New colors and cowls
Mum came by yesterday to dye my hair. I am trying to go from brown to blonde (which could end in a disaster if you don't really know how to use hydrogen peroxide appropriately). Mum is an expert of timeless and subtle elegance, so instead of boosting my hair straight into a bright color (which I was actually preferring first, since it gives you this "I was at the hairdresser's and am a new person now" - feeling), we go step by step every few weeks and the transformation is very natural and gentle. I'm at almondish bright brown right now, with loads of flattering facets.
While highlights were left to act for an hour, I made another version of the tighter loop scarf. Mum loves turtle necks, and having a separate one is the best option for her to turn non-turtle-neck pieces into the new favourite items. She chose a black jersey to go with the beautiful floral fabric you know already from I's scarf and A's wristwarmers. I love how she smartly combines it with a classic silver necklace and that timeless tweed jacket.
I hope you're having a good Sunday!
