Clouds Of Baby's Breath

I went in for a cut and color because it had been months and I was quite tired of cutting my own bangs! The hair stylist asked if she could try this strange crimping iron on my hair...I said yes and this is the result. It reminds me of the finger waves from eras past, or mermaid hair. Rather pretty, but definitely too much effort to attempt often. Minimal effort is basically how I would explain my hair and make-up routine. I wish I could get into cheek contouring or the perfect teased hair look, but I'm rather unskilled in that area and too lazy to study it. I only mastered milkmaid braids last year and that is a neat trick because it keeps my hair out of the way all day.

I just received this dress from Urban 1972 and I really like it. It's super lightweight and a tad sheer, but I like the easy fit and shape. The name of the dress is "babies breath" which immediately calls to mind that sweet, underrated flower. I remember seeing stunning arrangements of baby's breath; they looked like little white clouds floating above their vases. I really prefer flower arrangements that feature a single type of bloom; ones made of pure baby's breath seem both sweet and striking.

  1. Love your hair! Especially that crimping effect. This has reminded me that I need to cut my fringe. I've lost the ability to see x

  3. I'm glad your still enjoying those fall colours! Does it snow in Virginia?

    Me and my fringe didn't get along because I was really bad a trimming! We had to break up.

  5. I cut my own bangs all the time, but when on the rare occasions that I do go to a salon to have my bangs cut, it is a treat! I don't think I could do the crimping effect on my hair without looking like Hagrid from Harry Potter. My hair is way too thick! I don't see a difference in your hair color. I am guessing you just had it redyed?

  6. I love your up-dated hair. The colour is so warm for winter. I agree that cutting your own bangs gets tiresome after a while. Last time I did it I ended up with a hair in my eye. Very traumatic!

  9. Your hair looks lovely :) I really love that bag too- every time I see it I want it a little bit more :) I agree with Winnie too- it sounds like its quite difficult to get dressed in the morning if you don't know what the weather is going to be like!

  12. my mum is wedding florist and recently did bridal flowers that where bouquets of just babys breath, with a little glitter sprinkled over them and tied with a faded pink ribbon they were beautiful! totally agree single blooms on mass are much nicer than a mix of things. :) xo

  13. The crimping looks cute!
    You don't need to worry about learning how to style your hair in all those different ways though, because it always looks really good naturally! You're just lucky.

    Love the bow tights too :)

  15. My hair usually is naturally wavy like that but I try my best to straighten it (which doesn't usually work because I have too much hair that's really thick, though yours looks that way too).

    Very beautiful new hair. cute.
