Outfit: Safari Glam

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!!!! *throws confetti* The weekend is here and that means one thing.....my vacation starts in exactly 1 week! Whoop, whoop! Okay, let me reign in my excitement.....the good lord knows I won't be any good at work if I don't put a lid on it ;-) I usually pack my clothes a couple of days before a trip but this time I'm fully packed more than a week in advance, lol. I've been shopping like crazy which is the one thing I don't like about myself around vacation time. I mean, I already have items that are perfect for a trip filled with beach essentials and lazy glamour clothing (that is such a perfect oxymoron *tee hee hee*) but I still tend to buy new items. Someone please take my card.....and memory since I know the digits as smoothly as I know my social security number, SMH.

I'm getting my hair braided this weekend and I'm so excited. I've rocked this protective style for the longest as my hair transitioned from its relaxed state to a natural one free of harsh chemicals and constant heat. However, I'm still scared to let it all down; not because I am ashamed of any connotations, I LOVE my heritage.....but simply because I have two left hands when it comes to hair styling, lol. Furthermore, my patience is paper thin!!! Thank goodness I have fabulous stylist and wonderful girlfriends who are going to help me out :-)

Geesh, I'm just typing away like I don't have to get my behind up and head in to work, lol. The look below is what I playfully label safari glam. I built the look around my hat because ever since I made the decision to switch to braids, I have done absolutely NOTHING to these poor little weaved tresses.So this hat paired with my fav DIY vest was the start and then I had to amp up the look with a burgundy lip and bombshell heels. I do love my contradictory outfits....makes me appear discombobulated! Haaa!



My bf despises these shorts, LMBO! He says they have waaayyyyy too much room in them, sort of reminds him of Depends.....LOL. #men
