Spring is Here!!

I am so excited because the weather here in Los Angeles has been on another level from cloudy chilly days to endless nights of constants rain. I am so ready for the warm weather and the sun to coming shining in… and what better way to kick off Spring than with some new pieces.

I have teamed up with Walmart for their “We Dress America” Spring campaign to show you how you can look fabulous while on a budget. Additionally, Walmart is excited to share their extensive selection of styles at affordable prices that you can mix and match with your current wardrobe (which is what I did).

LOOK #1

For this look, I styled my Time and True High Rise Jeans and Prive Revaux Sunglasses with a salmon colored button up blouse and nude heels. I wanted to mix casual w/ stylish, so the accessories added a nice touch for me. These jeans are really comfortable and stretchy and I like the slight edginess given by the rips.

I really loved this look and will definitely wear it again for a night out, brunch with the girls or even my next social networking event!

I live a very active lifestyle, so finding cute workout wear is a new thing for me. Who doesn’t want to feel good AND look good when working out? When I saw these Avia Performance Crop Legging, I knew I needed them. I paired these leggings with a cute pink workout top and my white Nike’s and it perfect for look for Spring and any type of outdoor workout- running, yoga, biking, etc.

BLAZER: Sag Harbor | TOP: Vintage find  | JEANS: H& M  |  HEELS: Modern Vice | RING: Bakers


What do you get when you mix a tomboy with fashion? You get a dope a** shoot in a dope a** setting! I definitely put my skills to use hence you see me on the train box car (YES I did climb up to the top in my heels *2 snaps*). 

This shoot was so fun... from strutting on the abandoned train tracks to climbing the box car. This outfit was perfect for the setting and surprisingly enough, all of the colors (the background and my outfit) blended well together to bring this Spring look all together. I decided to play off pastels and neutral and make my blazer, belt and lippie be the focal point for this look. I have been into blazers lately because they can make any outfit look good, especially on struggle days when you are stressing over what to wear.

What are your go to staple pieces?

Now for the next installment of my DOPE A** friends edition.... my boo's SUBCULTURE!!

Subculture is a style duo cultivated by Kareema Black and Autumn Foreman. They got their start by working events and shows for Cultivating Cultures LLC.  While Kareema is busy with PR and Marketing for the company, Autumn styles shoots, drives creative influences and designs original pieces for their brand. This past year, the majority of their designs were hand picked, one of a kind pieces and they made a name for themselves styling photo-shoots for different artists and models in the Atlanta area. 

The past 8 months, Subculture has been expanding their brand, and reaching a broader audience. They have built a team of photographers, fitness gurus, models, stylists, make up artists, creative directors and more. By building a team, Subculture has become a source for entertainment, community outreach, and fashion in the Atlanta area..... With that being said, once a month, Subculture has an underground Sunday called “Whiskey and Yoga.”

Subculture is a brand that stands behind unity, love and openness, Subculture plans to make a lot of noise as they continue to develop their brand, meet new people and travel with their ideas.

I am loving this jumpsuit that they styled for me, it's perfect for spring because it is very lightweight. Since the color is very bold and bright, we paired it with a tan bandage top and nude strappy heels so that the jumpsuit would remain the focal point.
