Call it a Spring Awakening if you will but yesterday, while sitting in my hair stylists’ chair and surfing through Google for images of Ashley Tisdale (ok, cat’s out of the bag she’s my second favorite blonde) I was inspired by a picture of her with darker locks and I decided to go a darker shade of blonde. After all was said and done (which by the way the process to go darker is soooo much easier than going lighter, no foils enough said) my blonde locks had mostly disappeared and were replaced with a very light shade of brown. This is actually a little closer to my natural color, and I’ve been wanting to do something different with my hair for awhile. I wasn’t going to let time be the only thing to change this week!
For reasons unknown to me, after I get my hair done, I instantly want a new wardrobe to go with it. Unlike my usual shopping excursions which take me to boutiques, South Coast or Fashion Island, this shopping trip took me to the Temecula Promenade. I heard H&M was having a sale and I needed some replacement items from Mac so really it was like the fashion universe was all but screaming at me to go. Sadly the sale racks had already been picked over at H&M so I ventured over to Forever 21 where I always know I can find something that’s cute and affordable. While I did invest in a few pieces I did notice a trend occurring. I not only went back to darker roots with my hair, but I went back to my all time favorite color, pink. Yes, almost everything I bought yesterday screamed pink, sparkly and girly. Don’t get me wrong, I love every article that exists in my closet. But because of color restrictions at work black and white have taken over my closet. It was high time I put my signature color back where it belongs.
