A Week of Serving Looks (I Wore a New Purchase Each Day)

The week before last was a good week. My hairstyles were on point everyday, I actually put thought into my outfits consistently, and I got to sport a new find each day from shopping the weekend prior. Let’s see the lewks…

Day 1 // All in One Piece

Kay, so first the hair. Literally every time I do it it comes out different than the last. So it’s always a surprise to me when I undo the twists or braids from the night before. I also use different products sometimes. I found one that makes my hair super soft, light, and fluffy. I love how full this came out looking while still retaining a coil.

I finally found a pair of overalls that work for me! Hallelujah. It’s only been two years (despite my love of dramatizing everything, I am being so serious. It’s been 2 years). Funnily enough, I found these in Forever21. A place I no longer shop at, but happened to be in there shopping for a client I styled. I love that these have a zipper so it’s easy to get in and out of.

Day 2 // After School Playdate

This used to be my favorite hairstyle when I was a little girl. Now that I am natural again, and my hair has grown substantially, I can rock it! The puffs and the dinosaurs make it perfect for a playdate. Haha.

I love how cheeky this top from H&M is, and I haven’t worn it in a while so I decided to bring it back out. I paired it with this black sheer top from H&M. I am excited to style it in different ways, there’s a lot I could’ve chosen to wear underneath. The dino tee kept it fun, but I may try a bralette one day for a more adult look.

Day 3 // Summer White

This was my first time situating my hair in braids so that when I undid them my hair would fall in front of my forehead like bangs. I love the look! Hopefully I can remember how I did it so I can achieve it again. It was kind of an accident. I complemented the “do” with a new makeup look. I typically do my makeup like you see it in the first outfit, but I pulled out my eyeshadow kit and selected this pink which really paired well with my lipstick. I felt super pretty that day.

In the summer the less I have to think about what I am going to wear, the better. Since it’s too hot to really experiment with layering, I prefer to keep it easy. This dress required zero effort, but was the outfit I was most complimented on out of the five. I think the white worked really well with my skin tone and made my melanin pop!

Day 4 // 99cent Jeans

I like to wear a headwrap at least once a week. It either serves to add color to my outfit (which was the case here) or to cover a bad hair day. I did the bare minimum for my makeup which is just a swipe of mascara and a little bit of a brow fill.

So I found these pink pants at a thrift store, tried them on, and immediately noticed I could barely breathe. I bought them anyway. THEY WERE 99cents, how could I not? The waist has a little bit of elasticity in it, so I figured I’d magically adjust. When I sat down at my desk at work, I began to regret my life choices. I actually had to unbutton the jeans. I just couldn’t do it. The pink is so cute though, right? Lol.

  • The Tee (Nordstrom Rack)
  • The Jeans (St. Vincent De Paul)
  • Shoes (Nine West)

Day 5 // Bermudas Are Back

Pulled my hair back in a high puff this day. When I asked my hairdresser for an alternative to the black fabric covered elastic bands that I typically use to pull up my hair (they cause breakage along the hairline), she suggested cutting a piece of hosiery and using that instead. So that’s what I’ve been doing as of late.

With these shorts I have the opposite problem that I did with the pink jeans: the waist is too big. I tried them on prior to buying, noticed it then, and decided since it’s a “boyfriend” fit maybe I’ll just let it pass. Plus they were on sale for $9.99! Dang those sales. I can’t resist. Anywho, the length on these bad boys is what really drew me in. I wanted to make it less boyish with one of my favorite tops and a pair of heels.
