Time For A Change

Hello friends, the time had come and I was ready to stop colouring my hair and embrace my grey hair , so after much deliberation it was off to see Jamie, my hairdresser.

I am a rather impatient person so I knew growing out the colour wouldn’t work for me so a short cropped style was decided upon. I’d admired this style on others but wasn’t sure it would suit me but I am so pleased with the result. There is still some colour on top but that may well disappear after my next cut.

My grandson Harry thinks my hair is cool , that’s a win .

After having a variety of bobs for most of my adult life it is fun playing with new styling, both hair and makeup .

On a clear and sunny albeit cool Winter day  John and I drove along the river to Windemere , a favourite spot of ours for photos.

My outfit of the day was an oversize Moyuru shirt , Maude Dainty pants and fluffy Rundholtz  shrug. My shoes are by Melbourne shoe designer Preston Zly.

I am so enjoying having the energy to play in my closet and experiment with different outfit combinations.

On another note I am now retired after officially resigning last week, new adventures await , starting with our Europe trip in September. In the meantime I am enjoying spending time with friends again and spending time in my poor neglected garden.

Thats all for now , have a good week.

Joining Gail at Is This Mutton for Wow on Wednesday and Nancy for Fancy Friday.

    I love the new haircut! I did one similar 7-8 years ago, but wasn’t ready to embrace my grey then. Now, I’m all grey (with shades of lavender), and I love it.
    Your outfit is fabulous – love all the parts and how they go together.
    Hooray for retirement! Many adventures await!

      Thank you Sheila, I am so happy with both my haircut and the natural colour. Your hair is such a lovely colour.
      Some outfits seem to just come together , this was one of those. I was ready to enjoy retirement , will see what adventures await.

    I do love the courage you have to radically alter your hairstyle! Mine took 2 years to grow out as it was so long. You look vey trendy with that buzz cut.

    I may get my hair cut again slightly more radically but don’t think I am as brave as you!

      Thank you Penny, I had toyed with having a short cut for some time and had admired it on others . When I decided to embrace my grey I knew I had no patience to grow the colour out, so short it went.
      Look forward to seeing what you decide on your hair style.

    You look great in your new hair style. I went gray 20yrs ago and love it. I had a similar cut like yours but since have grown back to shoulder length. Congratulations 🎊 on retirement. Enjoy life at its fullest. I love working in my garden when not traveling too.

    Hi Jill,
    Your hair looks fabulous (and isn’t it great when your grandchildren think you’re cool?)
    Short cropped silver hair is like an art palatte, so many creations to make – and any colour
    accessory you like!
    Every moment’s a precious gift, enjoy your vibrant new look.

    Jill your air looks great with that new style and letting your natural colour come through. Will be interesting to see if you let it grow longer perhaps looking a little like Helen Mirren.
