3 Years, 5 Months Loc Journey | Length Check

I took these photos on November seventh for my three years, five months length check.  I’m not really sure how often I will officially measure my hair from now on, especially since it tends to shrink while I’m filming! ;)

In my last post, I shared my locs at three years and three months.  I just colored my hair in June 2015 but I’m already looking forward to coloring it again for my four year loc anniversary in June 2016!  I’m totally excited.  I love how my hair color turned out.  I color it each year, focusing on the newly locked hair from one year to the next.

Filming how I color my hair is still on my to-do list.  I may need some help for that one though.

See you in the next post. ♥

3 Years, 3 Months Loc Journey Update | Length Check

This loc update is long overdue.  I took these photos when my locs were 3 years and 3 months old.  At the time, I was recording length checks for my YouTube channel and a blog post with bonus photos.  My locs grew a lot since my previous update and I wanted to document my progress.  My regimen is still the same and I'm using the same products as well.  I keep styling to a minimum, minus head wraps and occasional semi-protective styles.  Instead of trying to force my hair to hold curly styles, buns, and updos, I've been letting my hair be free.

I'm continuing to embrace how much my hair shrinks.  Free forming keeps my roots loose and free, but also leaves plenty of new growth to shrink to half it's length.  Looking on the bright side, once my hair is tailbone length, it will probably shrink to my lower back. =)  Maybe I won't sit on it as often.  That's definitely a bonus! ♥

See you in my next post! ♥♥♥

Outfit of the Day / OOTD: Cropped Sweater & Cowboy Boots

Happy Monday everyone! ♥

I haven't done an outfit of the day (OOTD) post in a while.  I wore this look on Sunday/yesterday and I received so many compliments on my outfit, especially my boots!  Honestly, I've been eyeing this pair of western boots for months, possibly even a year!  I waited until I found them at a price I found reasonable; you can also find them here.

I absolutely love layering multiple pieces together to mix colors and textures.  The flowy vest fits well on top of my orange cropped sweater.  I layered a black cami (black camisole) underneath for comfort and to conceal my waist.  I'm wearing a pair of mid-rise or regular rise pants.  Opting for high waist pants instead will keep you covered up as well.

I love post earrings!  Most of the time, I wear dangle, drop, and chandelier earrings but to spice things up, I wear stud earrings when I'm in the mood.  I kept my hair simple yesterday.  I wore a woven black headband and a flower.  Sunday was wash day for my hair; maybe I'll style my hair later on this week.  In the meantime, this is one of my most recent semi-protective styles. ♥
