Southern Belle

Styled Travels |

I am loving my time at Engage! in Ashville, NC! But summer in the South is h-o-t! If you plan on heading South, I suggest packing a few essentials that have come in handy during my trip.

Flirty patterned dresses and cute wedges will keep you cool during the steamy days!

Don’t forget to pack a pair of cowboy boots for when you head out line dancing! A skinny belt and delicate jewelry add a nice touch of femininity to the bold summer colors.

Western Wear

Discover, Styled Travels |

When you are in search of a classic country western getaway, look no further than The Ranch at Rock Creek! I just got back from the most gorgeous weekend, tucked away in the mountains of Montana.

Although Summer is upon us, Montana’s elevation leads to some colder climates. I made sure to bring along a few of my favorite pieces to keep me warm and western! (Photo via Pinterest)

Although my style leans toward casual comfort, there are certainly some beautiful western inspired pieces that can be fantastic additions to your honeymoon packing list! Dine in style with your love in either one of these great outfits! {Photo via Pinterest}

If you’re ready to kick up your heels and honeymoon in the countryside, email me!

Bon Voyage!

Fish Tail Braid

Styled Travels |

Many of you asked me how I did my hair that was featured in my last post. Wedding Chicks has the best tutorial from Erica at 1011 Makeup. This braid is so versatile for day, night and of course on your honeymoon! Braid on ladies!

Step one:
Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic band. You can either cut the band for a loose braid or you can wrap the band with hair to hide it upon completion.

Step two
Divide the hair in the pony tail into two equal parts. If you would like to wrap the band with hair when finished, leave a small piece aside, separate from the two equal parts, and do not include this piece as you braid.

Step three:
Take a small piece from the outside of side one and pass the piece to side two (you can decide which side will be one and two). Next, take a small piece from the outside of side two and pass it to side one. Continue this process.  Once you pass each piece over you can forget about them, just let them gather into their new sides.

To keep the braid tight, every so often you can take side one and side two and pull them away from each other. This will help tighten the pieces you have already placed and braided.

Step four:
Once you have finished the braid (takes a lot longer than a normal three strand braid), you can secure the ends with an elastic band.  At this point you can either carefully cut the elastic at the top of the braid, or you can take the piece you set aside and wrap the band, securing the end with a bobby pin.

For a looser braid, upon completion, you can gently pull the braid apart, helping to separate the pieces a bit, loosening the braid.

For a sleeker braid, make sure to brush through your hair first, and try to keep the braid as tight as possible.

For a “messy/ boho” braid, you can add texture prior to starting the braid by curling your hair or teasing your hair a bit, and don’t worry about keeping the braid too tight as you work. This will help the braid to appear a bit thicker and looser. Spray with a light finishing spray.
