WTF hair


Turns out I dyed my own hair last night. Also turns out, I should not dye my own hair! Admittedly, the color looks better in the sunlight, but it turned out way darker than I had intended. I wanted it to be a rich chocolate brown, and instead it looks almost black! I spent a while last night wailing about how I'm a goth kid now, ignoring Greg's assurance that it looked fine. I mean, I love goth kids, and emos, and whoever else dyes their hair black. It's just not my style. I feel like a poseur now. Oh well, hopefully it will lighten in the summer sun. The Portland sun... yes.

I'm wearing: Old Navy tunic, Target cami and flats, vintage belt, thrifted denim skirt, F21 necklace, lame self-dyed hair.

I don't feel very confident about today's outfit, either. It's so hot out that I figured I'd try wearing something "summery", which is definitely not my forte when it comes to getting dressed. I absolutely loathe hot weather, the sun, bare legs, bare arms, and sweating. So needless to say, I don't enjoy having to get dressed for these things! Ugh. If I could wear sweaters and black tights all year long it wouldn't be enough.

That said, I do like this belt. Er. Yep!

I think your hair colour looks great, it brings out the fairness of your skin. Well, fret not, it fades after a few washes ;)
And loving that necklace btw.

Your hair looks great Meg! You always look super cute. I'm really jealous of your stylish ways. I wish I had that strong of a sense of style. BTW, in your last post, how did you do your hair like that? All up in a super cute bun thing?

Meg said...

Aww, thank you Shaun! That's really sweet of you. <3 But you shouldn't be jealous! Just wear everything confidently; you're adorable, always.

Haha thanks about my hair, I was actually having a super bad hair day yesterday! But it was kinda dirty so I pulled it all back really tight at the crown of my head, twirled it around in a twist, then twisted that around in a bun and tied a hairtie around it a couple times. My greasy hair prevented most flyaways. :P Hope that is helpful? <3

Your hair is adorable. And how can you think you look like a nerd? Your blog makes me almost wish that I knew how to dress myself in something *other* than shorts and a t-shirt.

Teresa said...

I think your hair looks just fine! In fact, I think it looks lovely! I don't think it looks dark or gothic at all! Maybe you just need some time to get used to it. Trust me. Your hair looks great! :)
