Alligator Pond Beach, JAMAICA


Island Life! Island Girl!

My grandmother recently passed away so I went back home to Jamaica to be with my family and lay her to rest. She suffered a massive stroke in January 2012 and fought for over a year until silently, with tender loving compassion, God ended her fight and took her away from this world peacefully. It was devastating, but being at home in the place where I find the most peace, I managed to have a great time just relishing in everything that my neighborhood had to offer ... beach, food, and a great family community.

To see more from Jamaica, check me out on instagram.

What I Wore?

CASUAL DAYZ: Exploring the New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show


Spring has sprung and so has the orchids. The orchid show at the NYC Botanical Garden is a beautiful adventure. It's perfect for viewing, learning, and for a casual day of exploring. I love the gardens so much, I can't wait until the outdoor garden really comes to life to go back for another casual day exploration with my daughter.

MIXING CLASSICS W/TRENDS: Pink Coat + H&M Ripped Jeans

 Photographed by CAPTUREDInstyle

This coat is an oldie but a goodie. It's one of my all time favorites. I bought it several years ago at Daffy's (She's no longer around ... it was bankruptcy that did her in ... such a great store ... sad ... bless her soul as she RIP ... truly missed) many sizes too big. It was beautiful so I wore it anyway. Then I didn't wear it for a couple of years, but this winter I decided to get it tailored to fit my true size and it's like it's brand new. The moral of the story is sometimes you will find a lovely piece and it's not your exact size, but you can always bring it to a local tailor and have them tailor it to fit you perfectly and fall in love with it in a whole new way.

What I Wore?

Tracey Reese Coat | H&M Ripped Jeans & Clutch & Sunnies | Basic Mint Green (doesn't look so green in these pics, but that's lighting for ya) Sweater | Zara Pointed Toe Pumps | Vintage Clip-On Earrings & Necklace |

CASUAL w/A FLAIR: Proenza Schouler for Target Sweatshirt + Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

 Photographed by CAPTURED Instyle

Remember when the Neiman Marcus for Target collection hit both Neiman Marcus and target over the holidays? The 50 holiday piece collection had some really cool pieces. 24 CFDA designers created a blockbuster range of 50 holiday products that allowed the designers to create products outside of their usual. Consisting of clothing, accessories, home goods, gadgets, and lots more (seriously -- the stock ranged from flasks to skateboards to children's clothes to wrapping paper). It was pretty darn awesome.

I mean, I was swooning over practically everything, but on the verge of losing my 9-5, I refrained from buying until after the season when everything they had, I repeat everything, went on sale at 75% off. It was then, I caved because I couldn't resist this Proenza Schouler sweatshirt for $9.99 + free shipping. It'll be with me for a long time because it's the perfect casual fit that really, at such a steal, I should have bought two instead of one.

I hope you are off to a fabulous 2013!  I've been busy focusing on finding a new job and revamping the blog to bring better content and more offering. Stay tuned...
