Hello my loves!
My favorite seasons are hands down spring and summer (that’s expected from a Caribbean girl like me I suppose) but if there’s something that I look forward to when the temps get cooler, it’s the stylish booties and fabulous jackets we get to sashay around in.
Yesterday after work, I decided to stop by Zara since I haven’t checked out their new collection. The first thing that caught my attention was this gorgeous tan coat with faux-leather detailing. I always feel like the pictures don’t do the actual products justice so it’s always best when you get to see and feel the item in person.
“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.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Last week, I posted statement earrings under $30 that a fashionista on a budget can use to amp up her wardrobe or add a sophisticated look to her casual outfit. Well, there is definitely more where that came from because I found you guys plenty of statement necklaces for when you want elevate your look without breaking the bank. Enjoy!

High-waisted bottoms and crop tops are slowly taking over my closet this summer. I find this trend to be so sassy but can simultaneously remain classy if done right.

There is nothing better than looking fabulous on a budget. I tend to find some insane deals, especially when I have no intentions of shopping – like the $7 I paid for this sequins H&M skirt (seen here and here) when the original price was $199+tax. Here’s the unbelievable story of these studded shorts:

We only get one chance to make a great first impression so keep this in mind every morning as you prepare to leave the house. Do your clothes speak positively on your behalf?! Is your sense of style really conveying your true personality to the public? Put in a little effort today and lift your spirits and confidence 🙂
Have a great weekend lovies!

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””
