• I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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 main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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.

Mamanista Fridays: Trench Coat (Kinda)

March 7, 2014

Since spring is taking it’s sweet little time to come, Mama Fashion File and I are styling our trench coats for Mamanista Friday.  Unfortunately, my coat isn’t exactly a trench coat.  What had happened was… in my head, I keep telling myself it was a trench coat even though it’s really a parka.  So act like you didn’t notice because this coat from Lulu’s is super cute.

BB Dakota coat c/o Lulu’s | Tee, Rebbecca Minkoff | MNG jeans, JCP | Sunglasses c/o LMA | LV bag | Moto boots, Report (similar) | Watch c/o Rakani

A light trench coat is a great way to transition to spring.  Trench coats aren’t just for Sunday morning or heading to the office.  They really go with more that what you think but I like to wear them with jeans best. 

I also wanted to introduce you to my beautiful new time-piece from Rakani.  This style is called Stuck in Traffic, made with Swarovski crystals.  You can find out more about Rakani here.

How do you style your trench coat?  I hope you will join Mama Fashion Files and I to link-up for Mamanista Fridays.  The style theme for next week Black & White.

    The coat is fabulous, trench or not! 🙂 I totally agree that the coat is versatile and can easily be dressed up or down!

    I like how you styles this! I would have never paired it with jeans- I am more of the Sunday trench coat wearer like you said. This spring (if it ever decides to come) I’ll definitely try to switch it up!

    Love this relaxed look and it looks like a trench to me! I thought maybe my jacket wasn’t a trench. 🙂
