What could be better than a maxi and a great necklace? Or, as Unusual Form likes to call them, Lankets - aka blanks for your legs! I will take a maxi skirt/dress any day of the week - especially if it is soft and flowy, as this one is. I bought it a few summers ago on clearance at Target and loved it so much that I bought it in another color (same print, but greens). This one happens to be a halter dress so I have to layer it up in order to make it work appropriate.
Also, if you remember correctly, I am currently (trying to) embracing messy hair. I've learned that doing such is 100% easier when my bangs are short and blunt. I cannot handle messy bangs and therefore cannot handle growing my bangs out. I don't even know why I try because I prefer having short, blunt bangs! I crave change but then march right back to my usual. Do you go through this ebb and flow too?
I have found a star player in embracing messy hair! Spin Pins from Goody are God's gift for easy hair. I've seen a lot said about them the past few months but never thought about using them myself. I have very baby soft, thin hair that tends to fall out of any sort of hair holder/curl/etc, so these types of hair products don't usually apply to me. Then, lo and behold, I received a package in a swag bag from Kaboodle and decided to give them a try. Do yourself a favor - GIVE THEM A TRY! The two pins that come in a package hold my bun together easy peasy. All I do is twist my hair (when damp - this just works better for me and my hair) into a bun and then twirl the pins into it. Done. This is my hair at the end of the day. I know there are bits falling out but keep in mind my hair is pretty still pretty short.
Oh! And I can't forget to show you my necklace! It was a total impulse buy at Walmart a few years ago around Christmas time. It is quite a statement piece but it's not too loud thanks to its dark colors. I think it brought this outfit up a notch, don't you?
How was your Monday?
