It's 40 degrees with snow on the ground where I live, but that didn't stop me from wanting "beachy waves" today.
I subscribe to Kate Bryan's Small Things Blog, watched her tutorial for loose "beachy" waves this morning, and thought "Why can't I try that?
So I did, and I think it came out OK! Not as awesome as Kate's of course, but her hair is just amazing.
That's one thing I've started doing just in the past couple of years--watching YouTube tutorials on everything from hairstyles to make-up to scarf-tying. If I'm to be the best "woman of a certain age" I can be, then I need to stay on top of things.
There's no way I can look just like the young girls, nor would I even want to try. But if there are some tips and tricks I can pick up, and some new looks I can adapt to my style, why not?
I'm wearing an Ann Taylor Loft Outlet black V-neck here, but I thought I'd liven it up with a necklace I usually wear in the summertime.
Here's one side-view of the beachy hair. No, it doesn't look as perfect as Kate's, but hey--if I was really on a beach it would look much worse than that! :)
And just to bring us back down to earth, this is what it actually looked like outside my house when I left for work this morning. I have to say I love my red coat that I got at Macy's a couple of years ago. It's stadium-length, warm and cozy, and brightens up even the dreariest winter days. The scarf I got last year at Wal-Mart for 5 dollars...love it too!
