The Power Suit

Spring has finally sprung. Flowers are starting to bloom and change is in the air! What type of change? Less layers, more color and women wearing pant suits. Not just any type of pant suits, but bold bright colors. Yellow, green and/or red. Yes, a lot of women have been wearing pant suits for ages, but now it has trickled down into the fashion industry. This trend was on the runway for almost 2 seasons. Can this be the resurrection of the pantsuit? I think so. With everything going on in politics with Women’s Rights we are standing up and standing out. One women in particular whose been wearing pant suits since the 1990’s when her husband was President is Hillary Clinton.

I decided to give the pant suit a try and I absolutely love it. Not only is this look sophisticated, but its comfortable, easy to wear and can be styled several different ways. Going with a black pant suit would be typical so while shopping at Zara I went into the store with one goal in mind….to purchase a bright colored suit no matter what the color. Luckily I found just that!!!

Style Tip: Have fun with your suit. You don’t have to wear a white dress shirt or high heels. Be more adventurous and try it with a tee and sneakers.

Happy Spring

It is officially the 1st day of Spring!!! Even though it doesn’t feel like it OR look like it (we still have snow on the ground) SPRING is here and here to stay. How do I know, because the weather man said so lol ….and because of The Old Farmer’s Almanac . Founded in 1792 it is still used til this day and its pretty accurate.

So what does one wear when the calendar says Spring, but it doesn’t feel like it? Shed clothing slowly. Warm temperatures during the day can turn into cold temperatures at night. You never want to be under dressed nor overdressed. It is safe to put the turtlenecks away and ok to wear mock necks. Another great way to adjust to the weather and still look fashionable is to change your jewelry. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry are earrings. I am not talking about diamond studs, I like colorful…whimsical earrings of all kinds.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY with a feature on All Things Hair

Happy International Women’s Day.

Hope-Morgan-International-Womens-Day-logoHope-Morgan-International-Womens-Day

All over the world women are celebrating what #ADAYWITHOUTWOMEN would look like. Many have decided to strike by not going to work, marching or wearing red. If you aren’t able to participate in these ways….. let your voice be heard not just on this day, but for the rest of your life! How am I letting my voice be heard? I was recently asked by  All Things Hair to be apart of their tribute on “How Women are Expressing themselves Through Their Hair.”

Here is a snippet of my thoughts……

“I’ve had natural hair for seven years. At first I was afraid of how I would look with short kinky hair. Being on this journey I have learned so much about who I am, and what my culture is all about. As an African American we are shamed into thinking our hair has to be one way and not embrace how versatile it actually can be. I am no longer afraid of who I am because as women, we are strong creatures who are a force to be reckoned with… we just have to believe and never lose our HOPE.”

Another way I’ve decided to be in solidarity with my sisters is to wear red. Red is such a powerful color! Its not too late. If you don’t have red clothing you can simple wear red lipstick.
