I guess all my complaining about cold winter weather did not fall on deaf ears, because it was hot as blazes this past weekend. So hot that if I just thought about going outside I'd break out in a sweat. But I didn't let the heat miser stop me from getting in a little pool time. My sister invited us over to her fabulous downtown abode and we hit up the rooftop pool for a little chill time. And yes, I made a conscious decision to match the pool water with my getup. #Dork

What did you all do over the weekend?

I'M STILL HERE . . . PROMISE!

Hello, gang! Yes, I know I've been MIA for the past few weeks but I promise I had good reason. I just returned from vacation with the hubs. We spent five days in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico and it was exactly what we needed to regain our sanity! Posting to the blog will resume next week with the standard Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule.

In the meantime, if you're looking for me, catch me on Instagram!

Listen. I'm not even prepared to tell y'all how happy I am that the sun has been out a consistent 3 days here in Atlanta. So to celebrate this rarity, I threw on my new colorblock maxi that I picked up at the Step Into Style boutique opening a few weeks back (click HERE to read all about the fab opening). I dressed it up with sky-high pumps and a few gold baubles, but I'm considering a more scaled back version of this look with sandals and sans bling. The sunny yellow color definitely matches my current mood...and this impeccable weather.

Let's see how long it lasts.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY | EARLY 90s R&B

90s R&B

Credits via 

 I've been listening to a lot of old school R&B girl groups. I'm talking the likes of Jade, Xscape, En Vouge and SWV. There's something about the sound of hip hop beats mixed with delicate vocals that always brings back fond memories of my adolescence. And the fashion from early 90s girls groups was just was amazing! Their style reflected what my older sister and her friends were wearing, as well as girls all across the country, sporting the best in mall fashions from Contempo Casuals, Express, The Body Shop, Units and more. And since everything comes full circle, I finally get a chance to indulge a bit. I was in middle school when most of these groups were out, so there was no way in you-know-where that my mom was allowing me to wear a midruff-baring, daisy duke getup).

But today is a different story.
