Thrift Style Thursday: All About the Layers

I seriously want to just graze over the theme for today with some generalized statements about how great this outfit is because I have to talk about the fact that I chopped 6-8 FREAKIN INCHES OFF MY HAIR!

So here they are. Generalized statements:
1. The theme is layers. It's good for autumn's weather mood swings.
2. I chose to wear pink because I like it and no fall weather is going to force me into an orange and black combo.
3. It's bloody cold outside today!
4. Layer your accessories for some added dimension.
5. Layers, layers, layers.

Whooo. That was a lot of generalization. Now to the good stuff.

My hair is short. I have never had my hair this short. And this is a big deal.

I've been toying with the idea of an elongated (or "graduated" as Pinterest is so prompt to correct me these days) bob for quite sometime. I didn't know if I wanted to chop my hair off, because, quite frankly, I spent 2 years growing it out after my last short(ish) cut. I knew that if I didn't like it, I would be committing to gradually growing out again. Ain't nobody got time for that!

So I did a lot of research. And by research, I mean Pinteresting. And by a lot, I mean that I have almost an entire 'hair and beauty' board full of bobs. After two months of humming and hawing, my cousin and I finally made hair appointments (girl date!) and I had the hair stylist chop it!

I am so glad that I did. After adding a bit of colour (I had no interest in keeping my grown out highlights in an effort to look all ombre), and shaping it (or layering - see how I tied that back in? Huh.. huh..), the cut was perfect. I love it. It's just so darn sassy.

And I am all about the layered on sass.

  1. You made a great call, the hair is STUNNING! Sassy as ever! I'm also really digging this outfit...I would totally wear this! I'm very inspired now and I want to wear a similar outfit next week! Great job, girl!

  2. Your hair turned out SO cute! I do that too when I want to change my hair, I go to Pinterest and pin a bunch of ideas and take them to the hair place with me! I also love your outfit, the pink dress is so pretty! Great layers!

  3. OH MY GOSH I LOVE YOUR HAIR!! This "graduated" bob is absolutely darling AND sassy on you and was such a great choice! I have actually been toying with the idea of growing my hair out into a bob, but ugh it takes such commitment and I have had short pixie hair for so long and I do like it, but every once in a while a girl needs a change, right? ANYWAY, love the hair and I LOVE the polka dot scarf layered over the pink lace dress - genius! :)

  4. I am LOVING that hairstyle on you! It totally has that sassy vibe and it looks amazing on you. I'm also in love with your outfit! That dress is gorgeous!
