Ikat and National bbq day

Watched the fireworks at home.


Cooked some black eyed peas



And went off-season shopping, aka I just bought the cute stuff that was on clearance. The best feeling is buying great quality pieces for a fraction of what I think its worth.   I was a tad bit hot trying on this ikat jacket, but I just couldn't wait to try it out with possible outfits. Here's one.




In other ikat news, I cut up a bandeau maxi dress i bought last year. I was ok cutting it up, even though it is one of my favorite dresses perfect for surprise sweltering Chicago weather....I've gotten good mileage out of it so I was itching to change it.



I guess I'm growing my hair out now too. I haven't really committed to it though. I know I can stick with it as long as I can form a 10 minute afro.  When my hair gets to a certain point though, even an afro can take more than 10 minutes to shape up.   I said I was going to grow it, but if I feel like its taking too long to style..chop. chop.

On a random note, I was out and about last week and met a man who had tape on the bottom of his Nikon Coolpix just like mine!  Exact same model and color. Maybe he's clumsy like me, but now i think its the camera's fault.  I thought it was just me. Turns out he dropped his camera once and blaow! Just like that, an itty bitty piece of plastic chipped off so the battery won't stay closed without the help of some good quality
clear tape.
