BEING A NATURAL GIRL

Growing natural hair www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

I started perming my hair exactly 30 years ago and never thought I would see the day when I'd be "a natural girl" again! 

I've always had a really nice grade of hair. However, as I got older it started to break off horribly due to all of the ungodly things I would do to it like perming etc. etc. Then one day I looked in the mirror and I didn't have any in the front of my head and only like 1/3 on the sides and in the back. I was speechless! 

For awhile I wore a weave and that only made it worse. Then I said OK, no more weaves or crazy chemicals, I am going to continue the "Gibson Girl Trend", by washing and braiding my own hair and wear wigs. 

Now, I can not lie I love wigs, they are sooo easy and super cute. Buttt....it took a toll on me after wearing them for about 3 years in this Florida heat!

So basically, trying everything except what came natural caused me to finally go natural! Lol! And I absolutely love it!!!!

SIMPLE YET SASSY! A GREAT CASUAL WEEKEND OUTFIT

casual outfit for women www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

Per my doctor I am 90% healed from the ankle break! Well doc, 90% of the time I feel as if I am only 50% healed. Ugh! Although I am able to walk again there are those days where a quick limp is all I can manage! lol! With that being said, my weakness for 6" stilettos has come to a halt! So lately it has been my mission to find really cute flats and work them into both my weekend casual and not so casual looks. 

Since taking these pics a few weeks ago, this entire look has become my "GO TO" weekend look! I love it simply because it's super cute, very girly, comfy, and it works well with my new Calvin Klein flats.

Although this entire situation has been a hugeee bummer I have grown during this time and learned a few life lessons, some very small and some extremely large. One is that flats aren't that bad!!!! :) xoxoxoxo

BLACK, WHITE AND A RED LIP

Hello Sassy People:

The Red Lip is so CLASSIC. It was years before I learned which red actually looks good with my skin tone. A lot of women won't do this color because it is either to sassy, to bold or they feel that it simply won't work. Well ladies we can agree to disagree! In my opinion all women should have one stick of red! It's such a sexy vibrant color! You can take a simple look and turn it classic in a matter of seconds, and besides we all need to feel sassy every once in awhile!ll :)

On this day I wore a White House, Black Market Dress I purchased while thrifting, and decided to pair it with a vintage red handbag and a red lip called, Milani Color Statement Lipstick, Ruby Valentine. I love this lipstick because its not only really pretty, but it is also a full-coverage application, lightweight, contains vitamins and Paraben free.

Oh and I must give a shout out to Miami Beach Suncare for sending me the super cool shades I am sporting! #love

If you have been wanting a red lip and just couldn't find the right one for you. The  key to the Bold and the Beautiful Red is undertones. The Ruby Valentine is a blue-red that best suits those with cooler undertones and darker skin which works really well for me. For more on red lipstick/undertones click here.

FALL FASHION IN SOUTH FLORIDA

Hello Sassy People:

Living in the sub-tropics you rarely, if at all, see thermal fabrics or multiple layering. Deciding to take that risk may cause an early death! Lol! It is just to hot. 

Fall Fashion Tips www.simplysassysstyle.com
So what is a Sassy South Floridian Fashionista to do?

Although we can't enjoy all the benefits of fall fashion, we can borrow a few trends and incorporate them into our wardrobes by putting our creative juices to use, and focusing on things like, color, fabric and pairing.
I know, I know, what I am wearing today is completely unconventional for autumn/fall but hey once again it's South Florida and we are apart of the exception! Usually, I would try to do something darker in color, but I knew I would be enjoying a full day of the beach and wanted to blend well with the ocean! So I decided to go with one of my favorite transitional pieces, a gorgeous light weight Romeo and Juliet Maxi Dress. It can be worn as great beach wear and also as a super sassy dress.
Romeo and Juliet Maxi Goodwill, Bangles, Hoop Earrings - Annie SezNecklace - Brighton
When thinking of what to wear to be cute and comfy in this wonderful tropical climate, try pairing beautiful light weight and feminine pieces, with your best dark rinse jeans and metal accented shoes or over the knee boots for a daytime look. When heading out for a night on the town try rocking a classic lace or non lace LBD. This will keep you looking effortless and graceful, while still capturing the South Florida fall flavor.
