As I’m getting ready for my trip to The Netherlands the last thing I always do is to go to the hairdresser. I need to get the grey roots colored and I almost always change something about my haircut. 

This time I was aiming for a slightly more asymmetrical cut. Although as the below picture illustrates I can wear this style 2 ways. I can tuck both sides behind my ear for a more balanced look or let the hair on the left come forwards which creates a more asymmetrical style. I changed nothing about my color this time (apart from coloring the roots).

Since we were talking about dresses with sleeves yesterday I thought I show you one of mine. The dress was an absolute bargain found on a local fair where local shops like Front Row were giving massive discounts.

Regular readers will understand that I was attracted to the drapes and the unusual design of this dress. It is a great casual dress for the indoors here, as shopping malls (and hair salons) tend to get cold. It’s worn with one of my 10 wardrobe work horses, the simple white cropped pants and paired with my most comfortable white sandals.

Which of the 2 hairstyles shown above do you prefer? Tucked behind ears both sides or asymmetrical?
