How to nail the floral trend for ss 18

Pair up

Thinking of how to wear floral without looking comical? I spotted this look on vogue.com and fell in love immediately, I am already in spring mode in my head even though the temps have dropped like crazy here in London, what can I say, maybe if I wish harder, the universe will listen and give me back the sun, ya ya I know the sun will come back eventually, I just need it back sooner than later.

Alright babes, back to this look, first off, I love the fact that the floral colours are dark because it instantly

1. makes you look slimmer

2. Makes it less overbearing to pull off.

3. Love the mix of pink, it softens and lends a feminine touch to the whole look

The styling with a plain white tee ties the whole look together, it keeps it simple, daytime, playful, you could also swap the white tee for black, green, pink or any of the colours on the print and finally, note that this is a co-ord, a suit actually and we all know suits can be very serious and proper, love the styling with the pink trainers, it made it casual, fun and girly, perfect for day-to-day running around and bossing up. Of Course you could swap the pink for white and still look as chic. What do you think of this trend? Snatched or Shake off?

Consistency is KEY

Hi everyone, I feel like the world’s worst fashion blogger right now, my  views have plummeted and I know its all my fault. Consistency is really the key to nailing this blogging thing you know, forget everything you have read, it doesn’t matter how fabulous your style is, if you are not consistent, your views go down.

Aint nobody got time to be checking for you if you are not checking for yourself. It’s that simple, I have had this look sitting there for a while but have just been too lazy/busy to post it. I think Instagram is also to blame for the slow posts you know, these days, once the pic is taken, one is quick to post one or two on Insta and then get too lazy to post it on the blog but I am going to try and change and hopefully I get you all to come back. I am going to challenge myself to post once a day for  seven days, starting today actually. I swear this is so on the spot. I literally came up with this idea right now. Gosh am I crazy or what? But guess? I am going to see it through. So yeah lets do this. I have so many post Ideas I have been sleeping on hopefully this challenge gets me to sit up and DO.

Now how have you all been? Wore this outfit two weeks ago when the weather was so hot and good, this week we have gone back to Winter, its so cold right now, I am literally depressed. I can’t even understand this crazy weather. Anyhoo we still going to get up and get shit done. Have a love week fam and don’t forget you can do anything you set your hearts on, you are the boss!

Is Self Love The New Synonym For Obesity?

According to a recent report, one in four British adult is obese, this is definitely alarming. What may be the cause of this, one is forced to wonder, at least I am. I have also noticed that this year more than ever, self-love is quite a thing but I fear that as with things when they trend, they get abused and I have started to see that happening already.

Double Denim girl

Double denim aka Canadian suit is one of those styles that will never go out of style, its a classic, you can dress it up or down, sex it up or make it preppy. Its suits all ages – both young and old, can be adapted in variety of ways. I recently got this skirt from Primark, I have a video on my recent primark haul here but you know what I am going to do a primark haul post too for those of you who do not have the patience or the data to watch videos.

For spring, its still a bit chilly here, I styled the skirt with a tank and an oversized denim jacket, my hubby’s jacket actually, seriously the easiest and best way to get the perfect oversized jacket is to raid the men’s section, the quality is usually better too. I am still about that cinched waist life as you may have seen from my latest posts here so I grabbed this big ass belt  I am wearing for the first time since I bought it last year.

Another reason I love denim so much is its non discriminatory style, this banger goes with everything but for this look I have opted tanned boots and finished it off with this lil cute glasses I got off ebay. I hope you guys love the look, I apologize for the silence on the blog, I have been swamped with school work and mum life but its the holiday now and I hope to do better. Happy Easter holiday fam, see you all soonest xx. Continue reading Double Denim girl

As Classic as a Polkadot

Polka dots are one of those styles that will always be trendy, it never goes out of style, season after season, its a classic. As usual, I was casually browsing/window shopping at HM when I spotted this dress, I knew I had to get it, it was also discounted, I got it for half the price. I think the discount was the tipping point, it was originally £35 but I ended up paying £17.50 for it, YAASSS! I am such a bargain head I swear. Continue reading As Classic as a Polkadot

How to Style Dress over Pant

Before I talk about styling dress over pant, its women’s week  this week and I want to shout out and big up all the women out here today bossing it, setting their own trail and blazing it in spite of and against all the odds. It’s a man’s world, it doesn’t matter how you spin it. I am super thankful for the women who stood up and challenged status quo, who refused to conform, who sacrificed and fought so we can enjoy the privileges we   enjoy today. I am thankful for the every day woman, working her ass off, hustling , making ends meet, you all inspire me. Continue reading How to Style Dress over Pant

Street Style

Its fashion week right now, New York, Milan and London has come and gone and right now the buzz is at Paris. I haven’t been catching up with this year’s fashion week scene unfortunately, I have just been so busy lately. I have caught some glimpse here and there on Instagram though. I hope to catch up when I can.

I didn’t get to attend any but this outfit right here reminds me of street style fashion. It’s something that I would definitely go for if I was to attend, its showy without being peacocky, its trendy but classic. The beret lends it its trendy air and the trench keeps it classic.
