Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

pretty dresses n’ pretty hair!

Hellllllo girls! TGIF am I RIGHT? 
So… quick thoughts today. My lil V sent me a dress that pretty much mirrors the one I talked about on DON the other day (Jess, cover of Elle, circa 2005?)
Anyhoo, it is from LuLu’s ironically… pretty close huh? 

Of course I found some other dresses  that I needed to have. With so many weddings and functions this summer I have decided these need a home in LouLou’s closet as well. Speaking of, doesn’t that sound like a boutique? LouLou’s Closet. I sink so! (french accent)
ON to my next matter, I needz your help. I have this girl’s wedding… 
This girl, riiiiight here see?
Anyway I have her wedding this weekend and I have found the TOO PERFECT FOR WORDS dress for the occasion. You see everyone was asked to where a dash of pink to support the Susan G. Komen foundation (Dana’s momma is a survivor, cue Destiny’s Child) and so I found a perfectly PinkLouLou dress. Get excited. 
Anyway, so I am having MAJAH issues, like what EVAH shall I do with my hair!?!? Bill Meck and I are about to fight because currently he is forecasting a ridiculous 92 degrees in this ever so lovely humid Kentucky June, and we all know LouLou tends to stay on the warm side. So of course, my main concern, is my hair. This sister is gonna be dancing outside all night, so I’m thinking we must do some sort of hair up option. Who better to turn to for hair advice? You guessed it. 
Which one of these fab do’s shall I use as my inspiration? Background info you need is my dress is rose pink, empire waist, A-line, short, and has like a scoop neck. 
Sidenote- It somewhat resembles the dress Carrie is wearing in her ‘Mama’ video…but anyways… 
Choices are…

    I personally like 2 or 3… with that being said you will look adorbs no matter what I am sure of it!!! HAVE SO MUCH FUN! Can't wait to see pics 😉 And can I get an AMEN for this heat?!!!!

  2. Emma says:

    I would go with numero 2. It is dressy enough and will stay out of your way when dancing it up.

  3. Allie says:

    3 for sure!! I did my hair like that for an outdoor event recently (like you I run a bit on the warm side). I stayed perfectly cool. My only issue was my bangs. I had to pin them back eventually. The southern humidity got the best of them.

  4. simple girl says:

    I loveeeee number three.

  5. shay says:

    i like 2 or 3, though i think 3 looks a bit more dressy… love them ALL though.

    And the dresses are fab! they have really great prices too!

  6. Holly says:

    I like 1 or 3, but I'm sure your hair will look great no matter what! Have fun!!

  7. Jessi says:

    I pretty much always love Carrie's hair, but the first style I really love. I'm sure you'll look gorgeous however you do it. 🙂

  8. Ashley says:

    I think 2 and 3 are super cute, but your hair is going to look amazing no matter what you do, because it ALWAYS looks amazing!

    I am loving all of those cute dresses! The pink one is just fantastic!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Ashley says:

    I LOVE #2 for your hair =) PLUS you are the queen of pouff! =)

    LOVE all those dresses too! *sigh* I can't wait to be finished with buying our home…maybe I can update my wardrobe haha =)

    You are going to look UH-mazing in WHATEVER you wear. I think up for the hair is a better option especially if you'll be dancing the night away in the heat =)

  10. Heather says:

    I love 2 or 3 🙂 Happy Dancing!

  11. Caitlin says:

    I really like option 2, especially since you are a super pro at the poof! As a southern girl I know about that humidity and heat too and you're definitely going to want your hair off of your neck and back if you are dancing the night away outdoors. Can't wait to see what you choose!

  12. Heather says:

    I vote #3!! I wish I could do my hair that well.

  13. Holly says:

    If it is going to hot and humid then I think #3 is perfect!

  14. Raquel says:

    I would definitely go with 2 or 3! Gorgeoussssss

  15. Arianicious says:

    I love options 2 and 3…either would be beautiful.

  16. Kristen says:

    Love number 3! 🙂

  17. Delaney says:

    2. two. 2. two.
    definitely 2!

    You will look gorg!

  18. Nicole says:

    I like them all but I think #3 would be best since it would be completely off your neck. Have fun!!

  19. Emily says:

    #3!! #2 is like the every day fab mo po. you need more jazz for the biffies big day

  20. Mandy says:

    #3!!! I did my hair like that for my sorority semiformal last fall and LOVED it. it will look great on you!

  21. Callie says:

    LOVE #3! It's so cute!

  22. Courtney says:

    Love #3! 🙂

  23. kallisue says:

    #3 for sure!!!!! It's amazing!!! And it would keep your hair of your back, neck and face in the blazing heat!!!

  24. Maura says:

    #3!! that's how i wore my hair for a wedding i was in last july and it worked perfectly for crazy dancing! good luck!

  25. Michaela says:

    Oh gosh they are all beautiful! But i think my very very favourite is 2…no 3…no 2 definitely 2! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

  26. Lol I just bought the teal one yesterday from LuLu's for my engagement photos!

  27. melissa says:

    Clearly they'd all be gorgeous on you but I think 2 or 3 would hold up best with heat and dancing.

  28. Sarah says:

    I like #2! It's simple, but still elegant enough for a wedding!

  29. K says:

    I would definitely go with number 3. The last thing you need if it is hot and stinky is a pony tail sticking to you. Three is up off your neck and a little messy-chic that even if you shake it all night your hair will still look fabulous!

  30. They are all pretty but I think 3 would be the best. Have fun!

  31. Ashley says:

    I vote for 1 or 2 🙂

  32. Jenn W says:

    i like 2…B and 3! since it's going to be SO hot, it'd probably feel better to get it up off your neck.
    hope you have a fun time at the wedding, can't wait to see what style you go with…and your dress!

  33. Mrs. Parker says:

    All are good options — but if you're going to be dancing the night away…I'd go with #2!

  34. Katie says:

    LOVE # 3 🙂

  35. 3! It is still flowy looking but won't be in your way or start to look messy

  36. Pamela says:

    I love #2! 🙂

  37. Jane Marie says:

    Ooh I'm torn between 2 and 3, but I'd say either one of those would be great because most of you hair is up aka it won't get all disgusting in the heat 😉 have a fab time at the wedding! xo

  38. Natalia says:

    I vote #3, but I think you would look adorable in any style! 🙂

  39. Cathy says:

    I love them all But I would go with number 1 !
    good luck deciding ! I'm sure you will look gorg no matter what !

  40. Samantha says:

    #4 Girlie. Your hair is so long and gorgeous. Go for it!! 🙂

  41. P!nky says:

    LUCKY #3 Miss LouLou!

  42. I love 2 or 3…I have serious hair envy. I could never style my hair like that. I'm not patient enough!

  43. Emily says:

    I LOVE #3!!!!

  44. Mrs.Hammar says:

    #3 for sure!! Can't wait to see your pics! I'm sure you will look great no matter how you do your hair!

  45. Rachel says:

    #3! You would look sooo gorgeous! Have fun!

  46. The Aly Way says:

    love 2! fun, cute, and will keep your hair off your neck while dancing!

  47. ♡ bAs says:

    That is too funny! As soon as you mentioned hair up looks… I immediately thought, well that is easy, WWCD (What would Carrie do)?

    So number 1 I love, but It would be hot to have your hair on your neck in such high heat and humidity. I think 3 would be best. I like 2 as well, but it depends how hot you think you would be. Good luck with your decision! <3

  48. Having the same dilema here girlfriend!!! 🙁 I like #2 and #3 but I am sure you will look beautiful either way! Cant wait to see you! XO

  49. 3 would be gorg!!!

  50. Lo says:

    2 or 3! But before looking at the options I had something more like 3 in my head! I'm sure you'll look beautiful! Can't wait to see pictures!!

  51. Dana & Ryan says:

    Numero 3!! Gorgeous, and it makes me want long hair again! Have fun!

  52. Pamela says:

    all would look great on you but I think number 3 is the best option for a wedding! 🙂

  53. Number 3, Number 3, Number 3!! You'll be a purdy purdy princess, I know!

  54. Natalie says:

    First of all, this post gave me Carrie hair envy.

    Second of all, I LOVE LOVE LOVE #2! if that's now the perfect ponytail poof i dunno what is!! Can't wait to see what 'do you do and your fab dress!!

  55. Courtney says:

    Love love love #3!!! good luck choosing girl! Can't wait to see the dress! 🙂

  56. Raven says:

    where do I start, I LOVE lulu's clothes! and I am so getting that dress, I think it's a must that we meet up one day and both wear that dress out together HAHAHA!! I'm totally being serious…

    ok about that hair. #2 and #3 I LOVE. If it's going to be 92 degree, hair down would be a disaster. and if I had to choose between 2 and 3, I would go with 2, I LOVE LOVE that poufy ponytail and side swept bangs. My jess simpson bump up the volume should be here next week and I cannot wait. I keep youtubing videos of it and it looks AMAZING. I CANNOT get a pouf to save my life, so I'm pretty excited about this. anyway, can't wait to see the pics!

    Happy Wedding to little tiny!!

  57. Jes says:

    #3! LOVES the side knot!

  58. Caitlin C. says:

    These dresses are beautiful!! And my favorite hairstyle is #3… but you really can't go wrong with any of them! 🙂

  59. Emily says:

    #3 is definitely a favorite! Not too over the top, but still very classy!

  60. Trashy says:

    as an aside, i love that nude dress.
