Nothin' Shabby About That...

I'm just going to take a moment and tell you that yesterday,
I was shabby
I wore the Friar Tuck to work.
 (Not because I wanted to... but I needed pretty hair for the evening!)

You may be asking, "What the H is the Friar Tuck?"
It's where you tuck your hair into an elastic headband,
(which you usually sleep in) to achieve vintage-style curls...
you know.. the very attractive look?

I thought it was so funny that I posted a photo to Instagram
and it was basically all I could talk about all day long.
I mean, I even had the chance to be interviewed by a local news station
(for something completely unrelated)
and I turned it down because I was Friar Tucking-it and wanted to keep it in to
 preserve my curls for that night's event.
Plus, there was no way that the FT was making it's TV debut anytime soon.
I bet you would've loved to see a clip of me, wearing my most fancy hairstyle,
floating around YouTube.
Actually... maybe I should have done the interview.

In addition to my shabby-ness, I had to text Daniel to tell him about my new wear-to-work style
(because he absolutely dislikes the Friar Tuck).
His response?

Made me giggle all day long.

See, I told you.

But you know what's NOT shabby?

That second picture looks like a bridge on the Seine in Paris. Sooo pretty! Both the bridge and the dress!

Allyson McGuire said...

This looks like something I would do...I once went to class with my hair in a purple scrunchie (...because I had forgotten that I slept with it in).

This is actually one of my favorite hair styles! It's so easy and everyone is always so impressed! I love it with some big earrings and a cute dress, and then the added bonus of having amazing curls the next day, in my world it's totally a win-win
