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.

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!

The perfect off-the-shoulder dress (so on trend!) for summer. Pair it with some edgy sandals to complete the look.
