3 Buns and Blue Beads

This outfit was very 'by-chance' (if you know what I mean). My summer clothes have been lying on my rooms floor in a big pile since a week now (I swear I'm going to put them in my closet this weekend :P) so, when I get ready for school every morning it's a little hard as I can't seem to find anything anymore, I've put away all my winter clothes and the summer clothes aren't very wearable yet. So, this outfit came out from some of my wardrobe staples (I define them as items that stay in my closet all year round, no matter the season) read: basic tank, pastel shirt and my trusty high waist skirt (which I've also worn HERE and HERE).

Pink tank-top: Old Navy, Shirt: H & M, Skirt: Zingrin, pearl detailing ballet flats: bangkok street, blue beads: thrifted (I got them from Janpath {flea market in New Delhi, India} 7-8 years ago for 10 rupees {pats self on back})

Now for the explanation behind today's seemingly funny post title (and those funny blobs of hair peaking out from the sides of my head in the photos above. Am I the only one who noticed them ?). 
I'm sure a lot of you know about the lovely Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo, she has an amazing blog full of inspiration and fun ideas. I recently saw some great Hair Tutorials on her blog (I'm so exited to try all of them in the coming week!). 
The one you see above is the three twisted buns one (it's so simple and takes like 3-4 minutes to put together!) Mine is really untidy and its a sick picture, but it was really awesome in reality :) I got a lot of compliments and it kinda made me feel like a fancy working-gal!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
