New Cut & Cobalt








First things first - I cut my hair! Obviously :) I took the plunge on Saturday morning, and waltzed confidently into my sister-in-law's salon. She proceeded to immediately hand me a large wine glass full of orange juice and champagne and then got straight to work! I was able to show her pictures from this post and she used them to give me the cut I wanted. I'm still shocked every time I glance at myself in the mirror. I walked by a building yesterday and didn't recognize my reflection in the window! I haven't had my hair this short since high school. I love it though, I really do. It feels so airy and free, with lots of movement and body. I'm sure it'll take some getting used to, especially with styling it but I'm so proud of myself for making such a drastic beauty change. I'm not usually the type to change much of anything, so this is a huge step in the right direction. Maybe it'll inspire more positive changes.

After my cut, I came home and changed into this little cobalt number for pictures. This is one dress that makes me feel instantly polished, and it was the perfect compliment to my new 'do.

  13. Fun dress for a fun do!
    How does this dress stand up to wrinkles? The portofino dresses intrigue me, but I'm afraid they'll wrinkle the second I sit down!

    1. The dresses surprisingly stand up pretty well to wrinkles! I don't notice that it gets crinkled when I sit down. I've never ironed either of mine! Just wash on delicate and let them hang to dry, just like the shirt version. They are easy and versatile!
