Happy Humpday ♥ It’s another crazy busy week with Award Season in full swing and events galore for me to attend…
It’s kind of crazy that when I was younger I would watch all of these Award Shows + Red Carpet Moments on TV or check them out in magazines and now I get to experience them for real in person! Pretty cool huh?
While I love getting glam + showing off my red carpet style hehe I also love a chic yet casual look with plenty of POPS Of Color for a bright + bold moment…and this outfit sure embodies that 😉
I LOVE bright + bold colors!! They just make me so so happy…so for a bright pink top paired with a bright yellow bag of course I had to shoot on a blue backdrop!
Summer Time Fine♥ With June just days away, I decided it was about time to prep for summer + get a new ‘do’! I have been so swamped with work, moving + the blog that I realized I haven’t actually pampered myself or gotten my hair done in about a year (literally since I moved here last June from NY) :p Cray Cray! Luckily I finally got the chance to get a little ‘refresh’ during Ulta Beauty’s Gorgeous Hair Event! Some new highlights, a fresh cut + a new Missy!
I headed to the Ulta Beauty right near my new apartment in Burbank to get a full day of rest, relaxation + a fresh new look! Nothing screams summer like some fresh new color! I have never been one to over-process my hair, so subtle baby highlights is what my stylist and I discussed…the perfect fit for me! They are low maintenance, don’t need a lot of upkeep + even when they grow out they look like my hair is naturally sun-kissed! Just what summer calls for! I also got some subtle layers to assist with holding curls (I love curling my hair when I have the time, but it is sometimes challenging when it comes to holding a curl…these new layers help with adding some texture to my hair to make long lasting curls possible)♥
The only way to show off a fresh summer do is with a bright new outfit! Let’s break it down — Nothing makes me happier than neon…and a cute pair of heels!
My neon pink dress was actually a clearance find at Forever 21 but I found similar options below:
I layered a white boyfriend blazer over it so it can be styled for work or play!
So I may have titled this post ‘Black Florals‘, but after scrolling through all of the shots of me in this post I may as well name it ‘hair grab‘ since that seems to have become one of my ‘go-to’ poses while shooting new looks :p I am not quite sure how I always end up posing the same way (especially when whoever is shooting tells me to act ‘natural‘…my version of natural is being posed I suppose haha) but as I keep going through my iPhoto library I tend to see a ton of ‘hair grabbing / flipping’ shots #LongHairDontCare!
The past few weeks have been a little hectic for me which has in turn given me less time to blog, but rest assured once I am settled in to my new apartment with my little work area (complete with an instagramworthy set up of course :p) I will be back on track and writing tons more content (hopefully…fingers crossed haha)
