Low side bun, the best thing since sliced bread

IMG_0761IMG_0752

Button-up: NY and Co., Pants: F21, Belt: Hand me down, Shoes: Target, Chains: Came with another shirt, Earrings: Flirties

What the bun says: "Hello, I was feeling super sophisticated this morning so I swept my hair into this elegant updo. Yes, I did spend hours making it look perfect, but beauty is pain."

What the bun really means: "I sacrificed the time to style my hair in exchange for an extra 15 minutes in my warm, snuggly bed and cinnamon coffee accompanied by my new favorite blueberry cake with Dusty. Then, because I didn't have the time or motivation to wash and style my hair, I spent 2 minutes throwing it into this bun and called it a day."

Sneaky little bun.

P.S. I finally treated myself and ordered Photoshop CS5. Long overdue. Ok, I'm phyched!!!

P.S. again...Now that I've finished my 30, the weather has cooled down considerably and I'm back to freezing. Poopsicles.

P.S. Last time I promise...I was so going to post this last night but I have been attacked by a mad case of allergies lately and I fell into a Benadryl-induced coma before 9:00. So yeah.

Love,

Ramsey

I love these pants! They are so cute! But then again, so is everything you wear! I can't wait til my hair grows long enough to do a side bun. Its going to be a while though. I get bored waiting on it to grow!!

Trina said...

Adorable! I wish I had hair so I could wear a bun. Or a pony tail! I'll dream of that day for the rest of my life! I have food allergies and the best part of a reaction is getting to drug myself into oblivion with benadryl. Anyway, totally cute bun. Big fan.

Brittany said...

Your button-up is so cute and I think that white colour is definitely your colour! Furthermore that necklace looks really good with the austere pants.

so i have decided you need to have forever21 be a sponsor on your page because you are a walking advertisement for them! It seems like everytime i go to your blog, i end up checking out forever21 online to see if i can find the item you're wearing!in fact I LOVE the pants and i'm looking right now to see if they have them. soo cut!

A & C said...

Cute, don't you love having your wardrobe back?? I know I do:) I love your necklace, it was so cute when you put the flower on it!

Katelyn said...

I rocked the side bun today too! I love the floral/ruffle detail on your shirt mixed with all those necklaces.
I hate this southern weather -- can spring just show up to the party (for good) already?!?

Dana Richards said...

I laughed out loud when I read your bun reasoning, because I did the exact same thing this morning and I got so many compliments on how "professional" I looked haha professional = lazy :)

Yours Truly said...

Love the side bun girl!! This outfit rocks!

Fashion Momma said...

Adore the side bun! I do that trick, too, sometimes... and it really classes up an outfit, without trying so hard! I also LOVE these pants! So relaxed, but really classic! :)

Sydney said...

Oh feel better! I feel I wear the side bun every other day because it is THAT wonderful! And I have a question: what did they do with bread before it was sliced? Just take big chomps out of it?? Food for though! ;) Love your outfit, by the way!

I can't do a side bun anymore! I went to the salon and they cut a Salon Inch (which is real people 6 inches) off my hair! Ahh!

You, though, look divine. I hope the weather cooperates soon.
