OOTD: Spring Monochrome

summer whites 4

I thought this fabulous Mohair Coat was my best vintage find ever….Until I stumbled upon this Levi’s Denim Jacket at Harper & Lewis Vintage boutique in the Bullring. I love denim so much and the cut of this was 100% DOPE. I had to have it. Plus it was on the sale rack (for Β£30). WHOOOOOOPWHOOOOOP. I literally danced out of there.

It is so stylish and warm enough to be warn through out the year. It will be the object of my affection this summer.

I’ve just been too lazy lately to be even bother with twists out on my hair (my go to style), so I combed out my hair with a bit LOT of Fushi’s Virgin Coconut Oil and I was good to go. I won’t even bother styling my hair any more because this ‘fro IS life. I took it work for the first time and my colleagues were all like, ‘OOOHH, someone’s got their hair DID today.’ And I was like actually today I did NOTHING. #NaturalCrownAlert. OOP.

The thing with kinky hair is, it is a struggle to comb! I pulled and strained about 5000 facial muscles during this comb out😦

It was tough.

There was a lot of loss (of hair), patience (by me), kindness (to my edges) and tears.Β 

But I came through.

Hahahahaha. I get way too carried away with silly things. Like hair monologues.

Have a fantastic weekend you guys.Β

OOTD Rant: Where Do You Take Your Pictures?

PINK DRESS 6

 

This Outfit Of The Day comes with a question for all fashion bloggers (#Fbloggers) and style bloggers that surf these parts of the interwebs…

Where do you take your pictures?

Sometimes, a blogger will tweet something like “Scouting for outfit locations,” and I’d go, I must be the laziest blogger around. The only time I shoot in a nice location is if I’m on holiday. I have never gone out of my way to seek out locations to experiment with.Β 

I mean I want to. Continue reading “OOTD Rant: Where Do You Take Your Pictures?”
