Florals for summer or spring aren’t exactly groundbreaking as Miranda Priestly sarcastically pointed out in Devil wears Prada. I absolutely have to see that film again . Meryl Strip was an absolute delight, rumour has it she was modelled after Anna Wintour who has since debunked that fallacy, she claims she is nothing like her and I don’t care really, what I do care about though is this gorgeous gorgeous floral summer dress I have on here. It’s from HM. I love the colour, the floral pattern, the tie details on the strap, the ruched detail on the neckline and best of all, the way it flowsss, this is the absolute barbecue/drinks with friends summer dress for moms and single babes alike. If you couldn’t be bothered about ducking your tummy in and all that jazz you are gonna love this dress plus the quality on it is amazing! HM has a knack for creating top quality pieces like this that could almost pass for a designer piece, actually I wouldn’t be surprised if this dress turns out to be a designer knockoff. Lol.
Another way I would Style this dress is with a head band, it would be so Dolce and Gabbana. I would also wear with trainers and bum bag. I have been loving the weather lately, I would be legit depressed when it ends and the dreary winter comes through.
Anyhoo, I am making the most of the sun, currently out with the fam, we are off to East London to go eat some Indian cuisine. Have a lovely weekend and see y’all on Thursday xx.

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.

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.

The World Cup is on right now and I fear I have caught the bug. I am not really into football but you see as a Nigerian, you can’t help but get into when the Super Eagles are playing. Football is the one thing that unleashes our madness, our creativity, that unifies us. When The Nigerian team scores, no one cares which tribe the player is from, we are all united in our enthusiasm and celebration. It’s a Nigerian goal, not a Yoruba goal, not an Igbo or Hausa goal, it’s a Nigerian goal. When we merry also, we hug and clasp one another regardless of tribe and differences. It’s beautiful to watch.
And of course not forgetting the fashion, Nigerians are very fashionable, one of the most fashionable people in the world (my opinion) and this year we saw fashion and sport merge together to create what has been the termed the most beautiful jersey in the World Cup, don’t know if this statement is official so please don’t quote me , lol. What I do know however is that the jersey is currently sold out, there are a lot of shoots and pictures on the internet of people sporting the jersey and looking hella cute. I didn’t manage to snag one but like I said I have caught the World Cup fever and this is my way of cheering my boys on in style. We are playing today against Argentina and I want to wish Team Super Eagles all the best.
What do you guys think of my look? Sis you did that! Or hmmm?
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 here. Continue reading How to Wear – Shorts Suit for Summer
How cute is this denim shirt dress? I promise I have got knickers/shorts underneath as you would see if you scrolled further down. I got the shirt in a size 14 so that its oversized and a bit longer too. The material is floaty which makes it perfect for this season. Let me tell you a little about this denim dress, it was thrifted ( insert big grin). As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it and I just knew I was going to wear it with a big scarf, sunglasses and sandals. I went for the tan sandals because I love tan and denim. The bag was the icing on this look. I had just finished from picking up my daughter from school and as I like to do, I popped into the thrift store to see what they got, I promise you guys I wasn’t planning on buying nothing, I just wanted to window shop, I love to window shop, its one my top past time. So here I was casually checking out what they got when my sight rested on this beauty, the price was gooood, I knew I had to have it, resolve gone with the winds. I have wanted a bucket basket bag but didn’t want to splurge. As you all know it’s a serious trend right now but I especially love this one because of the stripes, it’s definitely unique, I am going to wear the heck out of it this season. I really loved this look and I hope you all love it too and it inspires you this week. Continue reading Denim Dress
Yasss move over little black dress, the new bae is here and she is the little yellow/mustard dress. If you didn’t know well now you know, I mean it’s been making moves here and there but after Amal Clooney showed up to the royal wedding in that Mustard yellow Stella McCartney number, the rest is history. This is officially the color of the season, it suits every skin tone and shade, it flatters everyone, its bold without being brash you know I mean? I have just been stocking up on them lately, This one from Boohoo is a treat, issa snack. I wore it to a barbecue the other day and I didnt have to worry about sucking in and all that jazz and the cinched waist meant that it still gave some curves yall. It really is the best outfit for when you want to be cute and still eat all the food at the party. Thank me later. Continue reading Move Over LBD, Hello Little Yellow Dress
We have been blessed with a very early summer here and I couldn’t be happier, this week for example, they said we were gonna have lots of rain and thunderstorm but the sun has been coming through and doing her thing although it rained cats and dogs on Tuesday and me and the girls were stuck in it for some good minutes. I don’t mind the rain when I am indoor, warm and cosy, a cup of tea and netflix to go, okay not netflix, more like youtube to go, I love watching youtube videos especially vlogs, hauls, makeup videos, routines a whole lot haha.
It’s also half term break here which is probably why I had the time to take this outfit photo yesterday and put them up today. I bought this Kimono recently from Boohoo, check out my haul video below and OMG! You guys, I am absolutely in love with it, it’s very lightweight and floaty and just the perfect throw on over tank tops and dresses, something I very much intend to live in this summer . I especially love the idea of this long floaty Kimono on denim cutoff and a tank top, I think its super stylish, very effortlessly chic which is my vibe always. Whats your summer go to outfit?

Get ahead of the fashion pack and grab yourself a shorts pants suit right now, this trend is going to be big for summer, it’s very flattering on all sizes and shapes, pair with a trainer, sandals or brogues for that IT fashion girl look. I would suggest going for linen fabrics, they are so floaty and flattering, go for colors too, it is summer after all, what better time to rock your colors than now. The good thing about this trend is how easy it is to style, this is the thing I love about co-ords actually, they are so throw on and go which is a good vibe for me any day and time as a hella busy mom of two. I also love that it can be broken up, worn separately and you have a whole new outfit. I have linked some affordable options below. Do check em out.

Fashion blogging has definitely gone beyond just wearing a dress and taking pics, there is a lot that goes into it now, while the clothe is still important, you now have to worry about picture quality, getting a professional camera, cutesy location, breath taking poses, just so much. The competition out there is insane and it’s hard not to get sunk in and feel like you ain’t good enough. I love fashion and love blogging but I am a bloody broke ass right now. I shop cheap and wear them well. The styling isn’t a problem for me. I wish I could afford a photographer or have a blogger mate, so we could meet up in cool locations and take some bomb ass photos, that would be sooo cool. This one was taken in my backyard by myself and I know its just not good enough. I imagine this dress in a lovely location, maybe a cool bar, or a florist shop with all the colors bursting through. Essentially an amazing background, great lightning, these are the kind of content I want to create but cant afford to right now so I make do with these ones in the mean time. If you are reading this post and you live in South East London and need a blogger mate to meet up and shoot outfits in cool locations, lets hook up, give me a shout via dm – Insta (@nelOsuji) or email.
