Hey everyone! How are things? …it’s been a lot, right? I’ve been mostly focused on being a mom and a graduate student right now. And trust me, that is plenty. Overflow. When I first found out that my graduate program was transitioning to online learning, I really thought I was gonna show up to classes (on Zoom) in my “house clothes.” Nah playa. The devil is a lie. See I like to dress. I like to style clothes. AKA my closet is my playground.
So as long as I’m home based, I’m gonna get up and get dressed for the day and so will my kids. We gon be comfy but cute. Pajamas all day was fun for a little while but nah. We off that.
Then we can feel good and look good when we go on walks around the neighborhood. How are you and your family settling in at home?
Hey, hey! I hit up the Saint Jhn concert in Atlanta recently. I was excited for the show because Saint Jhn’s music is dope. His tone, the vibes, and the general aesthetic is fire. He has 2 compilations on Apple Music. I recommend you check them out. If you take a listen, drop me a comment about what you think.
I was overall happy with the show, but something was definitely amiss during the performance because you could see it on Jhn’s face. My guess is that something was off with the sound. After the first verse of a lot of the songs, he would cut the music to do an a cappella thing. Idk about that, but regardless, it was still a fun show because the songs go hard. Atlanta was the second stop of the tour, so if Saint Jhn is in your city, swing through. I fucks with it.
And as you can see, I switched up my look. Hey girl! The blonde is gone and these bundles have arrived, lol. I rocked long straight hair for a decent amount of my life, so I miss it sometimes. The weather was letting me live my best style life too so I was not mad. Let me know if you’re digging the look in the comments.
Hey! I was at the A3C Afrobashment show at the Tabernacle. I’m a big fan of Afrobeats at this point so I was pretty excited to check out a good show. Initially, this show had: Afro B, Mr Eazi, Koffee, Tiwa Savage, and Burna Boy. As it got closer to the show date, Tiwa and Burna Boy were removed from the lineup. How? I was super dissapointed, but I still went out to see Mr. Eazi, Afro B, & Koffee. I tell you one thing, Afrobeats music is the truth. So “feed-good”, so swaggy, just everything. And Koffee and her band were super talented.
Did anybody else check out this show or see these artists recently? Thoughts? Who’s your favorite Afrobeats artist? I’m really digging Burna Boy, Wizkid, & Juls right now.
Anyway, this is what I wore. Pants from H&M, a (quintessential Atlanta) men’s sequins t-shirt that says “The Plug”, and creepers for good measure. It is spooky season, right?

I was having a real yellow moment when I visited Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for a networking event. Hair, skin tone, dress, bag….all of it.
So naturally I became curious about the psychology and meaning of the color yellow. This is the quick version of what I found:
Yellow: Uplifting, happy, fun, hopeful, practical thinker, networker, the mind, intellect.
Whew chile, the alignment.
Yea it’s technically Spring, but Winter is still out here trying to be seen at least a few hours out of the day. So the wardrobe is in transition. Atlanta weather right now is a little bit all over the place. But I suppose that’s always been the nature of early Spring. In the last week I’ve worn a coat, sandals, shorts, a sweater….and seriously needed rainboots. Went from turning on the heat one night to turning on the air a couple days later. This is foolishness.
Here’s an outfit I threw together last month. Layering, like I always do. Especially helpful when the weather is a little funny. Love this vintage plaid sweater and these adorable rose gold Nine West booties.
If you come across this post, drop me a comment letting me know what city you’re in. Is Atlanta the only place with weather that’s still flip flopping?

The semester just ended and I’m finishing up my internship next week. I’m so excited to take a break from school for a few weeks. So when the homie hit me up asking about going out Friday night, it was a yes. Had to make sure the babies were straight at home, but then…bet.
Good times. When I was headed back to my car in the Uber, we all struck up a good convo about nightlife in Atlanta. Don’t you love it when you have a cool Uber driver? I was legit in that piece taking notes on my phone 😂. See even though it’s been more than 2 years since I moved down here, I still feel relatively new to Atlanta. I have no idea where to go if I want a certain vibe or experience. But I want to. If you know where the spot is in Atlanta… whether it’s a big club or a dope hole in the wall, lemme know.
I had fun putting this outfit together. Most of it came from a thrift store, which I almost prefer. Thrift stores are just dope. I’ve had this collarless jacket for years and it’s not going anywhere. It’s beautiful and so well made. I’m also in love with these high heel mules from Nine West. Mules have made a serious come back and I, for one, am not mad. 🙂
What do you typically shop for in thrift stores? I’m usually looking for vintage jackets/blazers, blouses, high waist pants, and purses.
