Day ‘n’ Nite

img_8201

This past weekend I visited my Alma Mater, Oakwood University to celebrate my best friend Rilene’s graduation. Oakwood is an HBCU, and at every gathering everyone comes to slay! I wanted to wear something stylish but comfortable. I opted for the suit from Premme  Premme is a plus size clothing line by Plus size blogger Gabi Fresh. In this post I’m showing you how to take an outfit from day to night.

For the day part of the graduation, I wanted a more dressy look. The jacket of the suit is way too big for me and I still wanted to wear it so I cinched it in with my Gucci belt. A belt is the perfect accessory to take your outfit to the next level. I wore these simple Steve Madden Sandals. I’ve had these shoes for over 3 years. They are so comfortable. Whenever I want to wear heels and I know I’ll be doing a lot of standing/ walking I always reach for these shoes

Because Oakwood is extra, there is another ceremony in the evening. I packed light for this trip so I planned on using the same outfit for the 2nd service. The second service is really long so I wanted to be very comfortable and laid back. Here’s what I came up with.

My feet thanked me for getting out of the heels. I also changed my lip color from nude to bright pink and added some hoop earrings. The night time look is more playful but just as cute in my opinion.

Bahama Mama

I did my first poll on Instagram and asked what you guys wanted to see from my trip to the Bahamas. Outfits or Activities. The poll was pretty close so I’ll do a mix of both, win win right?

Two weeks ago, my best friend, cousin and I went to Nassau for the weekend and we had a blast! Honestly, if there is sunshine and the beach a good time is bound to happen.

Island Living: St. Lucia

For my 25th birthday I planned a trip to Cancun with my best friends. Unfortunately, mother nature had different plans. Three days before the trip we had to cancel due to the weather conditions in Mexico. I was honestly extremely disappointed, because I was planning this trip for months now. My friends still wanted to do something with me and we literally went online and searched “islands not affected by the hurricane.” St. Lucia was one of those islands. All of my friends could not make it, but I was so grateful my faithful travel buddy and best friend of over 10 years, Kyla was able to make the trip!

Staycation Like a Boss 

This past weekend was one of my best friend’s birthday, and of course, we had to celebrate! Initially we wanted to do something international, unfortunately, that did not work out. Before this “staycation” I always felt like I had to get on a plane in order to experience new places, but this weekend proved otherwise.
