Weekend Wardrobe- Golden!

Top: Forever 21/Similar; Necklace: Er... no idea/Similar; Belt: Anthropologie/Similar; Skirt: Anthropologie/Similar; Flats: J Crew

Well, first things first: I'm a brunette! Yes sir, I dyed my hair on Friday. Guys, I love it so much. The change has been really fun!

The weekend itself was quite nice! I've been off of work on Fridays this summer, so I kicked my weekend off on Thursday night with dinner and drinks. Then on Friday I got my hair done, had tea with a dear friend at the market, and had a belated birthday dinner with another good friend of mine.

Saturday I had an awesome time hanging out with Katie Marie V! We started the day at Buffalo Exchange since she had some clothes to sell, then had some lunch and went thrifting. Katie managed to find two pairs of amazing boots, and I found an awesome fall jacket. It's actually too small, but it has a ton of seam allowance so I'm going to let it out. I'm excited to see how it turns out!

After we finished up thrifting, we went for a walk on the UW campus where these photos were taken. It's a really gorgeous part of town full of lovely, giant old buildings, so it's always fun to check out. Katie went to school at UW so it was fun hearing about her time there. We talked a lot about how neither of us had very traditional college experiences, and also discussed some interesting stuff in regards to the changes we've been noticing in society and the world around us. That Katie is a smart lady, so it was great bending her ear.

Sunday was a day for errands and getting things done. But hey! Those things are important, too.

All in all, I had a fantastic weekend. How about you guys? Did you do anything fun?

Til next time!

  4. i never, ever say this because i know natural blondes are a dying breed, but girl you were meant to be brunette. you look incredible! all of your features have this beautiful warmth to them and i think it's going to make your fall wardrobe pop. i've been thinking about dying my hair a strawberry red color. did you do a box dye or go to the salon?

    okay, enough about hair. UW is stinking gorgeous. such a perfect backdrop for the loveliest autumn outfit! mustard is my favorite fall color.

    i want to head to my local buffalo exchange this week. hopefully i make some cash so i can do some shopping!

    1. Nicole, you are the best. Your comment seriously made my day. I went to the salon to get mine done, but had a conversation with my stylist about upkeep since I can't really afford to go in as often as needed with a standard all over color and she helped me come up with a good solution. I'm super happy I did it!

      Good luck with the clothes selling!

  19. I love your hair so MUCH! It's so perfect for fall and winter, and it compliments your skin beautifully! But your blonder hair was gorgeous, too.
    And this outfit. I want it. It's the perfect mustardy shade. Need. I'm so glad you had a good weekend! Your Saturday in particular sounds dreamy.

    1. Thanks, Kristina! I definitely love the contrast of the darker hair with my fair skin. Aren't mustard colors the best?
