There’s That Lady With The Black Hair

There’s more to say on transitioning to my natural hair color (which is black) over the pandemic. One day soon I’ll get to it. But for the most part, I guess I’ve been wearing wraps and scarves so long, that my hair was still a shock to many (including my children). Truth be told, at times it’s still a shock for me as well.

In celebration of letting it all out and down a bit, I tried my hand at darker pants, a wide top and classic loafers. Of course, I couldn’t forget a pop of color, so I stole River’s purse for kicks.

Here’s more if you’d like to see:

Has your style or your hair transitioned over the last year and a half? Are you seeing old friends again and shocking them? Would love to hear!

My pants are old Ace & Jig (similar here), Oversized Poplin Shirt (similar here), Vintage silk scarf, Vintage COACH bag, and J.Crew Loafers.

    Yes! I have been cutting my own hair – which means I’ve trimmed it once since the pandemic started 🙂 I also stopped coloring my hair about 2 years ago, so my natural, darker color is almost completely grown in. everyone is so shocked at how long and dark it is! Change is beautiful!

      love that Emily! I’ve been trimming my hair every time I wash it in the pandemic, and that’s been what has gotten the blonde out. But I think it’s still shocking. It’s mostly shocking me how fast it grows back and how thick!

      Yay for transitions

    Love this! So much of our identity is in hair. I’ve also stopped coloring and have been transitioning to my natural salt and pepper, silver hair because I want accept myself as I really am at 45 years old!

    A few years ago I snipped off all the blonde highlights on my black hair. Everyone was like, wow you look so different! I just remember really liking the way I looked, especially after so many years of colouring my hair.

    And now grey hairs are coming in at a fast rate and I’m starting to love the transition. I love when I can embrace the fact that change is always in the air.
