#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.

Pictures: Me Lately!

Tgif! I really don’t have much to say today but let the pictures speak a 1000 words. February started out really tough but came through in the end. It’s month of March and I’m being “all shades of broke”.

I made a list of everything I needed in life and prioritised but hey, a girl can never have enough. So, less words today so I can go on ahead and figure this “broke-cation”kinda thing..LOL

Hello Jasmine, you look cool!

I have been having some style ideas lately but because of budget, I haven’t been able to post some of the ideas I have put together. My current situation about my style idea is incomplete. It’s either I have a slip-on dress and no white sneakers or I have a denim skirt with no white tee or fedora.

 

Btw, Ever since I stumbled across Jasmine Salahuddin on Instagram (here) I felt a kind of connection, we seem to have almost a similar style a bit of cool and retro. Jasmine is a fashion blogger and a student but she definitely has got some sense of style going!

I gathered some of my fave looks from her page. Take a look!14488284_729834873839129_2128939993555533824_n13704373_1552773445031469_1149959267_n14659362_341421306222015_2420707889455824896_n-115259059_168768280258567_4477571017455173632_n

I’m definitely putting together some of my style ideas and hopefully get more posts done. So help me God!

 

Retro: Channeling my Inner Retro Style

The retro style has been around for quite a while and I’m loving every bit of it! From retro clear glasses, vintage tops (you would be seeing more of it), weird and quirky statement pieces. NYFW has been a n eye opener to different kinds of style that exist. Some are really quirky, something like a blast from the past but they have a modern twist to make you love them.
