Outfit of the Week: Cut Your Hair

Outfit of the Week: Cut Your Hair

Thanks for being so sweet last week! I just adore y'all. While I believe I'm authentic on the blog (but still retain privacy), it's not always perfect peaches around here. Yet I don't want to be the blog that complains about everything/uses my blog constantly as a vent session. So it was nice to just let it all out and not apologize for it.

One thing I will apologize for is my hair. It's the one splurge, the one thing I'm vain about. And I've been keeping pics of myself far away from the blog lately. When my beloved stylist quit, and then her replacement quit, I was in quite a pickle. I decided to dye my brown, highlighted hair. I'd never done it myself before, sans the occasional root touch up or glaze. I had to use the whole box. And it came out black with unintentional ombre on the ends. My grays stayed (I left it on longer than the directions stated). It looked awful. My boss said it looked "witchy" (it did). But thanks to Twitter reccs, I am madly in love with Dada Salon! Yay!
When, Where, Why: Thursday, Dada Salon, to get color and cut my hair
Heard: Cut Your Hair, Pavement (I will not apologize of my love for 90s alternative)
Cut Your Hair by Pavement on Grooveshark
Wore:

  • Gingham shirt from Old Navy $5 on clearance
  • White sweater from Target, $14 (mine isn't ribbed but I couldn't find a pic)
  • Skinny jeans (rolled up) from Charlotte Russe, $20
  • Ballet flats from H&M, $12
  • Hannah Necklace, gift from GS Lillian
  • Bouncy Blush from Maybelline, $3 (with coupon, regularly $8)
It's impossible for me to do a whole shot of myself!
Was this before or after? Guess! 

Have an amazing weekend!




{edit: I just learned my beloved Great Grandmother, Sugar, passed away at 95. She was truly a remarkable, amazing lady. I'm heartbroken and happy, if that makes any sense. I'll be taking the next week off from the blog. If you would like to send me a Guest Post, I'd be grateful. Email me your post if you'd like. Thank you for your thoughts, patience, and prayers. Love, Elle}

  3. I just had a serious hair problem very similar. I was trying to dye it back to blonde without stripping it, stupid, I know. So now my roots have a nice ombre thing going on too. I've got to go to a professional soon!
