Outfit: Bumblebee Style Influences

Greetings Fashionistas,

It's my 2nd favorite day of the week (Sunday is the real MVP). Tonight is wash night....and for my fellow natural hair divas, you know I'm in for a long evening. Oh well, got to do what's necessary to promote this growth.....which is why I will be rocking a protective style from today through the end of the summer.



Sorry these photos are a bit dim in brightness. It was dusk when I was finally able to take these pics. Had to do it before I went to dinner.
 
Just so you all know, I am so fond of this skater skirt. The color is bright and it has my favorite print! Now.......I will say it is difficult for me to bend over or venture out in winds above 5 mph......but who cares right??? It has polka dots!!!! LOL!
 
 
 
 

My honey says I looked like a sexy bumblebee.....Haaaa! That's quite fine with me :-)
 
 
 


Ummm.....can we take a moment and admire these heels???? My lawd are they sexy!!! I walked by them several times in the store and the last time I saw them they happened to "fall off the shelf" as I was looking at a dress. I mean they literally begged for me to take them home. It was so cute!!! I just couldn't leave them behind, LMBO!
 
Note to self: Humanizing a pair of heels is just a tad bit concerning.....memo #327

Outfit: Blue Canvas

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

How was your Memorial Day weekend??? I hope you all had a blast! I went shopping this past weekend, bought a car, and cooked out with the family. In other words.....I'm currently super low on funds, LOL. I know the holiday is significant so I also thanked our brave soldiers for risking their lives for us each and every day and those who died fighting for freedom.



I wore these shades of blue for a speaking engagement with my regional pharmacy conference. I spoke on oral oncology agents. I was super nervous because there were so many people there but God had my back and I delivered the info like a boss ;-)
 
 
 


 I wish I can capture the textured detail of this skirt....it's so fab! These pumps are great for professional outings and they are my new neutral!

Outfit: Stripes and Fur

Greetings Fashionistas,

Welcome to the weekend!!! I have to be short and sweet today so let's get right into the post :-)


Yes....I know....I'm wrinkled as HECK!!! My sister told me that 'the wrinkles will fall out' cannot be my default excuse from ironing, LMBO!
 
 
 


This necklace is EVERYTHING!!! I'm so mad I wore these earrings....I stud pair would have better complemented my necklace.
 
 
 
 

This pink purse is a fabulous eye-catching shade! Not to mention I just love carrying it because it's so soft, LOL.

Outfit: Vintage Vest and Bermuda Shorts

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I hope your week is starting off well. If not, just know that a 3-day weekend is coming up shortly ;-)



I'm a just a wee bit obsessed interested in all things Bob Marley. And since I came back from Jamaica, I have been rocking his CDs, lol. I love to take a basic graphic tee and make it feminine. All it takes is heels, statement jewelry, and a lippie!
 
 
 


These dress shorts are really flattering. My thighs should be named something else but these shorts make them appear kinda fit, lol.
 
 
 
 
 


This metallic bag was one of the BEST $5 purchases I have ever come across! It subtly fits in with my overall look but also has a 'standalone' presence as well.

Outfit: Kimono, Swimsuit, and Gladiators

Greetings Fashionistas,

Friday has finally arrived. Why is it so hard to get back on track the 1st work week after vacation??? Is it because you get a little taste of what it would be like to not have to work? That could explain the profound feelings of despair that overcomes my psyche when I get back from vacay, LOL. At least I try to turn my thoughts to a new mantra...'working to vacay'......makes everything more tolerable :-)

I have another full weekend but it's all good. A huge presentation that I finished at the last minute (shame on me), comedy show and dinner with friends, niece's dance recital, and the most important, unimportant thing.....getting my hair done, lol. What do you guys have cooking?

Disclaimer: I had no time to take any pictures this week....and I didn't go anywhere. So unfortunately you will just have to be subjected to these poor quality droid images I have from my vacation. My bad!



During our tour in Negril, I kindly asked our driver to pull over so I could take photos. Doesn't matter if I'm in the states or not, I'm the same me, lol.
 
 
 

This kimono is so chic. It's going to be used as a swimsuit cover as well! Although the weather was hot and humid in Jamaica (some thing I'm definitely used to), this garment kept me pretty cool.
 
 


What am I looking at??? Can't remember, Haaa! But I do know these African necklaces are to die for! So glad I got these suckers!!!
