I just want to start off by asking everyone to ignore the state of my hair in this post! hah. The day (and my hair for that matter) started out so amazing and beautiful, perfect for dinner and drinks with my best friend. However, during the 2 minute ride from my house to dinner, the weather got a little cray cray, and then so did my hair. Womp womp.

This was a fun, fun, fun night! It started off with a simple happy hour with my best friend and turned into crashing a concert playing at the Stone Pony across the street. My best friend and brother were both attending and had extra tickets on hand, so I decided why the hell not! I have no idea who the band was but they were fantastic! These shoes, by the way, are the ultimate. I would wear them every day if I could. Trapsing all around Asbury in these bad boys ALL night you would think I would be crying by the time I got home, but no. They are the most comfortable shoes I own that are not sneakers or flats. If you can find a pair, buy them. You will not regret it!
Like the braid in my hair? Watch my tutorial on how to copy the style! (I filmed it like 2 & a half years ago when I was pregnant with Charlotte!) Enjoy. xo
This is my take on this hair style. Usually you can find the upside-down french braid accompanied by a high, top-knotish looking bun. That doesn’t really work so well for me. First off, top knots never really look as glamourous on me as I want them to, ya know? Secondly, being that I am now 8 months pregnant, there’s some extra weight in my face that I feel like could be seen from the moon now and top-knot buns only seem to accentuate that. Wonderful. When I was in high school I always had a tendency to make this stupid face when anyone took a picture of me and it always looked like I had a double chin. He showed up so often, in fact, that my dear friend Jed thought it appropriate to name him Chester Cottompot. When someone would tag me in a picture on Facebook, Chester would get a tag as well. I lost him for a while, but he’s back now. Oh how I’ve missed you, Chester, really. So I modified this hair style a little bit to be more…. me (and flattering). This is how it’s usually found:
Gorgeous… elegant… beautiful. And unfortunately, not my cup of tea. This is my “elegant” upside-down french braid look.
I also noticed that my french braids do the opposite of normal french braids and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it stop doing that! Mine are like, inside out, they don’t lay flat against my head. Even when I do my own regular french braids this is how they come out. I know it has something to do with the way I hold the hair and the direction I weave it in, but I can’t change it. So my upside-down french braid is all kinds of different from everyone else’s, haha.
So this is how I do it, folks. I do an inside out french braid (purposely or not, who knows?), I braid the hair all the way to the end, then I use it to hold up my wavy, messy pony tail. And there ya have it. I’m going to keep playing around with this and see if I can figure out how to do the inverted braid, but for now this is my ish. What do you guys think? Have you tried this hair style yet? Would you try it with a sleek top knot or a messy pony tail like mine? I like the bun, and someday when I have something fancy to go to I may just attempt it. For now, I like the ponytail because I think it makes this hairstyle wearable for just, hanging out and going out. Keepin it fun without making it too fancy.
aaaaand this is just me being silly, HI. =p Til tomorrow, lovers! Have a wonderful day. Kisses.
