today is our last day for our summer retrospective: we’re featuring your favorite post from the month of August: a look at my new haircut and back to summer basics. as you all know, hair maintenance has been a bit of a challenge this year. i spent the majority of the spring and summer growing it out. but when restrictions were lifted here in Athens, and I could return to the salon, i got a new look. as many of you have shared with me, you like my hair short(er). so that’s what i went with. so here’s one last look at summer before we head into our fall lineup.
back to summer basics
the dog days of summer have arrived. and while the temps can be downright sweltering at times come August, every once in awhile, a mini-cool front blows through. on those days, i reach for summer basics. and let’s face it, what beats a pair of white denim jeans, a gingham shirt, and sandals? it’s an easy peasy outfit from head to toe J.Crew one of my go-to brands for classic style since 1983. to be certain, there’s just something so classic and chic about a simple outfit. just add a wicker handbag and this outfit is good to go on any summer day.
a perfectly preppy summer outfit
love the updated vintage straight jean from J.Crew. the button fly adds an old school vibe while the high waist keeps these jeans firmly rooted in 2020. i liked the fit of these jeans so much i purchased a pair in cape blue wash.
a look at my new haircut
for those readers who follow Style at a Certain Age on Instagram, you’ve seen my latest ‘do.’ many of you have already requested a few photos from all four angles. so the next few photos are for you. i know many of you were rooting for team short along with my amazing stylist Lyric. i can’t tell you how excited she was when i walked into the salon last week. she and her assistant had their fingers crossed and clippers ready for a short hairstyle. i am totally loving this new summer haircut and i know many of you will too. so here’s a look at my new haircut.
happy Monday, gang!
