beauty trend to try -- the topknot.

ATTAINABLE: Gap Scalloped Lace Mini Skirt; $89.95 
What can I say about this adorable little Gap mini skirt?  I love the lace overlay and scalloped hem, and the creamy shade is so pretty.  I love how sweet it is for summer but that the fabric is luxe enough to carry over into fall when paired with opaque tights and a pretty pair of pumps.  How sweet would this be with a sheer top for a floaty, flirty summer look?

As humid days wear on, it's easy for me to default to a few key looks: denim cutoffs, Henley-style tank tops, flat sandals, and, when the weather gets particularly sticky, ponytails.  However, I've decided that it's definitely time for a hairstyle upgrade that helps me keep my cool, controls my frizz, and looks chic all at the same time.  As my hair is finally growing out a little, I'm excited to explore the world of topknots -- and have sought out some fabulous inspiration and tutorials to help me in my quest for a fun new style.

Ooh, I love this summer hairstyle! I tend to wear my hair boho a lot - down, but with two pieces in the front twisted and clipped back. :)

I wish I could make my hair look that cute!

So cute! I definitely love the messier topknot more than the super neat one--especially on myself : )

I love that GAP skirt- I was surprised it was GAP, btw! And a top knot is the only way to go in this humidity. I am trying to grow out my bangs so I have been doing a little pouf with them or a deep side part. There is a lot of variation you can add to a top knot!

I love the bun on others, but it looks awful on me ;(

I always try to achieve this but can never recreate it. I think it is so adorable!

I've seen this hair style a few places lately and I really like it! It's cute, not fussy, out of your face and off your neck in the hot summer heat. Plus, it takes a lot of attention off of your tresses and onto whatever fabulous outfit you're wearing!

La falda es muy bonita. Me gusta el moño desenfadado.

I just let me hair down during the summer or swing it over my shoulder in a braid :) casual and carefree style for the hot weather.

I love that lace skirt! Hopefully it goes on sale, I'd love it add it to my closet!

I love this hairstyle very much. If I had long hair I would definitely be trying it.

Jessica said...

The topknot is such an easy go-to summer style. I inadvertently rock it every day around 3 pm when I'm getting tired at work!

Ashley said...

I've been all about the top knot lately. It's the only way to beat the heat with long (er) hair!
