So we ‘borrow’ men’s clothes. (eye roll) So we like to wear their tees and shirts. (eye roll) SO WHAT? At this point I’m practically ready to raid all my friends’ closets. A shirt per male specimen should be the general rule in any group of friends. Rebecca Do you second me on this?We should all shake on it and get on with our fashion lives. The good thing ladies is we don’t need no man for this trend, unless of course we want to do the trend per se, spend nothing on achieving the look, and nail it 100%. Hence the two ways in which Boyfriend shirts trend can be done: we either buy menswear inspired shirts in a few sizes up, OR we simply borrow from the beautiful boys in our lives. God knows shirts are their uniforms, might as well capitalise on those,Just saying…..
But for this case,didn’t grab mine from anyone,I purchased it and what really drew me to it was the grey color since am trying to change my closet to pastel colors and earth tones. I didn’t want to add other colors so I paired my grey boyfriend shirt with light grey jeans and brown loafer shoes.
Have you ever hi-jacked ur boyfriends’ clothes? Share with me in the comments box.
One of the things that I love to do when styling my looks is layer two elements that are inherently opposite yet can still work together. After all, fashion is supposed to be fun and every now and then you have to try some new combinations.
So with this outfit, I layered a long open black dress that I purchased but was a size smaller and wasn’t fitting right,but as mama taught me,”never to let anything go to waste”,I thought using it as a throw-on would be a good idea,as you see,the dark blue jeans and the dress work well together even though they are opposites. Also, the front zipper bodysuit that exudes lusciousness is a great staple that can be worn by itself or as a layering piece.
A staple look for me in these warm months has been an off shoulder top as I mentioned in my Previous post,it’s simple,light and stylish at the same time. I have a tendency of purchasing eccentric pieces especially dresses and skirts and am only able to wear them a few times,or on occasions. since they seem to catch everyones eyes or make them go..(oh my gosh!!! But you look good in that,why don’t u wear such often?)these are the pieces that I feel make my wardrobe unique!
It’s so hard for me to make a choice on skirts mainly if they aren’t pencil and body hugging,but for this,I’ve eyed for a long time and wished it could join the other pieces that am going to exploit thoroughly 😂,I love me a good skirt and preferably a skirt that I can breath in. Imagine my excitement when I got this sky blue “front button midi skirt,Not only is it beautiful but also has pockets! What more could you ask for?! It was fun pairing my outfit today!
Simple and timeless is key!

Your feed back is very essential to me,comment and tell me what you think!
how in the world are you? I’ve seriously missed blogging so much! I couldn’t be more excited to be back,specially in an off shoulder ASOS top that I think everyone should atleast own or perhaps have a similar one.
It’s so cozy and comfortable yet I still felt beautiful and put together. If you’re plus size or know anyone that is,you definitely know how hard it is to find such tops in our size range 😏. Your going to see me wearing more of “off shoulder clothes” coz they are my favorite this season. I paired the top with high-waisted H&M ankle grazer sky blue jeans which defined my shape making me look chic. All those days I was away,flat sandles became my favorite,don’t say I didn’t tell you when they get common on the blog.
The best part of sharing my journey is connecting with you guys. I love hearing your creative input, comments, and suggestions so please keep them coming my way (: Honestly they help keep me grounded and feeling extremely motivated. To know that we’ve not only found each other, connected, but are also growing together is seriously amazing and I feel beyond grateful.

Somewhere between wearable and chic is my happy medium!
I live for new experiences, going new places(though I haven’t done that in a while),and meeting new people… And if there’s anything this year has taught me, it’s that every moment of our existence matters! No matter how short, how dark, or confusing it is every second of life matters. Keep that in mind….
This skirt has an elastic waist,it’s free and comfortable to wear. It’s one of those skirts you can wear while out on a lunch date with ur girls and don’t get uncomfortable of ur tummy poping out.
it’s been some time,huh? I know and… Well I have a pretty valid explanation for it all, I swear. So I’ve been MIA for nearly what? 3 months 😳😳😳? Wait, has it actually really been 3 months? Gosh… Time flies! But hey as you can see here, am back and most importantly going no where.
So,I have this new obsession for Caftans. I have a few caftans just for lounging purposes. When I want to feel free, it’s the closest thing to feeling naked without being naked. I just think fashion is about enjoying yourself and being comfortable in your skin and allowing you to be you.
I was drawn by the details and the color on this caftan. It’s super comfy,chic and free.
So one of the many things i love about style is that you get to make it personal. Wait, you knew that already because I’ve showed you that😛! The best part about that philosophy (and the shared belief amongst all real lovers of fashion) is that there is no one way to make a fashion statement. Perhaps I could do this little thing where i challenge you to take a fashion trend and interpret it in ur own style language. It would be fan,don’t you think?
Style tip: Since the dress has more of blue, accessorising it with More blue elements makes it simple and elegant. There is something so effortless about having just one color,it makes everything put👌🏾. And of course the ombré lip is the ultimate sophistication,it makes the lips look really big and full and fabulous. Style is effortless! #EffFashion
