I'm definitely looking forward to fall fashion, but I am not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet. I just wish that we could hold on to this warm weather a bit longer. Living here in Jersey, you really learn to appreciate the summer months because once the cold weather hits, it can be almost unbearable at times. I am definitely taking advantage of the time we have left and wearing a few more summer looks!
I dressed up for date night even though I didn't have a date. [lol] So, I guess I dressed up for myself then? I thought that this little floral dress was the perfect choice for a fun summer night out. The color combo is so beautiful and I was instantly drawn to it. I love the style & cut of this dress too. The front part was really open so I did have to make a minor adjustment by pinning it together. If I left it open, then I would have been putting on a show for everyone to see. I completed the look with my pink pumps & a navy blue clutch to match the print.
I've been getting a lot of questions about how I was able to create this big bun with short hair. I did not use a "sock" or "donut" so please believe that you can totally achieve this look if your hair is short like mine! The secret is to make sure you do the bun when your hair is curly because it will be easier to create volume. It's also much easier to play around with your hair and form it the way you want. Just use lots of bobby pins, especially in the back and use lots of hairspray too!
