“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1,2
I wore this casual get-up on a recent Sunday afternoon. I especially enjoyed how the various colors in the scarf are mirrored throughout the outfit, from the sweater to the shoulder bag to the shoes. If the purse looks familiar, it’s because it was featured in one of my thrifted Christmas hauls. Liz Claiborne never lets me down. Love that girl!

I was anticipating going out but we ended up making it a girl’s night in when my pals from the Bay Area, Yvette and Crystal, came down to L.A. After hitting up a taco truck and grocery shopping for ingredients for the next morning’s amazing brunch, we piled into Zita’s place. And that proved to be the best decision, as we had a great time catching up, having “girl talk” and laughing. But since I was all swagged out with nowhere to go, I decided to take a few pics before it got too late.

Thanks to all the compliments I received on my Turban Tuesday, Part Deux post, and by popular demand, I present to you my Turban How-To. Here is a step-by-step guide to achieving the fun, sassy look.
Start off with an over-sized scarf. The one used for this turban is rectangular-shaped and measures 70 inches by 42 inches. Fold it in half long ways.
1. Take the scarf and, holding one end in each hand, drape it at the back of your head.
2. Bring your hands together such that you’re holding both ends at your forehead.
Guys, I think I’ve found my niche! I really can’t get enough of the turban look. I wore this particular headwrap to a bonfire on Friday night. I’ve found that it comes in handy when my hair isn’t dry and I’m not quite ready to unravel my two-strand twists. Underneath the wrap, my hair is set in twists covered in my silk bonnet. You would have been none the wiser if I hadn’t said anything. See? Just one example of the myriad benefits of a nice turban.
There are those days when my kinks and coils fall right into place and all is right with the world. Then there are those days when I have to beat them into submission, but inevitably relent because those strands put up too strong a fight. Today was one of those days. Running late for work and searching for some reprieve from the impending “bad hair day,” I dug through my basket of scarves and found this gem, wrapped it around my head, tied it in a bow, fluffed my coils and called it a day. I present to you my very own Turban Tuesday!
