All Bunned Up




NET International Cardigan - S (purchased in Taiwan) (buy similar)
LOFT Square-Neck Top (really old) - XS (buy similar)
Flower Pin (gifted from Annie)
Turquoise Necklace (really old)


I was going to wash my hair this morning, but it was freezing outside and the idea of being all cold and wet just sent me straight back to bed for another 15 minutes in between the sheets.  So up in a bun my hair went!  It actually ended up taking me almost 15 minutes tease my hair so that it had enough volume to make a bun not look like a little knot on the top of my head.  But thank goodness for the Goody Spin Hair Pins!  My bun can now be big and loose and these little pins make it all stay in place.  These little guys are the ultimate godsend, I tell you.

As for the outfit, I almost forgot about this bandage skirt!  The last time I wore it was actually for my first outfit post ever on my blog.  If you haven't seen it, it's a gem in all it's awkward glory.  To say the least, it's always good to see how far you've come.  :)

Oh, and this post is titled as such because of my hair bun.  Not because of these crazy Urban Dictionary definitions.

I'm first to comment! Wheeee! I love the bun! I use this trick, too, on days I don't wash my hair. Funny you should mention the goody spin pin, I just saw them today at Target and wondered how they worked! You look so cute!

You look anything but little in those pumps -- so fab!
I'll always choose wearing my hair up over washing it, sometimes it can such a nuisance!

You look amazing!!

I always cheat, and use baby powder in my hair if I don't have time to shower. It soaks up any grease. Or I use dry shampoo. I miss having long hair, and being able to just put it up.

Elle said... [Reply]

I love this outfit, you look terrific! Everything just works and those heels are AMAZING. :)

Kirstin Marie said... [Reply]

Cute!! I love your heels, and your hair looks really good! I can never figure out how to make a nice looking bun, I always end up with a little thing on my head. How do you use those pins??? I've been wanting to try them, but they intimidate me & my super fine hair.

silvergirl said... [Reply]

you can work a bun
i still have trouble with the "knot" on the head look
will have to check out the hair pins you mentioned

Ramsey said... [Reply]

I like the bun on you girl! Probably because I'm a big fan of the bun look myself. Which is just another way of saying that I hate washing my hair. Which is gross. And unsanitary. But hey, I'm honest.

kileen said... [Reply]

@silvergirl yes, the pins are great! you can leave your bun kinda loose and the pins will keep it all in place. :)

kileen said... [Reply]

@My Heart Blogged oh i wish baby powder worked on my hair! i tried it once and it turned my hair gray. i looked like an old woman! i guess it was kinda funny. :)

Jen HaHA said... [Reply]

I don't think I've seen you with your hair up? I bet you're cute in a ponytail, too. Wait, have I seen you in a ponytail? The last pic is too cute!
