Lately I've been so drawn to flowy pieces. (Should be noted at this point I'm not pregnant, I just really like when absolutely nothing is touching my body.) I was looking around bloom  at our fall merchandise the other day and thought "yep, I'm either turning into a grandmother or Rachel Zoe." I'm kind of okay with either at this point. 
A couple of people, including my mother, have asked about my hair lately. Is it ombre? Is it supposed to be that way? What's happening here? Well I guess it kind of is ombre now because of the sun and left over hair color. Basically since my hair grows faster than I can afford to keep up with hair color, we just dyed the top part back to my original color. So unintentional ombre, I guess. I was never brave enough to take the actual plunge so this was a nice surprise. And now I can't believe that the best thing I had to write today was whole paragraph about my hair. *hangs head in shame*

  4. I've heard the term "ombre" on Project Runway for years... and only recently learned what the heck it meant. So when I was scrolling through the photos, I said "I think I've spotted Ombre in real life!" So, thanks for mentioning it ... I'm so happy with my new vocabulary addition.

  5. You are rarely seen in Jeans. But you look really good in them!

  6. I love the flowing look in summer. When it's 105 in Dallas, who wants anything touching your body? And since people tend to frown upon running around naked everyday, flowing is the way to go!

    And I think your hair is pretty! It looks natural, like you're one of the those lucky people who can say, "Oh this? It's just my natural color!"

    I love that tunic! Totally agree about the flowy pieces... the older I'm getting the more I realize comfort is key!

  8. it looks ombre and I think you should just embrace it, which you clearly have done... especially on the grandmother/rachel zoe front. I love the boho look, I'm terrible at it as I may pair something "boho" with a pair of pearl studs or something.

    Loving the colors!

  12. I think the unintentional ombre look is really pretty! it's very subtle, but the colors still work well together. and I really like the colorblocking on that purse - so cute.

  19. If it wasn't for all my stray, gray hairs I'd do this myself as well. Let it grow and just keep the roots my natural color. I love the look and since your hair is darker it blends so well!

  20. Love those wedges!

  31. I'm loving your hair AND your makeup! It always looks so fresh. Any tips on applying your eyeliner? It looks amazing in that last photo. Would love to know what brand/color you use.

  36. Haha awesome... love the boho look... who cares what's going on with your hair? Pretty soon someone else will be asking how you got your hair to do that and you'll be a trendsetter...

  37. of course i don't mind! this was day one, i'm currently on day two (so tomorrow's photos). if i can go 4 days, that's what i prefer. usually day 1-2 are worn down and then 3-4 are up! Suave dry shampoo is my jam.

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOL! If you don't want anything touching your body, you're likely to stay unpregnant. :) BTW you look gorgeous. Your inner glow is very becoming.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would pay good money to have my hair look like that!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Question: who makes your necklace? (You look beautiful as always by the way...)

    Also, don't feel bad about 'just' talking about your hair. I told a friend recently that I'm not a well-rounded individual, and I'm totally okay with it. I can talk about my faith, my kids, and clothes. That's about it!

  45. I love those shoes! To die for.

    I switched over to ombre-ish hair (I'm already blonde and it's just slightly blonder at the ends) but it has saved me a ton of hassle with getting my hair done.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Turning into Rachel Zoe is definitely fine, that means you have an amazing style! Love that top, the print is fabulous and love the loose fit. Adore the camel accents, that bag is amaze!

  49. This is one of my favorite looks so far on you! LOVE the top, I might have to stop in and get it! And once you mentioned RZ I was like, yep, that's why I love it! Flowy clothes are kind of the best.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ha! "yep, I'm either turning into a grandmother or Rachel Zoe." -- I also think that with the Texas heat you just CAN'T wear a tight/clingy shirt. Silky and breezy is the only way to go and still look chic instead of sweaty.

    Great hearing you speak on Sunday!

  51. I noticed your hair as well. lol I'm loving it...and it's looking long!!

  54. I love that one, too. At first the peach-y smell bothered me but it's grown on me. Thanks for responding! I always wonder what other people do with their hair when they don't wash it everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ha. I've written entire posts on my hair...on purpose. No shame. And super cute outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I guess everyone loved your shirt cause it's sold out! It's beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. That top is fantastic! I see that it's sold out at bloom. Any chance you'll get any more in stock, or you'll reveal what brand it is?

  58. love the top! and your unintentional ombre looks fantastic!

  59. Accidental or not, I love the ombre hair! I'm a flowy top lover myself, which made hiding my pregnancy (I'm 18 weeks) much easier at work. But now that you've told people you're not pregnant, the next time you wear something flowy and don't say you're not we're all going to be wondering! :) xx, risa

  67. Love the hair!! Looks really great. I was just thinking today how I will probably never have the guts to try ombre ;)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Guuuurrrrrllll this outfit is fab but you are wearing some TALL SHOES. I bought the Seychelles wedges you wore once (that look a little like stacked loafers?) and they might be too tall for me to wear on the regular. :/ How do you do it?!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Love your hair! I have been wanting to do an ombre look for a while now, but I'm not brave enough to take the plunge. I stopped dying my hair 10 years ago and I am scared to death to start again. Hair color maintenance is so much time and money!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Amazing, those shoes are to die for!!

  73. I love everything about this look, and I think the ombre adds to the boho look for sure! Ombre, flowy tops, skinnies, and wedges--girl after my own heart--these are my personal favs on myself.

  77. Such a lovely casual outfit! I really like that snake print tunic, I have a very similar one, but cotton so it's a little less flowy. I like how you've styled it with the jeans and wedges :)

  82. honestly I had to really focus on walking all day and not turning an ankle. sad truths. I figure one day I'll get to the point where I don't want to wear anything but flats so I'm trying to get all of my heel wearing in now :)

  83. Sarah -- I hope you were able to get a full and sound night's rest last night knowing the truth about my hair.

  84. That's good to hear! I swear I gave myself a shin split walking around quickly in those puppies and I was thinking, What Would Kendi Do? (The answer: suck it up, the shoes look good! Haha.)
