you know when your hair feels a bit dull colour-wise and it needs a bit of a boost? that’s how i’ve been feeling about my hair lately. it’s a dark brown with some red undertones and the odd blonde hair (i was naturally blonde until 5 or so).
so, over the weekend i dyed it. i didn’t want a total colour change, but wanted to boost the red a bit. i wanted more of a coppery/auburn red, and this turned out more ‘red red’ than i wanted, but i still like it. subtle, but just a bit more uplifting.
i love this little wreath, found it in a charity shop a couple of years ago, and i always thought it looked especially good on this golden yellow dress, so it’s pretty much stayed there.
i never thought before of wearing a purple/magenta colour with gold/yellow, but i really like how it looks! seeing as i’m not a ‘yellow’ person,i wouldn’t have normally gone for this colour dress but i’ve always liked it. also, i don’t know why these photos look less saturated than they’re meant to, but they still work ..right?
i realise after taking these photos it’s probably not the most photogenic of dresses (and it definitely fit me a bit nicer when i was slimmer) but i think maybe that’s partly in my mind too. it’s kind of hard to not be judgemental about pictures of yourself, isn’t it?
