What to Wear to Work: Floral

My friend and colleague, Laura looks AMAZING in her floral print dress. It is perfect for a hot summer day in the DMV!

Laura wore this dress to work on Wednesday and I had to feature her on this blog. The colors compliment her skin tone and the print and colors made me happy when I looked at this dress. Laura’s beautiful smile is just the icing on the cake of this amazing outfit.imageWhat Laura is wearing:

Yes, I did the BIG CHOP (actually twice!)

I know there is much discussion over to do the BIG CHOP or not. I have been natural for 2 years and during my transition period I got so tired of trying to deal with the 2 textures – the new growth of natural hair and the old relaxed, straggly hair that was just hanging out on my ends. I was hard to create a decent hair style with these 2 textures so one day I cut about 80% of the relaxer off but I was scared to cut it any shorter. About two weeks went by and I decided why not – so I did! It was the best thing I ever did for my hair. Finally getting rid of all of the relaxer made me feel free! I wanted to shout from the mountain top that all of the creamy crack was gone.

Everyone has to do what is best for them but for me it was the BIG CHOP all the way!
