Less High Maintenance


2/30

Today's hairstyle is called "Liz is still tired and overslept AGAIN but then remembered she's a style blogger and should probably shower/wash her hair". Basically I jumped in the shower, let my hair air dry while I rushed to get ready, fixed my bangs and ran out the door. If you know me at all, you know this is a HUGE accomplishment. My hair is my thing. It's high maintenance and takes work and it can ruin my day if it's having a bad day. So for me to wash and go-ish {remember I said I had to do my bangs} is kinda a big deal.


In order to compensate for my less than coiffed hair, I opted to throw on some gold accessories. Also, I'm wearing pants. I only say this because it was brought to my attention {aka I was scrolling through the last few posts} that I've worn a skirt for like the last 11 days straight. Okay, maybe not the past 11 days, but something like that. So yeah I'm wearing pants and my hair is wet go me.

Pin It!

  3. We all have those days! Good for you for still putting in an effort and then having time to post about it! That's one reason why I love curly hair, if you don't have time washing and going is pretty easy (as long as you keep the windows down in the car to let it air dry faster!).

  13. I like the braid you are wearing - those are super in so no worries about your less that coiffed hair. And it seems to be a skinny yellow belt kind of day. - Katy

  32. I love this! Sometimes the things thrown on at the last minute tend to look the most effortless (probably because they are). I love the volume on top, the belt to nip it in, and the fitted bottom. So chic.
