Spring Hair Inspiration 2019

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.

Top knots once loose and messy are now inspiring a more modern, cleaner look for Spring.

Tropical Inspiration

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!

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

October Inspiration

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:

Summer Outfit Inspiration – May Favorites

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:

Summer Outfit Inspiration - May Favorites

 

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

Spring Hair Inspiration

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!
