[Beach hair and a good tan--that's the dream!]
With Spring Break around the corner, all that's on my mind right now is lounging. On a beach. In the sun. And although I won't be partaking in such activities, there's no reason I can't appear that I was in, say, Greece (I recently watched Mamma Mia!) over break. Bronzed skin, a carefree mane, and a suitcase full of beachy, boho pieces are just as attainable in a chilly Midwest city as they are in the Mediterranean. Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried breaking into ABBA song and dance, on the other hand? That'll only happen in Hollywood.
