One reason I was so excited to start my blog is because it has forced me to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things. I have tried different tutorials for milkmaid braids and/or tried it on my own, but it never seemed to work and it always seemed to look silly. After trying Julia Engel’s Crown Twist tutorial on Gal Meets Glam (with braids of course), I fell in love with how simple and cute this hairstyle is! If you are obsessed with braids like I am, you need to try this look. I used these blonde bobby pins and this hairspray to keep it in place.
I am wearing this striped off-the-shoulder top from J.Crew Factory (almost sold out but similar top here, here and similar splurge style here!) with J. Crew jeans (similar style under $60). These jeans are my go-to weekend jeans because they are super comfortable and I have worn them a ton to travel in as well. The shoes are Melrose Market and under $50! (previously worn in this post here).
