Transitioning from Summer to Fall: Styling Tips

Hey guys!  Fall is right around the corner and one of the things I look forward to is dressing for the changing weather.  Transitioning your clothes and shoes from summer clothing to fall clothing can be a fun experience if you allow it to be.

The main piece in my outfit idea is a v-neck camisole.  I paired different shoes, purses/bags, bottoms, and cardigans with each look.

#0074 Summer to Fall Transition: V-Neck Cami

I focused on the following things when choosing pieces for these looks by replacing:

♥  Flat sandals with peep toe booties.
♥  Light wash denim shorts with a dark wash fitted mid-length denim skirt.
♥  A black purse with a dark green leather tote.
♥  A lightweight stone colored cardigan with a warm Aztec print drape cardigan.

Swapping out the summer pieces with fall pieces completely transforms the look of the v-neck camisole.

What are some of your favorite fall pieces that you can't wait to wear?  Let me know! ♥

3 Years, 3 Months Length Check: Loc Journey Update

In my most recent post about my locs, I shared about my new loc anniversary hair color.  After a much needed break, here's my most recent length check!  I still can't believe my locs are 3 years old now.  {{The reason I've been gone :-( I'm learning to better manage it though.}}

Funny thing is, my hair shrinks while I'm filming videos and taking photos.  In these photos, my hair shrinks almost a half inch!  Once my hair is fully dry, my locs shrink anywhere from a half inch to an inch.  Most of it is due to my new growth (being that I do not retwist/interlock) and the rest is simply because my hair shrinks! =) I'm learning to appreciate this fact more and more over time.  Once my hair is tailbone length, my locs will probably still shrink, giving me room to grow my hair even longer. :)  Learning to love your natural hair is truly a journey. ♥

See you in my next post!

Cosmic Night Sky Manicure ♥ NOTD (Nails of the Day)

I haven't polished my nails in so long!  Well, with color that is.  Instead, I was focusing on growing my nails out after breaking two of them (including one nail who's nail polish decided to chip).  Other than that, my manicure is lasting well and I'm hoping it will make it through my next wash day for my hair.

This manicure was easy to do since I began with a black glitter nail polish as the base.  Usually, I combine layers of different glitter polishes to create a similar effect.  Below is a list of the products I used.

Base Coat:  Salon Sciences Instant Artificials Protect [1 coat]

1st Polish:  Pure Ice, 1014 Private Show [2 coats]

2nd Polish:  Wet n Wild Fast Dry, glitter polish name not listed on bottle [1 coat]

Top Coat:  OPI Matte Top Coat, 4338011 [1 coat]

Once seeing my manicure in motion, I chose a name for my nails this week:  Cosmic Night Sky.

Thanks for reading and watching!  See you in my next post. ♥

Casual OOTD Jewelry: Tribal Earrings (Video)

Tribal Earrings

Statement pieces are a big part of casual outfits for me.  In this outfit, I wore a new pair of dangle earrings to add something interesting to my look.

In the outfit below, I chose a gold necklace as the statement piece.  Whenever the outfit itself is low-key, I add something that will stand out from the outfit as a whole.

Tribal Earrings

One of my favorite accessories is earrings!  I often use them as a statement piece.  Within the past few months, I've added more earrings to my ever growing collection.  I kept my outfit simple but added flare with my jewelry and accessories.

This pair of tribal earrings added flare and interest to my look.  I paired them with miniature post earrings of various colors (my go to when I want something simple for the other piercings in my ears).  I can't wait to share more of my new jewelry!  See you in my next post. ♥

Cute & Sporty OOTD

This Outfit of the Day unintentionally matches my blog. :)

When I have a lot of errands to run, I tend to lean towards a comfortable pair of pants, casual shoes, and a graphic t-shirt.  In this outfit, I wore one of my favorite pair of athletic sneakers and a MGM Grand tee that is a gift from my mom.  I pulled my hair back off my face and I was ready to go!

See you in my next post! ♥
