H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

OOTD: Cape Rouge

cape red vesper 1 a

Last week I ditched posting an outfit of the day because I just wasn’t up for it. My #NetflixChill mode was charged on power and I wasn’t having nothing to do with fashion or style. As much as I love spending time on social media and on my blog, sometimes it all gets too much and I need a break. Who feels that way sometimes?

And by taking a break, I mean comfort eating and watching back to back episodes of American Horror Story. Can I just comment on how screwed up Ryan Murphy’s mind is! I was creeped out yet captivated. I finished Asylum, Coven and Freak Show in two weeks. And now I have a new found love for Jessica Lange and a girl crush on Sarah Paulson.

Of course two weeks lazy days and indulgence means I stayed away from the gym. The only form of working out I did was reaching out for the bag of popcorn…

I hopped out of bed and decided the only thing that I needed to snap out of my lazy haze was a bright red outfit and poppin’ purple lipgloss.

Hence this look.

OUTFIT: Vesper red cape tailored blazer, red mini skirt, Aquazzura Matilde metallic gold heels

    Major cape love! I hear ya, I often take mini breaks from social media, sometimes it gets to be a little much.
    I tried watch the AHS the other night…that show gives me the creeps. Its good but messed up at the same time.

    First and foremost, you are WEARING that outfit! As I’ve stated before, this color looks gorgeous on you. #Perfection I love the gold accent as well. Second, breaks are needed from time to time. In my opinion, blogging is like a job (if taken seriously). And just like any other job, you need time away. Trust me, you’re not the only one that feels this way. Glad you enjoyed your lazy days. LOL @ reaching for a bag of popcorn. Have a great day love! xx

    A break is always healthy. It helps you refocus. Oh and that outfit is right on point. Rouge is definitely your colour. xx

    You definitely know how to relax. I love catching up on my shows and eating popcorn. Did you watch the first season of American Horror story? I’ve seen all but didn’t finish Freak Show. Are you watching the new season with Lady Gaga?

    I love the red skirt and cape combo! Looking gorg per usual.
