Me and my summer head scarf are on a road trip to Virginia, which is a seven hour drive from my current home in New York. My family loves to travel, so this is considered a “small run.”
Clothing, of course, must be super comfortable, and for me that means loose. Nothing tight or restrictive. With all the turning and twisting that goes on, I gotta be able to do so with ease. A loose dress, or shorts and i’m usually good to go. In addition, I don’t need my hair in the way, so I simplify with a scarf.
Summer head scarves are a staple in my closet. I even wear the plain ones to sleep at night; black women usually sleep with them to keep their hair in place; I was born into that tradition. To this day my grandmother still wears them. And, as women in general, regardless of ethnicity, a head good head scarf can save a bad hair day. Mine are usually reserved for the summer or if i’m traveling to a hot climate.
I particularly love this one, which I bought for my 9 year old when she was five. However, she doesn’t like to wear it, so I took it. The color is so very vibrant, fun and summery. Above all else, I love to wear my red, popping lipstick to give it some additional life.
I’m wearing two different sunnies in the pics, because I suffer from an eye disorder, (which you can learn about, here) and the ray ban wayfarer has a UV coating that protects my eyes very well. The Burberry on the other hand, just looks good, so I tend to wear it later in the evenings when the sun is going down.
Cheers to the freakin weekend, and Memorial Day on Monday. Live. Love. Laugh.
