So I’ve been wanting a gold waist belt for the longest and now that I’ve finally found it, I find myself debating whether or not it’s worth its price tag. When I spotted it on Shirley of Shirley’s Wardrobe, I just knew I had to have it. She styled it oh so perfectly by cinching the waist of her lovely mustard coat and finishing the look with a leopard print clutch.
“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

You have seen these yellow shorts already in this post where I wore them as a short suit but I’m loving yellow so much this season, it was time for a wardrobe remix. It’s always fun to see the different ways you can wear one item and mix up your wardrobe without having to shop nonstop. Lately, a lot of my posts have been featuring shorts of many styles and lengths (in white here and in blue here) because they are the perfect things to wear in this scorching weather we are having in NY. The Caribbean girl in me is THRILLED!
If you are one of those people petrified to wear shorts, I say take the risk this summer. They don’t need to be super short or super tight; A comfortable length and breathable fabric are what to focus on when choosing the best pair. Move out of your comfort zone. The above quote is for you!

This is the skirt from Topshop that I ordered to wear for my birthday but it wasn’t delivered until the day after. I love Topshop but their standard delivery is easily 20+ days. Just terrible if you have time constraints! Anyway, when I wore it, I was asked three times if I was African. Lol! I love my African prints but I am very much Haitian. Same motherland though so yeah, I’m kind of African. Continue reading ““Safari fashion””
