I already shared a wrap-up of this year’s Mary Blair March outfits, but I want to take a moment to look at the differences between March 1st and March 31st, even though I was wearing the same Harley planes print dress both days.
At the beginning of the month, I got a major haircut. Including BANGS. I can’t even remember the last time I had bangs, and while I’d been talking about doing it for months, I was pretty scared to actually go through with it, because I was worried I’d be be instantly filled with regret. But I LOVE them! I also had some ear piercings done early in the month. This is another thing I’ve thought about doing for a long time, and like the bangs, I’m glad I finally went through with it! I’m also really, really happy I had both things done before everything locked down, because who knows when I would have had another opportunity?
Obviously, the world we live in also changed a lot from March 1st to March 31st, to the point where it is now almost unrecognizable. Nothing is the same anymore. So I feel like these superficial, physical changes are a good metaphor for the events of 2020 so far, only mine are a lot more pleasant, with a lot less permanent ramifications!
