Tropical Shift Dress

  I always preach versatility and this adorable shift dress was a perfect example of being able to tweak one dress and create countless looks.  I have topped my look here with a panama hat and woven flats and cinched the waist with a leather belt.  You could also let out the belt and add strappy heels and a blazer.  You could throw on Converse and a denim jacket and be ultra casual.  I love the options!

No question I love nautical inspired outfits.  This week's Work Wednesday was definitely influenced by mixing the nautical with the unexpected. We have florals and jewels.  Let me know if you love this look! 

Twisted Messy Updo for Short Hair Tutorial

Beautykacee geoffroyComment

The lob is the hottest cut of the year.  It's universally flattering.  Having short hair myself, I get in conversation all the time with girls not sure if they want to cut their hair because they aren't sure of the versatility of it.  This twisted messy undo I love so much because it's beyond easy and really does last all day.  It's the perfect look for any short haircut on any occasion.  

Here are my step by step instructions on how to get this look: 

Step 1: Blast hair with dry shampoo all over to create grit and add texture. Also if working with dirty hair dust a hair texture dust onto roots to clean up hair and create volume.

Step 2:  Section off hair from temples straight back.  Twist each section as you move hair backwards.  Secure with a pin. 

Step 3:  Continue in 1 inch sections down the back of hair.  Twist hair and secure in the back. 

Step 4: When you get to bottom short layers at the nape of the neck. Twist the whole short layer together into a small bun and secure with a pins. 

Step 5: Loosen up twists on each section by pulling at the twists to create more effortless and casual look.  

Step 6: Pull face framing pieces out to soften around the face. Lightly spray with hair spray.

Summer whites are in full effect!  I love the simplicity of fresh whites and classic stripes.  I paired these super comfy linen pants with this striped sweater for a clean nautical feel.  I sport this panama hat almost daily and topped the look off with simple strappy heels.

I always gravitate towards classic sillouettes because I find them to be so functional in my life.  I have worn this great A-line dress both to work at a wedding with flats to a lunch out with friends with heels. I added a leather belt for some added texture and structure.

I love the versatility of this sweet blouse and short combo.  It can be worn so many ways.  I chose to keep it casual for brunch by tucking in the blouse adding woven flats and a panama hat.  Easy breezy!
