dirty little secret


striped boatneck tee (Beall’s Outlet, $12) | Talbots shorts (secondhand) | Style&Co wedges (Macy’s, last year) | Goorin Bros hat (m.marie boutique)


This hat may look like an innocent accessory, but it’s got a purpose — covering up my dirty, dirty hair. TMI? Maybe. But for all you busy girls that don’t have time to wash your tresses all the time, you’re not alone. Sometimes you’re just past the point of dry shampoo, and the best you can do is disguise with well-placed headwear. {Local ladies, m.marie has some seriously cute hats this season!}

I’ve been spending a lot of time this week getting the boutique organized, and it’s coming along nicely! Snapping some photos to post is on my to-do list, but it’s buried beneath lots of paperwork, handmade tags, Quickbooks tutorials, and new inventory item receipts. My amazing girlfriends have been so supportive, and they’re all cleaning out their fabulous closets to help me stock A Pretty Penny with lots of great designer pieces.

I can’t wait to share more with you guys, and I hope if you’re from these parts you’ll come and see me in the coming weeks!

    yeah i try not to wash my hair too often – being a curly gal it actually looks better a little oily…gross I know! I cant do hats though…i just dont have the right head for a hat so I just wear one when Im at the beach.

    Cant wait to hear more about your shop, you have FAB style so Im sure everything will be great!. Will it be an online shop too?

    You look so cute and comfy! I also hide under hats due to bad hair days (like today lol).

    I talked about everyone needing good bad hair day hats in my style guide: http://youtu.be/FGlrpoPLltQ
