This weekend I headed to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate all things hair- Curlfest. This is year two for me, and what a difference a year makes. The plethora of melanin was beautiful. I definitely wanted to capture all the beauty of Curlfest, so Grown and Curvy and I took tons of pictures of the event. Trust me, if you have not attended Curlfest, make sure you add it to your calendar next summer. It is an amazing event.
I was given the name Sporty Spice because I am definitely all about athleisure. Comfy but cool is definitely the name of the game especially in this NY humidity. I ordered these wide leg track pants from Eloquii a while back and I knew it would they would perfect. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a good cute dress or skirt, but when it's hot and lots of walking is involved, I like to wear pants. I don't want to worry about chub rub. I just want to enjoy my time in the sun. I am wearing a 16 in the pants, and they fit wonderfully. They are the perfect length for me to wear sandals. If you love a wide leg pant, you will not be disappointed.
I paired the pants with their printed crop top. I went with a 18 in the top because I needed room for the girls, but I did have room. I wonder if the 16 would have fit better, but the back coverage was perfect so I was happy over all with the 18. I will say this- the straps are long, and were slipping at times throughout the day. It would have been nice if the straps were adjustable so that it would prevent the slippage.
I finished off my look with another cool headwrap from the Wrap Life and bold red sunnies. The wrap is called Tembi, and this is one of my favorite wraps. The bold color brings out the best in any outfit I wear. If you love a good head wrap and don't like to shy away from color, get the Tembi. You will not be disappointed.
As for the event, me and my blogger boo's had so much fun. Stay tuned for my next post with all of the beautiful ladies from Curlfest. Later lovers!!
