Auqua Swimwear // Milkmaid Braids

Auqua Swimwear // Milkmaid Braids

One word that trumps all with this suit; REVERSIBLE! Two swimsuits in one, can I get an AMEN? Auqua Swimwear is a brand based in my favorite swimwear capitol of the world, Australia! Braids & Bikinis featured another one of their suits in May that had a fun exotic plant print that is reversible as well. One thing I really love about their suits that while they're reversible they don't have that extra material that awkwardly hangs out either side you're wearing because the suits weren't perfectly sewn to each other! This suit has the same feature as the bikini with the awesome slit over the shoulder, plus is makes my rear look like I've done a million squats (trust me I haven't) 

The Milkmaid Braids! I'll be honest when I was doing my hair for this shoot, I tried at least 3 different braids, I was really struggling. But I'm super happy with how these milkmaid braids photographed, all thanks to Morgan!

Milkmaid braids are easy to do if you know my trick! If you're tried to do them I'm sure you've noticed that they cause a ripple or a lot of gap when you try to fold them up over your hair where you originally started the braid. My advice is easy, start your braid by lifting your hands and braiding out! Naturally our body wants you to braid your hair down because it's easier on our arms and hands. But by lifting your hands/arms/braid up it'll help for that fold-over to be seamless!
