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.

Why I Love a Sleek Bun

I consider my beauty and hair evolution to be just as important as my style evolution. When I first started blogging in 2010 my outfits were much different than the ones I wear today.

The start of the new year means it’s time to reflect on 2022 and think about hopes for 2023. I have to admit, I am pretty bad about this. While the new year invigorates so many, it tends to overwhelm me. This year I have decided to center on one goal for each area of my life by focusing in on one key word for each category. Simple – and hopefully effective! In the past I have focused on goals that are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound), but decided this year to try a more broad approach with purpose.


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!

Hey Bombers and Bombshells!

 I was thrilled to be invited to Art Week in Miami to experience a new fragrance called Coastal Mornings by Sanctuary. I received an invite and perfume bottle in the mail and was told to show up in Miami ready for a huge announcement! I was beyond juiced, as I know that Art Week is the penultimate time during the year when fashion, artist, and culture collide.  

I had never heard of Coastal Mornings and wasn’t sure what to expect. (The scent was so refreshing—and it reminded me of the sights and sounds of a leisurely beach stroll with its golden citrus and grapefruit top notes as well as its freesia, violet and green base). When we (I along with influencers Amanda of @AWStyled, Janay of High Low Luxe and @ChiziDuru) appeared at SLS Hotel, we learned that Coastal Mornings by Sanctuary
