Concerning Hobbits



Club Monaco dress & gloves, Shoppalu bag, Twenty8Twelve leather jacket,
H&M booties & blouse, earrings c/o Brooklyn Designs, vintage belt

If there's one colour combo that I will always love forever and ever, it's rich forest green coupled with navy. My favourite. I think it might be because I was a huge geek growing up/still am and I used to obsess over the mystical world of Lord of the Rings. Anyhoo, I think it instilled this great love of forest green in me (probably cause I loved Legolas so much) and I feel like when it's paired with navy, it gives off a way more casual yet still elegant vibe than if it were paired with go-to black. Just an FYI, I still to this day stand by my choice of "Concerning Hobbits" as a wedding march song when and if I ever get married. So yes, still a huge geek.

Anyway, aside from waving my nerd flag high, I'm really just preoccupied with my hair slash how much I need to cut it. Any Vancouverites know of a good local stylist? I had an amazing one in Toronto but no one here, and this mop needs a serious chop. I'm thinking of going about this short - thoughts?

  1. Oh pally, you and your haircut :) We'll have to chat about it some more during our skype date... if your schedule permits, Thursday {morning for you, dinner for me} works for me. Say 8am PST? Let me know.
    xox,
    Cee
    PS: I'm a huge fan of navy and forest green - I always find it makes me look really pale, though, sadly. You, on the other hand, wear it beautifully.

  3. That is a great color combination. Oh, how badly I need to incorporate MORE colors into my own wardrobe. You have such a knack for layering I love it! I say go for the haircut! It's a fun length, still has a lot of room for styling and it's the New Year - why not!?

  7. I love this, it's so chic! As for your hair, it's always looking so gorgeous. I think Olivia's length would still be just as great on you too. Good luck finding a stylist!

  12. Yes! You are speaking my language. Which isn't, might I add, the Black Speech of Mordor. Coming from one former LOTR geek to another, you're much more Elf than Hobbit. ;)

  13. I love the colour combo and that it is LOTR inspired. That's when you know the world is in sync.

  19. You look great, Alex! I think OP's hair will look lovely on you... wish I could help with a stylist. I just found a great place here in Calgary so it's not going to be fun coming back home and having to hunt down a new one.

  27. I LOVE that you want to use that song in your wedding. That is so awesome! I wanted to use the song from Lothlorien but couldn't really figure out how to make it work. Love the layers in your outfit by the way!

  32. Yes, love the combo of forest green and navy!! So pretty! I love that song! It's so beautiful and happy! Since I'm only 4'10", people at work tend to call me a hobbit, but I take it as a compliment because hobbits are awesome! lol

  33. Love the unconventional layering and natural make up look here lovely :) I definitely think you should go for it and get the shorter haircut. You would rock it!

    Looking forward to seeing you on Friday... it's been too long!

  39. I think you would look fabulous with Olivia Palermo's hairstyle. It would totally suit you and be a refreshing change from your long locks. Plus if you don't like it, it'll always grow back!
