Box Braids and Block Heels

Head to Toe: Crop top and slacks, made by mom // Jacket, Buffalo Exchange // Boots, Musse & Cloud // Bag, Vintage // Earrings, Forever 21

I always get a ton of compliments when I wear my hair in these braids, but the truth is, I'm usually rocking them because I haven't washed my hair. And the only reason I do the trendy "box braid" style is because I don't know how to do a regular French braid. (Growing up left handed, I often find myself doing things a little backwards from the way I've been taught.) Still, the braids came in clutch Saturday morning, when I overslept—Saturday, 'nuff said—for a morning show. They delivered, as always, and someone from Tresemm√© even asked if they could take my picture. Who knows if it will actually get used anywhere, but a cool moment nonetheless. But I guess the point of my rant here is returning to my earlier sentiment that we're all just faking it, yanno?
