I apologize for the delay on this look, it was suppose to be up on my blog way sooner but here it is.
I have to say this is one of my favorite looks ever and its super simple to put together and comfortable.
I purchased the blush bomber from Daya by Zendaya. A clothing line started by the outspoken, inspirational, and beautiful Zendaya Coleman.
Not only did I want to support her because she is an amazing role model and a black business owner, but also because I never saw a bomber as chic as this one. Her prices are also affordable!
The color is gorgeous and it is long! Leave it zipped for a chic look in itself or if you leave it open its a perfect jacket to throw over almost anything…dresses, a top and skirt/pants, or how I wore it.
I paired the bomber with a black crop top from Charlotte Russe, black leggings from Forever 21, and black boots from Nordstrom.
Head over to dayabyzendaya.com to check out this bomber and other stylish gear!
Below you will see a few of my recent natural hair looks ❤
Hello my beautiful readers! Happy Monday and I hope all is well 🙂
Recently, I had two really random realizations. Hope you caught that awesome alliteration in that previous sentence btw lol
First realization: I don’t own much purple!!! I didn’t realize it until I had to work an event this past Saturday and my internship supervisor asked me to wear purple. I said “No problem, I have purple.”
As I scanned my closet, I realized…I don’t really have purple!! I have one pair of purple jeans and that’s all and that was pretty weird and amazing to me. So I invested in a causal purple and white tank top and a plum bodycon dress pictured in this post today.
Second realization: I do the same poses in all of my pictures!!! If I really want to break into the fashion world, which I do, I have to work on my poses. So I practiced a few in the mirror and I really like the one pictured above right.
In the picture, I am wearing my plum sleeveless bodycon dress mentioned above and I paired the dress with black Steve Madden pointy toe flats. I decided to do a little more with my arms so I ran my hand through my fro and snapped the selfie. Pretty decent pose if I do say so myself ^-^
These 2 realizations may not seem like a big deal but they were both pretty cool discoveries! So hopefully you will see more purple hues in my pictures in the near future and some more really creative poses.
Anything you recently realized about your wardrobe or yourself in general? Share it in the comments below! ❤
I went to the hairdresser recently to get my ends trimmed and to make sure my hair was healthy overall…which it is! Yay! ^-^
I was looking for something fun and different to do with my hair and I really looovveeeddd the idea of puffballs and luckily my hairdresser made that happen for me.
My new look for a bit is 2 mini puffs with a part straight down the middle and then have the rest of my hair out and curly in the back.
It’s a super easy style to maintain and I think it is super adorable. My ultimate goal is to have 2 huge puffballs, but for now I am rocking my mini puffs.
The picture included in this post to the bottom right is of Shawn and I after our hairdresser date. Fresh from the hairdresser, with our ends trimmed and feeling beautiful 🙂
The other photo pictured top left is from a photo shoot I did recently for my fashion show that will take place Saturday, as mentioned before in my previous post.
In that picture I am also rocking a little bit of pink blush and purple lipstick, which is a new look for me.
So far I am loving my cute mini puffballs and look forward to more growth!!! ❤
A couple of days ago I auditioned to be in a fashion show and I made it! The fashion show is this Saturday and it is at one of the best malls in Baltimore – Towson Town Center.
A post about my fashion show and the outfits I wear will be up sometime this week, but this post is all about the outfit I wore to the audition.
I wore a burgundy cutout crop top, which I love. I think the color worked quite well with my skin complexion.
I paired the crop top with a tutu. Yes, I said it a poofy ballerina tutu. I got this tutu on sale at Charlotte Russe for just $2.99. Amazing right!?!
The tutu is white tulle and knee length. I paired this outfit with black pointy toe flats. Together, the outfit actually looked like a dress, which is pretty awesome.
For accessories I wore rhinestone cuffed earrings and my usual pearl bracelets. Also, my fro was on full display as well ❤
I am super excited for my fashion show on Saturday and even more excited to tell all of you lovelies about it!
My words to you: Love Yourself!!!
With all of the negativity in our world today, it is extremely important to love and take care of yourself.
Don’t worry about materialistic things and don’t focus on what you did wrong, missed out on, failed at, etc.
Look at yourself everyday and say “You are beautiful, amazing, intelligent, successful.”
Sometimes it’s hard to stay focused, determined, and positive when it seems like the entire world is against you, but you can do it.
This post is meant to inspire and uplift. Recently, I wore a dashiki shirt and I felt so in touch with my black culture and I felt so comfortable in my own skin.
I paired my dashiki with black skinny jeans and red TOMS.I also still have my long twists, so I decided to add dread beads to them on the same day I decided to rock my dashiki.
Every once in a while you have to get back in touch with your roots and truly love the skin, body, mind, and spirit God blessed you with.
So I know it’s hard to live in this world and during this age but remember…You Got This!!!
Love, Tati ❤
This past weekend was a much needed mid-semester break from school. I had a 5 day break where I was able to leave my college and go home to visit my family and boyfriend.
Over the break I went to church and had an awesome time! This post is about the outfit I wore there.
I still have my long Marley twists in my hair, but I decided to change it up a bit. I decided to pull it back into a half ponytail and half down style.
I love using my clothing for multiple purposes. For example, this tribal print shirt is actually a bodycon dress that I rolled up to look like a shirt.
I paired my tribal print piece with a black asymmetrical skirt. I love this skirt!
It’s my first asymmetrical piece and I just love the cut and how it looks on me.
I paired this outfit with black booties, black and pearl earrings, and pearl bracelets. I also wore light brown lipstick!
This was a chic and comfy fall look perfect for day and night
What are some of your clothing items that can be used in different ways? Do you have any asymmetrical items?
I hope you lovelies have a great weekend! ❤ ❤
