Utility Girl + Red Hair

Received this BEAUTIFUL dress from McGinn Collection last week and decided to make it more day time appropriate, so I paired it with a Utility jacket. This is the second time wearing a utility jacket this week (worn HERE too) I’m convinced that they are the perfect transitional piece to take your summer pieces into the fall. “Borrowed” this belt from the hubbys closet along with his aviators that I never gave back from months ago! Now that we’re married ..whats his is mine, right?? ;)

I recently died my hair RED for the new fall season… it came out a bit more red than expected, but nonetheless it’s slowly growing on me. What do you guys think??? Do you think I should keep it this red or tone it down a bit??

Hope you all have a lovely & restful weekend!!!

If you love to go to the hairdresser to get your styling done, but you are tired of being limited to certain styles because of your hair length, you should ask your stylist about using hair extensions. You don’t have to wear wigs, which can look extremely obvious. You don’t have to be stuck with a style or color that doesn’t compliment your face either. You can get any style you like from wearing hair extensions. What’s so great about them is that they look and feel just like your real hair, and no one will be able to tell the difference as to whether or not you are wearing extensions.

Love the outfit! But I have to admit that the hair colour it’s… um… I don’t know… I guess I prefer more hazel-ish, caramel-ish shades.

Obsessed with that dress/utility jacket combo! The red will tone down as you continue to wash!

Keep the red! It’ll gradually tone down on its own.
