One of the things I’ve made it a point to do is make my girls feel empowered about their hair. In a world where naturally curly hair among Black women and girls is only just approaching the realm of mainstream, it is important to me that they know they are beautiful just the way they are. So when I discover a clothing brand designed specifically to help me do that? Yes, please, and thank you!
A few weeks ago, I entered Juliza in a giveaway from FroBabies, an account specifically created to empower and celebrate children with naturally curly or kinky hair. Well, she won one of their fabulous t-shirts, and I couldn’t wait to style her in it!
As you can see, it took all of about 5 seconds for her to get into photo-ready form. Juliza really is quite the character, and I love her for it.
I styled her hair in a frohawk, and I dare say it is my favorite hairstyle on her, ever.
Seriously, how cute is that?! Swoon!
Anyway, I paired her super cute tee with a pair of jeggings from Carter’s that she’s had for a while. I decided to try my hand at shredding and distressing them. The result was far from perfect, but it was really cute! I’m going to practice on an old pair of jeans so I can do a better job next time.
We also got a pair of Timberland work boots recently, because they’re the perfect study baby shoes, they’re fly as hell and they go with everything.
I can already tell this t-shirt is going to be in strong rotation this summer, and we’ll be buying another when she sizes out of it. I love the message behind the brand, and I can’t wait to see more from them! I’m more than happy to have Juliza wear it proudly.
