Tuesday Tip: Lazy girl's guide to a "good hair day"

So, I've never done a "beauty" post, but people ask me how I do my hair a lot. I am not and will NEVER be a morning person and I do not use heat appliances on my hair. When I got addicted to Pinterest (about 2 years ago... limited activity in the past year), I discovered the "sock bun". To curl my hair I make sure it is mostly dry (I have fine, super straight hair), put it in a loose pony tail on top of my head, divide the pony tail into two halves- left and right, cross them over and then roll them onto the sock bun and remove the pony tail holder once the sock bun is close to my head. The only styling product I use is Organix Coconut Milk Anti-breakage serum. I found that the more products I try to add to my hair the harder it is to curl. I do this before I go to bed at night and in the morning I simply remove the sock bun and go. It only takes me about 20 minutes to get ready, mostly because it's usually too hard to get out of bed. 




That's it, simple soft curls by morning!

And your daily dose of cuteness- a baby bunny in my back yard!

Casual Weekend Style

Well, I think it comes off pretty clear that my personal/ weekend style is far different than the preppy and polished outfits I wear to work. I tend to love to dress more bohemian on my own time. Since spring seems to have finally arrived in Colorado (if I see more snow before October I'm looking for a job in a warm state), I can finally break out my dresses and skirts!






Outfit details: Dress- Ross; Sandals- Old Navy (old); Bracelets- Target; Necklace and earrings- thrifted from Plato's Closet. Total outfit cost: approximately $38.

Yes, that's right. I'm going to start estimating the cost of each outfit I wear. After all, this blog is all about being a bargain fashionista... or, shall we say a "bargainista" :)

Weekend Wrap-up

Well, the week got away from me, but luckily I have a wonderful boyfriend who will take pictures of me late on a Friday night as I put back on the outfits I wore during the week for photos.  So, here's what I wore:

Outfit 1- Inspired Outfit
Inspiration photo







Outfit details: Skirt and tights- Target; Shirt- H&M; Boots- Madden Girl; Necklace- Forever 21.

I switched the outfit around a little, but I thought the color of the skirt was comparable. The color of the skirt in the original photo is more cranberry than purple. Sorry the photos came out so blurry, I think my lens was dirty... oops. Fail. 

Outfit 2
I read on another blog that you could always layer that T-shirt you own that is slightly too big over a button-up shirt to make it fashionable. I'm still not sure how I feel about the results... Thoughts?








Outfit details: Button-up shirt:-H&M, T-shirt- Target; Necklace- Charming Charlie; Shoes- Steve Madden; Owl ring and earrings- Forever 21; Skirt- Ross; Watch- Stuhrling (gift).

Outfit 3




Outfit details: Shirt and skirt- Forever 21; Necklace- Candies (Kohl's); Watch and bracelet- gifts; Shoes- Steve Madden.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Concert Style

All of you going to Coachella weekend 2 I will try to ignore your pics on Facebook and Instagram out of pure jealousy of great music and great weather. As you all know by now, I am a huge concert junkie and I'm willing to survive rain, hail, snow, tornado warnings, etc., to see my favorite bands. It's still freezing here in Colorado, so this is what I wore to the last concert I attended 2 weeks ago. 










Outfit Details: Dress, boots, and earrings- Forever 21; Tights- Target; Necklace- thrifted at Plato's Closet; Bag- Love Culture.

I also wore a faux leather jacket with this since it was so cold out. It's not pictured, but you can find it in this post and this post

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
