heidi braids

And Galaxy Shoes too!

Remember when I said that Barnaby was an incredible location scout? I wasn’t lying! He found this beautiful bridge while I was at work last week, and finally today I saw it for myself! The suit I was wearing is Italian, and faux leather. I thrifted it almost a year ago, with my last fifty dollars. I remember thinking at the time that I just couldn’t leave it behind, it was too good! Phew, good decision, past Jo – I wear it all the time, especially the shorts. My ‘galaxy’ shoes (as I like to call them!) were bought about a month ago, and in the last few weeks I have been coating them in glitter. My hair was plaited into Heidi braids, and the blouse I was wearing is another vintage piece. The doctor bag (ol’ reliable!) is by Golden Ponies.

I’ve had numerous emails lately asking about how to do Heidi braids. Heidi braids are quite possibly the easiest hairstyle ever, so I thought I’d repost my video tutorial from a while back. It clearly shows the steps, so you’ll be able to do your own Heidi braids in no time!

  3. Such a lovely spot, and the outfit is lovely! I have attempted Heidi braids before, but I’m just terrible at all hair and plait related things so it’s not much of a suprise that I never actuall finished going around the whole head due to pure awfulness!

  4. Wow! this location is breathtaking! I love that third photo with all the trees around you on the bridge. And that suit is quite a thrifting find, I love how you’ve paired it with that gorgeous blouse! Such pretty colours.

  13. Gorgeous pictures! I’m a bit disappointed that this braiding trend comes right after I got a pixie cut! I’m a bit jealous of everyone sporting this trend! You look fabulous!
