I've been wanting to attempt this hairstyle for quite some time after adding it to my Pinterest boards via Asos. For whatever reason, I have no ability to do french braids, but can thankfully manage fishtail braids. The only problem I encounter is that my hair twists as I braid it- I'm not sure how people who do their own hair manage to keep it straight. With my shirt and fishtail braided pig tails, I felt like I was channeling my inner country girl. This plaid shirt is another clearance find on my way out of Marshalls on Black Friday that I picked up for $15. It's a James Perse shirt; originally $188. You can't beat those kind of deals.

My Hair Style
I apologize for the cleavage shot- please ignore. At the time, I decided to crouch down for a close up of my hair style rather than doing the obvious thing and sitting in the desk chair right next to me. I think if I had had the hair style in front of me and taken a little bit more time, I could have better replicated the style. This will definitely be a future repeat.

We went out to eat that night at a local restaurant in the center of our town. It was one of those difficult nights with Faith- she didn't want to be in the high chair, she was getting into everything, and had a few high pitch screaming fits. Needless to say, there were a few moments where I broke out into cold sweats as embarrassment and anxiety kicked in that fellow restaurant patrons would be giving us the eye. But then I figured that we were out before 7PM on a Friday night and we're entitled to some social time. We tried snapping a few photos of me and Miss Faith, but she didn't feel like cooperating...of course!
