ombré ombré!

Remember 6ish years ago when we were all watching our beloved Carrie play dress up in Paris–and wondering aloud to our girlfriends during the commercial breaks why she could spend so much money on dresses and shoes, but didn’t find the margin to touch up her roots? {We were perplexed, but it didn’t matter. She looked fabulous anyway. Of course}

Well, as I’ve noticed with most of the fashion on that show, the ladies of Sex and the City were definitely a handful of years ahead of the fashion forecast for the rest of the world. {Well, for the midwest farmer’s daughters, anyway}. Of course, now the ombré hair trend is popping up everywhere I look for fashion inspiration. And I LOVE it. LOOOVE it. But here’s the question–is it too much?

Since this whole hair episode of mine, you obviously know I have no fear of change. However, I have a running joke with some of my friends that where I live is not quite ready for some of the audacious offerings of an on-trend lifestyle. {2 of the last 3 times I wore a to run errands, I got asked if I was in a play or in costume. Seriously}. However, bits of ombré keep popping up in my life {like you, Miss Brooklyn!} and I’m thinking you know what? I love it. And since when has Rockford not being ready ever stopped me before? Never. {Well… sometimes}… I’m going in for a consultation tomorrow so we’ll see what happens! {By the way, it’s good to see you again!} xo, linds

p.s. The photographs of Carrie are from HBO. If you’d like to watch any of the Paris episodes, you can do so here.

Update: I DID IT!!! Paula at thexperience salon & spa is a-mazing! She did an excellent job–I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!! {Thanks so much for all your cute comments and emails}. Here are a few {really crummy quality, sorry} photos of how it turned out. Thanks, Paula! I LOVE it!!
