I chopped my hair about six months ago and although I loooooved the change, I was pretty bummed that I couldn't really braid my hair anymore. I mean, I could technically braid it, but there would be chunks of hair sticking out everywhere and it was just not a good look. As the months flew by and my hair grew out (my mane apparently has magical growing powers, btw), I kind of forgot about my braiding woes till the other day when I took these pictures. I wanted a different hairstyle than just down or up so I thought heyyyy, why not try out a braid? To my sweet surprise, a decent braid appeared! It was a pretty special moment for me because I hadn't had a braid in my hair for what seemed like a loooong time so it was like seeing a long lost friend again.

Also, I just realized you read an entire paragraph about a braid in my hair.
I am so vain.

On a more relative note, I'm obsessed with this Knit Top and Print Scarf from Pink Blush that I'm wearing today! I love how the top has that open knit sweater look for Fall, but it's short-sleeved so you can wear it on those days that are a little warmer. The scarf is also light and fun, which is perfect to complete the outfit.

I'm so excited for Halloween tomorrow!
Every year when Halloween rolls around I watch me and my mom's favorite episode of Spongebob Squarepants (yes, my mom watches SS. she's a cool mom).
If anyone can guess what episode I'm talking about from the gif below, you will be on my cool list:
Gentri, this one is for youuuu!!!
