It’s a rainy day

Blazer: H&M (similar here, and here at ASOS)

Shirt: Old Navy (similar here and here at J.Crew on sale)

Wide Leg Denim: Gap (similar here, here and here)

Wedges: (can’t see but they’re Simply Vera Wang) (almost identical) (other option)

Belt: Gap (similar here and at J.Crew on sale)

Necklace: NY&Co. (similar and a cool option)

Watch: Michael Kors (buy)

Last week my hair just looked like a hot mess. The color I had done few months ago faded and my roots looked…bad. My hair stylist just had a baby so I had to come to my own rescue. I bought a light golden brown knowing it won’t turn out that way but at least it won’t be super dark and most importantly rest of my hair will match my roots.  I’m happy with the results…until it fades again (I didn’t use permanent color).

If I had highlights I would’ve been in major trouble. Glad I went dark for Fall/Winter.

Do you ever color your own hair?

    I used to dye my own hair when I was younger. Remember Sun In? LOL. I was an avid user. hahaha. Gone are those days tho. I played a lot with color in my early twenties. I had the best hair stylist, but she passed away. She was a great friend and was so taletned. I haven't really played with color since her passing tho. On a sartorial note, I love that jacket. The elbow patches are super rad!Swing by to enter my Shabby Apple Giveaway. The perfect tulle skirt, just in time for the holidays!!xx Love & Aloha

    That jacket is so cute! It fits well, and the little elbow patches are a fun touch. I've never colored my own hair, and I don't think I could! My hair holds a lot of orange tones, so I fear I would turn it bright orange! Luckily, my hair is an all over dark color, so I don't worry about roots. It's naturally pretty dark, but I have my fiance's sister dye it even darker 🙂 You did a great job on yours!

    I have never colored my hair BUT I did just get a haircut and used one of your pictures to get your hair style. It came out awesome! I love it, but I struggle to recreate your style at home. How do you curl your hair like that?

    Thank you on your sweet comments ladies. @Cait – Aw, I'm so happy to hear that. Glad you like it :)I use a 1.5 inch curling iron (but I think I might get one that's .25 smaller). I curl away from my face. I found a youtube video that I'll post, the girl does it pretty much the same way I do (since I'm not ready to make a video myself 🙂

    I love those pants! Cute style! I've been taking some of your layering ideas and wearing them to work; it helps to put an extra bounce in my step each morning instead of just throwing one shirt one and not feeling stylish. You've inspired me to bring a little more "sexy" into my wardrobe!-Kimberly {}

    Literally was in H&M last night, passed over the blazer then inspiration struck and I recalled this post and I definitely purchased it 🙂 We have a holiday party tomorrow night, was thinking skinnies, nude pumps with a white tee like you have there. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Love the outfit but the best bit is how you give the alternative to give options… Must take time and research. Such attention to detail is noted and appreciated!K
