End of Summer Party

Skirt: ASOS, Tee: Zara, Shoes: Louboutin, Ring: Roman Luxe, Bracelet: Roman Luxe c/o. Nails: Julep Maven Mandy. 
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I attended an end-of-summer bash and wore this sequin number. In wanting to make this skirt the focal point of the outfit, I decided to pair it with a basic white tee. I'm also excited to share that I've partnered with Paul Mitchell for their truth about curls campaign. I have naturally wavy hair and if I use the proper products, I get a wavy/beachy look without having to use any heat (rather than looking like a frizzy mess). Here I used their Full Circle Leave-In Treatment followed by their Ultimate Wave Gel.
For inspiration and to leave your own #curlconfession, hop on over to their Facebook page!
