" It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine, Salt & Pepa, Heavy D up in the limousine..." ~NOTORIOUS BIG 

As a proud New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, I thought it was only fitting to shout out The late, Christopher Wallace, a.k.a Biggie Smalls, a.k.a The Notorious BIG on what would have been his 42nd Birthday (May 21, 1972)

Wearing this BROOKLYN tee with a vintage print pleated midi. 

My oversized blue Zara tote (past season) and a simple pair of black sandals . 

Simple Street Style & ode to one of my fave rappers of all time..Notorious BIG

Hola CHICsters, 

How was your weekend? Mine was excellent!!! I went to a Caribbean party or "fete" as we call it on Saturday and I had so much fun. WooHoo it feels good to get out and dance and vibe with your friends and family from time to time. 

Now that all of my weekend's excitement is over, it's back to my regular motions. Client appointments, shopping, blogging, researching content, and time with my kiddos. But stay tunes for next weekend when I shall be turning up again for Atlanta Caribbean Carnival ..YASSSSS!!!! 

This outfit is a good look for This warmer season with these cognac colored leather look shorts. 

I paired it with a vintage blouse I got while on another of my Thrift Treasure Hunts for $1.50 #score

Paired it with a chunky green statement necklace and these heels I got from ZARA a few seasons ago. These shoes was such a good buy. Although the heels  are both high and thin, the elastic band straps make them super comfortable. I'm gonna wear these bad boys forever!!! let's get into this clutch!!! This is actually the very first item I ever purchased from a thrift/vintage store 6 years ago...I mean seriously though??? It's oversized, patchwork, and it has one of my fave animals on elephant. I'm so here for this! 

I'm kind of late with the leather shorts trend, but I'm loving the ease of them. They can be dressed up or down and will be making a repeat on the blog in the near future, HA! 

Do you have a pair of "leather" shorts? How do you rock em'? Tag me on Instagram @chicpantry #CPStyle to show off your look

Hey there Loves, 

I know I haven't posted in a few days but work has me ΓΌber busy (which is great for my bank account LOL). Well CHICsters, it's almost my fave time of the year ...My Bday (Whoop whoop)...and this year I feel a little different. I'm turning flippin 37!!! THIRTY SEVEN???? What? WaitaMin...when did this happen??? I swear I was like 26 last year LOL, or so it seems. I feel like although I've accomplished a lot over the years I have yet so much I want and need to do. Especially now that I fall into the "late thirties" category *side eye* . Is time running out or am I just full of anxiety? I don't know but either way I'm looking forward to 37 and all the great things it has to offer. 

...and in the meantime let me get a few last wears out of my THIRTY SIX top ;-)
