>I was so long overdue for a haircut, and finally yesterday I went in to chop of the extra length! I hadn’t had my hair cut in over a year- isn’t that shameful? I’m feeling much more free with my short little cut- it’s a bit longer than the bob I got last year, and I really love it.
I put on one of my vintage frocks and played dress up with the new hairstyle! I love this little dress- it’s so floaty and made of a sheer cotton with lace accents on the little puffed undersleeves and the bow at front. It even still has the matching sash! I bought this for our trip last summer but didn’t get any good shots of it, so it was fun to have my husband take some of it now :)
The hat in the last photo was one I picked up last summer on our trip at a Paris flea market. There were stacks of old store stock hats that were the same. I wish I could have gotten more to share! But I picked out two for myself, and a year later find myself constantly daydreaming about the hats and buttons I left behind in Paris, as well as the yummy Laduree macarons. *sigh*

In pattern news, I’m excited to see two versions of the Smooth Sailing pattern made up by clever seamstresses! Andi B. Goode made an absolutely darling version of it in a cheerful checker print. Makes me want to make another for myself! Steph from Three Miles Past made up a pair of shorts from the Smooth Sailing pattern and has adorable pics of her and her daughter on her blog. She also did a write up for Pattern Review! Thanks so much gals, your projects came out great!
