Fashion Friday #14 + a Rope Twist Hairstyle

Since I was given my Canon Rebel T1i for my birthday in November, I've loved trying to learn new things on it.  So I took my parents down to the railroad tracks in front of our house for a little photo shoot.  Then my dad took pictures of me for Fashion Friday!  Here's my favorite from the photos I snapped of them.  Aren't they cute?

{Yes, Shasta stuck her tongue out for the picture...}

This week's outfit is one I received for Christmas.  My favorite part must be the cowgirl boots, though! 

{Had to try on my new hat, too (: }

{Whoever did the graffiti on the freeway wall this week, we thank you.  It made for a great back drop. This is the one time we liked your illegal behavior}

Dark Skinny Jeans: Vigoss
Pink Top: B.P. Nordstrom
White Sweater: Forever 21
Boots: Nordstrom
Hat: Macy's

For the hair portion of the post, I'm showing you how to do a simple twist to the side of your hair.  It ends up looking like a rope in the end.  I do it a lot to keep my hair out of my face.
{I hope you enjoy hearing me say "our" hair, "our"head etc...not sure why I said that! I was doing MY hair!}

{If you try any of the styles I show on here, please send me pictures and I will feature them on my blog once I get a few people to submit!}

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!  What are your plans?  Doing anything fun for New Years Eve? This is my last weekend home, as I leave for Seattle on Monday.  Such a wonderful break! 

Happy New Year to all of my lovely readers {commenters and silent followers, too!}, friends, and family!  I appreciate all of you for the encouragement, inspiration and gift of friendship you've given me. Can't wait to see what 2011 has in store!
