To this day I cannot for the life of me do a fishtail braid. Maybe it’s due to the fact that my hair has always had some amount of layers and is never long enough to look good. Therefore, for now I will continue to grow out my hair until I can’t stand it anymore and envy those lucky enough to wear long braids and buns on top of their heads. This week’s Fashionista looked très chic in her fishtail braid. Her Pashmina scarf added colorful interest to her dark blue shirt. I also loved her nude flats which kept the look casually simple and stood out among the colors of her outfit.
