a shade braver


Dress * – Romwe

Necklace – H&M

Bag – Louis Vuitton Speedy 35

Shoes – Topshop

Today has been one of the lovely lazy days which started with an early morning hair appointment and finished with a stroll around town and a Starbucks in the sunshine. I subjected my hair to another bout of the blonde and I think I have finally achieved the bright, icy white shade I have been pining for. I wanted to get rid of all the golden tones and go for a much more cooler shade, which I think I have finally achieved. I am so thankful that my hair is ridiculously robust and manages to withstand my constant colour changing without so much of a flinch or suggestion of breakage. Hair done, we headed straight for a cool beverage and a leisurely saunter around the shops. Following three bum-numbing hours in the hairdressers’ chair I don’t know which was more welcoming – Starbucks’ new Berry Hibiscus Refresha, the glorious sunshine or the sight of the Topshop sale!

I hope you are all well and having lovely weekends.

    Very nice, really suits you. The Loreal Professionel shampoo for silver/grey hair (purple shampoo) is amazing for keeping the warmth out of blonde hair, I swear by it now after trying a variety of others.
