In the Red


Hooray for new hair! While I've loved being blonde, I was ready for another overhaul. I had been toying with the idea of red for awhile, and as fall drew closer, it became even more appealing. It just feels right, and I think it will pair nicely with my fall wardrobe.

Top: Forever 21, $10 (similar style) // Jeans: Gap, purchased with gift card (similar style) // Belt: Old Navy (similar style), $8 // Ring: jcpenney, $7 (similar style)

YEAH! So awesome! Love it so much ... I have just dyed my hair red too (although I am scared it is on the orange side of red).

I've always wanted to dye my hair red but don't have the complexion for it, you're lucky that you can be blonde & a redhead. I like the detailing on your top too, I can see this outfit definitely transitioning into autumn.

Wow, I absolutely love it! Red looks amazing on you!

I was toying with red...but then I decided on silver and pale purple. For me, hair is all about the moment - how I feel when I sit in that chair. I never know until then!

Love it! Looks great on you. I'd gone through some of your archives recently, and loved how you look with darker hair. What a great change for fall! Now you're tempting me to dye my hair again - I'm a natural dark blonde/honey sort of color, but I had this dark auburn color for awhile years ago and really enjoyed it. Maybe it's time for a change!

Very cute outfit too. :)

I LOVE the hair!! I've always wondered what I would look like as a red head, but I will never have the nerve to find out. I guess I could always wig it! Love the rust top to accent the hair. You're right, the color transitions effortlessly to fall!

Callie said...

Love, love, love the new color! I thought about daring to go red for a little while, but didn't think I could pull it off. You look lovely as a red head, and I agree, it will be perfect for the fall season. Super cute from head to toe! The jeans are adorable and right on trend for the upcoming season as well.

Ohmigosh Katy, I LOVE it. Looks so phenomenal, and I'm just adoring the '70s vibe of this outfit.

Caitlin said...

I love you new hair! I'm naturally dark blonde and there are definitely some red tones to it. I've been toying with the idea of read hair for almost 8 months now, but haven't had the time, money (or guts) to take the plunge. Did you do it yourself or go to a salon? If you did it yourself what did you use. If you went to a salon did you give them a picture to reference the color you wanted.

As you can see I want to make sure when I take the time and funds to do it I want it to come out right!
