A few years ago I spent a summer weekend in Miami with some of my best girlfriends.  I was in awe of all the beautiful people in the city, the different languages being spoken all around me and the colorful everything.

This outfit feels so Miami to me – with another fabulous scarf top!  My first scarf top post was here, and I’ve really fallen in love with the concept and this colorful Olio Collection scarf.  It feels so easy and unique – which I’m finding is very “California.”  I think that one of the biggest differences between my Southern style and California-girl style is that the stylish girls here have a very easy look.  Air-dried hair, natural makeup and an effortlessly put together look that is both unique and laid back.

A big bonus that this outfit is cool since we have no central air conditioning in the den/living area of our apartment.  Most days it’s not a problem…but somedays it feels like summertime Miami in the den…and I’m not kidding.   Having been nicknamed the “ice queen” in college thanks to my love of air conditioning and below 70 degree temperatures, I might complain about the lack of AC a few times…daily.  Luckily I have lots of reasons to get outside and enjoy the breeze, and I find ways to do this often!

I love some big hair but my stick-straight locks rarely hold much volume – so the California style of long, no fuss strands are definitely working to my advantage!  What do y’all think?  Is the long, straight hair too plain on me?

  1. Oh honey, I was worried that ya’ll went the no central ac route with the heat wave few weeks back. My aunt used to live in that area and she was miserable. Girl you could shave your head and still look fabulous. I’m a bit biased when it comes to rocking long flat hair, although the alternative for me is long frizzy hair.

    1. I feel like everyone just has a window unit and keeps their doors open! I think we’ll be fine the majority of the year but right now…IT’S HOT. Sounds like we can be straight hair sisters!! XO –

    2. Seriously? There’s no central ac apartments in that area? Grew up with a window unit but spoiled to central now. Can’t wrap my head around no ac, course I’ve never been anywhere to experience “dry heat”.

      Least your hair is naturally straight, mine’s technically wavy and willful at that. If I brush it out then it’s frizzy and if I try to embrace the wavy it’s frizzy. So I just brush it out and throw it up in a topknot cause it’s too hot to blow it out.

  2. I was confused by your stick straight hair in the beginning – could not understand why it was not curly like your older sisters hair. But when you wanted that “body wave” in Jr. High I told you most girls would kill for your shiny and silky hair. Unfortunately, you did not listen, got the body wave and then painfully waited for it to grow out. I say embrace your stick straight shiny and silky hair and let the good times roll!


  3. As a fellow Southerner, we all love our big hair (the bigger the hair, the closer to God) but your hair is very chic.

    1. I wish I could mine big!! It just wants to stay flat. It’s TRAGIC. HA! XO –

  4. I love the long straight hair on you, it looks gorg! I hate straightening my hair so I usually curl it, but I always air dry it and since it’s 100% humid all the time here in the South as you know, it’s hard to wear the natural look without getting a tad frizzy 🙂 Looking gorgeous as always girl, love those colors!

    1. Sounds like you have some body in your hair – lucky you!! Thank you for your sweet comment!

  5. I love these colors! I like your hair like that. I’ve been wearing mine straight ever since Rachel Zoe sort of brought back that air dry easy look. I have a lot of hair, but it is super fine and my Mom had to pay a friend of mine who had been Miss SC several years back to come do my hair for pageants. It will not hold volume for anything.

    1. I mean – if Rachel Zoe says straight hair is chic, it’s chic, right? I’m the same way – I don’t want to destroy my hair teasing it all the time, so I’m just embracing the straight. Thank you for the encouragement!! XO –
