Style Perspectives: Bright Pants and Hair Challenge Week 13

Hello Foxy Fashion Friends! Another week with the Style Perspective with The Blended Blog. Today Shaunacey from Simply Shanacey is talking about her signature look of bright pants, go check out her post here.
When I first met Shaunacey back in our Style challenges she had these pair of red pants that I coveted. Every time she wore them I wanted a pair and then I spent the next 1.5 years trying to find a pair that was red and that was like hers...and I FINALLY found it...these are the exact pair. Worth the price, super comfortable and it comes in 12 colors! I might have to pick up another pair.

This was the very first thing I ever bought at a consignment shop. Mr. and I were in Santa Barbara on a weekend getaway and found it.

I just love the cute detailing on the sleeves.

Of course I tried something new with my hair. I did the triple French braid again, but instead of putting it up in a bun I did extra braids and then braided all of it together. If I were to do it again I would make the French braids go a little further back on my head so when I braided all of the braids together there aren't the large gaps between everything.

In case you missed it, last week all the ladies styled Abbie's choice of Patterned Shirt and Neutral! What I learned last week is I need some patterned shirts, mine was definitely the most tame of them all. Which one is your favorite?

Now onto the hair challenge, week 13! Holy cow the time is flying by and I almost feel like I am getting better at it.

Last Wednesday I tried this twist to a fish tail.

It's sort of hard to see it in this picture. I couldn't get a clear picture for whatever reason...

Thursday I used the same curls from the day before and did a simple twist.

Friday I want to the kids museum with a friend and wanted to try a new hair style out. Mr. woke up early so I figured I would do my hair. I did a did a stacked fish tail with a Dutch French braid. I think I need more hair to do this, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Saturday was a lazy day and I didn't even get dressed till I had to go to dinner at a friends, so I threw my hair up in this simple pony tail twist.

Sunday I did the coolest hair style ever. My mom said it was her favorite hair that I've done so far.

I'm going to go ahead and give Mr. partial credit for this one. He helped me do the loop part. I couldn't get the rubber band in the right spot to do the loop, so he put it in the spot that I needed it to be, I told him I was going to give him credit. It wouldn't have looked nearly as good without him.

Next time I think I'll take more hair from the sides so that there isn't that straight part there.
Confession, I knew I was going to workout on Monday so I didn't want to wash my hair, so it was super dirty with how much hair spray I used from the style above...don't worry I was clean, I took a body shower....that was probably TMI...oh well.
That's it for this week. Not sure if I'm going to be able to do as many this coming week, but I'll certainly try! Join us next week for Style Perspectives, the theme is: A Spring Sweater Jeans and Flats
