You may have noticed a theme over the past few weeks and months as I’ve openly shared a few of my 2017 goals. I’ve talked about fitness goals, skincare goals, and new beauty habits. I wrote down one overarching goal related to my style: be fearless and bold this year. So, I’m doing just that. Meet the new me!
If you’ve seen my short tapered cuts (see old natural hair posts here and here), you know I’m not shy when it comes to scissors. But, I’ve always wanted to shave my head and resisted due to fear. I was afraid the style wouldn’t suit me. I was afraid I just wouldn’t like it. I was afraid the look would disrupt my blog work. Fear!
But, it’s 2017. And, I simply can’t let fear guide my decisions. And, well, I knew that I could always throw on a wig if it didn’t work out. Ha!
It also helps that I have a super cool stylist whose vision I trust. She has rocked with me since I went from locs to my fro to my tapered fro to wanting locs again to this new do. I called her up, and with no questions asked, she said come on in. She even recorded the experience (see her Instagram video).
On this blog, I always give thought to how fashion changes how we view the world and how the world views us. This is where my head (pun intended) is now, and I’m excited about the change.
By the way, how fun is this gingham print from Banana Republic? If you like the print, you should know that it’s available on just about every article of clothing at the store (see widget below). Of course, the gingham blazer had me at hello.
