You guys! I’ve been nominated for the 2014 Utah Style Icon Award!! Fashion doesn’t come naturally to me. We’ve talked about this before! My two best friends are fashion bloggers, Merricks Art and Leanne Barlow, and their styles are effortless. It takes them two seconds to throw an outfit together and they truly understand fashion. They know what patterns and fabrics compliment each other and they are layering and accessorizing ninjas. It’s not that way with me. It takes me awhile to put together a creative outfit, I’m always second guessing my choices and my personal style is something that is always evolving. I just can’t pin it down! I was curious as to why I had be nominated for something that I still don’t completely understand and so I looked up the word personal style. Personal style can be described as the expression of your personality, tastes and preferences as reflected in your decor, clothing and beauty choices. Style isn’t niched with fashion. I was immediately relieved and thought, oh hey! I could be worthy of a style award! I mean seriously, NOBODY — NOBODY knows hair like Twist Me Pretty! haha! While I may not be the most fashionable blogger out there, I do know a lot about character and beauty and I hope that my tastes and preferences are reflected in what I show you here on the blog. I no longer feel like I’m unworthy of this award — I’m actually really excited about it!
If you’d like to see Twist Me Pretty win the 2014 Utah Style Icon Award hop on over to this post here and vote for little ole’ me. I’m really honored to have been nominated and grateful and shocked that I’ve been put in the same pool as some of the other amazing Utah fashion bloggers.

This is the first post I’ve done with short hair…
What are your thoughts? I do miss my old hair but not as much as I thought I would. It still fits in a top knot and that’s usually how I wear it during the week with my kids (naughty naughty twist me pretty) so I haven’t noticed a huge change. It feels so healthy though and I’m loving the flirty look. One thing that’s annoying is that I have to curl my hair everyday if I want it styled. Because it’s not long, the curls won’t stay overnight. The entire reason for the cut was to get my hair healthy again so you can believe I won’t be putting heat on it every day or even every other for that matter. I’m working on a few things and learning to figure out what I can and can’t do with this length. Overall it hasn’t rocked my world like I thought it would. I’m really loving it some days and then really missing my long healthy hair other days.
I’m really trying to embrace a more casual style this summer. I was going to wear these suuuper cute wedges but they’re really tall so I opted for the smaller more comfortable ones. These wedges I’m wearing are quickly becoming my everyday shoe. I found some copy-cats at Old Navy but they were so uncomfortable. These ones are really soft and the heel isn’t stiff at all. Also, do you guys recognize the bag? It was in a wish list post last week and I finally just bought it. I love the color so much, it seriously goes with everything!
Alright, I’ve been super chatty so I’ll let you go! See you next week! Mmmkloveyoubye!
