I’ve been noticing some fun new hair trends for Spring and wanted to share! Did you know that lavender is the new hair color of the season? I’ve been spotting it everywhere and I love its mermaid-esque look! I especially gravitate towards the lighter almost grayish lavender hues. I find them so pretty! Take a look:
I love wispy bangs! If I had straight hair I would wear wispy bangs all year round but sadly since I was born with curly hair, I have to restrict my fringe to late fall and winter months only.
I love a good bob with some wave to it!
Top knots once loose and messy are now inspiring a more modern, cleaner look for Spring.
Feathered layers provide a more natural layered look for Spring
Lavender is the IT hair color for Spring
I was feeling like I needed a little inspiration for Spring and ever since I found out about the Marsh Botanical Gardens last year, I’ve wanted to go. It seemed like the perfect day to do it, so why not? We popped in and out of all the greenhouses we could, toured the campus and ended the day at the beach (which is only about seven miles away!). By the end of the day, my crazy plant lady vibes were back in full bloom, just in time for Spring!
Entering the first greenhouse!
Many of the greenhouses had smaller rooms inside which created a cozy tropical experience
Some of the plants were so tall, it looked like they needed to raise the roof

The biggest bunch of bananas I’ve ever seen and one of the many tropical fruits growing here
There are plenty of petals too!

I’ve slowly been getting in the mood for Fall. A little more so than at the beginning of October since I always fight against the end of Summer. With Halloween around the corner, it has helped to boost my cozy Fall mood. It may be 80′ degrees outside but bring on the sweaters and crank up the A/C! Here’s a little October inspiration for ya:
This morning I wanted to share some red, white and blue accessories for July 4th! I’m so ready to hop on that boat and sail off into the fireworks!! Holidays like July 4th, I think it’s fun to wear something cute and festive. Anchors have always been my go-to pattern and the red, white and blue colors fit right into play. Check out some of my faves:
chambray anchor shirt
american flag keychain
gold anchor stud earrings
anchor iPhone case
red and white scrunchi
gold anchor ring
jack rogers sandals
I always like to change up my hair a bit from season to season and Summer is no different. I found some really cute hair styles that I can’t wait to try. I’m especially loving the twisted pigtail braids (second pic) and if you click through the link, there’s a really easy tutorial on how to get the look! Check it out:
beach waves aren’t just for the sea!
Twisted pigtails via Raising Buddies – how perfect would this hair style be for a hot day?!
Single side braid
keep it sleek!
messy bun – the go-to hair style when you’ve been in and out of the water all day
add a scarf for a chic and effortless Summer look
This morning I wanted to share some of my fashion favorites for May! I’ve been finding it helpful to map out an inspiration board for outfits (especially when packing) as it offers a visual guide. Summer vacations are right around the corner and unfortunately I’m the type of packer if I don’t plan my outfits in advance, I end up with more bottoms than tops or vice versa! Take a look:
beach tote – I’m obsessed with the color and those rope handles!!
palm tree stud earrings – been wearing these on repeat while I wait for things to warm up
pink sunglasses – I love the shape of these, classic with a twist of chic
endless wave ring – the hammered finish on this ring adds a touch of sparkle
beach iPhone case – I like my iPhone case to match my vacation 😉
linen sandals – just slip these puppies on and go!
cutout halter dress – organic cotton everything, please
This morning I wanted to share some Spring hair inspiration. The beginning of every season is always a good time to refresh your hairstyle. For Spring, since it’s a pretty busy season for me, I typically lean towards quick hairstyles that don’t require much time but still look cute. One of my favorites is the top knot with the added twist of a small braid. It looks chic and only requires minimal effort!
This is the hairstyle I was telling you about. Super quick and effortless! via pinterest
