OOTD: The daring haircut

Here it is:

And the other side:

The back:

The front:

Outfit details:
shirt: avenue
cardigan: target
black skinny pants: torrid "source of wisdom" - (order 2 sizes down, these stretch out)
oxfords: target

The top:

I'm still feeling a bit unsure of how to style it. I think I'm going to get it way thinned out on the top because it's kind of like a big hair loaf right now :). I love the back and sides though! Just the top and front need.... taming.

I definitely like it better than the last daring haircut I got!

Have any of you ever gotten a daring haircut, or made an otherwise daring personal style decision? How did it go?

Beauty at 100, 200, and 300 pounds

Hello lovelies,

Last Thursday, hanging out at Liberte's, we were talking about how there are so many different ways to be beautiful. How bodies don't come in the same sizes. And then we realized that, between the three of us (Janessa, Liberte, and me), we represented beauty at 100, 200, and 300* lbs.

This was a fun way to change the way we typically (or at least, I typically) think about bodies and beauty. I think, too often, we compare ourselves to each other to see where we fall short, how we can be different and thus "better". But just sitting around and talking about ourselves and what we like about our bodies and our style, rather than being wistful about changing ourselves - it was so great and so freeing.

What Liberte is wearing:
Blazer: Nordstrom Rack
Top: Encanto Ballard
Cords: Fred Meyer Izod (yes! Izod!)
Flats: Resoul
earrings: Red and Me (local designer)
brooch: antique victorian butterly wing (ebay)

What Janessa is wearing:
bdg sweater (urban outfitters)
shirt: H&M
pants: miley cyrus (thrifted)
oxfords: target (thrifted)

What I'm wearing:
dress: Asos curve
Cardigan: old navy
floral leggings: fatshionista sale
boots: Joe Browns (from

Also, this week at I had an unexpected accessory - Lincoln, Liberte's new puppy:

Don't you die to look at his puppy eyes? I DIE.

*I don't actually own a scale, and haven't for years, so I'm guessing, but probably pretty accurately since I'm good with numbers. :)

Upcoming post, also, even shorter hair ideas!

Hello lovelies,

I've got a great post in the works that shows three beautiful ladies (ok, I'm one of them :) and how beauty comes in all sizes!

In the meantime, I've made a hair appointment for Monday, and I'm going to go even shorter on my hair. I don't know why I'm so drawn to this idea, but I think I'm going to get an undercut! I made a pinterest board with some of my inspiration pics if anyone would like to check it out!

Do any of you have super short hair? If so, please link a pic, I'd love to see it and hear about how you love it (or if you don't love it, tell me that too!).
