I feel like a page-boy with long hair

Anyone ever read the Prince Valiant comic strip? Well yeah, I feel like his long lost sister now.

I was looking at these two photos of myself that I took in Feb. 2005 and Apr. 2006
I decided to do a combination of the two of them for a new hairstyle for myself.
Only problem is that I hate hate hate hate it. I went too short and it just is not something I like on me. I look forward to growing it back out a bit to have the elf hair again which I should have just trimmed instead. Thankfully my hair grows really fast.
[I wasn’t as modest back then at all, I apologize]

I’m going to probably be selling this cardigan on my etsy store because it’s just a little too short on tall and long-armed me. It’s so pretty! I wore it without the collar (which comes with it) two outfit entries ago.

I wore the jeggings underneath the dress because the dress is a bit too short on me. I’m sure it looks a little odd, but I felt much more comfortable this way and would feel confident leaving the house wearing it. Around home I usually wear the dress with thigh high socks.

Okay some of my Laura Ingalls Wilder inspiration came to me still while editing these. haha.

When we bought our car a few years ago, we started to notice how many others there were on the road. We never paid much mind to it. Now that I have bangs I see loads of other bloggers with them that I didn’t really take note of having bangs before, and now I feel less unique. I’m not one who likes blending in. haha. Do other people have experiences like this?

  1. Yes your bangs are short, but you can definitely pull it off! I think you still look really nice. How do you like jeggings? I've heard so much about them but am worried about buying a pair since I'm so hip-y, haha. Also – YES! I've wanted bangs forever and finally got them over a year ago, and then I noticed EVERYONE had them. I've been growing them out for 2 months now. Once they're all grown out I'll decide if I want to keep it that way, cut them again, or get a new style altogether.
