Hi there dears!
Like I told you in the latest Friday’s Fashion Flashback, I went to a Caro Emerald concert last Friday! Hence the somewhat cryptic title of this post, haha! I had such a blast! Really, evenings never fly by as fast as when I’m at one of her concerts! Obviously, I needed an Emerald proof outfit for the occasion. I hadn’t worn this petrol hat yet, so I decided to create the outfit around this hat. And then the fun part started.
These type of hats sort of demand you to do something with your hair. It just looks a bit strange otherwise. And I’m pretty bad with doing my hair. But I figured that it might work if I braided my hair in a messy way. Then, I pulled the braid a bit to make it a bit more loose. And last, but not least, I flipped the lower part of the braid into the higher part of the braid. I secured this with a bobby pin. And now it sort of looks like I curled my hair! Yay for that! Because I’m horrible at curling my hair, haha! So, if you’re as bad as me at doing your hair, this might work! It only took me a few minutes! What do you think of my hair like this? And how about the outfit?
