Navy and White






It was pretty chilly in Missouri today so for church this morning I opted for these comfy linen pants and halter top versus my typical dress outfit. I love this top. It is perfect for summer and I think it would be great for a white x white look (I am wearing an extra small). I also wore a bright statement earring to add some color. The ones I am wearing are old, but I linked some other super cute ones below! 

I leave for Dallas market on Tuesday with June and Beyond Boutique and I couldn't be more excited! It is always so much fun and such a great experience for me. I might not be able to do full blog posts, but I will be posting on instagram as always and be sure to follow me on snapchat (@ briannaknopf) for sneak peeks of what is coming to the store!

How I Style My New hair

I recently chopped my hair off and I LOVE it! One of the main reasons I was hesitant and didn't do it sooner was because I was so nervous I wouldn't be able to style it as easy and that I couldn't go with out styling it! Well, I was wrong because I think it is easier to style and because it's not super short I could let it air dry and it would look fine. I went with a blunt cut and I love the result. I don't what it is about it, but I almost feel like I have thicker hair! Anyway... here's how I have been styling my hair for everyday! Enjoy and all the products and styling tools are linked below! I couldn't link my exact straightener, but you can find it here.
I start out with shampooing and conditioning my hair with the Organix products above. After I shower and towel dry my hair I put about a dime sized amount of moroccanoil on my ends and put the remainder through the rest of my hair. Then, I take about a dime size of 'Plump For Joy' and 'Beach Babe' and scrunch it into my hair starting from the ends and working towards the roots. I think the texturizing cream is the most important product because my hair has absolutely no texture. This cream adds texture without making your hair crunchy or sticky. After putting all the product in, I brush through my hair and blow dry with a round brush! 
After I applied products and before I blow dried:)

To add the wave I use a straightener. Basically I take small pieces and twist my wrist to get the curl. To make it so its less of a curl and more of a natural wave, don't clamp down very hard and don't really curl the end (or at least all the ends)

After doing that to my whole head I add some more texture cream by scrunching it through my hair. Then, I spray all over with hair spray and I'm done!


Finished product!

This was record blog shooting time considering I think I took all these in less than a minute since it started raining! I am loving this hot pink color this summer especially on dresses and rompers! This dress is from June and Beyond Boutique (go figure;)) but I linked the exact same one below!

Pom Pom Shorts + New Hair







I chopped off my hair today and I absolutely LOVE it! I had her do a 'blunt cut' so the ends are very straight and I love how it turned out! Other than that she just trimmed up the rest and ta da... new summer hair! I have been wanting to cut my hair for a while now, but everyone kept telling my I would regret it and I kept chickening out. I am so glad I finally went through with it and I can't wait to style it myself (and possibly do blog post about it!). These adorable little pom pom shorts are from June and Beyond Boutique, but I also linked a few similar pairs below as well everything else I am wearing! My Kendra Scott necklace is from Rocksbox, use code 'briannaxoxo1' for a free month!

Floral Kimono






During the summer I am all about easy.  Many of my summer outfits have been that way so far and this one is the same. This romper from J. Crew Factory is a soft jersey fabric and with this chiffon kimono over it you are able to layer without getting hot. This kimono is old, but I linked similar ones below as well as my exact shoes, romper, and accessories! I wore these shoes for six hours today at work and my feet were just starting to hurt after I left (which I think is pretty good for how tall they are!)  On a side note... I am trying something different with my hair tomorrow and I am SO excited! I love doing new things with my hair. Stay tuned to see how it turns out;)

Cutout




I love the look of lace bralettes peeking out of the back of tops lately. I bought this one from June & Beyond Boutique, you can always order from their instagram @juneandbeyondboutique, or I linked one below! It's a perfect trend for summer. I also linked this adorable (with a great price tag too!) tee below along with everything I am wearing! My shoes were on sale, but now they are limited with sizes so I linked a full price pair as well. I usually take my photos with my iPhone 6; however, today I decided to use a real camera (don't really know why I didn't do this sooner). I love the results! Much clearer and professional looking and I hardly edited them at all (nothing fancy just an app I have called Afterlight). To get this look check out the links below! As always... thanks for reading!

May Wishlist

This summer I really want to try and buy a lot of basic items that I can style many different ways and add fun accessories to. I just ordered these Tory Burch Miller sandals (on sale... use the link below!) and I can not wait to get them in! They are going to match pretty much everything in my closet, but will for sure add to any outfit with the fun snake print. I have wanted these sandals seriously forever so I went ahead and splurged on this item. I think I am just going to tell myself it is a "good job making it through your first year of college" gift to myself! ;) I just got this J. Crew Factory romper (black one I linked below) and it is the softest thing, seriously feels like pjs. I think I will be able to dress this up or down. This Forever 21 tank is adorable. I love halter neckline lately. I'm also loving this and this from there! I got the Loren Hope bracelet in my most recent Rocksbox and I love it! It looks so good layered or by itself! To try a month of Rocksbox completely free (and no commitments!) use code 'briannaxoxo1.' You can shop directly from the photos below, just click the photo and it will take you directly to the item!
What are you crushing on this month? Thanks for reading!

Off the Shoulder







I was so tired when I got home from work today and I wasn't planning on doing a post today, but once I saw this gorgeous BB Dakota (one of my new fave brands) blouse in my closet I just had to take some pics before it rains for the next four days straight. This top is just so fun and will be perfect for dinner dates and nights out this summer. This top is from June and Beyond Boutique, but I linked below as well. I wore it with white denim shorts (last year from J. Crew) and Forever 21 wedges (just ordered them in black and this pair!) and then my Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip which I am sure you guys are tired of seeing! ;) My jewelry is all Kendra Scott... I may have an addiction, but I love it all so much!! Thanks again for reading!

Mixing Prints






I recently scored this Rebecca Minkoff mini mac for a super good price... see it here! One thing I really love about this bag and my other five zip is that they can be worn crossbody, shoulder, or as a clutch! I wear mine like a shoulder bag a lot and I think it looks more dressy. This tank is from June & Beyond Boutique (is it obvious I recently went on a little shopping spree there?;)). I tried to link some other cute tanks I am loving, but you can always order these through their insta (@juneandbeyondboutique). As always thank you so much for reading!

Ps. Considering chopping my hair about collar bone length... thoughts?!

Simple Summer Look





I am so happy to be blogging again! I had not posted on instagram in over a week because of finals! I finished up classes yesterday and I couldn't be happier to have summer. I have been loving white lately and this eyelet top is especially summery. This top is from a local boutique (you shop from their instagram @juneandbeyondboutique) but I linked a similar one! These shorts are also from the same boutique and are seriously amazing! I had been wanting a pair of distressed boyfriend shorts forever. These fit great and are only $32! I love my Rebecca Minkoff Five Zip so much you guys are probably tired of seeing it in pictures! Ha! But I just recently scored a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac super on sale so I am sure that will be in an outfit post in the near future. Thanks for reading & and check back for more posts this summer!
