Shoes: Old {Almost identical for only $32 here, also loving these bow ones!}
Lips: L'Oreal in True Red // Bag: Purchased at market {similar here}

I, like many of you I'm sure, am an avid YouTube tutorial watcher. I'll find some interesting hair video or make up video and instantly get sucked into a cue of about eight more videos. Most of the time, I won't even bother trying to replicate what I've seen, but when I saw this video by one of my favorite bloggers, I thought it looked simple enough. So I gave this "pull through" braid a try! I definitely still have some work to be done as far as practice goes, but I think it looks pretty good for my first time! {Well, by first time, I mean about my fifth try before I finally said, "Good enough, let's go." haha.}

Playing with patterns is one of the easiest ways to explore your style and I think mixing plaid with stripes is a perfect start. It is great for any season, but especially for fall when simple layers are crucial! Don't you agree?

I hope you all had a great weekend!
