Split Ends

Dress? Vintage Scaasi (Here is the exact one on Etsy and here is a different colourway for a bit cheaper. Let's be twins!!!) Shoes? Guess, thrifted (similar here) Clutch? Hilary Radley Belt? Thrifted

A few things got a little facelift around here. My favourite purple wall got a fresh coat of purple paint and my hairs got a trim... Well, the one side got a trim and the other side got a chop. 
I've been pinning assymetrical haircuts on Pinterest (where else really?) like it was my job and yet, when I finally made it to the hairdresser last week, I chickened out and just got a trim. 10 minutes later I decided it was just hair and it was time to cut away the dead and just go for it. 
I love the cut but I won't lie, I had a bit of regret as I thought about my curls that had taken so long to grow... It's not even that big of a cut but it takes me forevvvvver to grow out my hair. Forever. I'm not one of those people that goes to bed with a pixie and wakes up up with a bob. Those curls were three years of hard work*.
But I gave myself a little speech about not wasting time regretting a elective haircut. As they say 'don't cry over spilt milk...' or in this case spilt ends.


*Not sure what this hard work is? Though when Matt gets a too short hair cut he earnestly tells me he is working hard to grow it back by watering it every day....

Adorable! And, just as a side note, if you want to grow your hair faster, try Trader Joe's vitamins "Women's Multivitamins for hair, skin and nails". I use it and it made my hair grow REALLY fast. Everyone I know who I've recommended it to (about 4 or 5 people) love the results too. :)

Yen that dress is absolutely gorgeous on you - and I love it in front of the lilac wall!! I agree - your hair looks great, but I know what you mean about chickening out when you're sitting in the chair ;)

From Grade school to my early 20s I didn't have a "real" haircut, just trims. Then I said, "What the heck, it grows back!" I've had no hair regrets since. :o) Glad you went for it!

This outfit is SO GOOD! Obsessed with it all from H to T! I love how you paired an edgier belt with such a ladylike dress! That's one of my fave things to do and you reminded me that I have a pink/purple vintage jacket that would look amaze with my black southwest belt! Thanks for the inspo! And p.s. Dying over those heels too! Great find!
