..Waving the White Flag

The deets: J.Crew pencil skirt; LOFT top; Ivanka Trump heels; Michael Kors watch; Betsy Johnson necklace; Essie "Turquoise and Caicos" nails.

Once in a blue moon when all the stars are aligned correctly and the winds are blowing at a very precise angle at the special time of year in spring when the air is warm but not yet humid...something of super-natural proportions happens...my hair frizz decides to put down it's weapons, wave the white flag in defeat, and finally let my locks cooperate with me (aka lay perfectly straight)..I know, I know, aaahhhhmazing.  You KNOW it's going to be a good day what this happens.

Honorable mention goes out to John Frieda's Frizz Ease shampoo.

  1. Beautiful!! Love the outfit :) And have you ever tried Moroccan Oil? It does wonders to my frizzy, thick, naturally curly but would rather wear it straight, hair. I actually buy a brand called One N' Only...it's called Argan Oil, but is more or less the same thing as Moroccan Oil. I use the shampoo, conditioner, and oil...and it tames my hair almost perfectly! I can't imagine I ever went without it.

  2. I LOVE this time of year too!! Unfortunately today was most certainly not like that for me. Humid, hazy, and muggy....ick. A curly gurl with bangs worst nightmare. :( You look great!
