Out and About: Leopard and Polka-dot (100th post)

Happy Friday! I hope your week went well. I guess this is my 100th post! :D
I started this blog on February 13, 2012. I talked more about the reasons I started this blog in this post (it's been updated).

Do you remember the outfit I shown here? I did plan on wearing that outfit to school the next day, but after trying it on, it just didn't 'feel' or 'look' right. I changed up the look a bit, although I wasn't entirely satisfied with the outcome (haha). I would have worn the scarf a different way and added a skinny black belt, to cinch in my waist and emphasize the black in the scarf. Oh well, there always a next time (experimenting with one's style is the key!) I'll try to style the red vest and distressed jeans in another OOTD post!

 'Yay' to chubby cheeks (you'll notice what I mean in the pictures below). LOL. I actually think chubby cheeks makes me look younger! ;)
Anyways, check out the look below:

How do you like my new hair-style? Well, I decided to do something new to my hair, rather than the usual Summer, shrunken Afro. I've cut my hair twice this year. Before cutting it, it was collar bone length when stretched out. I cut my hair because I wasn't so sure how to care and style it at the length it was before the cut. I wanted to be able to try different styles with my hair from a short length till when it gets longer (if I decide to let it grow out).

This style in these pictures is a result of me trying a new style. I flat-twisted my hair in sections on Tuesday and took it out the next day. The twist-out result was awesome. I got great curl definition and volume, although my hair is naturally full. I really like the results and can't wait to try other styles with my hair. I hope to get better with styling my hair! :)

What I'm wearing:
Vest: Deb
Top: Thrifted
Pants: Thrifted
Scarf: DIY
Watch: BigLots
Bracelet: Burlington/Mom's
Booties: K-Mart (2 years ago on Black Friday)

What new things have you tried recently?
Take care! :)

    And what a cute relaxed outfit! I think its great how you mixed patterns but it's not overwhelming.

    I think your hair is adorable! I just took a race and ethnicity class about women of color. We did a section on black women hair and I almost cried. I had no idea how crazy of an industry it is! And the videos we watched were of little girls saying they wanted "white girl hair".. my heart dropped. Sorry, a bit deeper than I meant to go!!! BUT I love your hair style! :)
