Braids & Buns


Tee - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Button Down Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - Converse

Wow, it was windy today.  Gale force wind level winds - it was not fun being outside.  A few days ago on Pinterest I saw the french plaits ending in 90's buns, and I had to give it a go myself.  I was expecting it to look stoopid on my head, as most hairstyles that pull my hair straight back usually do, but I think this looks a'ite.  And it keeps my hair out of my face which is always plus.  Especially in gale force wind conditions...
