Twisted Ponytail

This ponytail is one of the simplest, quickest hair-dos and appears a lot more complicated than it actually is. My mom used to do my hair like this when I was little and I have been doing it ever since.

Steps:

  1. Put your hair into a low ponytail and secure it.
  2. Create a gap in the middle of your hair right above the hair tie. 
  3. Flip your ponytail toward your head and push it through the gap. Pull it out and tighten.

One Top, Two Ways

Outfit 1: Top c/o StyleMint, Skirt Maje, Tights Target, Loafers c/o ShoeMint, Watch Michael Kors, Bracelets Stella & Dot, Purse c/o Rebecca Minkoff

Outfit 2: Top c/o StyleMint, Leather Jacket Kenna T, Purse c/o Rebecca Minkoff

Striped t-shirts are probably the most worn and versatile piece of clothing in my wardrobe. From weekday to weekend, they work for anything. StyleMint  does a great job at making simple striped tees in different colors, fabrics and styles. You can see some of my other looks here, here, here and here. This time, I paired the Finn T-shirt two different ways: The first look was for work and day of meetings. I wore my StyleMint Mona loafers with a simple black skirt and tights. I changed into deep purple jeans and a leather jacket to grab dinner later that night with my husband.
