MY INSTA-WEEKEND: July 28-29th, 2012


I had such a jam-packed weekend full of events, so glad I could make them all! I'm still adding apps to my iphone so stay tuned for more of my fancy filters and collages! Check out my weekend below:
I kicked off my Saturday afternoon at church for Crystal's Discipleship Graduation with Terrin and Wenisha! It was an amazing ceremony and was such a privilege to see my friend graduate into a sisterhood and fellowship at church. Congrats again, Crystal! #GirlfriendsWithGod

After a quick outfit change I headed into the city to hang out with the fam... I wore a orange cut-out dress from SoHo; Aldo heels; LV speedy and hoop-earrings by BEBE.   

It was a family affair for my cousin's girlfriend, Niambi! We celebrated her 30th birthday on the rooftop of the Beacon Hotel. Fun times all around!

Me and My Partner In Crime/ACE of Spades, Terrin!  

braided up.

After the day party, we hit the pool at the Capital Liason for Wenisha's week-long birthday celebration! I absolutely loved the pool and wished we could've stayed until the sun all the way down but Mother Nature had different plans....oh well. Lots of fun in the sun this weekend, definitely looking forward to next weekend's craziness...I'll be heading up all the way up North! #STAYTUNED

FIRST LADY STYLE: Michele Obama London 2012 Olympic Games

The London 2012 Olympic Games kicked off last Friday and although I didn't watch the entire Opening Ceremony, I heard that First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama looked fabulous! We have such a fashion-forward FLOTUS and I love the fact that her style is so effortless and chic. Throughout the weekend she was spotted with former Olympians cheering on the games as well as finding time to smile. Get the skinny on FLOTUS's fabulous weekend style below:

The First Lady paid a necessary visit to the US Olympic team in east London, wearing a red peplum
Zara double cloth top and black trousers.

From there, FLOTUS moved on to the American Ambassador's Residence, Winfield House, where she hosted 'Let's Move London' joined by David Beckham. FLOTUS wores white pants paired with a two tone blue athletic top, piped blazer and sneakers.

FLOTUS attended a reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace for the heads of state and governments prior to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

 Our First Lady wore a "white viscose techno crepe tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery" from the J. Mendel 2013 Resort collection, previously available here, along with a J. Mendel ivory silk satin faced chiffon pleated skirt. Metallic heels and Azaara earrings, available here! How fab does she look?! J.Mendel is one of my favorite designers!

The First Lady attended swimming and tennis competitions at the London 2012 Olympic Games Saturday wearing a BCBGMAXAZRIA Elicia Color block Tank (available here) paired with black pants to attend the swimming competition.

She was then joined by former Olympians Summer Sanders, Venus Williams and Dominique Dawes and decided to put on a black and white polka-dot dress and jacket by Tracey Reese, available here.
