G-Dub is forGray & White 😻🐈 Deuces ✌

I started going gray before I turned 30.

TMI, am I right?

  1. Going gray
  2. I’m >30yo

But I might as well keep it real about my age and aging process!

How’d I begin my silver streak👵🏽 in the first place?

  • My seasoned teacher colleague whose office was down the hall from mine had a head full of gray hair and suggested ~ actually, more declared ~ to me that this is a sign that we’re smart

👴🏽White👓 = 💡WISE!!!

My BFF and sis observed their own prior to mine. I first noticed it while I was doing my game day braids👧🏻 the post-season after my NBA D-League🏀 team won the 🏆NBA-DL championship

Now that I’ve found a few more stragglers as I’m growing out my hair to donate without chemicals after I graduate, I’m looking at the bright [light –> white] side ~ the silver lining, if you will (hence the pun)

At least I still have hair on my head!

Speaking of white, here in other news📰 …

🌠My impeccable style + my adjunct 🍎teaching🍏 income (lack thereof ~ yet happy to have a job) while I’m on sabbatical for doctoral school = 🍹champagne🍸 taste on a 🍺beer🍻 💰budget💸

Enter Mami Aya👩🏻 to the rescue!

My dear Nanay has been wanting to revamp my 💃🏽wardrobe, and with my 🎈birthday🎁 around the corner (hint hint), I took her up on her offer while mixing in pieces that I already have!

White Bottoms & Color Blocking + Silver & Gold = #BOLD

B&W

Since I wear white bottoms between Memorial Day & Labor Day, here’s what I wore to our evening/Vigil Mass at Church last weekend: my new *white HOT* slacks {Liz Claiborne Emma} paired with black off-the-shoulder blouse {*Express} over navy blue tank top {GAP} + black patent leather wedges {BCBG} + black & white color block handbag {Coach Hamptons} ~ I pay attention to every single detail, so the silver hardware on both my purse & sandals coordinate! [Alternate top: zebra striped cowl neck peplum {EXP*} 🇺🇸💒👠👒👜

Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen: My obsession with peach/coral has taken us by storm through this color block dress with taupe piping & white bottom {Calvin Klein} that looks dayum good with these nude patent leather cork wedges with gold trim {Antonio Melani, Dillard’s exclusive} ~ top it off with my rose gold heart tote {Guess?} + gold ♥heart♥ jewelry & we’re off! #PrettyInPink #GoForTheGold 🍑🌺👗👡💝👜👛🎀

Antonio Melani

My *new* nude (also available in black) patent leather cork wedges with gold trim by Antonio Melani can go with anything! ♥Love♥ the Tiffany Blue box & surroundings?

Cat Jewelry

My main ring & bracelet holder is this *Freedom* Cat!

“So, ok.” Happy 2-Decade ♥Anniversary♥ to Clueless ~ an inspiration behind my own teenage trendsetting! “As if!”
