After I chopped my hair shoulder length last year, I decided to go for a slightly bigger change this fall and have my favorite hairdresser in town Hiske  cut my hair a little shorter. After all, there is no better time than autumn a.k.a the dawn of the New Fashion Year, to embrace sartorial / beauty changes. Now that the initial shock is wearing off (my hair was getting quite long again), I’m happy with the decision of the short bob and excited to start playing around with how to style it.

I sometimes have a hard time letting things go (wardrobe cleanses are my personal hell (Hello, hoarder!)), so I think a little shock therapy every now and then is actually quite healthy! What about you guys? Do you feel like changing things up in your look when fall comes knocking?

    I LOVE the new length on you (how could I not!) and I’m happy that it has already grown (sorrysorrysorrysorry) on you. I do think it’s necessary to step out of our comfort zone every now and then. It can change the way you feel about yourself and even at times when it doesn’t turn out as great as it did this time; I think that with great shock comes acceptance and in the end you’re better off. I’ve already had every hair color and every length there is and through my disappointments and self loathing I’ve learned that I am (luckily) more than my hairdo, although I still can get quite frustrated with it!

    It’s one of the reasons I give my hairdresser (hello Hiske) carte blanche and since I have a square jaw I always end up with a short do so for me that’s never a shock. However, lately I’ve been playing with blonde ambition and I’ve let it go to my head – figuratively speaking that is.

    But fall is definitely my favorite season sartorial wise: I can wear my loafers and leather flats without socks and without puddles of sweat and blisters, and can wrap myself up in oversized cashmere scarves to make my basics feel more “chic” and also to hide from balloonheaddays…Because I might be more than my hair, but when my chins start playing up, there is so much more of me to love for others, but also for myself – and I already have enough on my plate (hah!) as it is.

    Staat je wel! Enorm moedig van je, ik zou graag een lob willen, maar ben ‘too much of a pussy’ om het te doen. Zelfde met mijn kleerkast uitkuisen, want stel voor dat ik het OOIT nog wil aandoen.
