When life give you limes...wait-- when has life given us limes or lemons for that matter? I can tell you what it has given me, metaphors about food that reflect how we handle hard times.Enough already! Sorry, sorry, so sorry please forgive me.I am hungry.I'm pregnant .I'm always hungry,lemme go eat real quick.
Ok, I'm back! That hunger is no joke guys! So where was I? Oh yea , food;the limes. The perfect garnish to any summer beverage (I miss drinking...7 more months!) and its color its just as pleasing in dress form.I have never been too keen on green, but this summer I am changing that.I'm always here for Olive (of course),but bright green is such a fun and festive color and brings so much life.Green has always been the color associated with earthy, natural, fresh, and the idea of being reborn.Being with child, I'd say this color was made for me.
Instead of taking my twists out , like I planned in a blind rage, I opted to wrap them up courtesy of Shop Fe-line.My citrus-hued Ankara head wrap was the perfect accessory to accent my dress and keep me from passing out under my long ass twists (that I now regret doing in the HEEEEAAATT of the summer).My wrap is sold out but I have picked out some other fab head pieces to keep your hair off your neck this hell season-- err I mean Summer.
I live in the South and on a nice day in the Summer, its a bearable thousand degrees.Instead of going butt-naked, like I planned before the "knocking up" , I'm doing the next best thing.Showing shoulder and clavicle is all I got right now while I beef up (uummmm food).This off the shoulder dress is the perfect length and the perfect hue to pop against my melanin.I'm glowing out in these streets!!

What accessories go with a sunny citrus palette? Well if its against brown skin, then the answer is brown of course.My brown gladiator sandals are 1,000 years old from GoJane and I practically stole them for $7.50.I paired them with my leather Selma Michael Kors purse.Speaking of MK, did you hear they just bought the luxury shoe line Jimmy Choo? Chile , lemme just shut my over-mass produced ,reduced-quality,over-saturated-basic-handbag-having-ass up.
My leather choker along with my gold earring really seal this deal.My choker is from the company 4everunicornfashion.Fun Fact: I was asked to be the face of their company and I said YES!! Not only do they sell amazing chokers , but other accessories like shoes, belts,swimsuits, glitter tights, and other body jewelry.
