Sort Of A Repeat

I completely forgot that I wore an almost identical outfit about two weeks ago.  Missy actually noticed before I did.  This is what I wore to church yesterday:

This outfit should be called "How the plus size girl shops at Target."  Except for the tank, it's all Target! My purple wrap Merona for Target dress;  I will cry when this thing either rips or I grow out of it.  Black Walmart tank, Target jewelry and Target shoes.

These dresses make me feel pulled together.  This one is a size 1x.  My sister bought me the bag for my birthday, it is by a company called "thirty-one."  I put my Bible stuff in it.  Just big enough for my Bible, study guide, notebook, wallet and cell phone.

My hair is driving me nuts right now.  I hate it.  But this is the stage where I always hate it.  I hate hair next to my chin.  To me, that's the widest part of my face.  I'm trying so hard not to shave my head right now.
I told Mr. R I wouldn't cut my hair.  But oh my WORD I hate my hair right now.  I know the weather has a lot to do with it.  The humidity drives me crazy.  It's greasy near the roots, and dry at the ends.  It is both frizzy and flat.  Unfortunately, I live in a swamp which means I can't even look forward to autumn...we don't have autumn.  It will be 85-100% humidity until October, maybe November.  I don't know if I can last this long with awful hair.  You see, I totally relate to Jo from Little Women, who felt like she was not all that pretty except that she had great hair.  Well, I kind of feel the same way.  My hair CAN be awesome.  But it's not right now, and it's making me SAD.  Plus, all I ever do is throw it up in a bun or ponytail.  It's boring!  I am feeling stir crazy wearing this mop of hair!  I want a change, yet I know I won't keep up with a complicated hairstyle.  More than 10-15 minutes of styling and I am DONE.  I don't like product, as it makes my scalp break out.  What is a girl to do?

I have a few thoughts.  You guys tell me which one you like:
Kelly Clarkson!  Cute, right?  Longer in the front, shorter in the back, she has straight hair and a round face like I do.
I don't know who this chick is, but I like her hair.  My hair will actually flip that way.  Again, another person with a round face and straight hair.

Love Rihanna!  She does some crazy hair, but this is one of my favorites.
Or should I just let it grow super long again?

Hey Sarah,

I don't know whether it is just me, but the pics don't load completely :-(, so I can't give my choice yet. But girl, if you are ready for a change go for it :-)
