First Impressions {In the Closet}

For the most part, I’m comfortable with myself. There are days when I think I look like a big hulking figure clunking through the stacks at the library but then there are days when I feel like I’m strolling down my own personal red carpet. The times when I’m most unsure are when I’m meeting someone for the first time. First impressions are lasting impressions. So I usually try to wear something that makes me feel confident.

And, believe it or not, short hair does it for me. I’d been wanting to cut my hair short for a long time but I’d been resisting the urge. Short hair makes me feel both funky and feminine.

With short hair, I have to really work to keep from looking too masculine, so that means wearing girly clothes, fun accessories, and more makeup. Yes, Shontel, that includes lipstick. My sister is forever telling me that I need to wear lipstick.

    the cut is not masculine on you by any means, i think it can be girly (with the added hair accessory) or a bit sassy (when you spike it up a bit). either way, i love it + that outfit. enjoy your day pretty lady;)

      Thank you. I think it’s just startling to me. Still. I do this every time I change my hair. I love it then I hate it then I’m like oh I can deal. LOL The joys of being a girl.

    Wrong!!!
    You don’t look masculine at all. I’ve been wearing my hair uber short for years, I’m just entirely too lazy to do anything with it.
    I don’t really have confidence issues……….do I?!? No, wait…..maybe I do?!?

      LOL Reggie, you’re so silly. I think the last thing you have a problem with is confidence…
