Hairspiration: Buns!

This month's hairspiration post is all about buns. There is something so chic and graceful about a well styled bun. And there's really a ton of different ways you can style this look, which makes it ideal for just about anyone.
Here are a few of my favorite looks that I found via pinterest:

Oh, how I can't wait to have long hair so I can try out some of these looks!
Which one of these looks is your favorite??

Happy Tuesday!

Outfit repeater.

Dress-Forever 21/Sweater-H&M/Flats-Target

I have this weird thing about wearing the same outfit too many times. I tend to always try and mix it up with accessories and shoes to try and make an outfit feel new each time I wear it. Of course when I do repeat an outfit, I use the "it doesn't count if you aren't seeing the same people" excuse every now and then. Well this past week I've been kind of obsessed with this little dress/shoe/sweater combo. I picked up this dress at Forever 21 last week, and am guilty of wearing it multiple times already. It's incredibly comfortable, and is perfect for the nice spring days we've been having! I love how easy cotton dresses are to just throw on without much effort or thought being put into it. I wish it came in ten different colors, because I'd probably make it my spring/summer uniform! 

What have you been loving to wear lately?

Happy Thursday!

Random Thoughts

Today's random thoughts:

- I leave for New York City in 3 1/2 weeks. I am super excited to go back to one of my favorite places in the whole world! I will be there for seven days, four of which will be spent taking a class with Bumble and Bumble. Basically I'll be learning how to teach other hairstylists. I'll admit, I'm a little nervous.

-Mewithoutyou is my all time favorite band. They finally have a new album coming out next month, hooray! Here's the single from it. Listen to it. Love it.


-I now feel completely justified in my coffee addiction. Thank you, pinterest!

- Speaking of coffee, I finally reached the gold level at Starbucks. This basically just means I get a fancy gold card to use when I buy my coffee. Totally worth it. Some may see this as a small event in their lives, but I see it as a huge achievement. I maybe even cheered when it happened. Maybe.

- I am so excited for the summer. I am predicting that it will be the busiest summer I've had in awhile. But it will be a blast! We're moving (not too far away), one of my brother's graduates highschool, the other brother gets married, and then both brothers (and new sister-in-law) move to Washington. Yeah, I'm thinking the title "Busiest summer of all time" fits nicely. 

-This morning while I was walking to my car, a homeless man informed me that he called a cab for me. Then he told me he liked me earrings, which have anchors on them, and then shouted "Ahoy, matey!"  Sometimes living in the city is extremely entertaining. 

-I consider myself a pretty tidy person. But for some reason I can never keep my closet looking neat. Bathroom? Usually clean. Kitchen? Spotless. Closet? Total disaster at all times. And right now it looks like a tornado has gone through it. Twice. 

I know this post was completely pointless. Sometimes those are the best ones, right? 
I promise my next one will be much more cohesive. :)

Happy Tuesday!

(Everything  I'm wearing is from Target. I think I may love that store a little too much?)

So, I haven't posted anything for two weeks. I wish I could say "I've been just so busy doing awesome and amazing things so I had no time for blogging." But, I really have no good excuse for why I was gone for so long. I have just been in a bit of a funk lately, and needed a little break from blog posts and videos. But I'm feeling good and am ready to get back at it!

This is what I wore yesterday for Easter. It was a beautiful day, and I took full advantage of the weather by forgoing tights and boots and busting out some open toed shoes. It's definitely a nice change of pace to have 65 degree days around these parts. The hubby and I spent the morning serving at church, and then had lunch with his family. And then of course we played a little Settlers of Catan (Yes, we're a slightly nerdy). I won the first game, naturally. 

Here are a few random snapshots from the day:
 I'm preeetty sure his beard is bigger than my head. :)

My favorite little ladies and I, Cali (above) and Annie!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend as well. I promise not to disappear from the blogging world again without proper notice :).

Happy Monday!
