My really good friend just got married recently. And to celebrate the love between the love birds I chose to go with a simple outfit. Plus it was a really hot day in Minneapolis. When I got this skirt I was inspired by all the awesome tulle skirts that I have been seen on some of my favorite fashion blogs. However I'm not quite ready to do the tulle skirt thing yet, so I thought this would be a good alternative. I love how the skirt has the sheer layer. I thought it was super classy. I also feel so grown in it lol Mostly because I love form fitting dresses and skirts. But I'm trying to do something different.
I don't make it a secret that I have a love and hate relationship with my hair. Mostly because taking care of natural, unprocessed hair can be a lot of work. Over the years since being fully natural, I have taken on protective styles to keep myself from manipulating my hair too much or even just going back to that creamy crack...lol
Ok let me start off by saying that these pictures turned out so good that I was pretty surprised with myself AND my camera. Because my lens is made for portraits it can take a while for me to focus and get a good shot doing it by myself. But I digress. You're not here for my lame photography skills...you want to know about the makeup right?!
Well I was inspired by summer (again) and I wanted to channel my inner bronzed Goddess. But with a pop of color! Because color is FUN! Don't be afraid to use some color ladies (and gents).
