The day we planned to do a style shoot was beautiful and sunny and I was soo excited to be wearing shorts for the first time this year! This look is a warm weather staple for me. Baggy tee and denim cut offs... I could live in it!
This was SO much fun! Probably more fun looking back on it than it actually was (to be honest!) If you ever decide to have a magical evening releasing these lanterns to float away into the night sky, I recommend bringing a lighter that works and a few people with you. This was actually a hilarious night. I feel like we could put this post up and say everything went exactly as planned and we had a perfect evening enjoying a few floating lanterns drifting away, but that's not fullllly true.
That being said, it actually was so magical watching the lantern fill up with air and feel it slowly start to drift out of your fingers as it gained more and more momentum. It was the most beautiful evening, we were left with a perfect sunset and it wasn't too cold for an April evening. The best part about doing things with friends is that even when things don't always go as planned, you still have a fun time. They are usually the most memorable times too.
Hope you all have a relaxing long weekend!
Here's a video our little adventure at Crescent Beach! You can buy these lanterns here >
When I post a photo wearing a top knot I always have people comment asking how I do it. So I figured I would do a simple tutorial on how I do my lazy day hair. -Bethany
- Start with a high pony... the higher the better!
- Next, Backcomb your pony. This is going to give it volume to make your hair look extra thick It will also add a little mess, which to me is always a good thing.
- Wrap the pony around the elastic loosely.
- Using a bobby pin, secure the ends by pinning them into the base of the bun.
*try to get your pins going into the elastic to keep your bun sturdy
- Use pins to secure any wily pieces, and thats it!
