How to Plan a Staycation in New York

How many times have you explored the city that you live in? You know, went somewhere new and just had fun or relaxed without the pressures of checking your inbox for a few hours. Very rarely do we take the time to enjoy moments of pleasure in our own city. I’ve been living in New York for almost four years…

STYLE DIARY: Living Life & Letting Go (Of Spanx LOL)

My new goal for the summer (and in life in general) is to be comfortable. My second goal (and it’s a close second) is to be CUTE! So I’m always on the hunt for pieces that I can (1) wear with sneakers cause I am over heels and (2) slip on and off without fuss. Insert this T Shirt Maxi Dress…

Style Diary: Repeat Offender?… So What!

Typically I don’t repeat looks but my closet isn’t really set up like that so it happens…often. Besides that, when I love a look and I feel like it allows me to “slay the day”, I wanna wear it over and over again. And if it’s comfortable, please believe that it’s being worn a number of times. The same applies…

My obsession with sleeveless coats just got worse…

I’m not sure how this happened. I blame Kela Walker. I normally text my wardrobe choices to her for her approval. She thumbed up all the sleeveless jackets and coats and basically instructed me to buy them all…so I did #KanyeShrug. (I bought this one and this one a few weeks back!) My new closet goal is to buy more sneakers and items…

Spring is almost here but I just wanna wear this one jacket forevah! (in my Cardi B voice)

For so long I thought sleeveless jackets were silly (especially ones that are made with a thicker fabric). That is, until I started having personal summers and realized how thankful I am for the air that causally passes through my arm pits. It’s amazing how your mind changes when you are uncontrollably sweating and it’s only 45 degrees outside.

So You’re Just Gonna Wear One Coat This Winter, That’s Dumb!

We basically went all Q4 laughing at Winter. We bragged about how much of a punk she was for not showing up (on time) on December 21st. I’m sure of few of you all were sporting shorts and flip-flops on Christmas Day. But guess what she did? Showed all the way up! Polar vortex is real and I won’t say I…

Why You Need This Vest This Fall

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…
