Notice anything different? Yes, it's true.. I finally took my braids out.
I only say finally because I had them in for almost three months and the recommended time is two, oops. Couldn't help it, they were just way too much fun. And they were definitely became my signature look this summer. I was getting recognized all over the Greater Seattle Area from people who have seen me before and remembered me because of my knee length braids, lol. I WILL DEFINITELY GET THEM AGAIN. They did wonders for my hair, minus the two dreads that formed. Not exposing my hair to any heat/not pulling it up into breakage prone styles like ponytails, gave my hair a well needed vacation. When I took them out my hair was very refreshed and soft! If you have any questions about maintaining box braids/cost/just any general question about having them, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Now onto my outfit..love the sporty yet clean look of these black trimmed white tuxedo shorts
. Lately, I've seen similar styles pop up on the Instagram's of style icons like Kendall Jenner
! Love this bag, the dull head spikes and pastel pink trim give this purse a super feminine look. But its still killer. Win!
ALSO, tomorrow at 7 p.m. is the deadline to enter in H&M's 50 States of Fashion
Contest. A panel of judges will then choose the winner from the photos with the most votes from each region! I'm a little envious of whoever wins.. who wouldn't want a $1k shopping spree at H&M AND a trip to New York Fashion Week?
