My new favorite pants, Audrey Hepburn, and the like

These are my new favorite pants.

I absolutely adore them!

Maybe it's because they remind me of Audrey Hepburn

I generally like everything to do with Audrey Hepburn.

I strive to be at least half as classy as her in my lifetime....sigh.

Speaking of everything Audrey Hepburn

I've been thinking seriously about a pixie cut...sometime in the future


here's the dilemma

I feel like my long hair is kind of a part of who I am

so I'm not sure if a cut like that would be a fun change or a serious mistake...


Have a fantastic day!


  1. I looove your long hair. And I bet Steve does too... just sayin :)

  2. Those pants are adorable.

    And i think you could totally pull of a pixie cut.

    But you'll probably have to go with what your husband thinks :)

  3. I think of anyone, you could totally pull off that kind of hair cut!

  4. Your hubby is probably going to say do what you feel looks best! :) that's what Andrew always says to me! I say do what you feel will make you feel prettiest! :) you're the one that has to live with it. I say don't cut but that's my opinion! I cut hair... let me know if you'd like me to do it!?

  5. Okay...I have stopped by your blog only a handful of times, but I'm going to throw-in my two cents...

    (PS: I'm the one from the Oakhurst Ward who baby-sat you and Taylor during Relief Society functions ages ago. Your dad was my seminary teacher and your grandpa took me on my very first horse ride during a pioneer day picnic. I was 6.)

    I have had "the pixie" myself a number of times. In fact, I had a pixie when I met my husband. My mom had passed away the week after I returned from my mission and (at the same time) I found out I had a tumor on my pituitary gland. I was a little angry, sad, and weighed down. One night I told my friend to just "chop it." It might sound weird, but I felt a rebirth. It was as though a weight was lifted and I also started feeling quite sassy. I felt like I was "out there" with nothing to hide behind. It forced me to be brave. It felt good. Cleansing. I loved it. BUT! That was me.

    My personal thought: Life's short...and it's just hair. If you've always wondered what it would be like, then do it (at least ONCE in your life--at some point). BONUS: You have the nose, the jaw, and the cute face to pull it off beautifully. NOW (that being said), if you have never had short hair, keep in mind that it will be a bit of a shock. For most people, there is a wide range of emotion associated with hair (note my own personal experience above). I learned as a cosmetologist that there are women who will refuse chemotherapy treatment because of the fear of losing their hair (and consequently their identity). That bothers me. Hair should not define who you are or define your femininity, but for many women it IS a huge thing...and that's okay. It's important to understand. Something to consider.

    On the other hand, you may find that you love it, that it takes, like NO time to get ready, and that it makes you feel a certain amount of spunk. Think about it and don't do it as an impulse. If you decide to do it, though, HAVE FUN WITH IT. Your attitude determines everything and at the end of the day, know that (although it would take a while) it WILL grow back.

    PS: You can also donate it to the charities that collect hair to make wigs for children and chemotherapy patients. Now that would be cool too. Here are some sites to check out:

    (I only have experience with Lock of Love, but these are a few so you can see that there are other organizations out there. Also, I have known people who have donated braids even when they had colored them.)

    Good Luck!
