Braids and Bows

I've been experimenting with my hair lately because it's probably time I learnt to do things with it. Plus it hasn't been this long since about 6th grade, so I'm trying new things! This time I did braids. It'll be nice to know how to do a few hairstyles that keep my hair up since it'll be quite hot this summer.

skirt: forever 21
top: h&m
cardigan: target
shoes: shoe carnival


And...mid-motion shot!


I've been an eyeliner addict for years, but I'm actually comfortable not wearing it now. Once in a while. It looks quite summery to me with a colorful lip. Though my eyes are my better feature so I tend to play them up more. I must just be more comfortable with my face in my wizened, almost-graduated-from-college age. 


This outfit is really colorful. I didn't noticed until now. I wear color so regularly I guess I don't notice when an outfit is all colors and no neutrals...

Also, today I epic finished my essay I should have been doing for over a week. I wrote it at warp speed and you have no idea the relief that is enveloping me right now. I sat from 2:30 to 10:30 and just wrote. Knocked out 12 pages, turned it in, and am patiently awaiting a grade that is hopefully a passing one. Happy Wednesday indeed!

This is so pretty. I love how perfectly all the colors intertwine and work together and your hair is beautiful.

Yay, good job on finishing your essay! Colourful outfits are the best. I too recently gave up my huge eyeliner habit, so refreshing! The kids at school kept giving me hassle about it, so I've adopted a more fresh faced approach and I love it. (Fresh faced is a loose term, there's still a fair bit of make up caked on) I save eyeliner for special occasions now and it makes me feel way more dressy.

Your hair looks so great like this. It's hard to experiment with shorter hair.
