MILDRED IN ARUBA

A few weeks have passed since my Aruba trip and it's now starting to heat up in NYC! When we got back from Aruba, we were welcomed by hot summer-like weather which made me very happy. It felt as though I had brought the good weather back with me, however, a day later NYC reminded me of who she was. It got chilly again!

Yes folks, my space heater, furry bedroom slippers and coat were in full effect again and I was bummed. Now, a couple weeks later, we're starting to feel the heat and all I can do is think about the sun, sand and all the fun Mildred had getting ice-cream.

MINT CHIP & STRAWBERRY DREAMS πŸ“πŸ¦πŸ‘

It's going up to 80 degrees today in NYC and feels like we've skipped Spring and jumped right to Summer! I'm not complaining because I love the warm weather and any excuse to leave my coat where it belongs; in the closet! I plan on soaking up some sunshine today and if you're anywhere warm & sunny, I hope you do too.

It's the perfect day to step out and have a scoop or two or three because what's an 80 degree day without sweet treats?

This look is inspired by my all time favorite dessert and incorporates a few pieces I rocked last Spring.

GROOVY GOOD VIBRATIONS ✌🏾️

Well folks, I'm slowly easing my way out of denial that Summer is over. The first official day of Fall is this Thursday and no amount of crying will change that. So what's a girl to do? The weather is already cooling down and as a last hurrah I decided to do an end of Summer look that works well for the slight chill in the air. Let's face it, Winter is the one I have quarrels with. 

Join Mildred (my #RetroAlterEgo) and I on our last Summer Sixteen stroll in NYC decked out in a playful look inspired by Archie/Betty & Veronica comics with a 70's vibe. 

Continue reading to see more of this playful retro meets modern style along with deets on my cool graphic tank & sunnies. I also made some pretty groovy friends and you don't want to miss that!

CONEY ISLAND DANCE PARTY

Hey hey! Happy weekend!!! Mildred visited Coney Island a few weeks ago and found herself having a little dance party near the art walls. Here's a quick video I snuck of her prancing around to "Heart of Glass" by Blondie! That was not the actual song playing in the background but like Beyonce, #MildredAlwaysOnBeat (sometimes, lol). 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!

MILDRED'S RETRO PLAY-DAY

Hi Darlings! I had an activity-filled day on Sunday starting with a quick SoHo stroll for burgers, fries and rice pudding, a trip to Coney Island for some fun in the sun and snow cones, then a Soca party where I danced the night away (until I got really sleepy at 9:30pm, lol)! What a day, what a day! 

I also posted a handful of vids and pics of my day on Snapchat and Instagram (IG stories too) so be sure to follow along for all the fun! 

It's no secret, I love summer days and more importantly I love to let the girl in me play! I think it's so important to schedule consistent play days in your life, especially as women.  A play day is simply that; a  special time dedicated to having fun in a child-like manner. We can get pretty busy with our grown-up lives and never imagined the independent, stay up late, do whatever you want adult life would entail not so glam activities such as feeding yourself, waking up early to get to work or paying many adult bills. I strongly believe in taking a break from a busy lifestyle to do something you enjoyed as a child. Sometimes I color, ride my bicycle or produce a full-fledged music video in my room to Beyonce's Ego. This "music video" usually involves sequins, heels, a scene rolling across the bed with me singing, "I got a big ego, such a huge #RetroAlterEgo! I walk like this 'cus I can back it up!"  It's my time to relax and be silly. 

Speaking of egos, Mildred (my #RetroAlterEgo) decided to do a little playing herself while at Coney Island! Click through to see her latest threads and how you can recreate this retro play-day look for your next summer outing.
