Detail in the Fabric

my likes, loves and slight obessions

Throw on your riding boots and pin up a ponytail. Well, maybe not the riding boots, but all these ponytails above defiantly deserve a chance. For me my hair always seems to be down wisping in the wind, but with the hot summer days just around the corner, my long hair needs to be put under some control. Adding a bow or a braid, teasing it out or slicking it back can make any plain ponytail into a statement. Can’t wait to try some of these ponies out on my own hair!
What is your favorite summertime hair?


Work hard…

…and play harder. It seems like the past month has been a blur and my job at Jack Wills has slowly taken over my life, although I can’t complain. Last month I was promoted to supervisor and spending my days hard at work in the store and all the JW events. The complaints you usually hear from others working in retail you will never her from me. The store can’t be busier with the summer season in full blossom, my co-workers could not be any better (or funnier), the customers are great to chat with( and sell to, haha) and the staff discount isn’t half bad either, needless to say, my whole wardrobe consists of Jack Wills.  I can not wait to see what else this summer has to hold with the JW crew, I just know it will be a lot of hard work and even more fun.


Yes, it has finally been done! After much ado and complaining to, well, just about everyone about my lost ten dollar sunglasses, I have finally found the perfect replacements. Ray-Ban’s XL classic Wayfarers , yes XL, are a perfect match!  It has taken over a year to find these luscious sunnies, and just a tad more then ten dollars, but I know for a fact I will not let myself lose these precious babies for three reasons. One; I basically cried when I lost my last pair and know my eyes would more then just water if I lost these. Two; Finding a replacement would be impossible. And three; they are just too cute to lose slight of! Needless to say my recent splurge was much needed and perfect for the sunny summer weather.

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing Dad I could ever ask for.  To us goofing around together and  to him supporting everything I do along every step of the way. I could not thank my father enough for everything he has done and for the unconditional love he gives me everyday.
I love you Daddy. xo
