I’ve been on a turquoise/aqua and purple kick lately and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! They’re my favorite colors and how fun do they look together?! I pulled out my white denim skirt and I’m impressed with how clean I kept it. Also, I think I’ve mentioned it before but I don’t recommend cobblestones and heels…. you’d think I would have learned my lesson by now but nope, I evidently really enjoy falling flat on my face!
I’ve been a huge fan of Cooper and Ella (see me in Cooper and Ella here and here) so I was so excited to hear that the company known for their beautiful and versatile tops was expanding into dresses! I’m obsessed with mine. The layered top makes this dress really flattering and the open back detail makes it unique and fun. And I can easily wear a bra with the dress without the strap showing at all so I’m completely sold. I am also in love with this gorgeous pastel plaid print Alana dress too!
Oh, and it’s the last day to enter the Brooklyn Designs giveaway to win the gorgeous 14kt gold filled turquoise necklace I’m wearing here. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to enter with the rafflecopter form. Make sure to get those last entries in! Photography by Mark Mittel

My favorite hairstyle has always been natural, beachy waves. I was born with a mop of frizzy hair so my dream of waking up every morning with effortless beach waves has yet to happen to me. Over the years I’ve tried countless products but my hair seems to have a life of its own and I never know what will cause it to frizz up. I was recently given the opportunity to try some products from TRESemme’s Perfectly (un)Done line and their tagline, “effortless, natural looking waves that last all day,” had me really excited because that is everything I want for my hair. I started with the Perfectly un(Done) shampoo and Perfectly un(Done) conditioner. I let the conditioner soak in my hair for a good few minutes before rinsing it out which left my hair feeling noticeably softer. Oh and a nice bonus, the products smell great!
It was hard to choose the styling products because I want to try them all but I finally settled on the Perfectly un(Done) Wave Creation Sea Foam. I was relieved that my hair remained soft and didn’t become hard or sticky like with many of my other hair products. I let it air dry and then spent about 15-20 minutes using a curling wand to create more definition and wave since my hair doesn’t naturally have as much of a wave as I’d like. I finished off with the Perfectly un(Done) Hairspray, Ultra Brushable Hold and it worked really well without weighing my hair down at all. I added a quick and easy side twist which literally took two seconds and then I took it for the ultimate test run; a photo shoot on a windy day! I was shocked by how well my hair held up, even with the unfair standards of the crazy weather conditions. Normally my hair would turn into a frizzy mess by the second outfit change on a windy day, but my hair held up amazingly well throughout all three outfit changes and I loved my beach waves so much that I refused to wash my hair for another two days. Shhhh, they say it’s good for you!
I feel like a beach wave hairstyle is so versatile because it works for every occasion; from a more casual affair like brunch, work, or a shopping day to a less casual situation like date night or a party. It gives off a relaxed, effortless vibe which is usually the look I’m going for!
I recently discovered (and fell in love with) Frock and Frill, a womenswear brand filled with beautiful, feminine dresses with vintage vibes. Each dress is prettier then the next with gorgeous and intricate beading and their latest collection of dresses come in the most dreamy pastel colors and I want.them.all! Blush tones, mints, lilacs, icy blues, it just doesn’t get better. I can’t wait for warmer weather so I can have the chance to wear this dress outdoors! Also on my wish list are the pink embellished skater dress, embellished lace mint dress, and the baroque blue sequin shift dress.
