Be a doll and check out the rest of the photos of this outfit here!
1) The floppy gorgeousness on my head is the most awesome hat I’ve ever owned and I might have to wear it with everything from now on.
2) I didn’t cut my bangs. They’re fake. (OK, now you’re like, say whaaaaaat, and I’m like, hey, my hair looks horrible ALL THE TIME in this humid heat, why not fake it til you make it?) It’s one of these clip-on fringes, and it doesn’t look good whatsoever without the hat – but who cares, I’d rather keep the hat on anyway.
I bought the fringe before Christmas when I tried to make up my mind: I’ve had my bangs cut short and blunt most of my life, even though it’s incredibly stupid and impractical considering how curly/wavy my hair is naturally. Last year I’d finally managed to grow them out completely, and I missed them so much, it was nuts.
I got the clip-on fringe to help me decide whether to cut my bangs or not, and since I thought I looked a thousand times better with it than without it, I just went for it. BIG MISTAKE. It’s like my hair gets curlier every day and it was impossible to make the straight bangs look good (or even okay), no matter how much I tortured it with the flat iron.
After six months and visits to a bunch of different hairdressers, now I’m trying to grow them out again. But then I put on the clip-on fringe and the hat and immediately I can feel the thoughts being formed: Wow. That looks really good. Really, really good. Like, awesome. Maybe having bangs actually wasn’t a bad idea at all. Yeah, I can feel it. It will be different this time. Different!
No. I will be strong. Just need to throw away every single pair of scissors in this house, just in case.
