Strawberry Shortcake + Mint

Fembot by Robyn on Grooveshark

I've been relishing in the slightly more Autumn-like days we've been having around town lately. I almost forgot what a comfortable day in Nashville felt like. August is notoriously hot and humid here normally but I'm trying to get in all of my Summer dresses before the cooler weather starts to settle in. Cotton candy/baby pink is my favorite color and this outfit isn't lacking any in that department. The pink hair is back... for now. Not sure if it'll be a daily thing or just a "for fun" doing. I've been feeling very lackluster in my "self esteem" department and I'm trying to squash the shyness before it takes over my life. Does that sound as weird to read as it does to type? I know it's silly, but crazy colored hair kind of pushes me to branch out a little... even if just dealing with stares and snickers haha 


So this dress... I've had this dress for a couple of years now (year and a half-ish?) I blogged about this dress in the yellow color back in April, but this is the first time the blue one has made it to the blog despite me wearing it almost constantly. It's such a classy and fun dress, though I think it takes on a slightly different look with pink hair and tattoos. I said it then and I'll say it again: I wish this dress came in every color of the rainbow. I'd own each one in multiples. Swoon.


The song I'm sharing today is my absolute favorite tune right now. I listened to my playlist (shared here) once through and then decided to listen to Robyn's Body Talk album. I'm embarrassed to admit how many times I listened to this song in a row. It was probably over 25. Please don't judge me. It's just so fun! I sat in traffic on the way up and I totally looked up the lyrics to the ~rapping part that I couldn't get. Now I've got it down! I'm totally on fire with it ;) Man, I sound so lame!

We've had so much fun in Indianapolis thus far! Bars, state fair, tattoos, thrifting, etc etc. Today we're thrifting more and heading to the zoo. Then hopefully meeting up with a friend or two from Indy! So glad we were able to come do this. Happy days!

  2. The pink hair is back! It works so well with that dress. So pretty.
    It's nice that you can switch things up whenever you feel like it. It's so easy to get bored with a hair style.

  28. Pssh, I totally love you. You rock the look that I can't at my 9-5 job. I would do anything to be able to have cotton candy pink hair. Period. Every now and then, we all get a little down on ourselves, but you've got it going on. You are an inspiration to me for sure. You should be proud of yourself. And that dress! I love it. I want it real bad.

    Love,

  31. You look incredible, love the dress and I absolutely love the pink hair, I love to change things up with my hair. Do you dye it this colour?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very pretty, I think this might be my favorite ever look of yours! Though I'm partial to pink hair of course. ;) The dress is super cute.

  33. The self esteem thing is brutal- I was going through a phase like that recently and it's started to break. I try to remind myself that moods are like the weather, they'll come and go. So I hope any clouds you've got roll out soon! On another tip, you look so good with the pink hair! I love you red but have you ever been blonde? I think I remember that you're toying with going brunette for the wedding, but afterward...just sayin'. I think light hair suits you and could be a fun change :)

  39. Ah! Kaelah you are just THE CUTEST! My bet is people are staring at you because they're ridiculously jealous...I know I certainty would be!

    Thank you for never failing to inspire me to always continued to be myself. x

  40. Makes total sense... I used to be painfully shy and then I started pushing things with my appearance as well... I do revert back to those methods when I feel reclusive or overly self-aware (in a not so pleasant way...) and it still works!
    You're such an amazing, cute girl, tho!!! I LOVE your hair!!! And not just the color! I'd kill to be girlie-er! You and SBean are AMAZING!!!

  41. That dress is simply gorgeous. I love this whole outfit!

  42. PINK HAIIRRR! So awesome. And I love how that dress looks on you.

    I felt the same way about dyeing my hair when I did pink/blue/rainbow. I didn't care what people thought of it, but I was a little nervous about people taking notice, since I generally try to avoid interactions with strangers... =) Anyway, I do end up getting a lot of random compliments about it, some weird looks and stares and probably some judgment I don't know about, but whatever! It's so worth it to have a hair color that feels right and makes you smile. =)

  48. You are such a doll. Freaking love this look on you. I think it's the contrast of the girly floral and pink with tattoos - it's so striking.
    Glad you're enjoying the pink!x
