As seen on my blog 

Currently where I live it has not been feeling like Spring, not in the slightest. It’s the end of May and we’ve been experiencing nonstop rainy/overcast days, and temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s. It’s MAY! The weather is supposed to be sunny and in the 80’s by now. So forgive me if I’m a little salty about it feeling like Fall.I am by no means ready for stores to start putting out Fall clothes! But anyway, that was my little rant about the weather and seasons running together. Today I want to make this blog post about how I’ve noticed that my desired sense of style is changing and I also want to give a hair update! 

Now, what do I mean by “my desired sense of style?” I mean that I am constantly on Instagram and I follow fashion accounts such as, fabfashionkillas and stylistbyair, and they make me want to update my wardrobe. My ideal fashion is that of those two accounts, so if you decide to check them out (especially fabfashionkillas) that’s more or less the looks that I’m in to, from the nails to the shoes. When I say “update” I mean get rid of 80% of my wardrobe and replace it. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful or unappreciative of the clothes that I do have, but I no longer find the majority of what I have to be my style. I know I can’t be the only person, male or female, who stands in front of my closet full of clothes and say “I have nothing to wear.” When I shop I tend to focus on clothes shopping, not necessarily shoe shopping. Then I look at my shoe collection like, I “need” more heels, I “need” more tennis shoes, I “need” more flats, I “need” more sandals. In reality I have a few pairs of each, but I don’t really like the ones that I have anymore because I got them years ago, with the exception of a pair of heels and a pair of Nike tennis shoes that I got within the past year. I love shoes, especially heels. I’ve been sliding my feet in my aunts heels since I was about 7-years-old and that’s when I started practicing in them with ease lol. When I’m on Twitter looking at accounts with pictures of “dream closets” my eyes turn into hearts just like the emoji. The closets will be huge with shelves upon shelves stocked with heels that are color coordinated, boots, flats, purses, tennis shoes, etc; your ultimate dream closet if you’re a girl who’s into things like that.

But back to my desired sense of style. I personally think I can be an expensive shopper. For the longest when I was younger, my mom and I would go in a store and I would say I want this or I want that. My mom would say “how much is it?” and I wouldn’t even know because the price tag was not the first thing I looked at lol. Another problem when I was younger was I would go to the racks right at the front of the store. My mother taught me that you always start in the back of the store. I discussed this point in my post, “For the Shopaholics: 5 Helpful Tips,” in the Shopping category of my blog. To this day, the price tag is still not the first thing I look at when I go shopping. If I see something I like more than likely I will buy it even if it’s a little on the pricey side, within reason though. For example, if it’s a blouse or skirt that costs $40 in the store that I’m currently in but I know I could get the same type of blouse/skirt for less at another store then I will almost always get it from the other store! I am all for saving money, saving money is making money ya’ll. 

I keep drifting away from my point -_- smh. Having slightly expensive taste is something that I currently do not have the means to cater to right now, which can be very frustrating! Of course there are ways to still get the look I want by shopping at stores that are within my means, BUT those stores don’t always have what I want or the specific look that a more expensive store may have. Again, very frustrating. I’ve been tossing around the idea of becoming a thrift store shopper and buying a lot for less and just manipulating the material to the way I want it to look, but that’s time consuming. I’m at a crossroads here people. The way I see it, I can just continue to gradually get rid of the old and replace it with new like I’ve been doing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So that was my piece on my changing style. Now let’s talk about my hair update! 

I decided to chop my hair off again in, I believe it was, early-mid March. My hair was a decent length before I cut it if you look at my old ig pictures (jordyy1820_). But I straightened my hair for about a month straight, just straighten, wash, straighten, wash. The problem with my hair though was it started to undergo heat damage >_< The heat damage was only along my hairline and the back of my head. Although I would straighten my whole head once, every morning when I woke up I would re-straighten the hair along my hairline and in the back because it would be frizzy and my roots would be wavy. After a month of doing that, I didn’t straighten my hair anymore and my “go to” style was the two buns that look like Minnie Mouse ears and I would have the lower half of my hair down.  

I was so embarrassed to have my hair out in a wash-n-go because it looked so bad with these stringy curls in the back of my head and in the front of my hair. Granted, the curls in the back of my head, towards the base of my neck, are looser than the curls on the rest of my head but they’re not stringy. So that was it. I got tired of the way my hair looked and I had my mom chop it off. I had a twa (teeny weeny afro) before during my senior year of high school, but this time I wanted my hair to be very close to my scalp. My mom cut it off the first time in March and then about two weeks later, I had her cut it down even more. My hair grows back fairly quick, so when she first cut it I was barely able to get a grip on my hair to stretch it out. Now, my hair is about an inch and a half long. I was going back and forth between just keeping it short or continue to let it grow out, and I’ve decided to let it grow back out. I’m starting to miss my big hair and being able to do stuff with it lol. I think I stated in one of my other posts on hair, that I love to change my hair, I don’t like having it one way for too long. I actually considered getting wigs at one point because I literally am so indecisive when it comes to my hair, I need options. 

But anyway, those were the two things that I wanted to talk about for this postttt, I hope you enjoyed reading it! Also, feel free to leave blog post suggestions if there’s something specific you want me to talk about🙂 Until next week!
