what i wore :: collars and glasses

:: head to toe ::
glasses :: c/o Tumbleweeds
dress :: Gourd Garden Dress via ModCloth
cardigan :: H&M
belt :: thrifted
tights :: mall
boots :: thrifted

I am pretty crazy about my new Tumbleweeds glasses. Right now they just have phoney baloney lenses in them but I'm thinking of getting my prescription put in so that I can wear them for realsies. 

I hardly ever wear these tights but I really love them. I guess I just feel like they are too busy to wear with most things. I don't remember where I picked them up though! Oh well, I love them with this outfit.

Oh, ya, don't mind that it looks like I'm balding in that top photo. Obviously my natural colour (roots) lightened a bit quicker than the black so it looks a little cookoo bananas. (anyone know what that is from?) I can deal with it for a while as long as I keep imagining myself with white hair again.

  1. You are working that outfit... the glasses are wonderful. I had the laser surgery nearly a year ago now & it is times like this when I see fun glasses I miss mine (a little bit anyway).

  2. Oh, these colour combination is really unusual for you, isn´t it? But it looks good especially to your hair and the glases.

    I wish you and your family Happy Easter!

    1. It is! I am usually pretty bright so this is very toned down for me. Gotta mix it up once in a while ;)

  6. This outfit is adorable. I need a new pair of glasses ... and I've been dying to wear my cowboy boots, but I want a cute yellow dress and vintage belt to pair them with! Maybe I will buy the same ModCloth dress!

    1. I really do love this dress. I find many excuses to wear it. This time it was "it's probably going to warm up soon so I better wear this long sleeved dress while I still can".

    Feeling like a total nerd, but was that a Degrassi reference? Haha!

    1. Yeah, definitely not a hot weather dress. Long sleeves and the fabric is not the type that I would want to wear on a warm day!

  23. Wow, the brownish look looks so good on you! Your hair is so nice in this colour!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your haircut is really cute! Love the bangs :) I know what you mean about white hair...Im naturally blond, but get highlights and Im always saying 'blonder! blonder!!! I want platinum hair' haha! It never works out for me though.

  31. Super cute outfit (even if you're balding on top), and the tights definitely aren't too busy (especially with how you paired them). Also, I'm in love with how you framed those pieces on your wall. Very smart!

  37. I love that dress color and it all looks great on you, I have some similar tights that I am now tempted to bust out!!! Love it!

  38. Theres a section of your hair called the "hot zone" which is 1" to 2" out from the scalp. The heat from your head caused the color to process faster than the rest of your hair that didn't have the heat.

  39. goodness gracious, I love the texture of those glasses!
    And this yellow!
    Wonderful, wonderful!
