Summer Style: Boho-Chic Dress

My sister and I rarely share clothes. It’s not that we can’t share clothes–we’re generally the same size/body shape–we just choose not to because we have radically different styles. While I’m more classic/preppy & could spend my whole paycheck at J. Crew, Krista’s wardrobe is primarily black and comprised of thrift shop items (she’s a crazy good thrifter). Every once in a while I’ll steal something edgier~ from her, but for the most part we stick to our own closets.

While it seems like we’re missing out on a significant sister-benefit of swapping clothes, I love it because it means I can feature totally different outfits here that aren’t like my style at all. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about my summer style (check it out here!), so here’s Krista’s take on a great summer dress for all of you who are into the boho-chic look.

Summer Style: The Two-Piece Dress

In case ya missed it, two-piece dresses are super trendy~ right now. I absolutely love dresses in the summer. They’re easy, they’re effortless & they always look great. I had seen a bunch of two-piece dresses online, but couldn’t find the right one (for the right price), until I stumbled upon this gem. It’s super comfy & a slight step up from casual–perfect for your next date or summer party. (And you’ll never guess where I got it!) Keep scrolling for more!

How to Get Easy, Beachy Waves

If you grew up watching Laguna Beach or The Hills, then you remember how much we ALL wanted Lauren Conrad’s signature beachy~ waves. For years I tried to capture her messy-yet-put-together look, including using “scrunching” spray, sleeping in braids, perfecting the messy bun, etc. etc. Eventually I gave up and wore my hair super straight for a long period of time then experimented with tight ringlet curls, mostly because the elusive beachy waves thing was seemingly out of my reach.

Well, recently I decided to try–once again–to perfect the relaxed waves & I think I’ve finally got it right. Great thing is that you can do it relatively quickly (20-ish minutes depending on your hair length), with styling tools/products you probably already have. This is my first hair styling post ever, so bear with me & enjoy awkward selfies of me in my bathroom, yay!
