It's not just hair



top: Nordstrom Rack (similar, similar) | skirt: Brand? (via Off Saks)(similar, similar)  | shoes: Barney's Co-Op | bag: Celine (similar) | sunglasses: RayBan (buy here & here) | bracelets: David Yurman (7mm in onyx& pearl)

When someone tells you, "it's just hair," they haven't had a bad cut. My haircut from last month didn't turn out as I had hoped and as of lately, this is why I've been hiding it in this quick mini-Snooki-poof-ponytail (that's the best I can describe it. lol).  As much as I'm enjoying not having to straighten my hair, it would be nice to let it down again. I'm trying to grow it out but also contemplating bringing back the "Dora the Explorer" bob!  We shall see.

Happy Memorial Day and don't forget to enter my current giveaway for chance to win a custom fit crop top dress from my Etsy shop. Ends June 3rd!

  2. I empathize with your hair situation but have to say that I think the "quick mini-Snooki-poof-ponytail", as you put it, looks great on you! Love this stripe combo too!

    1. Thanks, Jules. Just hairspray and teasing. It's actually really easy and fast.

  4. Holy crap I thought your super cute hairdo was deliberate. Coulda fooled me. You are really pulling off this "bad haircut" very well. I totally feel you on this one. I just did a major hair transformation and am now forced to sit here typing with my bright orange, green highlights hair a la Gr.8 boy hair cut. I'm trying to walk around and rock it with confidence, but deep inside I'm crying.
    I reassure you....you are definitely working it girl!

    1. Thanks Souda. I'm sure you're rocking it. No one gets orange & green highlights by accident. I wouldn't think so if I saw you.

  5. I love this hairstyle on you! there's so much volume at the crown.

    I've been thinking about chopping my hair off to shoulder length this summer since I've had long hair for years but I'm worried that it will look terrible and I'll just be stuck with short hair for months.

    1. I had long hair for years as well. I chopped it off after the wedding and I loved it. I should have went to the same stylist but I was in such a rush, I let someone else cut it. Don't let me bad experience change your mind. Do it! It's very liberating, I swear. lol.

  6. Haha! That's funny because I think I just got a haircut that one would consider the "dora the explorer bob" hahaha, I was inspired by Karlie Kloss's little bob but now that you mention Dora..lol..they are pretty similar:P Love this outfit, by the way:P

    1. Karlie Kloss's haircut looks amazing, far from the Dora bob.

  8. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love your hairdo! I am actually envious that you can style your hair to hide bad cuts. My hair is volume-less and cannot be styled for the life of me.

    1. My hair is the same way. The volume only stays in updos, other than that, it's pretty much flat all the time.

  9. You are so funny, can't stop laughing at your Snooki and Dora hair description, but the best is that I totally got the idea, so is a great and funny definition. I feel you on the not so great hair cut, thanks to Victoria Beckham and her short bob cut, that never looked as flawless as it did on her, but I like the way it looks a la Snooki, you found a great way to solve the problem. In other news I love the stripes on stripes look, summer perfection here!

  10. I asked my favorite hairstylist for wispy, side-swept bangs to the right of my hair part, and she gave me thick bangs on both sides. I don't have a Snooki-style bun to turn to :/

  12. i totally think that its just hair! and i've definitely had my share of horrible cuts and absolutely terrible colors. i've been known to make re-do appointments, tho. and i don't mind getting a short cut. having my hair sizzled from highlights was probably the only thing that made me really mad. because those "highlights" only went 1/2 way down my hair and i'm still growing that part out over a year later. anyways, i think you would look adorable with shorter hair! the part where you have it is really flattering.

    1. The same thing happened to me once. I asked for strawberry blonde highlights and got orange instead. They didn't want to fix it the same day but I couldn't wait, so I fixed it myself. And that was probably the last time I got highlights. lol.

  14. I've had my fair share of bad hair cuts and styles... remember the perm that lasted for a year and a half? My Jew Fro phase got old real quick... the product of a hope that some white girl could actually do a loose wave hair perm they have in KDramas. Nope. Anyway... at least you don't have to live through a bad style for a good year+! And you can do something chic with it.

    AND LOOK THAT GOOD IN MIXED PRINTS AND A CROP TOP. WTF? No one looks that good in a crop top! :)
