In Need of a Little Sunshine

best yellow

Hey guys………With the current state of the union uploading a blog post right now just seemed a bit trivial. As the Program Director for New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, police and community relationships has been one of the issues my department works on rigorously. Quite honestly I am emotionally exhausted and in need of some self-care.

This weekend I decided to hang out with family. My self-care required being around the people I love, spending quality time. I put out a S.O.S for a fab picnic filled with fashion, food and fun and that’s exactly what I received. We are all in need of a little sunshine right now. This Lane Bryant number worked its magic and did just that. I absolutely love the easy silhouette and vibrant color.

I am all about a good DIY project. I’ve always wanted an intense fringe shoe, similar to the Wild Things however being a size 11 our options are slim. When I found this DIY youtube video (Here) with step by step instructions on how to create my dream shoe I knew I had to give it a try. So glad I did. These” Wild Things” inspired heels gave this amazing dress exactly want it needed, a little more chic.



Thanks for reading guys and remember self-care is the best care.
