After my breakdown and coming to terms with 29, I can say I finally feel good about a lot of things.However the stress from overthinking every aspect of my life has me tired.I need a vacay.I'm thinking Cuba...maybe? Yes, Cuba!
Moms be like: "Now when we get in this store, you betta not ask for nothing! We got snacks at home!"
The 'mean mom mug' pictured below is a universal glare felt by all children worldwide in the depths of their souls, before they enter the marketplace, grocery store, gas station, Wal-Mart, and any damn store.My grandmother gave this look to my mom, my mom gave it to me, and now (in the spirit of tradition) I give my daughter this same look.
"No, you can not have no damn candy.You just ate!"
There's a new style sheriff in town. It's me. Here to tell you not put away those shorts just yet. The onset on colder weather means pulling out all the heavy artillery, but it's also the time for layering.
To all my hip cats and cool daddyo's this is for you! There is a saying "there is nothing new under the sun", which is so true especially in fashion which pretty much is cycle. Even though we are smack-dab middle of the 2010's we are obsessing over all things vintage. This year we are totally submerged in the 70's.From rompers to fringe ,suede, stacked heels, skinny ties and the list goes on of major funky style that has made its way back into our closets or there for the 1st time. Mini dresses have stood the test of time and definitely elongate the legs.
Since the days are getting cooler, add some funk to your look with over the knee socks and stacked heel for supa fly style! Button downs ,whether long or short, are a classic that can be worn a million ways. I decided to pair a button down with my mini denim jumper, and added a skinny bowtie as the perfect accessory. Fedoras have made their way into many closets this year ....including yours truly. Hats are a great way to 'top' off a look and make a bold statement. There are many styles of hats to fit any fancy. Personally, I'm pretty obsessed with all of them right now! (*cue "I aint got not type" ) No outfit is complete without a nice bag to flaunt. Buckets bags are so on trend right now, ranging from minis to back packs, and even bigger styles. Fall is the perfect time to definitely add textures into your look so I decided my suede mini bucket bag would fair nicely. My lucky rabbit's foot keychain meshed well with the retro them. Vests are wonderful layering piece that can add both dimension and different textures to your look. They can also elongate the torso too (make sure not to get a vest that cuts off your midsection)!
The lovely Chakayla Taylor of www.stylishlydecadent.com came through serving with a suede skirt accented by a fringe top and perfectly fitting head wrap...p.s. she is always slaying the head wrap game.

What a beautiful Sunday it is!! I hope everyone is enjoying this glorious day! Sunday's style was inspired by a classic silhouette ,the A-line floor length skirt. I modernized the look by adding a criss-cross crop top , and added a straw fedora and wooden bead bag for summer styling. Accessories were kept to a minimum to let the ensemble do the talking ,but I did decide to pull my black Christian Louboutin D'orsays for the heck of it.Enjoy :)
