Feeling Minty

Feeling Minty

Hey My loves!

How are you? So much has been happening in the world and in my life right now I don’t even know where to begin gosh. It’s as if one minute I’m totally fine and then next minute I hear something that triggers my emotion and then I’m in a bad mood again. But i’m sure I’m not the only one experiencing this right? It also doesn’t help that my hormones are legit cray cray right now some months I see my period twice FML. I’ve been meaning to see a gynecologist forever but with covid I couldn’t -definitely setting up some time to do that once my cycle is over. Oh and another thing I’ve noticed in the past month is that whenever I’m Pmsing I suddenly have difficulty sleeping at night-before it was the opposite and not being able to sleep is not fun believe me. I’m up thinking about what I’m going to have for lunch the next day and WrapQueen shoots smh.

Hmm… what else last week I found out that a woman my Dad once dated who I liked very much passed away and let me tell you that was heavy. Especially because I found out so randomly, I literally got a notification from FB and I saw her comment on an old post of mine- went to her page and saw someone wrote RIP- I was like wtf -it scared me so much and then as I read more comments I saw it was actually true. I felt horrible and cried because I stopped talking to her for 2 years after my Dad and her broke up because she was hurt and I didn’t feel comfortable discussing him with her.I had to be loyal and I chose my Father, do I regret it a lil bit yes and no- as she was so involved in my Dad’s side of the family, sisters etc who I had to cut off for my own mental health -so dealing with someone that is connected to them wouldn’t be ideal. But she was a good woman so sweet to my son and to me, more of a grandparent than my own parents, so I cried I cried alot because she was definitely gone too soon and I wish I could tell her that I did care for her I just had to choose me. Then to top it off the news about Chadwick Boseman really took me by surprise and hurt a lot as well. We were all so excited to see the next Black Panther movie and to know that his life was cut short -hurt deep.

Okay so now that I’ve let you all know what’s been going on with me, let’s get to the fun part lol my outfit. Originally this dress caught my eye in the black color as a girl can never have too many black dresses- but I also loved this color mint as well and thought it would compliment my skin tone so much -that I had to have it. It reminded me of something Sarah Jessica Parker form Sex in the City would wear and I was here for it. It’s such a fun and playful dress. I decided to wear my white sandals and bag with it- although you can totally rock this with a clear heel as well.

The dress is layered which came as a surprise to me. So you have a body con fitting dress and the tulle dress on top.

Would you believe me if I told you this was the first time I wore these heels, I’ve had them for 3 years and wore them with this dress …I’m in love super comfy, gonna try and get some more wears hopefully before Fall starts hehe.

Leopard Dress And Sneakers

Leopard Dress And Sneakers

Hey My loves!

Now this is an outfit that is a bit outside my comfort zones for so many reasons lol. I actually really wanted a leopard dress for the longest time and my plan was to wear it in the Fall with my cropped leather jacket and some booties which are a bit more mee but I decided it to create a look for the Summer wearing my crop denim jacket and white sneakers instead. Sneakers is definitely outside my comfort zone. Heels are just the way to my heart lol; but I didn’t like the look of this dress with heels, sneakers gave it a sorta cool girl vibe which I adore. Oh and I decided to show off all my hair which I’m beginning to be obsessed with -my high puff was giving me all sorts of life the growth is amazing-but I must admit that I did miss my headwrap -sigh which I hate gohhhh because I would love to start showing my hair off more but I’m always like dang this look would be ten times better with a headwrap. Believe it or not I’m the most confident wearing my headwraps it’s become a part of me now, who I am, my look. It’s like my cape or blankey hahah I feel safe when I’m wearing it.

Two of my favorite shows are The Carrie Diaries” and “Gossip Girl” and this look reminds me of a look “Carrie would have worn back in the 80’s and a look that “Serena” from “Gossip Girl” would have worn to meet up with “Blair and “Chuck” hahha comment below if you agree.

“The Carrie Diaries”
“Gossip Girl”

Another reason why I wanted to try the whole sneaker paired with a dress look, is because it’s super trendy right now, and the girls who I’ve been pinning on pinterest kills it every time -they just look bomb. So effortless and carefree such a vibe. Although I don’t think this style was for me- only because I need my heels when wearing a dress mehnnn especially when the dress is this sexy! I might however try this look out one last time before the summer ends with a solid color satin dress instead like the pix below.We shall see! It’s like mixing hard and soft. Remember when girls would rock their tulle skirts/dresses with their leather jackets a few years ago. I definitely did! What are you thoughts? Have you guys tried the dress and sneaker look? Do you love it?
