When this dress arrived, I was excited to try it on. I was a bit skeptical about the size because it looked tiny when I pulled it out the bag. Nevertheless, I tried it on and it fit! I adored the mixing of my favorite banana-leaf print with garden roses and butterflies but then I realized something about the dress that made me second-guess keeping it.

I've been missing home a lot lately and thinking of all the things I'm yet to do there. I was too young to travel alone when I lived in Guyana and unless my mom or sisters were going, I wasn't. Not even with friends because Mom was not about the "my friends are going, why can't I?" life.
I moved to New York when I was 18 years old and my trips back home are usually spent with family and friends leaving very little time to explore. Needless to say, there is still so much for me to experience in Guyana!

We're less than a week away from Memorial day and in my mind that's the beginning of Summer! I know it's not the official calendar date but family and friends usually get together on this weekend for activities that are synonymous with Summer. Grills are being dusted off right now and many are prepping for a weekend BBQ or picnic. Some may even venture to the beach if the weather permits (fingers crossed).
It's also that time of year where Cherries (one of my favorite American fruits) starts appearing on fruit stands and in supermarkets. If you're wondering why I call it an American fruit it's because they're different from the cherries we have in Guyana. The first time I tasted one was almost 11 years ago when I first moved to the US. We were at a family BBQ for Memorial day, I took one bite and couldn't get enough. It's one of the things I look forward to when Summer rolls around in NYC.
So as we approach the season, Mildred decided it would be fitting to share her cherry pinup beach look for the weekend. We're hoping the weather permits our first beach day of the season so we can wear this cute retro swimsuit again.Read More
NYC came alive this weekend with soaring high temperatures and I couldn't resist being outside with all the other folks soaking up the glorious Spring sunshine. I ditched my Saturday chores and ventured to Brooklyn for an afternoon stroll. I stopped to smell the deli flowers along the way (NYC style), ate some pizza, did a bit of Vintage shopping and finsished the day with a little ice cream treat.
The streets were alive with vendors and artists galore and I shared quite a bit on my Instagram story. It was such a lovely day and I was in the mood for some modern-vintage 70's style.

It's almost Valentine's and if you're picking out your outfit, I'd like to challenge you to step outside the red/pink box and try something different. As you know I love me some pink & red but this Valentine's I wanted to mix it up a bit.
