As my loyal followers know, I’ve been debating cutting it short again for as long as I’ve been blogging (longer actually) and I finally got the nerve up to go through with it!!! For those of you who don’t, I wrote a blog post at the start of this year detailing my long hair vs. short hair struggle (here).

I went with a cut that would offer me the best of both worlds – an undercut that’s short and edgy, yet long enough on top to showcase my beautiful curls and volume!

A great haircut is nothing without a fab outfit, though, so I rocked my new do with my fave skirt – an acid wash chambray, high-low number from Addition Elle, a vibrant, tribal print crop top from Forever 21+, grey suede, laser cut oxfords from Esprit, and my gorgeous Louis Vuitton Speedy 40 handbag.

I Woke Up Like This

Messy Hair, Marriage, and Mesh

No seriously…  I woke up like this.  It’s  Friday; and also happens to be date night for the hubby and me! Tonight’s plan: dinner and drinks at one of our favorite spots in Montreal!  And guess who’s rocking a  just-rolled-out-of-bed, sexy, messy-hair look?  This girl!  And why, you ask?  Because I don’t feel like spending three hours nearly immobile, letting my hair air dry, all the while trying to fight my three-year-old off from attempting to wrestle with me, and causing my curls to dry in a knotty frizzy mess, because the reality is, I’ve pretty much already achieved that look, with a lot less effort.

We always look forward to date night. With four kids, life can be a little crazy sometimes, scratch that – all the time! So, date night is our special time to regroup, reconnect and enjoy a little intimate time together, one on one, without the constant complaints, demands and sheer lack of privacy that come along with having a large family. And imagine, my husband wants to try for one more!?!? Oh Lord, has he lost his mind?

But anyway, while we still have only four, and date night is still possible, we are seizing the moment, taking the time to enjoy each other, to keep our marriage exciting and strong; and what better way to remind your man of what he’s got, than to turn up the sex appeal just for him!?

So, tonight, to go along with my messy, tangled locks, I’m rocking this chic William Rast mesh top, from Addition Elle, over my favorite black t-shirt bra (Additon Elle), showing some skin but still leaving enough to the imagination; and I’ve paired it with this great quilted pleather belt (Addition Elle), black leggings and charcoal grey, Aldo flats.

For the record, my appearance is nowhere near as human as this when I actually wake up in the morning, but I haven’t scared my husband off yet, so I guess I don’t look that bad!  Ha!
