Who else besides me is a little discombobulated by being off on a Wednesday? I mean really, a holiday in the middle of the week, Really! In my humble opinion, holidays should always fall on a Friday or Monday? Middle of the week or not, I took advantage of my time off by doing nothing. I left the house once to go to the store for food, other than that I had no intention of stepping a foot outside. Not even to watch the neighborhood fireworks. I guess I really am getting older. But baaa-bbyyy, next week is what I'm most excited about. Hubs, his mini-me and I, along with my brother and his fam will be in Orlando and I am so ready. I got my summer body together (not really, but pretend I do) and I'm ready to hit the pool and the beach (and maybe a thrift store or a mall)
Let's face it, bad hair days are inevitable. No matter if you're black or white or yellow or polka dot, if you have hair, chances are you've had a bad hair day (days rather). My first two years of being back natural was a bad hair day. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing or what to do. I even remember coming home after doing the big chop, walking in the door and the first thing my husband says (after looking at me like a strange alien) is "You're hair is ugly". Man!!! That's when that for better or worst part comes in to play. And it's a good thing I have tough skin.
Now-a-days most people wear head wraps for style purposes, yet wearing a head wrap could hold a deeper meaning for someone else. Today's purpose is attributed to still looking fab when you're having a bad hair day. I typically don't cover my head, because I have a love affair with my hair cut and color, but there are days when me and my hair are at odds. That's when a cute decorative head wrap saves the day.
I copped this vibrant head wrap at THRIFTING ATLANTA'S Spring Market from BLACK GIRL TIARA'S. Since I'm not really into the African or Ankara print trend, I almost didn't buy it. Aside from being slightly talked into getting it, it was the mixture of bold colors that did it for me. I've worn this wrap a few other times (bad hair day's of course) and each time I love it more and more.
My top is brought to you by good ole GOODWILL. A few weeks ago I attended a shopping event at the Tucker, GA location and found this orange top. On the hanger it looked way to big, but a quick try on, made me realize I'm bigger than what I think I am - how sway? The best part about this top is that it hides my mom gut and surprisingly, I like the high-low hem. Peaking out from underneath the top are a pair of distressed shorts (which have been in heavy rotation this spring/summer season). Pairing these cobalt blue wedge sandals and marigold crossbody (both from SHOEDAZZLE) with this look was a fun way to play with the other colors in my head wrap.
Warning! The top and shorts are thrifted and the sandals and handbag are from a couple of season's ago. Meaning this entire look is not available for purchase. But good news is you can use this look for style inspiration. So if you come across an over sized top and distressed jean shorts, you can definitely recreate this look. Don't forget to head over to BLACK GIRL TIARA'S to grab your own unique head wrap.
