Today's outfit really began with me wanting to pair this purply-pink dress with this light pink purse. I always love how two shades of the same or similar color look together. Then I threw on some neutral pieces to finish off the outfit (like the white blazer and the gray pumps). As soon as I had the blazer on, I knew I wanted to tie my hair up... For some reason, I prefer not having my messy hair distract from the crisp white collar of this blazer.

So, I went with this super high ballerina bun! Once I was finished with my hairdo, I realized that I looked a lot like a ballerina today. I mean, I am wearing a high bun in my hair (enough said), plus two shades of pink, plus a floral belt, plus a sparkly ring... doesn't get much girlier and ballerina-ish than that right?... ok, I guess a tutu would help... but that's not really professional ;)

Do you ever wear your hair tied up in a high bun? Why or why not?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this dress:

  1. I love your hair in a bun, it's super cute! I don't normally do anything with my hair because 1. I'm lazy and 2. I'm uncreative and don't know what else to do with it. :)

    I love the crisp white blazer with that bright dress! You look fantastic!

  3. This is one of my favorite ways to wear my hair! I always feel so elegant, esp. with tiny little earrings like you are wearing. Your right, keeping your hair off the collar keeps it more elegant. Have a good day!
