SUNDAY BRUNCH @ AGAVE

Brunch Season is BACK!!!!! NYC has been seeing all four seasons all jammed packed in one month. A bit outrageous if you as me but I didn’t let that stop me from getting my brunch on. This weekend I went out to Agave on Charles St. for brunch with two of my girlfriends. Agave is a beautiful intimate spot with a wide selection of entrees. Being my picky old self,  I ordered the Skirt steak & eggs. My normal choice of alcoholic beverage are normally mimosa but the taste was a bit off so I opted for the margaritas. The food was tasty & cooked perfectly, I just need to step out of my element & try something I wouldn’t normally order. Anyone else is a picky eater?

ZARA TRACK PANTS OOTD

Hey, Y’all!!!! Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was full of laughs. joy & excitement. Unfortunately, I worked all weekend but I did get to enjoy some shimmers of sunshine. It’s still very chilly in New York but I’ll take a cool breeze over snowflakes any day. I can’t wait to experience some real Spring weather.

I wanted to highlight these beloved track pants that I purchased from Zara, which I grabbed on sale for $30 bucks. I do love a good sale, especially from Zara. This streetwear trend has definitely taken over & now we are seeing more trousers with the stripe on the side seam.

I love a good pant, I get so tired of stuffing my body into jeans lol, so a looser pant is a great switch up. Track pants are even acceptable in some workplaces, and I’m all for this evolution.

Check out my mini photoshoot at Bryant Park.

Can we say spring has semi begun in New York City? Aside from the very random snow storm on Monday. I’ve been a bit indecisive or whether to purchase white booties or white mules. Even though spring is here it’s totally acceptable to wear a fashionable bootie on a 65-degree day. At least I think so. Here are a few affordable to semi-affordable white booties & mules. Which would you buy?

“UGLY” SNEAKER TREND

Are we here for this “ugly” sneaker trend? I’m a little intrigued with the design of a few of them. But what’s the gag with these sneakers? Why are we obsessed with this retro/futuristic silhouette? From Kanye West to Versace every designer is on board with this “ugly” trend.

I have to be honest, when I first seen how big this trend was, I didn’t like any of the sneakers. The Balenciaga sneakers started to grow on me the more they over flooded my news feeds and how I seen different influencers styling them. Now those and the Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers are my favorite. I think it’s the chunky silhouette of these sneakers that cultivated my attention. Anyway, You won’t see me running to the stores to cop these bad boys though.

The real question is would we rock these if they were Scekhers or FUBU ? I guess it doesn’t really matter since their not. Are we invested in these because the brand or the actual design?

Below are a few celebs pictured running around in their designer sneakers. You can also find links to retailers with knock off Balenciagas for sell.

What are y’all thoughts?

EASTER SUNDAY WAS IRONICALLY ON APRIL FOOLS DAY

Happy April Loves! Sunday, April 1st was Resurrection Sunday! He has risen!! I celebrated my Easter Sunday with a 10am church service at Renaissance Church in Harlem. After church, I went to brunch at Chocolat with one of my best friends Asia.

It was a beautiful Easter Sunday, the sun was out & there was a lite breeze in the air. April will mark a big time in my life. Preparation for a BIG JUMP. I am jumping into my passionate, jumping into my goals, jumping into faith. COMPLETELY. I leave all doubt in March & I will not be turning back. I will be devoting more of my time on my blog, and curating much more content!

I didn’t have an Easter Sunday outfit planned out like I normally do. I was able to go into my wardrobe & pull out my cherished Polo Ralph Lauren pants & lilac button up. With my (adds a bit of sophistication to any fit), Boohoo wrap coat & BCBG generation nude heels.
