Cold shoulders?

It takes a level of self love, of dedication and determination to live your greatest life. So, look within. Look at every area of your life and ask yourself these questions: Am I on course? Am I growing mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Anything that is blocking that, anything that is preventing you from living your greatest life, make the tough decision to let it go.

My style is usually ‘casual’ and dressed down, but I like to infuse a bit of me to give it some spice and make it not come off as dull regardless. There’s always something about taking an otherwise basic outfit and putting the pieces together so well that it comes off as stylish.

I’ve had this hot pink off shoulder for quite a while now, I wore it a few days ago with these skinny jeans and completed the look with these sandals I bought recently. I like how these sandals added a lil’ extra something to this look.

”Do your thing. Do it unapologetically. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances, and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing”

Flared pants are one fashion items that I’m really loving and can’t wait to have in every color. If your style tilts more to the street style end then you’ll realize how much of a life saver they can be.

IMG_20180807_153626-01.jpeg
I am currently obsessed with these red stripped pants that I recently got.
It actually comes as a set with a kimono but I decided not to go with the top  and put it aside for another day. What I love most about two-piece outfits is being able to wear them as separates.

IMG_20180807_153623-01.jpeg

I kept the look simple by pairing these flared pants with a lace top,  a pair of sandals and accessorized with burgundy tassel earrings.

How would your wear flared pants?

I must say I’m a big fan of reinventing outfits. Up your layering game by wearing a spaghetti over a tee for a cool street style vibe. This is a great street style combo that you can pull off anywhere. It’s really simple to get away with, too.

IMG_20180720_141651-02.jpeg

A tip if you try this layered tank over T shirt look would be you wear a tight T-shirt! wear pants that are more loose fitting if you wear a more tight top as I did. Another tip: wear pants that are more loose fitted when you’re wearing a more tight top.

Grecian vibes

Hello fashion enthusiasts? How’s the going?

IMG_20180628_073701-01.jpeg

IMG_20180628_073657-01.jpeg

If you know me or you’ve been reading my blogs then by know you’ve already realized my love for knee length outfits. I came across this maxi dress a while ago and I was totally sold not by just the length but also by the fact that it also has double slits on the sides.

IMG_20180628_073544-01.jpeg

When I first saw it my mind took me to those Greek Ancient times. I combined this outfit still with the images of the Grecian era and that’s why I went with the Gladiator sandals and for put my hair in a Halo braid.

IMG_20180628_073544-01.jpeg

The most important tip to nail this look is to have in mind that simplicity is key. So, do not go overboard.

That’s all for today fashion enthusiasts. Do enjoy your weekend.

As usual thank you for stopping by.

Howdy my country people, weekend bells are ringing, who’s ready to stay? Well, I know I am!

IMG_20180719_143941-01.jpeg

If you’re an avid reader of my blog then you know that I love me some all black outfits and whenever I’m in a limbo on what to wear I usually go for an all black combo but I always ensure to add a lil bit of this and that to it.

IMG_20180719_143907-01.jpeg

This time round it was no different as I decided to finish the look with a burgundy turban and burgundy tassel earrings. Whenever pulling an all black look it’s good to add a statement piece to complete the look be it shoes, jewellery, outerwear or a bag.

Monochrome matters

IMG_20180710_134615-01.jpeg

IMG_20180710_134552-01.jpeg

The word “monochromatic” breaks down into two pieces “mono” meaning single and “chromatic” meaning color. So a monochromatic outfit would consist of one color, however this doesn’t mean that you would only wear solid black or solid red from head to toe. No, the joy of going with a monochromatic color combo is that it will work with virtually any color you choose. So there is no reason for you not to delve into this style, because there are bound to be certain colors that look flattering on you which will only be enhanced where pairing multiples of the same color together in one outfit.

IMG_20180710_134627-01.jpeg

IMG_20180710_134552-01.jpeg

Remember balance when combining pieces of the same color. This is a rule for every outfit, not just monochromatic ones. You don’t want want the one color to overwhelm you.

IMG_20180710_134558-01.jpeg

IMG_20180710_134618-01.jpeg

If you’re new to monochromatic outfits and not sure what color to begin with, start with dark neutrals such as black, navy, gray and brown. If you are feeling brave enough, you can also try richer colors like I did.
I hope this post will be helpful in assisting you understand what monochromatic is and how it can be applied to an outfit.

IMG_20180710_134629-01.jpeg

Here’s an example of how I wore this monochromatic style. I broke down the red with a camel trench coat and a pair of gold boyfriend shoes.

If there is a pattern that I really enjoy rocking would be the polka dot. It’s no surprise that I was totally sold when I stumbled upon this pretty polka dot quite a while back. I love the cut out details mimicking an off shoulder, the ruffles, the print and the fact that it is cropped. I decided to wear it with my high waist denim jeans since I did not want much body showing.

When in doubt, always wear black!

IMG_20180627_164759-01.jpeg

IMG_20180627_164425-01.jpeg

Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real.

IMG_20180627_164441-01.jpeg

If you’ve been following my blog then you definitely know that I’m a sucker for an all black outfit. What I love most about black is that it is authoritative, powerful, evokes strong emotions and too much black can feel overwhelming. Black represents power, sophistication, elegance, formality, mystery and the unknown.

IMG_20180627_164547-01.jpeg

IMG_20180627_164531-01.jpeg

I paired my all time favorite pair of culottes with a black lace top, a yellow beaded neck piece and topped it off with a pair of sandals.

I love denim pants, these are my weekend go to outfits. What I love about them is that they can be worn with just any top, can be dressed up or down.

If you’re an avid reader of my blog or know me personally then you know I’m all about comfort and I tend to go for loose fitting outfits.

IMG_20180607_072807-01.jpeg

I recently went shopping and these pants caught my eyes, I have been a fan of wrap trousers for a while but never owned any till I came across this pair. What I ended loving most was the wrap detail, the slouchy fit then the print.I also love that they’re breezy making it ideal to wear on weekends or even at the beach.
