This is my favorite time of the year. I wholeheartedly enjoy listening to Christmas songs in the car and seeing pretty lights everywhere in the city. I really enjoy all the awesome sales too! But most importantly, I use this time of the year to reflect, show gratitude to loved ones, celebrate life, and prepare for next year’s goals.
Around this time, every year, without failure, I have a mental hair breakdown. I’d have so many birthday hair style ideas, but I always seem to be left disappointed in the end…
That’s why I decided to do test crochet braids earlier this month. Long story short: failed.
I was left with this fro on my head; which literally only comes out to play on the weekends. During the week, its wash and go! Believe it or not, I achieved this look using the african threading technique. YouTube it.
Sequins are always a good idea for this time of the year. These joggers were a recent purchase from Forever 21. I decided to go for a semi-androgynous look by pairing it with a modern-style tuxedo button down and a tuxedo vest. I thought about wearing my Tory Burch sequined pumps [side note: I came a mighty long way, huh?], but last minute opted for these Giuseppe’s- which btw are back in stores!
