Summer Braids!

July 22, 2014

Hi dolls!

One of my favorite things about being a girl is playing dress up and experimenting with hair/makeup. Is there anything better!? Ever since I was little long hair has been my obsession. I used to have the longest hair when I was down past my waist & I didn't get my first hair cut until I was in 3rd grade! Maybe my love for long hair ties into my life-long love for Disney princesses too. I mean those princesses have the most gorgeous, long hair! While I like to keep my hair as long as possible I obviously get it trimmed to keep the split ends away and honestly sometimes it just doesn't seem to grow haha. So, to add volume and length to your hair in this modern day age, there are clip in hair extensions, my new best friend! 

Bellami makes some awesome extensions with 100% real human hair (you will see them on some of my favorite fashion bloggers like Cara Loren and A Spoonful of Style. After watching the video I linked for Cara Loren, I ordered myself some!). I have the longest ones available, the Bellissima 220g 22" (check them out HERE). It comes with 10 pieces total and it is SERIOUSLY a must-have for anyone who needs some natural looking length added to their hair! So today I wanted to share with you a look for a casual summer night with a super fun braid. The great thing about the Bellami extensions is that you don't have to use all 10 pieces to achieve the look you want. It's so fun to experiment with different pieces! So with the look below, I used only 2 pieces from my set. I paired my braid with a fun print blouse I bought at T.J. Maxx earlier this summer and my favorite Marc Nelson Denim jeans!

  1. The braids are so adorable! I've always been very experimental with my hair. Right now it's short, and I must say I don't crave long hair anymore since I've cut it. But long hair looks great on you, dear :)
    Pretty outfit! Love you top :)
