Overall, I'm obsessed.


I love how easy they are to style. Not only can you make the outfit casual, you can dress them up as well. Converse, heels, flats... they all go with overalls.

For the spring season, I like to focus on what I can wear on top of the overalls, not just underneath. Pair them with an army style jacket, leather jacket, or even a plaid shirt (just in case the weather is too hot, you can tie it around your waist).

I do this with my jeans, so I can totally see me doing this with overalls. Roll or cuff the ends. It can make the outfit have a completely different look just by doing that simple trick!

Rocking a pair of printed overalls? Don't be afraid to pair them with another print! Or a plain tee or tank or even a graphic tee.

ALSO, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!!! Whether it with a tote bag, sunglasses, a hat, or some bling, you can never go wrong. I love wearing stackable bracelets, so that would be my go to.

What is your favorite way to style overalls?

Heatless Waves

Who doesn't want heatless waves?

For months... Yes months, I've been searching and testing different "heatless wave" tutorials (too many tutorials left my hair kinky or I ended up having to use heat.. No thanks) and sea salt sprays (not only have to work, but smell good also #picky). I can FINALLY say that I have found the best tutorial and spray that work. 
Want to achieve this look? Here's how to get it: John Frieda's Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray & Heatless Headband Waves tutorial. 

John Frieda's Sea Salt Spray is light and doesn't weigh my hair down. The smell is not a perfume or heavy smell, but a light coconut-y smell. As soon as I spray it on my hair I can instantly see the waves start to form and it doesn't leave my hair dry. 

This Heatless Headband Waves tutorial is by far the best one I've ever found. I've seen so many where I have to use a million clips or have awkward buns all over my head. I nanny super early in the morning so it's nice to just wake up and go, and be able to leave my hair like this while working and then come home and taken it down and my hair is wavy and I'm ready for class.  I've tried other heatless headband wave tutorials before, but it says take a small section of hair, wrap it around the headband, and then add hair and repeat until finished. My hair gets so kinky and just ew. This one, you will twist half your hair, and put all of that around the headband... Just watch it and try it!

You can use the sea salt spray without having to do the tutorial, but they're better together :)

Let me know how it works for you!
