Neutrals, Feminine Details, and a Pop of Color

I'm no fashion blogger but every now and then I wear something cute enough to share.

The outfit started with the taupe bib necklace and I paired it with a lightweight white sweater to let the necklace be the star. I liked the look of layered neutrals so I added the gold bow flats (my wedding shoes!) then put on my green ring to keep it from being too bland.

Rockin' the Gibson

Sorry, music fans, this past has nothing to do with guitars and everything to do with hair. This morning I tried the gibson tuck and I am in sweet, follicular love!

Inspired by a tutorial on Pinterest (where else?) I tried it today and I have since decided this is the updo for me. It's quick and easy without defaulting to the old standards. Ballerina buns aren't for me because my hair is too fine so the bun is too small and tends to slowly slide off my head as the day progresses. The sloppy "un-bun" as I call it certainly is fast and easy, but it's not exactly sophisticated enough for the office. Plus it's erratic nature bothers me - sometimes it looks quirky but cute, other times it looks like a varmint has made a nest on my head.

I won't walk you through the tutorial, I will leave that to Sara. But I will tell you this worked even for my super-fine hair and has stayed all day, with only a minor re-pinning after lunch. This is for sure in my hair rotation from now on!
