Think “girly” for this look.

Whites and florals? Yes please!

Hey guys. It’s been a while , school and life you know how it goes. First and foremost, the drive for creating is all about showcasing style inspiration for every girl out there . The baddie babes, The girly girls, the edgy girls, the tomboy girls,simple minimalist girls( OK not really cos I’m extra lol),classy and sophisticated style kinda girls.

If you’ve followed my style journey so far I’m sure you thought “what the hell is she wearing?” Or “ooouu I wanna try this baddie look, Or “I’ll never wear that” or “I like that but it’s not really not my style”. Don’t worry you’ll find your vibe here at some point. Have a little faith in me.

This look is about showing off my feminine side in a “me” way , quirky style and all. Floral patterns are a way to go for a girly girl look. But you know me I have to throw in a little bit of flare to it.

My style inspo

Sometimes I want to wear very feminine styles like florals, polka dots and bright pastel colors while also looking chic and modern. And at the same time I just don’t want to look too simple or too vintage-ish. This look is about creating a vibe somewhere in the middle.

To go from a super simple look to something more, the answer came in form of floral boots, a pop of colour and an alternative way of wearing a white shirt. Let me break it down.

My white button down shirt was turned the other way around to create a high neck illusion. Wearing it the regular way for this look would have looked mehhhh. And we don’t want to look mehhhh, do we?. I purposely left the cuff unbuttoned to make it look flowy.

Did you know? ... the yellow corset thingi you see is actually a skirt!. Yup, you can officially call me Mrs IMPROVISATION . I love the idea of cinching oversized clothing with large belts and sashes but for this particular look I didn’t want a regular belt . I wanted to make it look like the yellow band with zip detail was attached to my shirt.

How to:

I layered a short yellow bodycon skirt over my top and layered my floral skirt over the former... easy peasy.

My boots:

This is where it gets interesting. I’ve always wanted to try a floral on floral look. I kept the solid colors on top and the florals below. Always remember, keeping your color choices organized is really important when mixing patterns.

Like i said color scheme organization is really important so I made sure to essentially keep my colors between white yellow and pink. So this determined my jewelry choice.

This brings to end of today’s look. Hope you liked it.

last picture...i promise. Okbye

You guys it’s been a lonnnggg minute. Phew! This girl right here needed to catch her breath for a bit but I’m back... ish.

Long time no blog post; The reason

I’m graduating this year so I’ve had quite a lot to do with so little time. That being said I’ve been feeling very unserious with school every time I think of working on my blog but I’m finding a balance .

Real reason for absence

I’m lazy

I’m lazy

The thought of dressing up and a photo shoot session?....

I’m lazy

Inspiration for the look

I was going for a comfortable,vintage look with a modern twist.

Let me explain

Nothing screams a classy vintage look like an oversized skirt suit. This look is about styling one but with a little bit of edge added it.

The look

All you’ll need is

An oversized skirt suit: baggy clothes are allowed. It creates a whole vibe ,trust me.

A fitted T-shirt underneath a bralet :

layering these day is key and just because just a T-shirt alone will look boring.

Oxford shoes: we’re keeping this look retro so this was the footwear to go for.

A pair of cat eye glasses : cos something funky never hurt nobody

A bucket bag: they are back . Get the strap

Style tips

1. You could pair a double breasted with a cute lacy bralet / bodysuit , an awkward length loose mom jeans and mules

2. Same 2 piece vintage suit , a graffiti T-shirt , socks boots , a beret ,a cute bag pack and slim shades.

3. I’m going to keep the remaining tea for myself

Thank you for stopping by , buh-bye

I know you’re thinking ”chile we don’t look this happy at work”😂. But bear with me . I just love when a look I’m going for comes together...

P.s This post is for you if your work place is semi formal and allows coloured outfits

Ever since I told y’all about myself

I feel like we family and as such I can’t leave out my working class side of the family.

So if you’ve recently graduated, going for job interviews, interning or already working in an office. I’ve got you covered

• Do you ever feel like your work wardrobe is cramping the inner fashionista in you?

• Are you bored with the typical work outfit and feel like you can do more?

Well good news, there are subtle ways to spice things up while still looking office appropriate.

Think “work chic”

This is what I mean...

Typical work outfit 101

1. Button down collar shirt

2. Formal plain trouser

3. Court shoes

4. regular plain cardigan

Working “chic”

1. Flared pants , formal patterned pants or formal cullotes

2. Structure double breasted blazers,Cape-like cardigans or jackets with bell sleeves

3. Covered heeled mules

For this look all I did ways was swap the most basic office wears for something alternative while still remaining occasion appropriate.

Tip of the day

All you have to do to look chic at work is to make the conscious effort not to dress in the most predictable formal ways so don’t be afraid to accessorize, invest in mules and rock beautiful bags and blazers.

Ttyl buh-bye💋
