Don’t get scared I don’t have an actual fever, lol. Do you know tropical prints are the new florals for Spring 2018? These prints hit the runway with Fenty Puma, Michael Kors, Baja East and Gucci and are here to stay. I have seen different prints from the banana leaves to hibiscus flowers and I knew I was going to catch the bug soon.
I recently just found the brand Tanya Taylor and I have been mesmerized with her collections. Did you know that each print begins with a hand painting done by the team in the New York Studio? I love art and yes I can’t paint or draw to save my life but i’m one who knows how to appreciate beautiful prints. The Tanya Taylor collection has a feminine yet modern flair and the use of colors is just breathtaking.The collection has been worn by Celebrities such as Michelle Obama, Sophia Trudeau, Beyonce, Tracee Ellis Ross and so many more beautiful ladies. The Canadian designer has won my heart with her Spring 2018 Ready to wear collection and for a woman of colour like me, the dresses and I – best match made in heaven.
The previous week was so busy that I didn’t have the time to upload this post earlier.
Spring weather in Calgary is unpredictable, one minute you are in sunshine and the next minute it’s cold and that’s why the perfect transitional piece for spring is a Tweed jacket. I personally believe a tweed jacket is a wardrobe staple and elevates an outfit to the level of elegance and sophistication. The great thing about tweed is that you can style it with a tee and a pair of skinny jeans. If you are adventurous, you can do a tweed ensemble (blazer + skirt). This season, tweed suit sets are in trend and seen with brands like Lafayette New York and Theory. I’ve had this jacket for couple of years and was excited to style with my mom jeans.

It was a 3 day weekend and it was amazing for me. I had an event on Saturday and watched Black Panther finally on Sunday and my Monday was just chilled. Have you watched Black Panther? I loved it and loved the representation of different African cultures. I didn’t dress up though, I just wore an all black dress with black over the knee boots. I highly recommend watching this movie if you haven’t seen it.
It’s another cold day in Calgary, currently -17 degrees celsius and it means another indoor shoot for me. There are so many spots to take pictures in Calgary and utilizing the mall has just been fantastic. Have you been to Sporting Life at South Centre mall? The interior decor is totally amazing and when I was thinking of a nice spot for my shoot, it was my go-to location.
