Blue and White Striped Top Black American Apparel Tights White Shoes

Top – Gift, Leggings – American Apparel
Shoes – Buffalo Exchange, Earrings – Clark Park Flea Market

This striped top was yet another Christmas gift, but I wasn’t sure how to wear it at first. Black leggings were a simple, easy approach, and super comfy too. I found these white ballet flats at Buffalo Exchange, and wear them to death when it’s warm enough to go sockless (which I wish was more consistent right now!).

natural hair braid out updo

My hair is finally getting long enough to wear updos. I love neat, no-hair-out-of-place updos, but mine are usually pretty organic. I two strand twisted my hair while damp, allowed to dry then took the twists out to create the waves, then pinned tucked and clipped to hold the back in place. A silk or satin scarf worn at night will keep the look fresh for a few days.
