Like the Wind

polkatop

Hope you are having a wonderful March so far!  I figured it was a new month so changing my hair would be a great way to start it off.  Most of the red is out and I now have a copper tone with hints of pink.  I absolutely love it!  I'm also loving this new cropped blazer from August Wrinkle.  I tend to brighten up my LBD with colors and prints, so naturally I went for mint and polka dots.  The dress screams winter while the blazer and bag are perfect for spring.  Which also reflects the current limbo of seasons right now.  Are you ready for spring like I am?

Dress- Forever 21
Blazer- c/o August Wrinkle
Shoes- Old Navy
Bag- won in giveaway
Belt- Forever 21
Ring- Betsey Johnson

In case you didn't know, Betsey Johnson is back!  She has always been my absolute favorite designer (I have a collection of dresses in my closet) and I was sad to see her company close up last year.  Thankfully, she's back at designing those gorgeous dresses and I couldn't be happier.  Although now I don't have the disposable income to shop her collections anymore...  This house hunting/saving thing is really cramping my shopping style!

  8. Your hair looks amazing! I wish I could see the pink a bit more. It is perfect for your complexion.

    That bag and belt are what finish the outfit for me.

    I'm so glad that Betsy is back. I was very disappointed last year when she had to close up shop. I have one of her dresses and just adore it.

  12. she's back? didnt you just saw she was gone? haha either way, love all the sweet girly touches in your outfit & your hair looks great! oh and to answer your question yes, I always cut my own bangs except when i go for a haircut, which ends up being like twice a year at a $15 place haha.

  13. I like the new hair! How often do you dye it? I am definitely with you on longing for spring. I went into a practical monologue about it with my other half today! I am so sick of having to layer coats on top of everything - especially when it is freezing outside but boiling in my office! I have to plan for 2 different sets of weather in one day. :) Looks like it is quite nice where you are though. I don't think I've had bare legs outside for 6 months.

  14. I love your hair! It's absolutely perfect. But I'm a huge fan of coppery hair. Also this blazer and the bag are amazing! I wish I owned a Betsey dress. I've never had that kind of money. But boy do I wish. Her dresses are the BEST.

  20. A new hair colour is a perfect way to welcome spring and a new month! I live in Australia so it's Autumn now, and the weather is gloomy and it's constantly raining, I was complaining about the heat in Summer, and now I want it back (typical me.)

    These images are lovely and you look absolutely gorgeous. That really is a beautiful hair colour, it brings out your eyes (especially when juxtaposed with that belt, bag and necklace.)

    Hope you're enjoying spring!

  26. Yes - so true! But all the shopping budget stuff is worth it once you have a place to call your own :-) I LOVE anything and everything Betsey too. The little turquoise heart bag and polka dot combo with your pretty dress is such a sweet combo. You always have me wishing the weather was warmer where I live. Gorgeous Ashley!
