Going a little off topic today - I have been thinking a lot lately about cutting my hair. I've always gravitated towards that classic just above the shoulders Grace Kelly cut. It's timeless, flattering on most, and has the potential to look polished or messy. At this rate, it's been a years long debate. I had my hair short back in college and loved it but as these things go, having short hair created a desire to have really long hair and now that my hair has finally reached the desired length of 2012 I feel almost guilty at the thought of chopping it all off. And now with the cut being so popular, well I find that a bit off putting. I mean, who doesn't have some kind of long bob right now Hollywood?It's the trendy cut right now. I suppose that's my answer.

This is an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago but didn't get around to sharing until now. I had been wanting a pale blush colored sweater and came this close to buying one when I remembered I had this one tucked away in a drawer at my mom's house. One of the perks of going home is that my mom wears the same size shoe as me. I love the buckles and cutout details on the sides on these boots, they have that tough, cool feel. If it were warmer I'd pair them with a feminine floral dress, I think that would be a fun balance. Since it's not, I paired them with distressed black pants and a warm top for a relaxed weekend look.

  1. I have been thinking about switching up my hair too - I think it's the time of year too though! Can you pin it up to shorten it how it would be and see if you still like it - did that make sense how it came out lol! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. I didn't want to cut my hair either. It had finally gotten to my mid-back (I had been growing it out for 2.5 years!)... but I needed a change and I cut it right above my shoulders I absolutely adore it! If you miss it, it will grow back. :)

  6. I had the same hair dilemma a couple of weeks ago and decided to just go for it. I chopped it up to my shoulders and I'm so glad I did. Maybe it's this long winter but I just needed a change! I think you would look great with a long bob! Loving those booties! And I agree. They would pair perfectly with an easy breezy dress once the weather ever warms up!

  9. I'm actually really wanting a long bob right now too, but I know it's only because I'm currently growing my hair for my wedding. You always want what you don't have, amiright? You could always get some hair extensions if you end up cutting it and start wishing for long hair again.

  11. Oh man, the great hair debate. I recently did a major chop on my hair. I am glad I did it because it was getting to be a pain, but I miss my top knot… I think maybe long hair is too high maintenance for me... Love this look!

  14. I mean, I think bobs/lobs are cute but not in a trendy sense. The minute you chop it, long will be in again! So annoying. Love those boots, btw.
