If I Could Go Back...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Friends,
Okay, so growing up I didn't go to Homecoming dances. We, good 'ole Cabot High, didn't have dances. Or at least I can't remember having them. We did have proms which is basically the same thing these days. But here are the lessons I would like to impart to you...take them, apply them, ignore them, or whatever you would like to do...

1. wear cute flats. i mean honestly they make ADORABLE flats these days. get some sparkly ones and you are set.
2. go comfy. comfy. comfy. don't go crazy with a dress that is uncomfortable and you have to wear all kinds of craziness underneath to make it work. just go normal.
3. borrow. borrow. borrow. if you have friends that are older or have some cute dresses...borrow.
4. wear YOU. wear something that is you. wear something with natural fabrics and tones. there are moments for va-va glam but only if you live in hollywood and you are going to the emmys. homecoming dances are small town sweet dances...look natural.
5. keep makeup YOU. again, don't change your whole routine for one night. guys like natural YOU. and if they don't, well, not a good guy. add a bit more color to the lips if you want and another coat of mascara but don't get cray-cray.
6. hair. ponytails can be elegant and are so great. enough said.

well, maybe this is more of a lesson in naturalness in homecoming dresses/style. I would just like to have a disclaimer that I have no styling degrees or even any training. I just am sharing what I think is beautiful and what I wish I would have done for my 2 proms in high school and chi omega functions in college. BE YOU.

Be awesome & Love Jesus,
