Enjoying an afternoon out in sunny Los Angeles on Wedenesday (November 7), Leighton Meester proudly showed off an adorable, new hairdo.

Stylishly dressed in a short, flower printed dress, the “Gossip Girl” gal sported a short bob cut as she took care of some errands and lunched with a guy friend.

As for the shorter coif, the 26-year-old – whose long locks became famously tied to Blair Waldorf character – didn’t waste any time making the change once wrapping up the CW drama’s final season.

“I chopped off my hair after ‘Gossip Girl’ wrapped… My long, wavy hair got a lot of mileage, so it was time for a change,” Meester explained.
