The Best Vintage Hairstyle for Summer



On Saturday, we went to a party for Pj's cousin's graduation. It was a really beautiful and finally sunny day. The kids played in the sand and had a water balloon fight and the grown-ups enjoyed his grandma's much-loved whiskey sour punch, which she froze so it would be all slushy and wonderful.

I was sitting there, sipping my slushy punch but it was still very hot. I grabbed a hand full of ice from the cooler to hold on the back of my neck, when I got the idea to tuck the ice in my hair! I rolled my hair up that day and had the perfect spot for about 4 small ice cubes. As they melted, the water ran down, cooled me off and it was perfect! I'll probably do it like this every time I have yard work to do this summer. Try this version based on Allie's lake-side hair in The Notebook

  2. That is a very cute style! My hair is a bit short for that particular look, but I do love doing twists and rolls - they're so quick and easy, but they always look really pretty. Really digging the outfit too, you look lovely.

  3. What a clever idea! It reminds me of a much less messy version, in a roundabout way (and for a different purpose), of the perfumed wax cones that the ancient Egyptians used to let melt down and over their heads.

    Fabulous dress! I really like the colour palette. It has autumnal notes, but suits summer wonderfully, too.
