269.



Top and Jean Jacket Old Navy (jean jacket similar) | Skirt Dorothy Perkins (similar) | Belt Thrifted | Bag Vintage, Dooney and Bourke | Boater Shoes Kohl's (similar)

To explain my lack of posts this week, all I can say is that I was sick fighting off a nasty cold I got after I went to the beach two weeks ago. This is the outfit I wore to celebrate finally being cold-free! It feels nice to breathe properly and not be hacking and coughing, taking medication constantly and blowing your nose all the time! Yes, fresh air! :)






I shopped in my closet a bit to find these goods. This skirt I was going to sell because I hadn't worn it in  months, but after re-evaluating it, I kept it. My yellow top I barely wear because I don't have many things that go with yellow that are bottoms. I also hadn't worn this denim jacket since I bought it. Although it hasn't been pictured in a while, these flats are becoming a favourite of mine because they go with a lot of things and are so comfortable! I wish I could love heels as much as the next fashionista (which I'm not ha ha) but for my feet, I need comfort above all. :P

One more thing before I end this blog post... but don'tcha hate it when your hair dye doesn't stay?! So annoyed looking at my pictures and seeing that the stubborn red dye hasn't gone, despite trying to dye my hair black! I've read the instructions and followed it to a T, but I guess I'm not experienced in dyeing my hair... and I'm in no position to dye my hair again after this! I've processed my hair so much from dyeing it red in the Spring (twice actually, once by box dye which failed, then salon), then rebonding it, then sloppily dyeing it black (and failing) again! Blah! Anyways...

Until next time,

Gazel

  1. I love that skirt and it looks fab with the yellow :) Denim jackets are a wardrobe essential in my opinion!

  4. I actually like the bits of red in your hair like this! You know, the color may not be staying because it may be overprocessed, and your hair is probably too porous to absorb the dye. Wait a month or two before dyeing it again. In the meantime, enjoy the lovely color you have!

  5. I'm having the same problem with my hair dye! It's been red a few times and then about 3 months ago I dyed it back to a dark brown. It stayed that way for about a week and then the red popped up. It is annoying! I just don't have the finance for a salon, so all I got is at home dye.

    Your yellow top & floral skirt is one of the prettiest combinations I've seen in awhile! A few months ago, in a fit of frustration, I got rid of the only 2 yellow tops I owned. I pretty much regret it everyday. Especially when I come across looks like this that I could try!
