Have it your way

Processed with VSCO with p5 presetFebruary is a short month, but it’s got Valentine’s Day, the sexiest day of the year. Can you believe we’re already just a stone’s throw away from our next holiday?(how i wish it was).  Valentine’s Day is a week away and there’s likely to be a last minute dash for gifts and restaurant bookings (not in for the struggle), I myself try not to get sucked into the commercialism of store-bought Valentines and overpriced set menus. There really is no reason why you can’t celebrate with your loved one in an intimate dinner at home – it does fall on a Wednesday after all! Guess am saying this because am not celebrating it.

Anyhow, apply this same simple attitude to your ideal Valentine’s Day look. Instead of going for an overly themed ensemble, show a hint of St Valentine appreciation with items you already own. Red not your color?  Try you’re favorite shade of pink instead or let alone, a decolletage dressier dress like this, It could be one of those dresses that you always wear to dinner,as long as he hasn’t seen it, the effort counts. It will give you that same romantic glow that Valentine’s Day is all about!If you’re celebrating at home be sure to be creative and keep away from doing the same stuff you did last Valentine.

Wearing For Sweater Weather

Processed with VSCO with p5 presetToday isn’t one of those days where i get to runt all post,am here to share with you how i wear for the sweater weather(trying to make the chilly weather sound fancy), I’ve enjoyed a couple of cold-weather teasers the past days. Although the change of weather affects me, i love that i get to keep my sweater or jacket on all day long,oh Gosh! If you know me, you know how much my love for layering pieces is, and also, not being a fun of  color blocking so you wouldn’t find me having more than 3 bright colors (don’t get me wrong if its your style), that should explain why most of my outfits are monochrome. Putting this outfit together was so easy thanks to Catchy classy that had me sorted out with these super soft and comfortable trousers,belt and bag, the free-size cozy rugged sweater has always been in archives for as long as a year, i added the belt to emphasize my waist and make my look edgy. My go to style for the chilly weather is blazers and sweaters. Feel free to let me know about yours in the comment box.Processed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 presetBag, Pants, and Accessories from Catchy classy

bdcf4403-2d33-4986-80e5-30e8712bfebc-1One of my favorite things to do is “social media stalking” (don’t know whether that qualifies as a hobby), so as i was stalking, I came a cross a life changing status on a friend’s whatsapp story on a “dying woman’s heartbreaking letter to the world“, (get it first class here Holly Butcher). She wrote it a day before she passed on. One of the things she mentioned in her letter was,”There will come a time and all the quotes, messages videos you see on social media that you read and ignore will make sense”,This to me was like a reflecting moment in my life. There so many times when I come across such stuff and not mind them, did it have to be from a dying woman for me to learn? There’s much to learn from her letter, It taught me never to take life for granted, Appreciate and respect everyone in my life, Utilize my time to do the things I love and most importantly, make time for God! My greatest mistake in 2017 was taking time off to figure out my blogging career. For something that I passionately adore, I must say, I honestly dozed off. Truth be told, even as i was off and thought I would research more and come back with better content, I got distracted and almost disappeared. It came to strike me later that instead of quitting for 12 months, I should’ve held on, continued with my work while doing research on how to better myself. Perhaps it was a breather for me to realize how important this is (consolation). We know, a creative mind shouldn’t be left redundant for it gets rusted and also, once time is lost, its never regained.

Now, Today is here, with me having learnt my lesson in Green, and gold Block heels filled with comfort  and the confidence I have with my style like i never left (insert a wink emoji), Wearing extravagant Stripped Palazzo pants with almost ground flowing waist strings, an off shoulder top, Green double-breasted Blazer and corduroy patent leather shoulder/handbag ready for what ever comes my way.24fd6311-9bc3-483a-a9c0-9c78c5d505c3-132f3bf7f-5419-42f3-ae9a-4b89fc64cfea-126ee26d5-9db4-46ba-82d2-472cfc317474-18b8777b3-5862-4d97-9608-570e5eb910b2

Happy New Year!!!

 

Literally My Style😘

Welcome back from the long weekend.  It’s so far the longest one we’ve had since the year began,(correct me if I’ve forgotten). I hope y’all had fun especially my Muslim buddies who were celebrating Eid al dha. One would think I actually did much but waaah, spent it with my family despite the plans I had made,(typical me).

If you know me,then you know blazers and jeans are “literally my style”. It is satisfying for me because it’s the closest I can have to looking formal taking into account that much of my work is creative,and always in the field.  I can wear them 24,7,365, and trust me,you won’t get bored each time you see me. You can acquire that by having different kinds of Blazers from the plain ones,to the striped ones,printed or even florals ones,you will be taken aback by how a blazer maximizes your look without adding much effort,(I can never have enough of them). This is also accentuated with the kind of accessories you layer your outfit with that determine whether it’s casual or formal. Add heels or pumps depending on how convinient it is for you and call it a statement look for the day. 
            Keep it simple,keep it chic!
