HEY! What's the big idea?

These photos were taken last night and I am so sorry I did not get this post done this morning!!  It was very sick and cruel for me to be such a tease yesterday and not deliver the goods on time today!!  Here is the good news!!
  1. I had a hair appointment at 11:00 today to get my hair dyed BLONDE!!!  I lightened it last week to get a base low light color, and the rest of the shades of butter and what not are going in today!! 
  2. Mel from Idee Geniale is sitting on the couch next to me (and going through my son's martial arts Boxing patterns)!!!!  I picked her up from the airport just a couple hours ago!!!!! And tomorrow we get in the car (with my dashingly handsome husband who has been putting up with my craziness very well these past few weeks) and we are driving to Coachella!!
  3. And by Coachella I mean we have a room and three day passes for the whole music festival shebang!  We will be seeing She and Him, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Phoenix, LCD Soundsystem and like a million other really great bands!  
I am sorry if you thought I had something super amazing that was different from all of this, But in my book these things are pretty freaking spectacular!

We went up to the studio after dinner and my son took these pictures for us!  So funny!  We will be driving for like 10 hours tomorrow, but I will continue posting through our Coachella weekend!! Sorry again for being such a hose beast.

You look great as a blonde! Oh, I love Mel, do give her my regards, tell her I am sorry about acting like a creep (I stalk her blog, you see) but she is just gorgeous! You guys have fun. Waiting for more stories from you.

I think those are pretty amazing things in my book too! I desperately need a hair appt...I look like I have a mullet or like a little boy. Or both. And how fun having Mel there and going to Coachella! We just had SXSW here a few weeks ago, so I can only imagine the fun you are gonna have!!

tracy said...

WOW.

You look GORGEOUS!!! I love your new hair color, totally suits you! I saw your younger pictures when your hair was blonde, and I actually was thinking how you'd look with blonde hair. Must be kismet that you actually went and gave yourself the new look. Awesome.
And your son is adorableness I just want to give lots of hugs and kisses to him. It's awesome too to have your blogger friend, Idee Geniale, joining you. :D

I hope you guys enjoy your Coachella trip. JEALOUS!!!! I have a huge girl crush on Charlotte Gainsbourg. If you have a pic of her live I promise you my undying devotion. LOL.

ah so exciting I had to post my first comment! Ive been racking my brain over what to wear for weeks. Cant wait to see what outfits you guys put together! Functional Fashion is key for coachella but at least it should be 10 degress cooler than last year!

So maybe my guesses were a little more dramatic than your real news, but that is still pretty fantastic! Mel's blog is one of my fave's, and I am incredibly jealous that you are going to see She + Him!!!

Your hair is looking adorable, I can't wait to see the finished project! Speaking of adorable, your little guy is to die for! What a cutie!

eva said...

Hi! I love your style all around. And I especially LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shoes. I might be getting myself a pair as well.

my name is lauren. said...

those heels are incredible - and i actually have a question....i've had the hardest time finding cute slouchy boyfriend jeans that don't look super baggy and ridiculous or ones that are too tight. do you have any suggestions for a brand that makes good boyfriend jeans?

Jessica said...

Yaaay, I'm loving seeing this whole you and Mel Coachella thing - I love both your blogs so much! Your hair looks so great! You're making me wanna go back to blonde!

Ashley J said...

Those shoes are FABULOUS!!! Where did they come from?

I absolutely love this outfit. The colors are awesome, the loose style is super-flattering, and the shoes...well, they're the best part! You really rock the hats on this blog, and I appreciate that. :)

ahhteacouture said...

Your hair looks gorgeous! When you say you lightened it to get a base color did you do it yourself? And how do you describe to your stylist what you want for color?

Im naturally a dirty blonde but have dyed my hair dark for so long I forget what it even looks like! I have been thinking maybe i should embrace my original lightness haha :)

Thanks in advance!
Rachel xoxo
