Braided Halo.

Coral Dress, Floral Bib Necklace, Gold Sandals: Forever21.
Coral Floral Earrings: Thrifted.

Hello everyone!
Thank you for the beautiful comments on yesterday's post. I was scared to death you all would think less of me after what I wrote. Usually I'm not scared to post 'personal' things but I was just so hesitant to press the 'publish post' button last night. I never want you all to see me as a bad person, but yet I need to show you all the real side of me, as well. Sometimes that real side isn't always pleasant, but I am just so thankful that you all still accept me for who I am, faults and all. You all are seriously the greatest and I wished that I could have had you with me at lunch today...Had to sit by myself again which totally stunk, but thankfully OGTs are almost over and I can go back to sitting with my regular table of people.

So these pictures were taken yesterday on seriously such a gloriously pleasant day...I wanted to try something different with my hair, so I tried sporting a braided halo, or other wise known as 'heidi braids.' I tried doing them last summer a few times, but for some reason they never turned out right. I was quite pleased with the hairstyle yesterday though and I think I'll be sporting it more often!

Hope you all are doing lovely.
With much love, Lauren.

I love the color of your dress. Very lovely. Sandals are SO much fun! I'm going to have to get some more sometime very soon. I have also been wanting to try the very same hairstyle that you are sporting here, but my hair doesn't create very long braids at all...bummer.

You look so pretty and ready for spring! I was looking at that dress in yellow on forever21.com the other day. I'm hoping they'll have it when I go shopping!

I was just recently thinking about "Heidi" braids-I am just not brave enough to wear them anywhere, but today I wore two braids looped behind which I like (I think of it as like one of Meg from Little Women's hairstyles). Maybe I will be brave enough to wear the "Heidi" style somewhere-I do like it. I have worn a halo style with a narrow rope braid with the rest of my hair down and straightened which I liked although I think I would only wear that to church and not work-its easier (and better) to be brave about some styles at church. Hopefully I will be able to be a little freer and braver in the fall when I hopefully transfer to a university.

This is such a pretty outfit!! I love the way you take pictures of your accessories separately. I love the color of this dress.

Glad you don't have to sit by yourself for much longer! Remember it will all be better after the turning of the tassel. <3
