How to style: Multi color Sweater (Part One)



     I have a newfound love for colorful sweaters and cardigans, and it's been fun styling them virtually and in person. Colorful sweaters are very versatile when it comes to styling; just pick a color from the graphic print on the sweater for the bottom piece which can be a pair of shorts, pants, dress or skirt depending on the occasion and you are good to go. check back for the restyling of this cute cardigan and check a previous styling of a similar sweater here.

       The holiday season is officially here, and we can say that sparkle season has already began. Metallic, sequin or embellished shoes is part of holiday outfit usually and it is even more so this season. However, the focus has shifted slightly from metallic or sparkly pumps to sparkly boots and booties. And the style can vary from dress boots to western boots to even chelsea boots. Whatever sparkly shoe wear you choose to wear this season, just have fun with it. Thanks so much for reading.

The number one skirt i am wearing right now


        Texture, texture, texture...that is what fall fashion is all about; talk about knits and leather, cashmere and faux fur and then denim. However, when we talk about denim this season, we are not talking about the pants. Denim this season is all about the denim skirt and I am not mad about it! 😂

Puffy sleeve smocked lavender Dress + heels


        Puffy sleeves or bubble sleeves dress is here to stay; this trend is going to be around for a long time even past this season's fall and winter. I purchased this lavender maxi dress from Lulus two summers ago and wore it on multiple occasions this past summer. In my opinion, it is the perfect dress to celebrate the end of summer and to welcome the new season. I did my favorite monochrome styling all the way with lavender pieces and completed the look with my old thrifted purple bag. Thank you so much for reading and I wish you all of God's blessings in the new month.

Neon Pantsuit + green heels

          Pantsuits have always been my favorite style of clothing because they are easy to style and equally very versatile. You can wear a pantsuit to just about any event these days and the pieces in the set can be restyled with other items in our closet. I purchased this green set from JCPenney about three years ago and was just waiting for the right time or season to wear it and now green and neon is trending. 

I styled my pantsuit with a green floral blouse and green heels. The green straw bag is an old thrifted piece. I look forward to restyling this suit in so many ways in the future. If you need a tip on where to shop for affordable suits and tailoring pieces, check out Asos and JCPenney. Thanks for reading.

Fall Fashion Inspiration: Bold color Hues

        Fall is finally here, and I am so excited to get a break from the summer heat and get into fall fashion. This post is a "pre-fall" or transitional outfit inspiration. It is not cold enough to put on boots so this is an outfit that can be styled with sandals or mules.

One of the trend this fall is "deep saturated colors" and "color blocking." This multi color sweater paired with blue cobalt blue skirt can be worn to any event with a switch up of the accessories. For work, you can switch up the open sandals for a pair of pumps or even a pair of boots if you so choose. Happy viewing, happy styling 😀

Fall Essentials: Wish List

        My favorite season or time of the year is almost here; Fall or Autumn, however you call it where you live 😀 Presently, I already have all that I need for this beautiful, fashionable season (not the exact items on this list). However, I like to make this wish list at the beginning of every season because they are fun to put together and they can help anyone who needs some help picking up some new items that they do not have yet. First on my list is a beautiful, minimal looking bracelet and I love this beautiful hinge bracelet from J. Crew; It will look great paired with fall outfits.

Button-up shirt + Shorts


        Button-up shirts are a huge trend this summer and color blocking is the most common styling option I have seen with this piece. If you look hard enough in your closet, I am sure you will find a couple of button-up shirts in there because it is a piece, we have all been wearing probably not to the extent we are wearing them this summer.

mustard color Dress + blue straw bag


        Hi Friends 😀 I hope everyone is doing great. I'm restyling this mustard dress that I wore in this post here. Last time, I styled it for fall and this time, I styled it for summer just by changing out the accessories. I cinched my waist with a clear belt and added blue color accessories for some color blocking style and by the way, color blocking is back on trend.

From splurge to save: Chloe logo slide Sandals Dupe


        The Chloe slide logo Sandals has been a great summer trendy piece for a couple of years now; the stylish elegance and chicness that the sandals bring to a regular summer outfit or vacation outfit cannot be overemphasized. I have always wanted a pair but did not think that there was a good cost per wear in it for me. I'll like to inform you now that there is a beautiful pair of dupes now that is selling fast at the retailers.

Black smocked dress + brown straw bag


        Wishing everyone joy, happiness and health this new month of August 💯 The year is gradually getting to the end. Can we talk about the heat wave though! I hope everyone of you is keeping cool. My outfit today is not the best to beat the heat because of the color; black colors absorb heat as we know. However, the fabric and style of the dress is great for keeping cool while still staying stylish in this hot summer weather.

How to style casual outfit this summer: Green blazer + Denim shorts


        This summer has been very hot so far; the heat wave is what I am talking about; I am not talking about hot girl summer vibes 😆 My summer outfits at this time include, denim shorts, white tank tops and white tees because light colored fabrics do well in keeping off the heat. And then there is the blazer; a cotton or linen blazer is a must-have even on a hot summer day.

Summer Essentials: Denim Skirt + button-down Shirt


        Denim is an essential in my closet any season and denim skirt is even more so especially in the summertime. This season, the button-down shirt has a "bread and butter" relationship with denim with great styling options; you either tuck it in all the way, do the half tuck or the hem ties.

10 years on the Blog! Happy Anniversary to me!!

         Ten's ten years here on the blog! Unbelievable but so, so true 😀 My actual anniversary was in March. So, it's technically 10 years and counting. I must say though that my blog has been in private setting since Spring of 2020. Yes, when the whole world shut down, I shut down my little space on the internet too because I just wasn't feeling it. The desire to blog just diminished.

July 4th Outfit Inspiration: Straw bag + Espadrilles


           July 4th celebration involves barbeques and picnics and time spent on the beach or just outdoors and usually in holiday themed outfit. These collages here provide last minute outfit ideas if you are still on the fence on what to put together. They are blue and white outfits sans the red. 

You can add the red color piece to the collage by switching out accessories. For example, you can attach a red scarf to the straw bag instead of the blue scarf or you could add a pair of red earrings. A little bit of red would keep the whole outfit classy and on theme rather than wearing too much red and looking like a tomatoe and of course if that is how you choose to dress up for the holiday, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Happy viewing, happy styling.

Summer Floral Dress + Straw Bag

              Another floral dress on the blog today; I have been wearing a lot of them lately and that is mostly because I wore mostly solids all through past winter and I feel like I need to take a break. The last time I wore florals in the winter or cold season, I blogged about it here. Now back to this maxi dress I purchased from Boohoo a couple of years ago and have worn a couple of times and about two times already this summer.

The print, color and style of this maxi dress is beautiful, and the quality of the fabric is great compared to a couple of pieces I have bought from Boohoo before which had very low quality and had to be returned. I styled the dress with a pair of tassel earrings for some statement effect and completed the look with my trusted rattan clutch and a white belt to cinch the waist, plus a pair of heels. Floral dresses and rattan or straw bags are like bread and butter; they go well together. Thanks so much for reading. I wish you all of God's blessings in the new month 💯

How to elevate a floral dress: Statement earrings + Statement Clutch


      My summer style includes lots of dresses which are usually easy to wear and easy to style. In order to elevate my dresses, I try to accessorize with colorful accessories, and I did that in this outfit by wearing blue color statement earrings from J Crew and a blue color woven pouch. The red square toed sandals, similar here are my go-to sandals this season and my red floral dress is an old purchase from Eshakti. Thanks so much for stopping by here.
