It's crazy how "demi dungarees" is the same thing as "short overalls" in the same language.
In either case, demi or short, I've had my eye on this piece for a couple of weeks now. I've imagined it with everything from eaten-away t-shirts to prim and proper button-downs, but the top that sticks out most is always the sleeveless button-down. With nude heels, naturally. I can't get the image out of my head, so I decided to put together an entire look here. Where would I wear this? Saturday evening to grab some cocktails and bites. My mind is already there...

My current arsenal: Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo & Joico Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo
My love of dry shampoo is a fairly new one, but I can already tell it will be a long and committed one. I first started using a version of this aerosol-turned-powder after visiting Hair Team for a trim. Dalia, the owner and my stylist, advised that I try dry shampoo to limit my weekly hair washes and save my hair from the over-drying results of regular shampoo (she also recommended I use baby shampoo for my fine hair, but I haven't made that leap yet. Expect a rave review on that in a couple of months). Without much hesitation, I took her recommendation to heart and purchased my very first can of Pssst. Get ready for the kindest words I've ever connected to a class of beauty products.
As I mentioned, I have fine hair which is prone to showing oiliness quickly. Dry shampoo solves two of my problems: it gives my hair volume without weighing it down by the end of the day and it absorbs any oil instantly. What's even cooler is that I go about four days without washing my hair and it's not gross, as I'm sure you're imagining and judging. At first, I was skeptical that dry shampoo would help me reduce the number of washes I gave my hair each week. But as time went on, I found myself less in need of a regular shampoo.
I could go on and on about my love of dry shampoo, but I won't bore you with the public displays of affection. Instead, I'll just let you explore the joys of the literal dry clean yourself.
