The title of this post really has nothing to do with what I'm wearing, except maybe, the watch. But it was a better title than "Burger Date", which is where I wore this. Sometimes Friday nights call for burgers and too many fries, and killing time in big box stores before you're seated. Nice weather is very slowly approaching, and I'm excited for more nights like this one, where I actually want to leave the house, and maybe even forget my coat (I did).

I also cut my hair last week, but I don't have much to say about it. I chopped eight inches off a few months ago, and to my surprise, didn't feel emotional about it at all. It was just time. This time around I cut three more inches off, and I'm feeling about the same, I was feeling like I needed a change, a way to usher in the new season, and this was it. Sometimes it's just time to lighten the load. Which is saying something, because I've always been an emotional hair-cutter. Whenever I would go through a bad break-up, I'd end up with less and less hair, to the point of a chelsea in one instance (it's safe to say I was an emotional wreck in my late teens/early twenties - who isn't?). So it makes sense that up until recently my hair had been growing out for years. I think the symbolism of a drastic haircut is interesting, whether it's due to a break-up, life event, or simply wanting to start fresh in some way, a hair cut - to me at least - is a tangible record of the experience and a way to physically manifest and work through those feelings. Or, you know, a good excuse to cut back on the shampoo bill.

Oh hey, and yeah, HAPPY SPRING!

I'm absolutely loving the refreshed hair, Julie. I swear you have the prettiest hair and the most perfect top knots. I'm slightly envious!! ;) And me too, used to change my hair after a bad break all the time, except in my case I was a hair dying junkie: platinum, black, bright pink, red... the list goes on! Love this gorgeous look on you and those earrings are seriously fab. Off to check them out!! xoxo Veronika

It's so funny to hear someone else describe something that is so like-me. I wound up with the shortest hair in high school (and in such a wide range of colors) due to the inexplicable need to change my hair every time I felt anxious or excited or really any emotion.

P.S. Literally in love with your bag. Vintage Coach is my weakness.

I just cut 6-8" off from shoulder-length hair. It's never emotional, because that crud always grows back! Warmer weather calls for shorter hair. Pretty awesome.
