So, last weekend I was spending the day with John & sometimes I just skip fixing my hair when he is getting the day off so that we can have more time together. (It's a commitment to wash, dry, curl my hair...sooo I don't mind skipping.) I get asked about my curls & lately I've been using a 1" barrel to curl my hair and then I just sleep with my hair in a pony tail but tucked under (like you see in a lot of my IG pix) and I swear by this pillow case!! It's like made to keep your hair smooth. Anyway, if my hair is dirty and I'm not wanting to spend time on it, I wake up and brush through the curls - which is why they look larger/looser/undone. And then I teased the top of my head and moved my part to the side and quickly did a dutch braid and then bobby pinned it back. It is pretty messy in these photos, but I tend to like my braids undone looking. 

Anyway, this outfit may be one of my favorites from all spring / summer! I got this off the shoulder top in last week and I love it - but it is short - so it would look good w/high waisted jean shorts or high waisted denim - but I really loved this skirt that I had just gotten on sale so I paired the two together. :)

You may have seen on Snap already, but last night John and I went to a gas station at like 11:30 and got popcorn and big drinks and rented a movie and stayed up SO late - but it was the most fun I've had in a while. John is working today but its technically just taking some calls so its fun to have him around. Tonight John, Fitz & I are headed to AR this afternoon to see sister & go to her in-laws for a BBQ! I hope you all have a wonderful & safe Holiday weekend! xx
