My Closet: Wearing Heels For The First Time In Over A Year #OOTD

together copy

It’s been over 3 months since I had Baby SBJ. I tried working out and I did for about 2 weeks straight everyday. Then, I had 3 major deadlines all in the same week and working out took a back seat to spending time with the baby and working. Pregnancy has changed my body. I’m curvier than I’ve ever been and it’s been fun dressing my new body. Things I couldn’t wear before, I can now pull off. Take this blue dress, for instance. Before, it was a bit baggy on me. Now? Fits like a glove. Everything just fills me out a bit more. This was my first time wearing heels after having the baby. I chose thigh-high stilettos because I might as well go all out, right? I paired this outfit with simple jewelry and simple hair. It’s still pretty chilly in NYC so I threw on this navy jacket that I love.

All in all, a pretty comfy outfit for a new mom.

So I’m only wearing all black because all my jeans don’t fit, not because I want to appear slimmer. Baby SBJ has left me with some extra hips, butt and boobs. And can I be honest? I LOVE it! You don’t understand. I used to fantasize about gaining weight as a child. As an adult, I learned to accept my body but I’ve always wanted to get some curves. Thanks, baby SBJ!! Continue reading

Bene Caribe-Fabulousness from Trinidad

Bene CaribeI love Facebook. One of my friends posted a link to Bene Caribe on the Book and tagged me. I naturally fell in love. Bene Caribe is a new jewelry and clothing line that hails from my homeland of Trinidad. I love their bright colors and clean silhouettes. They also have an Etsy shop, which is awesome. I snagged the Bene Caribe Wrapped Chain/Belt in Blue Flame. It was only $40. It’s handmade in Trinidad and each one is made to order. I love getting opportunities to support local talent. Trinidad is such a culturally rich country and it’s high time the world found out. I’m super nervous about the shipping from Trinidad but fingers crossed all goes well. I’ll keep you posted!
