In case you didn’t have the time to prepare for fall, I got you! So excited to bring back the lookbooks and focus on 3 ways to slay this fall.

Atira Lyons in her Melrose Avenue Store - Entrepeneur

This pandemic isn’t stopping the 20 year old entrepeneur as she just secured a 8,000 square feet warehouse for her apparel business featuring luxurious durags and bikinis. View this post on Instagram I just got my keys… I’m too hype!!! Imma ride this business out til the wheels fall off.

Full Body Circuit

I love full body workouts because it’s an easy way to target different parts of the body and get toned quicker. Instead of dedicating specific days for my arms, legs, core etc, I make sure that various parts of my body are targeted for each workout. Because I love documenting my exercises, its only right that I share a full body workout thats been so great for me. Swipe through the post below to check out the full body workout.

Tan Bathing Suit

I wish I can wear a bathing suit or a bikini every day. They’re so comfortable and for some reason, immediately makes me feel super relaxed. I love this bathing suit so much that it wasn’t until it shipped to my home that I realized that its the exact same bathing suit I wore for my birthday last year. One of my good friends, Laneesha Ford is the founder of Cali Swim. When she decided to name a bathing suit after me, I knew I had to have it. So…

Is Crushed Velvet Still A Thing?

It feels like every girl has a mini velvet dress in her closet. At one point, velvet dresses were quite the trend but things have changed a bit. Although it’s no longer trending, it’s hard to find a girl without a velvet piece that she loves hanging up in her room. When I bought this dress, I knew it would be perfect for a night out. As the world is still in a pandemic, I’m currently not partaking in night outings but its definitely great for a cute evening. Is…

Can We Still Wear Bandeaus + Short Skirts?

Happy September! At this point, many are yearning for jackets, blazers, sweaters and beyond! I’m still loving a good 2 piece set (or creating one by monochroming). Some may wonder if we can still wear bandeaus and short skirts and the answer is yes! Its not cold yet. Although our air conditioning is not at an all-time high anymore, the weather is at such a perfect temperature that whether we go for a bandeau or a long sleeve top, the body still feels just right. I paired an orange skirt…

The Bathing Suit You Need For Staycations and Vacations

I recently discovered Asherah Swim and I’m completely in love! This week we’re talking about swimwear because summer started late so why not be prepped and ready for your next staycation/vacation with chic swim! I’m excited to bring back Befitting Picks with a fab bikini! Not only is Asherah a fabulous black-owned brand providing swimwear but Cheryl “Cejae” Jones also designs athletic wear for the brand. I am currently in love with the Henna Bikini! With the bottom and the top meeting perfectly at the small of the waist, you…

White Floral Sheer Casuals

I kept it casual in a white floral sheer dress paired with high waist shorts. Full transparency: Having a love/dislike relationship with this dress keeps me from wearing it. I initially paired it with a blue shirt dress a couple of years ago while at New York Fashion Week and I got to wear it again this summer but this time as a top. Sometimes, a difference in size can really make a break an item. Its wayyy too big for a size medium and I should have stuck to…

25 Bathing Suits and Bikinis Under $25

We’re back at it with Befitting Steals where I share affordable ways for you to look your best! This week’s Befitting Steal is all about bikinis and bathing suits so I rounded up 25 bathing suits and bikinis under $25. With the pandemic affecting the entire world, it feels like summer started late for everyone. Although a lot of us are still proceeding with caution in all that we do, heading out for anything more than a grocery store visit seemed foreign during June. I recently shared my picks of…

Yellow Floral Maxi Skirt

What I love most about maxi skirts is that they’re so easy to wear. Not only is it a fun summer staple but it can add elegance to many fall looks. I plan on sharing different ways to wear maxi skirts so stay tuned for that. In the mean time, lets chat about this yellow floral maxi skirt paired with an orange bandeau. For some reason, bandeaus are my go-to during the summer. At this point, I’m just looking for reasons to wear bandeaus. We still have about 30 days…
