For as long as I can remember, I have had long, straight brown hair. Sometimes I go a little darker, but I rarely go lighter and I haven’t cut my hair short since elementary school when I wanted hair just like Posh Spice, (you know you all loved her hair too!!).
So last week I finally worked up the nerve to make a change. My friend Abi Diedalis has been doing my hair for years now and she is seriously SOO talented. I showed her a few pictures of haircuts that I really like, (like this and this), and then I told her to do whatever she thought would look best. She is one of the best hairdressers in Columbus and I figured she knows better than I do what kind of haircut/color would look good on me. Please let me tell you, I was nervous when I saw 6 inches come off….but I love the way that it looks now and it has given me this new motivation to step outside my comfort zone a little more.
For spring this year I’ve noticed a lot of embellishment trends emerging: tassels, studs, pom poms, lace details, fringe, etc., and so this great military style jacket with studs and zippers is a perfect way to incorporate those trends. The cut of the jacket and the ruffled collar makes the military style much more feminine and wearable.

P.S. – this exact bag is no longer available but I linked to two similar Kate Spade versions, one of which is majorly on sale!
