i have a lot of nicknames that people have come up with for me. one of them is the cardigan queen. i live in cardigans! not only do i love the feel and how it can shift the look of what i have on, i also have to keep my tattoos covered at work. a cardigan is the perfect way to do that without the stiffness of a jacket or a coat. plus, i tend to run a bit warm so having the ability to easily roll up my sleeves is a must.
as if i wasn’t already obsessed with my custom crewneck, imagine my excitement when hazy + rose co. rolled out so much great inventory including amazing cardigans?! this was made exponentially better when i saw that one of my favorites came with pockets.
i am all about figuring out how to look put together while also being comfortable for my endless number of zoom calls daily. bonus points are given when the item is functional. with me having misu (my little maltipoo) now, pockets are great for me to throw my keys and phone into when taking him down the block for potty breaks. this amazing cardigan allows for all of that. plus, i somehow only had one other black cardigan (gray is my favorite neutral so a lot of my staples are in that color instead).
hazy + rose co. has so many great pieces that are perfect for working from home that transition well if you are leaving the house. when buying an item, i often think about the cpw (cost per wear). a cardigan like this one can be worn with loungewear, to work (as pictured here), to brunch (with a crop top and some skinnies) or for date night (with a fitted dress and a pair of booties). the possibilities are endless.
lucky for you all, hazy + rose co. is having another drop this sunday, the 24th. for those of you in the sacramento area, a pop-up shop is happening on the 13th (my birthday!). and, a HUGE drop is scheduled for valentine’s day. if you are not doing so already, be sure to follow hazy + rose co. on the gram. you will be happy you did!
i am a sucker for a good rosé and this one by the mcbride sisters might be my new favorite!
it was gifted to me by my dear friend, tay. like me, she appreciates good wine and loves supporting small businesses, especially when owned by black women.
*a photo of tay and i at the sf vintners estate event last fall – we always say yes to wine!
the mcbride sisters were long lost sisters who connected and created something magical. they are now the largest black owned wine company in the united states but what i love most is that they are both sustainable and socially aware.
they seem to have something for everybody – whether you love riesling, rosé, reds or something sparkling, there are beautifully bottled options to choose from.

have you tried any of the mcbride sisters wine? if so, which is your favorite?
happy hump day!
so, you all know how much i love supporting small businesses, especially ones that are being run by wonderful women. if you are looking for comfortable, cozy and chic loungewear, look no further. hazy + rose has everything you need.
i typically don’t use words like always/never/everything because they aren’t usually applicable. hazy + rose is the exception. from colors to cuts to customization to true size inclusivity, there really is something for everyone. i know that even on the days i am working from home, i often want something a step above pajamas but that still feels comfortable to be in all day. hazy + rose hits the nail on the head. you can visit their instagram here.
when they launched a couple of weeks ago, i hopped online a bit too late in the day to order everything i wanted but knew i needed the take it easy tee. here in la, we are still having summer weather so i was holding off on the crewnecks. naturally, my friend biz (one of the three founders) hit me up to tell me she had ordered an olive crewneck especially for me but left it blank so i could customize it with whatever i wanted. first of all, i was flattered because this was totally unexpected. secondly, i could not think of what i wanted it to say. i ended up telling her to print whatever she thought described me best and that my only request was that everything be in lowercase letters. i was obsessed when this came in the mail!
who doesn’t love champagne for breakfast? it goes perfectly with my cream and gold mug.
back to hazy + rose – my take it easy tee is so soft and i love the color scheme.
how could you not be absolutely obsessed?
i also was impressed with how fast things were shipped, especially considering the pandemic. i was able to track my order the entire way. does anyone else obsess over shipping when buying things online or is it just me?
tomorrow, 10.15, there is going to be amazing new merchandise released. if you are looking to customize anything, just shoot the girls at hazy + rose a dm. they would love to hear from you and are constantly adding new items and sizes based on requests from their clients. what’s not to love?
once you order, let me know your favorite item!
