Liquid Camo

 

Today’s look was inspired by the (late) amazing Kryzada Rodriguez.

 

 

 

I’ve had this camo jacket from Old Navy for years. It is constant, year round rotation. Like, constant. I have to make myself not wear it every week. From a “cost per wear” perspective, this jacket now owes me money! That’s how often I have worn it.

If you don’t have a camo jacket, here is an option on Amazon. And here’s a cute option at JCPenney that also comes in plus-sized.

 

 

I think one of the things that I like about this look is the shine that the liquid leggings adds. I purchased these leggings a few years ago from Cato’s (yup, that Cato’s). But here is a great pair from Amazon. You can get more ideas on how to wear these on my “Looks for Leggings” Pinterest Board.

 

 

I know what you’re thinking–camo and leopard print? Yep. I pattern mix sometimes–and camo and leopard print is my favorite combo. You can find a couple of other examples on my Camo Chic Pinterest Board.

By the way, my barber, Tamarah, put her foot in my haircut this week (per usual–and that’s a good thing).

 

 

 

 

 

I wore this look to meet this beauty…

 

We met in 2012. But this is our first time meeting in person. Renata was part of the initial vision carriers for International Natural Hair Meetup Daywhen it started in 2012. She was integral in establishing its spirit and foundation and one of the first event hosts.  I was so grateful to finally meet someone who helped establish my vision and cause it to come to life. 

One of the things that I came to admire most about Kyrzayda is her perseverance through her illness. Through hospital stays, treatments that caused her to lose her hair and weight, she continued to inspire people. Her life, which should have not ended so soon, is a strong testament to making the most with the time you’re given. What are you doing to make the most of the time you’re given (leave me a comment)?

 

“Lastly, make sure you enjoy the ones you love.”

Kyrzayda Rodriguez
