WORK-LIFE BALANCE :::: SHIFT DRESS & SNEAKERS

 

Finding a work-life balance as a parent especially as a mum is one of the things I put on the top of my priorities.  I work hard just like so many other amazing working women and mums from all around the world and believe me, I am not afraid to play hard and harder if I have to.

 

On a play day, I look for an outfit that embodies style, fun and playfulness. And today’s look is just it.

 

OLDIE BUT GOODIE ::: FADED KHAKI & ROSE DETAIL TEE

 

 

Today, I shopped my entire look from my closet! Have you ever opened up your closet to pick out what to wear and the only pieces you reach for are your favourite old things? My look today was styled with all things oldie but goodie; I mean from the faded khaki pants to the basic tee to the shoes and bag and to the necklace. Every thing is old but in today’s look, I made them all new; that is what it means to shop from your own wardrobe.

 

EMBRACE YOUR SEASON ::: ANKARA MAXI & TIE NECK BLOUSE

 

 

I do miss home because of the very many times I could wear the colourful Ankara print and the ever so sunny weather. Once the weather warms up around here, I look for every reason to wear the print and today’s look is no exception.

 

In case you are wondering where is home, I was born and raised in Lagos-Nigeria where the sun is like the second skin. I now live in Ireland with my husband and kids.

STANDING IN BASICS ::: Denim, Organza Blouse & Cut Out Booties

 

The calmness I felt after my quiet time early this the morning was what drew me to this “statement shirt”. The purity of the shirt feels exactly like what I felt inside.

Inside of me, I felt a sense of calm! It was the Calmness in my heart that led me beside the still water(s) at this location for photos. The location was quiet, peaceful and calm just like I felt inside.

 

MAKE LEMONADE ::: COLOURFUL BOW NECK TUBE DRESS

 

For today’s look, I decided to make all things bright, bold and beautiful in this colourful bow neck tube dress. After all, spring is all about colours. This look is simply a case of if life throws you a lemon, just make lemonade.  The weather as you can see in the photos was dark but the dress was colourful enough to make everything bright and beautiful.

 

TREND TO TRY ::: THE CROPPED DENIM / PANTS

 

Finding the perfect pants / trousers for almost every woman is a challenge.  Ask me what do I mean?

 

See, I am a “tall girl” and for me, trousers are always a challenge because my legs from my natural waist line to my feet are about 46 inches. No I am not a giant but that is the story of my life. My legs are longer than my trunk. I like the proportion though, I am not complaining.

 

The trouser story is the same for every woman or almost every woman. When it comes to trousers / pants, is either they are too long or too short or too wide or too “something”………..

 

There is however something that now binds us all together, it is the crop trousers or pants.

 

MAXIMISING BASICS ::: ONE BLAZER, FIVE WAYS

 

 

When it comes to basics, blazers are about the most important one in my humble opinion. Not only are they perfect for when you attend an interview, they are also the perfect style piece to take a look from “drag” to “fab”. In simple terms, the blazer adds polish and sophistication to any look.

Add a blazer to a dressed down look and you will look chic and well put together instantly.

 

Today, I present to you one blazer styled in five different ways. I hope you find the looks inspiring. Now, let’s get started ………
