Coils and Skirts

Coils and Skirts

Spring hadn’t yet sprung.

But to encourage her advent, I traded my protective crochet hair styles for the coils of my Big-Chopped (since October 20, 2014) natural hair, which I styled in coils or twists. To achieve the look, I co-washed my hair with TRESemme, my fav conditioner, and twisted a bit of hair around my finger with coconut oil and a smidgen of Eco styler gel.

Then I donned my Max Studio, ankle-length skirt, so comfortable in the breathable way the rayon and spandex fabric combo feels against my body. I’d been waiting to wear it for weeks yet never got around to styling and photographing it, before the warmer temps whispered news of Spring’s Atlanta appearance. So you know when the slowly warming weather reverted back to brisk temps before my girl officially arrived, I snatched my opportunity to style the beige, grey-striped darling with a Heart Hips dark-beige blouse and a lacy overlay of a vest. The variant beige colors were perfect for the overcast day and the iffy temperature. I thrifted the Mossimo pumps at Goodwill.

Have you not worn any winter favorites before the weather changed? If not, do you fold them and simply put them away for next winter, or do you style them in the present season, making them work in delightful, delicious ways?

In this pic, I’ve omitted the lacy, overlay vest. Actually, I don’t know its official name, but I rather liked the different look.

I love the skirt’s elegant flow, the easy way it moves with me, swirls around me.

I love how the skirt is soft enough and long enough to be knotted!

    1. Warm Friday greetings, Fiona!

      I’m just now pausing to enjoy my comments. Thank you for reading my post and joining me here on my blog! I really appreciate you and am tickled to join you at Roundtheworldgyal. What a charming name for a travel blog!

      And yaaaaaaaas! Give me a soft, flowing, and comfortable skirt any day. Esperate. Now that I’m thinking about it, I could have changed the shoes for this look. Might have shown how easily it goes from work to play in heels or flats. Oh well! Everybody gets the message that it can be styled however they like.

      Why am I getting sleepy? Will bow to the body and meditate. If I tumble into slumber while emptying my mind, I will bow to serenity.

      Will visit your blog home soon,
