Dress – Anthro // Belt – Thrifted // Kitten Heels- Payless // Nails – Essie Set in Stones accent nail & Rimmel’s 60 Seconds Night Before under Deborah Lippman’s Flat Top matte topcoat
I hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July! I’m not always the flashiest patriot, but I love getting together with friends for food and fireworks. We went to my friend Ryan’s parents’ house and grilled burgers, watched fireworks, and ate Becca‘s delicious homemade cinnamon ice cream and apple pie (I only had the ice cream because I’d eaten too much beef, loaded baked potato salad, and baked beans – I see some health food in my future). I couldn’t pass up the chance to have photos taken in their beautiful backyard, so Becca gave me a hand and took some outfits photos while we were waiting for our other friends to arrive.
Two things: this dress is the love of my life and I’m a red head. Not as red as I wanted, but I don’t think I can go any lighter without bleaching the ends. My roots took the L’oreal HiColor for Dark Hair color really well, but there’s an even fade down into the more processed hair at the bottom. I used Sizzling Copper and there was a tube of copper intensifier but I didn’t put it in the mix because I’m a dingus and didn’t read the directions right. So who knows how red it could’ve been. Oh what ifs.
This scalloped dress is my big splurge for the summer. I saw a girl wearing it at the Impressionist exhibit at the Kimbell a few weeks ago and couldn’t stop thinking about it, and then I saw it on the front page of the Anthropologie website and it was done did.
