Radiant Ribbons

Modcloth Bea & Dot Radiant Ribbons dress

Well, my pink hair lasted about six months!  I'm actually pretty impressed that it lasted that long.  Once your hair is bleached light enough to do pastel colors the possibilities are endless.  Purple happens to be my favorite color so it was at the top of my list.  I mixed my own color here and I really love the results.  While pink was great, I felt like I couldn't wear pink clothing without feeling like it was overkill.  Expect to see lots of pink outfits in future!

Life has been a little crazy lately.  Bianca is on the move and gets into everything.  While I love that she's growing, it's so much harder to get anything done when I'm home alone.  I used to go out and take pictures in the morning with her but that's proven to be nearly impossible.  Even when I take pictures in my backyard she's bored and cranky (see picture above, haha).  
 
My blog is suffering aesthetically,  but that's nothing when I compare it to other issues.  It's difficult to take a shower, get any chores done, or even write this post without having to watch her like a hawk.  I've decided to catch up on my favorite blogs on the weekend because that's truly the only time I have to myself.  So please know that I'm not being a jerk, I'm just focused on being a mom :).

  2. yes to the dress! Its so pretty! I love that it's not shiny per say, but has such a pretty sheen to it. You hair is AMAZING, the purple may suit you even more than the pink and I didnt think that was even possible :)

  6. Aw when I was a nanny for my nephew. I remember that stage, it can be fun and exciting but also reallllly exhausting. Its like just imagine being open upped to a whole new world, you just want to be on the move to touch and smell and taste it all, at least thats what I imagine having newly acquired use of my legs would be like. Either way I think its cute when Bianca makes an appearance in your photos! That dress is lovely, its simple but is so flattering!

  9. I loved the pink on you, but dare I say that I love the purple even more?! I think it's a good choice, moving into the colder months...and well, who doesn't love to switch up the hair every now and again, right?!

  10. The purples lovely! It's going to look great with cool tones - like the blue in your dress here. I'm full of admiration that you can blog at all with a little one, and your pictures have always looked great to me. If I had such a pretty backyard I'd use it as a back drop all the time anyway! x

  11. Handling little ones as they get more mobile and curious for life can definitely be a big challenge. You are doing great! Bianca is lucky to have such a loving family!

    Also- you are the first person I've ever seen that I really love the purple hair on. It looks- as weird as this sounds- natural almost. Like, there's depth to the color,and it compliments your skin tone, which is not always the case. Plus- adorable dress goes with the hair!

    And I totally hear you, when my hair was red for a bit I avoided my red clothes because it looked like waaaay too much!

  15. I love your new hair color, and your outfit is perfect! Bianca is SO cute (even when she's cranky :p). You blog pretty often for being a full-time momma. I haven't been blogging too much lately, what's my excuse?!

  16. I love this color on you. It's perfect. I really admire the way your color never looks gross and spotty. I feel like way too often colored hair girls have streaky, spotty, strangely colored locks and yours always looks perfect. An inspiration to all that dream of candy colored hair.

    Also this dress fits you like a dream. Also accessories?! Who are you?
