Ever since I saw the perpetually stylish Andi B. Good sporting braided pigtails this past March (with a super cute hair bow and a fantastic vintage plaid dress), I've been enamoured with this look, and now wear my hair this way at least once a week.
As my locks are ultra fine and straight as a rod, I need some body and texture to be able to create braids (that have even a snowball's chance of not quickly falling apart in a mess of random sections), so I usually wear my hair this way a day or two after I've done a cold (rag, pin curl, etc) or hot (hot rollers) set. Once the best of the girl has diminished, but my hair still looks clean and has plenty of body to it.
Given how often I've been wearing my hair like this as of late, I'm surprised it took as long as it did to capture me on film with braided pigtails. No matter though, I'm delighted that it finally happened - and on the picturesquely gorgeous Penticton Pier to boot.
This pier (know officially as the Kiwanis Walking Pier) is a beloved local spot, where one is as likely to encounter people dangling a fishing rod off the side as you are to see newly married couples posing for their wedding pictures.
Though as dusk began to sunk in, it wasn't particularly warm on the day these images were captured (theme of the season, let me tell you!), the sunlight was sublime. Soft, creamy and tinged with shimmering bands of buttercup yellow and dusty blue, that jived well with my Freddies jeans and girly carnation pink top.
