Joia Monet – Longline Vests | Floppy Hats | Sailor Shorts

“Whoever said floppy hats could only be worn in the spring and summer seasons?”


I put together another transition look to accommodate the cooler weather — floppy hats included! Who said they could only be worn in the spring and summer seasons? This longline vest, gifted to me by my grandmother, is a favorite because it can be styled with pretty much anything to add a laid back feel. It suited this light blue, Victoria’s Secret bodysuit thrifted from The Salvation Army and navy blue, sailor shorts from H&M perfectly. A pair of tights, boots, and a couple more accessories completes this casual yet chic look.





Play around with some of your warmer pieces, and you may find that you don’t need to temporarily remove them from your wardrobe for the next few months. I bought, everything excluding the boots and jewelry, this past summer, so it also aids in saving money too! Until next time, shop smart, stay creative, what what you want, and always stay true to you!

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
