I got the February J.Crew Catalog this week and wept. 
It was so beautiful. The clothes, the models, the photography. All breath-taking. 

Anyways, the predominant hairstyle was a tussled French Twist. 
This is my first attempt, without any sort of instruction and it turned out pretty cute, but I think I can do better once I receive some instruction...

p.s. It snowed like crazy. Just when I thought Spring had sprung...I would have been mad, if the scene from my bedroom window wasn't so gosh-darn-gorgeous!

Happy Sabbath!
I promise I'll respond to comments after the boys have cleared out of my basement! :)

Ohhhh my goodness. Definitely my favorite of your 30 in 30 outfits. Is your shirt two white shirts layered? I REALLY need to get ahold of that J. Crew catalog.

Love this shirt. And the hair.
I've decided your a genius about hair.

as a finn i have to be dissapointed with the language choice used on the title numbers. but as a lazy swedish student i feel proud that i still remembered them...

Erica said...

Oh my goodness, that's the view from your bedroom window? Incredible! And so is your hair! You could totally be a J.Crew model.

I like your post titles for the last two posts, haha!

The snow is crazy. You think it will let off, melt away - and then it starts snowing again. I am afraid we have entered a new ice age. (I kind of hate that snow is so beautiful. It makes it so hard to hate it.)

Have a great Monday!

Irene said...

love your hair, always will :)

Firstly. I am a total sucker for ALL things J.Crew. And secondly your tights + french twist are absolutely adorable! Great outfit. xx

Kaye said...

This is so lovely and sophisticated! The tights add a sassy touch (:

You look seriously gorgeous! :D

Its funny that you live in a mansion right now.. but also funny that that mansion doesn't match your style at all. You wearing those cool floral tights next to a probably very nice rug that you would (im guessing) otherwise not have in your home. Just makes me giggle.

mj said...

you look amazing. i love the french twist.

Holly said...

Gorgeous. Very pretty decolletage

Pearl Girls said...

This is an adorable outfit, and I can't believe how good that French Twist looks on your first try!

Jamie said...

Just one question...Where is your shirt from? I really love it! Ps. I love your blog, I'm an avid reader! I found you through your sis in law Liz, we're besties in SD! All of your 30 outfits have been awesome, I want to hire you to shop for me!
