|Army Green Inspiration|

This week I have been cleaning out my closet and doing a lot of reorganizing. I've been finding pieces of clothing that I have totally forgotten about and/or have never worn. I've also taken a huge chunk of clothing out to sell/give away. I found an Army green cardigan that I haven't worn in years. After checking my bloglovin account earlier this week, I was inspired to use this piece. I love the material of this cardigan because it's so flowy and soft. I paired it with a black body con skirt embellished with gold studs to give it more of an edgy feel. I wore a green patterned top (another piece I just found in my closet) to tie in the skirt and cardigan. For shoes I wore some simple metallic sandals.
Excuse my awkward hand
Here's how other bloggers styled their Army Green this week:

This past week I've been participating in Alison from Get Your Pretty On's Summer Hair Challenge. It's been a real struggle for me not to put my crazy curly hair into a bun every morning, but I've really embraced my curls and learned to not hate them so much. I never wear my hair down curly because, due to being mixed races, part of my hair is really curly part is straighter. As a kid, my hair was all curly. As I got older it morphed into this mess of half straight, half curly hair. I figured out this week that I can just pin the straight hairs in the front back and no one would notice. I even got a few compliments this week.
