Hello hello....I know I just kind of hit you Monday with the new hair color without an let 'splain myself. I'm tired of being deemed a "cute" little blonde girl. I just happen to be blonde and little but that doesn't mean that I'm "cute"....and I know that the term cute isn't bad but for some reason it holds a negative connotation for me, its just that I can think of so many other adjectives to describe myself. So....while standing in the hair color aisle at Walgreens this weekend with an issue of Glamour in one hand and my skinny vanilla latte in the other I said "what the hell, lets do this....." And I'm not sure if you can tell.....but that last picture is me "grabbing the bull by the horns" a nice little analogy for what is happening in my life at the moment. 

Soooo I'm curious, is there anything that you guys have been thinking about doing but just haven't had the guts to?????? PS how awesome is this Le Tote top......loving it with the new do!


  1. you are very beautiful!


    Coline !

  4. Wow, amazing girly look!!! Great pictures! I'm following you right now, hope you will do same!

  5. I think it's awesome to "grab by the bull by the horns" and just go for it.
    you should edge up your hair with an edgier, shorter cut maybe. That's what I always want to do..I did it once and it just ended up looking like "mom" hair.
    anyway I love the silver and white together..very sleek.

  8. I've always wondered about going dark, dark brunette, but never had the guts! Good for you for "grabbing the bull by the horns"! I do love the pink! And these photos are absolutely amazing! Love this outfit sooo much!

  9. Well I think you are fierce and hilarious - is that better than cute? haha

    Your Le Tote top matches your new hair perfectly too! And those Prada sunnies, I am dying for.. One thing I have been going back and forth on for a couple weeks - I want to try short hair. I've had long hair all my life, but I need a change like now.

  10. So fun girl! You always have the best photos- looks like you're just loving life. Adore those shoes!


  11. You are dynamite, absolutely stunning!!!!

    (Are these words better than *cute*? More dramatic and so very true)

    I love your shimmer pants and your chunky bracelet! Not to mention those ruffles....::swoon::

  12. Those pants are so awesome! I won't call you cute. You are pure fabulousness.

  13. EVERYONE says I'm cute.

    Even when I'm trying to be cool. So I TOTALLY empathize with this sentiment and 100% condone your hair choice.

    You look like a badass rocker chick with just the right hint of sparkle and sweet. those pants are INSANE and I definitely need more chrome in my wardrobe - inspired by you.

    And I'm literally like 1 day away from writing another post on leather gloves. I've been obsessed, but these up-to-the-elbow ones are seriously so unique and such a statement.

    You. are. a. babe.


  14. I always love what you and Molly conjure up for your photos, I need a friend like her too :) I really love those metallic jeans! They don't work on me b/c I have a badonkadonk.. but they look really chic on you!

  15. Well, you can totally rock the pink hair! I've always wanted bangs but I have a threehead instead of a forehead so the hairdresser says bangs wouldn't work for me :-(

  16. Those shoes are haute! Seriously loving the studs on them :) I love how you are rocking the pink hair!

  25. love your color. I think what matters most is what you think about yourself, not what others think. I like how you changed it up with colors in the bottom! i recently died my hair too.

  26. Normally I'm not a fan of pink, but I absolutely love this outfit... especially your pink tips.
    And your spiked heels & Prada shades are to die for!

  30. Hey there,
    What a glamourous weekend chic look. I really like the ombre pink hair it's so edgy.
    You look great girl! I like the picture of your shoes a lot.
    Thanks for visting my blog.
    Your visits make my days sweeter.
    Take me To Tarah

  31. Love this! I've always felt that the term 'cute' has negative connotations's almost like a non word, something you'd use when you can't think of better words to describe a person. I think the next step is for you to go full headed pink, it'll look fantastic on you. If anyone can pull off pink hair it's definitely you! Love these animated pics too, reminds me of Man Repeller.

  32. I love this! I love that you went for it!! The pink is amazing!! I think I grab the bull a lot in terms of other things in my life--and in terms of fashion too (but to be honest, I would love to have pink hair too!!!)
    PS- sorry if I've ever called you cute! I've never thought about it in a negative way but I know that some people do! :) :)

  37. Gorgeous outfit.. love the silvery tone. I have been wanting to chop my hair off boy cut like Anne Hathaway but never have the guts.. cant glue back hair, can I?

    Greetings from Dubai!

  38. You are adorable! Love this look.


  39. Your hair is pink and you're grabbing a pink bull; you ditch your man and I'll ditch mine, let's get married in a very fashionable wedding and a very chic cake.

  44. Brooke I have a few new adjectives for you: fierce, fearless and flippin' hilarious...! The hair is totally amaze balls, good for you for grabbing those horns! My list of what I should be having the guts to do goes on and on - I try one thing at a time ;))

  45. love your pants!

  46. Everything about your outfit is cute! what a stunning outfit!

  47. you look perfect as usual! that bag is amazing :)

  48. You're so right! What a fabulous quote! Such an easy starting place if your look needs a boost, too. Thank you for sharing that!

  49. I totally agree with you on the "cute" thing. A few years ago someone compared me to Dakota Fanning and although she is fierce now. Several years ago she was known for her role in War of the Worlds and the last thing I wanted to be related to was the screaming little blonde. It was awful. I think you rock. :o) Especially with pink hair.

  50. Wow I love this outfit and the shoes are amazing, looking forward a similare one :)

  51. I think this has got to be one of my favorite looks from you. I LOVE the metallic accents!!
