Stripes and Fringe (Plus How I Styled my Hair!)

Hey, Y’all!

I don’t know about you guys, but I am totally obsessed with this look! I’m really digging the whole casual-cool vibe. My favorite thing about this laid-back look has got to be my Birkenstocks. I’m totally obsessed with them right now! Once you break them in, they’re probably some of the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever own. Although my mother isn’t the biggest fan of these strappy sandals, they’re totally trendy, and I am loving them! They compliment the effortless style of this outfit so well!

To complete the casual vibe, I decided to try some messy waves. It was actually pretty simple. I braided my wet head into two french braids, wore them the entire day, and slept in them. When I woke up, I undid the braids, and viola! I had perfectly tousled waves! There were several strands that didn’t actually want to cooperate with the rest of my head, so I used a clampless curling wand to curl a few strands of straight hair. It was a pretty simple hairstyle and one I will definitely be trying again!

Messy hairstyles like this one work really well on my hair since it has a natural wave. Wearing it like this all the time, though, leaves my hair lifeless. Hairstyles that use lots of gel and hairspray strip my locks of their shine, so I use lots of different oils. Argan oils are my favorite! You can apply the oils to damp or dry hair, but make sure you only use a small amount. Using too much, will make your hair greasy. 

I’ve linked my favorite oil to use here! I’d love to hear what products you other lovely ladies use to tame your mane! Leave a comment below if you’d like to share!

Thanks for stopping by, darlings! Don’t forget to like and follow!

XOXO,

Where to Find Spring/Summer Dresses

Dress from Amazon // Jack Rogers Monogram Sandals // Kate Spade Crossbody Bag // Tiffany and Co. Sunglasses

Hey, Y’all!! 🙂

I’m super excited to share this darling dress I purchased on Amazon! The gorgeous floral print makes it a perfect spring staple. Who doesn’t love a good floral print in the spring? I love it because it can be worn so many different ways. It’s perfect with sandals for a casual look, or you can dress it up with heels and a light sweater. I have a pair of hot pink heels that it looks oh-so-adorable with!

Amazon has a ton of cute dresses like this one! I believe I’ve mentioned that before on my blog, but everyone keeps asking where I find such adorable, frilly frocks. I find most of my dresses online. I don’t do a lot of actual shopping, but I make up for that with my online shopping addiction. Some sites I frequent for cute dresses and skirts are Amazon, the Klassy Girl Boutique, Chic Wish, and SheIn (SheIn is absolutely awesome, but they ship from China. You have to wait at least 2-4 weeks before your package arrives which is kind of a bummer!).

Other than my online shopping addiction, I’m also addicted to thrifting! I’ve found some adorable vintage pieces shopping at Goodwill and many different consignment shops. Just check out these posts: Channeling my Inner Jackie O and Vintage Embroidery Dress. If I’m not mistaken, I found both of these classic dresses at my local Goodwill and the straw tote at another local thrift store! Ladies, you can never go wrong at Goodwill. That’s my motto!

Well, folks… That wraps things up for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Click the links below to follow me on Instagram or Facebook. I made a Facebook page, so don’t forget to like it! Also, you can type in your email and hit follow below to subscribe to my blog. Until next time, dolls!

XOXO,
