Fall Fashion & a Hair Tutorial!

It is most definitely beginning to look a lot like fall in France!  If you are new here and wondering why I live in France, check out my c’est moi page.  It’ll get ya up to speed real quick!
The weather here has been fantastic.  It has been cool, but not too cold, a little rain but not too much.  No snow yet, just perfect.  Thank you fall in France, for being just what you’re supposed to be!

Today was a nothing day.  We sat around the house, played games, ate {because that is what my boys do. Like} and relaxed.  I enjoyed it.  But even on days like these I try to get out of my jammies and create a cute outfit.  Actually it is sometimes easier on days like these, with no rush to be anywhere.

I’ll start from the top. Headband ~ I think Charlotte Russe… Scarf ~ gift; Shirt ~ gift; Bracelets ~ Target; Shorts ~ H&M; tights ~ who knows; Leg warmers ~ made by me!; Boots ~ Carlos Santana
I am l.o.v.e. lovin’ the boots socks I made today in like 5 minutes.  I have wanted some for a while, but then these were free and took no time at all.  Done and done.

I also did a little fall style hair do.  I liked it because it is classy and simple, nice enough for a night out or a day with the kids.  Super easy too.

And because I am super awesome like that, I made a quick little video.  It shows you can do this style in less than 10 minutes.  Um… Yes, please!!

Thanks for watching!! I hope it was helpful!

If you are stopping by from Casey, Illy, Danielle, or Jess’s place then hello!! Nice to meet you!  I love meeting new people, so make sure you say hi!  You can peruse some hair tutorials, or some of my outfits.  You can also read about my life here in France!  Thanks for stopping by!

    You and your family are so adorable! France, huh?! Okay, crazy story – I, too, am living in Europe (not because my hubby is a pro basketball player), Germany to be exact! And… super weird/crazy thing: My husband is also a giant. I don't think our story is quite as exciting as yours, but there are some crazy coincidences!
    All that aside, found your blog on the Followers Fest, love it, and am now following!

    CUTE fall outfit! I need step it up this fall. I've just been inside wearing cozy clothes, but nothing near that cute!

    I think this might be my favorite fall outfit yet! We had about 5 fall days here so far…and I definitely wore tights under shorts on one of those days. Love this look!!

    Oh man I am so jealous! It's a little known fact that I may have been a teeny tiny bit obsessed with France when I was in high school.

    Love the outfit and love the hair tutorial. I am always looking for cute updos since I wear my hair up 99% of the time. I'm a new follower!

    I love the whole outfit, I have been sporting the shorts and tights here too.

  32. Sam November 2, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    Your hair makes me wish I still had long hair and hadn't cut it off. Then I have to remind myself how much easier it is with short hair lol. That outfit is so adorable, I always want to wear shorts with boots, but I never do. It looks so cute on you I might just have to try!

    Found you through Follow Fest, stop by my blog if you're interested!

    I love this outfit! Your style looks so fun and yes days where you have no where to go always are a lot easier to dress up for =) Take care!

    Hi! Found you via Pinterest and wanted to say thank you for the video tutorial. I love twist and pin hair-dos, but so often it's hard to see how they are done just from pictures. Your video is so well done.

    Your blog is darling and so are you!

  35. Ashley@EisyMorgan November 7, 2011 at 3:46 pm #

    Super cute girl. I am going to be featuring you this week at my party. Up tomorrow night:)

  36. Danielle LaPointe January 5, 2012 at 12:56 am #

    great haitstyle! can't wait to try it!

  37. Joanne February 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

    That is adorable. You make it look easy. I swear I am hairstyle challenged. I also have trouble with pinning because my hair has such a fine texture. Everything slips out. Maybe I will try teasing before pinning. Great idea!

    Stopped by from SITS today…and LOVE this video. I have bangs, but think I could modify the front to accommodate them. Super cute!
