I decided to send summer off with the perfect festival look. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably already seen this outfit. I wore it to Brass Fess to see THE Machel Montano at Brooklyn Museum during Labor Day Weekend. For those of you who may not know, Machel Montano is a world famous soca artist. He's also arguably one of the greatest performers to ever live. Hailing from Trinidad and Tobago Machel has hits for each year I've been alive...26 years! His music is a staple in my childhood and it continues to be a great part of my life. Thank you Machel for a lifetime of great music.
Let's talk about my BODAY for a little bit. Honestly, my body has been through a lot over the last two years. A year ago, I was probably the smallest I'd been in a long time. I wish I could say it was because of healthy eating and exercise, but it wasn't. I was STRESSED and it showed. Happy to say that phase has passed and I'm on to a bit more of a chunky phase. The truth is I'm in a good place and I don't mind that I've gained a few pounds. I've decided to love my body at any size. Some days I'll want to cover up, but I also know that it's quite fine to show a little skin if I want to.
These shorts, cropped top, fringed kimono, and sandal boots are just flawless together. I think everything is from Forever21 including the beaded bag. I love that bag, I bought it from their website years ago. It just adds instant glam to any outfit.
Cheers to your next summer and more festivals.
Stylishly yours, Nia
