Winter Whites

posted on: 1/06/2014

01.06.14-5 
Well, I chopped my hair off this weekend. It was time to be honest. It was practically begging to be cut since all I did anymore was throw it into a bun for days at a time. Plus to my surprise when I sat down in the chair, my stylist said it was long enough to donate. I've never cut my long hair short enough to donate, so I feel pretty proud of my short locks. 
01.06.14-3 01.06.14-1 01.06.14-8 01.06.14-7 01.06.14-2 01.06.14-6 01.06.14-4

What is it about a new year that just makes you want everything to be new and fresh? This year feels like a good one already, no? I have giddiness when I think about this year for some reason, I'm thinking this is a good sign. 
This morning I pulled my typically spring white jeans out because you know…13 degrees. Makes sense. This is one of the coldest winters here in Texas that I can remember. I don't know how you guys up north are dealing. Isn't it like -24 in some areas? I. can't. Hugs and blankets to you.

  45. Your hair is adorable! My hair is only slightly longer than that, and I still try to figure out fun ways to style it. I suck with updos, so if you have cute ones, I will most likely steal them.

    It's cold as balls here on the east coast. Tomorrow's HIGH is going to be 19. Not excited about that. And, to be honest, the only reason I don't do winter whites is because of my propensity to spill stuff on myself. It's always chic and beautiful until I cover myself in barbecue sauce.

  52. 34 below with wind chill here in the Upper Peninsula of MI today. That's cold even for us! Great outfit! I'm always afraid to wear white pants in the winter because they inevitably end up covered in slop and road salt!

  64. your hair looks so great! i love it.

  65. Love the new 'do! However, doesn't your hair have to be untreated to be able to donate? I think it's going to be around -40 C tonight. I'm not stepping outside! And yes, totally agree about new year new things. Excited for 2014 as well.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love your hair! I donated my hair last year and plan to do it again in February!

    ReplyDelete
  67. You can donate treated hair, but it will be sold to offset the cost of making wigs instead of being used in a wig.

  76. Awesome! Your haircut looks great and it's so nice to hear you donated it! I'm about to donate mine and I can't wait for it to grow that last inch because I'm really itching to cut it! I've donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths in the past and I really liked it because they only require 8 inches and give their wigs away for free. Cheers!

  105. Hey Kendi!


    As a cancer survivor, I can personally tell you that someone will be truly thankful for your hair - however much or little you were able to donate. When I went through chemotherapy, my wig was the only thing that helped me feel "normal". And your blog has helped me find my style and inspiration again post-treatment.


    Thanks for everything you do!!!

  112. We had -39 up here. It's been a very weird winter, that's for sure. Firstly, you look stunning. I think this is one of my favourite outfits on you to date, and your hair is so fresh, it's gorgeous. I'm tempted to cut my hair off..

  113. it was miserable up here. I had a guy in my office walk to get a Coke at a gas station a block or two away - by the time he came back it was essentially a slushie. craaazzy.
