The Simple Touch

Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.

Hey Guys! This week I started my second session of my summer class, which is  physical fitness and I am one skinny out of shape person. On the second day of class, we did a fitness test to see how fit we  were and I could only do one push up, I think the most I have ever done in my life was three. After five weeks in the class I hope to be in shape and eat healthy because JUNK food always seems to taste better, heehee!
 Anywho, this is what I wore today, I recently purchased the blue bowler hat from H&M. I like spazzed out when I saw they had it, I've been looking for a bowler hat everywhere! I'm glad I finally own one. The vintage skirt is from the thrift store. Vintage skirts are just awesome, the prints are truly one of a kind. I plan on  hemming the bottom  to make the length shorter.  I'm still awaiting my red flatforms from EBAY, ehhh. Hopefully they come in next week, my black ones need a break.
IN OTHER NEWS: I've been thinking really really super super hard about going natural and I think I have finally come to  a decision to try it out. My hair would be so much longer and healthier if I did it. I don't plan on CHOPPING off my hair because I just couldn't go through with that but I plan on slowly transitioning to natural if that's possible considering the length my hair. This could turn out really good or bad, hah, Any advice?

  2. Love the bustier layered with the blazer! Very cute.
    And I've been thinking about going natural as well, really.
    I would never have the confidence to cut it all off either, but I've heard of people just not relaxing it.
    You can look up Youtube vloggers who do that and they use certain hair products to make their relaxed hair look more similar to their natural hair.
    You could also wear sew in extensions and just let your hair grow for months while it's in braids, and then just take them out, wash your hair and re-do it without relaxers in between.
    I'm thinking of doing the latter idea.
    Hope I helped!

    1. Thanks SO MUCH for the help! I've been watching loads of you tube videos and getting great tips! I will def be braiding my hair soon so I can take it out in a month or two, wash then re do again. I can't wait to see the progress in upcoming weeks! I was just looking at some of the vids and thinking "wow, its crazy how FASTTT your hair grows when its natural"
      Im looking forward to checking on your journey as well :)
      Thanks again!

  22. Love the outfit, I've been looking for a bowler hat too but can't seem to find any that I like..

    I think it's takes some adjustment to go natural, even though I've always been natural - when I stopped straightening my hair it took some getting used to. As someone said above it just takes patience, I think you'll do great :)

  23. This is such a lovely outfit, I have absolutely no luck when thrifting so I always get super jealous when I see people have found such nice things! I really want a bowler hat too but I know it wouldn't suit me! Looks super gorgeous on you though! xx

    1. Ohhh I def know what you mean, I've been going to the thrift store more often now to increase my luck and its been working, heehee! Im really finding goodies more on the weekday than weekend! and the bowler hat would soooo suite you, I thought it wouldn't suit me at first because I wasn't use to the shape but I liked how it looked on others. but I tried it on and instantly fell in love with it!
      you should GO FOR IT!!!!
