What I wore; a walk in the park

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

The details;
hat - thrifted / stolen from Kevin
dress - thrifted
belt - forever 21
shoes - forever 21
ring - c/o Maie Dae
pin - thrifted
camera bag - JoTotes
 
I dyed my hair! (obviously!) Let me let you in on a little secret...it was supposed to be brown, but apparently brown and purple make green...? Why brown? I was just ready for something different, after almost 4 years of colorful hair I thought I was ready for a break, something low maintenance and less obnoxious. At first when I saw that it didn't turn out brown I was really upset (think tons of tears!) but I absolutely adore it now. Change is good! It's nice to break away from my normal blues and purples for a little while. But I've realized I'm not ready to go to a "natural color" I love my fun colors too much, I'm so so so thankful it didn't turn out as planned. Brown hair will not be making an appearance on this lady aaaaanytime soon!

And since I can't seem to take outfit photos without taking a few jumping pictures here's one!
Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
xoxo

  8. I love how you got the green hair. And I definitely couldn't see you with brown hair because that's just way too normal!

    But I love the outfit and how it all coordinates and you are just too adorable.

    Cute!

  10. I really REALLY love this whole outfit! It's just great. You continue to be cute as a bug's ear! (cause if bugs had ears, that'd be pretty cute, right?)

  11. The green hair is basically awesome. But if I was expecting brown I probably would have cried too. Love that you matched it with the purse :)

  13. you look great! :) And I know what you meant when you wrote about this change with your hair - I'm having my hair pink now for 5 years and I sometimes think about dying it brown but I'm always happy that I'm not doing it cause pink is just my hair color :D

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oooh, I've been eyeballing that camera bag for MONTHS! Do you love it? Maybe I should take the plunge...

  23. First thing I thought when I saw the first picture was «oh my, she dyed her hair again!». I'm so happy it didn't turn brown, I think it wouldn't suit you so well as colourful hair (and that green looks great!), believe me, I have brown hair... no fun! :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had to look twice because of your hair. It was like... "Hang on, what about the purple?" - but I reckon the green suits you well, too. I love green, it's my favourite colour and the more often you dye your hair the more jealous I get because you can absolutely rock anything!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So cute! Green looks so good on you! I love how your hair almost matches the trees in the first photograph.

  44. I have that same camera bag, but in Marigold. I love it. I was torn between the green and the yellow when I bought it.
    I just got the new one, the Betsey,but I'm not going to switch over until it gets cooler out.

  47. Nova, that is exactly what I said about it. It is a really natural green!

  48. Cute! You look like the lime or mint-hued friend of Strawberry Shortcake's that never was! The old Strawberry Shortcake who was awesome when we were kids... not the new one. :)

  50. Love your blog and your style! It's so individual (in a good way aha!)
    Please take a look and my blog and art :) http://stylebutton.blogspot.com/

  51. I'm in the same boat as you! I went from pretty, vibrant colors to a purple-y brown, which I hated and immediately dyed a natural red, which was too light. Then I went to a medium brown and that only lasted about a month before I went back to fun colors.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just really wanted to share how much I love your tattoo. I recently just got my first, nothing as cool as yours though.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love your current hair colour. :3

  54. This green color is so beautiful it seems like it was perfectly planned!
    I love your outfit, it's one of my all time favorite outfit it looks so elegant and appropriate for a walk in the park at the same time (:

  55. That shade of green is one of my favorites and I think it suits you beautifully. Don't you just love happy accidents? And what a lovely location! You're like a modern Jane Austen character on that path.

  59. What a glorious accident - your hair looks awesome! :) Love the brooch and belt - such a cool colour combination :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love your new shade of sage! I went teal over the summer but I dyed my hair dark natural brown for one month so i can be a natural forest nymph and wear yellows, browns, and creams. But next month, I'm returning to my natural color: bright red so I can wear it with really colorful fall outfits I've been planning all year!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Your hair looks really great. You see, everything have it's own reason!

    ReplyDelete
  62. i have to agree with everyone else, i love your green hair :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. You're killing me! the brooch,purse and scalloped belt! AAAaaaah!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love you hair!!!! Such a cute outfit!!!
    But I know why your hair turned green!!!! Some times the box dye from the store has ash in it, and on some people it turns their hair green! It happens to my cousin, she wasn't happy with me when she had green hair and wanted brown! :] But there is the reason :]

    ReplyDelete
  65. little insight on why you ended up with the fun green hair...the brown color must have been a yellow based color and when applied over the purple/blue...they made green! a happy accident indeed lol

    ReplyDelete
  66. Think tons of tears when I was halfway through reading and thought you were going to persist with the brown dye. Phew..obnoxious, pfft, you inspire crazy fun times and mega courage in me and probably everyone who sees you!

    ReplyDelete
  67. WOW !! it's really weird i dreamed about that, last night! and today i come on your blog and i see what?!!! XD

  75. I love the new hair! It's really different. I died my hair brown after having it red for quite some time - to be honest, I am enjoying the low maintenance. I'm too lazy with my hair.

  76. You are so beautiful! I love your style and outfit!<3
