BEAUTY // Textured Waves with Garnier

Garnier Texture Tease Hair

Loose, big waves is my signature hairstyle and in the summer especially it’s almost too easy to do. My hair has a natural wave to it and I typically let my hair airdry so it doesn’t get too fried between the sun exposure, curling tools, and hair dryers. If there’s one thing I can’t stand though, it’s limp hair – the bigger the better if you ask me! So when Garnier reached out to me about a few hair styling opportunities involving texturizing products, I was all for trying them out. This particular product, to me, is perfect for texturizing your hair so it doesn’t look “too perfect”. See my steps below:

TA-DA! Super easy. This whole hairstyle took me less than 10 minutes and the best part is it doesn’t have to be perfect – it’s ideal for days you just can’t spend loads of time styling your hair, or want something chic and polished on the fly. Let me know if you try it out! You can also pin your favorite hairstyle using the hashtag #GARNIERSWEEPS to be entered to win a $500 gift card! View the details in the graphic below.

My Lou & Grey pieces are some of my favorite in my closet and the ones I wear the most. They’re so easy to throw on and wear and with the basic colors, stripes, and styles they can be worn any way. I’ve worn this white one this way and also with my Jack Rogers sandals for errands and what not. Lou & Grey is also having a major end of season sale  with tons of items 40-50% off their original price tags. You can scoop up my favorite striped dress for 50% off, this swing dress for 50% off, and this long sleeve romper that’s great for transitioning into fall! You can also shop more of my favorite pieces on sale below. Happy Monday!

The past week has been unusually ‘chilly’ for August with daytime temps in the lower 70′s and it getting even into the 50′s at night. I’m by no means ready to dress for fall yet, but a light, loose poncho sweater like this did the trick yesterday when it was cloudy out. I was feeling my inner Bohemian girl/festival style! I paired it with these new flat booties that I’ve been wanting to wear. They are SO comfy + come in everything from leopard to metallic too! I have been prepping all week for my Fashion Week trip that’s coming up in just a week and a half – I can’t believe it’s already that time again! I have some fun projects in the works planned for the next few weeks so be sure to follow along!

Happy Weekend!

Fall Transition Pieces - Blue Black and Gray

ROMPER // BAG // RING // BOOTIES

I’ve been ‘shopping around’ online the past week or so trying to figure out what I am loving for the next few months.. September is coming up fast (less than two weeks away!) and it’s always a hard month to dress for. The temps are cooler in the morning + evening but still warmer during the day. I’ve decided that easy pieces + layers, that are still cool enough for warmer days, with some fall-ish touches will do the trick! I am really drawn to grays, blues, and of course black + white right now. I got this Rag+Bone fedora and am so excited for it to come in the mail. It would be perfect paired with a patterned shift dress and some strappy heels! Rompers are also still totally acceptable to wear in September. Pair them with a season-forward shoe, like these perforated Sole Society booties (also got them!) with a pop of color in your handbag - can you believe this blue one is only $72? It looks so much like the Reed Krakoff!

Happy Shopping + Happy Wednesday!
