Affordable Fall Style with Kohls

I can't believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving already! I really wanted to go back east and spend the holidays with my family but we decided to spend it with the in laws this year and hopefully make it back east next year. I might also add that i'm a little glad we're not having to make that long flight with two kiddos though ;) Anyhow I can't wait for my turkey, wine and pumpkin pie food coma at the in laws tomorrow! It's finally chilly and Fall like here in SoCal (YEAH!) so today's post is all about cold weather affordable style from KOHLS!

I'm all about light layering pieces lately and this shag vest is so soft and comfy! I wore it recently with my favorite flares and go to flannel for an everyday casual look.

My Beachy Waves Hair Routine with Pantene Pro V

Alright loves, today we're tackling one of my most requested hair care regimen! Even as a busy mama of two I still try to keep myself somewhat pulled together (most days at least ) so today I'm sharing my  easy go-to beach waves hair routine! So let's get to it!
I'm currently using and loving  Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Nourishing Shampoo and a Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Hydrating Conditioner. 

I  grew up using Pantene Pro-V products and love the way they make my hair smell. They're great quality and it's always a bonus that they're budget friendly too! My hair tends to be a bit on the dry side so I really love how the Daily Moisture Renewal line makes my hair feel soft and hydrated (especially on the ends) and protects my hair against damage.
After I wash and condition with Pantene, I towel dry my hair. When my hair is about 70% dry I use a round brush and my blow dryer to tame my natural waves. Next I section off my hair into three, middle and bottom. 

Starting with the bottom section first I take one inch sections and wrap the hair around my 1.5 inch curling iron (I swear by this curling iron!) rolling away from my face. My hair doesn't hold curl very well so if I want it to last longer (I used this smaller barrel iron) I spray each section with a bit of hair spray before I curl it. I usually hold it on each individual section for 5-10 seconds. 

I then open the clamp and let the section slide into my hand (keeping it still in the wrapped circular shape) and hold it there to cool for a few seconds. I find the curl holds a little longer when I allow the section to cool in place. After the bottom section is done I continue the same steps on the middle section and finish up with the top section. 

Lastly I give one good hair spray all over and run my fingers through the curls to loosen them up for  effortless everyday beach waves. After each pregnancy I get these random regrowth of baby hairs along my hairline. When they start to grow out they stick straight up! I tame these flyways by adding a dab of Pantene's Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner.
I hope this was helpful for you ladies and please let me know if you have any other hair questions!
