A New Hue

DSC_7214
I feel so refreshed with this new hair color! i had been contemplating this change for a while now and of course I thought about how it would be strange for me to be a redhead with a blonde blog name, but oh well! The name isn’t changing! I really just wasn’t feeling pretty and I think it had a lot to do with having a hair color that wasn’t so flattering on me. I researched best hair colors for my skin tone and ultimately decided to channel Isla Fisher. I went to an experienced colorist, Alison, at Gro Salon in the Bucktown neighborhood in Chicago. We did a short consultation, I showed her some photos of red hair and she agreed this would suit me!
I had every intention of wearing this outfit styled around the Boy Meets Girl tee I received out this past Saturday night. Unfortunately, the weather once again dictated a more practical and weather appropriate outfit. So I’ll be wearing this out on the weekend in the next couple weeks! I picked up these mesh leggings last summer and can’t wait to pair them with long tees all summer long.

    The red hair looks amazing on you. I changed my hair colour few weeks ago too, but Iยดm quite unhappy with it…

    The red really fits the shoe colour ๐Ÿ˜€

    oh fun! I was totally shocked when I clicked over here. Wasn't sure if it was real at first but I think it looks great. May must be a month for blondes going red cuz I dyed mine 2 weeks ago.
    Change is good though and I'm sure you'll be doing more experimentation down the line, hair dying is addictive.

    You rock the red hair. It looks totally natural. I want to do that with my hair someday. Red hair is so feisty-looking, I love it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Speaking of great colors, holy-crap-your-shoes! Those are amazing.
