To Space Buns and Beyond

Pull & Bear Knit Fringe Dress (similar)Zara Red Suede Mules (similar, similar), Ellen and James Rattan Circle Bag

I was a bridesmaid (for the first time) for my future brother-in-law's wedding this past weekend and we had the opportunity to pick our own hairstyles for the hair stylist to bring to life. The rest of the girls picked sleek up-dos, cascading waterfalls of curls, or classic styles. Meanwhile, I took this opportunity to get the double buns I've always dreamed of: large, in charge, and in your face.

They took some getting used to and I felt like they grew 20x larger every single time I looked in the mirror. Walking down the aisle and running around the venue I felt pretty self-conscious with my ridiculous look, which definitely stood out from the rest of the bridesmaids. But then someone gave me a thumbs up and called them "space buns" and suddenly I felt badass as fuck. Space buns for the win. Hipster Princess Leia for the win.

I felt so badass I slept on my face all night so I could keep them in pristine condition for outfit photos the next morning. Worth it.


  1. LOVE THE BUNS! You go, girl! (p.s. that bag ain't too shabby, either)

  2. Hahaha I don't know that I could do what you did -- I'm obsessive about showers and hair-washing so the next day the buns would have gone bye bye before I could do anything. I admire your tenacity. You look super cute and that dress looks like so much fun to wear. (I have a thing for anything even remotely flapper-like.)

  3. LOVE IT JEN!!! This hairstyle rocks!!!

  4. It is SO NOT ridiculous, Jen! Are you kidding?
    They're so adorable, suits you very, very well!
    I want these buns in my hair RIGHT NOW!
    Brb looking up tutorials

    Alive as Always

  5. Kudos for being bold and not trying to look like the rest of the girls! Hipster Princess Leia is a winner :)

  6. that bun is the cutest. love the braid detailing
