my outfit: simple formula!

I absolutely love simple and fresh formulas for outfits. Take this outfit for example, what a no-brainer.  The short shorts and the loose top are a perfect combo for the high temps and ridiculous humidity.  And a fun necklace like this one makes me feel dressed up all day... even if I have no where very important to go.

For fall or a summer evening this outfit would be twice as nice with wide leg jeans or with skinny jeans and flats.  Come to think of it... I totally want to recreate this outfit with wide leg jeans.  Hmmmm.... stay tuned.

Oh, and hello! I actually have hair!  I know... I finally pulled my hair down from the top knot and decided to put the 'ole curling iron to it.  I have taken all of your input on my bangs to heart... I am just going to let them grow out for now... so they are WAY on the long side.  But I'll make a better decision in the fall.  I always love having you snappy ladies to bounce ideas off of.

Speaking of hair... ever since I got the ombre style my hair was seriously fried from all the color.  But I've brought it back super healthy and soft feeling with this awesome leave-in conditioner and this shampoo and conditioner on my hair.  Seriously, I have like brand new hair. It's awesome.  Plus I am only washing every two to three days, so that helps too.

Your hair looks fantastic! I'd really love to try washing my wavy (and in North Carolina's humid summer, frizzy) hair less often - can you give some tips on how to get by washing less?
