Spring Double Denim

April 10, 2017

Double Denim in spring is the perfect outfit to commence the sunny days. Without doing too much too soon! As I’m delving into my spring/summer wardrobe and moving away from jumpers. Denim is a great transitional look to go for when having a busy day out with friends and family. I love this combo from Next SS17 collection. The two tone denim is so pretty and seasonal have fun with this summer!

Keeping up or staying True to you? Let’s discuss!

A conversation that me and my friends have been having as of lately has been about style. Today so many trends are popping up, as fast fashion is getting faster, it’s like playing catch-up. But then don’t you think sometimes that you start to lose your sense of personal style! To be honest I think that’s what happened to me at the end of 2016. I was trying looks that I actually wouldn’t wear and it was difficult to put certain looks together.  Now I am taking it back to basics and working with what naturally is my core style and inspirational sources and iconic fashion brands that I love!

For example, Farfetch have a style guide segment on their site which talks about various different style habits and trends that refers back to adapting to your personal style. A big one for me that I have got inspiration from is ‘What To Wear With White Jeans. I LOVE wearing white. It is clean, classic and goes so well with everything. A style guide on this is a great go to help for me to style my white jeans with various looks.

Fashion is always evolving and you may not have the time or money to be trying to keep up with. This is where style comes in and using what you have to re-create amazing looks that embodies what your style is. Not what’s just hot for now!

I speak to myself here and you too, let’s bring it back to basics and build out style, so that when we look back. We will be telling our kids, look child I was so hot in my twenties, I know about fashion take a look here! That is going to be such a funny time In many years to come!

Blooming!

October 5, 2016

Lately I have been juggling a few projects at a time and worrying so much about the execution, money and all these factors that you have no control over after some piont. Sometimes you may feel like that even as a blogger making sure the look your sharing is perfect, when in reality its not always like that and that really is the story about this style shoot too. But I’m so over it, (I should sound more articulate) but honestly sometimes we all need a reality check, when I first put this outfit together I was like errrr its all wrong but when I got to shooting, I felt comfortable in my skin. I felt great and it really showed when i saw the final pictures, being comfortable in your skin results for a  overall amazing finish, and that goes for many different things in life! Even if it may just be jeans, a bra top and heels!

If you’re going to love, love free

If you’re going to grow, grow free

If your going to heal, heal free

Less restrictions on your bloomings!

The End Of Summer Season

September 29, 2016

Hey Guys, I’m still sharing with you guys my New York Fashion Week style shots I took while enjoying the end of summer in the states. Just like that another summer has gone by 🙁 I always enjoy summer fashion you can feel sexy letting your glow shineeeee! It’s the season where colour blocking looks bomb and showing more skin is more fashionable 9within reason) and you wear outfits that are more freeing!

I shot some pieces with my friend and talented artist and photographer Ike, on the rooftop of our apartment in Williamsburg, embracing the ambiance of New York. How beautiful is this city?

Manhattan Living

September 21, 2016

The yearly trip to New York was a world wind of networking, fashion, friends and having a good time. For those who follow me on Instagram and on Snap Chat for 2 weeks I was in the US for a number of fun festivities. First I headed to Philadelphia for two days for Made in America Festival, which consisted of seeing the likes of Rihanna, Chance the Rapper, Cold Play and many more of my favourite music artists. Then I headed back to New York for Fashion Week events, parties and of course to catch-up with old and new friends.

New York is such a fast pace city, with so much going for young creatives and most importantly the opportunity to collaborate. When I was out there I really saw young, smart women come together and work on projects and just bring one another in on opportunities which was so empowering to witness. It is something I want to embrace here in the UK, we have amazing black girls killing it within their creative area’s of expertise and it is important that we stand together and create amazing moments. Especially when the opportunities are not being handed to us, we have to stand and create them together!

I got to shoot some of my New York style looks starting with these with the dope visual creator Pierre!

Everyday Getup

August 24, 2016

This is basically my everyday get up and go attire when I have 5 minutes to figure out what I am going to wear. To be honest that is exactly what happened when I was getting ready to shoot this and I just grabbed what I wore a few days before to basically show you LOL!

Evolving personal style is such a close personal experience and I hate that sometimes as a blogger you may feel a little pressured to look like you’re on a runway living fabulous. When in reality life is not like that, sometimes it’s all about a pair of jeans, a cute T and heels and then you run out the door to conquer the day.

Body Confidence With Boohoo

June 22, 2016

It’s officially summer in the UK, which means longer days and shorter nights and pending holidays creeping up in the calendar. It’s that time of year where you shop for your favourite bikinis for your holiday and embrace showing a little more skin than usual. I know with this comes a wrath confidence to love your body and all of your flaws so you can enjoy the summer season!

My summer beach curent item is this Boohoo Lace Beach Dress, which is a cover up to throw on over a bikini or swimsuit. I love the intricate lace detail, which is one my favourite aspects of a dress. I style the Boho inspired Beach Dress with high waisted shorts and a white bikini top. I wanted show how stylish and versatile the Beach Dress is when you may not just be lounging by the beach and instead chilling, as it very comfortable and wearable as a day to day casual sheer lace dress.

I would love to know what makes you feel confident. It’s important to find out for yourself and own it, so whether you are in a tiny bikini or fully covered swimsuit what shines most is your presence, character and personality!

If you love this as much as I do, you can easily get it here

Keeping It Blush

May 26, 2016

Keeping things blush and trying to keep spring vibes around, I wore a light pink shirt a few weeks ago and styled it with a classic pair of white, wide leg trousers.  Tailored cuts are forever a staple piece in one’s wardrobe! I couldn’t tell you how many times I have worn these trousers and in so many ways! Outfits like this remind me why it is so key to collect timeless stylish pieces and store them away; and this right here, is one of them!

2 years ago I made it a rule to ONLY shop for classic pieces that I could have for a long time and when I look at this outfit it reminds why! Simple, classic and forever chic. Style is supposed to be easy for every day and fun for a great occasion but most importantly creating everlasting fashion moments. I will definitely be picking up my classic piece mantra and let you know what else I purchase!
