Wowza! There’s all kinds of changes to talk about in this post, haha. I suppose we can start with the most obvious one – I chopped my hair off! Oh, and it’s (almost) back to its natural color. I swear this isn’t me having a hair crisis or anything. It’s in preparation for a whole ton of moving and not really wanting to have to deal with my hair at the moment.

My husband and I just found out over Thanksgiving that we will need to move from our current place in New Jersey by Dec. 17th. From there, we are moving our stuff back to Wisconsin, where some of it we are putting in storage and the rest we’ll prepare for our next move. We’ll be in Wisconsin until roughly the first week in January and then we ship out to our next location. We have a pretty good idea of where we are going, but it isn’t set in stone yet. And if anyone has read my horror story about announcing our move too soon, you’ll know it has certainly made us more cautious about saying where we are going until every “t” as been crossed and every “i” has been dotted.

These photos were taken right before we hopped on a plane back to New Jersey, which turns out to be our last flight back there (we were in Wisconsin for the holiday)! I apologize for the horrific lighting in these photos, but it ended up being the only time to quick snap some photos of the new hairdo. I’m still trying to figure out how I want to be styling it, and it has certainly been a learning curve, haha.

I get so surprised when I reach back and there isn’t a rat’s nest of hair by my neck, haha. It’s so nice to style it, though. It takes me less than 5 minutes to get it ready…even if I curl it. It also holds its style for forever. I even wake-up with semi-styled hair, now!

My lovely friend Trina from Beyond Beautiful Salon had talked me into it, as I won’t be able to see her much after the holidays (and she knows my hair better than anyone, now). So, this was a nice option to be able to move and not worry about immediately finding a new hairdresser.

Phew, I think that’s enough blabbering for one post! As a slight warning (again) my blog schedule could possibly get a bit wonky during this moving time, but I am really planning on staying consistent with my posting (especially as I’m getting pretty used to this whole moving thing)!

  1. Oh my gosh, I just found this site and I’m in love!!! I’m a guy starting a journey to explore my feminine side and this site is about everything I’m interested in. I love the outfit and love your haircut. My hair is finally almost that long so I’m excited to try some of the things you’re doing with yours. The colors and patterns of your dress are so pretty. I’m looking for a dress that I feel cute in, but so far everything makes me feel like a man wearing a dress. And I’ve just recently discovered tights! They’re so comfortable and fun. Anyway, just having a happy moment and wanted to say thanks for posting your stuff!

    1. Oh wow! Thank you so much for the kind words, Patrick! You are far too kind. Feel free to click here and send me a message if you want to chat about dresses! And if you ever start a blog, feel free to let me know too. πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

  2. Can we talk about your hair for just one sec – AMAZING!!!
    It looks so good. How is it that you look just as beautiful with short hair as with long?! I think this style suits you sooo much. It’s lovely lovely lovely.
    Hope the moving will go good and that everything will be as you want it to be.
    Much love,

    1. Aw thank you, Mona! I’m still trying to get used to it being short, haha. I’m so happy to hear you think it looks nice! And thank you – so far so good on the moving end…it’s just taking a bit longer than I would like, haha.

  3. Love the new style! And I can relate to reaching back there and not feeling anything! πŸ˜›

    Hopefully your next move will go smoothly! I must say,… you’ve made me very curious with your cryptic description of the situation! Like you’re going on some secret spy mission! πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha! Thank you so much, Natassia! πŸ˜‰ And sorry to be so cryptic – I swear it’s not that exciting haha. But we have had issues with visas and projects falling through after we announce these things…so out of fear of looking like buttheads and getting everyone excited, we’re going to wait until the visas are in our hands this time. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh man, I thought for sure we would find out your next destination in this post. But of course I understand that it’s important to keep to yourselves until it is set! I hope it’s somewhere that you are both looking forward to!!

    Your hair looks awesome! I wish I could pull off such a short cut – I’m so jealous that it barely takes any time for you to style it! Oh, and your tights are adorable with that dress πŸ™‚


    1. Sorry, Jen! I hate not being able to talk about it..but I suppose I can say that this next location requires visa applications…which as our last time going through this didn’t go so smoothly…we aren’t going to get too excited about the new location just yet (or make any formal announcements until those visas are in our hands!). But it’s still a whole bunch of work to try and get ready for it. And thank you so much! πŸ™‚

  5. You look great!! I’ve been itching to change my hair too but I’m holding off for a while and just trying to enjoy the length before dying and chopping it haha. Best of luck with the move! I hear you with wanting to wait to announce where you’re going…any chance it’s Colorado though?? Haha. I can hope! Everyone’s blogging schedule gets weird from time to time so I hear you…I still have to read another post or two from you and play catch up so I get it! Hope you don’t get too stressed in your move! XO

    1. Thank you so much, Lauren! I can’t wait to see your hair change when you take the plunge! (It always grows back, right? Haha.) And thank you…I don’t believe Colorado is in the cards right now…but hey! Crazy things have happened haha. And I certainly wouldn’t mind a move to Colorado! πŸ˜‰

  6. I love your new hairdo! Short hair definitely looks good on you. I cut my hair back in 2006 and it looked alright, but I definitely need some length to look ok haha. I love tbe purple tights with this dress too. So well put together! Oh man, another move! You’re going to be so far away from me now lol. Our Thanksgiving was good. We spent it over at my brother’s new house. It was great to get the whole family together.


    1. Aw thank you, Amanda! I’m still getting used to it. And I’m sure you looked cute with short hair! And oooh yes, yet another move. We weren’t supposed to be leaving the East Coast so soon, but eh, that’s the way it works I guess. I’m starting to get excited about what comes after Wisconsin…but I’m also looking forward to being in Wisconsin for the holidays. I’m really missing snow! I’m glad to hear you had a fantastic Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚
