(Outfit: 1950s day dress; thrifted F21 cardigan; Howard's Leather Store belt; vintage men's brogues; thrifted pearls and basket purse)
I love short bobs; no question, ear-to-shoulder length hair is one of my favorite lengths aesthetically. But I love having long hair, too, for all the elaborate up-dos I can do, and just 'cause it's fun. Well, looks like I can have my cake and eat it too, thanks to the trusty ol' faux bob.
Also, I buttoned the neck of my dress up all the way to the neck today! It felt sort of dorky at first, but fortunately I'm not one to worry too much about looking odd ; ) Between the faux bob and the high-necked 50s dress, I was channeling a Louis Darling illustration today!
He was known for illustrating the books of one Beverly Clearly, including such heroines of my childhood as Ramona Quimby and Ellen Tebbits.

Here's a [rather blurry] look at the side of my hair; to get this style, I simply wrapped my ponytail around a scarf. You can't tell at all, but this scarf is a chiffon 1950s number featuring rainbow stripes and rainbow zebras!
Have a lovely weekend, kiddos; I'll see you soon.
And have a happy Easter, if it applies to you!
Chocolate + baby animal motifs = my kind of holiday ; )
