I'm still going through a black and white obsession. I only half jokingly told Kevin the other day when I was wearing this that I wanted to dump out my closet and only have black and white clothing. I would really get sick of it after a short amount of time because no matter what colorful things will always have a special place in my heart but it's still fun to daydream about it. I really don't own that much black clothing (cat hair shows!) or white clothing for that matter (I'm a chronic spiller of things, but mostly only when wearing white!) so I've been wearing this outfit, this one and this one like crazy lately. (That dress especially, I've even considered buying a second so I'll have a spare when I inevitably wear that one out.)

This is my new hair! Blue, purple and pink. In these photos you really can't see the definition between the purple and pink, but in person it pops! I also have some pink underneath my bangs which looks super neat and the blue runs into it while I shower so it's turning a pretty purple. I really dig it. As much as I liked having four colors and as awesome as I thought the green looked this is what I really, really feel comfortable in. It's my natural color.

Well, I hope you all have a fabulous day. I'm going to get back to work. I have a craaaazy amount of pictures that need sorted through. I've been putting it off for way too long and I'm ready to just get it done. Plus it's supposed to storm today and I really love popping in one of my favorite movies, cuddling up under a blanket with a kitty and looking through pictures while it storms.

  1. Your brooch is too cute to be true :)

    I need to say it: you have a super pretty face. Hope you're smiling like that everyday because it's a pleasure to see it ^ ^

  2. I love that you called this your natural colour :). It does suit you! And I know what you mean about all black and white. There's something so classic about it, and I feel like without any colours in the mix, you can really mix and match prints to your hearts content!

  3. Love the blog! I found it when googleing nail polish ideas :3 I love your sense of style, it is so original compared to all those other fashion blogs out there.

  4. I love black and white too, but can't wear them too often for exactly the same reasons! I don't know why I spill things more when I wear white, but it sucks! x
