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 years...it'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.

Wedding Style: Floral Dress + clear belt

 


Wedding season is here; summer weddings, that is and one of my favorite piece to wear to weddings and bridal events is a dress. In this post, I restyled this bold floral dress previously styled here into a shorter dress with the use of rubber bands which I used to make loops around the waist then I tucked the dress over the loops and cinched a clear belt over it. 


Why go through the trouble? you might ask...Well, it's all for fun. It's so much fun when I am able to restyle pieces from my closet for different occasions. A white pair of sandals, sunglasses and red statement earrings completed the look. I hope to do more restyling from my closet henceforth. Thanks so much for reading.

Grey puffy sleeve Sweater + Blue pouch Bag

 




       Puffy sleeves are a big deal right now. You can find them on blouses, dresses, jumpsuits and even on blazers. I purchased this puffy sleeve sweater from Loft last year including the denim and I styled this look to attend a friend's surprise proposal event last spring. I completed the look with a woven, blue pouch bag, my favorite at the moment and a pair of brown cone shaped heel boots. Now that the warm weather is finally here, I'm excited to put all the sweaters away. I hope the weather is beautiful wherever you are. Thanks for reading.

Summer Essentials: Straw bucket Bag






         Bucket bags are making a resurgence in the form of straw bags this season as I have been seeing online. We all know that straw bags or raffia bags have been summer staples for years and the vibes or elevation that they bring to summer outfits cannot be underestimated. I styled a straw bucket bag with my outfit in this post here. In my opinion, this season's straw bucket bag trend is going to check all the marks and a lot more for that trendy Fashionista. Happy viewing, happy shopping.

Yellow sweater Dress + white Boots

 


       I sought out a yellow color sweater dress for a long time and was so glad when I finally found this. Styling it was super easy, yellow and white go perfectly together and this pair of boots have been in heavy rotation lately. My embellished headband completed this look. I wore this dress on Easter Sunday and I look forward to styling it again in the Fall. Thanks so much for reading.

Green cable knit sweater Dress + White Boots

 

     

         Cable knit sweaters are some of my favorite pieces for cold weather season and it's even better when they are sweater dresses. I fell in love with this mint green baloon sleeve sweater dress when I saw it first time online. The color and style is super gorgeous and the cable knit design and texture is very unique.

Wine color sweater + leather Skirt



      These pictures are old pictures I took some time ago when the pandemic was raging hence the mask accessory.  A quick look at my outfit here; I am wearing a burgundy monochrome outfit; wine color sweater, burgundy color pencil skirt and boots. Our spring in Minnesota is cold though not as cold as our winter season and sweaters and boots are still part of my wardrobe pretty much at this time. The boots are from Sole Society. and the bag is my own vintage; an old piece from my closet. Haha! 😀 Thanks for stopping by.
