Everyday Loose Curls

Posted on by

Brunch Look 14

CURLING WAND: Remington //  HAIRSPRAY: Ulta Beauty  //  BRUSH: Ulta Beauty

I’ve been getting questions about how to do my go-to loose curls, so I decided to make a tutorial for them. I think they add such an elegant touch to any look and are perfect for just about any occasion. They are pretty simple to do once you get the hang of the movements. I hope this helps!

Thanks for watching!

SUNGLASSES: Nordstrom  //  TOP: ASOS (also in aqua & pink)  //  JEANS: H&M  //  PURSE: MARC JACOBS (old – similar here & here)  //  SCARF: Madewell (old – similar here & here)  //  SHOES:  DSW

Happy Monday! It’s actually a little difficult for me to say “happy” Monday, because I very much dislike Mondays and appreciate my weekends too much, but here we are. Need to make the best of it.

I recently took some time off of work to meet up with my family in southern Florida, where they were spending spring break, and then to relax in LA for a few more days. Now that I’m completely back into the work grind, I’ve been thinking, “How do I find a job where I am paid to go on vacation?” 🙂 A few weeks ago, I saw something online that Netflix would pay people to travel and document their travels, but it was only for a few weeks. I need a full-time job out of this! Haha, I’m only somewhat kidding about this idea.

Anyways, I wore this outfit yesterday for Sunday breakfast in West Hollywood. I have been searching high and low for a pair of boyfriend jeans that wouldn’t quite literally make me look like a boy. For my body type, each pair I tried on were either suffocating in the legs and have an excess four inches of room at the waist, or they would be so short that it looked like I was wearing  denim capris. As attractive as both these looks were, I gave up and stuck with my skinny jeans. Over the weekend, I was browsing in H&M (because what good budget-hunting Millennial doesn’t) and decided to try this pair on. For $30, they were wayyy better than some other boyfriend jeans I had tried that were at least double their price. With a bit of a stretch to them, they are also super comfortable. You will definitely be seeing more of these jeans!

**Just a hint, for World Recycle Week – take your old unwanted clothing to H&M to receive 30% off of your entire purchase until Sunday, 4/24. Happy recycling and shopping!**

Have a great week!

The Classics

TRENCH COAT: J.Crew  //  SHIRTTarget (old – similar herehere)  //  JEANS: Joe’s Jeans  //  HEELS: Nina Shoes  //  SUNGLASSES: Sunglass Warehouse

This outfit is made up of some classic pieces that every girl needs in her closet. A solid white button-up and black skinny jeans are essentials because they can both be paired with tons of different looks in all seasons. I wear my black skinny jeans multiple times a week because I have yet to find something else that can fit so many occasions. I also love that I can throw on a white button up with a pair of jeans, tucked into a pencil skirt, or under a sweater for a crisp look. The one I’m wearing here is a bit longer, with a tunic-like fit and slits up the sides for a more modernized look. In my mind, the white button up is one of the easiest ways to look polished, besides adding pearl jewelry.

I tossed on a pair of suede pumps from Nina Shoes in the color Robin’s Egg. The color is subtle enough, but just a bit of fun with the bluish tint. I love these pumps because they only have a 3 inch heel, which makes long days at work much easier. It also makes them appropriate for day and evening. I plan my days around what type of shoe I’m wearing – if I need to walk more than a few blocks at any given time, I’m switching to flats or wedges. I love heels, but they aren’t very cute if you are wincing in pain with each step. (I’ve definitely been there before and had to buy a pair of flip flops just so I could finish grocery shopping after a long day on my feet. Haha, so glamorous.)

I completed the look with a classic trench coat and some tortoise shell shades from Sunglass Warehouse. These shades are super affordable and are at the perfect price point for trying out trendier styles that you aren’t ready to break the bank to purchase. If you’re like me, you’ll love Sunglass Warehouse because it means you had afford to buy a few more pairs. 🙂 My trench coat on the other hand was a bit of a splurge for me, but it is almost two years old now and still in great shape. I know I have many more good years out of it. I look at it as more of an investment than a splurge. Be careful telling yourself that on a regular basis though – it’s a very slippery slope.

Have a great week!
