Braided

Monday, April 11, 2011



I love braids. I love them for weddings, days at the beach, bars with friends, or Sunday morning breakfasts. Braids are definitely my go-to hair style when I wake up late and don't have time for a curler or flat iron but don't want to look like a complete mess the entire day.

On an unrelated note, my weekend was fabulous. The weather in San Fransisco was beautiful and I and came home from the game with a sunburn! 

How was your weekend?

Love, Julie

So agree braids are lovely, although I can never make it look perfect in my hair! :)

I threw a baby shower (pics to come).

I'm the same way about braids. Totally my go to hair style when I'm short on time, but want to look nice. =)

These are beautiful. I've never had hair long enough to braid, but now I wish I had. :)

My weekend was great! Orlando had a big Turkish Festival and we went to that. Can't wait to get it up on the blog soon!

ooo I just learned how to braid a "fishtail" braid! Next up to learn are the two braids in the upper left corner of your board - those are so gorgeous!

Me too! I added a few mini versions into my updo for my wedding and it made it soooo much more relaxed, cute, unqiue, etc. I'm glad they're coming back.

This weekend we stayed in - lots of spring showers. But it's 80 and beautiful today!!

braids and spring just go together like peanut butter and jelly

Little Lj said...

Definitely a braid fan! My friends can never work out how I can braid my own hair - hours of practice as a teenager!

I LOVE the Alica braid - I'll be attempting that very soon. My hair is ridiculously thick and that just might work! Great roundup!

I love a good braid, and this gorgeous SF weather! Can you believe it? I'm just waiting for a week of rain to make up for our good fortune!

Natasha said...

Sounds like San Fran was lovely! We're not quite at sunburn status but the sun was definitely shining in Montreal :) Love the braids!

CoCo Wray said...

Ditto on the braids, although my hair isn't quite long enough yet..

Missy said...

i love braids so much. I wear one often. my favorite is the side fishtail braid. :)

Alisha said...

These are beautiful, and I love braids too. Too bad I just chopped off 4 inches on saturday. You should do a tutorial on how you fix up your braids. Not sure I really know how to do any of those braids myself.

Happy Monday Julie!!!

i really need to visit SF! we always go to san diego but spend all our time with family, so there's usually no excuse to go sight seeing :/ someday i will! and seriously.. these photos are making me wish i had long hair just so i can do a pretty braid! i do little side ones and tuck behind my ear, but they suck because i have no patience or arm muscles to do a nice french braid. i actually just did my first french braid last week, turned out pretty good. but my arms hurt... i need to work out more. wow, that wasn't rambling at all! lol i think i need to stop reading blogs and eat something...

If i didn't have a huge bald spot on my left temple I'd rock the 2nd photo all day long.

Adrienne said...

Absolute perfection!

So cute, love these!

JessRaquel said...

I love braids, I can only do braided pigtails though. Everything else looks stupid when I try it on myself, I need professional help haha

I can't get enough of this post. I'm LOVING the sophisticated ways people are braiding or incorporating a braid into their hair. So gorgeous!

Bestie said...
