HAIRSIRATION: BOHO DOUBLE BUN UP-DO




I don't know about you, but I tend to get in hair ruts.  Like most girls, I much prefer my hair down and styled.  The problem is I only like to wash my hair a few days a week, so I have to come up with styles that work for 2nd or 3rd day hair.  

Last week, I randomly threw my hair up in these messy buns and loved how it turned out.  I think the fact that my hair was "dirty" added enough texture to allow it to hold and create that "piecey" boho look. I pulled a few pieces out in the front and around my face to give it more of a laid back feel.  What is you go to "dirty" hair routine?

This kimono is one of those pieces that I grab when I don't know what to wear but still want to wear something interesting. It does all the talking.  I can throw it over almost anything and have a instant outfit.  This outfit I wore last week when Ken and I met up for weekday drinks.  It was perfect for a warm summers evening on the patio.

FEMININE TIE DYE


tie dye, girly, converse, tiger necklace, nixon watch,
Top - Vintage
Skirt - Forever 21
Watch - Nixon
Sunglasses - Raybans

I don't know what provoked me put these pieces of clothing together.  I had been trying on a few random things from my closet (trying to shop my own closet recently), and happened to put this together. There was something about it I really liked.   It's feminine because of the mini skirt, causal because of the converse and the tie dye is a little boho. There is a lot going on, but I think it somehow works. What do you think? yay or nay? The boyfriend was a definite NAY! Haha…

THE BEST OF NEUTRAL CROSSBODY BAGS

Neutral crossbody bags

Chanel Dupe from Forever21 - $24.50! / Deadly Peonies Basic / Marc Jacobs Plaid / Tory Burch Pony PrintChristian Louboutin Studded Mini / 3.1 Philip Lim / Rebecca Minkoff Black Crossbody

Lately, all I've been wearing/buying are cross body bags.  They are SO comfortable and leave you hands free when shopping, which is always a good thing.  If I could convince myself of a few more overtime shifts, these are a few of the bags I'd be looking at splurging on.  I'm dying for the Forever 21 bag in the top left corner but it has been out of stock in Canada for ages.  Im determined to make it mine so I'll just have to keep stalking the site
