Prepping for FireFly

You guys, rain is predicted for the weekend. The weekend in which I spend three days outdoor for the first time. ::GULP::


I am in no means a girly girl and can adapt really well to changes, but let's be honest... I'm a city girl. The moment I start to lose my ease of convenience and running water - all hell breaks lose in my mind. Quietly though.

Knowing what lies ahead I can prepare for the elements: heat, rainstorm, and late nights. First order of business is taking these curls and transforming them into double dutch braids. How I love double dutch braids - they make everyone look so bad-ass.

My neighborhood is filled with some of the best braiding spots but I didn't think ahead and book an appointment (womp womp). With no time to lose all of yesterday was spent researching the beauty apps, services and prices (cause girlfriend needs to save). Priv and beGlammed were my top contenders but in the end I booked a beGlammed appointment - Priv doesn't offer braided styles. The ease and convenience of having someone come straight to my home... well that's something I can get used to.

As for clothing I'm going with this rain coat from J. Crew, probably my smartest purchase of the year, and lightweight dresses. This Tobi dress feels like I'm wearing clouds and whenever there's a breeze, it's breezes everything up and underneath the dress. In other words it's perfect for the high temps and day-long music fests.

I'm not one to wear uncomfortable shoes when out all day, so rain boots are a no-go for me. Instead I'm packing my Doc Martens for the mud, cause there will be mud, there is always mud. With that being said, follow my adventures on Instagram or Snapchat (username is thestyleboro).
