The Golden Maxi

30 June 2015

Ok, there's no shortage of maxi dresses in my closet so you're no surprised that I brought home another one. Now, this one I'm still on the fence with it but so far (the whole one whopping wear I've gotten out of it} it seems ok. I think it might blend a little too much with the hair...

Do we love it or hate it?

Summer Essential: The Fun Jumpsuit

29 June 2015

When it comes to summer dressing I have a weakness for a pieces with movement and flow. There's just something bout walking down the sidewalk and watching your fabric flow with you. It's beautiful. 

So, once the sun comes out I find myself leaning towards floaty dresses, skirts and most recently this Aryn K jumpsuit. THIS JUMPSUIT GUYS. Truth be told I was a little nervous when I first tried it on, but after a few additions in the accessories department I've quickly fallen in love with it. It's effortless, and it has the flow, in the best possible way. Immediately making it a summer essential...

Cashmere and Lace

26 June 2015

I know what you're thinking, cashmere in the summer, really? Yeah, me too. But, a couple weeks back we had a cold snap and we're in the 60's which meant I clearly needed to bring out the cashmere sweater one last time before parting with it for the next several months. It was a sign and I went for it. I'm not going to lie, I adore it with this lace pencil skirt - which by the way turns out goes with just about everything.

For The Home: Remodo

25 June 2015

Since our home decor re-hash kicked off I've been looking for a fun pair of pillows to spice up our couch. There's just something about our grey couch against the bright wall that just isn't doing it for me. {Don't tell David!} I love the wall but the couch just might not be the best fit, so for now, spicing things up with fun prints and color doesn't hurt. When I found remodo, who is killing it the boxed bedrooms department by the way (seriously guys, they're awesome), I knew I stumbled on something great. I'm obsessed with their prints, textures and colors. They even have boxed gallery walls, which is nothing short of genius if you ask me - Hey remodo, I want one! 

Anyhow, I was most inspired by the B&W II Pillows and knew they would do the job, and then some. I love the subtle print with the classic color scheme especially paired with our bold throw. One project down, only {what seems like} 100 more.

Rainbow Stripes

24 June 2015

While I wouldn't say this isn't my favorite outfit I will definitely say there is no shortage in color. I actually have been off and on with the wearability of this dress, while I love love the colors and playful nature of the dress I've found it's kind of tricky to pair in the shoe department.  For now these sandals fit the bill.

Loose Side Braid & Waves

23 June 2015

When it comes to summer hair I like to stretch the time between washes as often and for as long as possible. So, naturally I rely on certain styles to help me maintain that and braids find themselves at the top of the list. I am partial to a side braid with loose waves. for two reasons. One, it hides my 'problem area' (aka greasy bangs); and two, it is ridiculously easy to create.  A simple, fun twist on a summer classic. 

So,  this week I've teamed up with Suave to share with you how I create my summer go to hairstyle in as little as three to four steps, check it out! 


Summer Side Braid & Loose Waves

2. Next, grab a few pieces at the top of your head, separate and start to braid. Continue adding pieces to the braid from the sides all the way down. Pin back.

3. Loosely pull at the outer braid pieces to give them more volume and texture. 

4. Give your hair a once over with a 1" styling wand for loose, undone waves. 

Voila! A fabulous side braid paired with loose waves to make stretching your hair a day or two longer look fabulous.
