“Zooming down the street”

I talked about this blazer a good bit on Sunday, but let me say again that I absolutely love it!  And it was perfect for work last week, when my media center was hosting a teacher meeting.  I wanted to look very professional, and this blazer did that perfectly.  Yellow is definitely becoming one of my favorite colors to wear.

My hair is getting overdue for a cut.  I’m thinking of shaking things up a bit and trying something I’ve never done before: getting a variation on a pixie cut.  Not super short, but definitely shorter than anything I’ve ever tried before.  I figure that summer is a good time to experiment with a new hair length, since it gets so hot, and if I don’t like it, I can just grow it back out.  While I love my bob, I’ve had it for six months now, and I’m starting to get a bit bored with it.  I think something short, layered and piece-y could be a lot of fun.

What do you think?  Should I go for the pixie cut?

(And by the way, do you like the new header?  I made it with my mad photoshop skills 🙂 )

    im a huge proponent of trying new haircuts, especially short ones in the summertime! we gals get way to attached to our hair. i had mine super-long until the end of high school, and it was only from a trim-gone-awry that i learned how much i love short hair! as you said, if you hate it, it will grow back!

    Wow! This blazer is amazing on you! The cut, the color, the !pow! against the black – love it all! And I think you should totally go for the new cut. It’s only hair – it will grow back! Trust me, I’ve tried it all 🙂

    Ok, yellow is definitely an amazing color on you! I love it and you look so wonderful. Yes, I think a pixie cut could be really great on you, I think you have the ability to go really short (unlike me!). And yes the header is pretty cool, showing off those adorable shoes.

    Maybe not a pixie, but something definitely “edgier” and piece-y. That blazer is amazing! I envy your ability to find so many awesome eBay items. Since I found your blog I have changed up my style and I’m trying lots more combos I wouldn’t have before. Thanks!

    That blazer is a great find, lady. You are an eBay whiz!

    And I say go for the pixie. Hair grows back, and summer is a great time for a short cut!

    The new header is beautiful, and I’m very impressed with your photoshop skills.

    The yellow blazer looks amazing on you!

    I, too, say go for the pixie – but I never do anything new with my hair.

    I said it before but it’s worth repeating — that blazer is perfect for you. And yellow is an attractive color that works beautifully.

    I’m not qualified to give hair-advice, but I’d love to see you with a pixie-do. I believe it would magnify your innate cuteness. 🙂
