On the last day of the Essence Festival, I enjoyed the sounds of Kendrick Lamar, Puff Daddy and the Bad Boy Family. I had a blast! Music is therapeutic to me so I was in a zone and enjoying the vibe. Kendrick Lamar murdered the stage as usual (my second time seeing him), and Puff Daddy and the Bad Boy family took me back to the 90s and early 2000s. I couldn't stay in my seat!
I knew I would be doing a lot of jumping up and down and swaying back and forth at the event so I decided to dress as comfortable as possible. I paired a crop top with my favorite jeans. I wrapped a shirt around my waist just in case the air conditioner in the Superdome was below zero, and I threw my low-top Chuck Taylor's on to seal the look. This outfit allowed me to be stylish and relaxed at the same time. I felt sorry for the women I saw in 5 inch heels at this type of venue (the Superdome is humongous and the concrete has no mercy on your feet so always stash a pair of flip flops in your bag). I knew they would be on stretchers by the end of the concert - oh well, you live and you learn.
Hope you all had a Happy 4th. Since we are refreshed from the four-day weekend, let's go extra hard for the rest of the week!
