Bright Colors All Spring!

Hey My loves!

It’s Spring in NYC. Well that’s until today ….when we had a snow storm hahaha smh. I literally have to laugh cuz wtf bruh ….how was I wearing open toe heels just this weekend and now I’m in winter boots shoveling my front door steps. Anyway I’m so happy to see color all over the stores right now. I mean I never needed color to be on trend as you all know that’s pretty much all I wear. It’s my love language lol but it’s nice to have options.
I’ve had this orange pullover for a while now. It actually came with a skirt but the skirt fitted all types wrong so I will never wear it lol …but this top I can’t get enough of, decided to pair it with my green bag for that good ole color block look and I love it. Oh and these jeans are hunny…I’m obsessed -got them a while back too will def link. They fit amazingly. I do wish it was a tad longer to hide my shoes but that’s just my preference; I still think they are pretty hot. Super comfy and I felt like I could eat my life away in these as it was so roomy at the waist. Oh and I felt like I was back in HS with these cargo pants. Added my favorite headwrap at the moment to complete the look and wahlahhhh.
We spent the day in Brooklyn as the hubbz had to teach a class. Once he was done we went to try a new spot in BK called PEPPERS Jerk Chicken, I do think I have to visit another location as the chicken was definitely not peppery lol. I ofc spilled sauce on my pants lol, We then headed back into the city to snap this pic and took our dog Cookie for a walk …she was horrible hahah. I swear I wish we got her when we lived in the city; as now she’s used to the quiet life, the soft life, so noises and all these random dogs in the city have her on edge lmao …so embarrassing. That’s it for now guys gotta go make dinner.

Statement Coats

So there is nothing I love more than statement coats, why? because it instantly makes you look like you’re doing the most when in actuality you are not. When wearing statement coats; what you wear underneath can be very simple. A tee/ graphic tee, Turtle neck, button down shirt any of those options can suffice. I decided to go with my trusty white tee as you can never go wrong. A statement coat doesn’t have to have a pattern, it could simply be a bright colored coat or a coat with lots of details. A standout piece.
I’ve had this coat for awhile but I refused to part ways as I can totally wear this in so many ways. I could do an all black look or all ivory. So don’t think this will be the last time you see this coat. I’m all about re-wearing clothes. You guys, you don’t always have to buy something new when going to an event, you should always be able to shop your closet. Mix and match your items, if you wore a skirt with a look last time, try wearing pants the next etc, have fun with it. 

Quick story about what I did this particular day. We ended up driving to the post office as it closes at 6pm on Sundays and we had to get there before closing. We then took these pictures and decided to grab a bite to eat. We tried a ramen spot which I wasn’t too impressed with- but we were all starving. We then decided to go to HomeGoods to pick up a few things for our dog and a few lil things for the house, candles, table books etc.

Spring Are you there?

Hey my loves!

So I really would like to know how the heck did February come and finish so fast because I mean it’s practically done …..sigh or is it just me? I had so many plans for this month but this month had other plans for me. I somewhat feel defeated but I know there’s a reason I had to slow down. We got so much snow recently and the temperatures were super cold where I live; that all I wanted to do is stay under the covers and work on Wrap Queen. I must say I am proud of myself though as I’m still crushing goals behind the scenes; even if it’s not the ones I want yet. Do you guys ever feel that way? where you had so much planned but then it got pushed back yet somehow you still got stuff done hahah but just not the stuff you originally wanted lol. I hope that made a lil sense. I digress.

I decided to go simple with the outfit today as sometimes less is more. A basic top and a nice fitting pair of statement denim is all you need sometimes when you have no idea what to wear. Honestly; jeans are my fave thing to wear when in doubt. Yeappp. Jeans and a nice top and what -A statement blazer lol.

One of my fave ways to dress up a simple look is to add accessories . A bold necklace or earrings can instantly spice up a look. and ofcourse you guys know I love to wear my headwraps. It was actually 56 degrees out and lately that feels like Spring so I enjoyed not layering although we didn’t go far, James and I went for a bite to eat and came right back home. Also can we talk about my jeans? It’s actually not a skinny jean which is literally all I wear. Love how sophisticated, chic and tall these boot cut denims make me look. I plan to wear the heck out of them this spring.

Thanks for reading guys!

Structured Blazers- Yes please!

Structured Blazers- Yes please!

If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know that I love a good blazer. I love all types of fits as well. I know most prefer the oversized fits only. But I can definitely appreciate a tighter fit for a sexier look, maybe date night with the hubbz or drinks with your girls after work. I especially enjoy a structured blazer. Structured blazers are everything. It gets its name from the cut of the shoulder. The shoulder pads sits a bit past the sleeve head, which gives the blazer the perfect silhouette that compliments the body’s natural shape. As you can see in the above pic the shoulder pads gives the illusion of a smaller waist even though the blazer is oversized.
I love that blazers can be easily worn and will have you looking put together with little to no effort. Every woman should have at least one well fitting blazer in her closet, preferably black or a nude like the one I’m wearing. Why? because it’s versatile. It can be worn in a professional setting ie; at the office a business meeting even a zoom call lol. You can literally throw on a blazer over your pajama top and no one will suspect a thing. Hahah please tag me on IG if you do @islandchic77 I’d love to see.

Thought I would share this outfit look -wearing a blazer incase you needed some Spring/ Summer Inspo

Thanks for reading- And let me know in the comments your thoughts about blazers. Do we love them hate them?
