Black, Red & White: Checkered Vest and Stripes with a Leopard Bag

So, Matt pointed out that I’ve worn this vest about 5 times in the last week or so… whoooops. I loved the herringbone version so much and am glad to have another, especially during the cold days. And by cold, I mean that it is seriously chilly here! I missed the snowfall in both Michigan and Massachusetts (which I wasn’t sad about) but it seems that winter is here for good as it just snowed last night and was quite bitter outside. I definitely love wearing layers because it is so fun to play with patterns, so that’s the one positive about winter.

Today I’m playing with gingham, stripes, and leopard. I don’t know why, but I gravitated toward the statement bag, on top of the vest, to top off this look. The clashing patterns are unexpected and cheerful to me. What do you guys think? Too much or just right?

I also opted to play with my hair and throw in some braids. Wearing a headband style braid is the perfect mask for dirty hair. I don’t wash my hair every day, and I don’t think anybody should. It dries your hair out too much, and natural oils are healthy. with that being said, when you work out each day, it gets dirty, stinky and greasy fast. I use a dry shampoo (Dry Bar smells the best) and sometimes braid or wear a top knot. I always get extra compliment son these two styles, which is ironic! These braids aren’t perfect because they were done in about 2 minutes, but they’re interesting and different. My sister, Sarah, is the hair master, so I will have to practice more styles with her to show you all this holiday break!

That’s all for me! Have a great day & thanks for reading.

Pues Matt me hizo darme cuenta que he utilizado este chaleco varias veces durante la semana pasada.. demasiado jaja. Uups! Es que me gusta mucho mi otra chaleco espiguilla, y la utilicé mucho durante los días fríos. ¿Entonces, porqué no tener otra versión? Ahora hace muchísimo frío aquí y creo que vino el invierno. No vi la nevada ni en Michigan ni en Massachusetts hasta anoche. Pues definitivamente hace frío y los días están glaciales. Lo bueno de este clima es que llevo muchas capas y juego con estampados. 

Hoy mezclo guinga, rayas y leopardo. No sé porqué pero me llamó la atención la bolsa leo. Aunque no combinan exactamente los estampados, me gustan y creo que el look es más interesante así. ¿Les gusta?

También opté por trenzas en mi cabello. De hecho, mi pelo estaba sucio. Siempre llevo o trenzas o un top-knot cuando mi pelo está sucio. De hecho,no lo lavo cada día, y no creo que deban tampoco. es más saludable tener los aceites naturales y menos seco para el pelo. Pues uso un champú seco (Dry Bar) para ocultar el aceite del cabelo, y llevo trenzas de estilo cinta. Estas trenzas no son perfectas (las que hace mi hermana, Sarah, siempre son) pero son divertidos y interesantes. Además, no tuve que laval mi pelo jaja. 

Pues espero que tengan un lindo día. ¡Gracias por leer!

  1. I say the print mixing here is just right! Also, you’re lucky your hair looks this good when it’s “dirty.” I don’t wash mine everyday either, but when I don’t, I have to wear it up because it gets so oily so fast!

      Thanks Sarah! And i think you definitely need dry shampoo then! Mine gets very greasy but the dry shampoo takes it all out!
