I have to start this post with a giant DISCLAIMER. I am NO fashion blogger. I am no fashionista. I don't go shopping every day. I've never owned aztec leggings. You'll never see me in high heels. And I've done my makeup the same since high school.
But I do have a Pinterest board full of fashion, hairstyle and makeup tips. And I do like reading and seeing how other people "wear their hair in interesting ways" (as Derek Zoolander would say).
So I'm not trying to be cool and trendy and pretend like I know a lot about fashion! But I love following fashion bloggers on IG and seeing how they put pieces together and maybe steal an idea or two here and there. And I think pinning tutorials is always a good idea.
That is my disclaimer. The end.

On to My Love Monday. Today's LOVE is TOP KNOTS. Top knots are funny, because I'm pretty sure we've been wearing our hair in a "top knot" since forever. I distinctly remember my older sister wearing her hair in a half bun all on top of her head in junior high! But that was back when wearing your hair UP made you a tomboy -- not a fashion icon. Now, top knots are all over. And I must say, I'm in love. Mainly because it is the easiest hairstyle when you don't want to do your hair. And it looks like you actually tried! When I used to work as a receptionist, I would do a top knot often, and my coworkers would say, "Wow, you styled your hair so fancy!" to which I usually laughed and said, "this is my I-didn't-shower hairstyle." Apparently something about it makes it look like you actually tried. So try a top knot when you're too lazy to shower and you can be pretend-fancy, too.
I've found some great tutorials for some of my fave top knots and have brought them together here for you. (As Derek Zoolander would also say, "Sounds cool.")
Try a top knot, and you can have the laziest fanciest hairstyle around.
