  A cream dress of pure cotton, with soft frills and tiny buttons is one of those key dresses for the ultimate 5 piece bohemian wardrobe. It is easy to style : plaid shirt for a grunge touch, leather jacket for an autumn-ready walks, cozy knitted cardigan, high boots and knee high socks, leather sandals, literally anything. This is actually kind of old Mango dress (I remember, I got it as a treatment after passing my graduating exams in the university), but it is that kind of things that get only better with years. I love to call it "my gardener dress", and it goes so well with my Anthropologie golden boots. As long as it gives me that effortless chic look with a bit of vintage vibe, I got nothing else to ask for.

    Dear Beach,
 You didn't happen a lot this summer, and I won't lie - I don't have any regrets regarding the incredibly little amount of time spent together this summer. What can we do, we are both sophisticated grown ups with our own time schedule and obligations to get things done. I know, I know. When we were together back in Tel Aviv, we used to hang out together much more, but things changed. And the time we had together this year, it was priceless. I got to know your North Pacific cold shoulder, I walked all the way with you and my bike, I made you my exclusive tropical getaway, and we collected some unforgettable memories together. Summer comes to an end, but I am not saying you goodbye. Only to the summer. You're always on my mind ( an on my hair). You know I still love you, no matter how gloomy or out-of-the-season you are.
  Yours truly, 
  Oly.

  Well, it's good to have curls. There are almost zero bad hair days in my life. Sometimes though my hair needs a quick fix, and then the sea salt spray comes in handy. I love using the "Beach Babe" from Not Your Mother's. The classic purpose of the spray is to make an easy flowing beach waves : to spray over your hair, twist a few locks and let dry. My tip to get the chill beach hair (the same for "just woke up" hair look) is : turn your head down, use the texturizing spray on a towel-dried hair, twist and crease your locks a little, as a result you'll have more volume and more of that desperate texture. 

  And now, a real secret. You can make your own sea salt spray in less than 20 secs at home. I realized that when I ran out of my Beach Babe spray, and needed a solution asap. Basically, the main ingredient is salt - that is exactly what makes your hair look naturally twisty. So, all you need is : empty spray bottle ( repurpose the one you just finished!), 1 tablespoon sea salt ( kosher salt is also good), warm water and a teaspoon of coconut oil. Mix and shake in the bottle, and go get the beach easy hair look you're dreaming about.
