Festive Fashion with Irresistible Me

Hi my loves!

The year has absolutely flown by.  My new job has been really demanding, leaving little time for the blog.  I miss you! With the upcoming holiday and new year, I wanted to share a quick hair tutorial and some festive frocks.  While you're out getting your gifts this week, be sure to grab something for yourself!

My favorite style to wear during the holidays is super easy, and just requires some help from Irresistible Me real hair extensions.  I'm wearing pretty much the full pack of Royal Remy 22" set here.  Right now their sets are up to 80% off so I highly recommend picking up some!

For this style, I first clipped up half my hair on top.  Then I clipped in the full large weft to the bottom half of my hair.  That's the "half down" part you see here.

Then, I clipped some smaller wefts into the top half, parted that half down the middle, like I'm making pigtails, and did a regular braid on each side.  I brought the braids together, folded them over each other, and just pinned to create the intricate weave look.

The front looks like simple half up style, but everyone is always surprised by the intricate back! And trust me, it takes like ten minutes to do.  Clip, braid, pin.  Messy is good!

My extensions have held up really well.  I style them and curl them, but try not to use products. Just be gentle and yours will last just as long!  They still feel soft and healthy.If you need help picking out a length or color, check out my first post here

Now that you have the hair down....I picked out some outfits for all the parties you still have!  I think I'll be wearing a jumpsuit this new year's because I'm going to a concert...What are you doing?  I'm super excited to be going home to LA.  I miss the sunshine!

I hope you have the happiest holiday season!  In my new year's post, I'll be sharing what next year may bring for little gold book, but for now, let's enjoy the festivities and drink extra bubbly!

Harvest Season

Happy Halloween Week!

This weekend, I explored some gorgeous farms & orchards in the DC metro area.  It was a blast! I had so much fun getting into my cozy outfit, picking pumpkins and apples, and drinking tons of cider!  My first stop was Butler's Orchard Farm for their cute pumpkin patch!

I absolutely love fall so I am making the most of it :) We also went over to Walter's Orchard next door for apple picking! Because we were late to the season, there were only Fuji apples left, but they're my favorite kind to eat, so I didn't mind!  I loved every minute of this cliche fall activity, especially because it was my first time!  I really love the east coast so far, there is so much to do and see.

Outfit Details:

Flannel Blazer by Banana Republic; Scarf by Burberry: Sweater by H&M (old); Leggings by Forever 21;

Boots by Tory Burch (i'm wearing last year's version, I linked this year!); and Bag by Rebecca Minkoff

So I definitely wish my hair was this fabulous on a daily basis, but I'm wearing  my 100% human hair clip in hair extensions by Irresistible Me.  My hair is about 1/4 of the thickness you see here in real life :X This is my favorite way to style them, so let me know if you want to see a post with some details on how I do this!  For now, check my blog post here and the website here to pick up your own set of real hair extensions!

Happy fall my loves!!! Tag me in all your activities! I want to see what you're up to for the season :)

Fall-ing for the East Coast

Hi Y'all!!!

I am loving my move to the East Coast! There's so much history here and everything is just so different. I'm in love with the fall weather, all the trees, my new apartment (which is still pretty unfurnished LOL)...It feels so amazing to know that I made a commitment to chasing my dreams and finally I'm where I want to be!

This past weekend I walked around Old Town Alexandria, which is so charming.  It's full of gorgeous row houses, tiny shops, and yummy places to brunch!  I stopped on a lot of strangers' steps and pretended like their house was mine ;) 

Outfit Details:

Hat: PopSugar T-Shirt: J.Crew  Cardigan: Zara Jeans: Joe's Jeans Booties: Madewell

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Necklace: Tiffany & Co Bangle: Banana Republic

I kept it casual with some jeans, ankle booties, a t-shirt, drape cardigan and a wool hat from my September PopSugar must have box.  Everything I'm wearing is older (moving leaves little in the budget for shopping haha) but I've linked the same or similar items above.

How is your fall so far? Have you been out to the D.C. area? If you're here, get in touch with me! We should meet up...I need a tour guide!!! What do you want to know about my move and my new life on the east coast? If you ask, i'll tell :)
