Moody Style: Merci, Merci, Merci

Don’t forget to enter my Holiday Giveaway (here)!

I’m pretty happy that I grabbed this t-shirt from J.Crew on Cyber Monday.  I love that it’s so versatile.  You can layer it with a button-down shirt underneath or throw a blazer over it to dress it up a little bit or just wear it by itself.  This past Sunday was filled with running errands, Christmas shopping, a baby shower and a cookie exchange.  So I had to come up with an outfit that worked for the entire day.  I think that this shirt helped to complete the look.  I can’t wait to come up with more looks with this little tee.   So I want to say a quick merci to the peeps at J.Crew for continuing to create amazing must-have pieces.  I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in 2014.  Did you score any amazing deals on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?  What was your favorite purchase?  Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Twisting Out A New Look

So I decided to experiment with my hair this past week and I took the plunge to wear my hair natural. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but I was really nervous about what my hair would look like.  I was also worried about styling limitations due to the length of my hair.  I watched a ton of YouTube videos and checked out a ton of blogs and found a style that fit me perfectly.  I wore this twist out style for a week and really I loved it.  I felt confident, free and a little sassy.  However, while I loved my new do, I realized that it’s not the best style for me right now.  As I’ve mentioned on my blog before, my job requires me to travel quite a bit and at this point I need a style that is quick and easy for my lifestyle.  This week, I decided to go back to my braids again because frankly it’s easier to manage and style.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll eventually come back to this look sooner rather than later, but I have to do some more research on alternate hair styles before I can fully commit.  Have any of you experimented with your hair? Whether it be a new color, a cut or a new style that you weren’t real sure about?  Did you change it right away or did you continue to rock it and just deal with it?  Let me know in the comments.
