Outfit: Classic Polka Dots & A Pop Of Red


If you follow my Instagram you will know that I recently went in for a chop.
It was a cut I sort of wanted (being a bit bored with long hair) but also knew I needed since a lot of my hair was damaged from my frequent bleaches and dyes of the past year! After my hair cut I asked Thomas what he thought about it and he said, "you look familiar." Looking in the mirror, I find myself agreeing with him. Four years ago I had a Jean Seberg pixie cut (it will always been the "Seberg cut" to me since I showed pictures of her to my hair dresser when I asked for the style) and while I grew out my hair a good deal since then, shorter hair is more familiar to me. When I see myself with the bob it looks right to me, although I must admit it doesn't feel right yet! Immediately after my cut my head felt so much lighter, like a weight was off my neck (which I suppose it was in a way) and brushing my hair I keep almost dropping my brush when I get to the ends because it's just a short, quick sweep! But I'm sure that novelty will wear off soon as well and it will feel as familiar on my head as it looks in the mirror.

How great is this classic, yet modern polka dot dress by Apricity? It's sort of like a classic shirt dress, but with a contemporary sheer panel. The dress is available in a few different colors, but I immediately felt drawn to this light brown aptly named "coffee polka dot" dress. My wardrobe is usually dominated by color--it's a sea of bright yellows and greens, every shade of blue, and far too many little red dresses. Neutrals are often lacking, but lately they're what I've been intrigued by the most. I want all of the light brown, camel-y colored knits for autumn! This dress feels like a step in that direction; light and summery but with the warmer, more earth-y tones I might be wearing more this fall.

So much love for this! All hair lengths suit you so well, and this cut is no exception, and it looks so chic with that gorgeous dress!

I love your haircut! I've been thinking of getting a haircut about that length but haven't quite committed yet. It looks beautiful on you though! And I agree! You like the Rebecca we all knew four years ago!

Love the new 'do! I'm in the process of growing out my bob, but I was so relieved to chop it off in the first place!

oh my gosh, that dress!! i wanted to create something similar to this for my shop--but with short sleeves. i was too picky with the fabric choices though and in the end nothing quite satisfied me, so i just scrapped the design. now you're changing my mind again, eep! (also apricity's dresses are so cute, i just want to buy them all.)

and YES, a hundred times yes, on your new 'do. you look chicer than ever--if that was even possible. <3

So funny as I also chopped my long hair this week; I did it myself and it's a bit crooked! Have the same feeling of lightness and brush falling off my hair, and new shiny ends which won't last :) I love the dress with its interesting bodice. Suits you!

How lovely! I really dig the dress, and the mesh neckline with the collar is perfectly done. Really digging the new do as well - sometimes you just have to go for the chop if you're someone who enjoys changing up their hair color.

My Mother had the Jean Seberg crop,and she looked lovely. Seberg wore her hair in this style when she played Joan of Ark. And the look was an overnight sensation.I have to say, your crop is stunning

The new haircut suits you very well. I always feel that way after a new cut- it takes time to get used to it :)
