HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY + 3 WAYS TO TRANSITION TO SPRING.

To all my Irish friends living in different parts of the world, Happy early St. Patrick’s day to you. I believe it is going to be an amazing and colourful event as always here in Ireland and especially in Dublin (capital city of Ireland) where all the magic happens.

Not sure what St. Patrick’s day is? Please check HERE. I shared all you need to know about Paddy’s day in that post.ย 

 

CASUAL CHIC IN BLUE-BLACK + HOW TO GET INSTANT LONG LEGS

 

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. ย And voila, that is my outfit of the day. If I do say so myself, it is an effortlessly casual but chic look.

 

SS18 TRENDS | PREMIER VISION PARIS + SHIRT DRESS & SNEAKERS (Casual Chic)

 

I attended the Premier Vision last Thursday, it was the main reason WHY I went to Paris. The Premier Vision is WHERE all TREND FORECASTS start for every season. In this case, it was all about the trend forecast for Spring / Summer 2018. I know you would say 2018, but that is far? Yes, trend forecast starts at least two seasons ahead so Designers can get their collections ready for you and I.

BLUE VELVET & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

On Saturday, I spoke at an Enterprise & Careers day in Dublin. There were other speakers from different works of life; 2 Doctors, an amazing lady from Google, a Psychiatrist, a Forensic Accountant and an Amazing Irish Youth Pastor who also happens to be an Author. It was an awesome event and I thoroughly enjoyed been a part of it.

Speaking at this event made me realise one thing and that thing, I will share with you today on Motivation for Monday………

 

THE GOOD DENIM ::: 3 WAYS TO STYLE ONE DENIM

 

One of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe, is trending right now because of her new denim line called the “Good American”. However, after reading the reviews of the denims, I concluded they are good BUT the price is ridiculously high like her fans says. The price of the denim starts at $197. Expensive right?

You may not be able to buy the Good American denim or jeans because they are so expensive but you can wear your high street ones stylishly. This is exactly what I am going to be sharing with you in this post.

Since it is Autumn, all my looks today are Autumn perfect and ones you can take from day to night. Now let’s have a look at them…….

 

TWO SEASONS IN STYLE + MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

When you think of Autumn, you think dull colours like black, navy or even purple or warm tone shades of floral like brown or orange. When you think of summer on the other hand, you think delicate, sheer and breathable fabrics. In today’s post, I decided to mix pieces from two seasons……

On Motivation for Monday, I will share with you one principal that will make you get everything you need in life.

 

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

BE MINDFUL OF YOUR WORD ::: PRINT ON PRINT

 

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.

 

BLUSHING IN MAXI

 

In our home, anniversaries, birthdays and all memorable occasions are very precious to us so we like to celebrate in our own way. On every 26th of June since we became man and wife, my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary and this year was no exception because as usual; we celebrated in our own way which is usually a meal out if we can, exchange gifts and retire back home. Sometimes we think we are too homely for our own liking but we love it.

 

DRESS DOWN DAY :::: SHIRT DRESS & LACE UP FLATS

 

 

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.
