In an effort to actually make it through this year’s spring to-do list, I decided to start working on checking another item off the list. One of my goals was to become more of a hair and beauty aficionado, so starting with the less intimidating of those two, I decided to give some new hairstyles a whirl.
My hair style for the last few years has remained basically the same – down and curly. With the help of Instagram, Pinterest, and blog tutorials (particularly the Barefoot Blonde), I’ve been able to start venturing out. A basic braid has definitely stood out to me as a clear front runner of favorite styles. They aren’t fussy, are pretty easy to do, and adds a touch of little school-girl innocence to your look.
Another perk of braided hair? I get to actually show-off earrings that I’m wearing. They tend to get lost and buried in all of my hair. I’ve been obsessed with these earrings from Rocksbox ever since I got them in the mail, and couldn’t wait to make them the star feature of my look.
P.S. If you haven’t heard of Rocksbox, go look into it! It’s a subscription service that lets you borrow designer jewelry for as long as you like, and trade it out for new pieces as often as you like! For a free month of service, use the promo code ‘maverrillixoxo‘ at checkout.
