I am coming to you with beach waves in my hair, and beach colors in my clothing. However, I am still here in little old Grundy, Virginia instead of being at the beach with the BFF’s. They are sending me updates daily, and pictures of their adventure. Since Ashleigh is here, I didn’t get to go play with them, but I wouldn’t change a thing. Because I am trying to be a good friend, I am wishing them sunshine and no rain. This is a sneak peek at my hair. I bet you can’t tell much difference than my before pictures. It is a subtle change, we only cut off the asymmetric longer pieces. But, because I have it all curled, you can’t even tell I did anything. Lol! Joe was not a fan of this style, but the girls at work loved it. I think the curls, and the length of the hair, make my face look even rounder. That is something I don’t need any help with.😳 I used my straightener to achieve this look. I know it makes no sense to use a straightener to make curls, but that is what I did. Here is my tutorial I did back a month ago on how I style my hair. I did basically the same thing, I just go really slow to make a curl. To make the vertical curls, you hold the straightener vertically, and then twirl it in your hand as you pull outward. Make sure you hold the straightener closed tight all the way to the end of your piece of hair. That will make sure the ends are curled, instead of sticking out. Is that about as clear as mud???I bought this top on my way to the GFWC Virginia woman’s club conference. The BFF’s and I stopped at a boutique, and I found this on the clearance rack. This is the perfect time of year to buy items for next summer. This top is really cute, and I just love the soft aqua color. I refer to this color as my beach colors, and it has become one of my favorites this year. The top is by Entro.
Top: Similar | Similar | Similar (sm-3x)I have on a Mykla necklace by Plunder Design. This is not one of my favorite jewelry pieces, but I wanted to wear gold. Tassel jewelry is HUGE right now. It has been in style all spring and summer, and I don’t see it going away any time soon. So, for 24.00 you can wear one of the latest trends in jewelry. For all you teachers out there, your class will think you are so “hip!” Hahaha I have an August contest running with Plunder. EVERYONE who places an order from Plunder through me in the month of August, will be entered in for a $25.00 Plunder gift certificate. You can buy a bracelet, and you will be entered into the contest. To shop with me, here is the website: http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens Try copying and pasting this in the address line, and hopefully it will work. If not, then type in my stylist number 241007 in the stylist box at checkout. I have started an online party, and there is a dropdown box where you can choose Tania’s P Party at checkout also. Several of you ladies have already taken me up on this offer. Good Luck!I know my pants look a little wrinkled and rumpled. I normally take my pictures first thing in the mornings as I head out the door for work. However, this morning the tripod leg was not functioning correctly, so I couldn’t take the pictures. Joe worked on it for me when I got home, so these pictures are after I worked all day. If it wasn’t for the Urban Decay All Nighter spray, my makeup would have probably been worn off. These pants are a pair by Cato Fashions.
Aqua Pants: Chico’s | J Crew | Eye Catch (Plus)This white fringed beach cover-up is also from the same little boutique. I bought it earlier in the spring, so it is not on their website any longer. You do not have to wear this with a bathing suit, although I do. Here is where I even wore it with a dress.
Cover-Up: Similar | SimilarYou might have noticed in the picture above, that I changed handbags. I was trying to decide which one I wanted to carry this morning, so I thought you might like to see how changing one element in an outfit, changed the entire look. It is a small change, but I think it make a big difference.
White Tote: Similar | Similar | SimilarWhich purse did you like the best? The Turquoise patent leather satchel is by Dooney & Bourke. (Similar) This about does it for my beach look. I promise I am not doing a rain dance for Bertha and Sandy. Haha I will have my own beach excursion soon enough when I attend the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City this Labor Day.
