Lookbook: Leopard Hints + Ombre Highlights Results

September 14, 2011

Dress: Old Navy, Necklaces: BMB, IHOD, Earrings: H&M, Belt: H&M, Flats: F21(similar), Tote Bag: Mimi Boutique
So I went through with it. I got the ombre highlights last weekend (thanks to groupon for an awesome deal to a snazzy salon), and my hair met dye for the first time ever:) I am so glad I did too. LOVE how natural it turned out, and how I won’t have to keep up with it too much. I kind of wish she wouldn’t have gone so easy on me though. I could have gone for a more drastic look. I tend to be too passive in the hair salon chair, and should have spoke up sooner. Funny story….the stylist suggested maybe purple highlights over these next time. Sorry hun- not happening!
Also I caved, and bought THE boots.
With good reason though:) My awesome friend Laura saw me post about them here, and pointed out that Famous Footwear was having a Buy one get one half off + 20% off sale. So she had this great idea to both get a pair for a super steal. I am pretty sure these will be worn every day of fall…so they are justified:)

Veronica Rose: 5 months.

September 12, 2011

This is Veronica Rose at 5 months old! She found her thumb in the first photo:)
She is miss roly poly lately. She learned to roll over this month onto her stomach and look around like a little turtle. My husband discovered her giggle, by putting her feet up to his scruff. It was the sweetest sound to our ears. 
Her beautiful handmade headband is from the fabulous Ilene’s shop, Much Love Illy. Its Veronica’s new favorite:)
and of course, these are the men in our life that make every day an adventure….
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
