{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Beyonce’s Met Gala Hair Proves Ponytails Are Back (Though They Never Left)

Leave it to Beyoncé to make a hairstyle most sport to the gym look cooler than ever, thanks to her high-style at the 2015 Met Gala.

Ponytails have started trickling onto the red carpet. And now that the Queen B herself has dubbed it fabulous at one of the biggest nights in fashion, well it has at least blown my mind.

Early this year Reese Witherspoon sported a low pony to the Golden Globes and she wasn’t the only A lister with her hair pulled back in this simple style. Emma Stone and Katie Holmes both opted for ponytails instead of elaborate undos.  J.Lo also rocked this hairstyle to a major event, the Oscars.

High or low, anything goes. The best part, it won’t cost you much or require sick hairstyling skills.

Gather hair and fasten with a hair tie. Then separate a small section fro underneath and use to wrap around the hair tie. Keep wrapping, then use a bobby pin to secure the hair at the base of the ponytail.

{ Steal Of The Week } Milly For DesigNation At Kohl’s

Designer style at a fraction of the cost, that’s why I love diffusion lines so dearly. The Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection sold out so quick that most of us won’t get to enjoy it without forking over extra on eBay. So let’s move on to the next one. It’s seriously stylish and also on sale. Milly for DesigNation at Kohl’s is now available and well worth snagging. Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Three Ways To Rock A Short-Sleeve Cardi

Happy Earth Day! I’m celebrating by up-cycling old mags into a vision board (blog post coming on that) and also restyling some of my favorites. Getting extra wear out of your items is a great way to cut down your carbon footprint and help the planet, as is donating items that you’re no longer using.  So it makes sense that today is the day that I recap the three looks from this month’s Dare To Wear series. Hope you like the pics and get inspired to play dress up with what you’ve already got. Links to the full posts are below and they are full of tips and pics!

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Celebs Love Lokai

Oh hey, April is Earth month and April 22nd is Earth Day. Fashion with purpose is always in style and this next trend is one that incorporates Mother Nature and also gives back.

They’re called Lokai and they’ve been blowing up on social media. The first time I really noticed them was a few weeks ago on Ralphie Aversa’s Instagram. I chat celeb trends with him every Tuesday on his syndicated radio show, Ralphie Tonight (link to listen is below) so it’s fitting that he’s the trendsetter who first put Lokai on my radar.
