I’m working as a school counseling intern right now. First time I’ve gotten back in the work field since I started grad school about 3 years ago. Not gonna lie, I felt kinda bad going back to work, even part-time, with such a little baby at home…but you gotta do what you gotta do. I’m trying to get this degree so I can peace the fuck out of grad school. So with work comes the dreaded “work clothes.” I used to dumb down my style and throw anything together at the last minute because I just didn’t care. This time around, I figure why the hell can’t I be myself at work too? No I can’t roll up in there with a cropped top, but I can still do my thing style-wise.

I used to feel like people would think I was doing too much if I expressed myself through style at work. I mean, my style can get pretty “out there” at times. But if I’m not being myself, then who am I pretending to be…and why? So I said fuck it. You gon get this wig. This nose ring. This bright ass lipstick. And these extra sunglasses. Enjoy.

You know what’s super important to me, with me being a mom and just an overall rational human being? Dressing comfortable. Don’t get me wrong, I have those days where my jean shorts are high waisted and skin tight and I’m attempting to wear some pumps, but most of the time, regardless of how fly I look, I’m still pretty comfortable. Comfort over everything.

This is one of those lowkey outfits I threw on to take my son to a bounce and play the other weekend. He about lost his mind in that place and I was ready….Because? Comfort. Style doesn’t have to be flashy all the time. Understated is cool too.

#MooretoLove Wedding

Lifestyle


So my little brother got married this summer and I could not have been happier for him and my new sister-in-law. I don’t know many couples as perfectly matched as they are.

Wedding season is usually a lot about what you’re going to wear for the occasion, and with this being my brother’s wedding, I couldn’t just roll up in any old thing. I found this Dress the Population dress (that I’m lowkey highkey obsessed with) at Macy’s the week before the wedding. I may just pull a Tiffany Haddish and rock this at all my formal-ish affairs from now on.

Aside from that, my baby boy Langston got his first haircut so he could be extra fresh… and I wanted to shed a thug tear. Who is dis child with the crispy lining?! And why are you trying to grow up?! As adorable as his haircut is, I really just want it to grow back so he can be my little baby with the wild hair forever.

Hello Goodwill. It’s me, ya girl.

So I copped these purple beauties from Goodwill a while ago. Couldn’t wear them because I had a big ol pregnant belly, but I circled back to them and they fit perfectly now. It’s something about going into a second hand store and finding unique, quality clothes for the low low that really gets me going. Who needs shoes when you have bomb ass purple trousers?

Peekaboo Leopard

Summer is coming to a close and I’m just over here trying to wear everything in my closet before it gets too cold. The great thing about living in Atlanta though, is that it will be warm here until like November. So I can thoroughly enjoy these clothes before hoodie season pops off. I haven’t been able to wear most of this outfit since over 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I just had my second child about 3 months ago and decided once I was past that 6 week initial healing point then I would try to get control of my weight. And I sure did. Myfitnesspal got me right. I’ve been meal prepping, intermittent fasting, and jogging on my treadmill. Consistency is the key. Any other mommies out there working towards a postpartum goal?

Anyway, I’m always here for something high-waisted, cropped, or see through. Hence, this outfit.
