From Head to Ro – May 26, 2017 Dress Season is Open

Hello lovelies. It’s been a bit of a rough week, hasn’t it? I am grateful for friends who talk on the phone and say I love you when we’re done, and the ones who write me into commercials for sewing machines, and the ones who assure me I’m not a bad person because I’ve spent more money than I intended to. Thank you for letting me be me and loving me just the same.

I’m pleased to say that the weather has improved significantly and dress season is open. I wore two beautiful outfits that I failed to document, but many other things take priority over snapping pictures and writing about my clothes.

Today I am wearing the sweetest dress from Simons via Mama Ro. It’s off the shoulder, it has buttons down the front, it has a tie, it has embroidery, it’s midi length, it’s got stripes. It sounds like it has a lot going on, but this dress is understated.

I just love the details of this dress.

I’ve paired it with a pair of strappy, cognac, leather sandals from Clarks, a gift from Papa Ro a few years ago. I kind of love that I’m wearing an outfit from my parents.

Today is also the last day that I will be a redhead. Tomorrow morning I’ll be returning to life as a brunette. I loved having red hair, but I hated the maintenance and the financial burden of keeping it looking nice. Red hair fades to a really ugly colour very quickly. Without an expensive colour deposit shampoo, conditioner, and a pigment wash every couple of weeks, my hair looked magenta and I started to dread washing my hair because it meant using up product, and I really didn’t want to buy any more. I am looking forward to using light towels without leaving pink streaks everywhere. Going back to brunette isn’t going to cost less than staying red for another cycle, but this is the start of winding down expensive, finicky hair. It will be so nice to wash my hair without mentally rationing how much shampoo I have left.
