Hello there everyone!

Whew, I cannot wait to get this hair of mine cut. It is an absolute lion's mane of chaos. I haven't had a cut or trim in about a year, so it's very damaged and dried out. I have an appointment on Monday which I'm pretty excited about! Nothing too drastic. Just getting all the dead cut off (which is actually quite a bit), and then I'm going back to my comfort zone of side swept bangs. I thought I wanted to grow my bangs out completely and get rid of them, so I had been doing that for about a year and a half...and then I realized that I don't really like them grown out at all. Truthfully, I like to hide behind my hair and especially my bangs. I'm really insecure about my face for some reason and don't like people to look at it up close or for long periods of time (ironic that I have a fashion blog where people can stare at it for as long as they want, eh?). But having bangs helps me feel somewhat hidden and like people can't really see me, so I think I'm going to fall back on them. I've had some sort of bangs ever since I was a toddler and this was the first try at not having them...safe to say bangs and I are meant to be! 

I'm not expecting too much thrill or drastic life change out of a hair cut; I've never been and never will be happy with any hair cut or my hair in general (it's the most hopeless cause of my appearance, ha), but it will be a nice step towards improvement I suppose!

With much love, Lauren.

This is such a cute combo! I've been wanting incorporate chunkier necklaces into jewelry collection, and I really like the one pictured here. Thumbs up also for bangs. Bangs forever and always, girl.

Hooray for bangs! I think they look super cute on you so I'm excited to see the new hair cut.
Also this dress is such an awesome color. I love it!

Ella, please get a blog! I'm sure your blog would be an absolute hoot to read-you're so enthusiastic!

You know, I'm the opposite I'd you in that respect- anytime time I've had bangs(a fringe in my lingo) cut, I've immediately grown it out. I really like the look of them and wonder about having one but never get further than wondering. I'm surprised you view your hair so negatively, you have SUCH versatile hair- I notice it is never the same from one post to the next, you always keep it changing. I am officially useless at my hair. NO idea what to do with it!!!
Great combo of dress, necklace and headscarf! X

I'm in love with this outfit and I must say that color is so so you! Completely love.

Seriously, everything about this is amazing. The necklace, the headband, those shoes (that I swoon over every time they make an appearance on your blog) -- it's simple but seriously perfection. Also, I've said it before but I'll say it again: you're really seriously very beautiful, Lauren.

I absolutely love your dress! I'm thinking of getting one too! I've never ordered from them before, do their sizes run small? It kinda looks that way. Would you mind terribly if I asked what size you got?
