Boyfriend jeans have always been one of my favorite things to wear. It’s so easy to feel frumpy though in an oversized pair of jeans. To dress them up, I love to pair mine with a feminine top and heels to feel more put together. I love the casual vibes of this style and think boyfriend jeans can be styled so many different ways!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you know I am obsessed with lacy, frilly tops. I didn’t always love them though. In fact, growing up I preferred to dress exactly like my brothers in boy tees and cargo pants. Nowadays, I can’t seem to fill my closet with enough girly blouses! Also, these heels go with literally everything; a great shoe for Spring and Summer!
There’s nothing worse than waking up late to discover there isn’t enough time to wash your hair before work or school. When a messy bun or ponytail simply won’t cut it, this hairstyle will be your new favorite for saving the day. With a dash of dry shampoo and the right styling products, you can have your hair perfectly styled for whatever the day holds and without anyone knowing you’re overdue for a hair wash.
Twisted Buns Updo Supplies:
L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo
TRESeme Beauty-Full Volume Flexible Finish Spray
Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist
9-10 Bobby pins
Step 1 / Begin by spraying the roots with the L’Oreal dry shampoo. This helps refresh the hair and soak up any extra oil when your hair is due to be washed. Even if the hair is clean it’s perfect for adding a bit of texture and grip to the hair.
Step 2 / Next, pick up sections of hair at the crown and backcomb the hair, brushing the hair near the root downwards, to add a bit of extra volume and volume. Then spray the roots underneath with a volume spray to set the backcombing so it doesn’t fall flat throughout the day.
Step 3 / Pick up a section of hair at the crown and twist it together at the back of the head. Then twist the hair together and wrap it clock-wise into a bun pinning the twist as you go.
Step 4 / Continue wrapping and pinning the section until the hair forms a bun. Then pick up a new section on the right side and combine it with the ends from the bun.
Step 5 / Wrap this second section into another bun under the first, slightly towards the left, and pin it against the head. Then combine the remaining hair together and twist it all together.
Step 6 / Wrap the twist into a third bun, under the previous two and pin it with several more bobby pins. Set the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.

Happy Monday! The weather here in Arizona has been absolutely perfect lately. This sheer sweater has been such a great transitional piece with the warmer weather. Not to mention I am completely obsessed with the color. I have been filling my closet with soft pastel shades for the upcoming Spring season. It’s easily one of my favorite seasons to dress for. Sadly, this sweater is already sold out but I found a similar one and there are so many other cute sweaters to choose from too. Pair any cute top with white denim and it’s one of the easiest ways to make your outfit more suitable to Spring!
Today’s tutorial is a little bit different. I’ve been really wanting to step outside the box recently and try hairstyles that weren’t your typical everyday styles. This tutorial was inspired by a photo I saw recently on an instagram account, @entwinedbypippa. I love how complicated it looks but if you love waterfall braids then you can easily learn this look. Be sure to let me know if you do decide to recreate this look! I have no doubt you’ll get lots of compliments if you ever wear this style! xo, Missy
We’re home from our trip and it’s so weird being back. This morning I was getting breakfast together and it felt like we’d never left. I love going somewhere new though because routines can feel so stale after a while and a quick trip always helps me feel refreshed. Part way through the drive I turned to AJ and said I was having so much fun. He thinks it’s so strange but I really love road trips. Driving in the car has always been so fun to me.
Black has always held a special place in my heart. It’s so sleek and never goes out of style. Mixing textures and pattern is a great way to keep an all black outfit from feeling flat. I love this lace top because it looks so classy but wears like a casual top. I paired this look with neutral accessories but I think keeping it all black would’ve been so chic too. What do you think? Would you style it with a neutral heel and bag, keep it all black, or add a pop of color? xo, M
