The Mel Maxi

Hi loves! I
can’t believe our baby boy is now a “school boy”. His first day of
school went well than expected. He proved us wrong by not crying when we
dropped him off. He however had a look of “why are you leaving me” on his face
as we exited the classroom.

On the other
hand, it was very tough on me and I practically watched the clock and counted
until it was pick up time. I am hoping for a full adjustment in a week or so. I
thank you all for the encouragement onInstagramandtwitterwith regards to Nolan’s first day of

I am wearing
a beautiful African print skirt in this post. The color structure and pattern is
simply gorgeous. The pop of blue and pink on the skirt caught my attention and
the intricate pattern wowed me…definitely a fun piece to wear. I paired
with awhite crop top and completed the look with
a Soko African grafted necklace. 

What I Am Wearing:

Chen Burkett NY Skirt (c/o here) // Crop top (here) // Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps (here, budget friendly here) // Ray ban sunglasses (here) // MAC Ruby Woo (here) // Necklace (c/o ShopSoko, love this here)

Thank you for stopping by…have a great day!
