STYLE IT: Of Pompoms and the pencil.

Hey loves…

Happy new week!! I hope you guys are awesome. All I can say for myself is… school…just school, A lot of school. That being said… today’s post is in the style it series yet again. This time we talk pre-wash fros and getting your slay on with basically minimal effort.

First, we talk hair… for us type four peoples, the kink is real. When you are preparing for wash day and then someone interrupts by asking to meet you… or when you have absolutely no idea of what to do with your hair….a puff usually saves the day. This tough can get extremely monotonous and sometimes you have to switch it up… with two mini puffs aka pom poms. This is not only versatile, but it has such kiddy and relaxed vibes attached to it!!

Then there is the pencil skirt that is a timeless awesome piece that gets you from 0-100 quite seamlessly. (The only struggle has to be the walking lol). Of course black is bae because I enjoy minimalist and monochrome vibes as well.

So when you combine them… well, let the pictures work that out.

Love and love

Nyake.

So for anyone with a similar struggle… I compiled a list of reminders for you. I hope you learn something or you remember stuff you used to do.
