It’s no secret that a sleek bun is my favorite hairstyle. In fact, it’s the opposite of a secret! It’s very rare to see me wearing my hair any other way, as I’ve now been embracing sleek buns for almost five years. Over these years, I’ve fine-tuned and perfected this hairstyle. Although many of you have requested to see my hair down more often, I rarely stray from a sleek bun because it’s the style that works for me. Today I’m excited to share more about why I love this hairstyle, a sleek hair bun tutorial, tips for perfecting this style, and outfit inspiration to wear with a sleek bun.

Experiment. In 2023 I want to focus on trying

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing long break and got to spend time with those you love. Let’s kick off the new year talking about a few winter transitional pieces that are closet classics. Fashion this time of year is so odd, while holiday plaid and NYE sparkle and shine have died down, true spring dressing feels so far away. I always use this month to take a long hard look at my closet and do some serious cleaning. In that process I also see what basics might need updating. Below are some of the everyday styles that I am excited about in the new year.

P.S. if you are heading somewhere warm and looking for some bright, colorful inspiration, head here as I have just updated my resort shop section with new picks!
