A short break...

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. 

Its the Weekend! May Wrap Up!

Its both exciting and a little intimidating to venture out into this brand new phase of my life but I am ready to see what the good Lord has in store. Here are my favorite links, video clips and favorite outfits and life moments that inspired me and gave me new hope.

Orange Geometric Print Shift Dress

 Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
When a bright color inspires you run with it. Let it inspire your creativity. Let it inspire the theme of your outfits for the week and help you plan what you will be wearing this week. First you pick your favorite color of the Spring/Summer season, then you search for complimentary and neutral colors that match and then you let the magic of styling, fashion and your personality take center stage as they come up with combinations that you have never thought of before. This recipe for an outfit will inspire you to always think outside the box. This bright orange color from OPI “Mai Tai” nail color  is what inspired me and I ran with it and as a result I got to see my clothes, style combinations and given me a whole new energy to my personal style. Today will begin with this orange shift dress and then we will go from there. I hope you enjoy this theme this week.

Blue Short Suit + Pink Lace Blouse


Hello Friends, Happy Friday! 
As you read this post I am up in the air somewhere over the Atlantic on my way to Miami for my friend’s Bachelorette weekend. I am so excited to spend some quality time with her and our friends. It will be great fun. When packing for a trip, I tend to always over pack take items i don’t need or use while on the trip and can never decide on what outfit i can wear on each day so I have to bring options. Its has always been a fashion struggle to commit and just wear what works for the actual trip and the activities I will do.  As I figure out what ways I can better prepare and pack for a trip I do have some easy travel tips for short flights within the United States. I was recently learning and researching ways I can incorporate the capsule experiment  into my summer wardrobe. They say that implementing a theme or color to your outfits when traveling can decide and commit to outfits that can work together and create more than one look with few pieces. Its something that i need to constantly work on to be a better traveler and ultimately a better packer. 

This outfit is just Fabulous! It makes me feel like a character out of the TV show Miami Vice. With all the color and structured suits  with an island feel it was so easy to be there and solve a case in style. Its also a perfect outfit to end this week and April in true Vintage Miami Vice style. In a matter of fact it gives me an ideas to do a series of favorite tv shows and their main characters fashion sense of style. I did it when Scandal first came into our lives. What to Wear when You’re Olivia Pope. It need to come this fall when Prime time returns. Its decided. Coming soon to styledbykesha.com a new outfit series inspired my TV.

Hello Friends, Happy Thursday! 
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof, because I'M happy! I know that you know the song! Its the Happy Song! Do you know why I'm Happy? Because, Do you know what today is? IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!! WOOHOO! Its truly a blessing to see another year of life! I am so happy that my face hurts from smiling extra hard! And what makes me happier is that I get to spend it with my sister! I get to spend this birthday with the ones that are truly close to my heart and that is all the gifts I need but you know gifts are always welcome and received with a grateful heart! LOL! Anyway about this outfit! I had it custom made from this purple YA MADO/ Angelina JAVA African Print my Mom brought for my Christmas gift. This is the first time I am wearing it and I love it! I was inspired to design it with this extra big skirt in mind and it turn out beautiful. As we were walking to this location a passerby complimented me on the look. I guess I do have a future talent in designing. For now, all I WANT TO DO IS TWIRL LIKE THE WIND FABULOUS!!!

Maroon Blazer + Green Polka Dot Blouse

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
I am super excited because I have a birthday this week! I am turning a year older and it is a blessing that I get to see. Yesterday, As I was driving to church, I was listening to the Grace Church sermon as I always do and I heard something profound that has stuck with me and compelled me to share it on Snapchat and Facebook. Its something that we always need to stay true to: OURSELVES! He said this, YOU WERE BORN AN ORIGINAL, DON'T DIE A COPY! Isn't this statement so true! When we are not focused on our own gifting, talents and skills and working toward or in our purpose, we sometimes compare ourselves to others instead of working on the very thing that makes us unique and special! Isnt this life lesson right on time to not only motivate you this week but to keep you grounded, focused and centered on what I can give to the world and not what others think i should or copying another person's story to get the same result. One thing I know for sure is that Different People are different! So guess what, I am doing to do? I am going to take this life lesson and apply it to 2016 and take it as a gift for my birthday!
