Style File 11.22.10

I died my hair last Thursday. It came out a little darker than I wanted, but overall I like it a lot. I also very much like this outfit. I have been really loving dressing for Fall. I scored a ton of awesome colored tights from forever 21 this year. You really can’t go wrong for $6.80 and I have to say they are pretty quality. They are super thick, stretchy and have tons of colors. I love this burnt orange color.

We are leaving for Florida on Thursday. I can’t wait for a little vaca with Kev and Rowan. I am hoping for nice weather. I have been checking and its been around 78-80 degrees everyday, so I am pumped. My parents have a house down there on the Grand Canal. I can’t wait to see the manatee and dolphins swimming by every morning! I ordered a bathing suit from modcloth. I am hoping it arrives tomorrow. I am a little scared to try it on, but no fears of my post baby body will keep me out of swimming in the hot tub every night while we are there!

  4. Love the colors here. Esp the color of the tights. Really nice!

  5. The colour of the tights is great! Do take Rowan swimming, I bet she’ll love it!

  6. First off, your hair looks AWESOME! Secondly, I absolutely adore your outfit. The shirt with the red tights is just perfect. Have fun in FL! I’m about to board my flight outta there right now. (:

  7. Hooray for the mixing of neutrals! It’s such a sophisticated trend right now, and you do it perfectly. And yes, those orange tights are amazing.

    Have fun swimming with the manatees!

  8. I absolutely love your hair color! Dark for the winter is always a great look! I hope you, Kev and Rowan have an amazing time on your vacation! Super jealous over here! 🙂

  9. I just got back from Florida yesterday. It is amazing down there. Have a wonderful time!

  10. I just got back from Florida and I wish I was able to stay longer! The weather is perfect there right now. I love those tights! I will have to check Forever 21 for some new colored tights. What color did you use to dye your hair? I want to dye my hair that color and our “before” shades are similar so I’m wondering which one you picked.

  11. Love the dark(er) hair! Who says blondes have more fun!? I’m biased though. I am glad you like the F21 tights. I have been eyeballing quite a few pairs from there myself, but I wasn’t sure if they would hold up to my destructive ways. They also have some cute colors at and they are only a couple dollars more than F21. Have a good Monday, Jen!

  12. Cute outfit! I LOVE the orange tights!

  13. so cute. i’m crushin’ on those buffalo check shirts and i love that you buttoned it all the way up to the tip top.
