Well I learned something new yesterday. If you are wearing a sheer silk shirt and it’s the dead of a dry winter, it will stick to every curve of your body. So there’s that. I also didn’t learn this until after we shot photos. So everyone saw everything yesterday. I was literally NSFW at work. 


After I cut my hair, I wondered if my hats would see the light of day again, but it turns out I’m wearing them just as much as I was with my hippie long locks. I’m also hyper-sensitive to my hair length now, as I want to keep it this length (or shorter) for a while. I swear it’s grown an inch since I cut it. Before I wanted it to grow so fast and it just wouldn’t, but now I wake up and it’s longer. Sneaky sneaky hair.

  1. i had the same fear when i chopped my hair. i love hats and didn't want to give them up but they still look pretty great with short hair!

  2. You may already know this but… you can put a small amount of body lotion on your hands and after lightly rubbing them together, rub your hands on the cami under your shirt, on your skin (if not wearing a cami) or on top of your tights/nylongs (if you are wearing a dress). Presto! the static cling is gone!

  3. I love the way your hat looks with your shorter hair, is so chic! And about fabrics, that I learned the other day, pictures told me that lesson too! But you look just so chic and pretty!

    Cee. ♥

  4. I was the same way when I cut my hair! So the next time I went in, I was like…I want NECK showing in the back. And then my husband was worried I would go all Kate Gosselin on him. =) Now that my hair is that awkward not short and not long length I can't decide if I want to cut again or grow it out. LOL. Btw, love the short cut on you!

  5. I feel the same way about my hair! When I cut it all off, I wanted it to grow back AND fast, just be healthier. But now, I want to keep it short and it's growing too fast to keep up! -champagne problems-

  6. YES. I feel the exact same way about my hair. I chopped it off in November and I've already had to go back for two trims — TWO! I love the combination of blue and black in these photos. So rich.

  7. Love this look! I have a similar hat in black that I might have to break out of the closet. I hate when I take my blog pictures only to realize something was way off – my husband (my photographer) does not notice these things! Anyways – you still look great!


  8. You know, its really rear to find a blue hat…plus, ithas to be good, of course! This one is great! And those shoes…I'm obsessed with them for quite some time 😉


  9. I love that shirt, and the hat is beautiful! I also learned the thing about silk shirts in winter recently, bummer! But it looks great on you! I can't tell that it's sticking at all!
