classy bathroom shot of my hair and makeup, i tried out milkmaid braids in real life; they are super easy and a welcome change from my usual ponytail (i like my hair up, i don't like the feeling of hair on my neck, although i love long hair! haha)

i also can thank him for finding a little blue typewriter for me today as well!

the yellow high waisted swiss-dot bathing shorts are vintage, and the swim suit is J Crew just thought i'd add them in here

  2. Yours look much better than mine did . . . I think milk maid braids are what I miss most about long hair!
