The has been one of my favorite "go to" casual outfits. I bought the jeans (which have awesome zippers on the sides) at Forever 21 for around $20 and the shirt around the same.
The boots I borrowed from my sister Maddy along with the kaki green military jacket.
I have been a proud supporter of the top knot lately. I have been cheating and using a rolled sock with the toe cut off to make my bun fuller. I tucked my hair over the sock and under my ponytail and wa-lah!
I was having a hard time deciding which of my pages to post this on. I decided TWO; thats right if you saw this on my "My Nest" page too you are not going crazy.
Alright so this is a little unorthodox for this page because its baby fashion instead of women's fashion but it is just too darn cute. I recently bought this outfit for my best friend, Bri, who is pregnant with her first.
She loves Def Leppard, actually they are her favorite band. I couldn't help myself when I found this onsie so I splurged at go it for $25 from Amazon (including shipping).
I lucked out and found these adorable tan pants at Old Navy for $5.00 and these Van-look-a-likes at Walmart for $5 as well.
Add it all together and you get one stud-ly 80s Rocker baby.
Bringing out an older picture today for some causal outfit inspiration!
This picture is from a photo session with my sister TyRee that we did for fun. I wore my hot pink plaid collared button down with my MissMe jeans.
I'm a little spoiled by my sweet husband; he bought me the fancy jeans! Such a sweetheart.
Getting back on track...
For my hair, I took advantage of my wild bed head hair waves. I added a couple extra curls as needed with my straightener and then bobby pinned my bangs into a large poof.
I love getting the excuse to dress up!
Tonight I had an celebratory dinner for getting an award at work. Since there where only three of us that won this time we decided to splurge and treat ourselves to Tepanyaki Japanese Steakhouse.
YUM! I melt thinking of the food...and I just finished eating it!
The chefs are awesome too; they cook in front of you. I almost caught the shrimp tossed at me, almost.
I was still feeling like jeans but wanted to dress it up so I went with my purple skinny jeans.
I paired with a black and white striped tank, white cardigan (another birthday purchase), and black heels. These are my favorite heels. They rock!
This is a flash back to one of Bri (my best friend) and my first videos. We make music videos all the time just for fun. Its a blast!
I decided to post this picture because I'm wearing my favorite rocker accessory; my black moccasin boots.
I paired them with a black band tee, some cool jeans and lots of bangles.
I also had some much fun hair that summer as well. I bleached my hair line, forehead to nap of neck. I looked even cooler pulled up. It was a lot of up-keep though!
I've decided I will let the picture do most of the talking on this post,
I will however note that I realize necklace is spelled wrong.
Not changing it now.
My mind doesn't work on Saturdays...
I got my faux leather leggings on Amazon for $14!
I love the edgy zipper on the side and they go with basically everything.
As promised, my "curling with your straightener" tutorial...
1. You'll want to use relatively small pieces of hair to allow the heat of the straightener work its way through.
Also if you feeling overwhelmed with hair everywhere, tie up the sections of your hair you are not currently working with. Much better, no?
2. Get your straightener on that baby, start as close to your scalp as your comfortable with. Don't burn yourself!
Again, little pieces at a time.
3. Turn your straightener to a bend & slowly pull away from your scalp to your tips.
4. Continue until you've got a luscious head of curls to your liking.
Notes: Depending on the angle you hold the straighter will depend on how loose/tight curls you have.
The angle I chose here gave me pretty loose curls [figure 4]
If you want really tight curls you will want you straightener to be parallel with the floor.
In the same respect if you want really loose beachy waves you will almost want your straightener vertical.
You can also choose to bend your straightener towards your mirror or away; This will determine the way your curl goes.
