Chartreuse & Pig-Buns

by Jamila Pierre

I am and forever will be a fan of this other news:

On this day I headed out with the hubz to run a few errands, it was also the first time in a long time that I wore my hair up in two pig-buns. Once upon a time my hair was sans locks and I rocked the hell out of this hair style all of the the point of nauseum. I then started the locking process and my hairstyle varied from a ponytail to just plain ole' loose. At some point my hair grew down to the crack of my ass and by then my hair was too massive for me to balance with finesse.  A good 6 yrs later I cut my hair into a bob, this didn't allow me much leeway as it pertains to styling, and just a couple of months ago I decided to let my hair grow again to see if it could reach my tookus once more. 

In the mean time I decided to pull out my tried and true hairstyle (the pig-buns) and i'm curious to see how sick and tired I can become of to join me?

As for the outfit... I paired one of my most comfortable pantalones of all time (next to my Forever21 high-waisted  jeans), with a chartreuse blouse and my studded boots. I wanted to teeter on the edge  of  "I just rolled out of my closet" and "I actually give a damn" so I cuffed up my jeans, threw on a necklace, popped on a lippy, threw my hair up, and was ready to go.



What I'm Wearing:

  1. Top from $12
  2. Jeans from $19.99
  3. Boots from $15 (on sale from $45)
  4. Bag from Forever21, circa 2013, (Gifted)
  5. Necklace and bracelet from Burlington coat Factory. $7-$12

Truth moment: 

I by no means need any more dresses. I have a million of them and to be honest,  that figure might not be far  from the truth though I may be over exaggerating.

But.... when I saw this obvious brother from another mother, to my sleeveless red and white version, I was I mean who wouldn't want a fall/winter friendly monochromatic version of that red and white dress (HERE)? I initially was going to don this dress during my trip to Boston, but I ended up spending most of my time in the hotel room. The best part of this dress (aside from it's fabulous color and 3/4 inch sleeves) is that it is form fitting without being tight at all, SCORE!

I decided to pair it with my ridiculously oversized chain necklace and my most favorite, and most comfy, kitten heels... EVER.

And now, I am ready for a night out with my hunny bun.

What I'm Wearing: 

  1. Necklace from AFAZE. (3 for $10 sale)
  2. Dress from $27.80
  3. Heels From $29.99 (on sale from $80)
