How To: Transitioning Your Fall Outfits To Summer Outfits!

I wanted to do something for Fall and here it is! I picked two of my favourite colours for Fall that is grey and olive green and then transformed it into two different styles.

Fall Look 1:

See how I matched grey plaid to a work chic style or the street style chic!

Inspo 2: Athelisure trend with Olive green.

It’s that easy people! Never ditch your Fall outfits just because of the colour but you can always revamp, reuse or tnasform!

Happy Independence day people!! (In Nigeria).

I’m literally swooning right now over my 4 inches heels!! I mean it when I say  I bought it for N1000 ($2.78) while going home one night from work.

You can buy the best things on impulse (one thing I’m grateful for impulse buying) in Nigerian markets especially evening time.

I bought these brand new heels at Oshodi Oke one evening. I actually staggered there. It’s close to KWIK BET. That’s where the man places his weird shoes on the floor!

When I got there I was attracted by the price but I did not expect to see these brand new heels!! Like omggggg….i grabbed them like there isn’t going to be tomorrow! He was even pressurizing me to buy the shoes because his “customers” don’t like the colour and haven’t bought it since he came to sell. (chineke meee….)

In my mind I was stuttering (who doesn’t want a neon green heels) and the shoes are in perfect condition, quite new. You can confirm from the picture. I couldn’t believe my eyes…no I didn’t even haggle on the price. I slipped the 1k note and dashed out for good!

One thing I really appreciate impulse buying is, you get the best deals but would you always have the money and the time?

P.S. I went for another “alaroro” shoe shopping but couldn’t find the man. I will always be on the look out and if I find him again i’m getting those digits!!

#OOTD: Styling Stripes On A Retro Floral SKirt!

Styling this retro floral skirt for me was a win!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

At first, I couldn’t decide what to wear with the skirt. The first colour that popped in my head was white, i switched to black, then red till I was finally confused about my outfit choice. But then again I searched a bit further till I discovered my 3year old stripe top laying helplessly at the bottom of my box in my shrine. ..LOL (nickname my mom gave my wardrobe)Processed with VSCO with  preset

Yes, is it just only me but I tend to carefully arrange my clothes and then in a second I tumble everything upside down, side to side, middle to bottom and diagonally just to look for an appropriate outfit…(ehen naw, as per blogger, you want to match that outfit well!)

I took the stripe top and matched it with the retro skirt and voila! It made absolute sense!! I couldn’t drop it down for a second and everything was perfect!!

P.S. I got my retro skirt for N300 2years ago in my final year!21820016_289862554827155_4769317301080031232_n

There are other ways to style floral skirts too like mixing polka dots, dog tooth/houndstooth, check and sometimes gingham. The key point here is the colour! make sure that the stripes you are matching with the floral print skirt have a particular colour in common.
