My hairdresser listens to me and my OOTD

My hair has been getting me down lately...
too thick and too heavy
so I asked my talented hairdresser to thin it out and crop it into a French bob.
She, my dear readers, is a miracle worker.

All I need is to dry it with my diffuser and add some mousse and voila
I'm ready.

Slightly shorter in the back
with face framing layers at the sides.

black loafers, Aerosoles
black Symplii tank top

baroque opera length strand of pearls
sterling bangles

I don't have any plans for the weekend but have a play date with my granddaughter today.
That in itself is a recipe for happy.

loving tangerine these days
especially these roses

Hope that you make time to stop and smell the flowers.
Be good to yourself and others
and don't forget to smile!


  1. A talented hairdresser who listens is priceless.
    Your new 'do looks so soft and healthy with lots of body. It's a very flattering cut on you.

    Have a lovely weekend!
    xo, A

  2. Great haircut - love it with the red lips. Very chic.

  3. The new haircut erased years off your age!
    Enjoy a free weekend!!

  4. You have a lovely natural wave, that takes me 20 mins with my curling tongs to achieve.

  5. A great haircut makes you feel wonderful, non? Yours is gorgeous! Enjoy your day - the sun is shining!

  6. perfect haircut leslie! enjoy your weekend! xo

  7. Wow love the new photo chic with a very knowing look!
    A beautiful cut that is easy to manage....what more can a girl want?

    A relaxing w/e with Mr H. Ida

  8. Love it, and the colour is also beautiful. You have a treasure of a hairdresser!

  9. What a great cut! And I agree with Duchesse that the colour is fab as well. Have fun with your little Isla (I know you will!)

  10. I so understand the hair thing. I always feel so guilty complaining about my think (very) curly hair. I actually had mine cut a few weeks ago. Your new "do" look fabulous. Bonnie

  11. I can only echo all the accolades--you look sooooo good.

  12. Love, love, love your hair. What a great style for your wavy, thick hair. (I'm GREEN with envy, by the way!)

  13. Your hair looks really lovely ! You have exactly the same wavy hair as me, although I had mine cut into a very short bob a couple of months ago, and it doesn't look good au natural . I have to straighten it. Can't wait for it to grow a bit longer so that I can do the mousse/diffuser thing . It's so easy!.....Yes I am missing my curls at present. Have a great weekend.

  14. Love your new haircut, and so envious that it's so easy to manage. Have a great time with your little darling.

  15. What beautiful roses! I like the cut--ad all your natural wave!

  16. Nothing better then a good haircut to freshen us up! Looks good!

  17. The way your hair looks is exactly how I wish my hair did look. I am thinking seriously of changing hairdressers as mine made me really angry. I got an awful color and I am not at all happy about it. I know it is only hair, but it is my hair. You are lucky to have a great hairdresser.
    You look really fabulous!

  18. Of course I am deeply envious of your naturally curly hair!! The cut is perfect.
    Hairdressers - I love mine and we've been through a lot!

  19. Your hair looks great! And yes, we all need to take time to smell the flowers. Have a great weekend!
