I'm a New Yorker tried and true. I wear a ton of black. I know in the past I've spoken about just how much I wear it, and love it because of it's slimming qualities. It's your most basic color too as it literally goes with EVERYTHING in your wardrobe...
Shop My Spring/summer Favorites
Prince & Mott is more than just a style blog, it's a celebration of self. Loving yourself and everything you have to offer the world. Featured below are some of my favorite outfit posts that really highlight things about my style that I love.
Give Me all the pink
Pink and I never really got along when I was younger. I'd always pictured it as a color that was too feminine for me. Why did girls wear pink? Why was that the chosen color for us when we were babies? I always rebelled against it.
Then as I got older I grew an appreciation for it. I'd use it for color contrast on my hats and with other accessories. It wasn't until recently that I decided to wear the color full on and it turned into a love, and into a color, I couldn't put down doe spring. Turns out my hunch was right as it's quickly becoming the color for spring.
STYLE THAT INSPIRES ME
Prince & Mott is almost a year old now. I've taken much advice and many queues from fellow bloggers about how to grow this site and my social media channels. I studying bloggers a lot as well and have a very select few that not only inspire me but I aspire to get to their levels. One such blogger and fellow influencer is Darlene of Suits, Heels & Curves.
Once upon a time, she wrote a blog about dresses and how at one point she'd been afraid of dresses but was willing to wear one and showcase certain bits she normally hadn't. Please do read it here. Folks the dress below by ASOS is the EXACT dress she wore for this post.
tHE aNXIETY OF A CROP TOP
Now folks don't get me wrong. I love fashion like the next girl, but I also know that in our society I was programmed to feel like I can't wear certain things. Men and women alike are taught very young that my body isn't good enough.
It took me a long time and self-love to realize that it’s just not true. I can indeed wear whatever I’d like and that yes people will look but that’s no reflection on the type of person you are. As my mother would say “They don’t pay your bills, why care what they think?” It was in that notion that I told Armand I wanted pictures in a crop top.
