“The Island” Treasure and Beauty!

Hey friends!!!

In my last post I asked you to “stay tuned” so now I will continue sharing with you the fabulousness of my homeland Grenada.

On this excursion I visited a tiny island directly of Grenada named Hog Island, and boy was it beautiful!

You see, during my childhood days several families from our village used to take trips to “The Island”.

There was cooking, games, fishing, swimming, exploring and just plain old fun!!

So going back was sort of euphoric and nostalgic for me, and it did not disappoint! It is still a treasure to behold! Nature’s beauty at its best, and bright tropical colors everywhere!

I took pics of the absolutely breathtaking views and scenes.

Please, enjoy!!

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice!

Just a simple happy day dress, chic summer styling!

Hello to all of my friends!

We are smack in the middle of summer, and I am thinking it is going by way too fast!

I often like to wear as much cute summer outfits as summer will let me, but I am not so much of a dress girl, so I am intentionally adding more dresses to my wardrobe.

So, I decided to wear this blue maxi dress, that is so light and airy and fun to wear. It is a blue shade that works with almost any skin tone, and I paired it with my hot pink lace up flats that I love so much.

I absolutely enjoyed this outfit! my only concern was the wind blowing it up and showing all the business (lol), but I added the white sunglasses to up the chic game a bit.

So to my ladies, do not be afraid to mix your colors! Color infuses life with sparks of happiness, mix boldly!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Pale pink, chiffon and warm sunshine, I’m Spring happy actually!

I’m sure many of you will agree with me that as the weather gets warmer our mood gets happier!

So, on this sixty something degrees Spring day, I was feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

I picked out my soft pink chiffon blouse and paired it with my wide leg light denim trousers. Hot pink flats rounded out the ensemble.

My head wrap I coordinated with my outfit, (sidebar: I’m stuck on my hair dilemma – to perm or continue on my natural hair journey) dusted off and rocked my pink sunglasses, an absolute fav of mine!

So to all my ladies getting ready to rock this Spring and Summer, remember to add color to your outfit, could be a little or a lot!

Working on the winter blues

Girl! I am soooo tired of the cold weather, and I am seriously jonesing for some warmth and color!

After spending months wearing winter darks, I decided to go completely left and colorize my out fit.

I started with bright cobalt blue tights and constructed two very cool outfits around it. I know it was a stretch but I wanted to push myself and see where the color took me.

The day was warmish so I wore knee length jeans and sneakers. I also dabbled with another outfit centered around my fabulous blue tights and grey jersey skirt.

I know all my ladies will not be so brave, but if you dare to be, join me in the pursuit of life in color!

ps. my tights came from Old Navy

Summer, Sweet Summer…..


Hey all!!! Summer is Here
!!!!!

I absolutely and completely LOVE Summer!

Pretty sundresses, bright colors everywhere, sunshine daily, flip flops and ice cream are some of the things that make this season my fav!

So on this bright summer Wednesday I mustered up enough courage to rock my TuTu. Not just any TuTu, a bright cobalt blue one!IMG_5852

The biggest decision was what shirt to wear with it, so I eventually narrowed my options down to a tee shirt and a neon cotton shirt, and took pics of both looks for you to check out. To jazz it up a tad, I knotted the front of both shirts, yes maam.

Honestly, I love both looks!

And can we talk about the colors… I know coupling bright blue with neon pink may seem a bit risky, but its a fashion risk I am willing to take. As you may have figured out by now, I live my life in color, with zero apologies!

So, my brave fashionistas, let’s rock our colors any which way we please this summer!

PS:  You can turn this look all the way up with heels, or turn it all the way down with sneakers. Cute flats settles it right in the middle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tights have it!…..in Pink

Untitled designWinter is still here and I tried to lighten the winter blues by injecting bright pink colored tights into my wardrobe, and I loved it!!

This particular day it was almost sixty degrees in February, so I broke out the denim shorts and coupled it with an oversized sweater and pink tights!

Another outfit, in a monochromatic moment I opted for grey jersey skirt and added grey sweater and again rocked my pink tights! (sidebar; you can swap out the flat boots for heeled boots and formalize the look)

Ladies we can still be cute even when its cold outside!

Of course this look may not be for the faint of heart, but for those of us who think outside the wardrobe, it is smashing!

ps. I matched my lipstick to my tights…..

Color pick me up….

We are now heading into the meat of winter and the days ahead are looking colder and colder.

So, I thought a preview of brighter warmer days would be the perfect winter pick me up we all need right now!
