Wide Length Pants – Autumn Season

November 8, 2017

My new favourite go-to for the winter season, wide length pants. For a night out or a dinner party, I have been drawn towards a fancy trouser that is sung and cozy to tackle the wind of the winter weather.

I recently have been expanding where I shop, and I popped into H&M and checked out their trend collection. FYI – It is one of the best high street offerings in the market. It really has runway trends as high street pieces, which isn’t as known to all general customers, unless you are fashion, fashion girl (in my opinion)! I fell in love with these wide length pants as it is a solid material which holds the shape of the trousers. The warm dirty orange is the perfect autumn colourway for this season.

I paired it up with a satin top with a cut of shoulder and frill end sleeve. I love the mix and match of the two tones paired together. 

Lately, I have been so busy settling into a new job role that I have been very excited to be doing and immersing myself into that. So apologies for the delayed post! As you know I work in marketing and that is a separate journey from blogging that I enjoy. I definitely will be sharing more, but into the new year. 

For me having more than one stream of income is SO important, as we get older we should be thinking about how you want to live your life. So I focusing on setting up my streams of income using my skills and gifts to be purposeful. So as there are high and lows in the social media world, be mindful to build a life that is lucrative off of it.

Winter Colour Block – Mixing Textures and Colours Autumn 17

October 12, 2017

The afternoons are getting shorter and the evenings are getting longer, which means winter is here. I am easing my way into my winter wardrobe by mixing textures, colours. I am leaving towards comfortable looks which are still feminine, flirty and casual. As I get older my tolerance for the cold gets less and less. I can feel it in my bones more (basically I’m getting old lol).

Introducing you to my winter wardrobe

Winter Colour BlockWinter Colour Block

I brought back my pink fluffy jumper I got from H&M last winter, which I bought 2 sizes bigger, so it has that sung feel and drops on me like a hanger. I colour block this jumper with a satin finish rouge red A-line skirt, also from H&M. I love the clash of red and pink, it is a strong combination and really stands out, but also fits with the winter feel because of the clash of textures.

Adding some sass to this look I wore gold River Island heels that I have had for years that look identical to Aquazzara but are not lol. What I love about this look is, you can easily switch the heels with trainers and wear a pair of Stan Smiths and still look just as good.

Mesh Fits and Rip’s

December 1, 2016

Mesh fits and rip’s is all that it is, but it is impactful. Mixing and matching textures always results for a stylish, chic look. This is more of a cosy girl vibe that I am channelling but I like it. At the core of my style, feminine fits is home, but I always like to challenge myself to stretch myself with a new-normal.

I got these white ripped jeans from ASOSs not too long ago and I have worn them more than a doesn’t times. They are not so tight and not too baggy. Just right for the casual fit I have been looking for. I styled it with a mesh body from Wolford as it adds a sexy flare compared to just wearing general T-shirt. Of course Vans is the ultimate cosy fit footwear that works with everything so I threw them on, as I wear them most of the time.

Black and white is classic and perfect colour combo for this London winter. It is so cold, I can’t express it enough!

Random Thought – Authenticity

In the social world that we live in, it seems so easy for people to get caught up, follow suit and becomes sheep! I say this because as bloggers and influencers becoming the ‘in’ thing. People see this as easy and try to do anything to fit in and perceive the same image, lifestyle. Or even more commonly, get instant gratitude that the likes of Instagram gives people.

For me personally nothing feels more liberating that enjoying who you are and what you stand for. Not wanting to confirm and stand firm behind your beliefs, contrary to what may be popular or popping on the ‘gram’. Purpose over popularity! This is the key, in everything you do, embody and stand for purpose. That ignites authenticity and stability in that. With that being said…Please NEVER believe the hype!

The Return Of The Puffa Jacket

November 22, 2016

My favourite winter purchase is The Puffa Jacket! The perfect combinatin of padding, warm and a large fit.  The puffa jacket is an all-rounder that you will wear every day. cool and comfortable which is the vibe I have been channelling this winter.

Puffa coats is so easy to style because you don’t have to be polished with your look. I typically wear my puffa with exactly how I styled it below.  I wore leather pants which are so chic for winter, along with my leather open-toe boots from Topshop. These are really cool and chic adding a little edge when I wear them. I also bought t-shirts from Footlocker which are perfect to throw on to stye with trousers. Sometimes a logo t-shirt gives a little bit more life to an outfit, dont you think? This Adidas T-shirt is from Footlocker they have a deal on currently with 2 for £20.00! Thank me later 🙂

Ending of 2016 – Random Thoughts To Share…

I feel at peace with were 2016 has taken me. Honestly, it has not been easy at all!

It’s been challenging, hard, tough to say the least. There were times this year that I dealt with anxiety and rejection. Through this time I have built strength, knowing myself deeper and proud with what I have achieved so far in my career. The possibilities are endless! And that’s what should stick when you’re in the midst of adversity.

Now I feel I can achieve anything! Never give up guys, NEVER. Eventually you will get there.

If my thoughts resonates with you, feel free hit me up as I want to use my platform to support and share my journey with you guys and start more conversations!

Turtle Neck – Keeping warm and sexy!

November 14, 2016

Turtle neck vibes are the perfect go to for keeping warm, as the coldness is no joke in these London streets! And it got colder quicker than anyone expected this year.

This week I’m sharing a simple chic casual winter look that I wore recently. A black simple ribbed turtle neck from Mango that i got last winter. Along with these sexy, thigh-high slit culottes from Miss guided. I got these in time from my end of summer trip to New York this September, and they are very flexible to style with different looks. I know what you’re thinking? It’s cold though. And that’s my point keeping sexy and warm and testing at times! The things you do at this young age for the love of style lol.

This season I really have played with casual style looks and really enjoy being comfortable. In my last two points I have highlighted this. My everyday looks tends to be my Nike Air Force 1’s, with jeans a turtle neck and my New Zara Puffa coat.

I sometimes play with the types of tops or jumpers and make it more feminine and sexy depending on where I’m going, just like this look.

I have been really reflective for the later of the year. A lot of things haven’t worked out and a lot of things have. I guess that is life, nothing is ever really predictable. I know I just changed the subject of this style post. It’s important I always drop an aspect of substance to blogging and being a ‘fashionista’ so to speak. There is so much more to me then fashion, I’m a marketer, working in the creative industries and building a name behind the scenes. I definitely will be sharing and putting more content on here of projects. Which will be more of projects that I am working on and my business interests.

Fall Shimmer – Keeping chic and sassy during winter!

November 3, 2016

Carrying on with my comfortable style winter looks, I came across this stunning shimmer, glittery jumper dress from Zara. It is such a beautiful one piece that you can throw on and feel glam.  I did wear this out with ripped jeans and it looked very chic. For you guys I wanted to style it with velvet boots.

I don’t usually wear much glitter and shimmer dressy looks but I had to, when I saw this jumper dress. Pairing the dress with a diamond look choker, it really adds sass and chic styling to the overall look. Of course ankle boots are a huge trend this winter and I am really into chunky comfortable heels, so it was an easy decision to purchase these boots!

Fall Trends This Season is…

Keeping it simple and comfortable for the winter adding a bit of shimmer, glitz and glam can sass up any everyday outfit.

Last winter I actually put together a cool casual look here too.

I actually have a few favourite winter looks from last year, so I am going to share with you another few of my top 2015 winter style post:

Starting with Black 101, as its states an all-black casual look wearing my favourite Nike high top air forces. Thirdly an all grey look featuring Schuch knew high boots which I still wear today!

Casual Comforts

March 10, 2016

It’s still very cold in London, and I can’t go out without wrapping up! Being comfortable, cosy and warm is a necessity for me nowadays. I remember when I was in a teenager and I could just go out with cardigan and just deal with the sharp wind but now, no no no!

Jumper and jeans have been my go to as of recent, I like feeling warm, comfortable butdressing girlly and chic. This weekend I went to a new magazine launch called Signature’s magazine, a new art publication showcasing the best of Africa’s artist, check them out. I also when went on a late date night with bae and had the best fried fish ever! Yes I am a seafood girl. I was out all day and night on Saturday and this combo really worked for me. I felt, sexy and most importantly warm!

The best thing about a pair of nice jeans and classic heel is, whatever top you wear it will always look cute because you have the balance of casual and dressy all in one.
