trend alert: HAIR FLAIR

I started paying attention to the barrette trend when Man Repeller debuted colorful “Repeller Flagpoles” as part of their Holiday Buffet. I associate hair accessories of this nature with my childhood – wearing my hair half-back with a barrette was my signature look from ages 4-9. (Thanks, mom!)

I love a practical trend, and can’t wait to put my stash of hair clips/pins/etc. to use when the warm weather comes and I feel like getting dressed again. In the meantime, here’s some style Pinspiration and a bunch of my bargain barrette picks so you can add some flair to your hair.

For the color-lover.

For the free spirit.

For the star-gazer.

For the cat lady.

For the ’90s kid at heart.

For the minimalist.

For a pop of millennial pink.

For the flirt.

For the beach babe.

long live the mule!

This semi-pinspiration post is dedicated to my all-time favorite shoe: the mule. As someone who is just over 5 feet tall, I’m always looking for shoes that give me a little extra height without being over-the-top. I bought a pair of black mules about a year and a half ago (does that make me a trendsetter?) because I loved the manageable heel and retro vibe…plus they were on sale at H&M.

The chunky, reasonable heel height on these shoes makes them comfortable enough to wear all day, and the style is chic enough to wear for date-night. I’m currently lusting after these Marais sandals, and this Man Repeller feature seriously made me consider investing in a pair. Here are some of my other favorite mules this season:

  1. These Loeffler Randall slides. (Thanks for the inspo, Oh Joy!)
  2. These suede Jeffrey Campbell beauties.
  3. These Steve Madden mules that are straight out of Jackie Burkhart’s closet.
