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.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice!
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.
This was a very warm day, and though the summer is winding down I was so happy for the opportunity to rock my summer wear!
So I picked out my gold bermuda shorts, and paired it with my mustard yellow satin blouse.
The highlight of this outfit though was the animal print shoe! I always enjoy rocking this shoe because I think it adds flavor to any outfit.
Finally, my burgundy crossbody purse completed the look!
Summer is my favorite season, so I am always sad to see this season end. However, this was a colorful summer for me, and I hope it was for you too!
Walk into the fall in color, boldly!
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Summer is winding down, but I am still in the happy brights mood.
This led me to this brilliant blue outfit! Blue pants, blue shirt and blue sandals. To the conservative woman this may seem as a lot of one color, but I enjoy taking these fashion risks!
I must admit, I was a bit hesitant about the white belt but I am so happy with my choice as it added a bit of contrast to the blue, and it worked!
I knotted my shirt and rocked white framed reflective sunglasses to complete my ensemble!
With that said, ladies take risks with your fashion! Be you and always, always add color! Color breathes life!
Psalms 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
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.
Hello my friends,
Let’s talk about the denim overalls!
This piece takes me all the way back to my childhood, and I’m pretty sure some of you can relate, we each had a pair!
The fun thing is that as a grown up I can own a pair and still rock it well ! Overalls for the most part can be worn casual or you can dress it up if you wish, the choice is yours!
So I totally dressed down my overall. I wore it with white t shirt and bright pink converse. I felt so young and oh so summer cool.
By the way, when I was a child we called this a “farmer brown”.
Check out my pics and enjoy! xoxo
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
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!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven (NIV)
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!
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.
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
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
