  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie

  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

Beyonce Concert Gucci Mamanista Party Style Shorts Summer Fashion Sunglasses

Mamanista Fridays Link-Up: The Vest

July 18, 2014

I’m so ready for the weekend.  The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy.  I plan to catch up on some rest and get back on my diet.  Enough of my whining.  This week, Mama Fashion Files and I are wearing vests.  I wore this outfit to the Beyonce and Jay Z concert in Atlanta on Tuesday.

 Utility vest, Leith (similar) | Tee, J Crew (on sale) | Jean shorts, JCP | similar necklace | Watch c/o Caravelle | Aviators, Ray-Ban (similar) | Shoes, Chuck Taylor | Cross-body, Gucci (similar)

My outfit for the summer was super casual.  I took the train to the concert and I knew I would be on my feet all night.  I wasn’t taking any chances trying to be cute in heels.  A vest is a the perfect way to add layers during the summer. We’re styling Peplum next week. Be sure to follow our Pinterest board for inspiration here.

About the concert…It was nothing short of amazing!  Beyonce was everything I thought she would be and more.  Jay Z held it down while Beyonce changed outfits.  Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Jigga and was on my feet for him all night but the show was really about Beyonce.  Jay looked like he was so happy to support his wife.  We need to see more examples of that.  They performed over two hours.  Greatest concert ever!  If you went to the concert, what did you think?

    The concert was the business! Love that you kept it casual because I saw a ton of chicks wearing their club fits and shoes to the concert. Tragic!
