Style Perspectives: A blazer and Sneakers and Hair Challenge Week 19

Today we're styling Carrie's prompt: A Blazer, Jeans, Tank and sneakers. When I read this prompt, I was like, huh? Blazers and sneakers?  What is going on? But you know what, I did what Carrie told me to do and I liked it! I got these Converse while in Vegas, actually Deena bought the same pair...because when you're outlet shopping and they have a buy one get one 50% off you find your closest friend...I was more than happy to help out.

Okay back to the outfit. Most of my blazers are darker colors. I do have this one bright blue blazer that I have yet to wear...need to figure out an outfit, I just know it's going to be super cute if/when I figure out how to wear it...Loft sales, you get me every time! Back to the topic...I knew I wanted to use my new pink converse, so I based my outfit around that. Do any of you do that? Decide you want to wear a certain thing and then plan your whole outfit around that. Well that's what I did...I think it worked out pretty well. And it was super comfy, great outfit for a casual date night!

I just love these shoes! Apparently I need to figure out how to cutely model shoes...this is pathetic.

And here is my hair shots. I really liked wearing my hair like this. Super fun and something a little more fancy than just a plain ponytail, but still felt casual.

In case you missed it, last week was Leggings and a Scarf look by Katie. Here is how everyone styled it, I know for many it was going out of their comfort zone, but I like that everyone tried something new for them. This is what it's all about, trying things you wouldn't normally try.
 Onto some hair things. Guess what? Since I was such a failure last week, I upped my game and actually did my hair this week! Okay well I did my hair the same twice...but I still count it. The second time I did the hair style it got better, so I'm counting it. I've seen the small top knot around and thought it was super cute, and Ellie did a video on it, and thought, hey that is pretty easy, so the very next day, small cute top knot it was.

Top Knot

Thursday I just wanted to my hair out of my face, and I love braids, so I braided it in a half crown type thing.

Friday we were off to Disneyland and I just didn't want it all up, so I braided it and tied it back. I love doing this style so much, easy and looks put together. I would like to add, this is after a full day at Disneyland, I forgot to take a picture before we this is after 10's a little messy, and I look massively tired.

I thought the top knot was cute, so cute that I did it again on Saturday. It was the perfect style for a 1 year old birthday party. But the second time I did it, I actually tied it with a hair tie for before starting the bun, I thought it came out way better, and not as fluffy. Again I forgot to take a picture before leaving for the 12 hours later and this is what you get.

Sorry for the poor lighting.

Sunday, for Mother's Day I wanted a soft romantic type look, so I did some twists and made it a half crown, sort of like this. 

So there you have it, not failing at this hair thing this week. We'll see how I do this coming week...I'm feeling pretty lazy. And I really need a hair bad! I just can't seem to find the time to actually get one done! Now go check out how every else styled this weeks prompt!
