Blonde in 2013?

First of all...HAPPY NEW YEARS FRIENDS! I just wanted to start out by thanking each one of you who read my blog. I don't always have time to reply, but I read each and every comment, each and every email, and I appreciate all your support, questions, and compliments. YOU ARE AWESOME! The Dime Diary has had an awesome first year and I am excited to continue to watch it grow:) Thank you for letting me share my life, family, and clothes with you!

So for about a month or so I have been tossing around the idea of going "blonde" for this upcoming summer. All my life I have had dark hair, almost black, and the most I have ever experimented with it has been caramel colored highlights/ombre. I really want a fun change for this year and I don't want to cut my hair again, so I decided that I want to try going blonde! Now I'm not talking platinum blonde or anything like that, I am talking a dirty blonde with highlights in it.

This will be a huge change for me since I have never EVER tried blonde, and I know it will require a lot of work and money, but I think I am ready to try it out. Before I do though, I wanted to get some opinions on how I would look with that!

Here are some pictures of the color I'm imagining. Let me know what you think, I would love to hear it!


  1. I like those colors. I have med brown color. I dont' really like it. I tried going darker. I love it dark but the color melts away within two weeks so I've been getting blond and carmel added in hopes of just going more blond since that's the only color my hair will hold. So good luck! I'm trying the same process.

  2. The first picture is gorgeous! I know you could pull it off and look beautiful!

  3. I'm just a few weeks away from finishing hair school in Idaho and I think the second color is gorgeous! I think it would look so pretty with your skin tone also. Thanks for writing this blog I get a lot of inspiration from your fashion and I love reading each time you post!


  4. I think it would look great on you! As someone who pays for blonde (I have to go every 5-6 weeks cause my hair grows crazy fast) just keep in mind it is EXPENSIVE!!! :)

  5. eww i love it! i've been considering the opposite! i don't know if i can do it though!

  6. I think you could pull it off! Would you like to follow each other?

    Much Love,

  7. Ooh I think that would look really great! I'm excited to see how it turns out! Medium brown with some highlights would look super awesome.

    Hope you are doing well, lovely!


  8. I looks gorgeous! I bet anything you decided would look gorgeous. I'm with you about the money commitment, though! Once you start it, the upkeep can nickel and dime you. You can do it, though!

  9. I love the inspiration in the photo above! You are a gorgeous face so I think you can definitely pull off blonde especially if you are slowly doing it! I am a lot blonder but I love it, every time I go a tad darker I go back blonde. Good luck and if you do go for it you much share. :) Oh and I emailed you as well!
