The most requested blog post I’ve ever gotten is here! For the last 2 days I’ve gotten so many questions about my outfit, hair and makeup from last weekend’s formal! I thought I’d write a blog post with links to everything to make it easy for y’all to shop. The dance was held at an old auto museum – so many cool cars & a great venue. The dance floor was wild as usual and it was so fun to have a sense of normalcy again.
I found this beauty at Bloomingdales on sale! Most girls from my school opt for dresses that can be worn again, and we tend to stay away from poofy, bedazzled & super formal dresses. Maybe it’s the casual Californian in us, but that’s just how we do it! For formals, we also wear long dresses.
sadly my dress is not available online yet so I can’t link it. It was a new arrival at my local store, and I’m hoping it will be available online soon so I can share with y’all! I’ve linked some similar dresses below to get the similar look:
not sure if this is popular around the country or just a CA thing, but us girls wear heels to dinner and pictures, then put on sneakers for the dance. It gets wild on the dance floor and honestly, nobody needs a rolled ankle!
jewelry, hair & makeup:
I wore my simple, everyday jewelry to add a little bit of sparkle, and borrowed the prettiest bracelet & ring from my aunt! I did my everyday makeup routine with a little more coverage, and more highlighter, more mascara & a darker lip shade than usual. I use mostly all Glossier products but also use Supergoop, Dior & a few drugstore products! I also curled my hair in a new way, and I’m obsessed with how it turned out! I’ve gotten at least 15 DM’s from y’all asking about my hair – the wand I use is UNDER $40 & linked below:
