I’m always thinking of ways to go outside my comfort zone and these bermuda shorts from H&M screamed my name. I’ve never worn bermuda shorts a day in my life and yet – they intrigued the hell out of me. I love these in-particular because of the material. Classic dress pant feel, this is a great solution for those returning back to corporate life. Throw on a blazer and some heels, or even tennis shoes and you instantly have a workplace appropriate and fashion forward look. Then here comes this cropped padded tee popping up on my Facebook ads and I knew this was the perfect match to the shorts. Originally I was going to go with a grey fedora for a more classic look, but in my efforts of highlighting and celebrating more Black fashion brands here in my city (new series coming soon) I copped this bomb mesh baseball hat from Profield Reserve and instantly transformed into Mrs. Postman.
