Hair Inspiration

I have an appointment for a haircut coming up soon, and I am having trouble deciding what to do next. In October I cut 6 inches off my hair and it was the shortest I've had it in a very long time. I liked having it short and was ready to keep it that way for a while, and I pinned this photo for inspiration for my next cut:
If I did this, it would be the shortest I've ever had my hair, but I think I would like it, especially with those longer pieces in the front.

BUT I can't do it just yet. I am in a friend's wedding in November, and I really want/need to have long hair for that. I am planning on doing my own hair for the wedding, and if there's any chance of it looking good, I'm going to need it to be longer. (Don't worry Ashtin, I'll be sure to practice so I don't ruin your wedding pictures!) I'm thinking either something curly and down or a simple bun:

So I'm filing away the top picture for sometime in the future and finding some other hairstyles that I can do while I'm transitioning from short to long. Here are a few things that I've pinned or found on other pinners' boards:

What do you guys think? Do you have any other suggestions for me? 
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Derby is Here!

Louisville is so alive right now with all of the Kentucky Derby festivities happening this week. One of my favorite things about Louisville in the early spring is seeing all of the local boutiques and department stores putting their "derby hats" on display. I'm not going to Churchill Downs for any races this year, but I have certainly daydreamed about what I might wear if I ever get to attend (NOT in the infield!). So I put together three dream outfits, none of which I can remotely afford, just for fun!

Shoes: Viktor & Rolf and Tibi; Dress: Alice + Olivia; Hat: Giovannio Bridgette

Hat: Luna Boutique; Dress: Rebecca Taylor; Shoes: Sam Edelman and KORS Michael Kors

Dress: Shoshanna; Shoes: Viktor & Rolf and Sigerson Morrison; Hat: Luna Boutique
As you can see, I have a slight shoe problem and could not decide between multiple pairs. In real life, if I had all of these shoes, I wouldn't be able to decide until the last minute which to wear either! Luckily, I don't have to make these kinds of tough decisions on a regular basis. ;)

Happy Oaks Day!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Derby Day as well!
What are your plans for the weekend???
