what i wore :: lighter hair

:: head to toe ::
glasses :: Warby Parker
necklace :: c/o Paper Sparrow
dress :: ModCloth
cardigan :: Target
belt :: thrifted
tights :: mall
shoes :: thrifted

So, as I mentioned, I decided to start lightening (and growing) my hair. It will be a kind of long process so expect some silly looking hair for awhile. Well, you can basically always expect silly looking hair from me, but this is a different kind of silly. My hairdresser is pretty awesome and she helped me fix my mullet as well as started the lightening process. I'm pretty excited to get my white hair back eventually.

I am also pretty excited about my new shoes. I don't generally have a lot of shoe luck while thrifting but I was so happy to find these beauties last week. I also found some really awesome red and white heels but the price was a little too high for used shoes in my opinion!

  3. Those shoes are like brad new! Nice find. Cute thrifted shoes are ALWAYS 2 sizes too small for me! You must have a very understanding hairdresser, mine was upset when I wanted to lighten from red... I think he may have had a nervous breakdown if mine was black! Needless to say I lost the argument, aside from a few 'slices' of lightness! Yours looks cute anyway, even though it a work in progress! Isn't indecisiveness fun?!

  13. You look so gorgeous in these pictures! Both your hair, and your outfit are so pretty. Not to mention, your living room! I am completely smitten. It seems so bright and cheerful!

    I really loved your white hair, and pink, but I think your hair looks so so beautiful like this too!

  18. I love your hair when it's white!

  19. I love the curl and wave in there. and the color is awesome!! If i could change hair with anyone, it would be you... but then you'd be stuck with mine so i dont think you'd make the trade!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You look great!

    That dress is beautiful! Such a splendid print. =)
    And, I like that cardigan paired with it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That haircut looks adorable, not weird at all! I finally found my first hairdresser who doesn't make me look weird when I leave her chair, mullet or not. Great hairdressers are a rare breed, I think.

  22. Very cute outfit and I actually really like your hair that shade -- it's very soft and warm! :)

  23. Just curious.. How much is too much for used shoes?!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha! Depends on the person, the awesomeness of the shoe and the condition of the shoe in my opinion. There was a pretty awesome pair of red & white heels but there was quite a bit of ripping/peeling on the heel and they were $15. It was the condition + the price that turned me off.

      Delete
  24. Your dress and shoes are adorable! I know how you feel, cute thrifted shoes are always hard for me to find in my area. Since I have a very average size foot, I feel like everyone else gets them before I can.

    On another note, I love this auburn hair on you! I love the crazy colors too, but this looks very natural and warm on you. Although I might be biased, because this is so close to my normal hair color.

  25. I love your hair and I think that this is one of my favorite looks from you! (although the red dress with the blue tights was pretty epic...)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your hair looks awesome...almost like a wig, but in a its-set-so-perfectly wig way, not a weird wig way. Got it? Haha. I also love that dress and your curtains which could be completely interchangeable.

    When are you coming to Peterborough again? Oh & are you coming to Blog Podium? Even though it's on your bday...promise we'll celebrate that night!

    1. haha! I kind of feel like it looks like a wig but not in a good way!
      I think I'll be in Peterborough again at the end of April. And I will probably come to the Blog Podium thing. As long as I get a vegan cupcake sometime during the day!!

  33. Oh cute, you look like you stepped out of the 1940s or something. I love how your dress matches your curtains! hehe, you could stand in front of it and then jump out and scare your cats.

    oh and by the way i love seeing how you have put up the hair bow illustration. it looks great! thanks ;)

  44. It's good you are doing gradual lightening. I had long, black hair in December that I wanted to lighten and had a stylist turn it soda pop orange because he didn't know what he was doing. I cut it short and am slathering it in oils and conditioner until it grows out again!

    ReplyDelete
  45. ohh I actually really like the lighter hair! Being a pink head myself I'm so used to colorful candy hair... it feels "normal" to me. So the color you have now actually stands out...haha.

    You are as adorbs as ever! :)

Your outfit posts alway make me so envious of your wardrobe ;) and your self portrait skills!

  60. Your hair looks adorable! The colour is really nice. With a professional's help, I'm sure you can get back to your white hair quickly. Your hair is already quite a bit lighter. Also, that's a great dress!

  61. For some reason I really love every outfit of yours that involves purple tights.

  62. I actually think that colour is BEAUTIFUL! on you, even if it's just an in between stage colour.
    I'm trying to get mine back to white blonde again too (well it's pink now, but I used it to cover a little of the red residue)..the red dye stained it, but I'll get there...hopefully! ;)

  65. Major cuteness! Your hair looks incredible, I know this is only a transitional colour, but I really like it as it is. In the 3rd picture from the top you really remind me of Kristen Bell, back in the Veronica Mars days. Also, that dress is magical.
