striped sweater + chambray (and a sock bun)

I’ve been seeing a lot of striped sweater over chambray shirts with statement necklaces and I had to do my own version. Plus I bought this new sock bun contraption and I wanted to share my findings with you all…

I’ve been wanting to do the sock bun thing for a while but wasn’t too sure about using an actual sock. While I was out looking for tights at TJ Maxx, I found the Bend-a-Bun sock bun contraption and since it was on clearance for $4.50, I didn’t mind that it was the wrong color (for blonde hair not brown).

Well I’m happy to report that it’s very easy to use and lasts pretty much all day. It does help if you have thicker hair (I have fine hair and it’s frizzy and/or curly so here I had to straighten it). Instructions are provided and what’s cool is that you can make several different hairstyles with it, not just a sock bun.

  1. Your hair looks so cute like that! I have really thick hair, so my if I put it in a high bun, it looks similar (without the sock/contraption!). I think it’s such a cute look! Oh and I love your outfit – the chambray looks perfect layered under the sweater!

  2. Love this outfit, especially that beautiful statement necklace! Oh, and I still cannot get over those fabulous oxford flats!!! The sock bun is absolutely adorable as well! 🙂

  3. I’ve never tried a sock bun. I always just twist my hair up and use a rubber band to hold it. It looks really cute though. It looks like your bend a bun contraption is a success! And a cute outfit too.

    1. the bendy sock thing is great and so easy to use. If I haven’t had time to straighten my hair and I want to wear it up, I just twist it up with a rubber band too, but my hair is so fine, I really do like the added bulk of the contraption. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Miche! Yeah, I remember first seeing the sock bun with an actual sock on pinterest and thinking “I’m not coordinated enough to do that” LOL! so I’m glad they came out with easier ways to do it. 🙂 xoxo
