My #tribalchic2019 @tribehotel fit was inspired by @beyonce’s look in Spirit! So grateful to my sister @rinda.me for styling this look and @the_native_woman for bringing it to life! ❤️ @michelenduta also came through with the facebeat and had me feeling like the baddest 😎 I’m always lounging in comfortable clothes so it felt really good to dress up just for the sake of dressing up! Is this how the Kardashians feel everyday?? 👏🏾👏🏾 #blackgirlmagic Earrings @cindimini_hcm Bracelets Maasai Market
