BIRTHDAY!!!!

Hello All!

Had the best birthday with my friends and family! We went to Firefly DC in Dupont Circle, It was the best place to have a ladies birthday brunch! I had the best food, I choose my favorite French toast topped with Blueberry and raspberries...Super Yummie!

You realize that little things by getting together with your best girl friends...is the best birthday present. Just making time is what I'm learning! I’ve known these ladies half of my life. Some I met in college, at my past and current jobs, and at fashion events! We still keep in touch and when we get together we have the best time! I still continue to learn and grow with each of these ladies. They inspire me and make me want to do more. Nonetheless, they encourage me to follow my passion and goals which really makes me want to strive to be best Akinyi. I really enjoyed my birthday and my sister, family, and friends made it special!

Fashion Love,

Akinyi

LUSH FASHION LOUNGE X FITSONME....

Who doesn’t love brands you can feel comfortable in. I love lush fashion lounge an online boutique that caters to women that want affordable apparel. But yet they can look chic, cool, and sophisticated. 

I love the lush fashion lounge I’m allabout comfort finding items that I can still look comfortable and cute. During the cold weather, I don’t want to bundle to much. I found this coat that has furry material in the inside. Believe me it keeps me super warm. I decide to pair it with my Who wear boots for a pop of color. 





Photographer: Seda G 

WHAT I WORE 
Lush Fashion Lounge:Jacket 
Nordstorm Rack:Jeans 
H&M:Striped Top
WHO WHAT WEAR: Velvet Booties 

Second look from Lush Fashion Lounge was a burgundy velvet skirt. I love this skirt I feel like you can wear during the summer time with a cool flowy top. It’s such a versatile skirt that you mix and match patterns or wear it with another velvet top which will make this look so royal!!!

WHAT I WORE:

Thirft Store: Jacket 
Steve Madden: Velvet Booties 

Third look from Lush Fashion Lounge was a tulle i picked a teal color and paired it with a velvet green dress. What’s fun about this look adding under dress over the tulle. Really gives my look a completely different look!!! I  kept everything neutral adding just a pop of color. It really spiced up my look and gives funky feel.

DAY 2 AKIRA X HAWAII....







Photographer: Hannah C 

WHAT I WORE: 
Akira: Jumpsuit 
H&M: Shoes
Ross: Sarong 


Hawaii is the ultimate vacation place to relax....key word relax!! I seriously love the air was so cool and refreshing. People in Hawaii are so laid back they take their time. Let’s say, they have an appointment at 5pm it’s more like they arrive exactly at 6pm. They call it here I’m on “Hawaii Time”. I think spending time with family was the highlight of my trip. Especially you live your life and how as a youth to an adult you’ve completely changed. It’s so different I like seeing how my family has grown definitely my cousins. Wishing we had more time to spend with them! 

I really need to make more time to go on vacations,I think this was the best vacation yet. I want to take more time to explore different countries. I think my next stop is Paris!

For my look, I received this jumpsuit from Akira. It’s flowy with it’s light fabric makes it the perfect jumpsuit for Hawaii. I like akira clothing they have a wide selection of women apparel. By looking on the website you can pick that best item that works for you and your body type. I paired it with a sarong it totally compliments my red look. If you don’t have a sarong you definitely need to get one now!!!
