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
ME WHEN I THOUGHT I COULD PULL OFF MY BROTHER’S RETRO TOP AND MY BOY-SHORTS
WELL, DID I PULL ITOFF THOUGH?
ME, WHEN I DIDN’T PUT UP THIS GINGHAM DRESS SHIRT POST, PLS DON’T SHADE ME..LOL
ME, WHEN I REALISED I HAD LOW KEY ADDed MORE TO THE BUTT-CHEEK SQUAD..LOL!
SO, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO AND HOW HAS THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2017 BEEN FOR YOU?
There are lots of pyjamas trends out there but I’m more comfortable with the SLIP-ON velvet slip-on and satin slip-on. The trick to wearing a slip on is to understand the concept. For instance, your slip on strap has to be tiny, the slip on dress could be A-line or body con (but it should fit).
You must understand that it has to be light-weight because you are layering it over another outfit. The slip on is best worn with a fitted tee, a dramatic sheer top or an over-sized tee depending on the way the slip fits on your body.
For a 90s look, your tee must be white, layer the slip-on on a slim-fit jean, nice eye accessory and a wavy hair cut. It’s okay to freestyle and make this look yours!
I rocked mine ona sheer turtle neck top and a burgundy fitted slip on. Check out my look!
If you know me too well or you have been following my blog for some time now , you should know that I love Street Style, Retros and very minimal with my style! If you didn’t know, I’d say “drop that attitude honey”.
Street style is very experimental and whatever you do, “denim it up”. It may be a bit weird to those who don’t know (hahaha, of course) but I love it just because it’s a form of self-expression.It’s more like a personality thing!
Anyways, I looked up Manny Okenye and I’m just in love with his street style skills. Manny is a brand ambassador, model, and a street style enthusiast and I must endorse his skills! He most definitely is taking street style with the turban game of course to another level. Check out his looks!

The SLAY Festival is just days away! It’s an empowerment event for women to come meet other women in business, technology, fashion etc to network, empower each other. The SLAY festival is an acronym for She Leads Africa but everyone calls it SLAY FESTIVAL.
It will be the first in Nigeria and it’s going to be big, I won the ticket to this event to meet, network with women from other sectors, to listen to their stories and learn, Thanks to The Blogger Point AGENCY for giving me the opportunity to win the tickets.
I don’t know yet what my outfit is going to look like on the d-day but i’m sure that I’d slay! By the way I put up some graphics together to inspire anyone out here going for any festival, I think outfits for the festival should be comfortable (heels will not be needed) because you will be doing lots of talking, networking, penning down stuff and buying stuff as well.
Here are my outfit ideas for the SLAY FESTIVAL!
Outfit 1: For the androgynous chic. A bit of feminity, comfort and boldness. I opted for the monochrome look!
Outfit 2: For the edginess and comfort at the event. Best for networking when the heat is high!
Different outfits matched for your comfortability at the festival. The style is simple, classic and comfortable!
Pastels are soft colours, basically connotes the beginning of summer or announcing the summer season. Pastels are light weighted- I mean they are friendly to the eyes when looked upon. The colours are; dusty blue, dusty lilac, dusty orange, mint, pale pink etc.
How I styled my denim shirt (faded) and a pastel pink pleat skirt.
I basically wanted a cool chic look by combining these two colours simply because the skirt is so cute! The colour is absolutely soft and the pleats were well defined.
I did a bit of DIY and cut off the pleat (to a midi sized skirt) to give it this chic look. I decided to complete things up by rocking a matching jelly sandals to the look and accessorized with my layered choker.
Be fearless in matching two different pastel colours and remember to keep things minimal because less is more!
SO ladies, explore your creativity with matching pastels!
Dry seasons are characterized by dusty dry winds, haze, fallen leaves, hot weather, a bit cold, flu, flaky or crackly skin etc. But I found out a few cheat codes for staying cozy and warmed up during this season. They are;
I kinda had this type of look just imagine it with the pop socks!
Have a cup of coffee!: Coffees are a great way to start the morning and a cup of coffee would get you warmed up and ready to take on the day!
Dry weather essentials broken down to these staples;
Moisturizers: To lock in moisture on the skin and preventing it from cracking or flaking and of course, softens the skin.
Lip balm/Lip gloss: Prevents dry and flaky lips
Body oil: For that body glow!
Water: lots and lots of water for freshness.
Something Velvet and Denim: Velvet is the best fabric ( for me) this dry season because, it’s soft on the skin, it’s light and produces a little heat and just like cotton, it’s absorbent.
See how i rocked my knee-length panty hose/ pop socks to work. I simply folded it into a half socks kinda look to give it this cool vibe!
If this cheat code was helpful pls share, someone who might need this tip might be following you and feel free to add up any item you feel would be needed so that others may learn from it.
Street style has always fascinated me in many ways. I am one who is very artsy and all but these hand painted denims bring so much inspiration each time I see them. Here in Nigeria, a young designer (Dricky Stickman via Instagram@dricky_) debuted his hand painted denim at the Lagos Fashion Design Week in collaboration with the Fruche Official Brand.
I love every creative message on each denim. In fact, it brought back some childhood memories and so much fun inspirations running through my head.When it comes to street style, these hand painted denims have their street credibility.

The bardot top/dress trend is so here to stay. The best thing about it is the comfort and classy way it makes one look and feel. I got my second serious brand collaboration with an upcoming women’s brand Laitan Offical.
She made my bardot dress in just 6hrs. I love the bell sleeves of the dress which absolutely brings out the class in the dress. I styled my African print bardot dress with a nude jelly flat sandals and my holiday gift ( I got it myself), a sunnies from Haute Signature brand. Here’s my top look!
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!
I’m definitely putting together some of my style ideas and hopefully get more posts done. So help me God!
