Work half a day + Spent time just sitting around and talking with my boyfriend.

Today I was really in the mood of trying something different with my hair. Sometimes I feel that I wear the same hairstyles over and over again and that it is time for something new! So today I came up with this braided headband idea:

It was very easy! I just made a long braid with hair from the back of each side of my head, then pulled them over my head, and pinned them in place. The trickiest part was to not have crazy hairs flying all over the place... but other than that, it was pretty easy peasy! I will definitely be trying this simple look again.

Have you ever done a hairstyle similar to this one? Do you have a simple hairdo you would like to recommend?

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