Memo 065: All Summer Long

To: All
From: Me
Date: June 4, 2013
Subject: Turbantastic!

So, remember how I said that I was wearing turbans all summer?

Well, that's definitely happening.

I'm in the midst of some very serious hair confusion. It is currently 1/6 natural (like 2 or so inches beyond new growth). Some days I want to color it, cut it off, braid it up, grow it out or add a little extra. All I do know is that I'm ready for a change. Coupled with the fact that it needs to be able to handle a 4 - 5 day workout schedule, I'm not exactly sure which change to make at this moment.

So, until then, I'll put a turban on it!

  1. Such a cute outfit!! Love your turban. I like the way it can be used a protective style for the spring and summer months. In addition to swooning over your outfit I saw that you said it hard to manage your hair since you work out 4 to 5 times a week. I have found that by using the CHI Keratin Mist it keeps my hair healthy and not as oily after doing several workouts in that week. If you are looking for a new product I would highly suggest it :)

    With Love,

    1. Thanks, Ashley! I need all the hair help I can get right now!

  2. JUST bought the charlotte olympias YASSSSSSSSS GAWD!!! I have been eyeing these for like ever... they are actually cheaper on Neiman Marcus $586. How do they fit, I went up size but i am scared they will be too big being sling backs.

    1. I always go up a size in European sizes. So, you should be fine. Neiman does have them cheaper but they only have a 40 left! Bergdorf has more sizes available. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

  3. I love this outfit, your turban is amazing. Maybe do a tutorial on how u got it that way?im currently transitioning and i can never get my turban to look like this.

    Style n love, jamaica

  4. Hi,

    I just wanted to say you have a beautiful outfit. And about the hair, my mom transitioned without a big chop too. I actually kind of forced her. But she really liked her hair only when it got fuller towards the time she had to get a new relaxer put in. She liked the fullness of her hair. Only she'd get a relaxer and take all that out?
    Anyway, all she did ( I do not know her hair classification, but it is very thick), a LOT of hair), was got to the barbers to get a colour treatment and her hair would be very soft once again. She also braided, and still does, braid her hair every evening. Maybe you can join http://naturalsunshine.ning.com? It's a community where we support one another with natural hair. It's also very informative and you might be able to give someone else advice!

    I hope this helped a bit, good luck transistioning, but you can do it!

  5. Loving this look! I could never pull this off, but you look darling. Like usual, you know how to mix and match prints and make it work!

  6. Love love love the turban, not many can pull it off successfully so kudos.

  7. You've got lovely cheekbones, so I think a short hair cut may work :) Love the outfit.

  8. Love this look! You look amazing!

  9. You look adorable and what a nice skirt!!! I am a big fan of head accessories myself. This summer I am rocking turbans as well.
