Because you asked...and I'm a bit of a stinker when it comes to answering your questions promptly, here is a compilation of questions from you to me.
How do I do the "bump hair" and the big bun?
Tease, tease, tease. And don't be afraid to tease some more. The bun: Put your hair in a nice, high and tight pony and spray down those little fly-aways with your fave hairspray. Now tease the pony in sections until it is mega big and wrap it into a bun. Pin with bobbies and spray. It's that easy. Which is why it's my go-to for dirty hair days when I have approximately zero minutes to get ready. The Bump: Start teasing at the crown and go at it until you look like the instructor from an 80s work out video. Make sure to leave the front ear-to-ear section smooth. Now pin it half back and wrap the long part into a bun. Add a headband if you'd like!
Am I engaged?
Nope, but if i was, you'd be among the first to know. And the blog would probably be flooded with wedding planning goodness.
How many outfits do I try on in the morning or do I pick out the night before?
Usually the night before. If I'm lucky. If not, it usually starts with one piece that I know I'm going to wear and then I kind of build from that. Sounds organized, but I assure you the process is appropriately messy. AKA, "who threw clothes all over my room?"
How do I describe my style?
Hmmm. J.Crew wanna-be? Preppy but with a little twist probably.
What are my fave places to shop?
F21, Old Navy, Gap, Plato's Closet. Wherever I can get cute clothes within my teeny budget. It's not so much about where you get the clothes. More about knowing how to style them. I love the quote my mom gave me, "someone with true style doesn't need labels to pull it together."
What are my wardrobe essentials and what do I consider to be wardrobe essentials in general?
My denim shirt. I wear it all the time and with everything. It is my go-to for those days when wardrobe inspiration escapes me. Actually button-ups in general are the most versitile items you can add to your closet. Wear 'em over, wear 'em under. Wear 'em 'till your man asks if you actually own anything other than button-ups any more. Then wear a hott little black dress to remind him that you do, in fact. ;) Cute jackets and otherwise layerable clothes. Layers have a way of making things just look pulled-together. I promise, learning the art can take an ordinary outfit to catalogue-worthy. Like Baaaammm! Heels. Also look good on everyone. They make your legs look longer, your rear look perkier, and they instantly add class to an outfit. Skinnies? Check. Skirts? Check. Shorts? Check. Really, try it. You will add elegance to ya-self and put that little "I know I'm hott and Immona strutt it." in your step. Yes, you can fit that much into a step.
What do I believe?
I am Christian and I believe in the Bible. I was raised in a small-town, Southern Methodist church. We partake in worship, prayer, and delicious pot lucks with more food than you could shake a stick at. ;)
What did I major in in undergrad?
Criminology and Political Science (double major) with a minor in Psychology
Why did I decide to go to law school?
That's a tough one. I just decided that I wanted to try it and here I am.
Is law school just like Legally Blonde?
Haha...I haven't seen that one in a while, but yes and no. It's not as dramatic. But yes, they do call on you and drill you just like that. I suppose all law schools are different.
Alrighty, th-th-that's all for now folks! And don't forget to check out the Emporium giveaway, running until Friday!
