The perfect grey dress to wear this Fall





Hello Friends 😁 do you love fall fashion? what about fall colors; all the greys, burgundy, orange, teal and earth tones? Although it is okay to wear prints during the fall season, I must say the solid colors or monochrome looks are just so perfect for fall. Grey is one of my favorite colors to wear this season and that is one reason amongst others while I picked this eshakti dress to wear

Out of the box style: Blue gingham Skirt






                                      

I have no idea what I was thinking when I came up with the title of this post. All I know is that I'm talking about the skirt as being something different from the regular. As we know, "gingham prints" has been trending for a while but we will have to admit that the classic white and black gingham prints is the most common, This is why I was delighted to find this cobalt blue gingham prints at Target. It sold out pretty fast too. The only con about the skirt is that the fabric is really, really light. I wish the fabric was a little bit more durable and thick then, it would just be perfect, I'm aware that this color is common in pajamas and I even saw pillows online in this dark blue color but hey! it is gingham; the fabric is supposed to be table cloth for picnic tables anyway

Red Sweat shirt + Red trouser = LOVE

 
  
 
 
 
How is everyone doing? 'just a quick post here. I know we are all trying to get our thanksgiving turkey ready 😆 What is the outfit you would wear at this time of the year to run errands as you shop for the holidays? If you have been following my casual style on the blog then you would know by now that for me, casual style means a graphic tee or in this case graphic sweatshirt. I got this in this red color and also in black last summer and it is supposed to be an off-the-shoulder sweat shirt but I got it in a smaller size so as to get a different fit. I paired the sweat shirt with my red wide leg pants for a monochrome look. I must say here that I did not go shopping with four-inch heels boots. I wore flats to go shopping and just wore this boots for the photo shoot. Haha! full disclaimer...😜 I love

Brown tweed skirt + geen sweater





Hello, happy Monday. It is brown tweed A-line skirt and sweater for work wear Monday today. The weather is cold but not "heavy-jacket" cold so, I could get away with just the heavy fabric sweater and tweed skirt. Tweed, especially heavy tweed like the one this skirt is made of is a "cold-weather' fabric and it would really be odd for anyone to wear a skirt of this fabric in the

Restyling my favorite green dress






Hi everyone, happy Sunday 😁 It's such a beautiful day today because we are enjoying very gorgeous weather here in the twin cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) and I had a very awesome time in church. Usually, at this time of the year, there would be tons of snow around and it would be sub zero temperatures. Presently, it is cold but not that bad.This outfit is what I wore to church today. I restyled my green eshakti dress by layering a black sparkly/metallic turtleneck sweater over it with a statement neck piece and "scrunchy" over the knee boots.  This method of restyling your dress as a skirt is well

The trendy fabric of the Season





It is smooth, it is rich, it looks creamy, it is velor, it is velvet. However, you want to describe this fabric or however you want to style it, you would definitely find one in your budget because it is the trendy fabric of the season. Velvet has been around for ages and has been going in and out of trend for a long time. This season, you can find a lot of velvet pleated skirts; a style that has been trending since last summer, now revamped in this trendy

Work Style: Plaid blazer + red Pants





Hi everyone, just a quick post here; I'm wearing one of my plaid blazers; you really have to squint to really see the plaid print on this particular blazer because the plaid print is not as bold as the current trending plaid. This is one of my thrifted collection of blazers from over the years. Thrifting is a hobby I engage in every once in a while and as a result, I have so many blazers in several colors and patterns, dry cleaned and ready to be styled in my closet. This is why I say you do not have to spend tons on money in achieving a great style. A blazer is a basic that can be paired with most basics in our closet; dresses, denim, skirts.... For this look, I paired a pair of red color pants with this plaid blazer and a white tee and tan pumps completed the look.



My focus is not on this outfit though. I am thinking of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone x release last month and I'm eagerly waiting to have mine. I have had this iPhone 6 for a while and it's not doing it's best function anymore. By the way, All of the pictures on this blog for the past three years are iPhone 6 pictures taken by my young kids and though

I love the fashion and the moderate weather temperature at this time of the year. As we all know, sweaters are also very suitable for this temperature. My styling tip for styling fall sweaters? Just stock up on very unusual colors  and you will stand out from the bunch. The typical fall colors for this season, are; orange, burgundy, grey, brown, teal

Shoe Lovin' - Fall themed Pump








I "looveee" pumps! Pumps are just the best thing ever to happen to women in my opinion when it comes to Fashion. I do love sandals, mules and slides too but my love for pumps is deep! 😇 This is why I put up this post "Shoe Loving" every once in a while to showcase any new affordable pump or style that caught my eye in the season. I try to modify this post every now and then to include sandals and mules and I would continue to include more styles in the future.


Having said that, I saw this beautiful pair  of pumps recently on line and I just fell in love with the contrasting colors that pays a huge homage to the Fall season. It definitely looks like a dupe of thhigher end Gianvito Rossi Pumps here and though I haven't

Velvet blazer + Floral Pumps






Happy Monday everyone; I hope the new week is going great. I'm just going to do a quick post on what I wore to Church yesterday; this burgundy color velvet blazer paired with black tie-neck blouse and black denim trouser. Yeah, this pants are really denim and very, very comfy and I like them a lot because they can pass for dress pants. The blazer does have a lot of fashion roles to play in this outfit. First of all, it adds a pop of color to the outfit, secondly

White sweater + Grey Pants

 
 
 
 
 
The old Fashion rule says "do not wear white color clothing after Memorial day holiday" but no one adheres to that anymore. You can wear white whenever you want even in the snow. While it has not snowed yet in my city, it certainly has been cold and all my sweaters are out but the heavy, long coats are still hanging pretty in the closet; not time for those yet. So, I wore this outfit a few days ago; white cowl neck sweater over grey

How to style: Plaid Skirts for work.



                                                               Plaid Skirt
                                        Styling inspiration...

                                                              




So, while plaid blazers have been trending for a while now, I am thinking of plaid skirts and have been on the hunt for one. The plaid skirts I have seen so far online always look more like gingham prints than plaid and so I decided to include one in this styling post. The first look above with the blue plaid skirt is a summery look because it was paired with a white sleeveless blouse and a pair of chic Pumps. The second set below is styled for Fall because of the darker colors and the chic sock boots. The secret or tip for styling plaid skirts is to keep every other clothing item like the top, blouse and accessories simple. Happy styling.
