$45 Top Worn Two Ways

150 150 Angela Lanter

When I’m shopping, my sweet spot is under $50 for a top.  I don’t love spending more on a top unless it just totally blows me away.  I think it’s because tops are often memorable, whereas a great pair of skinny jeans can be worn 100 times without ever noticing.

This top is $45 and is my favorite trend: off-the-shoulder.  Although this floral print is sold out, it’s still available in black or white, which are great options all year long.  First, I styled this tunic with white jeans and booties.

BP. Off the Shoulder Tunic ($45!)  //  Hudson Skinny Jeans  //  Dolce Vita Garim Wedges (sold out!); almost identical boots here (40% OFF)  //  Sole Society Crossbody (two other colors available)

This tunic easily doubles as a mini dress.  If you are worried about length, size up to give some extra fabric at the hemline.  BP. brand typically runs large and I wear an XS, but I could’ve gone with a Small to make this a little longer as a dress.  I love the look of this top paired with over-the-knee boots for a sassy date night look.  These Steve Madden boots are under $100 and are perfect dupes for the highly coveted Stuart Weitzman tall boots.

9 Headache & Migraine Hacks | Girl Talk Tuesday

150 150 Angela Lanter

One thing I’ve got plenty of experience with is headaches.  Listen, I’m not bragging about that experience…  I’m just saying that I know a thing or two about that nasty word.  And migraines?  Girl, I got you there too.  If you’ve never had a migraine, count yourself blessed. Very, very blessed.

I felt like Girl Talk Tuesday was the best time for us to tackle this topic since we talk about things like period cramps and small breasts.  A lot of times headaches and migraines are hormonal.  Other times they’re hereditary, a result of your environment or a plethora of other reasons.  If you read my birth control blog post, then you know that I went through a dark period of time when migraines literally took over my life.  I learned so much about my body and how to deal with headaches/migraines during that time.  I wanted to share the wealth with any of my sisters who also suffer.

9 Headache and Migraine Hacks:

  1. Pain Killers.  This one is a duh, I know.  But the reason it’s #1 on my list is to not wait until it’s too late to take something for the pain.  Many times I feel like I can just deal with the pain, because it’s no that bad…  Then, all of sudden, the pain takes a quick turn and I’m in severe pain.  Listen to your body.  Take a small dose to knock it out before it gets worse if you know that you have a tendency to get worse before you get better.  I personally use either Advil or Excedrin Migraine.
  2. Chug that water!  Girl, stay hydrated.  Being dehydrated can be the only reason you’re in pain, so try to stay on top of your water intake daily.
  3. Find a cool, dark place.  My migraines come with an aura, so I get about a 30 minute warning.  At the first sign of migraine (aura) I pop an Excedrin Migraine and go find a cool, dark place to lay down.  I’ve found that if I do this immediately, I sometimes only get a mild headache.  If I wait too long, then the headache comes full force.  Being in a cool, dark room relaxes your eyes and keeps you calm.
  4. Turn down the volume.  Being in the quiet will dramatically help reduce the pain sometimes.
  5. Keep an ice pack on hand.  I’ve found that an ice pack placed on the base of my head/neck area really helps manage the pain.
  6. Invest in a steamer.  When my headaches are allergy or sinus related, I find that oftentimes I’m just really dried out.  Sitting under my steamer is such a relief during a bad headache or migraine.
  7. Rinse those passages!  If you’re suffering from allergy or sinus headaches, consider doing regular nasal passages.  As my allergist put it to me, we wash our bodies every day, but we never wash our nasal passages.  Think about all the dust, dirt and pollen we breathe in on the regular.  A nasal rinse can really help to keep those allergy headaches to a minimum.
  8. Olbas oil.  I’m a big believer in homeopathic medicine.  When I can, I use Olbas oil to treat my headaches instead of popping yet another painkiller.
  9. Watch your diet.  Have you noticed that your headaches or migraines come from certain triggers?  Maybe it’s only the week before your period?  Or maybe it’s when you skip your morning cup of coffee?  For me, I know MSG is a major trigger.  Consider journaling your headaches, what you did and ate the day before, and maybe you’ll begin to see a pattern form.

What are your headache tips and tricks?  I feel like I’ve tried just about anything and everything under the sun, these are just the things I’ve found that actually work for me.  Leave a comment and let me know how you treat your headaches.  Also, if you’re noticing more headaches than normal lately, go see your doctor.
