Far Out Friday

After I finished getting ready this morning, I walked into the living room and asked my husband, "Do I look like I belong in the 70s? Should we call it Disco Friday?" A few moments later he responded with, "Far Out Friday." He had me at alliteration. One of the many reasons I married that guy.

Also, I would like to rename this hairstyle, "So Easy a Danielle Could Do It." The sock bun? Horrible mess that ended in the sacrifice of far too many socks. The modified sock bun that involves a pre made mesh thing, which does not include the maiming of innocent socks? long as my hair is wet. Otherwise, with dry hair, I end up with uncovered sections of the pseudo sock thing. And alfalfa sprouts. So uncomely. FINALLY, I found a bun that I can do when I wake up late with curly hair frizzing out farther than I can extend my arms. It's perfect for women without really thick hair.

Yesterday, while perusing our good friend, Bloglovin', I saw a post by  Kate (who's going to be a mommy soon!), and I just love Kate. I have never met her in real life, but she seems sincerely sweet, and girlfriend knows how to do hair. The specific hairstyle I chose (of the three she demonstrates) is The Fancy Bun. I didn't pull out the two pieces of hair because, well, I felt that part made it fancy, and I didn't feel fancy this morning. I did, however, feel "far out." (My hair also felt far out. Thankfully, Kate's little tutorial fixed me right up.)

Pardon the awful quality. It's raining cats and dogs out there.

The Outfit:
Shirt: Old Navy
Sleeveless Cardigan: Gap Outlet
Necklace: The Limited
Bag: Kenneth Cole Reaction via Boscov's
Pants: J Brand via Marshall's

P.S. The hairstyle involves only a hair elastic and bobby pins. No need for socks or mesh or other complicated things. 


  1. Your hair looks amazing! I've only successfully pulled off one of Kate's tutorials, but this one looks easy so I just might try it too. I have never been able to pull off the sock bun or the mesh thingy either. It's been miserable and rainy here too =( boooooo.

  2. Love the outfit and the hair! I never got the sock thing to work and I have this weird fear that you can see the mesh this tutorial you linked to is perfect!!

  3. I love Kate's tutorials as well! She seems like such a sweetheart. I never knew why I could never get the bun just right, and I think you've hit the nail on the head with the slightly damp hair. I will have to try that next time!

    ..and I am very jealous that you found JBrands at your Marshall's.

  4. Hahahaha you are hilarious as always. I have such trouble with the sock bun too but I just thought it was because my hair never does what I want it to. Since your hair is a bit curly/wavy that bun looks so so good! Like you just threw it back and BOOM, perfect hair.
