Here's what I wore to celebrate my born-day in Bedstuy, Brooklyn last week:
This romper didn't look like much on the rack. In fact, I would have skipped it if I wasn't romper-obsessed. I got it less than two weeks ago at H&M. Yup, good ole H&M. I ended up sizing way down for a more fitted fit. I had to make a second trip to the fitting room because sizes one and two that I took in, were both too big. Fit is everything.
The mix of African bracelets that I've truly been wearing all summer with everything are from a random African shop in Bedstuy and the white Maasai bracelet is from Calabar on Franklin Avenue.
And the clutch is actually a "tablet clutch" from Coach a few seasons ago.
I didn't intend to do a blog post, hence no detail shots or close-ups, but I'm learning to just go with it-- it's all good!
For my makeup, I got some inspiration from one of my style icons, Lupita N'yongo, and kept it very neutral-- gold highlighter around my eyes; eyeliner and mascara; a bit of MAC's Fever blush; and my new favorite nude lipstick called Touch, also by MAC.
Some kinda-candids from the night of celebrating, including two additional rompers and some leather shorts. My friends stay inspiring me!
Orange + red rompers.
Orangey red + blue romper.
Yup, welcoming 30 was a lot of fun. I'm truly excited about this new decade of living, learning and loving.
More to come (and on IG).
