Buh Bye Summer

Even though NYFW brings out the best of Fall fashion, it’s actually still Summer until 9/22. To commemorate an awesome summer, I wanted to formally say goodbye with this collab that I did with my booski ShaKera of The Real Sample Size.

While out in ATL, her photographer extraordinaire Alfred from Charis Solutions Photography took some amazing photo’s of us enjoying the fun in the sun. If you are in the Houston area, definitely hit him up, you will not be disappointed.

Sunshine calls for a great print. I went with the strapless jumpsuit, because if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been living in jumpsuits all summer. Since the jumpsuit was the perfect length on my short frame of 5’5”, I was able to pair the jumpsuit with the Darcy floral sandal. Throughout the summer, I received tons of compliments on these. Rocking metallic footwear is an easy way to tie your whole look together without having to go with traditional black.

ShaKera went with an asymmetrical skirt in the same print with a flutter sleeve tee. As a tee shirt addict, I like the flutter sleeve for a fun update on a classic piece. This should definitely come in more colors cause you can wear this tee all year long. A heel lover, ShaKera went with her oldie but goodie’s from Steve Madden.

I will say I did a lot this summer. I tried a bunch of new restaurants with the bf. Tried Haitian food for the first time. Was honored as Blogger of the Year alongside the IG Wives from Full Figured Fashion Week. Got to see the wonders of black beauty at Curlfest. Went to the TCF Style Expo in ATL for the 2nd year in a row and (and bought a lot of tee’s). Danced the night away at my best friends birthday party. Went to a BBQ. Supported my boyfriend by going to his basketball games to watch him coach. Sat outside and just let the sun shine on face. I laughed, I rested, and I shopped. I did everything but dip my toes in some sand. All and all, I had a great summer. I feel like summer ended at a cool note by attending Textures on the Runway and Curvy Con.

BTW these pictures capture me and ShaKera perfectly. Laughs and more laughs.
