How We Wore It | Braided

We are officially 2 for 2 with our 'How We Wore It' posts for 2018 woot woot! Posting on the last day of the month - I'd call it a success. And it's a very special day at that because it's one of my very best friend's birthday and she happens to do this lil How We Wore It Series with me. Happy birthday Jordan!

Jordan is one of the people that I look up to most in this world. She's always so happy and positive and reminds me of sunshine. I think to myself often, "Be more like Jordan!" and I'm not just saying that because it's her birthday, I'm saying it because it's true. I want to be more like her. I hope your birthday is as amazing as you are, Hordy! Love you!

And just a quick trip down memory lane because these pictures are hilarious. I obviously couldn't be taken seriously at any moment during high school lol And it's also proof that Jordan has never had a bad hair/makeup/wardrobe day in her life! If I could have anyone be my personal fashion assistant and tell me what to wear every day, it would be Jordan.
I don't know how I put that velvet jumpsuit on bc if you know me at all, you know I won't even touch velvet. It gives me the shivers even thinking about touching it. But this photo CRACKS ME UP!

This was from one of our basketball tournament trips and I remember thinking that we looked SO GOOD in this picture. 
Hordy and I cheered and danced together in high school. Such good memories!

Now onto our 'How We Wore It' post for today! We're featuring a trend that has really picked up attention in the last 5 years or so, I'd say and that's braids. I really don't remember braids being super trendy growing up or even in college? Maybe I just wasn't with it lol Or maybe it was because it was before IG and Pinterest and I'm not creative enough to come up with some of the amazing things people do with their hair now. Anyway, I'm a fan of braids and I've spent a lot of time practicing and learning how to braid my own and hair and other peoples hair. I'm still not great at it but I think I can hold my own pretty well. 

Not sure why I chose the braids that I did for this post today but we're going with it. I was inspired by my sister's hair in these photos. I actually did her braids for her which I'm quite proud of. Matlin is spunky enough that she can pull this off but I'm not sure I have it in me... I feel like I'm too old now or something lol. 

We had also talked a bit about featuring a 'statement piece' so I through on a statement necklace for good measure. Is that still a thing people are wearing? I don't even know but it's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry I own! I love how it always dresses up any outfit and I feel a bit fancier wearing these jewels!

Be sure to check out my lovely friends! You don't want to miss how they wore their braids! <3
