Upgrades....

Ya’ll seen me rock the bomber time again, and I do love the classic look, I recently witnessed the power of throwing on a duster by accident. In an attempt to wear a spaghetti dress to a friend’s shower while combating the rain, I threw on this pink version of the jacket before heading to the party. What started out as just a Hail Mary turned out to be an amazing outfit, I felt amazing!  

I actually felt as though I was wearing my own superhero cape guys! 

Duster:  Avec Les Filles  (got the duster a while ago, it’s not online but there’s an alternative)  Dress:  Forever 21   Shoes:  Melissa Shoes

Got the hair did as well, it’s been bugging me how to elevate my look for a while and the folks over at Napp Star hooked it up with a drink, updated dye job, and this unique side braid.  

While it didn’t feel like spring, I wanted to have a natural glow, Glam by V didn’t disappoint. I’m usually very “safe” when it comes to hair and make up it was rad to let the legit professionals play around with my look. It’s another way for me to learn how to let go and stop overthinking and do it!  :)

Planning more outfit posts for the spring, well given Mother Nature it will probably go straight to summer ha ha! It’s great to be blogging again!

Anyone else did a major update to their look recently? Do tell!

I see spots

The classic leopard print has been a must have in my closet. It's been such an easy choice when your outfit needs a little something extra, plus, with the right styling, you can wear it anywhere.  

I have been a fan for years, I mean Catwoman is one of muses haha, def a no brainer.... Here are few snaps:

Best of all, the print can be incorporated into most looks.  Don't think it's just a fall staple, it can actually be worn on the summer too. Check out my favorite picks: 

I upped my leopard game by purchasing these babies by Giuseppe Zanotti. I got them at Eleven C Boutique in Park Slope, which is seriously one of the best designer consignment shops in the city.   It was a mix of Birthday/graduation/you really deserve these shoes Kos 😂.  Stoked to rock them for summer and beyond!

Does anyone else have their "go to" print/style? Please share!

Into The Mind: Spring Essentials

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?
