Ballerina Bun

I finally tried my hand at the “sock bun” technique I’ve heard so much buzz about.  Instead of sacrificing a tube sock though I decided to try it out with a leg-warmer.  It turns out that seems to work just as well, and I spent the day feeling just a little bit like a ballerina.

    I have a slight (i.e LARGE) obsession with the sock bun! I even did a post on it the other day..haha! It’s seriously so easy to do and my favorite part is when you take it out and your hair is SUPER crazy curly big!

    Love this look!

    This is the best sock bun I’ve seen yet! You must have SO MUCH hair! I think I need to go buy a tiny little bobby sock now that I cut my hair and give it a try! ;) Haha. You look GREAT, as always! :)

    Love that you kept the sock bun a little messy! I usually do mine very sleek but I love this look.

    This whole look is super chic! I love how you put the long-sleeved tee under the dress! Sneaky sneaky :) And the bun is gorg! My hair is always in a bun when I get home, but I’ve always equated it with comfy sweats. I really want to try a style like this, though. So put together!
