curly top

curly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdWhen I posted this photo on Instagram last week, I got some really sweet comments about my curly mane. Damien also LOVES my hair like this, but I rarely wear it this way. It’s not that I’m trying to spite my beau or anything weird like that (hehe), it’s just that, contrary to popular belief, it’s a lot harder maintaining “natural hair” than blown-out hair. When I rock this mini fro, it takes about 3 hours for it to air-dry (I’ve tried defusers but it never comes out as good), then it takes another 30 minutes of adding product and scrunching my hair. Once it’s completely dry, it takes an additional 15 minutes to curl any ends that are super frizzed out. Then, as soon as I sleep on this head of hair, I have to repeat the whole process or put it up in a bun because it’s a hot mess the next day. All this work for one day! On the flip side, if I go to the hair salon and get a great blow out, I am set and ready to go for a week! Now, do you understand my conundrum?  curly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdcurly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdcurly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdRegardless, this Summer I vow to go curly more often and to wear lots of one-pieces, like this beauty from Victoria’s Secret. I love how it can double as a top and easily take you from day to night. The color block (it’s actually light pink & grey in the middle but the lighting here makes is look more white) is perfection and a great mix of soft and edgy. Yay one-pieces! curly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdcurly top - STYLE ME GRASIE ootdVictoria’s Secret color block one-piece $58 (on sale!) // Madewell high-waist jeans (similar on sale! $69.50) // H&M belt (similar $14) // Goorin Bros hat $80

    I like your hair this way and Yes I understand. I have naturally wavy hair and it takes forever to straighten, so I normal rock it in its natural state. Today it’s straight because I did a blow out Saturday…this won’t last long. See the crazy here:

    • haha! love the crazy! but straight looks great too 🙂
