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