Sporty Spice

This weekend I headed to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate all things hair- Curlfest. This is year two for me, and what a difference a year makes. The plethora of melanin was beautiful. I definitely wanted to capture all the beauty of Curlfest, so Grown and Curvy and I took tons of pictures of the event. Trust me, if you have not attended Curlfest, make sure you add it to your calendar next summer. It is an amazing event. 

I was given the name Sporty Spice because I am definitely  all about athleisure. Comfy but cool is definitely the name of the game especially in this NY humidity. I ordered these wide leg track pants from Eloquii a while back and I knew it would they would perfect. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a good cute dress or skirt, but when it's hot and lots of walking is involved, I like to wear pants. I don't want to worry about chub rub. I just want to enjoy my time in the sun. I am wearing a 16 in the pants, and they fit wonderfully. They are the perfect length for me to wear sandals. If you love a wide leg pant, you will not be disappointed. 

I paired the pants with their printed crop top. I went with a 18 in the top because I needed room for the girls, but I did have room. I wonder if the 16 would have fit better, but the back coverage was perfect so I was happy over all with the 18. I will say this- the straps are long, and were slipping at times throughout the day. It would have been nice if the straps were adjustable so that it would prevent the slippage. 

I finished off my look with another cool headwrap from the Wrap Life and bold red sunnies. The wrap is called Tembi, and this is one of my favorite wraps. The bold color brings out the best in any outfit I wear. If you love a good head wrap and don't like to shy away from color, get the Tembi. You will not be disappointed. 

As for the event, me and my blogger boo's had so much fun. Stay tuned for my next post with all of the beautiful ladies from Curlfest. Later lovers!!


I am one of those women that say I'm going to take some time off, and before I know it months go by. I was this close to repeating such once again, but I made it my mission to take a couple of days off just to lounge around, and just enjoy some me time. To celebrate my day off and the gorgeous convertible driving weather (along the coast with my big shades and scarf tied around my neck blowing in the wind. I enjoy old Hollywood movies, especially one's from the 50's & 60's.), I treated myself to some comfort food and light shopping. For such an easy, breezy day, I went with Eloquii's Wide Leg Pants and Scoop Neck Crop Tee. What I like about these pants is that it is made with a light weight non-stretch fabric that drapes. I have tried other types of wide leg pants with stretch in it, and the leg winds up wrapping around the ankle while you are walking. For me, the lighter fabrication works best. Since the pants easily stay up high on my waist due to the elastic in the back, I decided to rock the crop top to balance the proportions. Besides being a fun and easy print, I love the length on these pants. Normally when wearing wide leg pants, I have to wear heels in order to avoid the pants from seriously dragging, these are perfect with flats. I definitely recommend these pants if you are looking for a great wide leg pant to wear with a cute sandal. My handbag is the newest member to the family that I got on sale from Kate Spade. The Carson bag can be used as a clutch or a crossbody. I should have taken a picture of the inside, but it has a great grid print and tons of pockets. I enjoyed my day off, and coming up next will be what I did on my night off. Muah lovers!!
