In case you haven’t noticed, I’m totally into jumpers. Like they will never get old to me. When I saw this number I almost ran out of the store with it. Don’t worry, I paid for it first.

This weekend was great. I got to catch up with old friends and connect with new ones alike. We had a conversation about the things we want – in life and in relationships – and how we ask for the things we want instead of just going out and getting them. A friend expressed what she wanted out of a relationship – a title – and that she planned on asking for it this week. I suggested she TELL him – not ask him for – what she wanted because so many times when we ask for something, things become very gray. Because people don’t answer you honestly all the time for the sake of sparing your feelings. If you’re direct, unapologetic and CLEAR, you tend to get a better response. When you keep it black & white, you usually get it right.

That rhymed. Mission accomplished.

  4. I thought this was a top and pants instead of a jumper. I was about to say “Let me borrow that top.” Cute!

    Love the Alaia version of that top, every time I see a version of it my soul cries because I KNOW in my heart I’mma have to cop a version of it. LOL but I haven’t ACCEPTED it yet. Love this look especially the length and flow of these pants and of course the fact that they’re sheer. You’re working the hell out of them braids. Makes me want braids again but I don’t know that I could endure the time. Woo.

  8. LOVING your hair lately. You look fabulous.

  9. One word…LOVE!
