Summer Style Goal

So for some odd reason I have been in a relaxed and earthy mood. Me and my best friend decided we wanted to be hippies and be more attached to our roots this summer. That means long skirts, kimonos, floral crowns, tribal prints and marley twists. This is going to be interesting…but we are definitely into it and want to try it out! I don’t know if it has been the weather but when I go outside I just want to appreciate nature! Smelling the fresh air and flowers makes you love life even more which is why I am in a bohemian phase since they were into peace and outdoors. Me wearing my hair natural makes me more proud of my roots and heritage, black women for a long time wanted their hair to be anything but afrowy. Wearing tribal prints and other fashion items related to the trend gives me a sense of being like where my ancestors come from so I am happy to do a little change for awhile. Plus I am always up to changing my style, recently I was looking into my closet and noticed I have a lot of florals. I love florals but I need new prints!!! I have plaids, stripes, polka dots, houndstooth, animal, and many other prints but it is mainly floral! So I would like to see more tribal prints in my wardrobe. Also when I was in Philly a couple of weeks ago I brought these really nice bohemian type shorts out of Urban Outfitters.

I don’t know whether to wear it with a flowy top with bell sleeves or this striped shirt I have with a crochet kimono. Also I bought this tribal print romper from Target aka Targ├ęt as I like to call it.

Hooefully I can corporate more pieces in my wardrobe like these to achieve my summer style goal.

$10 Dress

I love this dress, cute print, nice fit, love the neckline and it was $10 at Old Navy. SCORE!!! There was another dress I wanted to get that had a sweetheart neckline and wad made a little different but you cannot beat $10. I was in Philly once again this past weekend ( i have a couple of outfit photos)….very interesting weekend. I had got this dress and some really cute hippie looking shorts from Urban Outfitters. But today for my outfit I wanted to add a necklace to the dress to really make it standout. My necklace didn’t neccessarily match but to me it still went with the outfit.

Yellow my go to Color

I think yellow is going to be my color for the season. It is so bright and it reminds me of everything that has to do with spring/summer, like fruit, the sun, flowers and many other things. It is one of my favorite colors as well and I wished i had more of it in my closet. I was excited to hear that OPI came out with a Brazil collection and it has this pretty bright yellow nail polish which currently I have been wearing.

Please do not mind my chipped nail polish (laugh), I also have this statement ring on that I absolutely love!!! I recently got it from jcpenney. I was happy to buy this since I do not have a lot of rings and it is in your face type of ring.

I also have been feeling very tribally if that is a word…the necklace I got reminds me of that and the blues and teals of the necklace really compliments the yellow. Another thing please do not mind my shirt it’s the type of material that wrinkles easily let me tell you I have been battling this shirt all day. Oh and you know how this season the orange lip is in??? I have morange on by MAC which I actually wore last summer when my friend did my makeup.;

20140402-162442.jpg I put it with a cat-eye and made my make-up minimal as possible since the color is so “loud”. Orange this summer is going to be my to go lip color.>
