This is not technically my outfit today (I was wearing my T by Alexander Wang dress), but as soon as I got home from shopping with Sydney, I tried this skirt and didn’t take it off. I intended it for our next hunt.gather.style shop, but I think I’ll keep it for myself! It’s a bit long on me, but I probably won’t get it hemmed, and honestly, I don’t think it’s that bad. And yes, I know it would look better with heels, but realistically, I’m not wearing heels much lately. At all, really.
And my hair is a DISASTER. My grays are showing, and it’s grown out too much to be a “hair style” – now it’s just a mess. I’m going for a cut on Tuesday, and I’m definitely going to keep it short – actually, I’d really like to go for SUPER-short, a pixie cut would be ideal. But I’m not sure my hair will “do” pixie very well; it’s too straight, although I think I have the right face-shape for a pixie. I’d take Gennifer Goodwin’s style, or Michelle Williams’, but if I can’t do a pixie, I’ll take the Rebecca Minkoff model’s style (the longer bangs):
Anyway, although I’ve never had a pixie cut, I have had SHORT hair before, REALLY short, and I loved it, but I don’t want it that short now, and I definitely don’t want it to stick up LOL – or have to use a bottle of gel and can of hairspray:
These are actual photographs I found of me with short hair in various stages of my life:
top left – around 2002 or so? I actually had a perm at this time.
bottom left – I was in 7th grade. don’t judge
top right – this was 1995 or 1996 I think? Yes, I was blond. and I LOVED it. My hair was SO short, but I really liked it. I don’t want it to look like this again, which is what I’m afraid of if I do go for the pixie cut.
bottom right – 1986. can’t you tell??
What do you think? Should I go for the pixie cut? Or the longer bangs? I do generally like the style I have now, except it needs to be much shorter in the back. The progression of my current cut was towards the Rebecca Minkoff model’s style, but honestly, that’s a lot of styling for me (I don’t like to style my hair), and I think the pixie would be easier.
Have a great weekend!!!
