In the words of one of my favorite rappers, Jeezy, I need a vacation! So, I’m counting down the days until Friday, because I will be off until next Thursday. After the last few weeks I’ve had, professionally and personally, I had to cash in some of my vacation days. Since the 4th of July/paid holiday fell on a Tuesday, I decided to take the Monday before and Wednesday after off. So, I might use this time to pack one of my duffel bags and take a quick solo weekend getaway.
In college, I learned the importance of having a duffel bag, because you never know you need one until you do. Duffel bags are clutch for overnight visits, quick weekend getaways, or a gym bag. If you are in the market for a new duffel bag or need to add one to your life, keep reading to see some of my favorite picks.
Hey Summer 2017! I’m so glad you’re here!
When it comes to dressing in the summer, I’ve found that wearing lightweight pieces that are easy to wear and style are a sure safe bet. This summer, I’m all about light weight dresses with feminine details, such as a white lace dress. Keep reading to get all the details on my ideal go-to summer 2017 look.
Every now and then, I go through phases in various parts of my life. For example, a few weeks ago, I went through a phase when I ate onion rings almost everyday. Currently, I’m exiting my black coffee and almond with a dash of cinnamon phase. I’ve also gone through bright lipstick phases and the overgrown eyebrows phase, but I might bringing those back for the summer. Another phase I might be going through this summer is the need to buy and wear nautical blue stripes.
My blue stripe phase wasn’t planned, but it’s happening. In the past couple of months, I’ve bought 2 different shirts with 2 different sizes of blue stripes. Also, I’m tracking a skirt with nautical blue stripes on it’s way to my doorstep as I type. Therefore, I’m in this phase and I’m still interested in adding to it. Keep reading to see what other striped items are perfect for my latest phase.
Don’t let the title of this post and the color of the header fool. I’m not the biggest fan of the color pink, except for polishes and makeup. However, every now and then, I fancy a little pink in my life. Currently, I’ve been all about pink sneakers and thankfully there are plenty of them out there. I’m not sure if it’s the anxiety of summer approaching or just the fact that pink sneakers are killing the game right now. Whatever it is, I’m in!
If you’re kind of feeling pink sneakers or just into sneakers, then this post is for you.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means an extended weekend. This long weekend, I’ve been invited to a couple of Memorial Day barbecues. Now, when it comes to styling my ideal backyard BBQ look, I have a couple of requirements. I prefer clothing that’s not snug or too light in color. Now that I think about it, that’s my requirement for most of outfit choices. However, in this case, I prefer to not feel like an overstuffed sausage while eating grilled overcooked sausages. So, the looser, the better. Also, I’m kind of clumsy when eating, especially BBQ. So, whites are off limits, because ruining any white clothing is stressful.
Some people consider Memorial Day the beginning of summer. However, I look it as the end of spring. Maybe we should use this weekend to wear our last bit of springy colors. So, if you are still on the fence about what to wear to any upcoming backyard BBQ or summer party, keep reading to get all the details for this inspired look to help you say “goodbye” to spring and “Hey, girl!” to summer.
