(Semi) Bold Act Number One...

A bob.

With no pre-planning, I chopped my hair. For the record, I was going for a sort of Alexa Chung vibe as opposed to a 30-something mom of two vibe... Not sure (given that I am a 30-something mom of two) it was a realistic goal, but it made me feel bold, so success.

Next thing you know, I'll be wearing orange pants. Watch out.

Still so incredibly pro orange pants. Tangerine-y ones.

& the haircut is edgy/long enough in the right places to, at the very mommiest, read as a quite chic, hip mom, which might be as close to Alexa Chung as anyone-who-isn't-Alexa can hope to get. Brava!

I think your hair looks amazing! And to be honest I'd have your style anyway over Alexa Chung's. I love your clothes, you always look really chic.

Desi McKinnon said...

that is the best way to get a bob. one bold move. i had close to that cut in middle school, but i bleached the tips. you know the opposite of debbie harry. so fun.

Lena said...

Holy effing eyebrows. I am in awe and would be so intimidated if your daughter was in my daughter's class. Nice mix of a supermodel and a mom. Beautiful!

lassenbaby said...

That's great! I was trying to write a comment on your earlier post but couldn't remember my login, DOH. I was going to write one word: HAIRCUT. Very nice! I'm feeling the same itch.
