Blue Birthday Party

So there was this one time I dyed my hair ombre blue...

Yup! I am now a crazy haired lady. After wanting to dye my hair blue since I was in high school, for over a decade, I took the plunge. I now have blonde hair with the tips ombred from teal to dark blue (although in person it looks mostly teal).


Since I was feeling a lot better than I have, I decided to have an early birthday dinner with friends. Drinking after was part of the plan, but I wasn't up for that. I'm still coughing a lot and have no energy. So dinner was plenty for me and i had a great time! Here's what I wore. A blue dress to compliment my hair ;)


And my wonderful sorority sisters were there to celebrate with me! And a Sig Ep ;) The first picture is of me and my great friend Kathrin - who just started a blog called Shop.School.Sleep. check her out! Next is me and my friend Anthony. He's crazy and insisted on a prom pose. Then the bottom pic is of my Delta Zeta sisters. We've come a long way from drinking on fraternity row to calm, non-alcoholic dinners. The two wonderful ladies on each end are currently pregnant!


And me with my birthday treat! My actual birthday is next Sunday and I'll be in San Diego celebrating. Many more birthday pictures to come!

Way to rock that hair! I was so glad that you had posted about your teal ombre hair since you mentioned it in your comment! I was getting anxious to see how it turned out!

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said...

Love love love your hair! Your blue dress is adorable too, love how your hair matched. Happy early birthday!

Leesh said...

I love your hair. It reminds me of when I did mine blue and teal. There's a huge difference with how it looks with dark and light hair.

I joined your weekend update for the first time!

Kelly said...

I looooooooooooooove your blue hair!! Looks AWESOME :-) Glad you had a great birthday weekend!!

Marz said...

I loved looking at all your early birthday pics!! Blue suits you!! Your hair, your dress - you look so gorgeous!!! Micaela and I always wanted to dye our hairs a dark, dark blue that we would still have our naturally black hair, but in the light it would look a dark blue like Veronica from the Archie comics! haha I always see pics of girls with pink or blue hair on pintrest or on celebs like Katy Perry and always get hair envy! That's what I experience when I see you and your pretty tips! So glad you're feeling better and were able to enjoy your weekend with friends! The prom pic is ADORABLE! haha good idea on your friend's part ;) Happy Early Birthday sweet girl! xoxo

Lacey said...

What a fun weekend! Love all your pictures you captured while celebrating your birthday early! And I'm not brave enough to do the ombre effect on my hair but I LOVE it! Especially since it's blue- so awesome!

Megan G. said...

YAY for blue hair, it looks so super awesome!!!! I had some pink streaks in my hair my sophomore year of college, it's so fun to have colorful hair!! :)

By the way, I just love everything about your birthday dinner outfit. You look so awesome!!
