Skorts are back. If you grew up in the 90′s like I did, you may remember these peculiar skirt-shorts combos. (I rocked said trend with stacked neon socks and snap bracelets because I was just that cool.) The modern version of skorts are more structural, like this white number from Zara. Moonlights as a skirt from the front, but a side/back view reveals it for the simple pair of shorts it actually is.
I wore my skorts with a floaty lime tank, bright white Zara sandals, and a layered chain statement necklace from Bauble Bar. All those cool colors needed some warmth to balance ‘em out, so I slipped on a coral cheek and my favorite lip stain/gloss hybrid: YSL Glossy Stain in 08 Orange de Chine.
A few of you have noticed I’ve been wearing my hair straight more often (tame the lion waves!), which is rare for me in the spring and summer when the humidity arrives here in Kansas City. Sweating under a hair dryer (typically a 40-minute commitment for this girl and her mane) when it’s already muggy outside is not my idea of a good time.
But for the past few weeks I’ve been using the HanaAir Professional blow dryer (courtesy of Misikko*), which has cut my dry time down considerably– drying my hair from just-toweled used to take the better part of an hour, and I can now do it about 15 minutes with the HanaAir.
The dryer packs a punch– 2300 watts. A ceramic heating element (as opposed to metal or plastic) heats the hair more evenly, which minimizes damage. This is huge improvement over dryers I’ve used in the past– now after a blowout, my hair doesn’t have that slightly frazzled, I’m-in-shock look.
Toying around with the idea of a beauty post… I’ve had a few emails about my beauty routine/what products I use (mostly black magic and trick mirrors, ha), so drop me a comment or an email if this is something you’re interested in seeing on the blog.
