Pinkie Promise


sheinside jacket, slip dress (worn as top), thrifted belt, tulle skirt (similar), old sandals (similar), camden market purse
After a little at-home coloring fiasco (hint: don't overdo it on the toner or your hair might turn grey but I'll post more details later) I decided to take the plunge and dye my hair pink. I wanted to keep the blonde for a bit longer, but when things went wrong I decided pink was a better alternative than becoming a silver fox. I was tempted to wear a head-to-toe pink outfit to emphasize the new 'do but ultimately decided it was more fun to dress conservatively in contrast. No matter the color, these milkmaid braids are my favorite summer hairstyle and I've worn a variation of this outfit a good half dozen times. This skirt and slip dress as a blouse is one of my default looks; I mix up the belt, shoes, purse, and jacket but the base nearly always remains the same. There's no reason to mess with a good thing...Unless it is my hair I suppose! I'm not bored of messing with that yet.

I ended up with super short hair through some bad circumstances but it ended up being a really good excuse to be more free with my hair (I usually stick to red). Pink was for sure my favourite colour I've been so far. :)

Your hair is beautiful whatever the colour but pink really looks lovely! xx

Your hair looks beautiful and I actually think that it would have been awesome if you had dressed all in pink. I don't comment very often, but I check your blog everyday and I just want you to know what an inspiration you've been to me. You were the very first fashion blog I came across, and I've been following your blog for about nine months. I can't even remember how I happened upon it, all I know is that I stayed, and I'm glad I did. Perhaps if I hadn't stumbled into your blog, now I wouldn't have gotten the courage to start my own. And for that I will always be thankful that I found you.

I love your hair this color, and I really admire your willingness to experiment with it and make the best out of "accidents." I would definitely like to see you pull off a head-to-toe pink outfit while you're still rocking this hair.

This is a great change. I wonder if your coloring is just so universal that you look good in every hair color! Because I don't thing there is a color of clothes that doesn't suit you.

Been following your fashion blog for some time now and I must say you do such a fabulous job. You inspired me to give the pixie cut a try last year and now my hair is teal! Crazy! Also, and this is the real reason I'm commenting, I came across this article the other day and thought of you. Keep on being awesome! http://www.elle.com/life-love/personal-style/personal-essay-on-style-by-chimamanda-ngozi-adichie

I've had the same experience with a toner turning my hair grey. It washes out pretty quickly though. However, I am loving the pink hair on you! Super cute :).

That pastel pink colour is so pretty on you! I love that it has little hints of blonde mixed in.
