Hello again beautiful souls,
I met this young man some years ago, well in my teen years. In a little note to me, he wrote “…you seem to have a beautiful spirit” and that, not the kiss still lingers. Well, maybe both. Haha! What led me to travel so far back in time? My opening greeting in this post. I know it means something to be told you have a beautiful body, a beautiful voice, a beautiful spirit, anything! For me, it means so much more if it is internal beauty. So I hope you hone and retain your inner beauty and let it radiate through whatever you are doing.
Oh memories! Now let’s talk about these looks you are about to see.
My collaboration with designer Yetunde Sarumi didn’t end with the first pink top I styled in 4 ways. See here. Today’s post highlights the same top, only in a different color – yellow. And it just shows how one item in your closet can be interpreted severally, given a different structure, texture, shape or color. I know you’ll love this.
As the name suggests, this look can be worn to any and every casual gathering. Think of brunch with the ladies, your 1 year-old cousin’s birthday, a perfectly sunny day about town or any event you want to seem dressed up for but not too dressy. Being a colorful soul naturally, I could work this to dinner as well. I’ll just color up the atmosphere and not worry about the stares I receive from everyone who’s obviously wearing black. *shrugs*. It is YOUR style!
If your boss walks into the office looking like this, you’re either getting fired (and she’s celebrating in advance) or it’s about to be an incredibly good day! 😃
I would honestly still file this under classy looks but hey, if we are talking work wear, then this is certainly a chic work look. As an employee at a 9-5, won’t it kick bullets if everyone didn’t show up in the same grungy black clothes everyday? Well, this is your chance to let your own light shine instead of letting the dimness in the room overshadow yours. And for happy hour, it’s easy – toss out your work purse (please not literally) in favor of a shoulder bag as you’ll see below.
