Soooo Tropicana: Smorgasburg

by Jamila Pierre

My husband decided that he would take me out this weekend. He took me to an event called "Smorgasburg", it's a food market in Dumbo Brooklyn that showcases food from different restaurants and independent farmers. We first heard about this place on the cooking channel and being the "foodies" that we are, we couldn't didn't hurt that they emphasized that the food wash "Dirt Cheap".

I decided that though it was a scorcher outside...I would still don my black leggings, cause as it's hot and sweaty is the probability of my thighs burning holes into one another. I also decided to wear my tall boots, yes...I know I know, it's too freakin' hot for this...but ask me if I care.

I am absolutely in love with this skirt and top combo that I purchased this top many moons ago, at separate times, and I had no idea how I was going to pair either piece.  

Typically I know exactly what I want to do with a piece when I purchase things, and you're probably looking at these pieces and saying to yourself, "Really're a style blogger and you didn't know how to pair these pieces...?"  

YES, I had no clue. 

It's one of those things where you just have to feel it in your bones to know it's right. I mean I did try and pair it with various things...but it just wasn't positively vibrating my Chakras.  

Today however, the two pieces that seemed to be lone rangers in their own right, merged together to create a symphony of vibrations that moved my Chakras to sing and dance. 

(Didn't capture images of said singing and dancing) 

I also decided to pair multi-colored belt with this look because mixing prints can be done in so many ways and I wanted to demonstrate that.

Also found one of the most perfect pair of shades at Old Navy, can anyone say HELL YESS?!!!?!!!
