Polka Dotted

It doesn’t get any better than fun in polka dots. My sister had this cute polka dot denim shirt just sitting in her closet, so I decided to take it for a spin (shh). It was the perfect match for my F21 polka dot skirt. I was a little torn on what shoes to wear, so I went with both. I absolutely love the F21 white flats because they give ease and comfort with incredible chicness. The H&M sandals are what I like to call “good and faithful.” I’ve had them for years now and I still love them and I don’t plan on giving them up any time soon. I incorporated my calabash bag I bought on my trip to Grenada.

I’m often asked “how you put your outfit together, I never would have thought of that?” There are three things I keep in mind when putting a look together:

1. How can I do this differently? I don’t want to look like everyone else. I want to give people a glimpse of who I really am without saying a word. Why fit in when you were meant to stand out!?

2. Be NOT afraid! I’m not afraid of looking like a complete idiot because I chose to wear pieces I love together. If someone doesn’t like it, it’s not for them. Never be afraid to be who you really are, and to embrace the things you truly love. Count it all as a gift.

3. It starts on the inside. This might sound cliché but it’s so true. Being confident and loving yourself shines through no matter what you’re wearing. Another comment I hear often is “only you can pull that off.” No, maybe only I have the confidence and love of self to try something different and still hold my head high. I know it’s easier said than done, but it’s worth a try.

Stylishly Yours, Nia
