Two Pieces, Three Ways: Look Two

detailsLook two is a signifanctly more laid back way of styling the skirt seen in look one. The slouchy sweatshirt top (similar) takes the skirt down a notch, making this a perfect look for brunch with friends or even a causal day at the office.grey sweatershirt and floral pencil skirt

Surfin’ USA

surfboard sweater and orange shortsI agonized over whether to call this post ‘surfbort’ or ‘surfin’ USA’. In the end, the Beach Boys won over Beyonce because I felt that the Beach Boys meshed better with this all-America ‘fit.

Yes, blog titles are something to agonize over. Developing appropriate titles is a legitimate concern, peeps.

Giveaway: Summer Hair Makeover

I recently got my hair cut at the Janet Waddell Salon in Gramercy, NYC. Thea, my amazing stylist, gave me a chic and totally wearable lob (aka a long bob) that is perfect for summer.

I think we have all had experiences where we tell our stylist one thing, but then they are all like, “I know what will look good on you, trust me.” And you end up with this crazy haircut where you look like a poorly groomed poodle.

The stylists at Janet Waddell truly listen, but they also make great suggestions. For example, I wanted to get bangs again, but I was worried about the maintenance. My stylist Thea suggested side swiped bangs that are much more forgiving and easier to care for than a blunt fringe.

So get excited. I am giving one lucky reader a $100 gift card you can use for a summer haircut at Janet Waddell Salon!

Here’s how to enter:

1.Like Janet Waddell Salon and Thea for Hair on Facebook

2. Follow @janetwaddellnyc on Twitter and Instagram

3. Comment on the below detailing your WORST haircut story. Or can link to a photo. Here’s mine.

Note: This giveaway is for US only as the salon is in NYC. I will randomly select a winner next Monday.

Summer Weekends

cropped top full skirtIt’s finally summer in NYC! Can I get a ‘woot woot!!’? Summer weather means loooong walks in the hot sun. I think we all know that crop tops are a new favorite of mine, but Keds are also coming in handy. No blistery feet for this gal!

It’s too early for shorts.

shortsI am so excited that we have gotten some warm days lately — but there is one problem. Premature shorts. I find it a bit annoying when people wear shorts based on the time of year, instead of the actual weather.

But this year I get the whole premature shorts thing. It has been a long and trecherous road to spring, y’all. So if you wanna wear shorts, I say go for it! Here is way to style your premature shorts so they’re appropriate for the weather.
