3 Easy Breezy Hairstyles For A Summer Wedding

Summer weddings combine elegant style and casual chic to perfection, making them ideal for post-ceremony bonfires, dance parties, and more! I should know, my own wedding is just 9 days away! (OMG it’s actually happening!) In order for you, the guests of a summertime wedding, to look great as a summer wedding guest without having to spend hours at the salon or go crazy trying to figure out how to do it yourself, I’ve gathered some of the prettiest and easiest low-maintenance summer wedding hairstyles.

1Boho waves– Boho waves are one of our favorite looks for summer and they’re perfect for low-maintenance weddings. Check out some boho waves tutorials on YouTube to easily learn how to recreate this style yourself. Then add pizzazz with a single flower behind your ear (a floral crown says “I’m the bride”, so just go for a dainty accent flower as a guest) or a rhinestone boho headband.

Simple topknot –When you want your hair off your face, but you still want to look put together, a simple topknot is the way to go. Put a shine serum or Argan oil (my favorite!) on your hair to give your locks a rich gloss, or try anti frizz serum if you know the humidity will tempt your mane to frizz up (I know mine always does!). Then pull your hair back (parting is optional here), create simple topknot, and secure it with your preferred hair clip. Bobby pins are a must to capture any flyaways, and hairspray helps hold this look in place. Add glitz to this style with a fancy bobby pin accents or by wearing a fun fascinator, depending on how fancy you want to get.

Messy braid –Perfect for a wedding that’s rustic, beachy, or otherwise outdoors, a messy braid gets your hair out of your face and allows you to show off statement earrings, yay for sparkles! This look naturally reads as casual, which means that you won’t upstage the bride. To add a little more flair to this style, weave ribbons (or a strand of delicate pearls!) into your braid or poke flowers into the braid.

It’s no secret that I’m absolutely in love with pineapples! Besides this fanciful fruit print taking over the fashion scene for the last year, pineapples happen to be my absolute favorite fruit! With such sweet yet tangy notes of deliciousness, they’re the perfect accessory to every meal…and outfit!

I was lucky to score these gorgeous pineapple pom pom shorts via Poshmark for a mere $15! Amazing right? That’s why I just love shopping on Poshmark so much because you never know what kind of fancy you can find!

The black vegan leather purse featured in this outfit was actually from JustFab, but I scored it at my local Goodwill store for just $9. Hey, what can I say…I’m a savvy shopper! My mom taught me well to always keep your eyes open because you never know what kind of deals and steals you may happen upon!

Whenever I wear a bold print, such as these bright pineapples, I always pair them with a solid counterpart in order to add balance. While I occasionally mix and match prints, this is a surefire way to create an outfit with interest without going over the top.

How are you wearing pineapples this season? Comment below!

This week, Wear In LA teamed up with 9th & Elm to bring you an article all about how bloggers can learn to work with brands in a paid sponsorship/business relationship. I have had the immense pleasure of working with 9th & Elm, a flash sale site that features handmade items from independent designers, in a couple of successful blogger-brand collaborations, which led us to post this piece. You can see the full post on TheWriteLife.com, where you will also find quite a number of helpful pieces if you are also a blogger or freelance writer.

In this collaborative piece, Clay and I talk about how it looks from both ends of a blogger-brand collaboration and share tips about how to properly pitch a brand that you’d like to gain sponsorship from. We based our answers on proven methods that have worked for both parties and resulted in successful sponsorship campaigns! Every blogger wants to gain sponsored posts or products for review to fuel their blogging content, so the search for sponsors can seem like a never ending cycle if you’ve yet to snag a brand sponsor.

Take the tips shared in this article to boost your attractiveness to brands, polish your professionalism, and learn exactly what brands want to know about you as a blogger before signing on as a sponsor!

 

Feel free to leave a comment if you have more questions – I’m happy to help give advice to any fellow bloggers!
