The Long and Short of It

I don’t think I could ever have short hair.

I admire those adorable pixie cuts out there, and funky/choppy bobs like this, and often envy them. Sometimes I’m even tempted to do it myself.

But when it comes right down to it, I am a lazy girl when it comes to my beauty routine.

Long hair means I can pull it up off my face, into a bun, and still look like I put a little effort in for the day. I could go a little shorter, but it needs to be JUST long enough to pull up. Plus, I’m not sure I could rock the pixie cut with my longer oval face.

What say you? Are you a long, or a short haired proponent?

What do you do for lazy girl hair kind of days? Do you have a super cute short cut, or do you keep it long like me so you can throw it back and feel finished without putting in a lot of effort?

Side note, I realized after the day was done that I had put a run in this beloved sweater shrug. RIP sweater shrug. Our relationship was lovely while it lasted. You were good to me, and even with your unusual (for me) shade of rusty orange you were easy to pair with so many outfits. Here’s to finding a replacement for you that comes in just as fun a color.


  1. I am so in love with this outfit!!

    I never wear my hair up…. I’ve tried and then I always bail out before walking out the door! I love pixie cuts too! I tried a pixie cut out once and I felt naked!

  2. Short, short, short. I had long hair for many years and then one day I went and had it all cut off and I haven’t looked back! My short hair is less work for me. But, I did let some bangs grow recently.

  3. Such a cute outfit! I love the pretty dress, hot tights, amazing shoes, statement necklace…everything! I really love long hair and have tried it a few times and am always jealous of people with great, long hair. But I always end up getting tired of it, chopping it off, and then starting the cycle over again. I think I am probably a short haired girl at heart, but I will always have the trying-to-grow-it-out moments. 🙂 Thank you so much for the shout out. You are really too sweet. xoxo.

  4. This is such a pretty outfit! I love the dress and the shoes…they are so cute!

    I had long hair for awhile and then I cut it into a short bob. It was a fun look, but now I’m growing it out…I too love the easiness of being able to pull it up into a bun. 🙂

  5. I never thought I could do short hair either:: I’ve had long for quite awhile, and at it’s longest it was past my bust. But then I decided to try something new and got a lob (long bob) and I love it! My hair holds volume much longer and also holds styles for longer, too!

    You’re outfit is super cute, by the way! You can really pull this look off! I really enjoy your blog.
