Lace and florals are one of my favourite combinations, perfect for a casual Summer attire.Just sharing another one of these fun looks I did while I was spending time at my sister home in Atlanta. This look for me is very casual but perfect for the outdoors under a bright sunlight. The dress I’m wear is one of my favourites this Summer because its so lightweight and airy but still has a very girlie look to is. I chose to lightly layer it with a white lace top for that extra Summer touch. Since I was running around in the field, I saw it best to wear my comfy flat oxford shoes that I’ve been sporting around a lot in… it was perfect for that day and also all casual occasions. Let me know what you think of this look and tell me what you would wear for a casual Summer day outdoors.

I love living in Brooklyn, where I’m able to roam the streets of Williamsburg on the weekends with awesome friends full of laughter and carefree… The fact that my friend and I basically went restaurant hoping for around 30 mins, simply because there were so many options to decide from and we’re both oh so indecisive. During our restaurant contemplation, we stopped by the Brooklyn Flea, which was full of cool things, mostly vintage items perfect for the Brooklyn stereotype. Some cute vintage Hawaiian shirt that kind reminded me of being back in Jamaica.
Dress & Shoes- Forever 21
Overall it was a pretty great day spent in Williamsburg. It was super hot which is why this oversized A-line dress fit perfectly for the occasion, as I was able to keep very cool and comfortable. The embroidery on the dress is my favourite part about it because it gives such a Baroque feeling, contrasting against the darkness of the dress.
I kept it pretty simply, and just an awesome silver necklace made out of tiny little spoons and flat loafers from Forever 21 kept me extra comfortable since we were walking around a whole lot.

There’s something about this top that I absolutely can’t get over because I’m so in love with the feel and look of it. It has these adorable assembled sequins in an abstract shaped heart, which I find to be very fun for a Summer look. I’m generally not the type to be a fan of sequins but the fact that it’s not completely covering the entire top gives it a pass. The wide shape of the top makes it very drapey and gives an awesome loose fit.
What would the scorching hot Summer be without spaghetti strap tops and dresses because this one surely saved my life from melting in the sun. I paired it with a loose fitting trousers that I practically live in. I probably wear these trousers at least once a week, pairing it with different ideas and just having fun with it. It’s literally one of those pieces that you can wear endlessly and always find unique ways to style it while still remaining comfortable. To finish off the look, I accessorized with my awesome vintage fork neckline (yes it is made of a real fork) and my iridescent oil slick Jeffrey Campbells that I took out for play…I almost forgot I had it until I found it one day while organizing the shoes in my closet.

As I enjoy this sizzling summer, I choose to go pretty simple with my daily outfits. With messy untouched hair, light make-up and a two piece sets…it definitely makes for a comfortable day visiting my favourite cafe spot in Brooklyn. Top & Shorts Set- Forever 21 | Vest- Nasty Gal | Boots- H&M
This look is a completely toned down version of my last post, as I chose to go a lot more simpler with the styling of this white lace two piece shorts set. I literally fell so in love with this set when I first saw it because it was so simple and elegant and felt like one of those pieces that could easily transition into almost any occasion. I could definitely see myself pairing each piece as a stand alone because the richness of the lace makes for a item for combining with other pieces in my closet.
I decided to keep it pretty simple with just layering lightly with my black vest and a solid pair of dark brown boots that are super comfortable and easy to wear. I sort of wished I wore a necklace or maybe a choker, but sometimes just being simple works perfectly.

One of those fun sunny days, when I can throw on a two piece set and feel comfortable for the weather yet fashionable for the perfect Summer’s day. Two Piece Shorts Set- Necessary Clothing | Boots- Zara | Sunglasses- Similar
Even though the we’re not even mid way through Summer, I’ve already found a major go-to items which is two piece sets. I find them very easy to wear and style but the one I’m wearing int his post it possibly my top favorite. The brightness of the blue along with the white floral motifs makes for a beautiful combination which is why I went a lot more simple in the accessorizing department.
I thought these sweet aviator shades would be a great touch for this look, just for a bit of an edge for a look that could have easily came off as too cutesy. I wore this look to have brunch with a friend in Williamsburg in Brooklyn and this was the perfect outfit for me because I was able to keep cool since it was blazing hot that day in NYC.
I’d love to hear how you guys would style this look and I’m happy to be back blogging regularly again. Have an awesome day.

Oh how I’ve been dying to whip out all my Spring dresses because it’s been a ridiculously long Winter. I’ve had this aztec flared mini for sometime now, but never really thought that I’d wear it again because I was kind of over the whole aztec print on clothing. Surprizingly, one day I found it hidden in the back of my closet and decided to just throw it on for my usual chill day in Brooklyn.
Since it’s technically not full blown Summer and blazing hot, it was still okay for me to wear a chunky sweater because it got pretty chilly at times. So this light blue sweater did the trick in keeping me pretty warm and comfortable. I could have easily gone the full girlie route with this look but, that’s not really my aesthetic therefore I opted for chunky black boots for a bit of an hipster/edgy vibe to a very classic casual look.

Visiting one of my favourite places in New York, where I go to sit and think but also enjoy the view of the beautiful garden. Decked out in a school girl plaid trousers and light layers on top for a great transitional Spring attire.
Whenever I find myself having free time, I love to head all the way up to 105th street to the conservatory garden in central park. It gets really beautiful this time of the year and can be such a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the scenery if you’re into the whole being with nature thing. As for me, I went there during my Spring break and wanted to stay forever.
I wore a red and blue number that day because completely out of nowhere I felt like having some colour in my life. I believe I’ve worn this plaid trousers before here about a few months back on the blog but styled it completely different (here). This time around, I wanted to play with the colours in the plaid so I layered my crochet top underneath a beautiful baby blue vest as a way of bring out the colours then on top, I wore my navy “Sorry Not Sorry” jacket since it was a bit chilly. I’m here excited to do more shoots like this one and I can’t wait to share on here!

Cold enough to wear a jacket but warm enough to take the shorts for a ride. Spring break spent staycationing in Brooklyn and getting some much needed me time. I loved that it was such a sunny day but with cool windy breeze, which made it a perfect time to style these shorts that I’ve been wanting to wear for awhile now.
I paired the shorts with my gun mental sweater that I picked up while thrifting one day at Beacon’s Closet, I love the metallic quality of it so much plus it very breathable which makes it easy to where during the warmer weathers but with a much different styling. Since this look was more of casual attire for me I just threw on my biker jacket with a nylon trench for extra layer and also because I was 100% sure it would rain….which it didnt.

I feel like it’s about time that the weather here in New York stopped fooling around and give us some consistency. I’m so tired about complaining about the weather and I just want it to be warm already.
For this look I juxtaposed a floral dress and layered it under my cropped sweater with a black skinny pant. Since I technically can’t wear a full on mini spring dress without freezing to death, I thought it would be cool to start combining my spring clothes with the more winter items. Soon enough I’ll be pulling out all my fun Spring wear but for now I’ll have fun experimenting.

So I’m not sure whats it with me, but I’ve been particularly obsessed with this bright royal/cobalt blue and green combination. Something about two primary colours could seem a little odd and use to throw me off sometimes but clearly not anymore. It’s finally getting warm enough here in New York so I can start to wear more of my skirts and dresses again very soon.
For this look, I took a little throwback grunge element from one of my past looks…which is this beautiful olive green sweater that I ripped up quite a bit. Underneath, I thought it would be nice to layer with a complimentary flannel skirt with my favourite biker jacket. I kept it pretty simple with the make-up, I’m been going a lot more clean around the eyes instead of my usual dark cat eye, mainly because I kind of like an almost all natural look. Let me know what you think of this post, I can’t wait to start posting more often again and thanks a lot of visiting!
