Blazing Summer

by - August 13, 2014

Hi, I am Tanaka and I have whole-heartedly surrendered. From what you might ask?.... That would be Jamaica's heat. Had I been anywhere close to my 40s I would be of the opinion that I'm experiencing a premature onset of menopause and I'm not even being dramatic.

Ask any Jamaican, it's serious. So serious, it has taken a toll on my wardrobe. While summer is indicative of colour,  I've honestly never been a fan of a flamboyant closet. I was of the impression that I could get away with wearing black all year round, but clearly climate change has other plans for me. Next to a generous helping of coconut jelly, I've decided it would be wise to remedy the heat by adding some hues to my life- as if I had a choice.

Like the fiery sun setting over Listerine-green crystal water, is this cheeseball clad in a chiffon tomato red button up and turquoise jeans with nude heels and clutch to seal the deal :) On any given day I gladly opt for this simple combination. I really cant stress how much achieving comfort and style tickles my fancy. Perfect for a lunch date, movies or little link up with friends; its casual, chic and easy, even for the laziest among us.

When you're 5ft what are meant to be ankle length jeans, aren't actually so.
