In today's featured look I felt like a melanin queen (hence the title) lol. This outfit reminded me of African Royalty in the Nubian era. My choker and arm cuff felt reminiscent of the style of jewelry they wore throughout this time period. Nevertheless, the jewelry created in that age were most commonly made of copper or gold and generally had a special meaning behind it. I can honestly say that I'm usually inspired by this time period (which you will continue to see later on lol) and I would've been honored to even exprience what it would be like to live in that day in age.

Here are my outfit details:

Top: F21
Skort: Zara
Shoes: F21
Necklace: F21
Arm Cuff: H&m

If the melanin on fleek can I get a Amen!? I'd have to thank my summer job for working in the sun all day for my extra melanin goodness. I just loved the sporty vibe this dress gave me and the versatility of it. If you're not a heel person (I'm not always one either) just opt for some cute sneakers. I'm not a sneaker person but sandals don't seem to work for this dress.

Great for brunch or any casual outing. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

  Today's blog features Ankara Print that's inspired by my people. I'm part Nigerian and I love wearing African inspired prints whenever I can. Suprisingly enough I did not buy this skirt in Nigeria, and I couldn't beleive I found this in American Apparel. Initially I thought it would be a dupe but the material is authentic and the fit is great. If you're in NYC you should definitely check out the AA soho factory oulet although I cannot guarantee that you will find this particular skirt because their stock arrives periodically and you would have to catch them on a good day. Sorry :/ but the upside is you never know what you may find ;-)

Now here are my outfits details:
