Yesterday I was talking about being in a hairstyle rut. I decided I'd try something different today and I wore milkmaid braids.
For me, it's something that I could wear around the house or to go for a walk, or perhaps during a day at the beach.
It's an easy style to put together. I just made double braids and pinned them up with regular bobby pins. At my length a few stray ends are inevitable, but I prefer milkmaid braids to look sort of thrown together. If they're too perfect, it looks a bit contrived.
In any case, it was fun to change it up a little. It did break the rut.
