beauty trend to try -- beachy waves.

 
COVETING: Milly Dickies Shorts
www.shopbop.com; $195 
I hate to sound like a broken record, but summer just gets so HOT.  Thus, I'm always on the hunt for fun, classy-looking shorts with details that make them special.  This little Milly pair is perfect.  The chevron stripes are a fabulous print, and the inseam is just the right length -- it allows for major versatility, meaning that these shorts can be worn with a pair of flat sandals for day or paired with heels and a sheer button-down for evening.


I'm all about low-maintenance beauty in the summer -- because, honestly, who has the time (or the patience) to put a lot of effort into looking fantastic when it's a million degrees outside, super humid, and your perfectly-straightened hair is going to frizz the second you step outside anyhow?  And hairstyles just don't get much more warm-weather-appropriate than undone beachy waves.  They're not SUPPOSED to be perfect, making them the ideal, relaxed look for summer.  Though I've never quite mastered this style (I blame the freshwater environment in which I grew up), I'm determined to do so this year so that I can be as low-key pretty as my inspiration.

Love wearing my hair like this--I almost have it down, but then the muggy weather causes tons of frizz, bleehhh! I want to master the beachy/undone braid for days when my mop gets out of control :)

girlfriend, i wish i could do beachy waves.. but with my curly hair, if i do that and sleep on my hair, it won't move in the morning. i really wish i could go wavy, i can either do straight or curly. hope you had a happy 4th.

I agree! Beachy waves are so perfect and the best excuse to put the dryer down ;) I still have yet to let my hair air dry, but it's getting close because the temps are really heating up!

It's just too hot to dry my hair, so I have defaulted to waves!

Erika said...

I always love Blake Lively's hair. She has beachy waves down to a T! :)

Those shorts are too cute! Refinery29 had a great feature on how to get beachy waves with a straightener a while back - look it up, it was super easy and I FINALLY mastered the look! :)
