TWell look at that, Monday is upon us once again! I hope you all liked my last post about my #DIYD Aquazurra inspired pom pom sandals.I tried to make it as easy as possible. Black is such a wonderful color which is why I did these in black. Black is just everything; elegance ,neutrality, formal, casual...like I said Everything!! I was so excited to put together a look for my latest creations. I opted for a fun yet sultry date night ensemble with somewhat regal influence.
My #DIYD convertible wrap top was giving me all kinds of goddess inspiration , and the black well you know black is just everything. I styled it one shoulder style to bring some sexy back a al Justin Timberlake.The chiffon pleated culottes (Shein.com $8) incorporate both trend and a flowy silhouette, perfect for a night out. To play up on my golden brown skin, I went with gold accessories. I love flash tattoos (too chicken for a real one, don't judge me...or do...I'm notorious punk) so a stuck a few on my shoulder, arm and collarbone. My gold plated belt (Gojane, $7) was a nice touch to compliment my tribal inspired earrings (Romwe.com $3.80) and my gold cuff that I so savagely took from my mom's stash #iaintsorry. My weave patterned clutch (H&M, $5) which resembles a raffia palm in texture provided extra hints and chic yet summer vibes. This bag can easily transition from a day to night clutch as well.

Spring is fast approaching and let me tell you that "Immmm Ready!" *SpongeBob voice. If you live here in NC you will know the weather is severely unpredictable. You can have all four seasons in one week, really! So this post is in anticipation of my fave season, Spring.
I really have never done a pink lip, but I am quite surprised that this Wet N Wild 'Don't Blink Pink' complimented me so well.It can be so hard to find the right pink for brown skin, but I found a winner.Considering the lipstick was only $3 at my local CVS, it was really a no brainer.I was recently inspired by the Aquazurra 'pon pon' ankle tie sandals so I made my own #DIYD (do it ya damn self) version. I have a video coming soon , but I am still editing for now. They were really easy to make and inexpensive as well. These sandals are perfect for more many reasons, not only is 'pom pom' everything trending , but its a great way to revamp old worn old basic sandals. Mine were so beat down and worn I had pretty much given up on them. Because colors in both nature and fashion get more vibrant in Spring, these shoes and lipstick are perfect! My orange clutch from GoJane.com ($8) seemed to be the most fitting accessory as I gear up for brighter, warmer and longer days. I love a good statement clutch. A good one can be an eye grabber and a great conversation piece . I let all my accessories (shoes, bag and lips) do all the shining and let my outfit take a back seat. I kept my look simple and fun. My oversized fuzzy sweater (H&M, 12) was paired with one of my fave pair of jeans. The jeans are thrifted Levi's that I deconstructed myself. The style of the jeans are like mom jeans, but because I revamped them I consider them "step mom" jeans (insert roaring laughter here).
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
