Memo 175: Playing the Field in Stripes and Paisley

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 26, 2015
Subject: Field Trip

Blue and white stripes will make it alright!
Throw in some paisley and you might get a little hazy
Add shoes that shine bright whether day or night
I'm a poet and I didn't even know it

Look out for my mixtape that's going to drop Summer 2015.
Anything sounds good over the right beat. Ask I Love Makonnen....

Memo 174: Floral and Denim Mash Up

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 24, 2015
Subject: Featuring the Kyu Melange Sunset Clutch

Here lately, I've been holding back on a few rants. I pick up the phone to take it to Twitter, Facebook, or any Social Media outlet that is ready to listen. Then, I slowly put the phone down. "Back away from the phone, Tiff" and then I think to myself "What would Oprah do? How would Barack handle this?". Because let me tell you, Ba-Bee, people will try your spirit and test your patience. Won't they? Holla if you hear me.

I call my mom, instead, and then proceed to write a rant about not ranting. Thanks for letting me vent. Just know, we all get tried. All of us. What makes us different is what we decide to give energy and what we simply ignore. Give energy wisely.

On to the look, I've been feeling pretty floral-ly lately. Like, I just want to smell the roses, dance in the rain and eat ice cream for dinner. So, I created a little mash up with floral and denim mixed with some tassel and a dash of neon.

Memo 173: It's a Date!

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 19, 2015
Subject: Floral and Lace

These past couple of weeks, I've been having date night and what to wear on said date nights on my mind. I mean, I always feel like I never have anything to wear.  I often find myself sitting on the floor of my closet staring into space. Therefore, I need to plan ahead a little.  I'm trying to practice staying ready so that I don't have to get ready! The new Minute (Wo)Men.

When I put this floral and lace look together, I know that it would be perfect for brunch (with unlimited Mimosas, of course), the museum, or drinks at a lounge on a Sunday night. 

Oh and let's not forget to take notice of the open toe fur booties. Yes to the ma'am!

Memo 172: Gold Pants Will Make Her Dance

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 17, 2015
Subject: Date Night Fever

Do you have a upcoming casual date night? No worries, bring out those gold sequin pants and your favorite abstract art printed grey sweatshirt and get to it!

Oh, yeah, Happy belated Valentine's Day to you all! I hope it was everything that it should have been for you and more.  All last week, I was trying to come up with some not-so-typical date night ideas.

Here's what I came up with:

TWP Approved Date Night list
  • Take a visit to your favorite local art museum and finish the date with brunch and unlimited mimosas
  • Get active with an indoor rock climbing gym experience followed by a scenic lunch
  • Get lifted in a hot air balloon and take in the views below
  • Take a visit to your local bookstore and share life experiences over coffee
  • Cuddle up under the stars while watching an outdoor movie with an impromptu picnic
  • Relax your mind and let your conscience be free with joint spa appointments
  • Get in the giving spirit with a shared volunteer activity

What say you? Do you have any not-so-typical date night ideas to add to the list? I would love to hear if you did anything particularly interesting for Valentine's Day #SpreadLoveItsTheBrooklynWay

Memo 171: Book Worm

To: All
From: Me
Date: February 13, 2015
Subject: RIS (Reading Is Sexy)

Books do something to my spirit and I'm not lying. I can literally spend all day in a bookstore between several piles of books spanning all different types of subject matter. And there's nothing like a shiny, new, crispy paged book to get lost in. 

Here's a little known fact about me, I'm pretty old school about my planner and my books. I'm addicted to pages. There's something about writing down thoughts, ideas, goals and turning a page that allows me to really connect with the subject a little bit better.

I am currently in the middle of about 3 different books with a new addition (#GirlBoss) on the horizon:
They are all great reads that serve different purposes for my life.

Someday, I will actually start and finish one of these books. Until then, I'll be reading a few pages per book a day. It all just really depends on how I'm feeling #Mood.

Memo 170: Ice Cream Sprinkled Stripes

I know, I know! It's been a minute, right? Don't hate me, k? Sometimes life shows up. 

So, about these stripes. Yup, loving them. When I spotted this massive pinstripe scarf over at ASOS, I knew I had the perfect outfit to bring it to life. I mean the scarf giveth life on its own but I sent it into stripe overload and it's one for the books!

The look is super stylish and works for most occasions especially stopping for ice cream!
