Is anyone else extremely boring when it comes to their hair routine? As much as I’d love to experiment a little more, I just feel like I lack any real hair styling skill. It’s either curled or straightened, and down. Always down. I’ve watched hours of YouTube videos to try and learn a fishtail braid. I even had my 13-year-old cousin teach me all types of braids on vacation earlier this month.
Unfortunately, I haven’t learned/found any style I’m in love with, but I did accidentally make a really simple switch yesterday that I think has staying power. As basic as it sounds, I randomly blew dry my hair with a major side part, and I ended up loving it! It’s amazing how something as small as a dramatic hair part can instantly feel fresh and new.
What I’m trying to say is you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of this hairstyle here. It’s probably not even that noticeable, but this is literally the stuff that excites me :). Hopefully one day there will be some more experimental hairdos than a side part, but I think that’s still a far off time.
This is the epitome of a feminine summer dress. If a piece of clothing has feminine details to it, I’m pretty much hooked. This drawstring waist paired with the ruffled hem gives off a flirty vibe, and makes it perfect for any summer occasion! I paired this blue and white dress with some simple silver jewelry. The Tiffany bone cuff goes with virtually everything, and makes a statement without being overbearing. I finished the look with some sparkle on my ears, thanks to these earrings from Curate Boutique.

That is a very pretty summer dress. Love the heels too.
I love the side part! I don’t know if you conquered the fishtail braid but I was having some major difficulties until I saw this diagram. I think because the picture wasn’t actual hair I was able to see it and do it a little easier, hopefully it helps you too because fishtails are now a go-to for me! (see the diagram at:
Thanks girl! I still cannot get the fishtail braid down! Thanks for sharing that link, because that looks like it’ll help me immensely!
This dress is fabulous!!! I love it!
so pretty girl!
I love all the detail on that dress! You look darling!
Thank you Anna!
Oh my gosh, that dress is beautiful! I love every detail of it from the neckline to the ruffles. Amazing find, Olivia! And as a fellow boring hair person, a different part has saved me many many times from an otherwise simple hairdo. I can do braids on myself but I still can’t pull off the fishtail braid!
Love this dress! So pretty x
Such a great look! You’re gorgeous!
