Let's talk about an amazing weekend—extended weekend if I must add. I spent the last couple of days in D.C. with my big sis (from Hampton) and it was amazing. We handled business and had our fun, too. I got amazing news Friday afternoon that I'll be working as a press escort next weekend at BET Black Girls Rock so I was in full celebratory mood from Friday until yesterday. A celebratory mood needs a slay to match, right? I attended brunch in this cute reworked shirt, a summer staple.
As I told you guys in my last post, reworked shirts are my current obsession. Since there is a lot of detailing with the shirt denim shorts were the best option to pair with it. Everyone has been asking about this shirt. I got it from Forever 21 and the price was a steal! These shorts are also from Forever 21, but they're sold out. Here are some similar ones. These were such simple pieces, but I had fun dressing them up.
These yellow shoes (which are my new faves) are probably the most comfortable sandal I own right now. They're Steve Madden and the sexy, strappy detailing is so fierce. This handheld Aldo bag had the most subtle hint of yellow in the attached scarf and went perfect with this look. The bag is sold out online, but it is still being sold in stores. It's the perfect summer bag that can be carried into fall.
It rained on and off all day, but this was my brunch look for the weekend. I just got back to New York and it feels like fall. Yes, fall is my favorite season. But, no baby what are you doing?! This is my last week to myself before I start working, and as much as I would love to throw on a nice fall look I want the hot, warm summer weather so I can do summer things.
In honor of the in-between weather here in NYC and my love of reworked shirts, below you'll find my top favorite detailed blouses that you can rock in the summer and fall.
