February 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.
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.

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!
I appreciate it when you let me know ur opinions.
Hello lovely Readers
Allow me congratulate my country Uganda for qualifying for the Afcon after 38yrs,of which am sure majority of you weren’t yet born. We hoped and prayed,they never gave up and worked harder. They made us proud,they made us shine,as the Pearl we are,of Africa. Go UGANDA CRANES!!
Now…there’s nothing quite like the glam of “layering an outfit” especially when updated with a trendy modern style. Layering is one of those trends that never fades. One of the reasons why we want to layer clothes is to show off the contrast between different colours and cuts, so there is no need to be dull and boring and wear a single colour for all your layers. Be bold, layer a white blouse with a beige midi sleeveless coat like I did or Also mix and match patterns with solids. The whole idea here is to make each of your layers clearly visible for a complete fashion statement,and you will make heads turn while you walk down the street!…Something i live for😆
Layering is worth doing well

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!
