peachy pleats and topsy tails

1992 called, and it wants its pony back! This was my mom’s go-to hairstyle for me in elementary school, followed closely by the french braid. Of the two, this is the only one I can recreate on my own as a grown-up. Somehow my french braid always comes out crooked and weirdly… inside-out?

Check out Gal Meets Glam’s twisted ponytail post for simple instructions to recreate the throw-back yourself; no informercial “fashion hair tools” required.

I'm a small town girl from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)

  1. The topsy tail! My friends and I used to wear our hair like that for soccer games and tennis meets. Isn’t it funny how the hairstyles from our childhood are slowly coming back? I see kids at school with side ponytails and scrunchies though I’m not embracing those styles myself. Hehe.

  2. I remember doing my hair like that! It may be an older style, but I think it looks gorgeous with your long locks :) Very classic. And I want your dress!

  3. Hahah, I totally did that all the time when I was little! I loved that it looked fancy but was really simple. I would do my American Girl Doll’s hair like that, too! :)

  4. I love your dress! I heart Kohl’s and make as many cross-border trips (from Canada) as possible each year. I’m wearing a very similar outfit to yours today, but with leggings under my dress since the length is questionable for work. Mine is a combo of Target, Old Navy, and Loft with a Kate Spade bag:)
