No, this is not Fab Fro Friday, I spotted Solange's sweet love letter to New Orleans on her Instagram page. In the post, she wrote:
#latergram Boyfriend took this of me the other night when we got home from dancing... I was happy. I am happy here. Thank you nola for giving me so many wonderful, rich, and endless days of joy. For giving my son one of the best summer experiences. For the night I danced until 8 am in a place filled with nothing but love. I fall in love with you more and more every day. You are magic. I am grateful. #nola
As a NOLA newbie myself, I couldn't agree with her more! New Orleans IS "magic" In related news, somebody spotted her sister and brother-in-law leaving Gene's Poboy on Elysian Fields and St. Claude while they were here in the city for their On The Run Tour #neworleans

One of the most fashionable, on trend styles to emerge recently are full skirts paired with crop tops. I honestly don't ever get tired of seeing this look. I've seen full skirts paired with heels, boots, flats even sneakers! The look always works. Especially if your thighs happen to rub on occasion like mine do (booooo -me) because in a full skirt, no one can tell. BOOM. Winning.

Seersucker is a classic Southern tradition. It's Southern Culture. And even though I was born and raised and still reside in the South, I don't really consider myself as all that "Southern" I just don't, never have. I even took one of those online quizzes recently that pretty much confirmed that (the quiz said I was 57% Southern) so see? There you go. I just thought the pants were cute and perfect for summer. Anyhoo, I found these pants one day out thrifting with one of my nephews, not even looking for anything of the sort, but at FOUR BUCKS that just happened to be in MY SIZE, you know what? Why not. So I get them home, try them on and they fit like a glove, there was only one problem. Seersucker fabric can be pretty thin and the white pockets were shining through these pants like a spotlight, so I had to remove them, which was kinda sad for me because I luvs the pockets :( But after I (reluctantly) did that, it was all good in the seersucker pants neighborhood! lol, more pics below...

White eyelet/lace dresses are perfect for summer. They're brisk, breezy and cool and exactly what you want when the weather is
trying to broil you to a crisp way too HOT. I love the effortless chic of white and eyelet/lace together. Such a cute look for so many occasions, yes?

I recently purchased a cute pair of strappy sandal heels (on sale!) and they fit for the most part, (they were a little too snug for my liking around the toe area). So at first, I looked into shoe repair shops to see if they could extend the toe strap a bit, but then I quickly came to my senses based on how much I paid for the shoes (little to nothing). So I started looking up DIY shoe hacks when I found the article above. Anybody already hip to this? I know I'm probably late, but this was the first time I ever even heard of this DIY shoe hack. Now full disclosure, I haven't tried this out yet, so I don't know if it'll even work on my synthetic, man-made material sandals, but I'll definitely update this post and let you know if this worked for me.

I knew as soon as I spotted Solange Knowles in another brightly colored suit on her Instagram, I knew that I would be sketching her in it. Because how could you not be inspired by her bold style?
