This week could have been the start of something new, but I didn’t have the guts to hold my breath and jump. So instead I did it the way I usually do – I overanalyzed the situation, researched it and ended up the same as before.
Apart from one thing – my hair…
I have an old idea that keep popping up in my head ever so often – I want to move out of Stockholm and live in a smaller town in my old age. For this purpose I have put my name on numerous lists waiting for someone nice to call and offer me a great apartment for rent.
This week it happened! I was offered not one but two different apartments in a project that can only be described as my dream living.
But. And thats a big but (and not mine, either!!hehe) – the project is in Norrköping, a nice town situated 1 1/2 hours commute from Stockholm. So after a lot of soul-searching I decided to say no thanks. If I am honest to myself I am not ready to commute 3 hours a day even for the perfect flat. But it still hurts!
But as I am on a path to a new, approved me and processing getting older, I have for some time been thinking about stopping dying my hair black. Going brown is not an option as I am very pale, and brown gives me a gloomy, yellowish tint (trust me, I have tried!) and blonde just isn’t me. I have reluctantly started to look at grey-haired beauties on the internet and after a long thought-process I was ready to take the plunge. The easiest way to do this would, according to my trusted hairdresser, to be a drastic haircut. So that is what I did.
It isn’t grey yet, but it will be after a couple of trimmings, and the grey is coming through slowly. It´s been a hard thing getting used to the short hair, but now I love it. It does need a bit more makeup though.
This pic is a selfie a few days after the cut. I need to invest in some fancy jewelry and go full French chic in style…
My take on French chic (in French colors) with jeans, a shirt from Edblad and a bag from Furla that I bought dirt cheap from a discount store in New York in 2015. The red/white/blue bag is carrying my lunch and a freebie from a glossy magazine years ago…
Before I got my cut I also tried on an old dress that is incorporated in my wardrobe at the moment as I kind of fell in love with it again. If it will make the cut after my cut is another question:)
To be totally honest I think my short hair actually made me look younger, even if more grey. What do you think?
