Thrifted & Styled

Happy Monday Fellow Divamoms,

I am back in South Florida. My visit home was just what I need to go into Sleeping Beauty mode. If you follow me on Instagram (deltadivamom) you shared in the Watermelon Festival, visit to see my Granny who will be 94 on the 24th of this month, lunch with mom (Do we look alike?). Now I’m back teaching online and playing chauffer to my son for band camp. Our 13 year old cousin is visiting for the week as well. Y’all pray for my budget, wallet, fridge and sanity as teen boys eat like grown men!!

I was excited to be returning to my church since I was away for a week but awoke a bit in a blah mood which is usually the case after leaving my mom and family. Every fashionista knows brights are an instant picker upers. Pink and red to me is the new black and white. It seems to be a staple mix of color-blocking in the blogsphere. I’ve even worn it before here.

I must admit it was an instant hit. I was getting complements from the church parking lot to text messages informing me that word on the street was I looked dashing at worship service. Who better to look fantabulous for than a God who loves me enough to give me life to live as a diva, right?

If you haven’t heard, I’m now a part of the group BLMGirls (Bloggers Like Me) of sistas who blog on Facebook created by Leslie owner of Fashion du Jour. Use the hashtag to find me and all the other bloggers on Instagram and Twitter.

For the natural haired followers I’m loving my box braids. I will say the first few days my scalp went into dog in heat mode. I had to wash the hair so I don’t expect it to last more than a month before having to take them all done or have the edges rebraided.
