yesterday was one of those perfect fall days in san francisco. a rainy morning followed by the clouds parting and cool, crisp air. it was finally that time of year to put on a jacket before heading out for a walk. i wanted to wear something simple, comfortable and warm, so i made things interesting by doing the milkmaid (aka heidi) braid. to add a twist, i did fishtail braids instead of conventional english braids. i would have liked to stretch and tease them all to hell, but my hair is too short. you need extensions and thin hair to accomplish that. i have neither.
