I Have Pastel Hair!

I could resist the temptation no longer; I now have pastel hair! I have had an incredible amount of hair angst lately, and decided I had to either put in some colour or I would chop it into a bob. I love my new lavender locks; it is wonderful to have a bright colour to get me through the winter! I was definitely seeking inspiration from Abbey Lee Kershaw, I absolutely love her with pastel hair!

I wore a vintage nautical themed pair of dungarees with a 1980s floral embroidered jersey. The sun peeked it’s head out from behind the clouds and it was a truly wonderful afternoon – I love when it is warm enough to wear a playsuit!

  1. Oh wow! The new hair is amazing. I wish I could do something like that with mine, but the amount of bleach needed would probably kill me!

  2. The new hair looks badass. I’ve been telling myself I’m either going to go icy blue or pink one of these days but I get so nervous about what other people would say :( I’m such a wimp…

  7. Oooh, I love your purple tips! Whenever I get bored with my hair, one of my go-to changes is putting purple streaks in it! Your hair is the perfect lightness for it too! :)

  16. OMG. LOVE IT. I’ve wanted to do this to my hair for a while. Then I dyed it dark brown, so I don’t think it would have the same effect as it would have if I were a blonde. Anyway, your hair looks GREAT. Turned out fantastic. I like you.

  22. Your hair is so cool! And your pictures are to die for. They look like a series of photos on Tumblr or something. So pretty!!

    I love this combination- the striped romper with the floral top look so pretty together as the floral top softens the outfit. And I was just looking back at your decorated china- you are so talented! Following you on Bloglovin! xx

  34. Great hair…don’t cut it into a bob. Let it grow and if you want it short, put it in a pony. I get the same hair angst….wanna chop it off every May before the heat hits New Jersey.. Dawn Suitcase Vignettte xo

  36. LOVE the new hair, it’s perfect! I tried to add some pale pale pink to mine but it faded so fast. I went back to brown and decided to cut heavy bangs instead haha..I had to do something! It threw me off when you said winter..then I realized you’re on the other side of the world haha
