Falling Leaves


The leaves are turning and so is my wardrobe. It's time to put away the sandals (pouty face) and break out the boots. As I pulled out my boot box, I got a bit excited about all the different ways I would be infusing them into my wardrobe this season. It's one of the last days of warmer weather  so I  felt like I could get away with no tights before it gets too cold.

Balancing Act


 I can't believe it's been so long since my last post ( I didn't even post for my 32nd birthday!!!), actually I can believe I guess I just don't want to. Trust me, I love blogging - I love expressing myself through writing, I love sharing my style journey with you all and I love reading about all of yours. But my journey in both my professional and personal life are going in a direction that makes it harder to blog like I used to.

In the words of my students "So what does that mean?"

Remember the good old days when I blogged 3 times a week? Well, I'm not there anymore, once a week is something that I feel confident I can do. I'm still here & here...being silly, connecting and evolving.

I never set out on this journey to the be the  most popular, get the most likes, etc. -  I'm just a big girl defying the rules that folks with small minds created. I appreciate those who still reach out, those who keep asking me to keep blogging and throw my voice in the ring, thank you for still rocking with me, it's so appreciated.

What J is Jonesin' For: Summer isn't over just yet

As of today, my summer break is officially over. This summer has been so good to me; I explored Boston a bit and traveled all over.  Funding my summer wanderlust has meant that my actual shopping has taken a backseat, but I'm still always on the lookout. Here are the top five things I've been jonesin' for  this month: 

1. Mila Crop Set - Monif C. 


 Monif C. brings it every single time! I love the combo of the crop and maxi skirt - how nice would this be for an end of summer boat ride? 

2. Hajai Skirt with Bow Tie- The African Shop 

I started looking for print blazers for the upcoming school year and came across this Etsy shop. Not only do they have blazers, but they also have this amazing and showstopping skirt. *Swoon*

3. It's Carnival Season  so I want a  good party 


 ATI in Jamaica, Caribana in Toronto and Cropover in Barbados were all this past weekend and for me ushered in the end of the Summer Carnival Season. I'm jonesin' for a good fete to just let it out.      

4. Gel-Sendai 2 - Asics

I've been keeping up with my workouts and have really been wanting a bright pair of sneakers that also give good support. I'm happy to know that those two things are no longer hard to find together.

5. Bondage Bathers - Gisela Ramirez

     I'm hoping to get away for my birthday and I think a freakum' swimsuit like this is in order. 

What  have you been  jonesin' for?

Love & Happiness


 Who doesn't love "love"? 

 This past weekend I was so happy to witness the nuptials of one of my longtime sister-friends and her "sweet thang"!

Dress: City Chic Online; Belt: Lane Bryant; Shoes: Target 
Although I usually wear heels to weddings, I factored in  two key points 1) It was outdoors and 2) I was running around to coordinate logistics. Needless to say, I didn't even try to go that route. (Know your limits!) I loved the color, the fit and the comfort of this dress, and the slight wedge in the sandals helped me to not feel like I totally abandoned my heels. The pop of mint was to have some fun and coordinate with the wedding colors :)
