#OOTD: Pop of Summer

Hello Beautiful!

Summer 2017 is almost here and I can FEEL it! The heat & humidity is back (not that they went anywhere), and everyone is doing anything for a little cool down!

In the Bahamas, I feel like we have Summer all year round. Despite a little cold in February and a little rain in April, the Sun still shines like a bright Summer day.

Summer is the “Fun” season! And I like to dress accordingly. My favorite fashion trend to wear in the summer is Color Block.

I know they say, “It’s Better in the Bahamas” and that is definitely true in the Summer.

To kick off my summer, I went to a Fete (French for Party). It was on the beach, crowded with people and nothing but good vibes all night long.

Here’s what I wore:

Electric Blue Monokini

Yellow Linen Shorts

Neon Pink Pineapple Clasp Belt

Gold Strap-Up Sandals

Gold Jewelry

Black & White “Bahamas Chain of Islands Clutch” from Pursenal Paradiyse

#OOTD: Petals + Pumps

Hello Beautiful!

Spring Fashion is best known for Floral Prints & Appliqués, so when I got invited to the Pandora Bahamas 2nd Anniversary “Petals & Pumps” Mixer, I felt that I should bid Spring a farewell by wearing the theme… Petals & Pumps!

I don’t know about You but, I dress from my feet upward. So I already knew I wanted to wear my blue suede pumps. They’re my absolute favourite. I just needed a dress to compliment them.

Luckily for Me, there was a dress waiting  at one of my favourite clothing stores in Nassau, Bahamas, JaDazzles!

No matter the occasion, JaDazzles always has an outfit that fits my body, and my style! Pumps check! Dress Check! I was on My way to the Pandora event.

Here’s what  I wore:

  • A Floral Bodycon Over-the-Shoulder Dress
  • Blue Suede Liliana Pumps
  • A Gold Metal Clutch (without the strap)
  • Michael Kors Jewelry

#OOTD: Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean

Hello Beautiful,

One day I was scrolling through Instagram (ya’ll know I love the ‘gram; follow Me here), and I came across this quote meme that read, ” Make Choices that Liberate You”.

I kept scrolling, but that quote stayed. It stayed in My mind and I would hear it echoing every day, “Make Choices that Liberate You. Make Choices that Liberate You. Make Choices that Liberate You.”

So, I did just that. Made Choices to Liberate Me.

I braided My hair, because My relaxed hair would take too much time to fix in the mornings before work. Braids are much easier.

I walked away from relationships that made Me feel more anxious than at ease.

I applied for a new position that will give me more structure in my schedule, than shifts that felt like they stole all my time.

With each choice I made, I started to feel lighter, and free. Now, when someone asks how I’m doing I can honestly reply, “Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean.” like Rizzo in the movie Grease.

Speaking of peachy, and feeling light, I had lunch last week and those two words describe My outfit of the day perfectly.

Here’s what I wore:

  • A Peach Crop Top & Trouser Pants Set
  • Nude Three Strap Sandal Heels
  • Gold Hoops
  • Gold Michael Kors Watch
  • Multiple Beaded Bracelets
  • Midi Ring
  • Nude Clutch

#OOTD: My Art

Hello Beautiful!

If you’ve ever visited my Instagram page – @242blqrze, you’ve possibly wondered if I’m the same person in all of my pics.

I mean I look the same, but my style of dress changes so much. Whenever someone ask me to describe my style, I’m unable to give them a straightforward answer. But my honest answer would be similar to Rihanna’s at the 2017 Met Gala.

Andre’ Leon Talley asked her to “describe Avant Garde” in her world, “in music and fashion.” Rihanna then said, “I love Art, and I think its such a free range of expression and you can do whatever you want in that space… to be whatever you want, however you want.”

I feel the same way.

I don’t play instruments, I can’t draw. Style is My Art.

So last week, I wore “My Art”, to go admire some street art on my island. It’s a wall mural by Bahamian Artist June Collie entitled “The Beat Drum Club”. My outfit is perfect for saying “Hello” to Summer and “See You Later” to Spring!

Here’s what I wore:

  • A White Off the Shoulder Bell Sleeve A-Line Dress
  • Colourful Print Strapped Up Wedges
  • Gold Disc Bib Necklace
  • Assortment of Bracelets
  • Vintage Blue Stone Ring
  • A Native Bahamian Straw Handbag

#OOTD: Clear & Colour

Hello Beautiful!

Its been a while since I blogged about fashion and my outfit of the day.

The truth is I haven’t been putting on no outfits, and going anywhere in the day. I’ve been so consumed with my work schedule that my social life (not that I ever had much of one) declined and I wasn’t shopping for new clothes, because I haven’t worn my old ones yet.

I’ve been in this state for months, but Spring has a way of renewing things like flowers, houses, and mindsets. One such mindset was my own, and one day I decided I’m going to get dressed up, go out and Spring my life forward!

With a mix of old clothes and new accessories, here’s what I wore:

  • Side Cut-Out Jeans Body Suit
  • Green Tea Length Skirt
  • Neon Pink Pineapple Clasp Belt
  • Clear Strap Lucite Heels
  • Custom-made “Bahama Mama” Pursenal Paradyse Wristlet
  • Minimal Jewelry

This outfit works because my jeans body suit & lucite heels are neutral, while my belt and skirt adds colour to the look.
