what i wore > new 'do

*pretend my nails aren't chipping! the colours match my dress so well!*
head to toe:
sunnies - some variety store in Jasper, Alberta
dress - vintage via The Paraders
belt - thrifted
cardigan - H&M
shoes - Blowfish

I am so crazy in love with my new bright pink hair! I loved the pastel pink but 1. it faded really quickly and 2. I only really liked wearing white while I had it. I felt like I was having a hard time matching my clothes to my hair. Maybe that is just me being crazy. Either way, I was ready for a change and I am really excited about this new colour!

See my brooch? This is one of two brooches that I received from the lovely Jacquie from Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree. I love them both and you will definitely be seeing the other one soon. Isn't this one adorable? I love the little patchwork pieces and the hearts make it extra sweet.

I hope everyone is having a great day!

  10. oh that is so lovely!! i think you should do purple next ;) this dress is great, i love the colours! is that your new tattoo? i don't think i actually ever saw a 'reveal' photo from when you got it! it's adorable. i have a red heart as well and it's one of my faves...except when people ask "is that real" (there's no black outline so i GUESS it looks like sharpie marker, haha...but c'mon people, i'm 25 and have 7 other tattoos, why would i sharpie this on everyday? lol.

  23. pink looks great on you!!!!
    I used to have my hair purple. I LOVED it. I'm thinking about getting it purple again since at least a year now. Looking at you in fabulous pink definitely leads me to the conclusion of wanting purple again. :)
    And I SO know the problem of not finding clothes fitting to the hair. Purple is not the greatest color to mach my outfits.

    I just did a history of hair on my blog and seeing your pictures shows me that I so so so have to start taking better pictures....thanks ^^
