Let's talk about the myth that you can't wear leather (or in this case pleather) in the summer. Pish posh. You can 110%. Now, I wouldn't wear it hear to toe (unless you are in to sweating) but an outfit containing leather in some way is completely and perfectly fine.

A prime example is this high-waisted pleather mini that I picked up at H&M. Not too much and thankfully not too little (I know, I was shocked a mini from H&M fit too). I paired it with this amazing floral duster from tall retailer Amalli Talli (love love love) and a neck piece from Rocks Box (straight rented homie).

SIDE NOTE: You have definitely seen this hat and heels on my blog before and guess what...you probably will see them in future posts as well. They are some of my old faithfuls. There is NOTHING wrong with wearing things multiple times. Nothing at all.

So the moral of the story is...break the season rules. Explore what you like and go to town. You are in charge of your style. Do you!

Hair Update: Thank you so much for all of your emails and comments. Your support makes me tear up with joyful tears every day. I am still getting used to it (mainly the time it takes) and not completely sold yet BUT I am super excited because this Thursday I have an appointment with the one and only Curl Doctor Shai Amiel at the Capella Salon in Los Angeles. I want my hair to be the healthiest it can be and he is the one that will get me there. I am looking forward to it. I really think it's going to be a game changer in my curl journey. Can't wait to share all about it!
