Locks of Love: A Dedication to Erica and Yetta













































Gap Cardigan
Shirt c/o H&M
Old Navy Shorts
Coach Shoes (thrifted)
Salvatore Ferramago Handbag (thrifted)
Vintage Silver Cuff (thrifted)

Every few years I cut all of my hair off.  This past year I've been growing it out so I could donate it to Locks of Love in honor of both my cousin and my best friend who both lost their battles with cancer.   I miss them both a great deal and while it's kind of a silly little token, I hope it might bring a little bit of happiness to someone else in their battle.

    1. It's a great organization and I think that's really awesome that you've done it already! (Sorry about not coming down, I was trying to schedule to have a morning away from everyone so we could maybe do a meet up. It would have been great to have meet you in person and I know you're heading off to school soon so I'm bummed about it.)

  2. I love this simple look with the pretty printed shoes! And I've been thinking about growing out my hair to donate to locks of love. I haven't done it before but I think I will once my hair is long enough. You look really great with short hair, like Carey Mulligan :)

  3. Love the short hair - it really plays up your features! I donated hair to Locks of Love years ago - it's a great cause. Also, after suffering from stress-related hair loss, I've realized how important it is to feel good about your hair!

  5. You are such a beautiful human being, from the inside and out, truly inspiring! I've never heard of such organizations, this is really a great way to show your support!

    And of course, being a fan of short hair, your new pixie makes my heart melt ^_^

  10. *gasp!*
    Your hair is gone! And you look so good in a pixie cut! I didn't know you'd cut your hair off every few years, that's such a great practice to have. It shows what a generous and thoughtful person you are too.
    Love the new do :)

  12. Wow Katie, what a selfless tribute to loved ones who have passed. You clearly have a big heart and I'm sure the person on the receiving end of this act of kindness will be very touched.

    You look great with short hair; it really highlights your bone structure.
