How I wear – Slip Dress For Fall

If you love your slip dresses and not ready to let them go yet , wondering how you can rock them still fo fall then you are welcome. I actually got mine recently. I thrifted them for £4 (insert cheesy grin here, I am so proud of myself). To make if fall appropriate, I have simply popped on an oversized coat (my hubby’s actually), men’s coat make for the best oversized fit IMO. I finished the look with a thigh high boot as you can see the slip on it is quite risque and since I didn’t want to pop on tights yet, I figured an OTK boots will do just fine. What do you guys think? I have so many ways in mind to style this slip dress, you can layer it over a thing high neck, layer an oversized jumper on it, throw on a long coat or cardigan on it. The ways are endless really and oh so stylish too.

Red x Wine

Not exactly groundbreaking but red and wine actually go together very well hehe. The both colors are really fiery so I toned it down with a nude OTK boots. What do you think? My corduroy shorts and red top are both from @ primark. Glasses are from Ebay, boots are justfabuk, bag is thrifted. Continue reading Red x Wine

Styling Cycling Shorts

Hi everyone, who missed me? Yasss I am back with cycling shorts, I love this cycle shorts trend I cant even fit to lie. Thanks to Kim and Kanye, this trend is now so mainstream and everyone and their mama including those who swear Kim have no business winning influencer of the year awards are wearing, Its so easy to dress up and dress down depending on the occasion. Its so effortlessly chic. I love it best worn with oversized jacket or blazer though. This boohoo blazer is the dream though. I absolutely love it. Its perfect throw on over mini dresses/ skirts/ shorts. I love the oversized fit. I have switched up the accessories a bit, same outfit but different accessories, let me know which styling was your fave fam.

So guys I have just being so busy with life I haven’t been able to keep up with the blog and I apologize. I have a lot of outfit pictures you know but the problem is editing and uploading to the blog. Even as I type this right now, I am practically struggling to keep awake, lol. You can however keep with the styling posts on my Instagram – They appear on there far way earlier than they appear on the blog so you can follow me on there – Nel Osuji  Continue reading Styling Cycling Shorts

SUITS FOR THE WIN

I should rephrase my caption from suits for the win to Primark suits for the win. Guys this bombastic sexy AF, got me looking like bad ass chic co-ord set is from Primark yall. The pant cost  £20 and the jacket cost £25 so not exactly cheap cheap as per Primark’s pricing but babes I still think its hella affordable. The quality on this is so good, you can tell though from the way it sleeps on my body, its good cotton material plus its not just your regular black and white checked print, this one has a lemon line run through it which sort of brightened the material especially for dark skinned girls like me. I love this suit end OF! Its part of their new season AW 18 collection so if you head to your local store, you should be able to lay your hands on this beauty. Continue reading SUITS FOR THE WIN

WILD REBEL

I won’t exactly call myself a wild one, a rebel definitely, I have always done me, I am not easily influenced, I have my own mind, I use my brain alot and can always see through a farce . I am a little naive though, the obvious things that eludes my consciousness but trust me when I catch on, its byee, I have zero time for BS. This is probable why I don’t have much friends, I can’t stand it  when friendships begin to seem like work and competition, I have so much on my plate already, I always did even when I was single. Alright guys so that was a little bit of intro into my personality now lets talk about my jumpsuit.

Animal prints especially leopard and snake prints are a trend this season, all the high street shops are filled with them and I have spotted quite a few of my fave bloggers spotting the trend. I haven’t got a leopard or snake print anything in my wardrobe , I have no idea why and even though I have had my eye on the trend for awhile ,  I didn’t find any piece that would make me take the plunge until I walked into Newlook recently and saw this jumpsuit. I knew I had to get it immediately, they didn’t have it in my current size (size 14, closes eyes, still lugging around some baby fat guys),  but you know what? I couldn’t care less, they had it in a size 12 and size 16. I hate it when jumpsuits are too tight so I sized up and went for the 16 and I can’t say I am mad at the fit, I loved the loose fit, it came with a belt to cinch it at the waist for some shape/curve. As always now that I am into this trend, I have dived in, hook line and sinker, as you can see I have styled it with another new purchase, this utterly gorgeous leopard print pair of sandals from Boohoo. I also picked up a snake print shirt and leopard print skirt, I can’t wait to style and share with you guys.

PS – I want to say a big thank you to you all for reading my blog and checking out my style, for your comments on my blog and on my other social media outlets, I really appreciate them and they mean the world to me. I blog because I love it and to see you lot checking for me just makes me even happier and appreciated. Have a lovely weekend fam and please do me a favour, if you liked the post , share! Thanks xx.

IMPERFECT!

This picture imperfect as it is with the rumpled skirt and my unshaved armpits (covers face) reminds me of life and how much we hold ourselves back , how much we judge ourselves harshly , upholding ourselves to such standards that we will rather not try at all. We come up with ideas in our head and straight away we come up with counter ideas, with things that we convince ourselves have to be in place before we can get to work on our ideas, before we can share them with the world. I can’t tell you guys how many times I have been guilty of this, I didn’t realize it was a thing even until a fellow youtuber discussed this on one of her vlogs, she called  it “aesthetics”, she talked about how the aesthetics of things could stop us from doing, how we get so wrapped up in the aesthetics we delay or never deliver the plan. Don’t get me wrong guys, I am equally here for the aesthetics, what I am trying to say however is this, do not let the need for the perfect aesthetics stop you from going on with your plans, start first and then take it from there, build on the aesthetics as you go on.

CARPE DIEM!

Carpe diem, seize the day is the word that’s running through my mind as I edit and upload this pictures. The weather today has been all shades of messy, its been raining all day, very windy and so cold unlike the last couple of weeks with all its perfect and beautiful sunshine. I am so glad we indulged in it, we went out as often as we could, the children didn’t like the heat, they mumbled every now and then but me, I loved it, I gloried in the sun, the way it scorched my skin, turned my already dark skin even darker,  I embraced the heat, I wore all the colors and whites and sheers I could wear. I loved and cherished every day with the sunshine because I knew how unpredictable british summer can be.

This pictures were taken last saturday, the sun was blaring down hard, the hubs and I decided to take the children to East London for some good old sight seeing, I love the graffitti coated walls of East London, the buzz, the artsy vibe, the boho feels about it. We ended up at Brick Lane, that place is a whole vibe on its own, lots of stylish people out and about, uncountable vintage stores, quirky stores, street music and indian restaurants, we stopped at one of the restaurants and had ourselves the most sumptuous and delicious meal.   I rekindled my love affair with samosa and had so much nan bread with stew (I forget what they call their mildly hit stew with lamb meat ). I always go for lamb meat when I dine out, no point eating chicken out when I eat that almost every other day at home.

We ate to our fill, indulged in more sightseeing, went through Spitalfield market , took the bus to London Bridge where caught our train home. It was such a beautiful day even more beautiful than my lovely colourful boohoo floral skirt. The skirt is so lightweight. I obviously have a thing for the colour Yellow or Mustard as the case may be. I went all out and styled it with my red Zara top I had almost forgotten I had but rediscovered during my last wardrobe clear out. I filmed it on my channel, do it check it out on my youtube here.

Sunshine, Melanin and a Maxi White Dress

Oh hey, look who is back wearing white again, meee, lol. I don’t know but there’s something about white that totally gets me, maybe its the way it makes my melanin pop? Or the way it reflects and bounces off the sun. We are currently experiencing heatwave in the UK here, the weather has been so blazing hot and I have been loving it. I know some people are moaning about it but honestly I don’t want it to end. I love the sun, it makes my heart sing. But then again, I visited a friend the other day in South Croydon and I honestly couldn’t believe how hot and humid his home was so I can totally understand if this person bitches about this weather, it was honestly unbearable, I couldn’t imagine lasting a day in that house in this weather.

Its been a minute – Styling Co – Ords

Hey guys, its been a minute I came on here , I have been swamped with life, I am sure I must have mentioned it in the past but just incase I didnt, I am currently running a two year diploma programme in Childcare and I am just about to  finish my first year so loads of assignments to wrap up, coupled with the children and a home to run, its been manic so I had to take a break here. I am still not done but I have submitted parts and hopefully will be done with the remnants by wednesday. I got a breather and thought I popped in to let yall know Im still here, still breathing, still styling just havent had the time to post as often as I used to.

Hope you are all good, staying safe and not entering any random man’s car, lol. I happened on this thread on twitter where a man was foul mouthing a young lady for not entering his car when he stopped to offer her a ride on his way to work. According to him, he innocently offered her a ride and she arrogantly turned him down thinking he was interested in her. The arrogance of that tweet in this age of kidnappers and what have you? Of all the reasons she could have turned down his offer, safety of course being paramount all his tiny ego could think of was that she thought he was interested in her? The worst part of this thread was the stupid senseless comments that ensued. Man I just can’t! Guys I have only just breezed in jare. I will see y’all soon. Please manage this outfit post I shot a while ago. I took the pictures at home, the lighting wasn’t so great but the co-ord set is gorgeous, got them from newlook.com.  Continue reading Its been a minute – Styling Co – Ords

How to Wear – Shorts Suit for Summer

A good short suits is definitely a necessity in your summer wardrobe this season. This trend is strong and not going anywhere soon and guess what I am loving it. If you love this trend but don’t want to buy new ones, you can definitely mix and match like I have done here. I also think think that the trick to pulling off this trend without suffocating in the heat is to go for breezy and lightweight fabric like linen. I would also suggest opting for bright pastel colours or white, I love whites in the summer.

The shorts and blazer I am wearing here are separates, they are both from Primark, the blazer comes with matching trousers, the linen shorts was bought separately but I thought they would go real well together, loved the extra factor the striped linen blazer gave the whole look, you could opt for flat sandals, mules, slides, pumps, whatever footwear will go so well with this look, its one of those you could either dress up or dress down depending on your choice of accessories. Are you feeling this look? P.S – I have a post on the Shorts suit trend hereContinue reading How to Wear – Shorts Suit for Summer
