{Personal Style} The Green Team... And Friendships


There's no secret about it: I love all things pink. Seriously, I live for the color pink and think it goes with pretty much everything.

But, I've fallen for this green jacket from the moment that I laid eyes on it. I've been wearing it so often, and it kinda makes me feel as though I'm cheating on the color pink.

[dress, jacket: H&M; shoes: Steve Madeen]
This weekend, my girlfriend, Nika celebrated her birthday in a very sophisticated and chic way. A group of us gathered together at Calle Ocho, a restaurant on the Upper West Side for an evening of dinner, drinks, and girl talk. It was a lot of fun and made me realize just how important friendships really are. (Nika was one of the first people that I met at college -- ten years ago -- and we've remained friends through distance, time, and... life.)


I stepped out with my green jacket, and paired with a black mini dress and patterned tights, which made me feel pretty retro. I finished the look off with stacked bracelets and peep-toe suede pumps. Simple and trendy and total sweetness.


As busy as we all are with work, career-building, grad school, side hustles, boo-thangs, finding ourselves, growing, maturing, figuring our ish out, and, in my case, motherhood, it's so important that we take time out to enjoy each other and celebrate life.

Seems that I'm being reminded of this quite often these days.


Hope you all have a stylish week!

  3. Hi pretty!

    I just saw your comment talking about peplums,and I have to say that they dont make you look wider at all,the opposite! I used to think that until I got a black peplum dress and now I love it, makes my figure more sexy.

    Btw, I like a lot that green <3 I think it looks good on dark skins (on mine too xD)
