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.
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.
