How I Wore My TOMS Platform Wedge Sandals

I Wore That-7182016

I wore my TOMS platform wedges with boyfriend jeans and a suede like top.

So I’m going to give this whole photographing my outfits a try. I’m not comfortable in front of a camera. When I smile, I have squinty eyes. But for several reasons, I decided to give it a go.

First, it’s a record of change. In 2014, I found out that I was dangerously close to being a diabetic and that I had a thyroid condition. If I didn’t want to spend my life on meds, I needed to lose weight fast. So I did. At my lowest weight I was 157 but last January I was up ten pounds and no matter what I couldn’t shake it. This year, I turned 41 and menopause came on way too early and full force and my metabolism seems slower than molasses. So, I’m working really hard to loose the 10 pounds and then 10 more by next spring. You know sometimes you just can’t see yourself when you look in the mirror. I can’t see the weight loss. So for me getting in front of the camera will help me track my progress.

And second, getting in front of the camera will help me remember certain outfits. By the time Friday rolls around, I’ve forgotten what I wore on Monday. And of course, I hope to inspire you all.

The Daily Suga’|Métissage of Global Fashion

Currently I’m obsessed with the designs of Stella Jean.

While checking out Instagram, I came across a FABULOUS Barbie of the Italian-Haitian fashion designer Stella Jean. How is it that I didn’t know about her? I’m slipping ya’ll and as a former fashion design student that’s not good. Her clothes are apparently a favorite of stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna. Who knew? You already know that I LOVE African textiles.

Her multicultural view of fashion is a mélange of  West Africa fabrics which interact with fabrics from Italy, France and Britain all with sprinkling of street edge.  Her designs are FABULOUS but don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!

The Daily Suga’|The Romper-My Favorite Summer Fashion Go To

Last year summer vacation, I lived in my rompers. They were perfect for the Florida heat and the styles ranged from super casual to dressy. With great anticipation, I can’t wait to pull them out this year for our Cali trip.

I’m feeling pretty excited for the warmer weather, the salty breeze of the Pacific and of course, the lighter, brighter side of  fashion.

Look at all these great versions of my summer go to!
