Easy and Effortless way to Wear Black for Fall/Autumn

Hello everyone, my name is Nelo and I love Black! I am not fighting it anymore, I have accepted it and now that I have put on some weight, I love Black even more. I love how it has this magical powers to hide your frumps and all and make you look thinner. I have always liked black ever since I can remember, I remember my then bff in school asking me why I loved wearing black so much, I didn’t even realize that black was a cool colour in fashion and a fave of most style icons, I didn’t realize I was in good company hehe. I try sometimes to consciously wear colour and I go for white ( another colour I love with all my heart). I could wear black and white all the days of my life and be cool.

Hear Me Roar

 The worst thing that can happen to a blogger is to have their laptop pack up on them, that is currently my fate right now, the keyboard suddenly started acting crazy, you would type in A and get Z. It is so frustrating, I have sent it off to the repairer, they say water got in to it, I have no idea how that came to be. I suspect my daughter though, lol.   Anywho back to post related news, how many of you knew about the Heidi Klum Aldi collab? Did you get anything? What did you think of the collaboration? I did see a lot of leopard prints and sequins but didn’t cop any of that, I however got these boots I’m wearing here. A purchase I am not so crazy about, after just one wear, the boots have widened out looking like some cheap ass boots. I can’t remember how much I paid for them again, I think about £30? I am honestly not sure but I know it’s within that range , honestly guys, mom’s brain is a thing! I am not happy with this Boots because I know that at that price, I could get me a decent and expensive looking pair from HM or Public Desire. I digress here but I NEED a red boot ASAP. That is my Autumn absolute must have. What’s yours?

 It’s a repeat offender with this coat and that for me is the beauty of fashion and the mark of a good bargain, the ability to wear an item of clothing many times in several ways. I was sceptical about the PVC trend, I loved it but I thought it was a bit tricky, I am a grown woman and I love to dress like one , I like the way it came out here though, with the coat and Tee. What do you think of this trend for Fall? Do you love it? Or is it a pass? Let me know in the comment box below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week xx. 

Tee – HM , Skirt – Primark, Jacket- Newlook

Nailing the Oversized Men’s Blazer Trend

 The Blazer is back lovelies and I ain’t mad. I am so loving this trend, it’s so easy to style , very classic, very grown up, very bossy and so right up my alley. I have worn this lovely checkered one from Hm on an all black pant and tee, but honestly it can be worn in so many other ways, with blue denim, dressed up with heels as I have done here or dressed down with sneaks or loafers. It’s also great for a night out thrown over a sexy slip dress and when it gets colder, could be worn over a thick jumper.

I absolutely love this trend and if you are with me and looking to get yourself one , I would advise to make sure to go a size or two above your usual size, the more oversized and boxy, the better.  Feel free to browse through the men’s section and yes don’t forget the thrift store, I picked up one bomb ass one from there last week and honestly can’t wait to style it on here.

Blazer – HM here, this one here is equally gorge – HM here  , and this lovely lovely one from Asos here,

Bump Style 20 – How to Wear Black in Summer

So how do you wear black in Summer? Or are you one of those who would never be caught dead in Black in Summer? I have always been drawn to black, I didnt even realize it was a thing in fashion, I simply felt that cuter outfits came in black and I remember when a good friend called my attention to it, she told me I looked better in colors and should try wearing more colors as they bring out my natural color better, lol. After that conversation, I started paying more attention to colors and outfits , I digress though.

I also love to embrace colors in Summer but when I opt for black, I look out for breathability, I alway go for fabrics that are airy, show off some skin and preferably  short. This one which by the way was a gift from Monsoon Uk strikes the whole button, it doesn’t get you hot, the lace is so gorgeous and intricate, it comes in white too but I opted for black because can you see how big I am currently? And we all know Black is quite slimming  . So what do you guys think of the look? Continue reading Bump Style 20 – How to Wear Black in Summer

Bump Style 19 – Blue Stripes x Blue Doors

Guys remember my Pink door here, I was walking past it the other day and found they had changed the color to blue (wailing), I am sure a guy was behind this change talking about how Pink is feminine and shii. I am just glad they didn’t opt for black . Anyways, as soon as I got this dress, I knew I wanted to picture it against the new blue door, I thought it would make a good canvass for the dress.
