Wild Child and Flora
Wild Child and Flora…wait until you see my hair!
If you thought dressing through a flash was bad, wait until you see what the Delaware humidity did to my hair! These past few days have been filled with lots of rain, heat and the dreaded humidity. If you are an allergy sufferer, stop reading now because between the flora and the wild child hair you are going to be sneezing your head off!
If you are following me on Instagram (hint hint) – www.instagram.com/ablake48 then you would have seen this lovely floral arrangement that hubby gave me for our anniversary. Not only are they gorgeous in color but they are also very fragrant so much so that when I wake up I feel refreshed with a heightened sense of smell. At first I thought I was smelling an incense stick burning, but as the day wore on the fragrance became less powerful and much more soothing.
Wednesday morning was another uncomfortable day of dressing but it wasn’t that bad at least not until I stepped out of the door and “poof” my hair went into overdrive. It was definitely too hot to keep the curling iron on for more than a few minutes, so what you see is how I wore my hair to work!
I am wearing a thrifted “pool blue” tank and you just don’t know how much strength it took me to not call in to work and stay home pool side. Unfortunately, I am using my days off for more important matters so that wasn’t an option. That is the number one perk that I miss now that I have a position that doesn’t allow “work from home” days, so if you are fortunate enough to have them…take full advantage because you will miss them if/when they are gone.
This too shall pass…mark my words!
The tank was perfect for the busy skirt from CitiTrends and the two-tone sandals also complemented the outfit – what do you think?
