Back to Basics

So I decided enough was enough with these highlights. I told you here, here, and here about the trouble I was having with them. I was going through hell and for what? SO...I decided to go back to basics...good ole' medium brown.

The weather is still not cooperating and although it's summer and shorts seem appropriate I had to pair them with a longer sleeve top. I love the open back detail on this one, although it requires one to go braless and in cooler weather, well....I should've thought that through a little better!

I apologize my posts have been late this week but hey, better late than never!

Have a great weekend!

Fashion Week

Here is a clip of me hosting Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I found this clip and just thought I'd share...I loved this Alice + Olivia dress I got to wear!

Business Casual

Well I had a busy and fun weekend but it definitely wiped me out. As you probably figured out due to the lack of post yesterday I was just so exhausted and trying to catch up.
But I am back in full swing to work and well, everything else that needs my attention. The good news is it's already Wednesday and the week is half over!

This dress has a very business/office wear feel so I tried to accessorize it to make it more casual for everyday.
I wore this out to see Eclipse with some girlfriends which btw, was the best one yet!

Red White and Blue

I am so excited for the holiday weekend. My bf is coming to town and we have a weekend full of summer fun ahead!

Due to the nature of the holiday I want to take a moment and thank our military for giving us the opportunity to celebrate the birth of our country. Without them we would have nothing to celebrate. There are so many families that will be without their loved ones because they are overseas and though my bf is in the Army, I am lucky enough to be able to spend it with him. My thoughts are with those people this weekend.

I hope you all have fun whatever you do!

June Gloom

June Gloom is something that occurs in Southern California where it is pretty much cloudy for a month. It is a real's even on Wikipedia here.
It might not seem like a big deal, but when you are used to seeing the sun all the time, it get's annoying. You can even see how gray it is in these pictures. :(

I tried to put on a dress to lift up my mood. Now that it's officially July I am really hoping the sun comes out for the weekend festivities!

Nude Nights

There is a reason that Nude is on trend right now and it goes back to my summer philosophy: look cute, but don't try too hard.
Summer nights can be hot and sticky and black just feels too heavy. A neutral dress feels light and airy, easy to throw on and will highlight the tan you got at the beach.
Here are a few I found on shopbop that I am loving...

Alice + Olivia Gabby Embellished Dress

Product Review: Phyto Instant hydrating conditioner

The other day I was at Kasai, that salon I told you about here, when the stylist pointed out that my hair was pretty damaged from the highlights I got a few months back. This sadly is NOT news to me. I have been battling with the effects of the bleach since the very first wash which I also mentioned here and here .

I have breakage in the front of my hair which is apparently the most delicate and as a result I have been battling flyaways. You can kind of see it in this picture...and it really drives me crazy!

The stylist told me about this leave in conditioner which she said will help....
She was definitely not kidding. This stuff not only is great as a conditioner, but if you use it to tame flyaways instead of hairspray you don't get that crunchy effect.

I also got the Serum that I told you about here and I am loving that stuff too.

I got this stuff at the salon, but Phyto is available at Sephora.

Also I just wanted to say...
Congrats to Valerie of Red Vines for Breakfast and my BBFF Amanda from A.Co Est. 1984 for being featured in FabSugar's Look's of the week!! Check them out here

Festivus on the brain...

Aside from Christmas, Fourth of July is my favorite time of the year. BBQ's, beaches, frosty beverages, good friends...

It's one of those holidays though that I always want to look cute, but I don't want to have to try too hard.

Here are a few items I found on Asos that I thought were simple but chic.
