Concrete Catwalk // Short on the Sides

March 12, 2014


Reason #43672 why I love the way Ms. Rubi cuts my hair: It finally seems to air-dry into something other than a fluffy mess!

I haven’t even so much as glanced at my hair dryer since we’ve been here in California, and aside from the blow-out that came with an exciting project I worked on a few weeks ago, it hasn’t touched anything hotter than pure sunshine.

I know things are still trying to warm up in most parts of the US, but might I recommend that we all start looking forward to Spring by adding bright pops of color to our normal hair routine?  ;)

Ps. –  150 extra points to whoever can name the last time they wore their button-down shirt knotted at the waist… I’m guessing my last time was more recent than most, and might I say that it was kind of fun to throw it back to third grade?


Keep reading for the rest of the look and a full rundown on outfit details!


Top to Bottom // Sorrelli bib necklace*, Everlane white poplin button down*, Elie Tahari pencil skirt (this one is similar and CRAZY on sale), Evil eye bracelet, kate spade elissa tote (on sale!)*, J. Crew strappy flat sandals, Sarah Chloe signet “G” ring, Moorea Seal midi ring// * notes a gifted item.

    The evil eye bracelet you’re rocking here is far superior to the (still awesome) one you linked to. Would you mind sharing where you got the one in the photos? Just for curiosity’s sake :)

      Thanks, Rebekah! The one I’m wearing in the photo is from Bauble Bar a few years ago, and unfortunately – I haven’t been able to find any other similar leather versions ANYwhere! Will keep my eyes open (promise to let you know!), and feel free to let me know if you see anything just as fabulous! XOXO

    You look great…so ready for summer! I love how you kept the outfit simpler, though I bet that skirt would look totally amazing dressed up!

    xx April
