Four Inches Shorter

I was looking through the last few post and realized my hair was getting super long and unruly. I thought to myself, it is definitely time to cut my hair. I seriously had so many split ends from getting my hair ombre. It feels nice to get 4" chopped off. I feel much lighter!





This is an outfit I wore to a dinner with a couple of long time friends.
I ran into good friend from elementary school that I haven't seen in over 18 years! I can't believe I recognized her. Me, her and another gal ended up going to dinner and catching up. Definitely felt like old times!

Outfit Details:
FP Gini top. Size XS. (similar here & here)
FP Dress (old) worn as a skirt.
FP Necklace. (similar here)
Stuart Weitzman 'Spectacle' Stretch Suede Boot. Size 5. For reference, I normally wear a size 5.5 and these ran about 1/2 size too big. My calves circumference is 11.75". These are super comfy to wear for hours (have worn them to work and shopping).
J. Crew Petite double-cloth lady day coat with Thinsulate. 00P. Color hthr majestic. (see my review here)
Botkier Bag (old). (similar here & here)

  3. Your hair is great! I just had my girl cut off a few inches, too! :) Feels so much better now!

    Cute outfit! I love those boots! I bought my SW stretch suede years back and they are still going strong! I just recently starting rolling the top over twice to try something new. :)

    Glad you got to catch up with old friends!

  8. What a cute top! I love the dotted detail. I'm guessing "FP" stands for Free People?

  9. Cute outfit. Nice hair cut too. I need a major haircut also. I don't know if I can do four inches though =p You are brave. Everytime I cut off four inches it just feels so much shorter.

  10. Can't believe you recognized elementary school friends. I wouldn't be able to. Glad you had a great time. Lovely jacket. A plash of color is always nice.

  11. Your hair looks gorgeous - so very sleek! Love the layering you did here with the dress and top. Seeing a little bit of the print underneath the sheer shirt is a beautiful detail!

  13. Your hair looks great, Ping. I seriously need a haircut too. Not sure if you knew but someone in the AN's forum is selling the ON Dalmatian sweater (link here) if you're still interested. It's a bit pricey though.

  14. Love the shorter hair! :) You can totally pull off sheer blouses more than I could! You look great!

  15. Ping that blouse is GORGEOUS! You always have such unique pieces, and even pieces that I see other bloggers have you make look like one of a kind! Such a talent :) Your hair looks great, have you ever had super short hair before?
