Took a summertime stroll downtown with my boyfriend in my new favorite tube skirt! This navy & cream striped piece is by Vince Camuto and I paired it with my light wash chambray button up, a faux leopard print belt with a chunky jeweled statement necklace.
I love stripes, but I have to be careful wearing a striped bottom since I’m a pear shape and it could make my lower half look wider. When I do choose to wear stripes, they’re always more narrow and smaller in scale!
This look would be great for a casual luncheon or day date. The key to mixing these different elements (the leopard print, the stripes, chambray and jewels) is keeping the accessories relatively simple. Thinking outside of the box is fun, but you don’t want to go overboard with accents for this kind of look as it might look too busy. I threw on some minimal nude strappy heels to balance out the classiness of the necklace and to dress the look up a bit. For relief from the pain of these heels (lol), I slipped on some brown leather open-toed flats.

One of the best songs [in my opinion] on Solange’s latest EP now has visuals! Filmed exclusively in her hometown, it has that mix of authentic, unique eclecticism & a cool 80s vibe. The essence of Solange…I love you.
*Que breath of fresh air*
Best music video I’ve seen in a long time. Directed by Solange’s boo thang, Alan Ferguson.
Loved the combo
Loved the dancing
Love these women
Bravo Janelle & Erykah!
As most of you know by now, I’ve been accepted into Lorenzo de Medici’s study abroad program in Italy for the summer. I’ll be studying design and I am beyond excited to immerse myself in the culture and work on my craft at an international school of design! This program is really expensive though, and I’d love to not have to take out an enormous loan. Friends and family have begun to help me out in raising $2500 [a large portion of my tuition], and in a little over a week I’ve raised over $1000! I can’t express how grateful I am to have such supportive people in my corner helping me achieve my goals.
Contribute $10 or more to help me reach $2500 and fund part of this awesome opportunity! If you’re not able to contribute, it would be great if you could share the link anyway!
