secondskin 's Thoughts:

Yesterday I found Mel’s (Idee_Geniale) tips for doing these milkmaid braids and just had to give it a whirl! it is actually so stink’in easy and it gives me another excuse to rock the head scarf (which I think I am getting the hang of!) I tried it last night and just wanted to sleep it them! My repeat today was not quite as good since my hair was so clean and freshly dried, but its still working (I think!) I couldn’t resist popping this orange purse that I found at a thrift store in Palm Springs last summer. I think my outfit was actually influenced a little by this photo shoot of Zooey Deschanel in some magazine years ago where she was wearing like a retro swim suit and playing with a big beach ball. It was all sepia and vintage looking a GORGEOUS! I will try to find it in google images or something, but, ya thats where I am going with this.

Ohmygod I LOVE everything about this! the hairdo is so cool and is on my wantlist for if I'd ever grow my hair back out :( And I loved that photoshoot with Zooey (gorgeous girl, so retro and silent-movie like)! I especially love the orange with the stripes, very cool and modern combo!
