Hit or Mrs. – Bring out your mildly wild side

Today I bring to you the wild giraffe…

Hit or Mrs. - Subtle dip-dye
I honeslty was going for it when I did this over the weekend, but somehow it came out less-than exciting.

Hit or Mrs. – Summer Hair
I think these girls have got summer hair just right! We met Kate & Bailey at the taping of The X Factor & thought their hair (feather extensions & deconstructed braid) was worth a post.

Hit or Mrs. – My Annual Handbag
 
I’m a once-a-year-handbag kinda girl. I typically purchase a new bag every spring, but somehow missed it this year & am finding myself dreaming over the new fall line-up featured at Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale.
 After much scrutiny, I have narrowed my options down to 6 purses & would love some feedback!
Last minute entry! I have been searching for the perfect blue bag sine last year. Could this be it? Dooney & Bourke Bubble Cross Body

Hit or Mrs. – Dip-dye or not?
 
I have been thinking through this for about a week now & just can’t decide if I should or how I should dip-dye my hair. I love Lauren Conrad’s new hair (pictured above), but am not sure I could pull it off.
 
I would love your opinion on if & how I should go for this look…

Hit or Mrs. – Pink Pants
 
So I really can’t take any credit for this outfit since I really just recreated a recent @Refinery29 post. It’s a great option for our less than sweltering summer here in Seattle.
 
Only thing I’ve really modified is to make it slightly more work appropriate (ie. buttoned up a bit). I think it’s a great outfit for a cool summer & I’m totally digging loose breezy shirts. I have my hair thrown into a easy-messy bun to keep this extra casual-cool. 
 
What I’m wearing:
Gap lightweight oxford shirt
Gap crop pants
Bass oxford shoes
Earrings & bracelets by DKNY
