Floral jumpsuit | Shopping tips for building your wardrobe

“Power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it.” – Unknown

Floral jumpsuit (1)

Whenever I go to a store and find a pretty multicolored item, my first thought is: “This is definitely #VersicolorApproved.” When said item is only $15, well girl, you know I’m heading straight to the register. Steals like this are the reason why I swear by Zara’s semi annual sale. I might not have bought this if it was full price because of the fact that the back is open which means I can’t wear it year round but with a price tag this low, the fashion gods had me sold!

She must’ve been around 14 or 15 at the time and in our culture, that’s beyond unacceptable so it was a BIG deal (insert devious face). I let the jokes go on for the entire day and didn’t reveal that I was joking until the sun had set. Lol! Good times! 🙂 With that said, this summer, an opportunity came up for me to pull a major surprise and I was not about to miss it. Here’s what happened:

My mom always told me that some people come to your life for a season and others for a lifetime. But learning to differentiate between the two can be the result of terrible backstabbing experiences and other lessons learned the hard way so to prevent such unnecessary pains, I figured I’d share 3 ways you can differentiate fake friends vs. real friends.
