Braided Up-do

28 Jun

Summer Hair Trend: The Braided Headband. You’ve seen it all over hollywood from formal to casual, the look is very versatile!

So, we love the look not only for its versatility, but it is a fun alternative to the standard ponytail as the temperature rises, and is a genius way to mask second-day strands! It is easy!

Check out the tutorial we found on Pinterest:


Do you like the look???  I do.  I am going to try showing it off today!

how is it going how there in cyber land?  it has been an odd start to our summer here in northern ohio.  during the last week of school i had the air on and was a hot mess outside.  now?  rain, clouds and under 70.  odd.  but i am not complaining…i am not a hot weather fan.

anyway…this summer is going to prove to be very exciting for our family.  we have purchased a property close to the lake for a weekend/summer home with my parents!  not sure about you…but i love seeing a home come togehter…hate the work.  haha.  although since we don’t have to live there maybe this won’t be as bad.  don’t fret…you will see lots of photos and posts with before and after and projects…but for now…let’s dish on what i should wear to a lake party event…


what screams LAKE more than this mint and blue chevron dress?  and how do you pass it up at only $39.99 (remember i like to purchase everything for under $50).


what fun is this dress?  some different colors and different patterns…this would be unique at a lake party.  and again…$39.99

what about a cooler day?  one of my favorite color combinations is orange and navy.  this dress  ($45.95) screams me (except i don’t love to show my arms…but at least my legs are hidden haha!)


i think this would be a cute necklace  ($32.99) with all the dresses.  i tend to keep my accessories small and light when around sand.


you can find all these and more Made in the USA product at MiUS Collection!  and of course, we are linking this post with lindsey at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday 🙂

wiSww…what i “should” wear wednesday

i’mmmmm baaaaack  (not sure that you can read that how i meant it to sound….)

anywho…it’s me, carrie.  how have you been?  we have been crazy which is why i took the blog break.  too much to discuss unless i had a personal blog (which i don’t) but all is good in the hood and now let’s get on what i “should” wear wednesday.  as always, linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy


now…i know this is what i should  wear wednesday…but i have a confession to make…i actually own this maxi skirt and i love it!  i wear it with a white t-shirt because the owner of MiUS collection said i should invest in white t-shirts for summer.  she also said her sister wears a cute white button up shirt with it.  personally…because i love black..i think you could wear a black t-shirt with it too…

i love the daisy chain necklace and i think the whisper pink ring would be a great hint of pink…just like the skirt has.
