Ever since I watched Ma Nouvelle Mode’s triple twist updo hair tutorial, I’ve been hooked on trying out new things with my hair.  I’ve never been good at doing anything besides wearing it down, half up or in a ponytail all my life.  Most recently I’ve got the neat blogger bun down and now I’m so excited to have this triple twist updo down.  All it required was a hair tie and a load of bobby pins and literally took 5 minutes to do.  The best part?  After wearing it for half a day, I can take the pins out and I’ll have pretty wavy hair for the rest of the day.  Two simple hairdos all in a day’s work, not too shabby if you ask me!  Well on my trip to LA last week, I actually ended up perming my hair (again) so I’m excited to show it to you soon and play with all the curly hair updos now.

It’s been awhile since I’ve used my Burberry bag and I thought it was about time it made a debut again!  It is the perfect addition to this black + pink + tan outfit.  I love that this mod dress can go from day to night and even would look great cinched with a belt!  I saw this jacket a few weeks ago while at the styling event for the Kansas City Fashion Show pre-party and after a model wore it, I snatched it up from her.  I think it’s the perfect little jacket to throw on over a Spring outfit (whenever it decides to stop snowing and warm up already).  As for the accessories, I am totally in love with my new panda earrings as they are just the perfect little touch to give this outfit a little whimsy and the intertwining rose gold and yellow necklace is a great statement or everyday piece.  And the shoes?  Well I just had to get it on the d’orsay trend, it was only a matter of time.  😉

    I love this hairstyle! I’ve been in kind of a rut lately with my hair. I need to be a bit more adventurous and try out some new styles!

    I know I need to locate that minty blouse. The via (link location) is vague. I will hunt it down and let you know. It is gorgeous, huh? Your spring ensemble looks warm and comfy for a spring rain type day. Thank YOU for following me.

    I love this classic look. Your shoes are so cute! Great job on the hair too! I never stray too far from a ponytail, a bun, or wearing it down.

    I can’t wait to see who wins the Gilded arrow bracelet! It was backordered for 2 months because it was so popular! Retails at $39! Get to purchasing bloggers! The bracelet has got to go to some fun fashionista!

    Those panda earrings are too cute! I need to start playing with my hair more, I’m not imaginative enough but there are so many great tutorials. You’ve inspired me to want to try some, after I color my hair this weekend! 🙂

    Your hair is absolutely adorable! It makes me want to grow my hair out again.

    I love the necklace and shoes! I’ve actually ordered the eact pair from LuLus. Unfortunately I’m returning. My feet are too flat. And I was so eager to jump on the d’orsay flats trend. It looks good on you. 🙂
