a new haircut | wanderlings

and it may not look like it, but i took about 7 1/2 inches off of my hair. i’ve been growing it out for years, and while i kind of had a breakdown on the way home, it felt nice to get rid of it.

kate spade’s april monaco collection

i must confess, i wasn’t too impressed when i first saw kate spade’s april collection. while the pieces were beautiful, none of them really seemed like pieces that i would actually wear. now that the pieces are in-store, i’m changing my tune a little.

shipley coat
riviera garden graduated statement necklace
milo clutch
jackie capri
