Why You Need This Vest This Fall

Gorgeous In Grey Lace Shirt Long Black Vest IMG_0055-lo

For the longest time I had been looking for a longline vest…with pockets! I saw one on ASOS but of course I didn’t get it (now, I think it’s restocked). I was gifted this black longline vest from Forever 21 when I did the EBONY shoot.

Surprisingly when I got it I wasn’t quick to wear it. Partly because I just didn’t know what to pair with it. When I wore it on the EBONY shoot it was over top of a really short shirt dress. I have yet to wear that either.

Somehow I figured out how to dress up those mom jeans. I even learned a cute way to tie up my plaid shirts so that it would fit tight around my wide waist—just like my skinnier friends. But I never wanted to show off too much of my body. I’ll blame my mother for that.

4 Reasons Why I am IN LOVE (Like Seriously) With These #AvaAndViv Denim Jeans From #TargetStyle

I’ve walked past this mural on the way to the Target a thousand times. It’s surrounded by familiar neighborhood finds like the bodega with the best $3 sandwiches ever, the Target (duh I just said that), the infamous Dallas BBQs and the winos shamelessly begging for your spare change (sir, there’s NO such thing). I never stopped until today. I’m thinking finding this mural was the world’s way of reminding me of all the gems we can find in the most unsuspecting places.
