New Primark Bag + What Have I Done to my Hair?! | OOTD

by - September 11, 2017

So before I tell you what I did to my hair, I want to talk about what I'm wearing. As you can see, I'm wearing the most basic outfit ever: jeans, white t-shirt and white sneakers. And why am I wearing such basic pieces? Because I wanted it to be all about the accessories. I was never much of an accessories kind of person but I'm trying to get more into it because I feel like as a blogger, I need to step up my fashion game and I really want to start incorporating more accessories into my outfits and have more fun with it because it does seem fun how a simple accessory can change an entire outfit.
So I decided that for the first few times, I'd choose simple clothing and then as time goes by, I'd feel more comfortable and try to pair the accessories with more detailed clothing.
For today, I went for this choker that I hadn't worn in a while and I thought the lace looked nice here since the shoulders on my t-shirt are also lace. I also chose these rings which I think are so cute but unfortunately, not all of them fit me and the ones that don't fit could be worn as knuckle rings but my fingers are so thin, the rings just fly off my hands... But the ones that do fit are super cute and I absolutely love them. Since I was going for a white t-shirt and sneakers, I really like to pair gold with it. My favourite metallic colour out of the three main ones is copper/rose gold and my second favourite is silver but I think gold looks super nice with black and/or white.
Finally, the bag. This is a recent purchase. I was in need of a new small bag and as you know, I don't wear leather so my first instinct was to go for a cheaper bag since those usually aren't made of leather. My first thought was Primark. Their bags are cheap but good and they're always really cute. I went with my parents which made the choice harder because they're very opinionated and most of the time, their opinions are the complete opposite of mine. They wanted me to get this black, brown and beige bag which I wasn't a fan of because I don't really like the combination of black with brown tones. I also saw another light grey bag that was super pretty but because it was such a light colour it would get stained and dirty really easily. But then, I saw this bag. They had another version of it in grey and yellow, I believe but this one was my favourite. I love the combination of the black with the plum which is gonna be perfect for fall and I love the crocodile texture in the front bit of the bag, it looks so mature. I absolutely love this bag, I'm gonna get so much wear out of it, I'm sure.

And now, you're probably wondering what the hell I've done with my hair, right? For a little bit over a year now, I think, I've wanted to do something with my hair. I really wanted to dye it auburn. I love my natural shade but I was getting bored of it and I wanted a change. At the time, I didn't go for it and later on, my mind started to get more into ginger and orange than auburn. Needless to say, after watching Riverdale, I was definitely inclined to go ginger. Cheryl's (Madelaine Petsch) hair is so beautiful and was definitely my goal alongside Clary Fairchild's (Katherine McNamara) from Shadowhunters. Their hair is so beautiful and I can definitely tell that ginger hair is gonna be a trend soon if it isn't already because I've seen a few people go ginger recently too.
Anyways, do you like it? I don't know how long I'm gonna keep this colour but I really enjoy it so maybe I'll keep it for a long time, who knows. Also, do you want me to write a post where I explain how I went from a dark brown to a ginger/lighter colour? I'd be happy to do that but only if you want me to.

I hope you're having a great day,
