A simple outfit for me today! I tried amping up the look with some Lisa Frank-type earrings, which I cannot get enough of. Anything that reminds me of being seven in Little Mermaid pajamas and eating Trix before school is a winner in my book.

Also, I'm starting to like my hair! The day after the cut I decided it probably was ugly just because it was too straight, so I snuck into Marc's hair wax and started messing with it. And it finally stopped looking like it should go with a pair of mom jeans! Hallelujah. Granted I don't know how to tame it yet so I have a Jersey Shore amount of product constantly glopped on top of my head, but I'm getting there.

Also, I smell like Axe now (thanks to Marc's stolen wax) so now I'm waiting for a mob of girls to attack me like in the commercials, haha. We'll see if their marketing is lies! #socialexperiment

  1. The cut is brilliant and you look awesome! I love how big, dangling earrings go with short hair... Well, started to think about visiting a hairdresser myself ;)

  2. Whhhat, a companies marketing campaign isn't the truth?! I am shocked and appalled ;)
    Your hair looks lovely here!! Texturizing makes a difference and is fun to play with. Love this floral dress, so darling!

  3. LOL I am glad you are starting to like this haircut. I think it looks great on you! I have always wanted a pixie cut but have always chickened out!

  4. I really like the new hair! I feel like it matches your style and makes you stand out (in a good way)! And, like all of the dresses in your shop, this one is lovely.

    Try not to die when a mob of girls attack you. That axe stuff is dangerous.

  5. Those earrings are awesome! When I cut my hair short a couple years ago I had to play with mousse to get it right so I feel your pain. It looks lovely, though!

  13. Aw Marlen, I'm so glad that you're getting along nicely with your hair now! Haha, fluffing it up always seems to do the trick. Sometimes a little hair flip and brush is all ya need. :D

    So I must say, though, that I really adore your earrings with your haircut. They stand out SO well! And they're super pretty, too.

  27. That is such a cute dress! Every time as soon as I get my hair cut, I hate it, but it quickly grows out to my perfect length. I got mine cut a week ago, and already it looking better (to my critical eye)

  28. Texturizing balm makes a huge difference on straight hair. Love the shoes!

  29. I have a pixie and use Twisted Fabric by Chi. LOVE IT. And it smells less boyish :)

  30. I love this!
    And my hair did the same thing back when I had it that short; it just went all mom-jeans on me. And I never really got it to NOT do that. Yours looks SO much better on you than mine did on me!
    That dress is so pretty. If I wasn't pregnant, and hadn't vowed to only buy clothes I can wear while I have this belly, I would buy it right now. I love it that much.

  31. Really glad you like your hair! It always take a few days to make any haircut yours, I think. Hairstylists won't style it like you would/do.

  32. Hell yes Little Mermaid pajamas! I can't get over sparkly kiddish things in otherwise normal adult-like outfits, so I love these earrings! Your dress is very cute too. I think your new hair cut looks great styled like this too!
