OVERALL ::: CROPPED PALAZZO & LONG DUSTER

 

I have come to terms that regular length trousers will never be long enough on me no matter how generous they are in length. It is part of my vision to be able to create a line of super long trousers / pants collection in the future for tall women like myself. At least trousers long enough for women with long legs.

Today’s look is another example of a not long enough trousers but “men”, I had to rock it like that 🙂 But seriously, do you have length problems with trousers?

 

OCTOBER BLOGS IN REVIEW & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 
Here in Ireland, it is a bank holiday today. I believe it is the same in other parts of the world that celebrate “Halloween”. Although it is a bank holiday, someone like myself and many other online Entrepreneurs (Bloggers, Vloggers, Writers, Coaches etc) have to work. It is interesting when you live a lap top life because there is always something to do 🙂

Furthermore, even though I have to work, working today is one of those things I consider IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT! What do I mean? I will tell you that on Motivation for Monday, please stay with me.

 

HIGHLY REQUESTED ::: MY PERFECT NUDE LIPSTICK COMBINATION (Also seen on Michelle Obama)

Today’s post was inspired by Michelle Obama’s look at her final state dinner. Michelle rocked a gorgeous golden Versace dress which looked super elegant and perfect for the occasion. The dress was not just perfect, her hair and make up were also on point. She had on this gorgeous golden lip gloss and I thought wow, perfect!

So today, I bring you a highly requested “nude lip combination” I love to wear. I just had to film this one because of Mrs Obama. Thanks Michelle.

 

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. 🙂

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?

On today’s post, I bring you a quick styling on how to go from work mode to mummy mode without changing clothes. Let’s do this. How are you by the way?

 

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.

 

ASK MJ ::: WHAT DO I WEAR TO AN ALL WHITE SUMMER WEDDING?

 

I count it all joy when I open my mail and I find requests from people and from different parts of the world. It is a reminder to me of why we were called. We were called to serve. To everyone who is not serving with the gifts you have been given, you may be missing a lot in changing lives. Today on Motivation for Monday, I will share more with you why it is important to serve but first let me answer this request from a dear reader.

 

PLAYING IT SAFE ::: CUT OUT CAMI & PANT-SUIT

 

In my humble opinion, if you like / love something, no matter what the thing is, don’t change it! I live by my rule of not changing what I love and because I love white very much, I look for different ways of wearing it to make it fun, stylish and not monotonous. Today, it is all about white around here again!  Hello, if you are new to the blog, this lady loves white 🙂

BE PATIENT ::: HOW TO DRESS UP A CASUAL LOOK

 

Today, it’s all about a dressed up denim look but first of all, I need to share some good news with you. Are you ready for it?

I am happy to announce that my dear friend whom I dedicated this pregnancy look HERE to is now a brand new mum. I am actually with her in London as I write this post.  Mum and baby are fine. I am a happy and proud aunty and I am thankful for such a time as this. How are you doing yourself?

 

AUGUST

Welcome my beautiful friends to Monday and to a brand new month; the month of August!

I have a feeling this month is going to be an amazingly distinguished and a great one, I can feel it. But how? it is because as a man(woman) thinks so he(she) is. I have shared with you before to always stay positive no matter what. Now say this after me; this month is going to be a great and exalted one for me, amen! YES, we have just claimed all the goodness in the month.

 

By the way, if you check the dictionary, a few of the words used to describe August is distinguished, exalted, Magnificent, Lordly, Kingly etc. So August is Special!

 

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 🙂

 

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.

 

DENIM DAY

 

 

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.
