Hairy Troubles




Top: J. Crew Factory, Skirt: F21, Belt: J. Crew, Shoes: Payless 

The title of this post made you a little nervous didn't it? You were thinking, "Oh no. I really don't want to know how long it's been since you last shaved your legs, or whatever other problems you have with hair." Well, don't worry guys, I won't get that unpleasantly personal. 
I have a complicated relationship with Pinterest. I see all of these amazing hairdos and they even come with step by step instructions, so I think, "I can do that!" Wrongo. I've spent hours, suffered tired arms, and defeating discouragement. Maybe I'm just uncoordinated when it comes to that ambiguous area behind my own head. However, after cracking my knuckles, and licking my lips in sheer determination, I have conquered my hair sorrows! This 'do may look simple, but I pat myself on the back for this one folks. Just you wait, I might even sport a waterfall braid soon....Whoa, I better not get ahead of myself. Let's be realistic here.

    1. I haven't really gone full force into the Pinterest world but I know what you mean. But -- my hopeful new friend -- I'll do a post of the ponytail if you want. LOL I know you can do it and soooo much more.
      I think Megan's looks SUPER CUTE and a center part will be huge this summer.
