My Outfit + Go-To Hair

Dress: Vintage, Sweater: BCBG, Pumps: Jessica Simpson, Sunglasses: Forever 21, Earrings: White’s Jewelry

Lately I have been totally into the high bun. It has always intimidated me a bit because I don’t like to rat my hair. But once I figured out how to do it, I can’t stop! It’s so easy and it can prolong a hair wash for 2-3 days! It also turns any outfit from humdrum to posh. The best tutorial I’ve found is from Beth Jones (here). Do you like these outfit posts or are they annoying?
