A haircut and menswear

Hat: Uniqlo; Coat: H&M; Shirt: Matt's closet (H&M); Pants: Urban; Shoes: c/o Blowfish

I cut my hair! I go through phases in my life where I grow out my hair REALLY long, and then one day, I decide to chop it short. There is really no rhyme or reason to it. I just wake up one day realizing my hair looks totally gnarly, and the feeling grows until I just have to get rid of it. I think this cycle has happened about three times now. I was even going to go for a pixie cut this time around - I had photos and everything! BUT, on the way to the appointment, I had a slight panic attack and decided to go against it. (I think I'll save that for when I can actually communicate with my hair stylist without a translator.)

I've been on what you could call a 'spending freeze' for the past couple of weeks... and therefore, I'm getting entirely bored with my closet. So what do I do? I scour Matt's wardrobe and pick out some plaid. Thanks, Matt. You're a good husband.

PS Can you look at the mountains in the second to last photo? AWESOME.

  1. It's always hard to decide when to cut the hair especially if it's long already. I'm a fan of you're long locks but the new do looks good on you. Adorable :)

  6. Cute! I chopped off all my hair 3 weeks ago, I could have benefited from a translator though- my hairdresser spoke Banjo! We need to skype soon, Charlotte doesn't remember you! :(

  7. The shirt looks great on you, I'm so impressed when other ladies can steal their men's clothes. I don't think my dude is stylish enough for me to pull this off. I'll have to buy him cuter things. Your new hair looks great, and I think every woman should try a pixie cut once in her life. So next time you should go for it ;)

  11. Your haircut is adorable! I love the hat, too. I've been on a spending freeze myself because of school, and I wish I could raid my husband's closet, too -- we're not close to the same size.

  13. OK - you seriously look amazing in the haircut!  Is it really that thick and full of volume on it's own?  The mountains are beautiful and I love this menswear look that manages to look so sweet and cute!

  18. Kristine, I love those wedges, and your pretty plaid shirt, oh and of course your hair is adorable! I go through phases like that too! I want to chop all of my hair off. It's so hard to take care of when it's super long!

  19. adorable! I go through the same cycles, and it's gotten to the point that my friends are no longer surprised if I come back from a haircut and I'm missing most of my hair. Love the new cut!

  20. Very cute, love the cut! I love how wavy it is in the photos!

  21. You look amazing in the short hair. I'm really curious how you would rock a pixie cut, but I suppose I shall find out some day. Also, nothin' wrong with stealing Matt's clothes as long as he's cool with it!

  25. OMGosh your hair!!!!  It looks adorable!  I go through those same exact phases, except I have really curly hair so there is often a few days of crying and regret that follow the cut when I can't get it the same was as the salon had it, but I digress .  . .  You look so cute!

  45. adorable! i love plaid shirts and skinny jeans - one of my favorite combos.

  46. You look so cute with your new hair (and your menswear outfit).  I'm pretty sure you'd look adorable with a pixie cut, though.  I had a feeling you would cut your hair after I saw a photo you pinned on pinterest that said "the perfect medium length hair" or something like that... I was certain I would come here and find you with chopped hair.  I'm psychic!

  47. Yay! Love the haircut! It's so fun. I totally go through those phases myself. and it's always good having a second closet...I use my moms :)

  48. Love the hair! And those heels...they are such a nice touch to the casual outfit/plaid :)

  50. I love the haircut! It looks great on you. I've always wanted to cut my hair short too but after a disastrous haircut in Japan - ironically - I decided to forgo short hair forever. I'll just live through yours.
    The mountains look like they were photoshopped into the picture. WOW... you're quite lucky to be living in such a beautiful part of Japan!

  51. Your haircut is amazing! I do the same thing with my hair, but usually just go for a trim (or at least not as much length taken off) by the time I get to my stylist :P The mountains in the background of your pictures are incredible, and remind me how much I miss living in a mountain town. I grew up in one, and could never get tired of such a pretty scenery.
