Buffalo Print in Check

Hey there fellow Style Lovers! Happy Hump Day to All!!! I feel like it’s been a minute since my last blog post. I sure have missed dishing it up with you. You know, life never ceases to amaze me. Throughout the highs, and the lows, there are certain periods of time when you instinctively know that you are exactly where and what you should be. I am in such a period right now. I feel a level of contentment and fulfillment that is unparalleled to anything tangible, and I must say: it is magnificently wonderful. Now that I’ve bored you to tears with the ins and outs of my innermost feelings, I’ll move along to today’s look!
I find inspiration in just about everything that I lay my eyes on. Today’s combination proves that my new cell phone case is no exception. That’s right, I was inspired by a little ole cell phone case (it's hard to tell, but it has a red and black trim).
I have a thing for mixing up prints (see here and here), which by the way is totally opposite from my husband, whose style preference is classic. I asked him what he thought of this ensemble and his hesitant reply was all that was needed. It confirmed for me that my decision to rock this was totally on point and authentic to me, LOL!
I opted for big hair, or shall I say bigger hair, or even more clearly: I went for full fro mode! LOL! For those who may be curious, this is my natural hair, and here’s the simple process that I follow to comb out my curls:

  • Wash & condition hair
  • Detangle hair and air dry
  • Add a quarter size amount of jojoba oil from roots to ends
  • Comb out hair in medium sections with a large tooth comb
  • Make a small part according to your preference
Xx

    1. Thanks Kishina!!! The dress was made with a white insert which I promptly cut out. It was a toss up of whether to wear it with a black & white stripe top or polka dot blouse; Polka dots won out :))

  5. That dress is amazing! I knew it was vintage as soon as I saw it, but a part of me was hoping it was retail so I could get one. Lol!
