Heidi

Today I plaited my hair up into Heidi braids in preparation of a park visit. As per usual, I chose to go bare legged – it really was cold, I swear! We braved the chilly weather and spent our time doing one of my favourite activies; watching ducks! I sure feel grateful that I date someone who appreciates ducks as much as I do! They are just so fun watch – and I have been known to do so for hours!

I wore a vintage thistle print jersey over a dotted ASOS button-up playsuit. The brooch I am wearing was courtesy of the wonderful (and oh-so talented!) Jacqueline. It brought the perfect pop of colour to my flesh toned outfit. I am now investigating how to get it to stay in my hair – hint: many bobby pins!

  1. The jersey, and pattern of the play suit are so pretty! I love heide braids, oh and I too went for a walk today, but unlike yours, it was so pleasant and warm!

    I also enjoy ducks, there is a river just outside our flat, I use to there and feed the ducks and swans. Got to love nature!

    Watching ducks is fun! They’re so cute. We used to see lots of duck families walking past in our old house because it was next to a park :)

  22. Heidi braids are one of my favorite hair styles! Even with my silly fine hair I can do it and I always feel so cute when I do. They look lovely on you, and I love love love the little peeks of polka dots in your outfit! Thanks for stopping by my little blog, and for your sweet words.

  30. These pictures are beautiful and serene. The thought of watching ducks gently gliding around the water for hours sounds so relaxing (and like something I’d love to do!). Your outfit is adorable, and I really love your braids and brooch (I’m heading over to check out Jacqueline’s shop right now!).

    i love putting up my hair like that but since i have fine hair i have to use like 2000 bobby pins to make it stay in place. :)
    hope you are having an amazing weekend love.
