Greetings loved ones! (snoop Dogg voice),
I usually don’t blog too much about travelling, but this time around I was dead excited. After years and years of learning and reciting the theme song of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, I finally got the chance to travel to the beautiful state of California. I had always dreamed of what it would be like to be a California Girl (queue Katy Perry), and I finally had the chance to taste it á la carte.
I was heading down for a wedding, accompanied by my sister and my grandmother. First of all— let me just show you how gorgeous my cousin, her husband and this wedding was:
It was myself and my sister’s first time as bridesmaids and what a honour it was. I was so excited to witness black love live in action. Everything came together so wonderfully. Please, join me in congratulation Mr. and Mrs. Earl Henry!!!
Aside from the wedding, I tried to fit in as many other fun activities as I could in a short 4-day span. I’ve never been a pro at packing light, but this time around I really didn’t have much of a choice. I had to be smart with my choices and ensure that they fit to suit the San Diego sun. I like my choice of vintage clothes, which many of you know translates to— “I raided my grandma’s closet and found these gems”. What I loved most about this look is the classy feel it gave off, and my ability to make it look like I tried way harder than I did. Besides, loving fashion doesn’t mean I have to be dressed the the 9’s all the time- but why not look like it?
While we were in San Diego, we stayed at the Hilton in Rancho Bernardo. I found a quaint little court-area to pull off this shoot, which to me, completed the look even more.
Here’s a look at my first documented San Diego look!

And of course, I threw together a lil’ shookbook to add to that daily dose of fresh. Take a look below:
