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.

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

Just loving this simple shorts with fabulous high heels!

Hey All,

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!

Meet my latest fashion expression, the kimono! Hello!

Hello my friends!

Lately I’ve been seeing this new fashion trend everywhere, but I had yet to try it.

I must admit I have been crushing on the kimono, but I was not sure how to rock it.

But as things turned out, I was gifted a full length white kimono a few weeks ago! It is really cool with words all over it, in beautiful summer cotton material.

I had to rock it! So with my neon pink trousers and a white Old Navy tank top, I bravely stepped out!

I absolutely enjoyed this outfit! It was all that I hoped it would be, I felt elegant, cool and Asian at the same time.

Check out my pics, let me know what you think!

Just enjoying Brooklyn, on a sensational Summer Sunday!

Hello my friends!

So I spent the past week in Brooklyn, NY mainly visiting my family and friends, and it was fantastic!

New York is a fabulous city that has endless inspiration, places to see and things to do! Since I lived there for quite a number of years, I was in familiar territory.

I did a little socializing, a little shopping and a lot of eating carribean food while enjoying family and reconnecting with one of my favorite cousin/sister/friend.

While getting new shoes for my boys, I had the pleasure of encountering not just a typical New Yorker, but an exceptional one, he was rocking amazing neon yellow hair!

I was totally captivated by his hair, so I just had to take a pic to share with you!

As expected, I could not leave Brooklyn without capturing the vibe, so with bright red jogger pants, simple white tshirt and baby blue pumps I rocked out!

Remember to live your life in color!

enjoy xoxo!

An excitingly bold, Yellow day!

Hello my friends!

I have not posted in a couple weeks, it was raining, and raining, and raining!

So today the sun was shining in all of its glory and I was inspired to don my favorite color, from top to bottom!

I know right! to some folks it may be a lot of brightness, but I always take chances with my outfits.

You see, I’m quite comfortable with color. In fact, I cannot imagine living life in black and white.

So today, while in a place of gratitude to GOD and all he is doing in my life, I wanted to reflect outside what I was feeling inside, and I picked my happiness color, Yellow!

My delight is in the Lord!

Amazing Spring day, rocking an oldie but goodie, love it!

via Daily Prompt: Sleeve

So finally today felt like Spring!

I was beside myself because I could actually feel the sun on my skin. My mood was happy and I wanted my outfit to reflect that.

So I reached wayyyy into the back of my closet and pulled out this oldie but goodie polka dot piece, and to my surprise, it fit!!

(Sidebar: The dress is actually over 10 years old! I wore it to my baby shower for my oldest son who is turning 11 this summer)

And of course, I coupled it with my favorite color long sleeve sweater, and hot pink lace-up flats.

I really, really enjoyed this outfit, because it is warm enough to comfortably wear dresses.

Check out the pics, let me know what you think!

Double-duty with your Spring scarf!

via Daily Prompt: Frantic

So it feels like Spring 2018 has finally sprung, and we absolutely need to look like it!

With that said, the scarf is an under-rated accessory that us ladies should put a bit if energy into.

For myself it serves several purposes, and I have pics below showing you two of the ways I used the same scarf.

It all started one day when in a frantic, desperate effort to cover a major bad hair day, I grabbed my animal print scarf and wrapped my hair. I really don’t know where that inspiration came from because  I had only used it as a neck scarf.

I was pleasantly surprised by how chic it looked and from then on my scarves have been doing double duty, head wrap and neck scarf.

Check out the pics below, let me know if you like it!
