What to Wear Wednesday: Candy Girl
Want to call all the boys to the yard? Pig tails will do it, what you do with them once they are there is up to you. I love playing up my cute, sexy, young side. And I love ice cream candy! I think it’s important for women to own who they are and what they look like. At times I have been ashamed or irritated, because of how young I look. I often get mistaken for 20 and even younger at times.. I’m a good amount older than 20. I’ve now decided to own it and find strength and power in the fact that “Black don’t crack.” Being a powerful woman and being of feminity has its ups and downs, but sometimes I enjoy playing up to the ups. I choose to wear a crop top and skinny jeans for this look.
Shop the look:
The pink crop top has been discontinued! (Which is the worst) the brand Foreign Exchange went out of business last year and that just about broke my heart. I went shopping too many times at their Minneapolis location in MOA, but sometimes good things come to an end. You can buy a similar crop at Forever 21
Black Skinny Jeans
I got my black skinny jeans and Express. I love how Express jeans fit and I always recommend splurging on good jeans that hug your waist and curves.
Hair can make or break an outfit. For this pigtail look I use Cantu leave-in Conditioner, Cantu Curling Cream, and ECO hair gel, those three products are actually my staple items. First I take a shower and use sulfate free conditioners and shampoo. Once I get out of the shower I rub the curling cream and Cantu leave-in conditioner on my palms and add it to my hair while wet. I then add ECO hair gel and wet my hair again if I see any clumping areas.
