Oh hey there, Wednesday/Friday.
I’m a little excited.
So since you’re probably about to get pimp-slapped with copious amounts of wonderful and delicious Thanksgiving dinners (unless you’re a neighbor up north, and in that case, you already had your tryptophan fun), I decided to not do a recipe post today. Instead, let’s keep things light.
So I started doing this thing with my hair when I don’t feel like blow drying it for 45 minutes, or I am attempting to mask the fact that I haven’t washed it for a few days. And the funny thing is people started complimenting me on it. And in over-sharing-Jess fashion, I explained to them, “Oh, this? Thanks, I just haven’t washed my hair in a couple days!” But after the few pleasant comments, I decided that maybe I should like… actually wear my hair like this sometimes on purpose. So if you’re looking for different and fairly easy new do, I present to you:
The braid bun.
If you can French braid, this take approximately 3 minutes to do.
1. Braid your hair into pigtails.
2. Gather ends of pig tails and tuck them in behind the braided hair near the nape of your neck.
3. Secure with bobby pins.
4. Grab your hairspray and spritz spritz spritz.
See? Easy. And if you can’t french braid, you could still just braid the length of your hair and do the same thing, just without the braids down the side.
On to trend number 2. So I have this urge to wear lots of clothes lately, and all at once. I’m obsessed.
Could there be a more perfect example?
Yes, it’s true, I love layers. Partially because my body temperature is as hot and cold as a middle school romance. Once minute I’m sweating, the next my appendages are numb, it’s maddening. Also, I just think it looks really chic. 2 little suggestions: pair items that compliment each other (don’t force it) and skinny belts around your waist are your best friend.
Also, try to avoid looking like you’re picking a wedgie. That’s totally optional though.
And lastly… non-style related, I am soaking up every last second of the beautiful colors that are spattered along the streets and sidewalks, that make this my absolute favorite season. I literally shudder when I think of snow, and if I could boycott Mother Nature, I would. Fall is one of the things I love most about Pennsylvania.
The second best thing, of course, being that the Office takes place here.
I hope all of you celebrating Thanksgiving have a lovely weekend with your families and lots of unbutton-your-pants-good food. And if not, I promise to eat enough for the both of us. But just because I love you.
