After weeks of complaining about how awful my roots were I finally had an appointment with my hairdresser yesterday to sort out the mess. I go to the Witches Hut in Clapham Common where Frankie has been doing my hair for years, it's a really cool independent salon that is cheaper than most high street chains and the people who work there are really creative and lovely, I highly recommend the place. After I get my roots bleached I have toner applied and this is the step that varies on each visit, sometimes I have pink toner applied, sometimes it's purple and sometimes it can even be silver. The toner colour doesn't really stay in my hair for long and after a few washes it's normally back to white blonde colour which is why I don't mind experimenting with colour. On this particular visit the salon had a new toner in stock so after a little persuasion from Frankie I thought hey why not try this new peachy pink colour. When the toner was first applied my hair turned orange almost instantly but I had to remember that toner ALWAYS looks darker before being washed off. After laughing in the mirror about the crazy colour the toner was eventually washed of and the result was this lovely candy floss peach side. My hair has has never been this colour before but I absolutely love it, the strawberry blonde is a shade you don't often see amongst all the pastel pinks and purple so it's fun to stand out a little bit. I hope they don't freak out at work tomorrow but I'll assure them that by next weekend my hair will probably be back to normal!

As for the outfit, this is a new dress from ASOS and I really like the oversized style of it. It's quite short so I have to be careful not to wave my hands around in the air frantically! I feel very me in this outfit as this is the sort of look I gravitate to most days. My style has always been a bit grungy but unlike when I was a teenager it's a bit less baggy jeans and more pulled together and girly these days. The chunky shoes have stayed with me over the years but I've swapped Vans for Creepers with cute socks. Even my jewellery has had upgrade, it's still bulky but a rose gold watch and Mulberry cuff beat an arm party of plastic fantastic beads and rubber bands any days. Unfortuantely my favourite tights of the moment laddered today which is really no surprise as they're super thin but I'm going to hang on to them for a bit and hope they don't get any worse as I just love the comedy value of those little faces!

How dos your style now reflect that of your teenage self x
