Summer Monochromatic Style

“We on da River wit it”…. LOL just a little Detroit humor.  Recently I was on the Detroit Riverfront  soaking up the sun. Omg the weather was amazing this day I was so happy that I was able to shot. This moment was so full circle for tMalaika (photographer) and myself. A few months back we were taking  pictures on the riverfront, however it was kinda cold, the lake was frozen over, and it was a muddy mess. We finally made it back around to riverfront to capture these amazing photos. This time around we were shooting for my new website launch. I came up with this cute monochromatic look that went so well with the riverfront. On today’s post I will be sharing with you all, how I put together this monochromatic outfit for the summer.

Most of yall know I really don’t have a plan when in mind when I come up with my looks. I just do it.  Well this time I had a …

I have been totally obsessed with neon colors. I love how popping it makes my skin looks. So that way I was in totally shock how cute this  crop cami top & bodycon skirt set from Shein looked on me! Giving me Channel Orange vibes! Can you believe this set only cost me $13 bucks? The girls are all for saving a few coins.

Taste of Summer| Hawaiian Shirt from Not Sorry Apparel

This shirt was given in collaboration with Not Sorry Apparel. All opinions are my own. Festival season is in full swing. If I was at Coachella right now I would be wearing this Hawaiian shirt, representing my city, and being unapologetic about. I love to look at all the fun outfits and colorful look that are inspired from Coachella and all the other festivals to come. Now when I initially went to the Not Sorry Apparel’s shop, a festival inspired look was not on my mind. I was clueless… I had not the slightest idea on what I wanted to do. So I started flipping through the racks and there it was.  I stop right at this Hawaiian, tropical print shirt. The light went off in my head and my inspirational juices started to flow. PARADISE! “Find paradise wherever I go” -Unknown So with this look  I decided to skip over spring and jumping straight into to warm summer vibes. This over sized Hawaiian shirt from Not Sorry Apparel is just want I need to put me back in my fun-loving spirit.  Definitely having a tropical state of mind!! Yo So this weekend my mom and I went downtown to …

Nailed the Summer Trend.. Button Down Dress from Forever21

Man this heat wave this week … OMG it was super hot! When it is hot like this outside I do not want any extra clothes making me even more hot. You know that irritating sticky feel you get, or that feeling you feel dirty as soon as you step outside. Yeah that kinda of hot.  Less clothes… gotta pull out a sun dress.  With that being said I found a cute little button down sundress.  I guess you can say I am trying to knock some of the last few trends of the summer before we get fully geared up for fall attire in the store. The heat index is somewhere between OMG and WTH  Any who I got this striped button down dress from Forever21.  The shell of the dress is made out of cotton with full rayon lining,  so I believe the material will help keep you cool. This dress is definitely outside my comfort zone. If you know me, I am body con dress lover. I love anything that hugs my curves. So having a dress that does not  hug me was different, but in a good way.  I normally do not do dresses like this …

Plus Size Fashion for Budget Friendly Woman

When I go shopping I like to have $100 dollars to spend. At the end of a nice shopping day I want to come out with a lot of bags ! I want my $100 to stretch. Do you feel me ! Like getting 1 or 2 items with $100 is good but I really don’t feel successful. I want to see the fruits of hard shopping day. So how can we make our money stretch for us. Now I am aware that plus size clothing can be somewhat expensive. I like to say the more material they use the more expensive the item is. So yes it makes hard for my curvy girls to find affordable clothing!  So I decided to compile list of few places that I think my curvy sis would appreciate. A few places they can find classic or trendy clothes without BREAKING THE BANK. Facts! I know for a fact that we do not to need to buy expensive things for validation or just to feel at your best.
