Blue and Pink and Stripes

Notice how I've worn my hair up every day, save one, for the last three weeks? And it didn't look very good the one day I wore it down? That's a sign that I'm waaaaay overdue for a hair cut. I had really long hair most of my life. I started experimenting with shorter cuts in my later 20's. I think short hair is more flattering on me, but I haven't adjusted to the extra maintenance required by shorter hair.

I'll have to get my hair cut soon. Clare's short hair looks great, and she gets it cut somewhere that serves beer, so I'm thinking I totally need to book an appointment there. Now, I just need to search her archives to find the name of the place...

Speaking of Clare and hair, she's giving away a Misikko Hana Elite flat iron. Why don't you pop on over to her blog, read her review, and leave a comment on this post? You'll be entered to win a Misikko Hana Elite flat iron of your very own.

  1. I love the colors in this outfit, as well as the combination of the full skirt and tie. Very creative!

  2. Me, too. I like all the diagonal lines and the soft colors. It's kind of Gatsby-esque.

    BTW - I go crazy when I need a haircut

  3. WOW - I love the masculine touch with the tie! That's fabulous! You look really fantastic, those colors are great on you.
