OOTD: J.Crew No. 2 Neon Tweed Pencil Skirt + Stella & Dot Spirit Bracelet Autism Awareness Month


This is what I wore for Easter, last weekend.  The second I saw this skirt, I had to have it.  I love that the tweed is classic and that the neon is so updated and modern.  J.Crew is so covet worthy!




 My Stepford Wife mini beehive was kind of happenstance and not intentional. 


It's the result of a lot of dry shampoo.  I'm using the Oscar Blandi Pronto dry shampoo spray but my friend swears by the Oribe one.  As a girl with long hair, I am always looking for the best dry shampoo because my hair is long, and only the top gets oily, the rest of it (the "tail", etc.) always looks perfectly washed.  I am super lazy when it comes to doing my hair, so I want to extend the style as long as possible.

I am Casper.
After my hair had been up for a little while, I took it down and had a Pantene moment - this dry shampoo stuff really works!   Which is your favorite dry shampoo brand?



Now, onto the next course of business.  Stella & Dot sent me this Hope Bracelet to help kick off their Autism Awareness month fundraiser.  They have a specially curated online boutique where you can purchase some awesome jewelry and feel good about it.  Because April is National Autism Awareness month, Stella & Dot will donate a percentage of sales to the Holly Rod foundation and they will guarantee a minimum of a $10,000 donation.  I love a socially conscious company...if you remember,  in October they were donating proceeds from the sale of their Hope Bracelet towards the fight against breast cancer.  




 The Spirit Bracelet is $29 and is worth every penny.  Check out their online Autism Boutique to see what other items are included as part of the fundraising efforts.
