Ah, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Land of the-well, I don't really know what the city's known for other than being the capital of Pennsylvania. But I do know it's in very close proximity to Hershey, PA where none other than-you guessed it-Hershey Park is located. You can spend an afternoon digging through the local thrift stores (which there are tons of), chow down on some pretty authentic Mexican cuisine, and have a killer, locally sourced brunch at The Mill. And it's not too difficult to be the best dressed person in town while you do all of this.
This look, pulled together pretty quickly for an impromptu shoot, is mostly about shades of gray. Monochromaticity is still a big thing this year, and I just happened to have several pieces packed into my tiny suitcase that were all the same color. The key to pulling off a monochromatic look is to avoid matching exact hues. Each gray, whether it's the sweatshirt, pants, or boots, is slightly different. But all the pieces still work together to tell a cohesive gray story. A navy coat bounces well off this look and keeps things from getting too dull.
This is simplicity at its best-free of patterns and graphics. But it was just right for a small town, overcast winter day. Have you tried the monochromatic look? What's your favorite color for this trend? Let me know in the comments!

During this era of political unrest, Black Bourgeois is using a mixture of social activism and American-made fashion to empower the black community.
Once upon a time, I found pride in being called an "influencer". But now, that label is a thorn in my side.
I considered myself pretty healthy...until I fainted due to mild dehydration. Now I'm revisiting the basics of everyday health.
New York is a demanding place-one that most New Yorkers are proud to live in. But maybe I've reached a point where the city has asked for too much.
A year and a half into my freelance journey, I've learned a lot. It'd be selfish of me to keep all this info to myself...
New York City's subway has been in a state of constant decline for the last 10 years. It's time for the MTA to get its shit together.
Most people either struggle with time management or underestimate how tough it is. Don't be either of these people.
Musings on natural hair and identity...
One year into my natural hair journey, I'm further exploring the connection between black hair and identity.
It's impossible to examine my identity without understanding the intersection of homosexuality and blackness.
