dress: target | necklace: pretty things by meg | sandals : rainbow
i went shopping in my closet again. and found this awesome maxi dress. even better is that it goes perfectly with my rust and my mustard ruffle necklace from pretty things by meg. i love when outfits and accessories coordinate so well, don’t you? you’d have to be living under a rock (or just not reading my blog, tsk tsk) to not know that i’m currently obsessed with maxi dresses. perhaps the best part being that it’s an outfit in itself and i don’t have to shave my legs… every day.
does my hair look different to you? well besides the fact that my perm is getting more and more relaxed by the day, i decided to go for super side swept bangs. problem is, i ask my hairstylist to do this for me almost every other haircut. i try and train my bangs to stay that well with cream in the daytime and a bobby pin at night, however, just you watch, in a few weeks it will be back to a more centered side part. you watch.
What are your tactics for training your hair?
My bangs have a mind of their own sometimes. I can usually them them to stay in place but if I try anything else they flop right back. Right now they are sort of all over the place and I think it’s because I got a side swept fringe.
love the maxi dress – i am obsessed with them too but have a hard time finding them bc i’m so short! *tear*
i love this maxi on you and the red necklace really brings out the reds in the dress! and the side-swept bangs look really classy on you. and i have the hardest time training my bangs too — i find that blow drying them while pushing them to the side helps them stay side-swept a little bit more. 🙂
cute & little
Your maxi dress is so pretty! 🙂
Perfect for summer time!
Haha, I don’t train my hair. It has a mind of its own. Love the dress!
That’s such a pretty maxi dress. The more I see of Maxi dresses and skirts the more I’d like to try them.
Haha my hair can’t be trained. I can never make it look as good as the hairdresser.
Oh you look so cute!! My bangs can’t be trained either. I put them back at night all the time, but in the morning, I have to blow dry them to the side again. They’re just wild! But you look great with your haircut and dress!
It definitely takes patience to train bangs. Make sure you always blow dry them the way you want them to go.
I love the dropped waist and the print of this beautiful dress. I do love your hair… but I know what you mean about bangs. They are finicky things, aren’t they?
I really love the ruffle necklace you are wearing and the side swept bangs look great on you 🙂
Maxi dresses everywhere! Resisting…temptation! I too like when an outfit and an accessory appear to be born for one another! =P
As for bangs, mine are side-swept, but I prefer them to be more straight. I don’t have a hard time keeping them to the side because that’s the first thing I do after I get out of the shower with washed hair. 😀
Aw.. you look so sweet! I only wish I could wear a maxi dress.. I’m too short. I’d trip and fall! You look great with bangs too. : )
Dearest sweet sandy, you are beautiful and i love your side bangs. 🙂 That is a lovely maxi dress and it does go so well with your beautiful necklace. Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!
i have ZERO maintence really for my hair – it falls where it falls ..
And that is why I don’t do side swept bangs – I can’t get them to stay put. So I either do blunt cut bangs (like I have now) or grown out bangs.
ha, neither can mine! YOUR bangs look great! great idea with cream and a clip – i don’t think i could sleep like that.
love the maxi dress – i love Target but never would have guessed. you are a fashionista!
unfortunately I can’t train my hair :\
CUTE! the necklace looks perfect with it! thanks for the shout out sandy! i have started contemplating getting bangs again but it is a little frightening because mine are very hard to train, especially with the curls. but i’m so sick of my hair, i need a change! without chopping it!)
Lovely dress! It takes a couple of washes until side-swept bangs stay in place (or at least that’s what happened to mine hehe) xo
LOVE THE COLOURS SANDY! oh and i do the bobby pin + hair product thing too… and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t!
I adore your bangs. They look wonderful. And your dress is one of the more flattering maxi dresses I’ve seen.
(I awarded you at my blog – http://www.randomnessfromtheaddiecorner.blogspot.com. Congrats!)
geez I am in love with your necklace!
Shopping in your own closet is the BEST! Love that maxi and it does go perfectly with the dress. LOVE 🙂 xoxo
you look cute! 🙂
i have to train my bangs by blowing them dry the way i want them to go while they’re wet. it helps! and then using product too.
haha, yeah, i’ve kinda given up on trying. use bobby pins during the day to pin back in a variety of ways. just go with what your hair is trying to tell you.
PS: all about the maxis!! nice!
You’re right, I think the necklace goes perfectly with that dress! I think your bangs look great and perfectly side-swept, but I totally know what you mean about stubborn hair. I have really weird cowlicks on my hairline at the nape of my neck, which always causes problems, especially trimming my short ‘do.
I absolutely love your new hair and that dress on you! 🙂
my bangs only want to be side swept! hahaha they refuse to ever lay flat! It’s the whole natural curl thing… keep at it, I’m sure they’ll get the hint eventually!
i like the side swept on you! my hair is so gross now since im growing it out and havent had a decent cut since..um…november!
btw i dont think i have told u…or maybe i have? ugh my memory..but my friend back home (minnesota) said that her fiance is friend with your. Her name is Hanna and her fiance is Duy. 🙂
