Lorna Jane Activewear

Lorna Jane Activewear is the best active clothing I have ever worn!

When I received these items I was astounded at the quality of each piece, immediately threw on the Lilly pants and wore them the rest of the day they were so comfortable. The material of each item is super soft, yet thick for extra coverage, with the perfect amount of stretch.

What I love the most though is that the tops are all extra long so you never have to worry about your midriff peeking out or the bottom riding up. I especially love the detailing on the back of the Marilla Excel Tank and love throwing Catalina Hooded top over my tanks after a workout.

Every night when we take Gucci on his evening walk I reach for something from this collection. I especially love the Liberty hoodie now that the weather has cooled off significantly.

Boho Braid

Boho braid is a chic way to wear your hair especially during the Summer. French braids are some of my very favorite hairstyles to wear and finding new variations is especially cool. Why not try out the always superb traditional french braid and easily toss in two extra braids to create a new personalized style.

Today I have teamed up with Latest-Hairstyles.com to show you this fun new tutorial! Check out the video below and visit Latest-Hairstyles.com for more lovely ‘do’s to wear out and about!

Half Up Side French Braid

Half Up Side French Braid is a french braid that trails down the left side of the head, into a lace braid then regular braid, and worn as a half up style with most of the hair left down.

I recently wore a similar style in this instagram picture but when I sat down to film the tutorial, I ended up changing it a little bit. For this version, I pulled in hair on the back side the entire way down the head, keeping the pieces slightly hidden underneath the hair on top. It gives it a softer, more romantic feel.

I really love this style but can definitely see myself wearing both versions all the time.

Now I have to mention those roots! Holy…talk about ombre! I haven’t gotten my roots done in for-ev-ver!

If you watched my recent hair care video then you know I wait 3 months to highlight my hair but I am seriously contemplating letting it grow out into a full on ombre… or is it sombre now?

The Half Up Side French Braid:

  1. Starting with a side part, take a section of hair on the heavy side of the part.
  2. Divide this section into three smaller sections.
  3. Cross the back piece over the middle then cross the front piece over the middle.
  4. Cross the back piece over the middle and bring in a small section of hair below where the braid started.
  5. Cross the front piece over the middle and bring in another small section, right below the start of the braid.
  6. Repeat steps four and five until the braid reaches the top of the left ear.
  7. Once the braid reaches the ear, only bring in hair on the back side of the head, that trail straight down the back of the head.
  8. When all the hair is brought in, and the braid is at the nape of the neck, continue braiding the hair down into a regular style braid.
  9. Tie off the end with a clear elastic.
  10. Gently loosen the braid by pulling on the edges of the hair. This gives the braid a softer look.
  11. Finish by curling the hair with a 1″ curling iron and spritzing down any flyaways with hairspray.

Brigitte Bardot Mermaid Braid

Brigitte Bardot Mermaid Braid is a combination of the Brigitte Bardot Half Updo and the Half Up Mermaid Braid.

I love both those hairstyles so much and thought it would be such a neat idea to combine them together. Mermaid braids are so huge right now and totally blew me away the first time I saw one. I have definitely gone a little crazy throwing them into as many hairstyles as I possibly can.

If you love them as much as I do then you should try out this one because it is just as fun to wear, especially with a pretty red bow tied at the bottom!

Keep reading for the steps!

Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold tee from Style Lately is my new summer staple. I always fall head over heels for tee shirts because they are so incredibly comfortable and easy to pair with everything.

I have literally been on the hunt for a floral skirt. When I picked up this one, I was so excited to find that it was long enough with the perfect amount of stretch. When I received this Gold Heart tee from StyleLately I knew it would be the perfect top with the skirt.
