Hair Envy

Seriously, how do I get my hair to look like this? Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted long, flowing locks and my hairdos have ranged from medium long to really long. Suddenly, however, I’m seeing versions of the long bob everywhere and for the first time I’m actually tempted by a shorter ‘do. I feel like everyone is chopping their hair these days- bloggers, celebrities, coworkers, friends.

This haircut just looks so breezy and effortless and the lightness would be really nice when the temperatures start to rise. I have a hair appointment tomorrow and it’s long overdue. Despite all this talk, I probably won’t be getting anything out of the norm, but it’s fun to think about it. Hey, who knows? Maybe I will be spontaneous and get it cut!

Tell me: What’s the shortest length your hair has ever been?

I’ve never thought of myself as a hat person. I love the way that hats look on other people, but I don’t feel like I can pull them off myself. Hat person or not, when it’s winter on the East Coast you don’t really have a choice. You need to wear a hat (unless you’re into freezing your ears off).

Earlier in the season I bought a cozy, black-and-white striped beanie from Joe Fresh. It was the first hat that I’ve bought where I thought “Hey, this doesn’t look half-bad on me!” Now I’m thinking maybe I can wear hats, or at least that I look okay in a beanie. I purchased that beanie mainly for warmth purposes, but now I’m starting to see it as an accessory too- a way to finish off the outfit. Over the weeks I’ve saved a few inspirational pictures for styling a beanie and I shared some of my favorites above.

During the long weekend, I knit a beanie out of some burgundy yarn that I had stashed away. This is only the second beanie that I own, but I’m looking forward to wearing it for an outfit post and seeing if I still think I can pull off the beanie style. I also really want a basic black version- something to add a little edge to a casual outfit.

Tell me: Do you wear hats? If so, what’s your favorite style?

The Floral Sweatshirt

floral sweatshirts, fashion sweatshirts, stylish sweatshirts, floral pattern, winter florals

I’m not quite ready to focus on spring fashion. There’s a lot of spring clothing popping up in stores, but it’s hard to get excited about a new season when the sky is still dumping lots of snow almost daily (according to this article, this is one of the top 10 snowiest winters on record). Enter the floral sweatshirt- combining the pretty florals of spring with the cozy warmth you need for winter. Since Sir Groundhog said we’re due for six more weeks of winter, I think this is a great way to bring a little spring fashion into your winter wardrobe. Fun fact- two of these picks above are actually men’s sweatshirts!

Tell me: Which is your favorite?
