A Time And A Place For Everything

Yesterday I was talking about being in a hairstyle rut. I decided I'd try something different today and I wore milkmaid braids.

While teens and young women can get away with wearing messy milkmaid braids just about anywhere, it's not a style I'd feel comfortable with for every day outings.

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.


  1. Very cute, I love it. I was able to do that the last time I had long hair. I actually got a compliment on it too.

  2. I think you look so cute and so adorable in this style. I think because the braids are pinned up, it is a style an adult can wear. It looks as though it speaks to your heritage!


I love hearing from you.
