beauty trend to try -- prettied-up ponytails.


ATTAINABLE: HD Hanalei Buttondown, Strawberries
www.anthropologie.com; $78
Fresh produce easily tops my list of all-time favorite things about spring -- right along with pretty, crisp blouses. And this top combines the two beautifully. It's a simple white shirt in a classic shape, and the layering possibilities are nothing short of endless. It would be so sweet under a V or crew-neck sweater but is equally charming on its own when paired with boyfriend jeans. What a perfect boy-meets-girl look for spring.

While I love looking at pretty hairstyles, I have to admit that my daily M.O. is pretty basic: blow dry, flat iron, and go. Something about the cherry blossoms and warm breezes, however, has inspired me, and I think it's time to switch things up a bit. I've been particularly drawn to pretty ponytails lately. Whether a braided element is added or a lock of hair is simply wrapped around the base for a more polished look, these styles have a sophistication to them that I'm particularly drawn to without taking me too far out of my comfort zone.

I LOVE the Side Pony! :)

I'm always pinning hairstyles on Pinterest to try, but I usually end up sticking to my norm - long and wavy or a big bun. I really need to branch out more!

First of all, that shirt is adorable! And I have been trying for loose waves now that the weather is warming up (they are connected in my brain somehow), but I love a good ponytail and can't wait for my hair to be long enough for a fishtail braid!

Emily said...

Love the shirt and the hair tutorials~! I am always looking for new ways to do my hair.

Wow! So pretty! Such lovely ideas. Love the shirt too.

Stretchy camies I wore this winter under sweaters are great with those long flowy skirts too..for warmer weather.

I love messy ponytails. I can never do them the way I want. However, last night I put my hair in a low ponytail when I went to bed. When I woke up, it was perfect! So I guess the secret is to sleep on it all night. :)

Gorgeous! I'm a sucker for messy ponytails because...I am awful at doing my own hair! I have the same MO as you Josie. Wash, blow dry, flat iron, GO! I'll have to really try the looks above.

I did a side pony in my blog!

Gloria said...

Love these looks! It always takes me sooo long to make ponytails perfectly tousled & messy (how ironic!)

Honey said...

i love the side pony. it's so cute. too bad my hair is curly, so it looks a bit weird if i do it. i'm gonna try it with straight hair.

LifestyleBohemia said...

LOVE the perfectly curled side pony - perfect for the beach!

These are beautiful ponytails!! I used to wear different, fun ponytails back in high school, and honestly, haven't worn my hair in one since. I don't know why I stopped. This post actually makes me want to give some of these a try!

Erin said...

Hey Miss Josie! I totally agree-love these pretty ponytails! Especially the second one + her natural makeup! So pretty!

I think I'm going to ask my hair chick to help me try the first one. I'd resemble a contortionist trying to go it on my own. Gymnasio in the banyo early in the morning is not attractive up in this dojo.

And yes, I do believe I've invented my own language.
