A couple of weeks ago, I engaged in some random gardening after returning from someplace I can't remember. It' tough work! It looks like fun and it can be (oh can it be fun!) but after about 20 minutes of pulling up weeds and whatnot, you're just ready to sit down and have some lemonade. If I had planned to garden, I wouldn't have put on this outfit but it happened ...organically, if you will. Don't the best things happen organically? My hair's in a lop sided faux bang (why does it do that?!) and the rest of my hair was nicer when I first went out but after a little while, it got a bit disheveled (pic 2).
Anywho, it was bright out that day which was nice.

The Retro Natural is the first natural hair blog dedicated to styling naturally textured hair in retro styles. This blog was created as a means to establish a virtual playground, if you will, where women with natural or highly textured hair can obtain tips and tricks when attempting to style their hair in styles mainly from the 30s, 40s and 50s. There's also a little about style, food, vintage cars, and beauty tips. Many people know me from my YouTube channel, CurlyChronicles, which was created to show how I care for my natural hair. This is an extension of that :)
I also love the style of clothing worn by those who lived way before my time and enjoy "dressing to the nines" as they say!
