Purple Hair + Orange Dress





I had a startling amount of free time on Saturday, which resulted in a slightly new 'do. No big surprises here, and if you follow me on instagram, you've already seen the sneak peek. Mom was my partner-in-crime for this haircolor endeavor, and aren't you impressed by the great job she did? I love it--it feels very 'me'. This is probably my second favorite haircolor after dark brown.

What's funny to me is that the last time I featured this dress on the blog, my hair was just about exactly the same color, only significantly shorter. Now is just about the time when I'd normally be chopping all my hair off again, but I did just get a curling iron for my birthday so I think that will motivate me to let it keep growing for a little while. That, and the ability to throw it all in a ponytail on these tropically hot days is very enticing. I'm actually thinking of writing a blog post about how to do an awesome ponytail...because ponytails always seem to get kind of a bad rap in the hairstyles department, maybe just because they are easy, but they have the potential to look pretty awesome.

On this day, I trained some teenagers in the perfect orange-peeling technique, which seemed appropriate, given the shade of the dress.

So yeah, my weekend was characterized by haircolor and oranges - what was your weekend like?

  2. Your hair did turn out smashing. I'm always amazed when people manage to get the colour so vibrant.

    The stand out for me in your outfit is the shoes, and those laces.

  5. The purple looks great on you! It's such a pretty shade. I wish I could pull off coloured hair. I am however really getting into orange, so that dress is right up my alley. I think the contrasting panel is genius, and I also think we should try to match activities to clothes at all times.
