How's everyone's Spring so far? Mines has been rad! Re-adjusting to the extra time and having more sleep, soaking in the sun, dodging showers, planning trips, updating scripts, connecting with brands, and spending time with loved ones. With that being said, a lot has been on my mind, and I'm looking forward to the following Spring essentials to get me though spring! Aviators with a pop of color, the new Kendrick Lamar album #fire btw, upping my health/beauty game and partnering up with a boxing class (post on that in the next month!).
I'm stoked for this white denim jacket by Edit, I can tell that will be my staple that will stay with me until September. White denim used to scare the #bleep out of me but there is something very modern, crisp, and clean about the color white. I think it's the New Yorker's solution from wearing black in the summer but hesitant to wearing color (points to self) white offers a solution and balance.
Speaking of "balance" who saw the new Star Wars trailer?! LIT! My niece Akua attended celebration this past weekend in Orlando and snapped the BB8 bookbag from Loungefly (thanks Qui). Their entire Star Wars collection #nails it! The BB8 bookbag will be my weekend bag for sure!
I am a die hard Bob's Burgers fan! One of my favorite meme's is Tina Belcher dressed up as Queen Bey. To see that Funko created a figurine based on it gave me so much life! My friend's and I collect Funko's from different fandom's for years. Bey/Tina is perfect to add to the collection.
The mules from Stuart Weitzman are an excellent investment piece! A summer shoe that can be worn work, drinks with friend's, vacation, or date night. Heel appropriate and comfortable af (I'm about to be 33 that is more important to me than looking 6 ft tall).
As I get order I rather save the extra $$ on accessories that can carry me into different occasions (a gal's closet is but so big! ha ha). What I also love about mules is that you can add anklets to any outfit much easier and not have to worry about if the anklet conflicts with any hardware from the shoe. When I was a child, I used to play with my older sisters anklets lol in the 90s everything is coming back to the 90s.
Speaking of workwear, I even considered doing a "uniform route" as I read in this Harper's Bazaar article a few years ago, heck it worked for Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. I also do work from home most so it is it something to try with the extra time...right? Nah! Who am I kidding haha, maybe create a capsule collection that consists of 5-6 items that are items to create the perfect "work" uniform. We will see, def a rad topic to put in a post in the near future!
What is on everyone's mind nowadays?
