TEA Tunic

Hey Loves

A great opportunity has come up that I hope I will be able to share with you soon. I know I've been absent a whole lot, but the business of blogging really requires dedication- and I just haven't had the time- or the help- that I've had in the past.

I considered letting the blog go, but as fate would have it, this blog has a wider audience than even I had originally anticipated. I'm gonna try to rise to the challenge again- this time I beg your indulgence. For those of you who tell your friends about Island Style, or recommend my page to other bloggers, or even meet me and say, hey, I saw you on Black Girls Killing It (LOL) - thank you so much!!!! We sometimes underestimate how far our work can reach, and the good we can do if we focus on the positive.

Much love, blog-fam.

Black Armani Exchange Dress

The Little Black Dress- a wardrobe staple.
A few of them survived my last closet purge, but this one is by far the leader- it is silk fitted and flared. Perfect for dinner- and speaking of which:
This is what I wore:
Dress: Armani Exchange
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Pleated Maxi

Its the weekend!
My plans are to get some rest and visit my mentor. I'm done reading Lean In and I'm excited to sit with her and discuss my plans for the year. The first quarter has been such a challenge- and it sometimes becomes very hard to stay motivated. What I've learned is that success is a jungle gym, not a ladder- so I'm finally figuring out how to swing on these monkey-bars. 
Today I'm wearing a multicolored maxi dress from Asos. It has these tiny tufts of yarn all over the dress - so kooky!

DVF Kaftan

Hello loves!

Is anybody else having a rough time with the weather? They say a steady drizzle is worse than torrential rains- and it's drizzling again today. This post is another one from my birthday weekend when I had a lazy Saturday at Sheer Rocks. I also wore a black monokini underneath.

The best thing about kaftans is how easy they are to style.

One of my newest additions is this Diane Von Furstenburg dress that I am already over-wearing. LOL

For a foundation garment, I've used a Benetton dress liner- another find from the spring cleaning a few weeks ago. It almost ended up in the junk pile, but I figured it would make a good petticoat (don't judge me)

... too late?...Ah well

Thakoon Maxi

Hello Loves

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend. I spent mine in full wedding mode as a bridesmaid for one of my best girlfriends. It was a beautiful, classy and fun event and every turn was a new photo opportunity. Truly a well thought out event. I wouldn't be surprised to see it in a magazine- it was that good.

We all flew out for the wedding and unlike Antigua, St. Kitts was not too rainy- but I think I had a bit of a bug so now I am suffering from laryngitis- no fun. Nonetheless it was a wonderfully romantic weekend for both the couple and their guests- and we will not soon forget it. It was also great to reconnect with old University friends, and finally meet/ introduce them to all the new additions in our families - UWI for life!

On to the outfit: 

Dress: Thakoon

Sandals: Zara

Bracelets: David Yurman

.... by now you know I love a maxi
