It’s a chilly time of year and many of us (even in L.A.!) are reaching into closets for our coziest winter wear. I’ll be honest. This is the time of year you’ll hear me singing in the shower, “Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t; Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t!” along with naturalista India Arie. When everything is covered up against winter’s frosty bite, I get lazy about the details. Who cares if nobody sees, right? This week’s challenge reminded me that, as natural sisters, there’s no need to hide our light under that proverbial bushel when the weather turns cold.
This week I put together a shoot to demonstrate how accessories and hat-hair can not only be functional against the elements but add color and class to one’s style in these drab winter months. I loved the accessories we were given to work with this week and thought that their earthy hues were in keeping with a natural-oriented style. To keep my curls center-stage I wove my hair into a side-swept French braid and chignon that not only looked elegant on its own, but grabbed attention under a hat, and kept my ears and forehead warm!
These one of a kind accessesories may be available in the webshop.
Check the accessories in the nappshop.
