I had a major event at work this week so blogging has taken a backseat---but I still wanted to do a little post for the weekend.
First, let’s talk about my hair. Some of you may remember that the last time I had my hair colored, I went back to add more lowlights. This time around, my blonde pulled way too yellow and the highlights were not distributed evenly, and to be honest, my hair just looked a little over-processed. I’m not sure how it happened, because my colorist is awesome, but sometimes these things just happen.
Basically, my hair looked way too high contrast. I favor a blended look so I went back this Friday to have more lowlights added to break up the blonde and to have my blonde toned down to a softer color. My colorist said that from now on we will use color instead of bleach to do my highlights.
Here is what I mean when I say the highlights were yellow:
PHEW! The next time I have my hair done, I am really looking to get a look like Kate Beckinsale’s. I don’t want to go as dark as her on the top, because my natural color is lighter than hers, but I love the overall look of the soft, blended highlights poking out from underneath and on the sides (with way less of them focused at the top/crown/roots)

Seriously Kate, can we all just have your hair?
Next, I wanted to share some fitting room photos from my recent shopping trip to Zara and J.Crew.
First, this gorgeous paisley No. 2 pencil skirt from J.Crew. I loved it, but for $148, I’m waiting for a sale. It fits just like the wool version:
Then I tried on some tops at Zara
(I got the second lilac tee-featured in today’s haul video and also the blue paisley tunic)
I liked the minty top above, but I wanted something even longer. I still have a great minty tank from Banana Republic from last season that I plan to wear a lot this spring/summer.
What else am I focusing on this week? Working on drafting ideas for my new blog design:
and H and I are about to enjoy delicious Five Guys burgers for dinner (I get mine without the bun, less guilt and I don’t miss the bread at all!)
What could be better?
