if the interwebs were my closet!

Untitled #2 by jaime-leah-smialek featuring a bangle bracelet

So over the weekend I went on a little adventure… in the midst of the adventure I found my self in a dance club with a rugby team. Yes. I know. Why there? We are not sure but there in all of the chaos I found the most wonderful pair of leggings I have ever seen.

After wiggling my way into the VIP section I couldn’t help but compliment the legs wearing them over and over and over again. Then I finally cracked, ” I am sorry, BUT WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE?” Then the sweet affordable words dripped off of her lips… “American Apparel”.

The next morning(afternoon) while pushing around some Awful Waffle hash browns, I remembered them. Like a dream… like a vision. My heart. I quickly stopped the conversation, whipped out my phone and ordered the patriotic pants of love for myself!

I have similar FRYE booties with the blanket inlay and honestly my little heart might BUST when the two collide. As for the rest of this ensemble… a girl can dream, can’t she?

So there it is, in all its inappropriate for the weather glory,

So my messy bun is usually much messier and K’s sock bun has seen days of ballerina elegance but for this segment of  TOP BUN TUESDAY its a get it up there kinda day.

Katelynd is a big fan or the sock bun…. it gives you a fuller bun and can quick and simple. You  tube has some great tutorials, here is one I like.

Katelynd is wearing >>> Shoes from Anthropologie, tights found, shorts thrifted, vest from Rugged Warehouse, bracelets from F21 and her  grandmother Meme .

Lipstick is Revlon.

I usually go for more of a top knot where I back comb my hair and then twist into a knot on top of my head. Today I decided to go for a more of a messy bun! You will see I just kind of throw it up there, tie it off with a hair tie and then pull out the sides to give my head a little extra volume!

I am wearing >>> Shoes from Steve Madden, skirt by Solitaire ( I cut the bottom layer short myself), button up from Old Navy, necklace was a college graduation gift from my aunt, one bracelet is from F21 and the other is vintage.

If you sported a top bun today we would love to see it! Post it on Instagram or Twitter and be sure to use the hash tag #topbuntuesday #sheworeitanyways
