Carefree BMW

So this one is a late post… hmmm let’s see, back on March 29th I got to participate in a photo shoot for project carefree bmw. What is that you ask? A movement started by poet Sadiyah Bashir and photographer Soda Ahmed to embrace the culture, religion and beauty of the Black Muslim Woman.  To watch the full video click here.

What did I wear to this photo shoot you ask? Great question! I finally got to wear my Amanda Valentine Maxi color block dress!!! Ok who watches project runway? If you do, you’ll know who Amanda Valentine is. She went to fashion week in the finale and had two maxi dresses. I LOOOOOVED both of them, they are so bohemian chic. Anyhow I stalked her website until she put them for sale, and I got one. I love this dress. Quite honestly though, I was nervous about how this dress would look on me since I’m not a size 0 you know. A couple of my friends thought it would look like a sheet on me. Well I took a chance anyway because I loved it so much and I think it looks ok. What do you think? Oh and by the way, how fabulous is this necklace?? My friend got it for me as a gift and I LOVE it!

Weekend Casual…

Hi guys!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was gorgeous! This is going to be a short post… so one challenge I have is figuring out what to wear on the weekends. 80% of my wardrobe is work wear and so on the weekends I’m always trying to figure out what to wear. Recently I started just wearing shirtdresses with cardigans, or work shirts with cardigans and jeans. Here is what I wore this past weekend.  Most of these items are old so I don’t have links for them, but the stores I got them from area always selling similar stuff. The top is a sleeveless shirt dress from Old Navy last summer, Cardigan is from Target, Boots from Famous foot wear and the jeans from Long Tall Sally from like 8 years ago lol.
