Usually, I’d stick with the “one statement piece is plenty” rule and keep the styling really simple for my leopard jeans, buuuuut for whatever reason, I felt compelled to channel my inner hipster and pile it on… leopard jeans. check. slogan button emblazoned anorak. check. giant link chain. check. slouchy beanie. check. wedge booties. check. giant bag. check. check. check. All I’m missing is a pair of signature nerd glasses. damn it! (I actually have a pair of these somewhere…where are they?!)
Once again, I am hiding something under this beanie. This time it’s a head full of bantu knots. As much as I love the look of my bantu knots, I have to say they are a LOT of work. Do you know that I have to re-knot them every night? Mmm hmm, yep. Such is the life of a fine-haired natural girl. The only way to really preserve my curl/style is to re-twist, re-braid, re-twist every night. Since I work from home, I can take advantage of the co-worker-free zone and simply not take my hair down, buuuuut that doesn’t make for very cute outfits…that is, until I discovered the slouchy beanie. Umm, where have I been? Curly Nikki tried to tell me, but somehow I just got the memo. Now, I just need to buy more colors because Fab already asked me “So ummm, are you gonna wear that beanie everyday now?” *side eye* LOL!
p.s. You might be thinking… didn’t she just wear those jeans? no, no, no. I waited a few days before wearing them again. hehe! Oh, don’t act like I’m the only one. Since these jeans have a print, I can’t wear them back to back like I would my regular jeans. *sigh* I would like to point out that these jeans were VERY tight when I first tried them on. After wearing them twice, they are now a perfect fit. I was kinda worried that they wouldn’t loosen up enough because they are a junior’s size 7…I actually wanted a 9, but couldn’t find that size anywhere. So, if you happen to find these jeans at your local Target, try them on…if they are just a little more snug than you’d like, I say get ‘em. Don’t quote me on this, but they should loosen up. Mine certainly did!
