Braids!!! Let me start this off by saying, I have never been able to rock this look, but I found a great tutorial over at Cupcakes & Cashmere that is both simple and lovely. Basically, all it entails is braiding two pigtails, flipping them upside down, and some artistic bobby-pinning.
On an unrelated note, I did spend about $100 at Forever 21 (which is a lot for me, especially since Leah and I have been thrifting so much lately) solely on lace apparel. This is it for a while, which I'm promising myself. I pulled some of the pieces below, my favorite being the black lace biker shorts! I somehow managed, with determination and skill, to shove myself into an XS, that being the only size left.
