Anyone Can Wear a Side Braid Like This!



Hi everyone!
Well, I have been waiting patiently since early Winter to wear this thrifted H&M dress. So Boho, So Springy, So Me! I almost passed it by, as it was a small size, but NEVER do that! I tried it on, and though it could be bigger on the top, it still works. I just keep the buttons open - almost as if I did it on purpose ;) I see it with boots, tights, a funky hat. However (as most of my posts go), today I also wanted to also share a new way to wear a scarf. Another two-fer...
I thought I saw this on the site Playing with Scarves, but I don't think so...
Anyway, it's so simple to make a faux braid with a scarf. I just wrapped the scarf with the bulk to one side, tied a knot, added a hair tie to the top, (matching preferred). I then wrapped it tightly, and tied matching ponytail tie to end to secure it. I also added a fancy tie to the top for a little bling. I used a scarf with fringe to look a bit like hair on the end. Next time, I am going to do it the 'over-under' wrap way instead of a simple twist. I believe it will hold tighter.
Give it a try, I think you'll really like it!
Yes, the dress is still awesome...

What a fantastic idea! I have to wear a hat or a scarf or something to keep my hair up as I work around food. Its nice to get a fresh idea and I think this would look fab with my dreads! Almost like a faux dread. AND rock those legs girlfriend!!!! You look fantastic!

Don't you dare encourage me to buy things too small LOLZZZZ I have a problem doing that for some reason and then I can never squeeze into it!
At least it worked out brilliant for you!

Great braid idea. I can't wait until it's warm enough to dress like that every day!

Hello, my muse!

I used to do that when I was a kid and wanted long flowing locks. My head gear was MUCH less elegant -- I used one of my sister's [clean] cloth diapers. Your solution would be MUCH more acceptable in public!

Love this dress -- it was a hoot to draw!
