I’m not a businessman. I’m a business, man.

Oh word, I have a temporary, not-so-original way to solve my failure at taking “selfies”. While I wish I had the luxury to wear baseball caps and skirts on the regular, my 9-5:30 calls for me to occasionally look professional. Here are some recent work looks featuring my favorite prints of the moment: tartan, paisley and houndstooth.

OH you know, just running around town pantsless. Kidding. I’m far too modest to do that… in public. If you’re looking for a great body-hugging nude slip to wear under sheer clothing, I highly recommend the DKNY ‘Fusion’ slip, which I wore underneath this shirt.

On rotation: cutout shoulder button-downs, shirt dresses and my RF for Kith X Quintin Selvedge Denim hat!

VENTURED into foreign territory when I picked up these distressed skinny jeans since white denim hasn’t graced this behind in years. Without fail, I’ve managed to unintentionally kick my foot through the knee holes every single time I wiggle into these tight-ass jeans. Luckily, distressed denim is forgiving in that sense.

Hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine, and that you were able to take a moment to observe Memorial Day. Yesterday started off with getting woken up by a call from my college friend Steve who is currently stationed in Germany — before that he was in Afghanistan. After 2+ years of being stationed abroad, he will be transferring to a base in Florida pretty soon. Great news around a holiday that saddens many seems almost bittersweet, but big shout to Steve — who always asks me about my blog — WELCOME HOME, BUDDY!

THE AVERAGE woman will change her hairstyle 104 times in her life. Supremely confident I’m on track to exceed this figure after killing off my slowly dying perm for good (R.I.P. damaged hair) and now embracing straight and short locks. Sounds high at first BUT we’re women — we enjoy evolving, re-inventing ourselves, spicing up things… and most importantly, taking chances.

Sure, they’re temporary chances and risks because after all, hair ALWAYS grows back. That’s the great thing about hair — it’s universally and perpetually forgiving. You always have the extravagance of second, third and fourth chances to get it right.

Conclusion? So far, my hair is the most exciting relationship I’ve ever been in. [SAD FACE] And yes, even though short, it still keeps me warm at night! Ba-dum PSHH. [SAD FACE #2]
