Splat-Hair ChalkΒ 

I’ve been contemplating the idea of dying my hair lavender for a little while. I’ve always been a fan of pastel hair color for spring! I wasn’t quite sure I was ready to dive right into it so I decided I would try out this awesome hair chalk for the day to see if I liked it. It was super easy to use. My mom and I tried hair chalk before on my sister and it was super fun! It’s basically like makeup for your hair that comes out in the shower when you shampoo it. It comes in a little compact like an eyeshadow and you just simply slide it through  your hair directly from the compact using your thumb to secure the hair. This specific one I got is by Splat and it was the “Lavender Skies”shade. Here’s a link to it if your interested! http://www.ulta.com/hair-chalk?productId=xlsImpprod4850009  There’s  some other fun colors to choose from as well πŸ™‚ My hair is platinum blonde so this color showed up really well. If you try this out and have long hair, I don’t recommend wearing anything white or light colored just in case any color transfers onto your clothes. I recommend styling the hair first and then applying it directly on dry hair. I have used other chalks that you can apply to wet or damp hair for more pigment but this one was great dry. And yes, it really does wash right out even on platinum blondes! I was warned that there may still be traces of color in my hair even after shampooing but I took a shower and washed and conditioned my hair and now it’s back to platinum blonde. At least for now πŸ˜‰

Botanical Inspirations

I’m loving all things botanical this Spring and Summer! My husband and I went plant shopping yesterday for our garden and are getting so excited about seeing it all come together. My husband also just built a flower box for our front porch window that is currently full of soil and ready for planting. I love Springtime! I put together this outfit with some of my favorite thrifted pieces from my closet that are perfect for Spring.  I found this beige floral button up for $2 at a local thrift shop last year. It’s super soft and cozy! I think it would be cute to style it tied up in the front with some vintage Levis too πŸ‘πŸΌ These tan colored mules were such a score as well. They are Clarke’s and I found them for $3.  They’ve been my go-to shoes lately. I added some gold jewelry, my grandmothers bandana scarf, and green hat for accessories. These black culottes will definitely be getting a lot of use this year. I love how they look styled with band tees too! I’m really into cropped pants, jeans, and trousers this year. I’ve been having fun cropping some current pants I own to give my wardrobe a little makeover. It’s always fun to change things up a bit and be creative with what’s already in your closet. Happy Spring everyone!
