My hair seems to have gone...

So...as you'll see in a few pictures, the majority of my hair is gone! I had decided a couple of weeks ago that I needed a change, and that I wanted to donate my hair...so a few days ago I finally got it done! I've had long hair for almost all my life, so I was a little nervous. 

Apparently my nervous face looks like this:

But luckily for me, it really wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. In fact, I ended up being way less nervous about it than I usually am when I just get bangs! Haha. The things I freak out about really don't make sense sometimes.

So there it is. 15 inches of hair that I'll be donating to Locks of Love. It's really weird to have my hair in my hand, but for it to not actually be on my head. Surprisingly though, having short hair doesn't feel all that different than having long. I thought that there would be some crazy difference since it was sooo long before, but the only time I really notice it is when I go to take a necklace off or something. I kind of miss having long hair, but I'm definitely getting used to the short, and I think I like it. :) And I hope that it will make a difference to someone else out there too. 

Trench Coat- Thrifted ($10), White and Grey Striped Tshirt- Walmart ($4), Skinny Jeans- TJ Maxx ($15), Black Suede Pumps- UO ($30, $40, $50?), Guitar/Ukulele Pin- Thrifted ($.25), Bunny Ring- Ebay ($3?), Gold Earrings- Savers ($.99) 

It's been really interesting getting dressed in the morning. A lot of my clothes look really different with short hair...some better, some worse. But I've enjoyed playing around! I know it's early to start thinking about this, but I'm just not sure what I'll do when it starts growing out. What do you guys like better on me? Long or short? Ah well, I still have more than enough time to figure it out!

One last thing, thank you all so much for your support with my Grandma and the fires. Both are doing much better! My grandma is still in the hospital, but she's improving. And the fires are all almost fully contained now. And it's been raining!!! In fact it's doing so as I type! I love you, monsoon season. :)

Take care everyone!



  1. Such a cute outfit of the day and im glad to hear that your nan is getting better.
    I think it very bold of you to cut your hair off and its great it can help someone else!
    I also LOVE that brooch your wearing!

  2. Your hair looks AMAZING! Oh, how I wish I could pull off that look as well as you! It gives you an awesome, edgy vibe (especially while wearing a trench coat). And it's so great that you donated your hair!

  3. That's such a wonderful thing to do. My little brother just got out of the hospital and actually decided to grow his hair long to donate from people he met there. Much respect.

    Besides, the short hair on you looks marvelous!

  4. you look AMAZING with short hair. i'm a hairstylist, Tina, and i know what you mean about clothes looking totally different with short hair then they do long.haha
