T3 Micro Whirl Trio Styling Wand Review


Happy Friday friends! Y'all know how much I love my T3 styling tools so I'm super excited to share  the infamous Whirl Trio Wand with you today. This is by far my favorite product from the T3 line. It's seriously made all my hair dreams come true!! I know I know, you're thinking really Courtney? Dramatic much? Haha In all honesty though this wand is a game changer! You'll be able to achieve gorgeous waves, curls and texture in a matter of minutes and they last all day!

Before we dive into the different types of curls, I want to share all the features. The coolest thing about this wand is the interchangeable barrels. You are really receiving three styling tools in one! A 1" straight, 1 1/2" straight and a 1 1/4"-3/4" tapered. There are 5 heat settings ranging up to 410-degrees. For me personally I keep it on a 3 because this baby is HOT and only takes a second for each curl to set but for those of you with thicker hair 4 or 5 would be perfect. It also has a 360-degree swivel cord that keeps it from tangling while your using it. That is one of my biggest pet peeves so I'm definitely giving it bonus points for that one!


Now on to the different styles. Each barrel helps you create a different look. Whether you prefer spiral curls, mermaid beach waves or full bodied volume the Whirl Trio has you covered! Most often you see me rocking the piecey tousled waves. I love the effortless textured look,  just like I've spent the afternoon on the beach. To achieve this look yourself, you'll need the 1 1/4" tapered barrel. Start by wrapping each section of hair two to three inches from the root down. Then leave an inch free at the end to create that perfect straight finish. The smaller the section the more texture your hair will have. I've provided a few images of all these styles with each barrel listed below.

1 1/2" straight - Full volume waves

1" straight - Spiral curls

1 1/4"- 3/4" tapered - Messy textured waves


I hope you found this review useful and if you have any questions I didn't answer leave them for me in the comments below. Also this set is currently 10% + free shipping! It rarely goes on sale so take advantage while you can!! I've linked it and all product details from this post. Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!

How to Style a Kimono for Spring



I'm partnering with one of my favorite online boutiques today Southern Roots TX to show you to style a kimono for Spring. Y'all know I have a serious obsession when it comes to kimonos! I'm pretty sure I've posted at least four on Instagram in the last month. I just can't quit this trend, it's by far my go-to piece for the warmer months and here are few reasons why. 

Minimal effort -  As a style blogger I'm constantly thinking of how to put the perfect look together, should I wear this top with these jeans, pink flats or nude heels, ect. It's so nice to have an item in your closet you know you can grab and no matter what you pair with it you're sure to look and feel cute!

Comfort - While Spring is the time to break out your sundresses and short skirts more often than not it requires some sort of layering piece. Ditch those structured jackets and itchy cardigans for a flowy kimono that allows you to move and breathe.

Countless Styling Options - Like I mentioned before you literally cannot got wrong with styling. Trying layering it over a romper or sundress, cutoffs and a tee, pair with wedges, gladiators, or booties. You can achieve so many different looks all with one amazing piece!


I chose this particular kimono from Southern Roots for it's fun print and pom accents. By pairing it with a fresh white on white combo, I'm letting it do all the talking. 😉 I definitely plan on wearing it to the beach as a coverup too! Be sure to check out all of Southern Roots TX new arrivals! They just got in some seriously cute items like this dress and this top! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Red Floral Maxi Dress



Today I'm sharing this gorgeous maxi I wore on Easter Sunday. I totally meant to post this Monday but hubby and I took a little trip down the coast to the OBX. The weather was Amazing!! Even though I live seaside, I haven't had a "official" beach day yet this season. So I took full advantage, unplugged and got my sundaze on! Isn't it funny how doing things you typically do are so much more fun when your out of town? Any who back to this amazing dress from SheIn. This is the perfect dress for Spring/Summer but even more so for vacationing. It's lightweight, breezy and very comfy. You'll look like a million bucks wearing it but with little to no effort, literally just throw on and your out the door. With the idea of traveling in mind I completed the look with a tote for all the necessities, an oversize sunhat & a pair of comfy wedges. This dress also buttons all the way down the front so you can adjust how high you prefer the slit. Normally a piece like this would run you anywhere from $100-$150. How would you feel if I told you this beauty is under $35? Oh yes girl, a total must add to your Summer collection!

Also wanted to let you know I'm hosting a fun giveaway with Charming Charlie over on my Instagram account @whatcourtwore. Be sure to check it out and submit your entry before 4/23! Have a great one y'all!

Pretty Peach Pleats



Happy Good Friday friends!! I've got a pretty little outfit today that can be worn to so many different events. This peach pleated dress is from Chicwish. As you know by now, one of my favorite sites for girly and trendy pieces! If you love ruffles, bell sleeves, anything with bows then this is definitely the retailer for you! I had been searching for what seems like months for a flirty little dress like this. I wanted it to be neutral in color so that I could not only easily transition it throughout the seasons but also have many options when it comes to styling. Mixing feminine and edgy pieces is a combination that I LOVE! Try layering a leather motto over your cocktail dresses for a super chic pairing. Don't get me wrong though, this dress is gorgeous all on it's own! For any of you brides to be it's perfect for showers or a rehearsal dinner. It does run tts but I would suggest a slip or nude undergarments because it's a little sheer especially in certain light. 

Wishing we could travel home to be with family this Easter but still happy to spend the holiday we my favorite fellow and cook a yummy meal to have after church. What are your plans or traditions that you love each Easter? I'd love to hear!  I hope y'all have a blessed weekend!
