What happens when I pretend to be a fashion blogger

Thank you all so much for your concern over my diagnosis yesterday. Today I tried to ease my symptoms by pretending I was at the beach all day while I was teaching. I did that by wearing this dress.
I think I went a little crazy on the editing. My face isn't really that orange/tan.
I am also to lazy to reedit the picture to make me not look so weird.
This is my first maxi dress and I cannot believe it took me so long to jump on this bandwagon. It is the most comfortable piece of clothing I own. Including my ever so constricting sweat pants. I bought it at the Macy's clearance center for $10 a month ago (I am pretty sure it was from last summer- yes, chevron is so 2012), but I love it. It is strapless, so for me to wear it to work I put it over a tank and under a jacket. This black jacket is from Old Navy  forever ago.

I also am loving my hair. I have naturally wavy/frizzy hair and I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to wear it straight for pretty much all 31 years I have been alive. Recently I have been embracing my waves and enhancing them- old lady style.
Yup, hot rollers. It is actually so easy to do. It is quicker for me to use hot rollers than to use a flat iron. I roll them up, then do my make-up, pack my lunch play a few lives on Candy Crush and 20 minutes or so later I take them out and flip my hair around. Boom. My hair is done. I don't even use product on my curls and (probably because of the wave) my hair lasts all day.

I also have been trying to wash my hair less. My hair dresser has been telling me for years to not wash my hair everyday. If I am not working out that day, I don't wash my hair. I am sure that also helps to keep the curl in. I have been using this product pretty regularly to give my hair some volume.
In all honesty, I received this product for free from BzzAgent, but I love it. I have tried other powder/volumizing products before, but I really do like this one the best. They all work, but it doesn't leave my hair with a weird texture like the spray products, and it also is cheaper than the other powder products I have tried. I highly recommend this stuff if you want a little lift in your hair.

What is your favorite summer look? Any fun products to recommend?

How cute are you!! Love that dress for sure! And I have hot rollers that I attempt to use occasionally, but I think my hair is just tooooo long. It makes my arms tired to hold them up for all that rolling. Maybe I should work out my arms more? That's a thought.

Very cute. I've been tempted to try hot rollers for when I want to straighten my hair (sounds weird, I know). But, yes, sometimes you just have to stop fighting what your hair wants to do and just find a way to go with it.
