Lavender and Floral

Good Morning Loves!

Hoping you all had a blessed weekend! Is it me or did it feel like this weekend just flew by? Hmmmph!! 

Today I wore my lavender midi skirt which I purchased from Asos a few months ago. I chose to play up the soft feminine color and feel of this skirt by pairing it with a floral blouse and a nude sandal. Don't be afraid to wear pastel's in the summer, they're not only meant for spring time. I'd actually transition this skirt into my fall wear, as well. Simply by pairing it with a darker top, leather jacket, and a pair of pumps or booties.  Hope you Enjoy! XOXO

Full Ankara Print Skirt

Good Evening Lovelies,

So, it's no secret that Ankara print and full skirts have been some of my favorite items this season. This skirt is perfection in my book, as it's the perfect blend of the two. So, about this skirt......I arrived home one day to find a lovely package at my doorstep. Inside the package(with no note or return address) was three gorgeous ankara print skirts! It is still a mystery who sent them to me. So, a HUGE THANK-YOU to whoever gifted the skirts to me!!!!! I love them all and am so appreciative of your thoughtfulness/generosity.   :-)

 Let's discuss how extremely dry my hair has been this summer!!!!! Ughhh! I've tried everything...from coconut oil, moroccan oil, to good ole' hair grease! Anyone have any suggestions?

Boho Chic-Cropped

Greetings Loves!!

This weekend a couple of ladies and I got together for a ladies night/day in NYC! I absolutely needed this mini getaway. My life has been absolutely insane this summer and I really needed a moment to get away and do something completely mindless. For dinner we visited the Sugar Factory in the Meatpacking district, this was my first time eating here and it was a great time! It was a little on the pricey side but the drinks were really delish. The food was pretty good too. We also walked the High Line, which I never heard of until recently. It was beautiful and quite scenic. 

On to what I wore.....So as I get older I have learned to embrace and love all of me, the good and the bad! As women we are always so hard on ourselves, due to several factors( a huge one being the societal norms of what "beauty" is) but I will not get into my thoughts regarding that. All my life I have NEVER been happy with my body, even when I was a size 4 and a size 6! I was always aiming for perfection and quite frankly, it's unrealistic. So, with that being said.....Yes, I placed my size 8( more like a size 10 these days), round frame into a crop top and showed a bit of skin! A bold move for me,  but as I stated, I am learning to love and appreciate the woman I am, inside and out. Do I strive to adopt a healthier lifestyle, of course! But until I get there, I will embrace all stages of the process. :-)  Apologies regarding the photo quality of some of the pics (they were taken with an iphone), as well as the awkward poses...time wasn't on my side in getting a sufficient amount of shots! :-(
