striped t-shirt dress

I know, I know, I'm wearing the chambray tied around my waist... Again. But, whatever. I like how it looks. When something works, it works, and if I like it, I will wear it until I get sick of it. I love how this trend from the 90's is back. It may only be for a short while but I will embrace it. And it's totally convenient as well. When I get cold (which is always) I have a something to keep me warm right there waiting for me. 

Anyways, I'm trying to grow my hair out and it is in the very awkward phase. I'm trying to do new things with it so I don't end up getting frustrated and cutting it. This has been one of my go-to looks the past few days. I love braids and this is one way I can incorporate them into my look with shorter hair. 

Do you guys have a favorite hairstyle for shorter hair? Or for the growing out phase? I need some ideas!
