I bought this blush pink skirt for $20 on clearance in 2008-2009. I haven't worn it in a couple of years, but was so happy to find it at the blottom of my drawer yesterday. This is how I wore it, with the same exact shirt I wore it with a couple years ago. I'm all about repeating outfits, and with fairly recent shoes, purse and necklace it felt new all over again. How soon will you repeat an outfit? (Points will not be deducted if your answer is the very next day!) ;-)

Top: Banana, $20
Skirt: Anthropologie, $20
Shoes: Chinese Laundry c/o, $69 (same)
Purse: Calvin Klein/Saks Off Fifth, $130 (similar)
Necklace: Spiegel c/o, old
Bracelets: My Stella & Dot 123
Rings: My Stella & Dot 12

Also - I've had tons of questions about my hair lately. so today I'm spilling the beans. I almost always let it air dry and wear it naturally wavy. Living in Florida, it's useless to fight the humidity and the faster the beauty the routine, the better, in my opinion. See a picture of my favorite wavy hair products below. I have been using the first mousse by Tresemme most often. I like the large amount you get for the price - I use 5-6 kiwi size sprays a day (my hair is thin strands, but insanely thick). It makes my waves frizz-free and soft not crunchy, and it works on both fully wet hair right from the shower, and damp hair that's been air drying for a couple hours.

The second mousse by Loreal yields very similar results, you just get less in the bottle. The third bottle is a dry shampoo by Loreal that's the best dry shampoo I've ever used, and the fourth bottle is a white gel-like substance by Garnier. I believe it's intended to be a finishing product and smooth down frizzies after the mousse, but I'm too lazy to use it.

And above? That's a picture of my straightener, a 1" flat iron that was a gift from my friends at Misikko. The brand is Hana, and it does a great job of getting those natural waves to lay flat. I've tried cheaper straighteners, but my waves are stubborn so higher heat is required. What hair products and tools do you recommend?
