Blazer & Brooch: The Vintage Valley
Tank: Gap
Jeans: True Value Vintage
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Purse: Spotted Moth

Here is my lazy tip of the day. Want to make a jeans and tank combo look special without putting any effort into it? Throw on some gold. In this case I chose a vintage black and gold blazer (and my gold bow brooch). Easy peasy and it looks like I tried when I really didn't! How amazing is that? You are welcome.

Now, for the real reason for the Goldilocks title of my post. While I am a natural blonde, I do get highlights (I'm only a partial fraud). At this point, as you can see in these photos, I have a good 2 inches of roots going on. They drive me CRAAAZZYYY. Seriously bonkers. Normally at this point (or a month ago) I would have raced to the salon and thrown some bleach on those roots but I'm kind of getting tired of paying sooo much mooooney on my hair. I don't even want to think of how much money I've spent over the years on highlights. eek.

At the rate my hair grows it'll take 15 years to grow my hair out so I don't know if I'll have the patience... AND I legitimately have no idea what colour it will turn out to be. I'm assuming dirty blonde? That's the colour of these roots at least. I'm going to attempt a grow out and if it drives me crazy enough I'll either add a couple highlights (dear hair dresser, how many highlights can you give me for $20?) or I'll dye it brown.

Okay phew, I feel better now that I've talked about this. You may call rambling on about blonde highlights shallow but I call it necessary. Unless you've paid a salon bill for a head full of bleach highlight foils you don't understand the financial investment I'm talking about here ;)

My other tip of the day? Vintage shopping with your fashionable cousin is the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. Especially when she finds you the perfect item to buy! If you follow me on twitter you might know about my purchase on Saturday, but if not... well that's your fault for not following me on twitter and  now you'll NEVER* know what I bought!!

(*when I say never, I mean you'll know as soon as I post pictures... which will be soon ;))
