LAST HOORAY: BLUSH PINK LIGHTWEIGHT COAT

I am so happy that Spring is officially here (now someone just needs to pass that on to mother nature) but the weather is still on the cold side :(
I am trying to enjoy it for as long as it lasts because we are on the final stretch but the warm weather cannot get here soon enough for me! 

But I decided to do one last hooray with one of my fave lightweight coat from Boohoo. Lightweight coats are a good transitional piece for Spring/Fall, and I am wearing a sleeveless turtleneck which is another one of those. I am no pro at layering but pieces like this make it very effortless. 

I styled them with my all time favorite jeans of the winter which are these ones from Rainbow. I've been thinking about trying the Good American cofounded by Khloe Kardashian, has anyone tried them? Thoughts please...



CROWNED

Hey loves! I took a trip to my native land Nigeria in January and of course I had to stock up on my traditional wear. Since dramatic sleeves are huge right now, I decided to design an asymmetric, dramatic sleeve dress (which was originally a maxi, but I took a pair of scissors to it lol).

This printed fabric is called Ankara and it is generally worn by most African countries especially West African countries. It comes in all kinds of colors and prints that you can possibly imagine and I mac currently wearing one by a company call Da-Viva and I love their designs because they have such bold colors and prints. 

The head wrap is not only a fashion statement but also a reminder to wear your crown and wear it proudly. I have found that in life, the crowns placed on you by people can be taken away but the crown placed by God is forever and can never be taken away. So wear your crown proudly, knowing that no matter what you are a queen!

WILD ONE

Hi guys! The weekend is almost here, one day to go! Hopefully nature will have mercy on us and shine some warmth down this weekend instead of cold breeze.

So, its another sheer bodysuit? Yeah I admit I just styled one here but cut me some slack will ya? I love sheer bodysuits. But you might have noticed a pattern, which is my favorite way of styling them i.e wearing something underneath lol. This time I decided on a bustier underneath this animal spotted sheer bodysuit which is hands down one of my favorite bodysuits. 

I also styled this old skirt sometime last summer here and haven't had a chance to pull it out since. Since the bodysuit is so badass, I toned it down with this faux tutu skirt and the wide gold belt for a very feminine look.

HORIZONTAL STRIPES

Recently a fellow blogger posted a bomb picture of herself slaying a horizontal striped outfit and stated that she was once trolled for wearing stripes and I said what?! In what day and age? Maybe the 1800's? If you are viewing this post right now and you have that misconception, please discard of it and I hope this post will further help to remove that misconception from your mind. I am wearing horizontal stripes and no, I do not look bigger or wider. If you are reluctant to try horizontal stripes, I think this co-ord will be a good starting point for you because it has blocks of solid color that might make it a bit easier.

When I picked up this set, Vivi said to me "Cool, I can't wait to see how you style it". And I said to her "I can't do much because it has already styled itself". Which is very true, this is one of those outfits that have done all the work for you, just a pair of heels and you will be looking well dressed. 
I on the other hand, being as extra as I tend to be, added an extra oomph with this rhinestone choker and heels.
