retro lady

 Valleygirl blouse, Asos skirt, Miss Shop booties, thrifted bag (not sure if it's vintage or not) 

Happy Sunday, friends! I know, I know. You've seen this top plenty of times but I may or may not be in love with it. It goes with absolutely everything and it's so light and breezy -- the ideal for spring. Speaking of clothing love, I received this retro car print skirt from ASOS they other week in the mail. It was a measly $13, (plus free shipping), was available in my size (quite rare) and, lastly, I was having a bad run and this little retail fix was exactly what I needed. I'm pretty proud of myself actually; I've barely spent any money over the course of this month and am well on my way to my dream camera.
I would actually have it by now but decided to save a little bit more and get a camera that was a step up from the Canon 1100d.
I feel I might outgrow that one quite quickly, so I'm now switching to the Nikon D5000, a more professional alternative that will take a bit longer to achieve, but worth it. The lovely Lily from Red Brick Lipstick uses this particular one and her photos are just beautiful.

Anyway, I need you guys' (terrible grammar...) advice: should I dye my hair darker? My hair is slowly starting to turn red and I'm not sure if I want to keep it or dye it darker. What do you guys think? Do I suit a lighter hue? I really would like to switch up my appearance a little bit ♥

P.S: Don't forget to enter my giveaway below! Who can resist a Fifi phone case?!
P.P.S: This bag, these glasses and this dress are on my current wishlist :)

I don't think you should dye your hair, actually! You have a very unique and lovely hair color and I think it's absolutely gorgeous on you! Anyway, love this car printed skirt. It's got cutesy cartoon patterns yet is flowy and goes really well with your stunning Peter Pan collared top. Lovely outfit, dear!

Happy Sunday! There's a new post up on my blog right now and I'd love to hear your thoughts so feel free to stop by :) x

I like your outfit Maria!If you dye your hair then you couldn't get back to your pretty hair.I have highlights in my hair and it's brown and it's easier to see it and i wouldn't want to take that whisk to dying my hair because for 2 reasons it wouldnt be as nice as the first time and it wouldn't be the same.I hope you pick your choice carefully.Thanks for sharing with us!

I love your outfit, what a cute skirt! I think that saving up for the Nikon D5000 is a good idea, I know another blogger who uses one and it takes amazing photo's.

Your hair colour is gorgeous, definitely leave it how it is, red hair is especially lovely during autumn :) I'm currently saving up for a camera too, and I'm way too impatient, it's taking too long!

who can resist a car print, lovely! <3 as for you hair I think it looks gorgeous in this shade, but there's nothing wrong with changing things up a little with temporary hair dye :) xx

Can I ask you an annoying blogger question? How did you make your header? Is that a font or handwriting? It's lovely.

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I really love that blue dress, and I am so glad I got it!

I'm really jealous of that skirt! I just adore vintage cars. <3

I have a Canon 60D. I originally wanted the T3i, but the 60D had a bit more sturdy of a body, and I'm so glad I got it! My cousin has the T3, and there are a lot less options on it (not as much control over the ISO and shutter speed). the one thing it does have that I like, is that you can set how many times the camera takes a picture after the timer counts down - if you have a remote, though, that's not really an issue. Hope this helps! I did a *ton* of research before I got my camera, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! ;D

The retro car print on that skirt is so lovely and so much fun! I remember seeing that print on the ASOS website. I vote for dying your hair! It's always nice changing it up. :)

I actually love your hair color the way it is. But whatever it is that we say, it is still all up to you.

I'm also thinking of buying new slr's but I don't think I can afford it so I'm going for a 50mm lens which is still on my want list.

Totally understand the desire to switch up one's appearance, but I have to cast my vote about your tresses and I say leave that gorgeous colour as is! You'll never get it back again if you start tinkering with it! Just ask yourself...WWAD? (What would Anne do?!)
