blonde hair don't care.


Hey everyone! 

I’ve been wanting to do a post for the hair care products I frequently use. Some are specific to blondes and others aren’t. While my hair is naturally as blonde as it is, it’s hard to maintain. Even my shower water causes build up, which makes my hair look green. Not cute. 
The whole John Frieda Sheer Blonde line has really been helping with that. I also use the Paul Mitchell Clarifying shampoo about once a week too to really deep clean. And to round out the whole collection, I also use the Sheer Blonde hairspray. I don’t use hairspray a whole lot, so I can’t rave too much about it. 
It does the job and smells great :) 

My hair also gets really tangled (s/o to my Wet Brush for conquering them). Oh they’re terrible, my hair dresser probably cringes when I walk through the door. But to make it easier, I seriously bring my Wet Brush with me to appointments. Yeah, it’s bad. So when I get out of the shower I either like to use the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil or Wella Luxe Oil before running my brush through my hair. Both smell amazing and both make your hair super soft. I don’t use them at the same time, just because I feel like it would be too much product for my hair. However both are good options for healthy looking hair. 

Lastly, everyone needs some dry shampoo handy. I’ve been using Not Your Mother’s and I like it. Granted I don’t use it a lot, but it’s so nice to have on hand for the occasional refresher. If this doesn’t cut it, I use baby powder (perks of being blonde). 

I know this was kind of a lot, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

love is in the air.





 Dress: Hello Fab |  Shoes: Target (similar| Sunnies: Amazon (knockoffs for Karen Walker Super Duper|  Purse: Old Navy |  Watch: Jord (mine is the Fieldcrest in maple)

 I recently wore this dress to a dear friend’s wedding. I bought it a while back via Hello Fab’s Instagram. Yes, you know it’s an impulse buy when

you order something on Instagram. But it was too cute to pass up. 

I’ve been holding it in my closet waiting for the right moment to wear it and what better time to wear it than a summer wedding? 

I was originally going to wear it with these flats because it was going to be an outdoor wedding. However (sadly) due to rain, I wore wedges since it was inside. Either way, this dress speaks for itself on how cute it is!

be gorgeous.





Dress, Vest, and Shoes are all from MarGorgeous Boutique (contact info for ordering on FB page) | Sunnies: Amazon (knockoffs for Karen Walker Super Duper)

This is my first collaborative post with cutest boutique in my hometown of Springfield, MO. MarGorgeous was opened by a friend of mine from high school and I adore everything in her store. 
Tomorrow, June, 20th, is the grand opening and I urge everyone around the area to stop by! 

For this look, I chose to pair this patterned dress with this fun crochet vest. It's the perfect summer look for dinner with friends, a concert, or music festival. Be on the look out for more collaborations and check them out on FB while you're at it. 

TGIF!

sweet summertime.






Top: Chaps (old; similar here and here| Shorts: F21 (similar| Headband: Margorgeous Boutique (store contact on FB page!) | Sunglasses: Rayban (in blue) Watch: Jord (mine is the Fieldcrest in maple) | Shoes: Target (similar)

I don't know how else to describe this look other than that I would wear it everyday if I could. These shorts are actually my go-to summer staple and I pair them with almost everything. For this look, I kept it simple with the blue and white theme to tie my headband into the whole look. As I mentioned in my last post, I love wearing headbands in the summer to help keep my hair in check. The humidity can be brutal! 
I topped off the look with some Raybans and my Jord watch (which I told you would be a summer staple).

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

white out.





Top: American Eagle  Jeans: American Eagle | Heels: Lauren Conrad (similar | Bag: Old Navy  | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban (in blue)  | Headband: Francesca's (similar| Watch: Jord (mine is the Fieldcrest in Maple)

I love the look of an all white outfit. I love white in general for summer because it’s crisp and cool. I got this tank recently and I’m obsessed. It’s the same super soft material my dress was in my last post. I’ve been wearing it repeatedly styled in many different ways, so it will probably continue to make an appearance this summer. 

I also love headbands for the summer to keep my hair away from my face. They’re also great for second day hair when your hair isn’t being easy to work with. You know how that goes...
