Trenching through the cold!

I absolutely LOVE trench coats!

In an effort to combat my winter blues, wearing coats and scarves that I like makes the cold days a bit more bearable.

The trusted trench coat does it for me. I rock different lengths, styles and textures, but I wanted to show you my favorite one.

I love everything about this Kenneth Cole trench that I had for quite a few years, but still looks good every season because of its retro, timeless vibe.

I love the knee length, and I paired it with a floor length pair of wide legged, dark denim trousers, along with brown boots in the same color family.

Of course you can rock your trench in a length that suits you, and pair it with trousers for a polished look, or with jeans for a more casual look.

Let me know your preference, and thanks for watching! xoxo

Black anyone???

When I was younger I was not a fan of wearing black because I thought it was such a boring color that made me look way too thin.

However, as I matured and my fashion taste expanded, I dibbled and dabbled in wearing black, and now I am confident enough to wear an entire black outfit.

So, I wore this outfit to a semi-formal day event, but you can tweek it any which way you like!

Of course I had to incorporate some color so I wore dark red shoes, and to take it up a few notches, I matched my lip color to my shoes!

Check out my pics below, let me know if you like them! xoxo

Always, Brooklyn!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Christmas and Summer are my two favorite times of the year! I hope that all had a wonderful holiday season, and for this new year my wish for you is Peace, and my suggestion for absolute peace is Prayer.

O.K with that being said, I want to share my Christmas vacation with you! As you may have guessed, I visited my old stomping ground, Brooklyn NY, and as always Brooklyn did not disappoint, we had a great holiday!

It’s amazing the way being surrounded by family, good Caribbean food and friends can quickly alter your plans (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse). My boys who were reluctant to make the trip, were asking to say an extra day, so we stayed an extra day.

We visited our old church and stepped right into the beat just as if we had not left. I loaded up on my Caribbean foods (oxtails, callaloo, rice and peas, fried fish, curry goat, sweet potatoes, black cake and sorrel, yes lots of sorrel!)

Because I had to pack for my family, I had to limit the amount of outfits I could carry for myself, so I accessorized with scarves and  headbands and kept it basic with long sleeve t-shirts and jeans.

All in all Christmas in Brooklyn was all I hoped it would be and more, and we can’t wait to go back this Spring break and Summer (God’s willing).

In my next post you will experience my New York City adventure!
