This FASHION FRIDAY ensemble was my belated birthday lunch throw together.   But I just adore the way it all came together..

The Alice and Olivia Skirt:
I was over the freaking moon when I picked this one up.  Its a not so maxi maxi.. reminds me of the 90's..I swear my mom had a skirt just like this that I use to borrow..  It's textured, it's just long enough, its jagged on the bottom and it's super duper comfy!  

The  American Apparel Tank:  
This is my go to tank.  I also have one in an off whiteish yellowish creamish color..sounds garish I know...but trust me it its quite lovely. You'd be surprised how that  sort of non color color goes with everything.

The Micheal Kors Wedges:
Their ability to make me look like I'm 6 feet tall coupled with their comfort has kind of made them the leader in my everyday get ups.  Gold breaded leather.. you can't really go wrong.

The Square Bracelets:
Every year for my birthday my Godmother gives my some type beautiful accessory.. This year it was Square yellow  bracelets.  They make my day!

The H&M hat:
We all know I just  can't get enough of H&M.. Although I have to say I have not set foot in and H&M for about two months.. I feel the fever coming on.  But I am sure you will all agree they have the best  cheap head gear.  This one topped out at a whopping 9 bucks!..  

This weekend should be interesting.. I am headed to  the wedding of someone I don't know..Not Wedding Crashers style...just a guest of a guest..I always find weddings more interesting when you don't know anything about the people taking the plunge.  I makes for a great day of imagination..

Have a great weekend all!

Cheap hats and not so maxi, maxi skirts...I "Like"

Taye ;)

P.S.  Starting to gear up for my very first New York Fashion Week..  Yay
