Hello February!

11:27 PM

Happy February!
It's the designated month of the year during which we're encouraged to learn about black heritage and educate ourselves more on our history. Stacy Dash's recent statement about eliminating Black history month in an effort to move towards integration and appease racial divides in this country is absurd to me. It is impossible to erase history, and dismantling an effort designed in part to repair the issue in the first place will do no good. I do however think that we should not wait for February to educate ourselves and gain a greater appreciation for black culture and history. 
To educate ourselves is to gain a greater understanding of our past, and with a greater understanding of our past, we can better understand the roots of many prevalent racial issues, and therefore find better ways of remedying those issues. 

Here are two books that are on my list for this month:
Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans
The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

 If you don't normally do so, take some time this month to learn a little more about black history and culture.

In addition to Black History, February is also known to awake the romantic side of even the least of romantics. That's right! Valentine's Day is right around the corner!

I put this outfit together with Valentine's day in mind. The weather was beautiful this past weekend! I am not sure what it will be like on the 14th; if last year was any indication, we'll probably have another snow storm and be stuck inside. So it doesn't hurt to get in the spirit early!

If you're still looking for a V Day dress, here are some ideas:

ASOS Soft Halter Pencil Dress
Embellished Collar Dress 
Embellished Collar Stand Dress 
Skater Dress With High Low Hem
Bright Floral Print Scuba Body Conscious-Dress 
Love Slinky Wrap Front Mini Dress

Whatever you wear this Vday, remember that who you spend it with is what actually matters!


Outfit details:
Skirt and top: ASOS
Blazer: H&M
Shoes: F21
Purse: Guess

Thank you for stopping by as always!

Until next time!

  1. Great post! I agree that Stacy Dash's comment (s) are ridiculous. Instead of taking away Black History Month as a way to promote integration we (as society) should take full advantage of this month and integrate the act of learning and appreciating. We should all try to teach other the black history of America and the world. Any culture is worth appreciating!
