Jack Rogers Navajo Charm Love

Yesterday I got an amazing deal on Jack Rogers Navajo sandals! Right now, all Jack Rogers at Neiman Marcus Last Call are an extra 40% off and, on top of that, Living Social had a deal that was $25 for $50 at Neiman Marcus Last Call online. So basically, I got the bronze Navajo for around $40 with the shipping!

So excited.

Then today I found this precious necklace with a charm of the iconic Navajo sandal and I just had to share. Any Jack Rogers lovers will appreciate this.

I'm wearing my gold Navajos today in celebration!

Custom Illustrations Love

Have you ever thought about having a custom illustration done of yourself? Though it may seem a little vain, I also think it is such a unique idea and always love them when bloggers have them done. It is an adorable idea to have them done of a friend or a family member too, and you can have it framed or turned into stationery! 

On my 101 in 1001 list, one of the things I want to do is to have a custom illustration done, so I have been doing some research lately. 

Inslee is the first illustrator to come to mind for me because I have been a fan for so long! I could spend hours on Pinterest and Google Images looking at her illustrations, and I'm sure she would do a beautiful job with a commission. She works with professionals to create illustrations for their brands and also does custom stationery.

Ashley Brooke Designs also has a ton of cute options for custom illustrations! She actually has a special link just for illustrations for bloggers, so she can do an illustration for a blog header, an about me page, etc. I like the idea in the picture above of having a custom illustration done for a party you are throwing, like the graduation party depicted. They can put your illustration on all kinds of things, really,  from mugs to sticker!

How precious is the idea of having custom bridesmaid request cards? I absolutely love it! Brittany Fuson does it all as well with custom illustrations, and I was especially into the bridal illustrations on her site. You new brides out there need to get an illustration commissioned ASAP... what a special memento!

Okay how much does that girl pictured look like her illustration? It is just uncanny! I like that I could see on the Veronica Marche site exactly who was being depicted so I could see just how realistic they are. Veronica also does all of the things the other illustrators do, including business cards, which would just be awesome! They look so cute in that black frame, and I can picture mine hanging in my room now!

Prep Hairstyles: Bangs and High Ponytails

Yesterday, I went to my salon just to get a trim and I came out with bangs! I had been thinking about it for a few weeks, but I really made the decision spur of the moment when I was in the chair. I love them! They just give me a bit of a different look and I was getting really bored of having the same style for several years. Here they are:

And here is the picture that I showed the hairstylist:

Before I had bangs, I really hated wearing my hair up because the pieces around my face would not go up with the rest of my hair and just hung there weirdly. Now that those pieces are doing something productive, I would love to try more high ponytails:

Loving them! What are your favorite hairstyles?

Also, make sure to keep checking my "Shop My Closet" page here or my instagram (@preppylovescloset)... I have added new things and reduced others!!
