What I Wore Wednesday: Surprise Snow and Lunch Meeting

I did attempt to take a photo of what I wore to my meeting down south last week in a bathroom at Heathrow but that didn't really work out. I promise it was a super cute black HM dress with my leopard heels. I was going to try again but then I flashed a TSA agent (I'm not using hyperbole here; literally my entire bra was showing from 4 buttons popping open) I threw on a cardigan and ditched my cute heels for flip flops and gave up.

Last week it was in the 70's, I was wearing Flip-Flops and had a lunch on a patio by the River Thames; today I woke up and it was snowing--seriously SNOWING. So for my lunch meeting I was decidedly more bundled up.

In addition to the snow it is also blowing a gale so apologies for the wind blown hair. Like I said it is literally freezing so NotBlondeHusband wasn't feeling up to taking more than one photo. You can sort of tell but my good friend Jef re-dyed my pink for me. It is a bit darker than I wanted but it is fading gradually to the shade I wanted with repeated washes with clarifying shampoo.

Grey Cowl Neck Sweater- New Look

The weather is just bonkers! Flip flops one week, boots the next. I think you're doing a much better job than me of keeping up ;-)

sorry about the snow :(

We've been having the same schizo-weather in central New York. Last week bare legs...this week back to tights and boots. I love how a trench can pull an outfit together.

wow!  snow?!  after 70 degree weather??  crazy.  on a good note, your hair looks awesome!  i love the pink tips.  and even if it's a little darker than you'd like, i'm sure it'll begin to fade after a few washes.  (unless you found the coveted truly permanent cool color hair dye and if so, please please please tell me where you got it!)

I like the pink!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Still a little dark for me but it is getting there :)

Melaina25 said...

It is Directions Cerise and it is fading VERY slowly. I've been super sudsing it up with clarifying shampoo and washing up liquid and it is barely shifting!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! It is hard to tell but it is a cowl neck sweater dress. I love it because it can be casual or more professional.

Melaina25 said...

The pink is my hair! I got it done almost a month ago but my friend re-dyed it this past weekend.

I was sooo happy to get my flip flops out and now I've had to go back to boots! Not fair!

Melaina25 said...

I'm lucky my MIL left her coat at my house while she went to Florida :)

Melaina25 said...

I can't handle it! I'm glad I booked a girlie getaway in the sun now that snow is back. I can't believe how much y'all got!

Melaina25 said...

It was that annoying snow that means it is cold but it didn't lie so we couldn't play in it!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Why such a long wait to touch it up?

Melaina25 said...

You could it just wouldn't be as vibrant unless you bleached first :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Still a bit dark for my liking :)

Melaina25 said...

I just hope that wasn't our summer last week!

Thank you for hosting. Your hair looks great.  I am sad my purple has almost all faded out. I am hoping to redo it in July.
