Semi-Charmed Life

It's something I've been thinking about doing for a while now, and this weekend, I decided to go for it. Yes, I cut my hair! I cut about seven inches off, which unfortunately was not enough to donate the hair to Locks of Love. (You actually need 10 inches for that!) It definitely feels different, as I haven't had my hair this short since about 1998. I cut it this short for the first time in high school, grew it out, then cut it again during college. Once I met my husband and started working, though, I just kept it long.


As Spring begins, and the weather starts to warm up, I thought what better time to take this step. I'm going to be 33 in a little over a month, and I really wanted to make a big change. Hopefully it wasn't a bad decision.

Today's outfit, a beige suit from Tahari from Arthur S. Levine, is not my favorite suit, but I bought it during grad school when I needed some different suits for presentations during class. The suit jacket is a little big on me; I really need to buy a size 4 pants and a size 0 or 2 top. Seriously. My suit jacket from Express is a size 0, and that astounds even me. But this suit came as a set, so I was stuck. Hopefully it doesn't look too big on me.

I'm also wearing BCBGMaxAzria peep-toe jelly Michelle Wedge Flats in black. I love these shoes, but they are really squeaky, and I think the rainy weather is making the noise worse. George was just terrible when I took him out this morning. He hates the rain so much. I eventually had to give in and take his raincoat off just so he would go the bathroom. Talk about stubborn!

I'm thinking this may be the last week for the Fashion Challenge. I need to go through my closet and see what I have left that is suitable to wear to work. I will just have to forfeit those things that I still need to get altered, as I never did make it to my alterations lady. Oh well (sigh). It's been a fun road, but I miss the rest of my wardrobe! :)
