Piece of the Week: Black Floral Two-Piece

This is one of my to-go outfits during the summer. It makes being chic really easy and fast in the morning. This two-piece can triple as a dress, a crop top, or a skirt depending on the mood of the beholder. When I really I can’t decide what to wear, I grab this pre-made outfit and I am out the door. I’ve had this two-piece for about a year now and it was honestly a great buy. I wear it pretty often and I’m always getting complimented on the pattern.

Pink Maxi Skirt & a Leather Jean Jacket

This is just one of those looks that is so simple, yet just looks stunning.This look is one of my favorites and works for nearly any occasion. I love a good maxi skirt and a good jacket. My closet has a good amount of different maxi skirts; I honestly have five different black ones. Wearing a moto-styled jacket is one of my signatures.  The real focus of this look is the maxi skirt, which makes a rather plain outfit into something better.

Jamaican Bounce Crochet Braids

img_4039img_4048I installed these myself, after my aunt braided my hair into a crochet pattern. It took my about three hours give or take. I love the outcome of the it and it was my first time crocheting my hair on my own.

After two weeks, the curls became matted in the back. As soon as I separated them and cut some stray strands it was as giid as new. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this hair and I truly do love it. I’m thinking of making this my go-to signature hair style.

Life Journal 5/12/17

Two weekends ago, I went on my band trip to Norfolk, Virginia. It wasn’t the best band trip, but it was still fun. We stopped in Baltimore along the way. There was some singing, dancing, and hotel shenanigans. We went to alot of museums and got matching shirts. We came in either first or second place in all of the categories we were in. We had some amazing late night talks and didn’t worry about school at all. And you can’t forget all of the Snapchat vlogs. Marching band and I have a love-hate relationship, but I love it more than I hate it.

Piece of the Week: Burgundy Skirt

I’ve had this burgundy skirt for awhile. My mom got it for me at JCPenney’s I believe. I love the pleats in this skirt and the lace material it’s made out of.  I wore this to church by pairing it with a black turtleneck and my black moto jacket. I was looking for a classy appearance, but you can dress it up for a party with a crop top and a statement piece. I love the appeal that this skirt has and the ability it has to give me a mature look.

Styling a Statement Coat

If you’re going to be rocking a statement coat, then the only thing that should stand out is your coat. I went for an all black look underneath my coat to ensure that my coat can pop out. This is honestly one of my favorite coats, it used to belong to my mom. I only wear this when I feel like being a little fancier than my usual wear. I just love the way it draws eyes, yet looks so casual at the same time.

Embracing Curly Hair

I love my curly hair and wouldn’t have it any other way. When I was younger, I used to struggle with loving my hair. I hated it and wanted it to be straight and easier to manage. It’s been a struggle and took some fustrated moments, before I felt like I could embrace my curly hair. With kinky curly hair, it’s hard to get your hair healthy enough to grow and show length. It took me about three years for me to get my hair this healthy and as long as it is now. Now, I can honestly say that I love my curly hair.
