CASUAL CHIC ::: HOW TO PLAY DOWN A DRESSY SHIRT

 

I knew it wasn’t going to be too long before I shared another way to spot this oversized bow detail shirt. I first styled it here a couple of weeks ago. I loved the shirt then and I still love it now and it is one piece that will be in my closet for a long time. 🙂

I am a huge fan of maximising, this is truly what style is all about. Style isn’t running to the shop every week or trying to be someone else, style is being who you are .i.e being “in touch” with you.

WORK MODE, MUMMY MODE & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

 

As a mum myself, I know how hard it can be to joggle work, family life and everything in between. Sometimes, you get back from work and then it’s time to bring Junior to football or Sarah to ballet or dancing. Does that sound familiar?

ALEXA CHUNG FOR M&S AND MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

I have followed Alexa Chung’s career for a while. She is one of those underdog in the fashion world. Alexa is a British Fashion Model, Television presenter and Contributing Editor at British Vogue. When I heard of her collaboration with M&S (Marks & Spencer), I was curious to see what she designed in collaboration with them.

As for M&S, a lot of people think of them as a not so fashion forward brand when it comes to clothing. However, this days, they are “uping” their game and this is why they now do collaboration with modern women of influence to bring modern and on trend vibe to their collection. By the way, if you look well in M&S, you will find great and fashionable items there. And they do great lingerie too.

 

How To Transition to Fall Without Buying Anything New ::: Bow Detail Shirt & Midi Skirt

 

I looked out a few days ago and it was raining and in my head I started thinking once the word “FALL” comes up in weather, it starts to rain. I may be wrong but I have also noticed that once the children go back to school, it rains everyday. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way because I sent a message to a friend of mine who also said she was thinking the same thing when she got my message. Two rights can’t be wrong right? 🙂

Well in Ireland, sometimes we experience all 4 seasons in a day; Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter. Do you think once it’s fall / Autumn, it rains everyday too? What is the weather like where you are? I am just curious to know so please share with me.

PRETTY LITTLE THINGS ::: HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT PEPLUM BLOUSE

 

Any time I see fabrics that remind me of home, I jump for joy for the future of fashion. Although this jacquard peplum blouse is little, it does it for me. And what do I mean by jump for joy? It is because more and more Designers and Fashion labels are embracing African Fabrics and prints.

My blouse today is made from what we call Jacquard in Africa. The fabric is lush in detail and pretty in print. I am from Nigeria by the way, Nigeria is in West Africa 🙂
