Easily Recognizable In Red. Chic and Bold Look for a weekend

 I’ve been dressing mono-chromatically all my life even before knowing the meaning of the word. This is a style I have held onto for a long time, that now it’s safe to say it’s here to stay.

I also tend to think am not a bold dresser color wise but my wardrobe disagrees (shy face). Red has always been my go to bold color, I also got some inspo  from (toofierce1), this girl’s Instagram gives me life.  

 Since this coat is already major, I needed the rest of my outfit to be subtle. I wore my white T.shirt to keep the focus on the red.  I wore a pair of sock boots,which are my favorite pair right now, these ladies do not go unnoticed everywhere I go.  Not forgetting to mention that I have been seeing a lot of red shoes with models which for some reason makes me feel like I’m doing something right.

To keep the red theme going I wore a red suede chain cross body bag and summed up my look with clear hexagon sunglasses. This is a chic and bold look for a weekend.

Effortlessly Stylish

SXGE9760Have you guys been keeping warm? Its been wet and cold for a couple of days now, and this season by far is my best because i get to use my favorite pieces in the closet. However, how do you look effortlessly stylish during this weather?In a world where fashion options are endless, it can be easy to get overwhelmed when deciding what to wear. My closet is a mixture of patterns, colors, textures, and trends—which can be pretty daunting everyday when am looking for what to wear. The little secret here is to wear not more than 3 colors. Not only does this tip help make you look effortlessly chic, it also helps narrow down your options when you’re picking out outfits in a rush. White doesn’t have to necessarily count as one of your colors. And if you choose to wear clothes that are patterned,pairing them with pieces that have same hues will give an effortlessly stylish feel.

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.

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!
