Can you believe it… Its the first day of summer ! Wow I can say this so many times , this year is going by so fast ! woMAN! So if I could be anywhere right now I would love to be on somebody’s island enjoying a nice pineapple beverage with the sun warming my skin with a nice tropical breeze. Let me stop day dreaming … since the island can’t come to me I will bring it to me. Guess I will post up in the city until the day comes I get the chance to sip a drink by the pool .
I wish yall could have seen me in Forever21 trying to put this outfit together. LOL I walked around the plus size section about 20 times to get the right outfit to match the headband. Mad woman on the loose ! Before I even started looking I came across this leaf inspired headband. Now if you been reading my blog you will know that I love floral aesthetics. Anyway, my braids were freshly done and I wanted to rock a cute headband… so lets the finding of an outfit commence! First, I ran across an eyelet off the shoulder crop top. The color had me sold! You would also know that I have outright relationship with the color yellow. It has been dub my color ! Back to the outfit, I don’t know what it is but a nice off the shoulder top to show off my shoulder does something to me. It so subtle and seductive at the same time when my shoulders are out and exposed. Also I love the fact that it has the elastic band at the bomb to hold the crop top in place. While I was in the store I found these linen shorts that I thought match well with this fit. I could have bought these shorts in a 1x but I stuck with 2x because I wanted to fit a little baggy. Linen blend fabrics are super comfy to the touch for me. Lastly, the gold Monsetra leaf earring in my opinion sent this outfit out of orbit ! Man on man it was sooooo bomb . It was complete. (Sidenote: Let me say that Forever21 need go ahead a partner up with me because I spend so much time in the store it crazy !) I feel like this outfit can be worn up or down. It has slight of city vibes mix in with a island glow! City Boho …. hmmm. I am picturing this outfit at a island theme night party with drinks with a umbrella in them and awesome pool decoration and globe lights nestle around the fences !
