What to wear to an HBCU Homecoming - 2014

This week start homecoming week for my alma mater, Tennessee State University. Of course, I had to compile some looks for you stylish readers - homecoming events are a BIG DEAL! If you've graduated from an HBCU (Historically Black College/University) you know seeing your friends is just as important as looking fly. Below are some looks to inspire you. Step out the box, add some sass, and be FAB!

#OOTD: College #Homecoming -,Welcome Back, Alumni

THE TREND: Wide-Brimmed Hats and Flirty Blouses
Coming straight off the plane or right from work. Switch that 9-5 look to a 6p-9p Happy Hour ensemble! Sliding on a pair of jeans with your (usually) casual blouse will give you an updated trendy look. Add these 80's shades and wide brimmed hat, and your in the money!


#OOTD: College #Homecoming - Game day!

THE TREND:Urban Hipster Sneaker Style
If you've followed this blog for any amount of time, you know I love a good sneaker! Also you know I'm a fan of dressing for the occasion. I hate - HATE - seeing a girl teetering at a athletic function in HEELS! Are you filming a reality show? NO! So put on a pair of FLY sneakers and be comfortable.



#Homecoming #OOTD: Purple Passion


THE TREND: Midi-skirts and Cut-out Crop-Tops
It's PARTY-TIME! What's a homecoming weekend without attending a party. Whether you're 'Grown & Sexy' or 'Young and YOLO' (corny, I know), you need to rock a look like this to get all the boys talking.


#Homecoming #OOTD: The Morning After
THE TREND: Western Inspired Casual Chic
The weekend has come to close, but not without brunch & mimosas with your favorite people. This is my favorite look becuase the shirt dress can be worn on a variety of body-types. Slip this on with a couple of western inspired items and you are ready to go eat.

#OOTD: College #Homecoming 2014 - Back to Life

THE TREND: Moto Jackets and Cut-out Booties
Since homecoming is a time to reminice, why not add a bit of 90's nostalgia to your weekend look. These chunky cut-out booties, hobo-inspired bag, and all-black look can take you from the tailgate to the game. Plus, you'll still be looking flirty! Go girl!

So, I hope you have fun at your college homecoming! Let these looks inspire you to dress well, have fun, and look cool!

GLIMPSE: Madewell opens at The Mall at Green Hills

So many guests, we started spilling out the entrance!


Last night, Madewell made their debut in Nashville with a PACKED Grand Opening Celebration.

The Mall at Green Hills is the new home for the store that can be easily be described as J. Crew's cool hipster sister. Their tagline is: "Great jeans and all the cool pieces to wear with them—that's Madewell. Just think of us as your best friend and personal stylist, all rolled into one." Who doesn't love a store where the base is the jeans! I know I do! Take a glimpse at the photos below:

#OOTD: Hustle & Fro on the go


Last week when I posted my "Ode to Black Leggings" I got plenty attention for my graphic tee. The 'Hustle & Fro' t-shirt I wore in the shoot was actually purchased about two years ago. I can't even remember where I purchased it. So, I 'hustled' on over to www.teespring.com and created a new t-shirt just for you!

Of course, I had to style it up! I love graphic print tees because wearing one adds a bit of casual cute to your look. You can dress it up or dress it down! If you love this look, click the link for shopping info.

Oh, and order your HUSTLE & FRO tee too!

MY STYLE: My Hustle, My Fro, and the importance of black leggings

CLICK HERE to purchase a HUSTLE & FRO tee

Friday already knows wassup! Some people look at Friday as the beginning of a restful weekend while hustlers, like myself, get ready to seek out opportunity. My hustle, my fro, and BLACK LEGGINGS, get me through my whirlwind weekends. Tell me a girl who doesn't love a black legging and I'll show you a girl who isn't hustling!
