DailyBuzz Style 9×9: The Perfect Summer Hairstyle

For me, the perfect summer hairstyle is one that keeps me cool and collected even in the hottest temps and the most stifling humidity.  Since my hair has the tendency to swell as the dew point rises, french-braids have become my saving grace.  Today, I opted for two (one on each side of my noggin) and let the ends roam free rather than tucking them in like I usually do.  And the best part? I can throw on a cute chapeau without having to worry about hat hair later!

Now about today’s outfit…

I’d been reluctant to try a denim vest, but I finally caved when I spotted this dress a few weeks ago.  The style seemed a little ambitious hanging on the rack, but I fell in love as soon as I tried it on.  The bottom portion is very sheer, so it was a bit of a challenge finding something to wear underneath.  I initially tried a body-conscious mini skirt, but it rode up when I walked and was a little too revealing for my taste.  As luck would have it, I found a pair of cropped leggings in the perfect shade of aqua that worked out perfectly!
