New Year's Eve Party Looks: Day to Night

It's almost 2017!  To celebrate the upcoming new year, I created two (2) New Year's Eve party outfit ideas.  This first outfit is a daytime look and the second outfit is a night look.  I love wearing pants that make a statement, so a metallic gold pair of pants was perfect, paired with a funky white top and navy blue boots with buckle details.

Chicago Bulls 23 Sweatshirt & Wedge Sneakers | Casual Fall OOTD

Since the Chicago Bulls have an away game today...

Before it suddenly got cold, I wore one of my favorite Christmas gifts from last year:  my "Street Bulls" sweatshirt!  It is very comfortable and warm, paired with a faux leather jacket and it kept me in a great mood while running errands.  I like to pair skinny jeans with wedge shoes in general, but my favorite has to be wedge high top sneakers.  I really need to add more pairs to my shoe collection very soon!

I wore my usual assortment of rings on almost every finger and my Chicago Bulls drop / dangle earrings (a Birthday gift from my mom).  I've been wearing my ear cuffs on the center of my ear instead of the top; I've always wanted a piercing in that spot but until then, the cuff will suffice. πŸ˜„  Also, I got my nose pierced almost three months ago!  Yay!

The design on this top is so cool!

I've had this pair of Sketchers for years, but I don't wear them very often.  I usually save them for cute casual outfits.

I styled my hair in a really quick half updo, using a quarter of my locs in the front to create somewhat of a french roll or hump.  I used two locs from my crown to tie the hump in place, instead of bobby pins or straight pins.

My mom picked out a pair of sunglasses / sunshades for me when we were shopping in Target.  I absolutely love them.  Target has the cutest clothing, shoes and accessories!

See you in my next post and thanks for reading! ♥

πŸ€ Hopefully, the Bulls will win tonight against the Nuggets. πŸ€

Braid Out on Fine Colored Locs | Easy Dreadlock Styles

Hey guys!  I haven't worn a braid out on my locs in a very long time.  I decided to change that this past weekend and set my hair in large braids once my freshly washed hair was about 75% (seventy-five percent) dry.  I used three (3) locs per braid to give my hair more fullness and texture.  I have enough locs to make both braid outs and twist outs with ease; I only had one braid created with four (4) strands.

I kept my braids in for one day or 24 (twenty-four) hours.  Instead of keeping my braids in for a few days, I set my hair for a much shorter period of time.  The eczema on my scalp is maintained since I wash my hair every three (3) to four (4) days, using SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash on my scalp.  I rinse my locs / strands thoroughly with water and conditioner and use shampoo every few weeks.  It's much too drying to use shampoo on my locs / strands every three (3) days.  I discuss my hair care products in detail here:  Hair Products for Colored Locs and Eczema Relief.  Now to my braid out results!

Hope you all enjoyed this hair update and style!  Thanks for reading and see you in my next post. ♥
