Memo 096: I’m ONE!!!

Happy One Year Blogaversary to me!!

I’m super excited to be here and I’m so glad that you’ve been along for the ride. I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for this blog. As a way to show my appreciation, I’m giving one of you lucky readers a gift! Click “More Werk” for the details.

On to the outfit…

This is my Howard University Homecoming look from the Sunday Brunch/Day Party. Yes, you read that right. There was a brunch immediately followed by a day party. I’m not sure to this day who played in the football game or who won but I did know the time and location of every party going on this past weekend! I felt that this look fit both of the occasions. It was girly enough for a Sunday brunch and jazzy enough for the day party!
