Hello dolls!! it feels good to know I am not talking to my self if you are new to our family I just want to welcome you!
I dont know about where you live but we are paying for our mild winter where I live with daily 100+ degree weather, now I know for some folks this is the norm but here it is not.
Anyway back to the matter at hand its hot so what to wear! 
over the last couple of years I have started to learn to be comfortable with my body but as I stated in the previous post it took me some time and one hangup that I still struggle with are my arms which I inherited, so I usually shy away from anything sleeveless and would default to three quarter sleeves. However as the temperature rises I have had to damn my hangups and am now wearing what will keep me as sane/cool as possible.
I spotted this mint green SLEEVELESS top at H&m for $12 I was so excited cause at that time I was having a MINT moment. I decided to pair it with this cute BODY-CON skirt from forever and…….

perfect sunglasses for face shape
Shirt : H&M Skirt/Bracelets/Sunglasses/Necklace/shoes/Bag : F21
how to sportswear and pastel trend

Sometimes I marvel at the fact that I was born and partially raised in a tropical climate ( west Africa) because I really hate heat=sweat! I am quite miserable when I am hot lol!
Anywho as I was looking at my posts I notice a trend( lol like I have that many posts)most of my outfit posts have been on the casual side (heel-less) and to be quiet honest you will get a lot more of that from me.
 So I decided to do a day to “night” post, if you are familiar with my YOUTUBE channel you will know this is one of my favorite thing to do, wear one thing multiple ways.I am going to be quiet now lol! and if you took the time to read all of this give yourself a pat on the back.
 So ladies how do you feel about sleeves/less (even when its not flattering) yay or nay ?

P.S I know their is all this controversy about spanx/shape-wear/girdles but I am for them, I believe they give your clothing the ideal framework to sit on and honestly if you’ve had a child it keeps the under belly under control.

    Girl, let me tell you! *gasps* one of my BIGGEST hangups with my body is my stomach, I have a lot/hate thing with it, sometimes I think it's fine and it looks quite decent and then sometimes I won't wear certain things because I feel like my stomach is just acting out that day. I feel it makes me look disproportionate, but the moral of my story here is that I absolutely understand where you're coming from with the hangups you had/have with your arms. I'm working on mine one season at a time, this summer I'm gonna try flaunt my body a little more and yes I agree with you, spanx do help and much like you I'm all for them.

    We're having a terrible winter here in South Africa and this season is when I'm most miserable, I wouldn't mind switching seasons with you right now! That skirt is beautiful, love the mint green shirt, the whole outfit is a cool summery chic ensemble.

    Girl, I'm all about the those Spanx!

    Even though I'm Nigerian (but born and raised in the DC area) and I've been to
    Nigeria multiple times, I still don't like hot weather. I don't DO hot weather. UGH! Fall season better hurry up and make its debut.

    Anywho, you look great. Cute skirt.
