What I Wore // On Holiday // Body Con

Dress - American Apparel
Shoes - Tesco
Sunglasses - Dorothy Perkins
Bag - Topshop
Ring/Bracelet - Greek tack shops(!)

I wish I had the confidence that a holiday brings at home. I hadn't worn this dress for years and haven't worn anything totally body-con for a while. When I was 21 I think my wardrobe was 80% body con. Then I gained over a stone and my confidence plummeted, whoops! Well, wearing my dress reignited my confidence somewhat, and reminded me that really, all that's needed for confidence is a positive attitude and a tall stance - Now to continue that mindset!

Argh, look at my roots! My usual hairdresser is on maternity leave at the moment and I daren't trust anyone else. Last time I did, my 'trim' turned into a 4 inch hacking and resulted in one traumatised Sarah. Plus, I'm contemplating dying my hair a dark blonde/brown for a change. My hair is naturally a dark blonde like this (4 year old picture, eek)! I have dyed it a copper blonde once before, and at one point it faded into this which may be what I go for, if not darker. Thats as dark as my hair has ever been, so I'm a bit apprehensive! What do you think?

  8. You look so pretty! I'm in love with your dress, I think you would look lovely in any hair colour. Sometimes it easier to get closer to natural hair colour as it's less fuss, I normally add highlights when I want a change of colour in my hair.x
