Recent Instagram Outfits and Beauty Looks

With Instagram these days, it seems like I only see content from the same five accounts. I know we’re all feeling this way – it’s annoying, but I guess there’s not a lot we can do to fix it. I’m over @msinthemidwest if you’re not already following along. If my photos aren’t hitting your feed, here’s a roundup of my recent Instagram outfits and beauty looks!

With my hair longer than it has been in a while, I’ve been trying to get creative with styling it. On hot, humid days, I use this tutorial for a low messy bun. It’s easy and still looks polished.

Have I mentioned just how much I LOVE THESE TEES? I’m kicking myself for not snagging every single color during the Nordstrom sale. Luckily, all colors are now restocked and still less than $25. I think I just need to add white to my collection, and then I’m all set.

Other hairstyles on repeat are effortless waves and a half top-knot. Both I usually achieve on day-old hair or sweaty, post-gym hair. Cute, right? 😉 If you’re curious how I curl my hair, check out this really old tutorial. My hair was a lot shorter, but my technique is basically still the same. Do you want to see an updated tutorial?

I pretty much wear some variation of this outfit every single day. Boring? Yes. But ridiculously comfortable? Hell yes. You just can’t go wrong with a tee and distressed boyfriend shorts this time of year.

I had a lot of questions about my eye makeup a few weeks back after posting to Instagram Stories. Nine times out of 10 I use this palette. I do plan to film a quick tutorial in the near future!

A summer wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a couple easygoing sundresses. I never thought I’d like a drop-waist silhouette, but it’s actually really cute and flattering! Plus, who would I be if I turned down blue and white stripes … or anything striped for that matter? Also, I live in these sandals – I have them in both nude and black.
