3-Ways-To-Slay-This-Fall-Befitting-Style-Fall-Lookbook-1-1

Is it me or did the fall season just come out of nowhere?! Because of the pandemic, it feels like we went from winter to summer (skipping spring), then the temperatures drastically changed from 90 to 65 degrees. 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. Whether you’re stepping out for a few hours or having a casual time with friends, step into this Phillip Lim Utility Jumpsuit…

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…

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…

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…

Pink Bathing Suit

I didn’t know what else to title this blog post without calling it what it is. A pink bathing suit. LOL. With hotel prices at an all-time low and flights being cheaper than an uber, some are taking advantage of what could be the only time they could experience an excursion at such a low cost. This week I want to dive into swimwear as well as other summer looks because lets face it! Whether a pandemic is going on or not, its still summer and we’re still going to…

20 Things I No Longer Buy

Reevalution is always necessary in life so here are 20 things I no longer buy. I just realized that its usually minimalists that create posts like this. I am far from being a minimalist. I love having a vast variety of things. I also enjoy being a woman with strong will as it makes it easy for me to stop doing anything that I decide to cut out of my life. Before checking out the items I no longer buy, support the organizations fighting inequality by checking out this national…

Are We Back To Brunching? – Pink Summer Dress

To brunch or not to brunch while still keeping safe in quarantine is quite a decision. I think its still important to quarantine and deciding whether you should pertake in brunch is highly dependent on your location. In some cities, its perfectly fine to brunch (as long as you have your mask on of course), while other cities are experiencing a tighter shutdown with increasing numbers of those testing positive for the virus. I’m choosing to brunch but only with those who have been in quarantine. Its only right that…

Stepping Out in Yellow High Waist Wide Culottes

I stepped out in these yellow high waist wide culottes! I finally stepped out (for real for real) for the first time after being in quarantine since mid-march. I’m not open to going out as much as I used to but its definitely refreshing to see people I love after not seeing most of my loved ones for so long. I’ve been loving wearing yellow a lot lately and this look is no exception. Its always been important for me to keep it bright regardless of how I feel. If…
