Stripes

I've been trying to grow out my cropped hair since I got it cut last February. Not that I don't like it, just that I like to change my hair all the time, so as soon as it was short, I wanted it long again! My hair grows incredibly slowly though, so I hadn't hair a haircut since July in an attempt to speed up the process. It had grown itself into a pudding-bowl-mullet type thing though, so this week I finally gave in and went for a trim. 
The idea was that I had layers put it so I could wear it curly, but unfortunately my hair refuses to cooperate as usual. I will have to go back to my previous styling method of blow drying it, straightening it, then putting on a hat until the whole thing has calmed down.
All Saints leather jacket
The weather here has gotten a little warmer, so jacket season is here again. Usually the weather here is freezing and unpredictable until after St. Patrick's day though, so I don't quite trust it. Is it jacket weather where you are yet? And if you have unmanageable hair, do you have any styling tips?

That dress is gorgeous!! And the leather jacket toughens it up nicely :) The weather is completely indecisive here in Aberdeen at the moment - I actually went out in just a cardigan yesterday it was so sunny and warm only to have a torrential downpour make a mockery of me!!

Very cute dress!! My hair is generally out of control, unless I blow dry it but I'm simply too lazy to do that so it tends to mostly be out of control. Although I have thought for a long time I want to grow it out - but then when I go to the hairdressers I always end up keeping it short:P

It's rainy as usual here in Galway, but the temperature has been quite mild so can't complain too much!

I'm the same with my hair, I always have it cut short and then want it long again! My hair is unruly but I don't really have any tips; perseverance lol!

I love the stripe dress and the boots.

Ugh - i grew out my pixie cut (and will one day do it again) and had the same troubles. because they are so bang-heavy, i ended up twirling back part of my bangs to keep it a little less heavy in the front which really helped. a little bit of straightening product went a long way for me - i have weird wavy/curly hair that does strange things.

anyhow, i love this dress! super cute with the boots

The dress is so cute (reminds me of one dress I have, hmm, I have to find it for summer) and I envy your jacket! :) Today was the first day I could wear a jacket! Luckily the say it'll be "warm" over the weekend, yey!
Your hair looks good! The only tips I have is to eat vitamin D and do little buns around for a while to make hair a bit curly.

Oh wow, great dress, boots and jacket! Awesome outfit that I'd totally wear. Yes, unmanagable hair pisses me off to no end. I usually end up cutting it again or just sleeping on it and realising the next day that it ain't so bad. :-D
