Getting a Little Rusty

by Jessica Sturdy on October 18, 2012

I can never get too much of the rust/navy combo! Even though I’m wearing a white skirt after Labor Day (which is A-OKAY!), the dark rust and navy tones make it feel like a fall look.

I read your blog daily, and I love your style, but what I’d really like to know is how you get your hair to do that cute little wave. I can make mine stick straight or super curly, but nothing in between.

Hi Chelsea! I did a tutorial here… http://bowsandsequins.com/2012/06/20/the-wave/

If I wan’t it to be a little less curly, I just run my fingers through the curls and kind of brush them out. Also, when you are curling with your wand, make sure you just wrap the hair around 2-3 times depending on your hair length! Hope this helps! :)

I’m gonna agree with PPF – that rust color is beautiful with your hair/skin tone!

Great way of taking an otherwise summery looking skirt and turning it into a great Fall piece! You look great :)

I tend to associate rust with black and gold, so this navy pairing is unexpected but nice. Will try!

Thanks! Tabitha at Arrojo did my highlights! I just got my roots touched up, like I do every few weeks, but since I went to a new salon for the first time in years, I think it’s a bit blonder than usual.

White after Labor Day is “A-Okay”… especially when it is such a fabulous polka dot skirt!

Cute look!
