Heidi Braids


As I write this, snow is slowly starting to pile up outside... and all I can do is look at these pictures I took yesterday and maybe cry a little bit. Welcome to Indiana, where the weather is made up and the forecasts don't matter, as one of my friends tweeted. But that's okay, because I have a new hairstyle to perfect!!

My hair seems to be growing at a snail's pace, but I'm finally able to do more with it!. One of my blogger friends with shorter hair recently wore milkmaid braids, or Heidi braids as I call them, and I was inspired to do my own! I thought they would fall out immediately but with a million bobby pins they were actually pretty sturdy.

I'm also wearing a couple items from the best shopping spree of my life-- the faux-leather clutch and suede skirt are from Anatomy Vintage, which you should definitely check out on etsy!!

  5. Well, I have to admit I'm already a bit jealous you had sunny weather like that to begin with;) But I get that going from that to snow must be pretty horrible.

    Anyway, you look great! This hair-do really suit you. And I love the outfit too.
