i source the majority of my images from we heart it, a beautiful website which is filled with the most perfect photos of everything you could possibly think of. i could (and have) spent hours trawling through the images, and lately, it's been killing me seeing all the gorgeousness of summer embodied in these photos, from the northern hemisphere's summer climate at the moment. one of the trends i've been noticing are the popularity of braids. all types and styles and all equally unique, and a great twist on the indie, hippie style that i truly love about summer. so with wishful thinking and while i'm mourning summer, it's inspired me to try and master a fishtail braid on my hair tomorrow morning!
