OOTD: Inner Hippie

Alter ego? 
Sometimes I like to mix up my style from my normal preppy looks and do something a little more edgy or boho. This outfit is one of those days! I got this super cute maroon tulle dress at a boutique in Iowa when I was visiting my friend. It is super fun and playful and can be styled in a lot of different ways. For this look I decided to keep it more edgy. To keep myself warm I layered the dress with an embroidered denim button down. It has a slight tribal pattern which gives the look a little edge. To make it seem not so oversized I tied the sides up into little nots. I love doing this because it keeps the shirt out of your way and makes it a little more girly. For jewelry I layered a short necklace and a very long chain. The chain has jewels that range in colors then the short necklace is a single spike dagger situation. For shoes I simply wore a pair of gold and silver sandals from Target. 

However, my hair is what really makes the look a little more not myself! I decided to try and mix up the normal messy bun that morning. So, I made two pigtails super close to each other on the top of my head. Then I teased both pig tails then wrapped the hair around the elastic band to create two textured buns. I slightly pushed them together to create a kind of combined bun look. At first I didn't know how it would turn out but it actually looks super cute, messy, and playful. Normally I am a very slick sleek bun, mainly because I danced for 14 years (I have to have everything neat!), so this was definitely a change for my hair!
