We are in the string of August days where some of my old favorite entertainers have their birthdays – Aug 7 = David Duchovny, Aug 8 = JC Chasez and Aug 9 = GIllian Anderson. It’s been ten years since I was a big XFiles and NSYNC fan, but somehow, these days are drilled into my head. Happy birthdays, guys!
JCrew tank, Mossimo skater skirt, ANA tied cardigan, xo pendant necklace, Forever 21 flower, White Cliff flats
I love how this came out! I got this top from a friend who was clearing out her closet and I don’t know why I don’t wear it. It’s adorable.
Anthropologie Loosened Shelby blouse, Lily Pulitzer floral skirt, BP cardigan, Aerosole wedge sandals
This one is a bit risky with the pattern mixing, but I like it. The elements are about the same size, and the green of the top is an accent in the skirt. I think it’s working. (And if it’s not, don’t tell me; I’m leaving for work in 20!)
I’ve been growing my hair out this summer to give myself the opportunity to play with it and be creative. Which, of course, basically translates into pinning it up and short, ha! Funny how that works. But I’ve really been enjoying it, even though I don’t like at all how it looks down. This is what I’ve been doing lately:
Of course the tucking on the right fell out a few hours later, since it was ponytail based. I redid it with a braid and looped and pinned it, and that lasted perfectly the rest of the day, straight through my Zumba class.
Next up: I’m going to try braiding/twisting the sides into a braided knot, and maybe two French braids. I love having options.
