I think the more difficult aspect of growing my hair out is the fact that I have to see photos of myself 3+ times a week where I cringe when I look at the length. Of course, to me it looks worse than others may think, but that's neither here nor there. These photos are from today by the canal near SPU. In the fall, the trees were gorgeous with changing leaves - now the trees are bare and you can imagine how frigid it is just by the sight of it.

Though it's just the first day of Week 3, I'm already finding myself exhausted. I'm not entirely sure why - but I've just been a bit drained lately and come night-fall, all I really want to do is hang out in my room and just relax. I feel like last quarter I did way more in the first few weeks of school, but perhaps it's because everything was so new then and for some reason I had more energy? Also it wasn't as cold then, so that probably adds to it.

The book that I'm holding is a collection of John Muir's writing and belongs to my friend Rachael. We agreed that it would be a suitable/cute prop for these photos, so that's the explanation for the book. Also he and homeboy Teddy Roosevelt are on the back cover so that's cool - I may read it when she is finished! Goodnight, lovelies. xxoo

  3. I really cant believe that skirt was thrifted! I love it and it fits you like a glove

    xo Ashley

  4. I love your necklace! Such a cute detail. And of course I LOVE the polka dots. Always a favorite. The growing your hair out phase sucks. I am at the most awkward stage EVER right now.

  5. Love the boots & jacket! Also makes me think I need a light denim shirt for tucking into skirts - so versatile!

  6. YOU ARE SO CUTE. And I can't wait to see you with long hair again! Although, you are gorgeous with short hair AND long hair (yes! I remember reading your blog way back when you still had long hair!) and VERY few people in the world can say that. I am definitely not one of them (long hair forever and always!). I love that skirt and I so badly want a Jcrew chambray shirt. Jcrew button downs are just the best quality no matter how many thrifted button ups for 99 cents I get. *sigh*

  7. hair length - I feel like my hair is always an awkward length. Sometimes it's short enough to spike, other times I need to stick a bow in it and call it a day. Haha, it's something I recommend for when your hair in "medium-short" (if that's a classification?) since it draws attention to your face without necessarily being a "hair thing" to do. Just an idea! :]

  8. Haha don't worry about your hair. :) After I grew it out I was so glad I did, but the awkward stages are really gross. My friend Sarah (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sarahvannortwick/) is growing her hair out too, and it just got long enough to put into a little pony tail, so there's a little inspiration for you, haha.
