Did I Swipe Left on My Husband?

I’m not shy when it comes to talking about my love life. It’s also no secret that I’m a social butterfly. So last week, when my co-workers asked me why I was excited to be attending a few Congressional Black Caucus events, I answered honestly; “because my husband might be there.” Just as I was patting myself on the back for garnering some laughs with my cheeky response, one of my co-workers muttered, “I’m pretty sure I swiped left on my husband already!” The room erupted with laughter, but I couldn’t help but wonder, “Did I swipe left on my husband?” Cue mini panic attack.

Chambray Dreams

One day, while walking through Target after making a return, I noticed this dress hanging on a rack.  In that moment a voice in my head said, "Charmaine, you just made a return and you have to get back to work... just leave girl"… but just as I turned to exit, an even bigger voice in my head cried, "Charmaine, that dress was made for you... please try it on".  I'm not one to ignore a cry for help, so here we are.

Easy Breezy Summer Linen Look

Nothing says "summer" like a crisp linen look.  I love the effortless vibe that linen exudes, so when I saw this matching set, I knew that I had to have it.  One thing that you can't tell about me from my blog or Instagram is that I like to joke around with my family and friends a lot.  With my twenty sixth birthday on the horizon, my latest joke has been that I'll be dressing more like a wife moving forward in an effort to be the change that I want to see.  I now ask myself, "What would Meghan Markle wear?" in the wake of my many fashion conundrums.  Duchess dreams aside, this linen outfit is a lovely edition to my grown woman wardrobe.
