I am so so happy to be back home with my dog and husband! I felt so bad leaving my dog because David works all day so I hate knowing he is just at home alone while I am gone – usually we are cuddling and playing all day! So my first day back I felt way too bad leaving him for a shoot and brought him along :) would have brought David too if he wasn’t working!

Thigh high boots and booties have been my go-to so when I went to go grab some knee highs I realized I didn’t have any besides some old ones that are literally years old and super worn out so I got these Steve Madden ones, they looked like the Isabel Marant knee high boots only with a MUCH better price tag and I absolutely love them.

I seem to not wear ponies that much unless my hair is dirty because they just are so blah to me, so this was a fun way to spice up my pony and make it fun. This is day seven for me in using the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System as part of my hair diary during NYFW, my hair was manageable for yesterdays style but is due for a wash now and it was perfect timing for a pony.

P.S. dont forget to check out yesterday’s post, I was super late in posting it so in case you missed it, its down below!

Barefoot Blonde

Barefoot Blonde1. Pull hair into a high pony tail. Spritz the crown with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray and then brush out all the bumps making the pony as sleek as possible.

2. After securing the ponytail with a ponytail holder, take a small section from the bottom of the pony and wrap around the rubber band and secure with a bobby pin.

3. Take a small, clear rubber band and secure the ponytail about two inches from the base and pull hair to create a nice lift in that section.

4. Mist pony with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Illuminating Shine Spray for added shine throughout the whole hair.

XOXO

    I love this look! It’s such wearable casual chic. The boots are fantastic! And with the better price tag you feel bad running then to the ground. Beautiful hair and bag!

    Does it drive you nuts though when “over the knee” or “thigh high” boots hit just below your kneecap?? I’m 5’11″ and I was looking for a good and cheaper alternative to the SW 5050 boot and everything hit below my kneecap. Those boots def look great on you I’m just frustrated by the shaft heights :(

    Love love this look and your cute pup! Quick question – you have mentioned you like to wear clip in extensions…are you wearing them here and if so, how do you style a high pony without the clips showing?

    • amber February 18, 2014 at 3:39 am Permalink

      Thanks so much girl!!! And so for my extensions I part my hair basically across the crown and then clip them upside down! I usually only clip 2 rows! xx

  29. Amanda February 23, 2014 at 9:53 am Permalink

    Love this! One question – do you like the quality of items you order from sheinside? It just seems too cheap to be true…

    Thanks!!!

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 4:55 am Permalink

      Thanks! I totally thought that too and was not expecting much but I have honestly loved everything I have ordered from there! I have some friends who weren’t please so I guess it is a gamble.. it is no better than Forever 21 quality but that is to be expected with those prices in my opinion! xo

  30. Michelle March 3, 2014 at 4:15 pm Permalink

    This look is Perfection! Quick ? How is the quality of the coat? I have never ordered from sheinside. Btw, you wear pregnant so well.

    • amber March 4, 2014 at 6:09 pm Permalink

      Thanks Michelle! The quality of the coat is equal to Forever 21 in my opinion! Sometimes you find a great piece from F21 and sometimes it falls apart or gets a hole or whatever within a few weeks. Just hit or miss in my opinion but I have had only great experiences personally! I know its not that way for everyone though! xx

  31. You will also need to stay away from too much exfoliation after tanning, so you
    don’t rub off the tanned skin. You probably find yourself gaining
    knowledge and coming to a place where everything is working well for you at the given moment because of your newfound awareness,
    but then it all falls apart again at the next moment. Getting your skin to just
    the right tone can be a challenge.

    items in their own particular view are clearly the actual ones
    which they will. bad preparation before or after your tan,
    or your skin acting up. Actually, once you get used to working with these tools, you’ll probably wonder how you ever
    lived without them.

    However, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you should preserve the originality
    of your kitchen and only apply essential components from the new layout that you have picked, this kind of as only including
    stools but trying to keep other things, or maybe only rearranging the placement of the
    components of the existing island. The Masterbuilt designers added a drain clip to the fry basket which permits you to hang the basket on the side of the
    fryer as the turkey drains and cools. Investment in flooring can be really useful as it would enhance the lifespan of your floor.
