I’ve made my point that printed pants are my thing. Plus plaid is plaid is plaid is joy.ย 

Leggings- Aero (first time going in since five years ago ๐Ÿ™‚
Sweater- Gap
Booties- Aldo

Yes!! My hair didย change; you aren’t hallucinating. Okay, I feel like the back story is needed in order for my hair’s symbolic meaning (*insert air quotes and dramatic sigh*) to be understood fully.

Lets take it back a few years to ninth grade.

It was time for a drastic change. I had wanted a bob ever since I had come across Faye Dunaway in the trailer for Bonnie and Clyde. I told my mom about my idea, and she immediately shot it down, telling me that my hair would not be manageable at that length. Deep down, I knew she was right- I couldn’t handle a straightener, for crying out loud- so I vowed aloud ( no assonance intended) to do so. I chickened out the moment I told the hairdresser what I wanted, so I quietly took a strange lob/mid-length hybrid- thing. And I hated it, but had no guts to say anything, so I patiently grew it out. Then I became a seniorย and I saw Lily Collins chop her hair to a lob and then a bob. And then I saw a few cuts around school and people saying that they were doing it either because
a) senior year / cuz yolo
b) odds are we would never see them again
c) purely coincidental that they got the cut in senior year
d) etc etc etc….
….So I finally figured -what the heck?- and got a bob. And may or may not have skipped around like a child.

Lesson learned?
Just. Get. The. Blessed. Haircut. Already. ย Just kidding, its YOLO. But seriously.ย 

Don’t mind me, I’ll just giggle in my turtleneck.ย

Glorious Hair for Lazy People

I have been considering chopping my hair for the longest time now, and the more times I see the trailer for Love, Rosieย the more I want to cut my hair into a short, blunt bob like Lily *cough- glorious-cough* Collins. It reminds me of Marion Cotillard and French sixties mod style. Plus ( the most important reason in my opinion), I am ย a lazy person.

These are the pictures burning a hole in my phone and computer screen day after day…
let us all witness the glory that is Lily Collins, Marion Cotillard, Clemence Poesy, and ย Karla Deras,the ultimate messy/cute bob queens.

I am obsessed with Karla’s natural texture.ย 

Not sure who this girl is, but her hair is so blunt and perfect in every way.

All pictures from Vogue, Elle,Tumblr, and the depths of my computer files.

Bottom line- if I can let my hair air dry and not have to worry about it tangling too terribly, then it is the haircut for me. Now, serious question: do round faces look okay with short hair?
