I know summer is almost over, but when it’s hot I never want to do my hair. I love the look of relaxed beachy waves but don’t always want to heat style my hair…. so, when all else fails I reach for some beach spray. It’s best when you work it through wet to damp hair, scrunch and let air dry. But if you’re in a hurry a diffuser will also do the job.
I have stick straight hair and all four of those products will give me a relaxed wave. But I started thinking, this can’t be too hard to make yourself, right? Guess what? It’s not. Here’s a super easy and cheap recipe to try. continue reading
I bought this necklace the other day, then when I got home I realized how perfectly it matched my neon sandals. Of course I had to wear them together so I paired them with this blouse for a more classic look.
I think I’ve worn these white shorts at least once a week this whole summer, which is why you’ve seen them so many times! I can’t help it, they just go with everything so well. The past few weeks have been sooooooooo hot. And humid. It’s nearly impossible to wear my hair down for long periods of time. Luckily ponytails and top knots look chic while keeping my hair off me! continue reading
I went down to Orange County for my high school reunion Saturday night. It was lots of fun catching up with classmates and laughing with my girl friends. I wanted to stay cool (its been ridiculously hot) and look beach chic since the reunion was held at the Balboa Yacht Club.
I borrowed this dress from my wardrobe department and loved the way the green looked next to the water. It was such a comfortable dress which was good because my heels sure weren’t!
I’m seriously addicted to lace and crochet dresses and tops and I can’t stop buying them. I spotted this dress at h&m last week and knew it would be coming home with me before I even tried it on. I had a hard time choosing between the black, white and teal but finally settled on black because it will transition the best through summer. I have visions of wearing it in the fall with flat brown boots and in the winter with tights and heels. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of it on here. continue reading
Sometimes its not about the clothes as much as the accessories and I truly believe that accessories can make a look. They can also drastically change an outfit while putting your own stamp on your look.
