East African Gal

So it's supposedly Spring in the L.A. area, however, it does not feel like it at all. It has been more cooler and cloudy days than sunny and warm days. Hey, I am NOT complaining! As a Midwest gal (St. Louis to be exact), I am use to experiencing all 4 seasons and what TRUE Spring feels like (of course with more rain). But I did not expect L.A. to be this cool.

Not sure if many of you know, but I moved to the L.A. area from Atlanta last August to start my Doctorate program in Clinical and Neuropsychology (YAY!!) and I have just finished my first year. I could not be more proud of myself, for being able to accomplish my dream of getting into a doctoral program. The journey was long, but it was well worth it. This was the FIRST and ONLY school that I applied to and voila, ya girl got in! With that being said, I literally uprooted my life across the country and went that came a yard sale and everything went from furniture to most of my clothes. Needless to say, this year has been heavily focused on school, my clinical internship and work, so there has been NO TIME to go shopping.

.... and that's where this lovely outfit comes in.

This lovely creation happens to be 2 different dresses that I conveniently turned into a top and a pencil skirt ensemble. Desperate times call for desperate measure right? However, this is what makes fashion so beautiful, when you can create unique looks that look amazing.

African print anything is ALWAYS in season because it is so versatile and comes in an assortment of color patterns and it always makes me feel good when I can give an ode to the other half of my heritage. As always, black never goes out of style and I love how this dress converted very easily into a top and the cut outs add for a sexy and playful look.

I have really been all over the place with this blog.... I KNOW.  I have gone through yet another life changing epiphany moment (hey, it's an AQUARIUS thing), BUT after blogging off and on for almost 4 years now, I have had my "ah ha" moment about not just the direction I want to take my blog this year, but also my life, so stay tuned for some pretty awesome AND consistant dope shit!!

:::::::::::: OK RANT OVER, BACK TO THE FASHION ::::::::::::

I am loving this play on the neutral and brown/ red family here. I literally woke up with this outfit on my mind and it came out perfect for this sunny yet chilling day in the A. I love the contrast between the top and bottom because this outfit literally screams "move over winter, spring is on it's way"!

I am really excited to bring you all more of my fashion looks because I think I have great style and would love to inspire you all to step outside your comfort zone with finding your unique style.
