Comfy every day outfit that every girl needs.

Every girl has their favorite comfy pair of yoga pants. Or sweats. Something that they don’t have to calculate before putting on. Something to run errands in and still look chic. Something that is comfy yet fashionable and flattering. Something comfy to wear to go to a massage or to throw on with some black strappy heels to go out at night. This is why I love this outfit.

These lux comfy joggers are made of the softest material and they feel like something you would want to go to bed in. They also have these cute mesh lines on the thigh that are see through that show a little bit of skin.

The tank is made of the same soft material and it also has that sexy mesh see through in the back. You can wear a half bra or a sports bra underneath like I’m wearing here.

I tend to like solid color shoes and I like to wear a pop of color on my feet when I’m wearing all black. I fell in love with these pink / blush suede adidas. Perfect to wear with this outfit. Sometimes I still wear my white and green stan smiths with this.

Now I can put on my sunnies and I’m ready to go.

This is really a year round type of outfit [well it depends where you live but I live in Sunny SoCal ūüôā ] When it’s a little more chilly you can throw on the matching sweatshirt which is also see through at the top baring your d√©colletage and part of your arms.

Stay comfy my friends.

This fashionista’s viewpoint on being of mixed race

When I saw this shirt listed on Rue La La, I immediately knew I had to purchase it. I am so sick of seeing in the news race this, race that, the white person did this, the black person did that, Muslims are responsible for this, Jews are responsible for that. When is this world going to realize that we are all the same? We are all the same race. One race; Human.¬†I grew up in the South during grade school and went to¬†a predominately white¬†school in the country. There were only¬†about ten¬†African American kids total.¬†I got to see first hand what hate looked like. I was not accepted by some whites and by some (outside of my school)¬†I was told I wasn’t “black enough” to be black. Kids were mean to me and called me names.¬†It was hard to understand when I was young but it only shaped who I am and¬†now I look back and only see one thing. Ignorance…. Small minds. I know now that the reason kids treated¬†people of¬†color differently and kids¬†who don’t look like¬†them differently¬†is because that is¬†what they were taught.¬†The responsibility lies on their parents.

My boyfriend is Puerto Rican and we are an interracial couple so I thought it would be nice to get both of us one of these shirts. Especially since we are an interracial couple. We get so many people looking and asking about it, where we got it and what a great statement it is (yes, sometimes we wear it together LOL). The shirt was made after the unfortunate shootings at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, South Carolina earlier this year. I wish it was still available for purchase so that many of you had the chance to get one. I may be recreating it and will let you know when I do. I love everything this shirt stands for. I also love that all proceeds from the sale of this shirt went towards non-profit organizations that help to bridge racial divides. See the full article here.

I appreciate being of mixed race. I appreciate my African American ancestry in the deep South, the countryside, the Baptist churches and down home cooking. I appreciate my French side, Moroccan roots, Hebrew school, French bread and camembert. ūüėČ I also love that I also have a little bit of Native American, Spanish and Italian¬†in me.¬†I love all that I have learned from both sides and that I am part of both cultures. It really is eye opening and probably sparked my interest of other races, cultures and customs. I love traveling and seeing how people live, what they eat, their daily pressures and viewpoints¬†and try¬†to live a day¬†in the life of them. What they find good, what they value, what pleases them. People should try to be more open minded about other people different from them and learn more about them.

Let’s not spread hate and pass it down¬†generation to generation; instead let’s¬†only spread and¬†teach¬†love. Lets work together and uplift and support one another no matter what we look like, what religion we are, how we were raised or where we come from.

I am in love with these new Converse All Star Chuck II sneaks. They are the most comfortable pair I own with the most amazing support (with the new Lunarlon footbed inside for ultimate support). White sneaks are so popular right now and you can wear them with skinny jeans, shorts, dresses, skirts, anything..

These ripped jeans are pretty comfy too and stylish. They are flattering and come in white too.
