Hey there πŸ‘‹πŸΎ! Happy Friday & Happy Fall πŸ‚πŸπŸƒIt's time for another #FashionFavFriday! I'm loving the short BeyoncΓ© is rocking here in this shot that she posted, and we all know how popular this print is this season. Her $395 #Zimmermann shorts are gorg & if you swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΎ you can snag her look for much less! The Asos shorts (2nd image) are a cool $40 & the Asos skort (3rd image) is an even cooler $35! So go grab Bey's look before they are all gone! πŸ˜‰ #Asos #PlaidTrend #FallShorts #Beyonce

Now that fall is literally around the corner, I am coming to terms with the fact that my fav season is over 😩BUT I am happy I get to wear my fall shoes that I have accumulated over this past spring & summer on sale! One of these shoes were only approx $5! & I am so happy to wear those pink + black ballet-inspired flats bc they remind me of the DOPE #hiplet girls (if you don't know about them, look em up!) and ballet is simply bad-ass so yea πŸ’πŸΎ Plus they went from $119 to $29.99 so I HAD to get them (your girl loves a good deal). Also these copper colored #zara platform shoes give me a little extra height & shine for the fall πŸ˜‰. This is just a few of my MANY fall shoes I got this year off-season. If you want to cop some $5 fly shoes as well, read my blogpost "How I find discounted shoes" πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’» β€’

Hey guys! πŸ‘‹πŸΎ I'm back with another #FashionFavFriday & my pick for the week is this GORGEOUS Gucci marmont embellished leather ankle boot. I love the style of Gucci's fall shoes, especially the boots that resemble loafers! So since these $1590 boots are a bit out of my price range at the moment, I want to share these 2 cute loafer-like boots from Topshop (swipe this way) πŸ‘‰πŸΎ for only $30 y'all!! & what I would do next with them is DIY large pearls on the heels and voila! You have a Gucci-inspired ankle boot perf for fall and winter. #GucciDupes #FallBoots #FallBooties #PearlHeeledBoots #FashionFavs

Yesterday's #Day2 of #NYFW look. SO I had a comfy & chic outfit planned for this day but at the last minute it did not sit right on me 😩So I had a few mins to figure something out but couldn't find the items I had in mind. So I used this as the perfect opportunity to try something I usually shy away from: mixing prints. Here I mixed a little bit of everything .. ruffles, sheer, polkadot blouse, floral booties .. I figured why the heck not πŸ’πŸΎ #NYFWSS18 #OOTD #blackgirlswhoblog #browngirlbloggers #asseenonme

#DACA Every time I turn on the TV and see donald open his mouth, I get pissed. As a daughter, niece, cousin and friend of immigrants I see first hand what a chance & a dream can do for ones life and their families. To deport children, young adults and just people in general who know no other home than the US is just evil. Blaming undocumented immigrants for taking jobs when it's really that you are unemployable is ridiculous. To state this is YOUR country and people need to be deported when Americans TOOK this country from the natives is hypocritical. So what happens to those kids who only know the US, gets deported and has no family ties there & nowhere to go? All in the name of making America whi.. I mean "great" again huh? This is just one of many ways to come to decolorize America. #DefendDACA

But can I just rave about this soap for a min πŸ™ŒπŸΎ I am all the way here for this #Oatmeal&Honey bath soap from #TraderJoes! I have very dry skin & eczema and this soap is the bee's knees. It has been low humidity these past few days and this soap is helping me fight the inevitable Ash. This will definitely be in my #FallSkincare rotation πŸ‚πŸ Skin care is very important, even on the areas that rarely see sunlight. What are YOUR favs?

Happy Friday all! Today's #FashionFavFriday goes to the checked/ plaid/ tartan trend in grey and brown tones that will be big this fall and winter season. This is a classic print that is always present around fall but this year it will be seen a lot more. The first 2 images are of Monse Resort 2018 but we can snag them at a much lower price range as well! A $77 dollar Asos blazer is featured when you swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΎwhich will give you a budget friendly version of this trend. If you are here all the way for this print like I am, then check out my newest #BlogPost about how to snag pieces in this trend for under $65!! #CheckedBlazer #Tartan #Plaid #FallFashion2017 #FallFashion #Asos #Monse

Did you guys known that #GrandCentralStation in NYC has a tennis club inside that was once reserved only for the rich and famous? Well I sure didn't until last Wednesday! Head on over to my blog to read about the pre- U.S. Open Pro-AM match I attended at the Vanderbilt Tennis Club 🎾 {Click the link in my bio or head to www.cocowithlove.com}. This event also benefited cancer research & I explain a little more about it on the blog. #usopen #tennis #tennisproam #grandcentralstation #bloglovin #browngirlswhoblog #blackgirlswhoblog

Hey guys! #HappyFriday to ya! I'm back w/ another #FashionFavFriday & this week's fav is the Dior sling back heels (photocred goes to 5inch and up blog)! I've seen these shoes and the flat versions all over Instagram lately & I'm loving the simple yet elegant look of them. These bad boys will set you back $1500z Now #Zara has been KILLING the game with their shoes this fall season & their designer inspired shoes are on point. They have a pair of $69.90 sling backs that are similar to these Dior ones πŸ‘‰πŸΎ (swipe this way) & I most def will be snagging a pair. I think the embellished strap is PERFECT because it can spice up a simple denim + shirt outfit & also compliment an evening cocktail dress. It's so versatile. And peep the heel height πŸ‘€ to perfect for me. What do you think of this trend? Which will you get? #Dior #ShoePorn #SlingBacks
