Silver & Gold

Merry Christmas, all! I hope your holiday was full of good food, hilarious family, amazing music and unforgettable presents. Mine sure was. I didn’t leave school until the 24th, so I was overjoyed to finally be home. And I thought I would share what I wore on this particularly holy night. My outfit was simple, comfortable and festive all at once. And I paired this natural style (a day-old, pinned-up, bantu knot-out) with red lips. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas. (more…)

Baby, It’s Code

On this particularly gloomy day, I thought it best to rock some cool tones. This velveteen blazer is one of my favorite thrift store finds ever, because I love the deep violet color and plush fabric. And it fits me like a glove. I layered the blazer over a simple white shirt from Target, with knit paneling at the collar. The dark jeans are from Old Navy. For jewelry, I opted for my favorite silver necklace (H&M) and a simple silver watch (Nordstrom).

Sierra Leone

Here’s my outfit for the day. I was in a ‘Sierra Leone’ kind of mood. I put on a pair of tan-colored skinny jeans by Forever 21+, my leopard print Target slippers and my denim shirt (from my late Grandpa). Nothing too fancy, nothing too fussy. Just a cozy pair of jeans, some quirky flats and one of my favorite button-ups.

Lovers In The Parking Lot

I present to you another OOTD, this time right after work. (Well, right after a nap right after work.) The sun was going down, so I was forced to shoot on my friend’s front porch, which is why there’s an assortment of cars behind me. The setting reminded me of Solange’s song, so I figured I’d just go with it. My top, which is really a shirtdress, is from Target. My cobalt capris are from Target, by way of Goodwill. And my shoes are from Forever 21, from forever ago. (Get it? Ha!) I wasn’t wearing any special jewelry, and I found my sunglasses somewhere randomly. (more…)
