Black and White, and The yellow turban!!

Hello my friends!!

So summer is absolutely fantastic so far! And, as you all know by now I live in color.

So on this bright summer day I decided to put together an outfit that had many layers.

First I mixed colors; shocking yellow skirt and black and white gingham shirt!

Second, I mixed patterns; black and white checked shirt and zebra patterned belt!

Third, I rocked a bright yellow turban! This is a daring fashion accessory that can hype any outfit to the next level.

To round it all off, I casually showcased my light blue nylon backpack that encourages us to “THRIVE” and not just survive!

I know that this might be a bit overwhelming for some, but take a fashion risk and try something new, add color, mix patterns and always, always thrive!

A little color can go a long way!

Philippians 4:13 says, I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.

Color Central! Join the color movement this season!

Hello old and new friends!

It’s been a while since we last visited with each other, please forgive my absence.

But today I come bearing lots of colors! As the season transitioned from cold to warm, our outfits should also change from sad darks to happy brights!

With this in mind, green was my color of choice.

I wore this outfit two ways; shirt out with simple sunglasses, then I switched it up a bit by tucking in my shirt and rocking red dramatic sunnies!

Wide red belt coupled with shocking pink heeled sandals completed the look! I feel ready for the sunshine, and you can too!

If you are not bold enough yet to go totally bright, color it up with your accessories, and just know that they don’t have to match.

Just do it your color way!

Proverbs 21:21 whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor

Long sleeve sweater and chic boots, welcome to Fall!

Hello my friends!

Well, the warm weather is leaving and the cooler temperature is coming in, and as reluctant as I am to say bye to Summer, I am actually looking forward to the new season and the cold weather fashions!

As a prelude to the new season, on this cool day I had to pull out the long sleeves and boots.

Of course I had to make it interesting so I wore my favorite monochromatic look! (I totally enjoy wearing my outfits this way).

Head to toe in the fall color, Burgundy, I chose a neon pink belt to add a pop of color and add some “happy” to the outfit.

I know the cold season outfits can be a bit dull and boring, but they absolutely do not have to be.

You can use accessories to color it up! Scarves, hats, belts, boots and bags can all add life and color to any dull winter wardrobe!

XOXO

A dress yesterday, a skirt today, fabulous every way!

Hello my friends!

I miss you all! I must admit my mood is shifting a tiny bit as we are nearing the end of summer.

None the less, I wanted to share with you this wonderful piece of clothing just chilling  in my closet.

So I bought this piece at a really low sale price from “Joe fresh” over 5 years ago! I thought it was a fierce piece, but I never found the right occasion to unveil it.

Recently I pulled it out, and dusted it off and in my quest to find an appropriate way to style this rich looking item, I discovered I can wear it two ways!

I rocked it like a sundress with neon sneakers, and I also rocked it like a cool maxi skirt with pink chuck taylors!

Check out my pics below and you decide which way you like best, I get the pleasure of double dipping!

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.

Delightful day to love on the summer white, with a dash of blue!

Hey all! Missed chatting with you!

So today was an absolute summer day! I was hot and at times sweaty, but since I am an island born chick (Grenadian born) I was loving every moment of it!

I decided that it was time to start rocking my summer white, and I went all the way with it.

My floor sweeping white jersey skirt with my blue cotton shirt (I love shirts) was my outfit of choice.

To add an edge to my outfit, I tied my blue scarf around my head and let the ends flow freely down my shoulders!

You can always expect colors from my outfits, don’t be afraid to try it, be bold!

Purple reign!

via Daily Prompt: Patience

I am so over winter!

My patience is shot and I am jonesing for the season of warm sunshine, well actually any temperature over 60 degrees will do!

So in an effort to pacify my impatience, I pulled out my wedding pics from my niece fabulous wedding last summer and I’m sharing them with you all. (bonus pic of my family)

By now it should be crystal clear that color plays a major role in my wardrobe, that’s why I opted for this purple jumpsuit.

Enjoy !!!!

Shoes indeed!

via Daily Prompt: Suddenly

So it suddenly dawned on me while contemplating what my next post would be that an outfit is only as strong as the shoes worn with it!

Of course we each have different taste and individual style, so our shoes will be a reflection of that. Our mood, the season and our destination will also determine our shoe pick; formal or casual, winter or summer, trendy or classic, daytime or night time.

The beautiful thing is the variety of choices we have when it comes to footwear; boots vs. shoes, heels vs. flats, sandals vs. pumps, bright color vs. basic, and the list goes on and on………..

Check out four of my outfits and the footwear I chose to rock with them, enjoy!

ps. always, always have pedicured toes whenever you are wearing open toe shoes!

Shoes indeed!

Colors, Colors, Colors

via Daily Prompt: Fact

I am often intrigued by the different cultures that makes up our world, and the various style of clothing that are considered fashionable.

In some countries or regions fashion is enhanced by jewelry, others by face painting and in other regions by headwraps and scarves.

The fact is, we are all different, but in every culture there is the use of color that makes both traditional and trendy outfits come alive!

Lets face it, colorful expression is one of the common threads that connects us all to each other.

Lets take a trip around the world in color!

Our world in color

 

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
