Floral On The Rooftop

When you stop doing things for fun, you might as well be dead ~ Hemmingway.

I’m very much alive!

That said, I went out with a few of my girlfriends to a rooftop, day party in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Truth be told, I rarely go to parties. In fact, i’ve not had much time for dancing parties since becoming a mother at nineteen. The order of my day was school, school, work, work and more work. Don’t get me wrong, I did attend parties, but they were “proper parties;” not much dancing. And, events were all about networking.

See, in my quest to become the greatest mother, which of course, I have yet to achieve, I put my needs last. Though I lived and traveled, it was not vivaciously. I lived for my children and my family. But, now that i’m living for me too, life is love and love is living. Happy me = happy family.

Today i’m wearing my favorite summer colors, which is an ode to Dasani; very colorful and vibrant. Don’t you think? Hey, I stood out on the roof-top.

Don’t forget to live and do things for fun beauties. Life is to short

Hair up, it was soooo hot. Not the party, the weather. The party was OK!

  • Dancing parties are rare nowadays, I mostly attend dinner or cocktail parties or social, networking events as you already mentioned. I have never been to a rooftop party – these type of houses with a rooftop don’t exist here…

    Love your hair up because it shows your beautiful necklace and strapless top!

    • My culture is big on dancing parties. Everything is a dance party. I love it, but have not been a part of the scene for quite some time. There are tons of rooftops in New York City, and a lot of really beautiful ones.

      Thank you, I agree. I prefer the hair up for this.

  • You were looking hot!! What a perfect outfit for a party on a hot day. Beautiful. And yes, you have to love yourself as well but you do not always have that choice. I admire you for putting the needs of your children first. In those circumstances you had your priorities right. In my opinion.
