Blue Hair, Don’t Care


 
So I got my hair did. Its blue. Yep.  I let the team at Austen Thomson Hair experiment on my locks all night long until it transformed into an aqua mermaid fantasy, whilst filming for a halloween hair tutorial. 
With tones of bright cobalt blue, mint green, pastel yellow and baby blue, using Schwarzkopf Professional, it feels totally unique, but sure takes a lot of getting used to after having very pale pink hair! I decided to do a little outfit post showing a classic autumnal look, which really pops against the bright blue ‘do!
 
The striped sweater dress with side splits is from H&M, styled with a grey wool coat from Debenhams, thigh high suede boots from Schuh, watch from Olivia Burton and a Charlie Feist bag (my new favourite minimalist vegan accessories brand!)

City Break Outfit Diary

I’ve just returned from a wonderful long weekend (the best kind of weekend!) away in London and Manchester with my boyfriend for his 21st birthday, and thought I’d tell my lovely readers all about it through the medium of outfit photos, because for me, looking back at what I wear is usually the best way to remember things! 

Most of them feature my new favourite jacket, a pale pink/nude coloured duster coat, a shameless panic purchase from Primark. I adore long length coats, and own similar styles in grey black and navy, but I decided to splash out on colour to match my pink hair, and make more of a statement at London Fashion Week

Despite the rain and cloudy skies, I loved standing out from the sea of black in my pastel colours, paired with a metallic silver jumpsuit, classic ankle boots and a bright red lip.

Embracing a Healthy Body

I have been roughly the same weight now, a healthy BMI of 20, for about a year now. This is something that at one point was inconceivable, as anorexia and bulimia destroyed my body and my mind over and over again, I was in a constant state of flux throughout my teenage years.

Pink Hair and Pinstripe Cullottes

I don’t do outfit posts too often because I doubt many people are overly interested in my clothing (although I am partial to selfie much more on my instagram @urbanity_blog) but this weekend has been sunny and I’ve really enjoyed relaxed dressing for my rare weekend not working in a shop! 

These Zara culottes have been hanging unworn for a while but never find the right occasion of them. A summer evening walk and a cute cinema date in these babies was ideal, teamed with a simple black tee and birkenstocks.

Also, you may notice my rather strawberry-milkshake-esque hair! Lately I’ve been getting bored with being blonde so I’ve experimented with different semi-permanent pinks and purples. Its great to use these wash-in dyes from Crazy Colour because there no commitment (as I’m way too scared to dedicate my hair to being forever pink) and it gives you a chance to bring out your fun side and see what suits you.
