I knew our days were numbered but had no idea that the temperatures would drop so quickly. Chicago has been bone chilling cold which is a little premature for November, I mean we don’t typically have Spring-like weather in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, but polar vortex temps aren’t the norm either.

Apart from the cold and the few snow flurries we experienced over the weekend, the ground is still bare of white flakes and I truly hope it remains like this until forever ( which is not likely) but a girl can wish!

In other news, it is Monday… And you know what we do on Mondays… We twin!

I am a sucka for plaid, gingham, tartan or whatever you want to call it, if it has a pattern that involves squares/rectangle I shall make it mine!  So imagine my contentment when I found Neriah a pair of tartan pants to match mine! The squeals of happiness that took place (it’s the little things that excite me most).

oversized coats

My dear friend Alana is known for her regal style, and the minute cold weather hits she parades in some of the most wonderful coats a sista has ever laid eyes on. Many of these fabulous coats are part of vintage collections passed on to her ( from decades ago) by the equally stylish ladies in her life, which makes them even more drool worthy. And of course it never fails, every winter when we head out,  I’m reminded of my never ending quest to acquire the perfect oversize/boyfriend coat thanks to Miss Alana and her fabulosity!

After years of searching for the right one, I’ve have finally found the ying to my  outerwear yang, and I will share my find in an upcoming style post. But if you, much like me,  have been on a never ending quest for the perfect oversized coat allow me to introduce you to the chart I created just for you! Simple, to the point with an option for everyone regardless of style preference. AND they all retail under $200, yeah I know, pretty awesome!

Which is your favorite? I personally like them all, including the fur-tastic one my boo Alana is wearing below… I told you she was fancy!

mommy and me : Shahidah & Saniyah

 

sha4camo, white tees and sneakers… I love them!

At last, MNH’s first “mommy and me” feature is up!

I’ve entertained the idea of having stylish moms grace MNH with their presence for months, and I couldn’t be happier to see the idea finally come to fruition.

Our first guest hails from Oakland, California and truth be told, she is a woman after my own heart. Her entrepreneurial spirit and “go getter” attitude makes her a perfect fit for this month’s feature.

Below, Shahidah shares her thoughts on…

on personal style : comfy, casual with a splash of sophistication.
on how her  personal style affects her daughter’s: my daughter  is very much into style because she recognizes the effort I put into my look on a daily basis, she likes to be comfortable and enjoys adding accessories to whatever she wears. I’d say she’s influenced by my style but she loves to add her own touch to it.
on her favorite places to shop:  my favorite place to shop is Asos & my local vintage/thrift store. Asos because they have everything from basics as well as great statement pieces. I love the adventure the thrift store offers. It’s exciting simply because you never know what you’re going to find. It’s like a treasure hunt and I LOVE the thrill  when I find something amazing.
where she shops for her child:  the Gap and H&M, they’re  the perfect mix between classic and  trendy pieces, perfect for my little lady’s wardrobe.
