My husband calls these my Princess Leia braids. I call them sensible in the heat we have had lately.
Boston is never just hot, it is sticky and hot. I like heat, but humidity, not so much. The feeling is mutual, as the humidity continually takes out its anger on my hair- reason number 2 to wear braids during a heat wave. So, my hair is up and away and you are spared from any frizzy messes best left off the internet.
Don't ask what possessed me to wear black on such a steamy day, though. Perhaps the braids were too tight at this point?
This is a dress I picked up in France by a brand I am totally unfamiliar with, See U Soon. Anyone heard of this? The dress was so deco-flapper-fabulous (and reasonably priced!) that it immediately jumped into my luggage and made the return trip home. I found the frock at a shop in Avignon called John Mood. They carry quite a few brands that I wish I could find around here, first and foremost Gat Rimon.
This is a simple look, but pretty much all I could muster in the heat.
