I’ve always been a big fan of nautical stripes, but the love affair has taken on a whole new form lately. While stripes are something I always assocate with the summer, something about the crispness of them also helps to liven up fall looks, a tactic that I’ve been employing a lot lately since I’m needing my heavy winter coats and knits now more than ever. In fact, I may or may not have another outfit planned for this week that’s heavy on the stripes (and by that I mean….I definitely do).
I’ve been in denial about needing a hair cut for awhile now but as evidenced by these pictures, it’s getting reeeeaaaaaal ratty. I’ve been seriously considering chopping it all off into an Olivia Palermo lob for a long time now but am not sure I have the guts to take the plunge! It’s funny that I’m such a wimp now because I used to have such a devil-may-care attitude with my hair when I was younger – I don’t know where that recklessness has gone. I mean, I used to have an asymmetrical cut that was SHAVED on one side. Literally. Shaved! And now I’m breaking out in a sweat about parting with a measly 8 inches or so. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it took me a good five years to grow my hair out to this length, or maybe it’s the fact that I was kind of traumatized by the “Bangs Debacle of Winter 2011” as I like to refer to it, but I am not kidding, I literally have anxiety over what to do with this mane of mine.
So far on Instagram I’ve gotten more votes to chop than to keep my length, but I’d love your feedback: to cut or not to cut?
