Beach Waves for Days

What’s your signature? The one thing about you that never changes and embodies your identity. My hair would surely be mine. I started styling my hair in loose beach waves in college in 2009, and I never stopped. I feel totally out of my element with straight hair! The process of washing, drying and curling my hair is a long one (there’s so much of it!) So instead of repeated daily heat damage, I’ve discovered ways around it to keep styling to a minimum and my hair healthy!

On day one, i style my hair, then spray a lightweight hair spray on my hands and run it through. My coveted styling wand has lasted 8+ years and is still going strong! It’s worth every penny! (Get it 30% off here!)

Before bed, i spray dry shampoo on my roots and throw my hair up in a messy bun with one of these! The amazing thing about these is not only the hold, but the volume they add. When I let my hair down the following morning it looks just like the night before!

When my hair needs a little extra oomph, I spritz a texturizing spray and it brings it back to life! This power duo saves me countless amount of time during the week, and they’re currently apart of this sale!

The White Denim That’s a Must for Spring

Top (similar) | Denim | Sunnies | Earrings | Wedges | Lipstick: Strawberry Shortcake

I love adding striped pieces to my wardrobe because they’re timeless, so I know I’ll wear them for years! This one is a recent H&M find for only $5! One of my favorite ways to pair them is with white denim. It’s the ultimate Spring staple, and the first basic I grab to pair with espadrilles for a crisp, Spring look! This option is so comfy and super affordable! I love that they offer petite and tall options, as well, because a trip to the tailor with an almost 2 year old isn’t on my bucket list! (Ha!)

When I get back home to colder temps, I will definitely be swapping out my favorite taupe ankle boots and a neutral lightweight sweater for a chic transitional look. The key to transitioning white from Winter to Spring is sticking to neutral basics, without any sort of stark contrast.

White denim can be tricky, as to some fabrics are so thin they can be sheer. I love that this fabric is on the heavier side, so I don’t have to worry!

Snatch this style while you can, it’s currently 40% off at the checkout, making it under $22! Have a wonderful week!
