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.

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!

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.

The weather has been very inconsistent lately, one minute it feels like an Indian summer with some sun and then it gets extremely windy, on this particular day it was very windy! I was gifted grey over the knee high suede boots from Schuh to celebrate the Christmas season. I have been looking for a similar pair of boots that resemble the Stuart Weitzman classic knee high boots as those are way out of my budget. Schuh’s selection were the perfect alternative! I kept warm and styled the boots with a grey jumper and grey coat keeping in with the grey colour pallet theme.
I can’t believe it’s the end of 2015, another year has passed. This year has been a year of growth, experiences that are invaluable and lessons that have been difficult but I pushed through. As much as I feel like I am not where I want to be and haven’t reached my fullest potential, I am more than grateful for my current achievements with my blog, my career and my personal life. I have laughed more than I have cried, I have taken more risks than have been safe and I have leaned on God more than leaning on worldly things. There are still battles I deal with but with God anything is possible. Sometimes it is hard to be happy with where you are because you want so much more for yourself but I am learning to enjoy the moment and enjoy the journey, I hope you will too for your life!
A BIG THANK YOU to each and every one of you who have supported my blog and liked any of pictures on socials, emailed me with such positive words, it is greatly appreciated. The more I achieve I will continue to help others through advice and by any means necessary! I can’t wait to show you and launch what I am currently planning, as I have realised my talent is bigger than me and I want to do my best to share and help others!
2016 – I plan to do what I said I would do, with the guidance and blessing from the man upstairs and continue on the road of being the best version of me and living the fullest life possible of course in style!
Happy New Year guys!
