Made By Dawn // Fishtail Crown Braids

Made By Dawn // Fishtail Crown Braids

One of the most magical things happened while shooting this series, we came across these beautiful flowers while were driving through La Conchita. Fortunately for me they perfectly matched the strapy details on this gorgeous Made By Dawn swimsuit. The location to this series was ironically shot only a couple yards away from Made By Dawn's owners home. As Morgan and I explored the location with this shoot we decided to hop a fence to see what was behind us. What we saw was truly beautiful. We were walking in what we thought was an empty field until we came across trees covered in hundreds of Monarch butterflies. And when I say hundreds of butterflies, I mean hundreds! Capturing these gorgeous creatures on film was no easy task but Morgan created a beautiful video of what we saw. Log on to @braidsandbikinis instagram to see the video! 

This suit was made perfectly for my body type. I have the longest torso and it's extremely hard to find flattering cuts that don't make me feel too revealed. Made by Dawn is one of my favorite swim lines currently and I don't think I'll change my opinion any time soon. The material this bikini is made of is luxurious in texture and shape and I highly recommend Made by Dawn to any adventurous, shell-picking ladies. 

For the braids I did dutch fishtail braids that I used Unite expanda dust as a volumizer to pull them apart. In the ends of my hair I used Unite Texturiza spray to soften and pull apart my curls! In the back I used gold bobby pins from Shop Bando to connect the two braids together. Tutorial videos coming soon!
