I wore this victorian inspired dashiki in NewYork during NYFW 2016 and it made me feel like a ball of fire:untouchable and hot. The rich variations of reds, oranges and yellows give that blaze effect. It was as though I left a trail of flames in my every step. When you’re wearing the right clothing, it should make you feel invincible. I can’t tell you how many strangers loved this top and stopped me to ask about it. Every now and then, you must make a statement and on this day, I did it in this fabulously ruffled top. Enjoy!
Greetings from Kiev, Ukraine! This outfit of the day is from my first day in Eastern Europe. We had a 20+ hour layover in Kiev, Ukraine so instead of sleeping on the airport floor (which was really tempting, NOT!!!) we slept one night in one of the best hostels in town. It was such a treat after an almost 9 hour flight from New York. In that short time we were able to shower, sleep in a comfortable bed and get some yummy, eats and drinks. We walked around the street markets to take in some sights while we could. Before we knew it, it was time to hit the airport again for our final destination.
Alright, let’s talk about the details for this first outfit of the day Europe edition. This look was inspired by all of the European women after my own heart who are all about light minimalist looks in the summer.
For this look I paired a sleeveless light blue button down top with white deconstructed denim. My sandals have a simple, single wide straps across the toes and around the ankle. This helps keep everything looking clean. My pop of color happens to be my day bag for exploring. It’s a wine colored satchel with a leather strap and adds just enough interest to the look with out loosing the minimalist qualities. It’s hard to keep lights clean when you’re traveling but I managed.
