French inspired...

As you may have seen from my over-excited tweets and Instagram posts, I had 4/5 inches chopped off my hair last weekend and it was one of the best things I have ever done.  I asked for this style and I am so pleased with the result. Everyone told me that having short hair would be more high maintenance but so far it has been just as easy, if not easier to cope with than my old hair, I love how quick it is to wash and style. This was the first time I had styled it myself and I actually like the more dishevelled finish to it. You know how much I love stripes and this outfit felt really French, especially paired with this tweed miniskirt... 

Blazer: New Look, top: New Look, skirt: Marks & Spencer, shoes: Clarks, necklace: New Look

This blazer is a long term resident of my wardrobe and always gets pulled out when I am looking for something comfy to smarten up my outfit. I was pretty nervous about debuting my new hair so I went back to my old favourites of a blazer and a striped tee so I felt less freaked out about the whole thing. I needn't have worried about it though as everyone was really complimentary which eased my nerves slightly! The true test of a haircut is how good it looks after you style it yourself and luckily this was super easy to do- this hair styler is my secret weapon at the moment! I feel so much cooler with shorter hair and it has me experimenting more with my make up too, I have never worn so much eyeliner or lipstick!


This skirt was a real bargain in M&S a week or so ago, I love their sale and normally manage to pick up a few bits and pieces for work. I love tweed and red is my favourite colour so this was a no-brainer.This also felt quite French, especially paired with this stripy top, there's nothing like trying to inject some European cool into your wardrobe!


Any tips on styling shirt hair?

You seriously look so hot! When my hair was short I used to wash it, let it air dry for a bit then scrunch/spritz with salt spray and let it do it's own thing! xx

Love the shorter hair, it really suits you! I am so tempted to get mine cut off but worried that it would be a lot more time-consuming than having long straight hair. x

I saw pics of your new haircut on Facebook and absolutely loved it. It looks so good on you. Such a lovely new look.

Love your new hair cut Maria! It really suits you. It frames your face perfectly. I got my hair cut shorter this week as well (like Emma Watson's pixie crop when it started growing out) and I'm absolutely loving it.

Your hair looks amazing! I'm so tempted to go for a good old chop too!

On short hair? Just shave it all off, though that's only for me! I like the way you have done it though, mixed with a smarter outfit it kind of just all fits into place.
