Palazzo Pants

Greetings Loves!!!

I was happy to stumble upon these pants in Marshall's last year. There are several things I love about them, the first being the illusion they give of me having hips. I have spoken before about my "lovely" rectangle shape which I am learning to embrace. :-) Ironically, I have friends who absolutely hate their hips, while I'm over here wishing I had some. We always want what we don't have, right? Anywho, I also love the chevron print and the fact that they can be worn summer, spring and fall! For Fall wear, pairing these pants with a black or cognac leather jacket would be so chic. They are also suitable for work attire, in which they can be styled with a white or black collar shirt and with or without a blazer. Needless to say, I'm sure these pants will be making another appearance on the blog for the upcoming season.

This is what I wore to a birthday get together for my girl Khaleeqa. She's a fab fitness guru and a true woman of God. Check her blog out here for daily fitness and spiritual inspiration. She truly inspires me with her genuine spirit and undeniable love for God!  XOXO
How fab is this Shabby Chic decor?! By the way, she did it all herself! I love a fabulously decorated/themed party!

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?
