Different Levels, Different Devils

A lesson from the old southern grandma I never had

How to style a neckerchief

I have been lucky enough, fortunate enough, blessed and highly favored enough to get most of the things I want out of life. I know that sounds braggadocious, and you're probably rolling your eyes, but it hasn't been without hard work, family, friends, and a lot of divine intervention. I take only a fraction of the credit. But yeah, it's fair to say that I get what I want—no, I get what I work for. Sue me.

Gone Lemonading

Ladies, get your baseball bats ready

I've dabbled in Lemonade inspired attire before, but after binging on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and seeing Titus' truly moving comedic homage, I was inspired to have a part deux. Ladies, pull out your golden yellow garb—we're going a-lemonding.

The Summer Shoulder Shimmy

Sorry cleavage, this is just not your summer 

The best off the shoulder tops for summer

How to wear gingham

This is perhaps the closest I've felt to Beyoncé in a long time. First off, who knew watermelon juice was a thing that could happen? And secondly (or is it second off?) who knew it was so refreshing? Certainly not I, but this weekend when I found a little Brooklyn coffee shop with a fresh squeezed pitcher, I discovered the endless wonder of this summer fruit. Look, if watermelon is good enough for Bey, it's good enough for me.

Eternal Disappointment of the Sunless Life

Well, at least it was warm for two days last week

I spend a lot of time compiling lists. To-do lists for work, grocery lists for home, and things-I-will-buy-when-I-become-a-rich-housewife lists because a girl can dream, right? Today's list is brought to you by the sudden change of seasons in New York; the thing that allowed me to wear shorts and a tank one day and forced me to wear this jumpsuit and a jacket then next.

Happiness Is A Warm Island

Thoughts while sitting under a banana tree

At this very moment I am sitting on a lounge chair around the pool and under rows of coconut and banana trees of my Air BnB'd home for the week in Curaçao. Life is good. Even if I weren't on this amazing tropical vacation, I'd probably be singing the same tune. Life is good.  Life is good.
