I plan on writing a longer post about my total hair transformation from having raspberry red hair to being bright blonde very soon, but for now I just wanted to share these two photos from the past two days.
The top photo is my hair on Tuesday before heading to Arrojo to see my colorist Francesca. My roots were growing out and I felt like the blonde was looking a little brassy, so I wanted to get a refresh. We decided to do more highlights and tone it so that the blonde was on the cooler side, but still maintain some interesting dimension by working in my natural light brown throughout the highlights. She worked her magic to create the final product below, which was taken yesterday, and I am so happy with how my hair turned out! I highly recommend you guys going to see Francesca at the Williamsburg location if you live locally – she’s pretty freaking awesome.
I am flying to Texas today for my dear friend and old roommate’s wedding so I’m signing off a bit early this week, but I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend with whatever you have planned! xo
Lately I’ve noticed that instead of buying new clothing, I’ve been splurging a bit more on nicer home accessories, such as bougie candles and stylish tchotchkes. Don’t get me wrong, I really don’t discriminate when it comes to candles as long as they don’t give me a headache and aren’t too overpowering. But there is something special about treating myself to a candle (or perfume) from Diptyque or Le Labo, that brings me joy. Maybe it’s because it feels like an affordable way to indulge in a guilty pleasure, or maybe it’s because there is something therapeutic and calming about lighting an amazing smelling candle at the end of the day. Who knows?! Regardless, life is short, so I say…treat yo’self! And with that said, I give you eight of my current favorite bougie candles worth buying. xo
Lately I’ve been living in overalls, and in light of my two most recent posts (click here and here), I thought it would be fun to dig up past posts to how I styled these same black overalls over the years. The funny thing is, I am wearing a different striped top in each of these looks, one year apart, unplanned of course. I guess I am a creature of habit…
Do you guys ever get confused on exactly how you’re supposed to style those blouses with the ties that hang down (also known as pussy bow blouses)? I think they are meant to literally be tied in a bow, but I have never felt like that look fit my style, so I decided to tweak it a bit…
Last week I created three outfits all based around one black silk neckerchief. I kept things simple by reusing a couple of the same pieces (such as the red pumps and olive green chinos) and then mixed in different tops and bottoms.
Takeaway tip: Even though the button down shirts I’m wearing in look two and three are the same style, because they are a different color, it gives each outfit a slightly different feel, but in an effortless way. This is a simple way to remix and get some great use out of your favorite accessories and clothing.
