OOTD | Pink Blush and Olive Green – California Casual

The weekends are made for relaxing and unwinding. 😎 At least that’s my motto.

A couple of weekends ago I got to spend a lovely Sunday with my cousin. We walked around downtown Disney, had lunch at Earl of Sandwhich, and spent some time people watching.

Outfit legs crossed

My OOTD consisted of an olive green body suit and pink blush shorts.  Since it’s been so hot, I picked cotton materials to keep cool and comfy, and paired my outfit with a simple tassel choker and nude wedge slingbacks.

OOTD | Pastel Mickey Mouse Inspired Outfit

Wohoo! It’s officially the weekend! Are you as excited as me? 😋 Lately I’ve found myself watching a lot of Disney YouTube videos.  Maybe it’s because I have such good memories of Disney but I find it super relaxing. I’ve really been into watching “Thingamavlogs“, “Magic Journeys, and more recently the “DSNY Newscast“.  Watching those videos reminds me of my adventures.  More specifically, Epcot’s annual Food and Wine Festival, which is hosted in late fall.  In my post EPCOT: How to drink around the [Disney] World | Orlando, Florida I gave out tips on how to prepare for your vacation. But another fun part of these trips is dressing the part!

I like to be subtle but fun with my outfits when doing anything Disney.  It’s especially fun when you coordinate with whoever you’re going with.  This is more common with larger groups at Epcot.  You tend to see a lot of birthday, bachelor/bachelorette, or family groups coordinating their gear.

From the shirt you can see that the main image of Mickey is on the back with a hidden Mickey on the front. I picked shorts and accessories to match the colors in the design. In this case it was hot pink and baby blue.

There’s no reason you can’t display your Disney pride without being cheesy.  Disney is not just for kids you know. 😉 Have fun and make the most of your memories!

OOTD | Vacation Vibing

Happy Friday lovelies! 💕  I’m currently wishing I was still on vacation or at least planning for one.  Why can’t every weekend be a three day weekend?  The 4th of July can’t come soon enough!  Hopefully you have some fun plans because I’ve got a little something up my sleeve for the week.  😉

Until then, I’ll just reminisce on trips past.  Here is an outfit post from a recent trip to Puerto Rico.  So exactly what does a California girl wear on vacation?  Well an adult onesie of course! (Better known as a bodysuit)  A fanny pack for all of her essentials and worn in comfy flip flops for all that exploring.

The sun the sand and a drink in my hand. Life is good today.

Motivation | Why it’s okay to rock your hair however you want it

A good friend of mine was making fun of me about my blog name, curlsxoxo. She said, “How can you have a blog named curls and not show your curls?” And she was right.  I rarely wear my hair naturally.  I’ve always had a difcult time embracing it. Mainly because the comments I get and stares (I’m assuming because of my hair). Naturally, my hair is volumonous. I’ve been known to make hairdressers sweat. Growing up in the 90’s, I was on trend.  Big volumonous curls lathered in gel and mouse for that wet look.  I thought I was soooo cool. 😎

I started straightening it as soon as I could afford my own straightener.  I was never really good with a roundbrush and blowdryer. That’s more for people with time and patience. Something that I’m consistently having to work on.  Then in the late 2000’s, the evolution of the Brazilian blowout became popular in Los Angeles.  It was definitely out of my price range, but luckily for me, I knew someone that would give me a friends and family discount.  And that’s how my brazilian blowout obsession started.  I no longer had to spend hundreds of dollars on hair gels, creams, milks, or serums.  My once tedious hair routine was no longer existent.  I had a new found confidence and an even sexier swag.  But why give all that power to my hair?  Who am I? Samson? Does all of my strength lie on my head?

No!  My hair is curly and crazy and voluminous… and I love it! ❤️ It doesn’t have to be straight to give me confidence.  My friend was completely right to make fun of me for the irony of my blog name.  I guess I never sat down to really think about it.  I still plan on styling my hair however I want, but I’ll be rocking the curls more often.

Do what makes you happy.  Natural is beautiful and confidence is even sexier. Remember that your strength doesn’t lie on your head.  It’s being comfortable in your own skin and paying attention to your mind and body that gives you your strength.  Do you boo and rock your hair however you want it!
