Florals and Lace, Trim Around the Face

Hi Ladies,

…Today I got my hair trimmed as it desperately needed it, and you may see me with my hair in a bun in one way or another, as the temperature rises. My stylist today also did away with my greys, as my fair skin doesn’t particularly look bright with grey.She is amazing!! So, a cut and rinse was in order.I am a creature of habit with the hair cuts though. I will have long hair when I am 90, and my stylist will continually face frame layers, and trim and even out the back.

I told you I liked florals! I bought these shorts last year, as I liked the brightness of yellow and pink flowers. When you live in the South as well, shorts are part of the attire. I decided to wear it and dress it up with a lace blouse in navy to add to the navy in the shorts and also pick up the colors in the shorts. Navy was again repeated with another texture in my bag with ruffles and crinkled leather

Also,  I will tell you, you all know I love my soft, Sofft sandals, but yes, I would like a coral or pink pair of sandals that have support, cushion and at the highest 1 1″/2 heel. I can’t wear stilettos anymore… so if y’all see any… let me know!

Top: Ann Taylor, Shorts (similar color, last year),  Shoes: Sofft, ( similar) earrings: Jewel Box. Clutch/crossbody: Treesje

Have a Great Weekend everyone,

Jess xo

Do you wear shorts? What kind are your favorites? Have you had a drastic change in your hair in the last 10 years, if so, what was it?

      Sure! You can wear it. I consider both florals and lace to be very feminine, pick a color you want to stand out, with your shorts, and perhaps a cooresponding color. Thank you for the nice words! jess

    Love your red hair! I desperately need a trim too because my hair´s grown really long. That´s a pretty lace top you´re wearing, perfect with those floral shorts. 🙂

      Thank you Che. My hair is pretty healthy, so I just get a trim every 8 weeks. Mainly my ends that get a little dry. Glad you like the outfit! jess xx

    That is a great shot of the back of your hair, so pretty! I’ve had short hair for the past 20 years or so, and about a year ago started growing it out. It’s fun to be able to try different styles with it.

    Fabulous hair color!! I love it. I haven’t worn shorts since I was in my early 30’s. I’m not sure why I stopped, but they’re just too casual for me I suppose. I switched to skirts or lightweight pants for hot weather. The only change I’ve made in my hair lately is to let it get longer. I’m not convinced it’s flattering, but plan to give it a couple months more and see if I like it, otherwise I’ll go back to my classic graduated Bob! Enjoy your weekend!

      Thank you! I know shorts are certainly more casual than dresses and skirts, I do wear alot of skirts as well. It is only when it hits the 90 degree mark that I wear shorts. I think it is great to give the long hair a try, for me, I have had long hair so long, I could always wear a chignon or something like it when i get older
      Have a great weekend as well, jess xx

    Wow you are so lucky to have that natural shade of red. It costs me a fortune every month to maintain my red. I’m a natural blond.

    This is so cute! I love how you paired the shorts with a darker top to pull out the darker color in the floral pattern. And I feel you can never go wrong with lace. Very pretty outfit!

I love lace and florals, have quite a bit of florals in my wardrobe, but wanted to bring out the navy. Very true, lots of black and white lace, not as much navy. Glad you like it!! xo jess

    Jess, you have beautiful hair! A trim is necessary from time to time and it feels so much better afterwards and the styling gets so much easier. I have had longer hair when I was younger but always the same style!

    Love your lace top!
    I never felt comfortable in shorts, I just love my skirts and dresses!

    Have a wonderful weekend, the weather is finally warm and sunny here and we have a long weekend with Monday off 🙂

      Hi ANnnette, my friend
      Thank u regarding my hair. I have a great stylist who really listens as I keep it long but she recommends the right products and only cuts enough my color got rid of the greys
      Thank you regarding the top. U know I love lace. I feel good about shorts, but also love my skirts too, have an excellent weekend and enjoy the day off, tomorrow is a rest day as I just had pt, so I need time to recoup
