Weekend Wardrobe

Dress: Vintage/Similar; Hair Bow: DIY; Necklace: Oh my gosh, I have no idea! I've had it for years/Similar; Belt: Anthropologie/Similar; Shoes: ModCloth

Hey guys! I hope you all got to have a nice long weekend! I was actually on staycation all last week, which was pretty great. As nice as it was to be off last week, though, I did have some sad times. One of my dearest friends flew out of Seattle on Sunday to begin a new adventure in a new city. I am so incredibly excited for her, but my heart is a little heavy knowing that I won't get to see her on a weekly basis anymore. It's always hard when friends move away.

Heavy heart aside, it was a very nice weekend! Apart from helping with moving preparations, I had a fun mini-slumber party at my house, put some new shelves up in the living room with a lot of help from my dad, and worked on a fun project that I'm excited to share with you guys later this week!

Even though I haven't gone back to work yet, I'm already excited for next weekend! Guys, I've been rocking my natural hair color for a few years, but for the last few months, I've been falling prey to the siren song of darker hair. I loved being blonde as a kid, but when my hair started to darken up as a teenager, I pretty much wanted nothing more than to have brown hair. It's not there yet, so I'm going in to get my hair dyed a couple of shades darker on Friday! I'm pretty pumped about it.

Did you guys do anything fun over the long (or regular length) weekend? Any fun plans for the rest of your week?

Til next time!

    1. Thanks, Alecia! Yea, it's definitely rough, but you are so right about having new places to visit! It turns out I worked up enough frequent flier miles for a free ticket to LA, so I'll definitely be able to visit!

  14. I agree with the rest of the ladies: that red dress is stunning! My blogmate Jessi started dyeing her hair a few shades darker like 4 years ago and it's perfect on her. I love dark hair, can't wait to see the results!

    1. Girl, preach! All I dream up is darker, thick hair. I want hair big enough to be like, 70s dreamboat hair. Sigh.

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa! Friend moving totally blows. At least I have enough miles for a ticket to where she's moving! Softens the blow a touch, for sure.

  21. Oh my goodness, how did I not see this before? I LOVE that dress on you, and that color! It is absolutely gorgeous!
    I'm so sorry your friend moved away; it seems like all of my best friends live out of country, out of state, or 3+ hours away, so I know how that feels! But then think of it this way: you have a new destination you can travel to and explore with a friend!
