You guys, I figured out how to do a sock bun. It is NOT as easy as they make it look. Seriously. It was hard. But I got it now. I’m not 100% sold on how it looks on me. I do love the comfort of it and the fact that I don’t have to think about my hair the rest of the day, but I’m not sure on how I look with a sock bun. Have you tried a sock bun yet?
Moving on to the outfit. This outfit cost me a total of approximately $46, and most of it is stuff I’ve had in my closet forever. Except for the necklace. Which I love. Obviously. Because I wear it all the time.
SO, when Marion at Marionberry Style announced that her Trend of the Month challenge for this month was ‘statement necklaces,’ I did a fist pump. For real.
I feel like with the combination of the sock bun and the bubble necklace I am the ultimate in stereotypical blogger. Or I am just really trendy.
I prefer trendy.
