green gingham, mustard, and pink…and a braid

Yesterday was one of those days when by the time I finally decided to get dressed, my power had turned off for no specific reason and my hair, having been air dried the night before, looked like it belonged on a vinyl cover of Monster Ballads. Having no means of taming it with heat, I did the next best thing and attacked it with hairspray. The bigger the hair, the closer to God, right?  Wrong. It was awful. 
So I did the third best thing and channeled Lauren Conrad circa 2011 or whenever she decided that a front braid was a good idea. I think it gives me a certain je ne sais quoi…as in je ne sais quoi the heck I’m doing with my hair!  Then I put it up into a ponytail and fooled my mother into thinking it was some hip new ‘do, as she kept complimenting me on my tresses when I met up with her yesterday.  As it turns out, people do still wear their hair like this but it felt so foreign to me.
For the sake of integrity, I didn’t crop my head out of these pics. Mostly because my LC-do doesn’t distract too much from the new necklace that I’m obsessed with. Maybe one day I will wear the necklace with a more respectable coif. Until then…

Do you ever braid your hair?  Does it look better than this?

Oh and I’m linking up with Whitney for #backthatazzup Friday!

    Since my hair is too short to put into a pony, I use a sidebraid to mix it up every once in awhile (also great for keeping bangs up when you're working out!) It looks great on you!
