I've tried braiding my hair a few ways recently, in an attempt to do something different with my hair since I always wear it either down or in a ponytail. My hair doesn't like to stay in braids very well though, which doesn't help! But it does feel good to get my hair off my face and neck a bit on those hot days, and mix things up with a new 'do. 

A side braid was the perfect finishing touch to this maxi skirt and tube top combo and emphasizes the bohemian vibe of the flowy skirt and lace. The top, white crochet lace layered over a teal-green background, is such a cute summery piece that I look forward to wearing every year. The pattern in the lace always reminds me of pineapples, even though it is actually a floral, but I like the idea of something tropical in the summer. 
A pathway through the trees seemed like a suitable backdrop for this free-spirited, hot-weather ensemble. 

Top: Urban Outfitters (option, option). Skirt: Francesca's (similar). Clutch: Spool no.72 (white available at Ruche). Sandals: Splendid. Initial necklace: Kate Spade. Bracelets: Alex & Ani, Kate Spade and imitation Chan Luu (local find).

xoxo, CC
