All black and plaid shirt








Hello, showcasing one of my recent "go-to" outfits in this post today; a top, denim and a shirt. I wore this outfit for an appointment a while back sans the high heels which I switched out for a pair of metallic flats. This sparkly metallic pumps from Asos was previously blogged about here. The plaid shirt was added on to the black outfit to add some print and color because I never really put it on; just left it tied at the waist.  It was a cool "layering outfit" for a cold day.

How are you doing? I hope you are doing great. It has warmed up a great deal in my neck of the woods and the time has come to get the layers  off.

Straw hats are such a huge trend this summer and they come in beautiful shapes and sizes. The most common kind is the regular beach hat which can be plain or embellished with pom-poms, tassels or graphics. Forget the time when the straw hat was only meant for the beach; this summer, you are going to see them about anywhere and styled with about any outfit. Call them what you may; straw hats, floppy hats, day hat, sun hat, boater hat,

Orange blazer and graphic tee







Okay, another graphic tee casual look here; this time paired with an orange color blazer which is not a common color in my opinion. I have a couple of orange color blazers and look forward to styling them in more fun ways in the fall. I paired my blazer with my dark blue denim trousers and low heel sandals for a very laid back look. The graphics on my tee says; "tres chic;" which is a French word for "cute" I presume. I got the tee from

Cobalt blue lace dress






So, I attended a friend's Mom's 60th birthday party  a few weeks ago and wore this blue jcrew lace dress. I love the cobalt blue color of and the ruffles at the hem. I just love lace dresses because they can are so versatile. They can be worn to weddings, showers and can be styled as tops. I purchased the dress in a deep purple color too and blogged about it here The red belt was added for a pop of color and I previously styled this dress as a blouse over a long red midi skirt for color-block styling effect somewhere on the blog.


The birthday party had a dress code which was optional;  a "uniform" head-wrap that is a West African cultural, traditional attire. The particular head piece I am wearing here on my dreadlocs is referred to as "Aso-oke." It is a heavy fabric that is usually hand woven and dyed in

Summer trend: Straw bag















So, you must have started seeing them everywhere; the summer "it-bags" aka straw bags. There is the very popular ark bag from Cult Gaia which looks picture perfect on blogs and on Instagram. I do not own this bag yet but I did create some sets on how I would style the ark  bag if I had one in addition to the regular straw bag which before now was just reserved exclusively for the beach.


 I would style the ark bag with a pair of fancy sunglasses and a romper and a pair of mules to go on a picnic or summer cook-out or barbecue. I would also style it with an-off-the shoulder dress which come to think of it, it's just like "peanut butter

Double Polka dots











Happy Monday Friends; I hope you all had a great weekend. As usual, I spent mine with family because after God, family is everything to me. Then, I spent a little bit of time on the blog and the polyvore app creating sets after sets. The polyvore app can be so addictive!. Now unto this post; I found this old pictures in my archive and realized that I had not blogged it; so here it goes...
                                        


I styled this look around this polka dots pumps and on a whim, decided to put on my polka dots blouse with my red jacket to complement the shoes which is Sophia Webster by the way. I am usually not into shoe name brands;

Denim top and floral Skirt






                                                  



 Did someone say bohemian? Yeah, that is what I thought when I put this outfit together. I was in a rush to go to my friend's house for a meet-up and I was not in the mood for wearing denim pants plus the weather has started to warm up and I figured it was time to get out the skirts.

All white and plaid Casuals










Hi Friends 😁  So, the weather has warmed up a bit and the time has come to spend more time outdoors. I love to go on walks in the evenings with my family at the park and sometimes, I just sit and read a book while the kids play. This casual outfit here; a tank top, denim and flats is one of my go to outfits for such casual outings. Most of the time, I would have a shirt or kimono at hand just in case the weather turns a little cold or

Purple African Prints Dress





                                                                                 



Hi everyone; I hope you are having a great week. Mine has been busy as usual but I'm glad I'm able to get the time off every now and then to attend to my hobbies which includes this blog. So, I'm going to make this post as short as possible. I know I say this all the time...haha! 😊 Okay, I have had this African print dress for years and I am glad that it still fits. I purchased it for a friend's sister's wedding as "Asoebi," an African cultural tradition where friends and /or family members buy the same fabric and make outfits (different styles or similar) to celebrate events like bridal shows, weddings,

Casual Work Style: Stripped shirt + Denim









Happy Monday friends; I hope your week is off to a good start. I'm going to make this post very short. I'm wearing a stripped button down shirt over grey color denim for a casual work day. Hey! I know it is Monday and we are supposed to be all dressed up and ready for business on the first day of the work week but you know, not every one works in a formal work environment.


So, if your work wear is casual, it is okay to spice things up by showing up on Monday with a little dressed up look. The stripped button down shirt over dark denim; tucked in or let

Pink blazer and pink sandals







                                                                                                                                     

Happy Friday friends. I hope the week has been great. I'm sharing this casual look I wore sometime ago to commemorate breast cancer. I even had on pink lipstick which I usually do not wear but it was for a good cause so I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone. I'm wearing a pink blazer

which I have had for years and probably might be one of my thrifted ones; I do not remember 😊



I paired the pink blazer with a graphic tee that has the inscription "PRAY" on it and definitely

White Pant suit and floral top









So, this is another pantsuit look that I wore to church a few days ago. I do love pant suits a lot and would be wearing more of them in the future. This suit I am wearing here are actually separates and it is the way I usually like to wear my suits. I purchased the blazer a long time back from Banana Republic and the cropped white pants are from Jcrew. The floral top underneath

Blue neck-tie chambray top







Happy Monday friends; this is just a quick post here to show how I would do color blocking for work wear. Blue and grey colors are the colors I combined in this outfit. The chambray tie-neck blouse was purchased from LOFT last summer and the grey pant suit was purchased from Macys a long time ago.
