Ruffles and updos

                                       The longer my hair gets, the more pressured I become to style it.                        Banana Republic button-down shirt (similar) // Dress (50% in stores now)// Shoes // Banana Republic earrings (love these from Givenchy )

Good Morning! I wore this to church yesterday for Palm Sunday. You all know I establised cobalt blue as my color of the year, so I was estatic to find this dress on sale for $30. It was the only size left, and although it is a size 10, I like baggy fits on shift dresses. The ruffle details on this shift dress makesit more stylish and playful. Decided to throw it over a pink button down, and keep the monotone look by opting for my beloved Hangisi pumps.

My hair? Well I was in my girlfriend’s wedding this past weekend and I knew the wash and go look wouldn’t cut it. I decided to try a hair style I first saw on Teyonah Parris. Initially, I used Kanekalon hair for the mohawk, but after the wedding, the hair got frizzy so I decided to redo this updo with my real hair. Didn’t think it was possible but it worked out better than the first try! If you’d like me to make a video on how to do it, let me know!

-God Bless You!

    As always your make-up is flawless. I love the color blue (especially this shade of blue) on you! However, what I love most is your hair in this post. Not sure if you will have the time, but I would love to try this hairstyle for Easter. Please post a video on how you styled your hair. Your personal style journey often helps to keep me on toes and fuels my own style when I’m running low on ideas to keep it fresh.

    Have a blessed day!
