Spring is the perfect time to spot a clean, fresh and sleek jacket and today, this is what I bring to you. Not the blazer alone of course, with a “fab” denim. Let’s check it out.
I filmed 5 videos in this dress and because I was sitting, many of you thought I was wearing a blouse. My apologies if I got you confused. I have had to explain to the YouTube gang too that it is a dress. Today, I bring y’all the long awaited embroidery dress. And hey, the embroidery trend is big in Fashion at the moment.
Before I hit the streets of Paris in my sneakers and scarf, this was what I wore to breakfast + did quick photos…..a pair of fitted skinny denim, high neck blouse / turtle neck and my trusted long coat which I have been wearing non-stop. To finish the look, I wore some ankle boots which I first wore in this look HERE and finished the look with my mini orange bag to add a pop of colour to my blue-black ensemble. And voila, that is my outfit of the day. If I do say so myself, it is an effortlessly casual but chic look.
I bought this “bomber jacket” about 7 years ago. Yeah, you heard me right….7 years ago! On the day I got it, I got a black version too. I have worn the black version more than I have worn this one and that is why it looks almost like new. I had it stored away for some reason but decided to bring it out on this day for coffee run……
This look is a typical errand look book and the kind I spot when I do things like school run, drive the boys to places like football, basketball and any of their activities really. Another casual chic school run look book can be found HERE
Did you know your words can make or break you? Yes, the things you believe and say can make or break you? What do you mean Moji? I will tell you more, please keep reading…..
But first, Fashion! We have been having a fantastically nice and bright weather here and I can’t help it but to get out and about. I love all things free and flowing like tunics and kaftans for summer days and today’s look is not exception.
On a day like today when I want it to look like I didn’t try, I throw on a pair of my favourite denim and finish the look with a tunic style “logo maniac” denim shirt.
Talking about “logo maniacs”, did you know that wearing all things logo is a trend to try this summer? Yes, I shared that and more trends to try in my last summer trends to try. If you are a trend lover, go on and have fun with trying the logo maniac trend.
I was invited to host a “style lab” in a group recently and one of the questions I got asked was what is the difference between dressed up and dressed down? I loved the question and I answered it to the best of my ability. Today, I will share the answer I gave with you……….
Right here on the blog, minimalism, practicality, chic and sleek are a few of the words I use a lot and today’s look embodies all 4; the look is dressed down yet polished with a hint of street style.
Happy 4th of July everyone. It is my husband’s birthday today as well. I celebrate him and pray for him. He is indeed a gentle man who puts his family first before every other thing. Happy birthday to you dear hubby, God bless and keep you, amen.
For the sake of the people who don’t know what the 4th of July is, it is a federal holiday in the USA. It is a declaration of Independence day 4/7/1776 and the birth of the USA as an Independent nation.
You may have noticed if you read the blog that I do my best to share some motivation with you. Today in my Palazzo pants, I am doing just that again. I only write Motivation on Mondays to encourage someone out there who think they can never be anything or do anything successfully or they are not good enough or unemployed or broke or afraid to go afraid their dreams…..etc.
If anyone asks me what is the one thing they should have in their closet for Summer, I would say a white pair of jeans amongst so many other things like a lovely maxi dress, some kind of floral, tunics and a lovely hat etc. Talking of hats, remember I told you I was looking for a hat to buy for summer, I finally got one and would share the styling with you soon.
As I dash away in my little “Romper” and boyfriend shirt, I thought to share some travel tips with you today because I know a lot of you just like me will be travelling to one place or the other this Summer.
In my humble opinion, Summer time is that one season a lot of us in this part of the world look forward to because we get to enjoy the sun and we get a break from work to travel; well for people who love travelling.
Basics a.k.a “wardrobe essentials” (denim, basic tee / white shirt, flat pumps etc) are the pieces you can easily put together and you are good to go. They can sometimes become boring right? I feel that way sometimes, do you? To ensure my basics don’t become boring, I look for unusual ways to style my basics and today’s look is an example of what I mean.
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.
Have you ever opened up your closet to pick out what to wear and the only pieces you could 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 style is, wearing old things in new ways.
