Style Wish List: Leopard Clutch x Love Cortnie

LoveCortnie_Ashleigh Clutch Styled

Is it me or has walking out the door for work these past few days been feeling a bit more brisk than usual? Fall is that you boo? Summer flew by. I blinked and here it is September. I was JUST celebrating my sons last day of Kindergarten in June. TIME slow down pleaseee. I barely had a chance to break in any summer style and I am already getting my fall wardrobe together. Over the past couple of years my style has really “grown up” and I find myself less concerned with trends and more focused on creating a solid wardrobe and curating pieces from indie, conscious, and–my passion–brown girl owned brands. Supporting my brown girls is what. I. do. and I want to translate that in every area of my life. Including my closet girl.

I believe I was surfing the gram when I came across style blogger Cortnie and learned that aside from her dope blog she creates her own line of bags: Love Cortnie. Forever a clutch enthusiast I was excited when I came across this large leopard clutch on her site. LOVEEEE.

For me, an oversized printed clutch is a staple in my minimalist-afro-chic wardrobe (yes that’s a thing don’t debate me on this). Since most of my outfits are pretty simple, accessorizing is key. Skinnies, tee, and blazer = simple. WITH an large leopard clutch = girl you better werk.

Check out Love Cortnie for a pretty irresistible collection of printed clutches including the one on my wish list which is the Ashleigh. Handmade fashion by a brown girl. Get into it. As for me, I’m off to selectively place the link to this post in the hubs mentions ;).

What’s on your current style wish list? Any brands I should be checking out?

Stay Blessed Beautiful!

Is anywhere else as hot as it’s been in Philly this past few weeks? My snapchat temperature has been at 85+ for weeks–thisbrownqueen if you want to add me!

On the days I’m not wearing a maxi dress, I’m super casual in shorts and a tank. And a pair of chucks of course. Classic man. I bought this super cute bag at Odunde (an African festival in Philly) last month. I love it as a clutch or with the strap and I dress it up or down, whatever I feels.

Stay blessed beautiful!

Summer Style: Maxi Dresses

Everybody has that one thing that is their signature seasonal item to wear. For me, it’s boots in the fall, long cardigans in the spring, and maxi dresses in the summer. I love maxi dresses so much that if it was up to me I’d just buy a whole bunch and wear them everyday. But the way my life is set up (currently) I can’t. But a girl can dream. Goals.

Maxi dresses are just the ultimate summer must have. They’re cute, easy, super versatile and the list goes on. Here are a just a few I’m crushing on…my birthday is later this month…maybe the Mr. will come read the blog and take a hint ;).
