What To Wear To Howard's Homecoming: Yardfest / Mecca Fest

fest I have this strange feeling that this whole Yardfest / "We're-Not-Affiliated-With-Howard-University-Homecoming-But-We're-Gonna-Call-Ourselves-Mecca-Anyway" Mecca Fest mess is gonna have half your friends at Yardfest because free and half your friends at Mecca Fest because fun. But either way, you're going to be standing around all day with pretentious upwardly mobile black folks who are looking for a good time. And this Tees In The Trap shirt was literally made for every Howard woman that was called bougie when she was just tryna live her life. Pair with these Topshop acid washed jeans, a peplum leather jacket (similar here) and a scarf from H&M,  Lauren by Ralph Lauren hoops, a printed crossbody bag by Pour La Victoire and flat (FLAT) Just Fab boots. Yall can stand around day in heels, but I'm not about that life. But I am about that vampy lipstick life so you should try out this deep red shade from Urban Decay for whatever plans you and have your friends make.
