What a year it has been. 2022 was year a for change, but also for new travel experiences. I have the incredible opportunity to travel for work all around the country but for the past year I have also been able to travel to places on my travel wishlist such as Curacao , Tulum, Los Angeles etc. What I have noticed in my overall style as I've gotten older is that I stick to more simple modern, minimalistic look with some pops of color or patterns. Although my sense of style has changed, I still try to align it with the vibes and ambiance of whatever environment I am in. Below you will find some outfits I styled from my various trips so far.
When in Tulum
Something about Tulum screams grown and sexy with a dash of romantic . This is the entire style vibe I intended on embodying when visiting Tulum. For the first night I enjoyed a romantic dinner on the beach so I knew for my outfit I wanted it to be simple, sexy but also embody that natural beach vibe. You honestly can't go wrong with a sexy slip dress, kitten heels, simple jewelry, and a basket textured bag.

One thing I love is a nice slinky fit dress. But I also love a simple dress with a bright pop of color. When it comes to my tropical vacations I am always going to choose a comfortable dress over jean shorts and a crop top. For my birthday dinner in Curacao, I wanted to tap in to my minimalistic style but keep the vibe of color and sexy elegance. With a pop of color, always comes a pop of metallic accessories and I will always choose gold. I

It's giving .. ISLAND GYAL
It is a must that on most of my vacations I touch a body of water especially as a certified water baby and Island gyal. Although I am from Antigua& Barbuda and Trinidad every island in the Caribbean makes me feel at home. When it comes to swimsuit fashion , simple but funky with either color , cutout , or shape attracts my eye. I really fell in love with this bright orange color and loved not only the fit on my curvy shape but the extra cover up with a cute fashion forward sarong.

I recently flew to Los Angeles for a show premiere and found myself stumped on what I should wear. I didn't want to upstage any of the stars attending the red carpet but I know I wanted to stand out , step in to my new womanhood chapter of 25, and also look elegant. For an event like this, simple is always the way to go and my favorite store to achieve this look with is Zara. I ended up settling on a simple black dress with a strapless cut and shape that flattered my curves and styling it with simple gold jewelry and gold strappy stilettos. This by far is one of my favorite evening out looks and I believe screams upcoming red carpet star.

Simple yet Chic
As I mentioned before I get to travel all over the country for my job , so many weeks during each season I am in different cities for about 2-3 nights. During my trips I am pretty much always on my feet and on the go. My biggest goal in fashion especially with keeping my look simple, is being comfortable but chic. Lately I have been really inspired by Sofia Richie Grainge's style. It is so effortless but simple and chic. I am also a sneaker girlie. Especially as I get older , I will take a pair of sneakers over a pair of heels any day. For this outfit I really loved the simple structure of a button down blouse, baggy jeans, and a pop of color with stylish but comfortable sneakers.
