Today I came up with a simple and hassle free look for the 6th day of my Anti-Me Challenge. I was sooooo comfy in this look, and I think it has subtle details that make the outfit interesting and chic. First off, the lovely pattern on the back of this blouse. Second, the colorful floral purse. And third, I decided to play around with my hair to come up with a new hair-do. This is how it turned out:

I am not entirely convinced with this hair-do, but I think it could be the start of something nice. I like the idea of having the braids wrapped around the bun, but it needs to be neater. Also, I think it would look better with a center part rather than a side part. Well, it was good enough for my first try! I'm sure I'll get it better next time :)

Do you ever just try new hair-dos? What are your recent favs for this summer?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this blue top:

  1. This challenge totally rocks! I don't know if it's just because you're forcing to yourself to wear pants, and it's forcing you to be more creative, but I have seriously been loving all of your outfits this week! You should absolutely wear pants more often! You can't claim that they don't look good on you because they really do!

    I absolutely love this blue top. The detailing is so fantastic! And I think you're new hairstyle turned out pretty well! I like to try doing new things with my hair every once in a while.

    I really love the outfit in the previous post too! The vest and hat look really great!

  2. I love the color of your top and the cute braids! I don't think you should switch your part though - I like it to the side.

    Chic on the Cheap

  4. I disagree with the first lady! I think you look a lot sweeter with skirts and dresses. When i first saw u wearing pants this week, i was like... WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE? then i scrolled down and saw that it was your anti me challange week. You have come up with nice combinations but i really really like you in skirts and dresses (maybe cuz i have large hips and like to hide them under skirts too) hehehehe :)
    As for your hair, i tihnk it's cute! Have a look at this website. THis lady does her daughter's hair everyday and you might be interested in some styles. If only my hair was longer!
    Your blog rocks, Marie. Please wear skirts/dresses soon!

  9. I dig the hair! The sidepart too... especially in the summer heat it stays put and you look like the heat doesn't affect you in the least...

  10. I like the way your hair looks, but I personally prefer the skirts and dresses. It's probably just because I'm used to them, but I just always have such a difficult time wearing jeans/pants :p
    You look great, though!
