Changing It Up

The seasons are changing and so is my hair. (Ha!) I’ve been a blonde for about 10 years, until this week. My good friend and stylist over at Beyond Beautiful Salon talked me into trying something different this time, and I’m sure glad she did. It was time for a change, my hair was getting rather see-through and damaged. I’m loving being a brunette, my hair seems so much thicker and shinier, but what do you think? Let me know in the comments.


Sorry, these photos are more centered on my hair (and how excited I am to have bought a pumpkin, haha). I do, however, have a couple pieces of my outfit I’d like to talk about. (There’s also a blooper photo at the end of the post I felt the world should see.)



Shop the look:

I must confess, I have a sick addiction to buying coats… which is terrible because we are constantly moving around, and coats do take up a lot of space in a suitcase. While looking for the URL to this coat on Maurices’ website I’ve already found another coat from there I need…someone help. I need an intervention (or someone could just buy this coat for me, haha)!

But back to my coat in the pictures…I bought this one years ago at Maurices, and it is one of my all-time favorites. I love the buttons and little ruffles on the bottom. Some people think I’m nuts for wearing a white coat, but this coat has not met a stain that a good spin in the washing machine couldn’t fix. This coat goes with everything, but it’s not quite warm enough to wear in the dead of winter in Wisconsin (don’t worry, I have other coats for that).

I love these fall-looking scarf and earrings, as well. This scarf is an infinity scarf and always looks/lays nicely. I like to think these colors go with my hair better now, too. However, this scarf is a bit scratchy. I probably won’t be wearing a V-neck with it again.

As for my earrings, these are my favorite purchase from our trip to Rome. (I also have a necklace that matches them.) I wish I could remember the name of the shop my husband bought them from, but my memory is failing me. I do remember it was in the Trastevere neighborhood.

The Most Beautiful Picture Ever

The wind was not working in my favor, and neither were my facial expressions. Haha!

  1. Legally blonde or not don’t matter if you look good and feel great then the truth will come out. You could try red and be firey. Let’s see

    1. Thank you so much, Patty! I’m liking it for a change! I don’t think I’ll be going back to blonde anytime soon.
