Red, White & Blue





Happy Memorial Day!

This day is set aside not just to go to the beach and BBQ, but to remember all who have given their lives fighting for freedom. Though observed only in America I remember every person who has ever fought no matter their nationality. Being Nigerian and Jamaica but raised in America, I have a lot to celebrate. I always loved using my style to identify with everything that makes me..me! Although some may say wearing red, white and blue can be cheesy during patriotic holidays there is always a way to upgrade an outfit to be more stylish! So for all the patriotic holidays here is some style inspiration! 






Style a midi dress with a denim chambray shirt and slides for an effortless chic look.




I added a pop of color with a red head wrap using Ankara fabric my father sent me from Nigeria and a red lip.






I finished off the look with a blue and white nautical cross-body and a denim choker.

Midi Dress: Ross

Chambray shirt: Ross

DIY Pom Pom Shoes!




DIY POM POM SHOES!

Revamp your shoes to this hot summer style! 



Hey Loves!

You all know how much I love new trends! This summer you are going to be seeing a lot of bright and colorful clothes and accessories like the pom pom shoes! These cute little pom POM's can be seen on heels, sandals, shirts, bags, etc and add some cute colorfullness to any outfit to make it pop. Seeing these shoes made me want to DIY them and also do a shoe revamp!




 I had some old heels that needed some TLC, so I stopped by my local craft store and picked up some pom poms for less than $5.00 and some suede string because I wanted pom pom tassles which is totally optional. Have fun with this and do whatever your heart desires! 




Here is the tutorial!
