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!
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

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:

This is what I wore to work this weekend. I'm still slumming it without my DSLR, but I hope that I can get back on track tomorrow. It's gonna be a busy Sunday for me as a few of my favourite people celebrated birthdays over the past few weeks, so we are spending time with family and friends. It's important to do that... and remember what really matters.
Hope you guys are doing that too - it's a short ride- enjoy it.
