Happy Friday my loves! It has seriously been a hectic week but definitely a productive one. I just couldn't get to everything that I wanted to post which included a Memorial Day weekend look. I am hoping to get that up for Memorial Day at least. But I am wrapping up this week with a fun and chic little number that's perfect for going out on a Friday night :)
Black will always be a go to color for me, but it's fun to throw in a little pop of color especially during the spring and summer months. It's a great way to brighten up your look a little bit and make it more fun and interesting. This time I decided to go with this beautiful hot pink shoulder bag from F&W Style's Spring Collection. It's crafted with rich leather and Aso Oke fabric (hand loomed cloth woven in Africa.) I especially love the gold hardware because it makes the bag stand out even more. It's also the perfect size bag for going out. It's such a great color and statement piece. Make sure to check out the rest of their collection!
I added my heart belt to bring the dress together a little more. I haven't worn it in awhile so I figured that this would be a good time to bring it back out. I wore this dress once before last year but with a red lip and red heels so this is another example of how to style it up! I never used to wear the same dress twice, but I've learned that there's definitely ways to make it look different.
On another note:
Memorial Day weekend has been rough for me the past 3 years. It's when my father was diagnosed with cancer. And even though a lot of time has passed by it still feels like it was yesterday. It's hard to shake off and it's hard to ignore. But it's always a great reminder to me of what and who are important in my life. I'm a strong person and despite my struggles, I am doing well.
I still don't know yet what I will be doing this weekend, but as I mentioned in the beginning of this post I will still try to do a Memorial Day look. Whatever your plans are I hope that you all enjoy the weekend!
