Swanky Scrunchie

Scrunchie – Whenever I’m chillen in my sweats, there is a 99.9% chance my hair is in a scrunchie. It’s the epitome of hang-time, the grungiest of grunge looks, and the cloudy with a chance of never leaving bed kind of spirit. Swankyadj. 1. A person or object that is posh, high-class, glamorous, classy, upmarket, etc. Paired side-by-side I consider this the godfather of oxymorons; quite frankly it is the paradigm that runs not only my life, but also my fashion style.

            I’m jetting off to Mexico in just a few days so I decided to spice it up a bit by adding hair and nail tips. Usually I’m boring and my manicures are routine; I get the same color every time. But hey, if I’m going on spring break my nails should get a little fiesta action as well. Go big or go home, I chose to go big with blue. Each nail is a different shade, fading from darkest to lightest. Hop on the ombre trend and try it yourself at home! Nothing is worse than straightening your hair with humidity levels higher than the Empire State building. In weather like this nix the iron and let your hair go au naturel.  Next, add some Pocahontas braids and you have yourself sexy seductress beach hair. My inspiration was the first picture I posted, however I altered it a bit and made my own version. It’s quite simple if you know how to French braid. I French braided horizontally, and when picking up the next strand of hair, I dropped some along the way, causing a cascading effect. Sorry in advance for the lack of posing this upcoming week, unfortunately I will be reading a book on the beach in Puerto Vallarta (ha-ha).

(Shirt: Alexander Wang, Jeans: Gap, Flats: Sam Edelman, Bag: Balenciaga, Necklace: from Croatia)

            Captain Jack Sparrow coming to you live from the living room! Well not literally, but this oversized striped grunge tee reminds me of the notorious pirate. Usually I pair this shirt with leggings and boots for class. However, gray-washed jeans, piano flats, and a statement necklace use their magical powers and take this tee to the next level; it’s the perfect ensemble for a night of drinks with the gals. The ultimate sartorial swank this season is pattern mixing, hence the stripes and leopard. I am trying my best to think of some clever way to relate leopard to pirates, but it’s just not happening. Pardon my creative juice today, and stay toooned for more posts. That’s allllll folks.
