8 Style Resolutions

Hello Friends, Happy 2018!

As a new year begins I always think of the way I can refresh my personal style and give it new life and inspiration. I hope that I creatively evolve my fashion sense, develop my personal style and embrace my african heritage confidently. As we have started a new season,  I wanted to share the 8 style resolutions for this year. I started this series three years ago with my 5 style resolutions and how I did at the end of the year with 5 style resolutions update

Build a Capsule Wardrobe 
I have been fascinated with the capsule wardrobe idea for the past year now. A capsule wardrobe is a mini wardrobe made up of versatile staple pieces that create personalized outfits that you love to wear. Since I have discovered and now know my personal style. as the new year quickly approaching I thought it would be a perfect time to start. I will be following the advice from the blogger Caroline Rector and her website unfancy.com it will show and teach step by step how to create a capsule wardrobe I know I will love.

Try a Monochromatic/Minimalist Style
I have always been interested in wearing, all black, all gray, all white outfits. It will push my style to a whole new level. So I will research, find inspiration and grow my creativity to push my personal style further with monochromatic/minimalist style trends.

Buy Investment Pieces
 I want to buy and support more contemporary African Designers. I will also get better quality wardrobe essentials and classic pieces.  Investing in my wardrobe will help me create the style I have always wanted.  in these collections will eventually be seen on the blog and it will teach me to be careful and thoughtful when buying luxury items. 

Build a Signature Color Palate
Choosing the colors that will bring the vibe and personality to my wardrobe. I will do a color analysis to see what colors work best for my skin tone and create a color palate that compliments me. 

Get a Beauty Routine (skin care, makeup & hair care)
I have learned the power of living a healthy life to improve my skin and keep my hair strong and growing. I would also want to learn how to great beauty for special or important occasions that will get be a polished signature look.

Collect Signature Statement Accessories
I absolutely enjoy and collect African jewelry and accessories. I will resolve to build a collection that can be added to each outfit that i style and is seamless to my personality. See this blog post: African Accessories- will update soon) 

Build a Stylish Shoe Collection
I have been building a collection that can carry from season to season and to each year. I realize that shoes are important to any outfit and having a collection of basics, unique ones can be so much fun. (See my summer shoe | summer shoe part 2 | winter boots )

Be a better Thrift shopper
This past year I have recognized the benefits of shopping second hand. It helps the environment, my wallet and pushes my creativity to style unique pieces and find classic styles to modernize. (See my come thrift with me |come thrift with us-snapchat

3 ways to wear white converse

3 Ways to Wear Converse

Hello Friends, Happy Tuesday!
Welcome back to my style blog! It feels good to be back and explore my creativity all over again. Summer is the perfect time to wear white converse and I have been discovering many different ways to wear it as I have been exploring a more casual outfit wardrobe this season. Here are three fun ways to wear the classic pair of white converse that I think is essential in any stylish wardrobe.

Wear it with a floral dress

When you style a floral dress that is usually paired with flat sandals or heels gives you a unique sense of style and surprise outfit combination that is eclectic all on its own. Wear this outfit on a girl's day out exploring the city.

Wear it with bright color pants

Wearing White Converse and pairing it with bright red color pants gives this outfit a very patriotic 4th of July vibe look that I think exemplifies the classic American style and celebrates the country as a united one. Any holiday or watching an outdoor movie on the lawn.

Wear it with a cotton tank dress

When I wear white converse with a classic tank dress I definitely feel like the coolest girl on the neighborhood block. It shows you can be casual and sexy at the same time. I would definitely wear this to a barbecue, concert or picnic at the park.

Thank you for Reading. Until Next time.

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
It has been a long while... and I miss blogging so much! Its like a lost touch with a close friend! It has just been a crazy busy this summer. With starting a demanding new job, being a bridesmaid and maid of honor and those responsibilities of hosting the bachelorette and bridal shower I haven't had the chance to sit down and blog a cool fashion forward outfit.

Blue Stripped Blazer + Red Denim + White Converse

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
So every season I somehow know when I need something new in my wardrobe. As I have been observing and people watching a lot of street style and noticed the trend of the white converse sneaker for the summer. Since its the first official day of summer I wanted to dedicate this week to my new favorite summer essential: The White Converse. Today, I wear it with my favorite red denim and blue/white stripe blazer. Its being patriotic without being patriotic.

Monthly GOALS: JUNE 2016

Hello Friends, Happy June!
We are officially half way through the year! Have you done things that you wanted to accomplish this year yet? As the days turn into weeks and then months time goes by and we tend to sit and wait for things to happen, waiting for tomorrow and hoping someday things will happen and come together nicely in a perfect gift! But thats not how life works friends. Getting to the dream life you have always wanted takes a daily decision to work hard, pursue opportunities and a constant hustle mindset that gets you there. You can wish and hope you will get to your dream, but it actually takes one step at a time toward the path you set out. Each step and encounter that you come across builds your character and strength to really fully enjoy the process and the journey. As the quotes states its not the destination but the journey that shapes the life that you want. Here are the five goals I have set for myself this month. Even if I don't get eve thing done, I know that I tried and put in effort to make it happen everyday. See my goals for April.
