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.
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?
