My mom owns an embroidery shop, so we always joke that everything I own is monogrammed. While not everything sports my initials, I have acquired quite a few monogrammed items over the past several years. I have three ball caps like this that I love. I feel like the opportunity to wear a ball cap should arise more, being a personal trainer and all, but surprisingly, I wear them less than you might think. Even still, I’m all for something that is both chic and functional. Ball caps, denim jackets, printed jeans – all things I can get behind.
When I told my husband I was doing this “non-girly” outfit, and described it to him…. he said “there are heels, it’s still girly”. Okay, that may be true, but this is as tomboy as it gets around here. (Well, aside from the gym-rat clothes that I wear every day??) And when my sister took my pictures, she said I looked too cute, and I needed to look “tougher”. See, they don’t sell “tough” in a store. I thought I could just buy the look, but turns out, you also need the attitude behind your outfit to really rock it.
I created my own clipless curling iron by removing the clip from a curling iron I already owned, but never used. Free curling wand! I thought it may work okay, but would be surprised if I could achieve anything close to what I had seen some people create with the clipless curling iron. It looked like magic. I’m really happy with these curls, and will definitely be recreating this hairstyle. I’ve been a DIY nut lately! Hmmmm…. what else can I
Before you judge me too harshly for this outfit, you have to take a look here and here. Maxi skirts and buttoned up denim jackets can be done well. I had good intentions. Also, am I always inspired by the same bloggers? I think so.
