In a Queen State of Mind

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw my announcement a couple months ago announcing a collaboration with three other bloggers. If you missed the announcement, meet the District Queens.. The District Queens is made up of (from left to right) Yasmine – darkerberrie, Tiffany – @policyandfashion, Myself @YoSoyYayaR and Joy – @enjoycurves. We’re all bloggers growing our brands and trying to make our mark, who have decided to create a movement together that celebrates love for our curves, cultivating friendships, as well as collaboration and empowerment for women. Here are some of my shots from our first shoot. I am usually my BIGGEST critic because I hate being in front of the camera, but our photographer Kevin did his THANG! Dress: Old Navy (circa ‘2015), Similar /Shoes: JustFab You can follow the District Queens on Instagram and Facebook to catch more of our looks from this shoot.

My style honestly depends on my mood or the occasion. One day I will wake up ready to slay the day and be super fashionable. Other days (like today), I am so tired, I throw on anything…
