Ready For Fall

The oppressive heat and humidity has me screaming for fall. Fortunately we got a rare break in the 100+ degree heat thanks to a few consistent rain showers, and I desperately wanted to try out my new army vest from Zara. Army vest, where have you been all my life?

And, we all know how much I love vests.

Of course, it wouldn’t be me without a little sparkle.

I went back to Chuck at Michael Kemper salon to tweak the ombré hair he did for me two weeks earlier. We went a little darker on top to make the ombré more noticeable and I’m SO HAPPY with the results! I’ll admit, I did the ombré purely out of necessity, since I knew I wouldn’t be able to visit the hair salon as frequently now that I’m a busy resident, but now I love it so much I may be going back again to keep having this done! Efficiency fail.

    You look fantastic! I too am sooooo ready for fall! I love how you’ve styled that fab army vest from Zara! Do they have a lot of great military inspired pieces in now? Military inspired pieces are definitely a trend I’m looking to rock this fall. Again, love the look and thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    I did the whole Ombre thing to my hair a few months ago…so worth it! My hair grows SUPER fast, so not only did it save me money (not going to get my hair done as much) but I got tons of compliments on the coloring! Yours looks great as well!

    hi Kristina! I just discovered your blog via Fashionably Average, and I am so genuinely in love with it! I have been reading through it and I just love how open and honest you are! I feel like we are best friends already! Your style is so cute. I especially love the hair!! I just did ombre as well, and I am thinking next time I might go lighter on the ends, but I agree…it is so nice to have such a low-maintenace hair color!!! Can’t wait to read what is to come! -your newest follower!

  22. 08.28.2012 / 5:43 pm

    absolutely love the ‘do and this outfit is so my style! Great mix of colors with the perfect pair of denim. Win!

    You are rocking that look girl! Love the belt too.

  24. 08.29.2012 / 10:47 pm

    I’ve been trying to think of a new hairstyle for a while (I’m a blonde), and thought that blondes couldn’t really do the ombre without looking like we had roots. Thank you so much for giving me something to pin for the future!
    I can’t wait to see more of your fall style…this post just gave me a handfull of ideas!

  25. 08.30.2012 / 4:26 am
