One of the trends this fall are colors that tend to be seen in other seasons– blush, florals and oranges. I love orange and the different variations…definately my tones (pulls out the gold in my skin). And as you know, i’m a huge fan of jumpsuits and onesie fits, so of course when I see them in stores, I gravitate towards them. There were several different colors and I tried on the royal blue, but I have a ton of blue and was missing a super bright piece in my wardrobe. Aaaand, it was on clearance.
I love scarves….as in wearing them on my head. Whenever I am having a lazy hair day….which is most days (hence twists/protective styles), I find it super easy to throw a scarf on my head for a quick style that’s comfortable and….quick 🙂
Scarves make good head wraps, especially in the summer to get hair out of your face and off your neck. They’re good for the fall because they’re even more versatile. When it is a wrap day, I, i’m usually quite casual; shirt dress, or in this case jeans and a button down. You can easily dress up your jeans with heels, but to honor the season, I opted for some cool suede boots.
Fall tip: to offset the coral shirt, I pulled the blues from the wrap into the accessories and wore a dark lip.’

Is it me…it’s probably me, but I feel so elegant and Net-A-Porter-ish with this dress and simplicity of it. It’s classic, comfortable and cross seasonal. The only difference, i’m not rolling in dough to shop at Net-A-Porter. Plus, I get tons of compliments every time I wear this.
I love pairing different textures and styles together. You can pair a beautiful blouse with trousers, khakis, jeans or old high waisted shorts. I’m not one to tone down color…it’s like wearing a good highlight; you HAVE to add more. Paired with a bright pink wallet, floral print scarf, turquoise earrings and fringed heels. I also would’ve loved to wear my orange matte lipstick with this, if someone (COUGH, mama) didn’t hijack it. Spice up your look by adding a colorful scarf or bold lip; very simple additions!

There’s something about bright, bold colors and prints that exudes confidence. African attire screams confidence and pride. African clothing is well made, on a sowing machine and not mass produced. The patterns and prints are contemporary, dramatic, stimulating and eye-catching. How can you not feel confident in that?!
I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA.

It’s the holidays. Here is an idea for a night out with friends, date night or game night (if you’re fancy). I’d totally wear this to game night :).
