Fix Me Up Friday: A Twist On Your Everyday Pony

I don’t know about you guys, but personally (when I have enough hair…) I tend to live with my hair pulled back in some way during the summertime.  In an attempt to add some sort of style to this unfortunate and boring ‘do, I am always searching for new, fun, and chic ways to add a little life to my dull old ponytail. Well, today I have an amazing one for you all that I cannot wait to try out in the coming months! It looks like it could potentially be a little tricky, but I think with a little practice and lots of patients (something I need to work on anyway!), it is definitely doable and maybe even easy!

Not Your Average Pony - Fix Me Up Friday

Is that not adorable or what?! I know I am personally so excited to get to try this one out and I definitely plan on practicing before I actually attempt to wear it out (I have a feeling my first few tries might not be very pretty…), but I will certainly keep y’all posted about how it goes and if it looks presentable maybe I’ll even share my results!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go?

What do you guys think? Is that fun or what?! I don’t know about you, but all of these items (well except the nail polish… I already have those two and love them for the summertime!) are definitely going on my wishlist of summer items! Let me know what you think of this outfit and I would love any suggestions you may have for me! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!
