Desk Search Chronicles and J.Crew Casual Gingham and Oxford Bows

This weekend was absolutely a mini "vacation" in New Orleans for me before my conference began on Monday.

Bow Dress and Braided Hair

It snowed heavily yesterday morning and temperatures significantly dropped. As I was getting ready to go out, I realized that my wet hair needed to be put up somehow, so I decided to throw in some braids. I started with a small waterfall braid on my right side, then braided the "falling" hair into a … Continue reading Bow Dress and Braided Hair
