the moral wardrobe: before the storm

 Outfit Details: Dress – secondhand via thredup / Shoes – Sseko / Necklace – handmade via (of)matter

When I went out to take outfit photos Wednesday I could tell a storm was coming from the eerie calm and tangible pressure. By the time I was wrapping up the shoot, the wind picked up, aggressively tearing leaves from the backyard tree and flinging them into the frame. It was exciting! As you can see, I look a bit terrified and the storm that ensued was rather dramatic, but I spent most of it indoors at a local pub eating a big bowl of fries with friends.

In other news, my hair is no longer blonde! I never felt quite me with blonde hair, but I didn’t want to  spend a whole bunch of money at the salon having them re-dye it. I read some horror stories about using home dye on bleached hair, but it turned out fine. I’ll probably need to dye it again to tone the extreme brightness down, but eh, whatever – it’s fine for now. You can see what it looks like on instagram.

    I *love* that dress. And I enjoyed your blondeness but the redness is lovely too!

      Thanks! It’s faded a ton this week, so I’m going to have to figure out how to fix it, but it’s kind of a cool strawberry blonde on top now.
