10.02 outfit and haircut

Hello, mid-week again…somehow. How are we all? Surviving I hope?

Sunny day today, cold, but I’m going nowhere so less layers required in my outfit. I’m so sick of wearing five or six layers, spring really cant come fast enough.


without cardigan



with cardigan.

And yesterday I had my first hair cut in over 18months. I hate having my hair messed with and as a consequence it was far too long and out of control!
eight or nine inches later and I have something I can deal with


It feels so good, and so light! My hairdresser straightened it for me, but I am queen of low fuss hair, and look forward to experimenting with messier ways of wearing it down!

off to do something productive, like working on my course!

  1. love that dress…is it primark? If it isn’t I was debating one very similar back in the summer for Β£5 in the sale and wish I’d have bought it in both blue and black!

    Once again I’m loving the hair, it really suits you x

  3. You look lovely! I like this cut πŸ™‚

  4. How funny, I just had my hair cut for the first time in like 7 months (with a new blog-friend, Jen of the Style Crusader) and she had gone 8 months.. we were like a support group! I LOVE your cut, Laura.

    When I eventually post on it (or maybe, soon) I’ll link to this post.

    AND the turquoise nails… which brand? xx

  5. oh look at you!! you look gorgeous! i love this haircut on you. it is liberating to get that much hair cut off. oh my… seriously, i adore it. and i love your outfit. that belt looks great. xx

  6. I love your outfit and your hair looks sooo pretty! I hate having my hair messed with, too, and it’s so hard to find a hairdresses that does just what you want.

  7. hey, the new haircut is definitely awesome (my evil hair is misbehaving today, so i may have to brave the hairdressers soon πŸ™ )
    and i love the outfit..it’s been crazily bright this morning, but not v ery warm either! xx

  8. That length really suits you πŸ™‚

    I love the belt, where is it from?


  9. I really like how you wear that belt over the cardigan, definitely something I’ll try out too.

    Love love love the hair! I always ask for low fuss hair at the hairdressers, they normally don’t listen to me, but this time I’m pretty low fuss too.

    Blogging is so distracting I know, although today I was actually being very productive, this is just my little break.

    And off I go too again.

    Have a nice day!

  71. I won’t wear navy as my school uniform was navy and it gives me bad memories! Look fantastic on you though, it’s a fab colour for you.

    I had an appointment with my hairdresser yesterday but I’m not so impressed – the cut is nice, although he cut more than I would’ve liked (only about two inches but I still feel naked), and he used lighter shades of blonde for my highlights whereas I wanted to become a darker blonde, ah! I always suffer from hair-mares!
