To borrow from U.S. Senator Maxine Waters. From the weekend before last and this past weekend.
Hey Family how are you all this fine day?
Well I'm going post snaps from our weekend adventures from last weekend and this past weekend.
Little Zi'Joy was under the weather and I caught the same thing. My
sister was a great help and my wonderful village in helping me take care
of my little one. We still managed to get out of the house to
celebrate the annual Fleek Market. After that we were both worn out.
We went to church on that Sunday but for the most part stayed in the
house to recover and by the end of the week Zi'Joy and I were out having more adventures.
So for the Fleek Market (Flea) we wanted casual comfortable. I had this jumper it is bright bright sun yellow.It just makes me happy. I went print with the head wrap and a men's
t-shirt that I cut in half and tied the ends. Haha I've sang about my
feet going to a size 12 after my pregnancy to Zi'Joy. I was able to
find these cute brand new size 12 crocs in the Salvation Army. Can you
imagine my sheer joy when they fit. I did the dance of joy in finding
them. I found this Denim bag at the thrift many years ago. I use it to
go thrifting with. Zi'Joy wore a denim jumper with polka dots a
African print headband and a pink top. The budget is limited but we
were able to find some nice things. All for a total of $20 oh the joy, Zi'joy is modeling all that we found.
On this past Saturday we went to our first Vegan Festival at one of the
Local Colleges. Chicago State the Taste of Vegan. There were yoga
& Drum classes vendors and international music and it was free entry
and parking. So So much fun. On this day we choose to wear a dress
for me that says Black girls rock a high/low sweater Custom made hat and some red tennis shoes. For Zi'Joy an custom made onesie with African print fabric and cute pink joggers and socks. By the time the day was over Zi'Joy was gifted this beautiful head wrap material from one of the vendors and we left happy and full.
Sunday for us is church and visiting day for us. Chuch had Zi'Joy in striped overalls and another custom onsie and the head wrap we were gifted the day before. I wore a set of denim harem pants a olive green sheer top and an animal print camo head wrap. How did we do with the pictures? I took our selfie stick and tried a photo shoot on my own with these.
A quick change and we were off to a Flea Market in a hip trendy area know as Hyde park. Music and all of Zi'Joys honorary Aunties were there so we mainly go to fest to enjoy the day. We were supposed to wear matching overalls but Zi'Joy needed a change so she wore a striped onesie and I had on my thrifted upcycled overalls. We did not purchase anything but again Zi'Joy was gifted beautiful flower crowns and belated baby shower gifts. I love being part of a creative community as well as the technology sector for work. Maybe one day my love for both will be combined.
I hope all is well in whatever space you find yourselves in. We especially want to say a prayer and send good vibes to those who are caught in the path or Hurricane Harvey.
I know I'm long winded but I included pictures if you just want to look and or comment all are welcome. Until next time be well on your Fashion
