Fashion Friday #12

It's FRIDAY!  And that means it's time for another outfit and other fashion ramblings from yours truly.

I've been wanting to know how to transfer a collage to my blog for so long now, so I asked my friend Kendra from House of Ficek how she did hers.  POWERPOINT, people.  I should have known.  But now I do!  So, here's what I'm wearing:

Here's a closer view:


Gray Button Up Coat: Nordstrom- on sale for only $32!
Dress: Meadow Boutique- Seattle, WA
Leggings: Forever 21
Gray Boots: Nine West Outlet- so comfy!


I love this outfit because it's easy to throw on, cute and still able to be worn in the winter with a coat.  I'm glad I found it, because I don't like to wear jeans and shirt everyyyy day of my life.  Dresses spice it up a little.  Do you agree? Or are you a jeans girl?

Today for the hair portion, I thought I'd teach you how to use your curling iron to get this look:


It looks more natural than doing ringlet curls and I've had a few people ask how to do it.  So here's my attempt in answering that! {PS. I hate hearing my voice on camera.  Such a weird feeling! Okay, I'm stalling.  Here we go...}

Hope that helps a tiny bit! Trick is just to hold the rod down so you spiral your hair around it (: I use a 3/4" barrel.  Maybe I'll do more of these tutorials...or maybe not.  We'll see how ya'll {I never say that...I think I'm picking it up from Megan. Hehe} like this one!
If anyone tries it, send me pictures and I'll post them!

Next week will be Fashion Friday: Christmas Outfit Edition.  So if you want to join me in posting your Christmas attire, I would love it!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  What are your plans? I'm going to see the new movie with Owen Wilson and Reece Witherspoon- "How Do You Know".  I'll let YOU KNOW what I think after I see it (;

Love and Fashion Friday,

  6. Super cute outfit, girl!

    I'm definitely a jeans girl. I'm pretty simple, BUT I do agree that little dresses are so fun. x

  7. I love dresses, but I can really only get away with them in the summer for work. I once wore leggings and someone told me I looked like I was 12! Plus now it's so cold. So right now, I'm all about jeans but in the summer? I wear dresses everywhere, so comfy but looks so nice!

    ps- cute video :) makes me miss my long hair and my hot tools curling iron :(

  22. Love the outfit and the curling tips...I am notoriously bad at doing my hair :-), so hopefully this will help, ha!

  23. Love the leggings! I have grey and black ones. I wear them with really long sweaters b/c I have had two children and I ate too many brownies. Do the math. ;)
