messy hair + a knotted necklace.

It was a muted lip + messy hair + knotted necklace kind of Tuesday. I am all about the organic look with one (non-subtle) pop of color.

black pantsuits.

Pantsuits can be a major hit or miss, yet they are extremely flattering if they accentuate the right places.  Fitting adjectives:  super classy and crazy chic. Sport this major spring trend with me! P.S. {pop the look with a bright earring}.

let’s talk hair.

Growing up, my sister and I always naturally split the roles: I did the hair; she did the makeup. In fact, when we moved apart, I slightly panicked wondering if I could break from my dependence on her artistic abilities. In the hair realm, Britt’s signature was the ‘throw it up in a pony tail,’ and mine was always the ’round-brushed always down’ look. {styling hair truly became a passion of mine}. I rarely branch out of that organic, naturally straight or beach waved look, but I am inspired by those that do. #stuckinmycomfortzone || All that to say, after many trials and errors, these are the hair products that are now my live with-outs.

From the shampoo I use to the spray-in conditioner and finishing spray (that smells divine + handles friz), these have added so much health to my locks. They have truly protected it from heat damage + enlivened my blonde. Not to mention, these make my hair thick + shiny + soft (but not too unable-to-style soft). Also, I showed two different hair sprays I use in the scroll below: the Moroccan oil is my day time spray; it keeps my hair in place without constricting the movement. The Kerastase is my night time spray; it is a bit stronger and provides the perfect amount of hold.

essie stole my heart.

Getting a mani is such a relaxing treat + it is quite an addition to your look. Your nails can truly set the tone of any ensemble + it really can brighten up any day. {here are some of my favorites right now}. What are yours? xo
