Predictable




At the ripe old age of 29, I am getting quite predictable. I've mentioned before that I literally cannot resist the allure of black and white so this Easter ensemble was surprising to absolutely no one. Hopefully, the pop of red shows that I have a few tricks up my sleeve. But as for this rebellious hair? I can only thank the windy weather and my Guyanese roots! Lol, thanks for stopping by!

Prim


Hey guys! Just a little work ensemble for these tricky transitional days. Honestly, how does a girl make it stylishly from the cold mornings to warm afternoons? 40 degree temperature shifts in one day have thrown me for a loop. So for now, I'm relying on blazers, pastels, printed skirts...and occasionally printed pumps to shake it up for the office. What's your signature spring look?

Easy




Happy hump day! So lucky for me, this was easy as 1-2-3 since I am quite challenged with getting up early. On those running late days with no time to spare, I like to keep it simple. One: Zip up a stretchy, tailored pant (bonus points for fun prints!) // Two: Toss on a colorful silky tank // Three: Top it off with an effortless blazer. A few coordinating accessories and I'm out the door. What are your tricks for looking fly in a flash?

Whimsy

 

Hey guys, know what rhymes with whimsy? Windy. Which is exactly what this day was. Therefore, trying to get my hair to cooperate on camera was truly an exercise in futility. But isn't natural hair best when its untamed and free?! Lol, I hope so in case I need to pull out that reasoning on the next blustery day.

On the bright side, no snow on the ground meant that I could step out in the pink suede shoes real quick before sandals take over. But it has snowed in May so here's hoping next week's footwear isn't Uggs!

Ruffled

 


So despite owning a few, I'm rather 'anti-suit'. Meaning that I really hate to put on a matching blazer and pant set for work functions, it just feels too stuffy for me. So I put my spin on professional attire by throwing on a blazer and coordinating pencil skirt instead. And being the dress code rebel that I am, a pink ruffled skirt seemed right on target for a busy work day. Nothing like feeling girly while climbing the corporate ranks!

Thanks for stopping by!
