Babajaan Swimwear // Hard Part Braid
With Christmas only 4 days away, that's all I can think about. I chose this bikini specifically to be posted before Christmastime with it's festive red coloring and gold hardware. I'd been following a lot of blogs during NYFW I had seen this amazing braid on a silhouette of smooth, oiled down hair. I hardly wear my hair straight so I knew I had to try it with my soft curls. The braid was very easy to do! But getting prepped in a car with wind coming at you from every direction was not the easy part! In January 2016 I will be posting how-to videos so stay tuned to see how this braid was created!
The Babajaan bikini really stood out to me with it's simplistic shape and pop of color. Gold hardware on anything is my favorite I was immediately attracted to this as well. I paired it with a warm festive sweater from Urban Outfitters. One of my favorite things about this shoot, other than location, was the hat! Process and Content is a wonderful milliner based out of Silver Lake, CA. The hats they make are gorgeous pieces of art and extremely attentive to detail. I was almost too scared to wear it for fear of not doing it justice. There's small details on each hat that differ with each style of hat. There's soft details of colored thread on the brim and a silver emblem on the side. I highly recommend this brand to all looking for a long-term relationship with a hat as they take pride in their work and it shows.
