Lookbook: Leopard Hints + Ombre Highlights Results

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:)

  12. Love your outfit. The leopard print is a great addition! I am noticing that we both tend to have different styles we gravitate towards and I am definitely finding a ton of inspiration to expand my own fashion horizons.

    Love your hair, too!

  13. I am just like you. Saturn too passive at the salon and unfortunately end up leaving a lot like I came in. But I guess it's better than a horribly drastic result

  14. I've been seriously looking at those old navy dresses too-do you think the sweater dresses are a hit or miss for the preggo?
    And the boots are fab! I'm still hunting!

  15. I've never dyed my hair either. Actually I take that back.. I once got highlights when "all the girls were doing it" .. i hated it and immediately had it dyed back.. that was over 10 years ago. I think I'm going to stay dye free for a while but the ombre looks fantastic on you!!

  45. Anna, i fancy this look so much! you know the true testament to your style is that the clothes don't wear you! that is a silky sensation and i adore the gunmetal grey color a lot. so pretty to show off your own new do too!!! i've been transitioning to some ombre low lights also and it takes time. kinda good she didn't go all out at 1st, lets you relax into it and over the next few weeks it'll settle even more so then you know what you're working with on the next round. i LOVE it!!!

    your new boots are freakin' awesome! such a good idea about going in on it together, brilliant stuff. xoox ♥
