i have this thing for redheads

Tuesday, January 25

 My Momma and Dad got me this top from Ruche for my birthday. I kind of love it. Mostly because I saw it on the their model in that stinkin inspiring Fall look book they've got and I thought to myself, well dang. Look at her face! Look at her hair! 
I want my face to look like that.
I want my hair to look like that.
Obviously, I need that shirt.
So I get the shirt right? And I'm jumpin up and down when I open it cause I'm so excited. I rip my clothes off {literally ...rip. I need a seamstress}, throw it on and BAM. I'm fabulous.
I look in the mirror.
Dude ... wheee-re is my big, red, fabulous hair? And where's my new face dangit?!
I was super bummed out.  But ... I got over it.
Cause I do have an amazing shirt on. And holy moley, it's freakin layerable. And husband likes it cause it's silky on his face when he wants to cuddle. So.
Win-win.
Thanks Ruche. And you beyond perfect red-headed model you.{bitter}
I'm gonna go pretend I'm in your look book now.

coffeeandinspiration.com said...

I've totally got a thing for red heads, too! There's just something about them. The hair, the features, the way they make pale skin look cool and not pasty-sick!

Anyway, love the new top. Can't wait to see how else you style it.

Christina said...

That top is amazing. And it looks just as good on blonds! Do you know how many times I wished for blond hair?? I have redish hair by the way. Glad it goes both ways.

Anna Olivia said...

Girls with red hair are awesome. Guys though... eh, not so awesome. Not at all, in fact. =P

Ana* said...

redheads are prettyful but you look gorgeous in the shirt too, the redhead girl might get a little jealous

Nuha said...

the top is so cute! And I have a red head obsession too...I'm hoping someday, some way, some how our kids will be red heads haha!

My Heart Blogged said...

I'm a redhead so I'm a little biased. That shirt is pretty awesome, not gonna lie.

Lo said...

it is my dream to have little red-headed Lucille Ball and Ron Weasley children. if i can't live the dream, may as well live vicariously through my kids. the hubs has a lot of red in his facial hair and his grandma used to be a ginger, so i'm clinging to hope at this point.

p.s. you look adorable...as a blond...with that face.

Eclectic Flair said...

I think you look just as beautiful as that model. In fact, I like your picture more than hers!

Jewelscapes Handmade Jewelry said...

I love my red hair, but still have to wish I looked as amazing as her and YOU! Thanks for the link to the Ruche LOokbook, such inspiring and beautiful photos!

Adorable! Red hair is so gorgeous- like a beautiful permanent accessory! XO

Stephanie said...

being a red head is just a bottle away (kinda like bein' a blonde, just a different bottle. =) i have a feeling your look book modeling days are just around the corner...

Rachael said...

Red hair is so pretty...especially since, a natural redhead, is so rare..those lucky few....
But I love the shirt. Wouldn't have thought of layering it over a long-sleeved button down, but it looks great!

Nicole C said...

Hello, I love your blog!! Seriously, i love your style and your sense of humor! Thank you for the inspiration {i love the boots in these photos!!}

Who needs red hair...you look positively wonderful in the shirt the way you are.

Kristyn said...

My mama is a redhead. I've tried to use my fair skin and freckles for redheaded-ness, but there's only a HINT of it. Alas I'm just more of a brunette.

Maybe you'll have ginger children? Probably not but, who knows!

Melissa said...

life as a redhead kinda rocks. although all through high school all i wanted to be was a blonde!

monster cakes said...

You are wearing gap kids jeans, and this is why I love you. I had to wear gap kids until my sophomore year of high school, and I hated it. Now I am a healthy size 3 (and happy about it), but wouldn't I kill to fit into some kids jeans again?! Which also leaves me wondering why my lady lumps didn't fill in up top like they did the bottom? That's on the "what to ask God when I finally meet him" list. You're too cute girl.

Ash Att said...

i love that shirt! it is so adorable on you! i am a redhead and i have always wanted to be blonde. can we switch? ha
im new to your blog and i love it!

ag. said...

I've got to be honest, I'd rather look like you! Although I do love a good red head too and was always jealous of my sisters hair.

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

YES! I so relate to this, (ha, ha) love that you wrote about it. The top is freakin adorable and it looks fab all layered up. LOVE Ruche! I am actually planning on dying my hair red in the in next couple of weeks. Very excited! xx veronika

MayMade said...

Well I think you look better than the lookbook!

Natosha @ Seven One Six said...

Definitely a gorgeous top!

Corinne Chidester said...

It hilarious: every thought you had about that red-headed model are the thoughts I have about YOU when I see your cute clothes! JEALOUS I am!

Meg said...

Love that story ;) & the top!

I've never shopped Ruche before... I think I might be hooked now... eeeep!

erin said...

i've always loved red heads too, i've almost died my hair 10000+ times, but it just wouldn't be the same! i'm hoping for some red headed daughters to live vicariously through :)

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Gorgeous top and I like how you layered it. That first photo is stunning. Your hubby is quite the photographer!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

ummm except you are WAY prettier than that girl and your hair is cuter, too. love the blowfish shoes!

Bobi said...

I'm sitting here with big curly hair and I'm thinking do you have any clue what amount of time it takes to style my hair to get it straight and sleek like yours?
I promise you can get the color from a bottle and in my opinion your hair is stunning.
Love you style and whoever does your photography is really awesome in my book.

geri e. said...

I begged my hair-doin sissie to give me siren-red hair last spring. She said no because then Jas and I would be Red Rover Red Rover.

Sad!

Anyway, Tyson, that first photo has muy bonito light on the face/hair/everything. I hope you know you're becoming quite the awesome photog. :)

wonderchris said...

Redheads ROCK. Not that I'm biased or anything. ;)

That shirt looks great on you - looking forward to other outfits with it!!

Rissy said...

oh I love the cut of that shirt! I never would have thought to layer it. Guess that's why I read your blog!

Brittany D'Lynne said...

I would have never dreamed to layer that shirt, but it looks amazing. I'm sorry it has no magical qualities to turn you into that red head. I guess that's what hair dye is for. And shooting stars.

Laura Beth said...

You are much more beautiful then the girl in the look book! I assure you of that. In fact, you would probably even look fabulous if you dyed your hair. You've got it going on girl! You can do just about anything!

Ms_SyllyBee said...

LOVE this top! it's lovely. and the fashion world seems to be obsessed with red hair lately... nearly all the s/s ads have a ginger in them! hahah you look lovely just the way you are, sydney!

xo
i wander, i wonder

Lou said...

You don't want that model's face! You are so pretty.

The top looks great, I will be checking out the shop.

Love your blog...

that really is one fabulous top.

Trissta said...

Well, let me tell you, apparently us redheads have a thing for you! :)

AJD ∞ said...

I feel the same way about redheads and fair skin. One of my closest friends has the most beautiful red hair... And she wants to dye it blonde! Don't get me wrong, I love blonde hair, but why would you want to get rid of something as rare and beautiful as red hair?

Cute top, by the way!

RedHeadedStepChild said...

I have huge red hair. Go to my blog, and you'll see it on my home page. Seriously.

You. Don't. Want. It.

I'd love to have normal person hair. Really.

Joanna said...

Yeah, I've always wanted to be a redhead. I'm so jealous of Christina Hendricks from Mad Men - red hair and CURVES to boot!!

Shana said...

I think you look beautiful and this shirt is gorgeous! I love how you layered it...we forget to layer here in Las Vegas but I have you to thank for introducing me to layering clothing! Hopefully I can get my husband to take pictures as well as yours does and if I could only get your poses down! haha Would love your opinion on my blog header! I am doing a small giveaway to help me decide, I am no graphic designer and I am new to this blog thing, but I love meeting so many beautiful inpsiring women, and I have decided to really get into this blogging thing!
Thanks Sydney!!!

I have always wanted to be a red head too! I pray for red headed children, I kid you not! I love the top too! So beautiful and versatile!

Ugne Utkute said...

Yeah, redhead looks great, I also like them, but there are some fails also with girls' hair. :) But this girl in the photo looks really nice. :)

Love the boots! I love my lace-ups. They keep my feet warm on the most freezing days. Like today. January. Chicago.

Love it! I'm always shocked when I wear what the models wear & it's still the same ole me :) I'm pretty sure Ruche would love to have you as their other model though!

fabulously married said...

I think you are much prettier than the red head model. BTW I think if you die your hair red you might just look like her. It's not that hard to go from blond to red, you will actually get the best results.

Vasilieva said...

loved that tee on top of a shirt, nice pattern

You are way more beautiful than the red heard Sydney.

Amy G. said...

I was just thinking about doing a post about how I love red hair! I think I still will anyways, but yes I wish that I had red hair sometimes.

Pixie in Pumps said...

yay for redheads! I was never allowed to dye my hair, which isn't to say I ever wanted to.

that top is beautiful!

Fashion Momma said...

I had ANOTHER blog interview today, where I wanted to wear a shirt that you had and have hair and a face like yours! I commiserate. ;)

quinnhere said...

As a redhead, I appreciate the support :) Seems we get made fun of more than highlighted. Thanks again! Great top!

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

Love the top. Have you ever thoguht about coloring you hair? You would make a pretty red head.

Gaby said...

Love the top! And i know just what you mean - i'm always so disappointed that things don't magically transform me into the model in the picture. p.s. i love that your jeans are from gap kids :)

Ashley said...

i seriously love that you wear jeans from gap kids! I giggle everytime... you tinnny girl!

No Guilt Fashion said...

Love that shirt. I think you had a stroke of genius styling it with the white Oxford shirt.
P.S. I've got a thing for redheads too. I'm going back to red in the next couple weeks.

Human Sparkler ♥ said...

dang girl! your site has grown so freakin' fast! I started following you back in the day when you only had like 300 followers and now its boomin'! You are too cute. I love love love your take on the lookbook!

you don't need a new face, silly, you're absolutely GORGEOUS!

{although, i AM a little partial to red hair... probably because i'm a redhead myself ;)}

Belle said...

I really like your shirt.
I also love red heads. I am always just that much more attracted to red headed males. I dont know why.

Priscilla Natalie said...

So sweet ♥

Elisabeth said...

I love being a red head :)
When you are a redhead.. it's not really just a hair color anymore its who you are and who people think of you as. I'm not just Elisabeth, I'm that redhead Elisabeth.
Weird.
But great!

You could totally be in their lookbook. and now that I think about it, I think I have a thing for red heads too. weird, hu?

love your blog, it's very entertaining :)

Brittany said...

love the layering. and that red lipstick is a particularly wonderful red. what are you wearing??

Ana said...

I just took a glance at the look book, and I have to agree, she looks gorgeous in those photos....how can a girl still be happy with her hair after having seen hers?!?
Then again, I think your outfit is very lovely, and more than makes up for it :p! Great inspiration for winter dressing a.k.a lots of layering!

M said...

come on. what are you talking about?! you're simply gorgeous!! and love the shirt too by the way.

A+M+S said...

I think you look great as a blond and a brunette :) not many ppl could pull off both!!

my red hair is the one thing i like about myself. it's definately unique.

genevieve, sandbox romance said...

Syd, you never fail to max out in the adorable department. Loving this.

So, quickie question. I've noticed you wear Gap Kid's jeans a few times. If you don't mind my asking, how tall are you? I'm curious as to whether or not I'd be able to rock the kid's section, too!

Shannon said...

So I love your blog. I came over from a good life blog because she linked to you. I am sure your stats show me being on your blog for hours because I was trying to catch up. Totally not a stalker, but I love your style and photography. I also love that you and your husband have such a great marriage. :)

I like your awkward/awesome Thursdays, too. I need to link-up.

I'm not sure if you participate in blog link-ups, but I'm starting to do a few of my favorite things on Fridays and would love for you to link-up.

Have a great week!

Shannon said...

Oh, and the whole reason I wanted to comment on this post: I love redheads, too. I even married one. I have always wished for red hair.

Katie W... said...

Ok... That model is unreal. She must be plastic and modeled after every beautiful feature that currently exists...

Therefore, fake model = ehhh but Sydney = lovely. I love the layers and your red lips!

Dana Richards said...

Oh man. I seriously seriously love redheads.

Berrygetto said...

I love being a redhead...but I dont have fabulous hair like that
:( but that is a super cute top and really looks awesome layered.

Futurelint said...

That top is super cute on you and I love the casual layering! I have curly red hair, and while I wouldn't change it now, it was annoying growing up! Old ladies would pet me in stores and a little boy in first grade told me my hair was red because I ate carrots every day (which i did - until he told me that!) I like it now, but it's still annoying because it looks silly with some colors of clothing (like pink!)

Angie said...

Well I too love a redhead. Could be because my daughter, mother, grandmother and all my aunts and uncles ARE redheads!? ;) Either way, you look fantastic in the shirt! ;)

shopruche.com said...

You are too funny Sydney! You make an adorable model btw!
