Work Flair & Big Buns






 
 
 
 
 
Tee-Gee-Eye-Eff!!!
 
I could not be more excited for 5:00pm today.  It is definitely time for some R&R this weekend.  I am also extremely excited to be participating in Shop, Savor & Sip , the 24th Annual Luncheon & Fashion Show benefiting my local Domestic Violence Program.  This is a subject I feel very passionately about.  I am a strong, independent, free-willed woman and I want every female empowered.  As Beyoncé would say, who run the world...  It is nice to be mixing my love of fashion and a wonderful cause.  For all of you local readers, buy a ticket and come support the program this Sunday at the Civic Center from 12:30-3:30.  Lunch is catered and there will be wonderful Fall & Winter fashion from local businesses.  If you follow me on Instagram {@mbfrost} you got a preview of one of my outfits for Sunday.  SO exciting!!
 
Today I wanted to show you a typical outfit for the 9-5 part of my life.  I work in personal finance, and have to be on the business end of business-casual most days.  However, I refuse to let this limit the personal style I pull into my work ensembles.  While this look still feels professional and put-together, I think the fun heart sweater and pop of cobalt in the heels make 9-5 fashion fun. 
 
I also love rocking the major ballerina buns to work.  And no, that is not all  my natural hair.  Quickie how-to:  I start with a high ponytail, and I use both a sock bun{or you can buy one of those sponge ones} AND one of those ridiculous pony-tail fake hair pieces.  You know, the ones that go around your ponytail or bun and look like a circle fan of hair?  Once I have both of those around the ponytail I distribute my real hair water-fall style around the fillers and secure it with an elastic.  wrap the rest of the hair around the base of the bun, pin and fluff!  I know that was a terrible explanation, but hopefully you get the gist.
