Sunday Best: The Mournful Lament of a Foolhardy Girl

Boater

If you follow me on twitter you'll have read that in a moment of madness... well, actually it was more annoyance at my hair constantly hanging in my eyes. I took a blunt pair of kitchen shears to my own hair. I've done it before and doubtless I will do it again but I instantly regretted my actions and I've been mournfully lamenting the loss of my long sweeping fringe ever since. Thankfully hair grows and in the past week or so it has grown at least half a centimeter, not much but just enough to cover my eyebrows and even though I don't like it, I can live with for the meantime.

Dress - Alexa Chung for Madewell, Coat - Topshop, Teacup Necklace and Bow Brooch - Vintage.

The only plus side as far as I can am concerned is that I can unearth all the hats that I bought when I sported this fringe last time but didn't suit my dearly departed haircut. I love this felt boater because it has a subtle air of school uniform without being conspicuous. I suppose this is echoed in my dress, I know its quite hard to see under there but its black velvet with a silk peter pan collar.

Even though Spring has finally arrived in Edinburgh, the sun is shining, crocuses are in full bloom and laundry flapping in the breeze, its still quite chilly. I'm still not willing to give up my winter clothes just yet. I need to slowly ease myself into paler hues. I have my work cut out if this outfit is anything to go by...

Are you ready for Spring?

  1. I really enjoy reading your blog. You definately did a great job with the fringe, I always used to cut mine and it always ended up fairly wonky, that and I don't suit a full fringe! It's difficult preparing for spring, there are so many lovely clothes in the shops, and stored in boxes in my house but with it being so bitterly cold outside feels like spring will never come again!
    Nice to know somewhere in the UK has sun, where I am (near-ish London) has a grey/white sky, sleet and is freezing!
    Lovely outfit. Victoria x

  2. I actually really like the short fringe on you!
    It really is a tough one though, one wrong snip and it can devastate your look. Luckily yours looks lovely!

  5. You really suit your fringe like that, your hair is long enough to pull it off lovely.

    What a gorgeous outfit, I love it.

  6. I think your fringe looks gorgeous on you. Whenever I trim my bangs after telling myself I'm growing them out, I always regret it, too.

    BTW, I meant to comment on your Edinburgh post. I was there on my study abroad in 2002 and fell in love. We were staying in the university dorms and every day we would climb Arthur's seat! I miss it and want to go back!

  8. I think your fringe looks very nice actually! I am definitely ready for Spring, and it must be so pretty in Edinburgh right now, last time I visited was in May, and it just looked so lovely in the sunshine. Beautiful pictures as always, your blog is one of the best photographed I have ever seen!

  10. As I wrote you earlier on twitter, I think you look really lovely with this hairdo! But I know how annoying it can be when you regret chopping it off impulsively!
    The last picture is definitely my favorite, and guess what, it's the one with a big smile on your face :) Chin up my dear, you look adorable as always!

  12. This is literally the first time I have been on your blog (couldn't resist after seeing your photos on Time Enough for Drums) and after your second photo I was convinced I recognised the building. I should, I was in the Botanic's a couple of weeks ago when there was free entry to the glass houses! Yours is the first other Edinbugger blog I have found.

    Love your photos, and your fringe looks fantastic, so don't worry about it. Looking forward to trawling through some of your older posts.

  14. I think you've done a good job with the fringe and it suits you, but if you're not comfortable it will definitely grow out soon! The boater is lovely.

  20. your fringe looks just fine to the rest of us! but i know what a change it can be when you regretfully cut them shorter than intended on a whim - i do it far too often! your outfit is beautiful too, by the way :) xoxoxox

  21. I love the collar peeking out on your jacket. You're fringe is lovely, it really suits you. Don't worry. I'm quite jealous of your hair!

  22. I really like this outfit. It looks so good, but also so comfy. One can see that you like it yourself. Though I don't think you fringe is that bad, I liked the old one better, too. And about the sun in Scotland, I'm so jealous.

  23. I think you look darling Cait, the fringe and hat combo is a winner in my book! Kind of wish I had the coat in black too, I find my green one tricky to style up at the moment. Hopefully it'll come out to play more in spring when I feel like wearing brighter colours! Sally x
