#4 Pinspiration: Heidi Braid/Outfit

In my goals for the year is executing more pins from Pinterest. Here is my humble interpretation of some beautiful pins. 


Skirt: thrifted, Belt: thrifted, Boots: Payless, Sweater: Forever 21



I got this skirt for $0.99 at a local thrift store when they were having a 99 cent sale on almost all of their clothing. I love it! I wore it as a maternity skirt over my belly, and now as a regular maxi. I love the pleats, and it can be machine washed. Skirts were a lifesaver while pregnant (they always fit and are comfortable), and are always a popular choice for me, since I live in Texas, where it gets SUPER hot in the summer. The summer also lasts for quite a long time. 

I also thrifted the belt for 1$ or 2$. (I can't remember now.) I love going to thrift stores and finding a piece at a bargain price. It's always fun to go with a friend and help each other find hidden treasures.

Heidi braids are awesome for summer as well. It keeps your hair off your neck and out of your face. I braid mine while it is still pretty wet, so it will be tight and stay in longer. If you want more of the loose and whimsical look, I would braid it dry and have it be second-day hair for more texture.

I crossed mine in back before going around the head.



Used clear tiny hair bands on each end of braid, and crisscrossed bobby pins to pin them together in front.



Lucy wanted to get in on the action.
