I Wish I Lived "Back Then..."

Dear Blog,

A couple weeks ago I did something that I have always wanted to do. It was a little daring but I'm glad I went through with it. I got a haircut!

But not just any haircut. I wanted a true blue 1920's page boy bob: blunt, to my cheek bones with bangs cut short. Of course, I want to show you what it looks like but discovered some time ago that I am not photogenic, ESPECIALLY when my hair is short. I promise you I look better in person.

I thought I'd pose a la Amélie

I normally don't take photos like this and at this angle. I probably should though because it was the only angle that I looked half decent in. I just feel silly posing like this, so don't make fun.

And speaking of hair...

Guess who can wear her hair in pigtails. That's right. Juni can! She looks all grown up!

And here is a funny moment I captured. She's either styling the monkey's hair or maybe it's a lice check. That's my (well-groomed) girl.

Anywho, ta-ta for now!

  1. I'm a big, huge, raving fan of doing things you've always wanted to do. It looked darling under a hat the other night, but it looks FANTASTIC in that picture! You really do look lot like Amelie (and I have an insane girl-crush on Audrey Tatou so, well, there you go.)

  2. You are beautiful, Emily. I love your hair.

  3. Smems! It's SO cute:) I think every time you have cut your hair short it looks so good. I love Juni's pigtails too! That picture of her with the monkey is too funny:)

  4. Wow!! I love your haircut! Its darling and you are so pulling it off! Please tell me you wear that ribbon in your hair everyday because you look awesome!!

  5. I love your hair Emily! A lot!!!! And I love Juni's hair too :)

  6. i concur - your hair looks absolutely adorable! i love it! and so glad you put juniper's pigtails on here for me to see!

  7. Your hair is... adorable! I love it!

  8. after looking at juniper again i wanna make a comment about an 8 pack of hotdogs for some reason!

  9. I love love love it. Love. Love love.

    If I take this picture to a hairstylist, I will come out looking like Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men, and NOTHING like Amelie. So, you are pretty. So there.

  10. oh my goodness! i am in love with your hairstyle! it is perfect for you. you are adorable!
