Florals in the spring.

I'm pretty sure by now everyone knows I love florals. Any shape and color I love it. I recently brought this skirt at forever 21 and  I love it! I styled it with a black crop and gold sandals. I cant wait to style it with leggings and a chunky knit burgundy sweater next Fall. Summer hasn't even started in New York and I'm already thinking about Fall. Moral of the story is, this skirt is so easy to style in all season. Its such a great buy. And at such a steal only $12.80 at forever 21.
      If crop tops aren't your thing swap it for a lace shirt and it will still have that feminine feel.

New York Aids walk 2014

Today Sunday,May 18th 2014 I participated in the Aids walk. The morning was chilli and I was the only fool in shorts and a fringe shirt. Once we started walking it warmed up and everything was fine. It was such a pretty day in central park all the pretty flowers were in full bloom and the allergies were running chaos. It sounded like a chorus of sneezes at one point. When the real walking began we all looked like zombies bunched together trying to keep moving and not bump into one another.
It was all fun and games until my feet started hurting, then I got hungry, and lets not forget when I had to use the rest room. I felt like an absolute toddler. All I needed was to start whining. Which I did on the inside, for fear that I would be judge as the  unfit one of the group. When the first check point approached it was a good feeling to know that I had just walked 1 mile, which actually felt like 5. When I was done I didn't feel tired anymore I was pumping with adrenaline and wanted to just fly away like a kite. That was all short lived until I got on the train on my way home and sat down. Big mistake. My legs felt like jelly and my feet felt like cinder blocks. It felt like that was the  longest train ride of my life. Living in New York that's a statement said often. It was all a good experience and for a very good casue.

If you live san Francisco or los Angeles they'll be an aids walk in your area pretty soon check out the site linked below for more info.

New to the Crop tops Trend

I brought my first crop top. I was scared of what I would look like. I didn't want to draw attention to myself by walking around with just a little tummy out. Honestly I don't know what I was worried about! I've come such a long away with my body positivity journey that I refused to go 10 steps backwards instead of one step ahead. Of course I'm still getting used to it and I personally don't like the crop top with any of my shorts, but with a skirt I felt pretty and dare I say even a little naughty! I started out with a simple black one but I'm eyeing some of my old t-shirts to cut up and make into crop tops.

Always look in the back of your Closet.

This week I  discovered an outfit combo that I really liked. I was trying to figure out another way to avoid constantly wearing a cardigan. So I threw on a denim shirt and was pleasantly surprised at how it came together. This look can work with any shirt, I styled  it to be more casual. You can tuck in a chiffon shirt and leather jacket and its a totally different look.  I wore my sequin Vans with the first look, white Converses would also look nice . Personally I think any shoe would look cute with this look. It depends on weather you want casual, dressed up, or work appropriate.
