Before and After at Salon Cielo

Last week I headed to Salon Cielo’s grand opening event by the Mall at Millenia in Orlando, FL! There were sweet treats, fresh DJ beats, and some blogger friends who joined in the fun. My favorite part was getting pampered by Georgie, the salon manager, pictured above. I was super impressed with his chair-side manner and savvy blow-drying skills. I hammed it up a little for the “before and after pictures” but the difference in my hair turned out to be dramatic enough itself! Before my wash and blow dry, my naturally wavy hair was not playing nice with the humidity, despite straightening it that morning. Georgie made all those waves go away and my hair felt so pretty and smooth afterwards. I would be happy having Salon Cielo blow out my hair everyday! (A girl can dream, right?)

It was a fabulous event, and it was great customer service all-around. Salon Cielo has several locations in VA and FL, go check it out and find a salon near you!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Cage Shoes & Dress

I have so many good feels about this dress and shoe combo! It was part of my order for yesterday's post with Kohl's. It wound up not fitting the theme, but was too cute not to share in a separate (not-sponsored) post. The dress is just a tad too big and the shoes are a little more than I usually spend on statement heels, but it's SO cute together. I'm trying to decide if I should keep it and take the money from my personal budget. Would you rock this dress/shoe combo this fall?

Back to School with Kohl's

“Back to school, back to school…” This time of year always conjures up memories of school supply shopping and crisp, new denim! We never had a big budget for back to school shopping, but jeans were always on my wish list, as well as sneakers and some kind of athletic gear - so today I'm sharing a little bit of both.

Whether you're headed to school yourself, or have little ones to drop off (both occasions where I'd wear these outfits), or you just can't wait to do some denim shopping this time of year because it's been your tradition for ages (I'm in this last category), then today's looks are for you. I partnered with Kohl's to shop for two back to school looks from their website and store, and here's what I came up with!

The first outfit I picked is so very 70's - my favorite fashion era! Character tees are all the rage right now, they are a little sassy and tongue-in-cheek, and the ringer style makes them 70's appropriate with the high-waist flared jeans. I am so happy that flares are in style this fall - they make your legs look a mile long and are just so fun to wear. I feel like I'm in the movie Dazed & Confused in this outfit!

Flares are not the only denim kid on the block this school year though. Pretty much anything goes with denim right now, so in the second outfit I wanted to completely switch it up and go with a different kind of jeans - loose fit boyfriend jeans styled with a sporty Nike tee in an athleisure look. (Note: I went 2 sizes up to get this baggy fit.) As a tomboy growing up, I wore nothing but sneakers and sport gear to school, so I feel really comfy in this look! 

Kohl's has an amazing selection of sporty clothes and sneakers to achieve this look on a budget, as well as lots of denim choices. Check out my round up of some more favorites below.

Which type of denim are you most looking forward to wearing this fall? Which outfit is your favorite?
