Wait a Minute!!! Part 1

od selfie 2

The smile on my face can tell you exactly how I feel. This picture was taken right after I presented my final year thesis. Damn, the joy is overwhelming. Pictured with me is my best friend Daisy.., the excitement after 5 years of school is just beyond 🙂 .

I must tell you the thesis took 90% of my time and all I was thinking about is “thesis, thesis, thesis…..” I have so much free time now, I feel guilty when I am not working. Then out of the blue, a thought pops into my head saying, “Wait a minute…You are almost done with school,” and a smile like that paints my face all over again.

Power dressing is important. Everyone had t bring their A-game. Pictured above is my another close friend of mine Dennis-looking sharp buddy!!

I have never shared official looks on my blog but I think it’s important that you know I always opt for pearl  necklaces for an official look. Let me know what’s your go-to accessory when it comes to dressing for work or something.

To my #selfiebuddy Michael. What a day it was!! Just so you know, I am loving the afro 🙂

The top that you see me wearing is actually this dress that I has been in my closet for quite a while. I was so focused on my thesis that 3 days before my presentation I didn’t know what I was going to wear. From this experience I learnt that styling is key, you don’t have to have new items every single time to look good.

Sequins and a Short Skirt + these cool glasses!!

There are times you look into your brimful wardrobe and you get the feeling that you don’t have any clothes to wear!!!( Holla if you feel me 🙂 )

This is the feeling I had the other day when I was trying to pick out what to wear. Every time I get this feeling, I tell myself to change things a bit. The task of incorporating outfits that you have never paired before can be a little tricky-but at the end it’s always worth it; as you get to explore your personal style and in doing so- your style evolves beautifully.

I decided to pair my bold printed skirt with a tight-fitting black sequin vest. It’s more of playing with geometry shapes. When the skirt/trouser is a loose fit, I normally g for a tight fitting top or blouse and vice-versa. Please note that this is not a rule set in stone. You can always play with different outfits to your liking.

I completed the look with my black blazer with gold sequins on the shoulders. It has a nice cut and edges that matches perfectly with my sort of-bubble skirt.

I wore my favorite heels to elongate my look and the sunglasses(borrowed) just because I thought they looked good 🙂

Super Late on Tribal Print

DSCN6596Hello,

To let you in on what my week has been- I have had to do two papers this week. So it has been loads of late night reading, discussions and early runs in the morning. Yea, I started this workout/how I start my day regimen by running a kilometre or so at around 5.30am but mostly at 6.00am and 6.30am when it’s hard for me to get out of bed 🙂 . I would really love to know about your work out routines – so you can leave a comment down below

Well, that was my life this week. I however managed to dress up a little as I was “exam-free”-if that’s a word, midweek, and I thought it would be nice to share it with you wonderful people.

To be honest with you guys, I have had this dress for so long and I have never put it on-at all! Yea, I know it’s sad-considering how gorgeous it is. Bodycon tribal print is that it is an eye-catcher that you don’t really need accessories.

The only accessories I have on is my beaded bracelet-and I am good to go…oh + a good pair of striking red heels!!

That’s it guys, It’s always lovely to come here to talk to you!! Let me know how you would dress up your bodycon tribal print. I could learn a thing or two 🙂

#Mike and Daisy, thank you for taking my pics

Thanks for stopping by,

Much Love ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Stripped Maxi Dress + a little confidence

IMG_6360

I got a new post for the week. It’s all about The Striped Maxi Dress.

I bought this dress a few years back and it is always my go to when i want something pretty and simple.

This pictures were taken last year-I don’t know why I took so long to share them with you 😦

I paired it with my simple short sleeve black blazer and Masai sandals.

IMG_6367Guys!!! We were daring enough to take pics in Lifestyle. At some point one of the guards came to inform us of the “No photography policy”. Its funny how with every single photo shoot, I am more confident. I know, if I tell you I am a shy girl, you wouldn’t believe me.

COLLEGE Fashion 101

Hello, cheers to 2015!..,as we all hope for a good year filled with joy and happiness.

I have just realized that I am about to finish school – I am literally at the edge, and I’ve never shared my kind of “college fashion” with you guys.

This is college fashion 101 as I’d like to share how I use simple garments to create an edgy campus look.

I used a simple tee and my floral tiered skirt as my canvas. I then accessorized it with a brown waist belt, beaded necklace, and my khaki-coloured stacked boots.

I also had my “geek-glasses”-lack of a better name-(if you know what they are called feel free to enlighten me in the comment box below) to complete the look.

 

The floral skirt added a soft edge to the whole look.

Remember the time when everyone was obsessed with that Bon Jovi song?

Well, at times I just carry my books to class, when I don’t feel like carrying a bag. This has occurred once, 🙂

My little sister Eva came through with the pictures :)…thumbs up!

That’s it for today

Thanks for reading,

Much love ❤ ❤
