Tribal Chic

“We can not allow our progress to clout the fact that our work is not complete.” –Barack Obama


I must remind myself constantly that after I accomplish one goal I can not forget that my work is not done. Being “content” is not in my vocabulary. I’ve recently accomplished a few things that were important to me, but I can not and will not stop there. President Obama mentioned the above quote at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. and it spoke directly to me.

In the mother land we were Kings and Queens, and the “bigger” you were was a representation of your wealth. So back then, I would have been “Very Rich.” (in my Nene Leakes voice) Today’s look is African inspired starting with my mustard yellow top which is a repeat from my “FALL in love” post. I encourage you to shop your own closet whenever you feel like wearing something new. Mix and match to create a whole new look.  My Aztec tribal print skirt has a mixture or coral, blues, and browns, so I thought the mustard top paired with the pattern in the skirt nicely. I decided to wear a blue tank underneath to bring out the blue tones in the skirt, and not to mention because its too cold for short sleeves.

These platform booties feature a caged sandal like design which also originated in Africa. I love the supper chunky heel. I accessorized with a wine colored top handle bag which is one of my favorite “Black Friday” finds. Its the perfect combination of business and pleasure because you can dress it up or down. I also love that it has an optional shoulder strap for style versatility. This bag adds the “chic to my tribal.”

Until next time…. Stay Stylish!
