Black and White

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

Hey guys,

How was your weekend ? I’m glad I caught up on hours of lost sleep. 


Black and white outfits are a favorite staple, and they work pretty much for every occasion. They’re distinct colours, yet they seem like a match made in heaven. 

I wore one of my favorite fish tail skirts, paired with this white round neck blouse which belongs to my mum. I added this gold necklace and bracelet to complete the look, alongside my kente clutch and neon mules. 

With black and white, a great way to add more depth is to play with different textures. You can mix different fabrics like ruffles, pleats, silk. Just like I did with this loose fitting tissue top and polyester skirt. 

With black and white, your outfit could get boring, or you might just want a pop of colour. What’s great about white and black is that almost any colour can go with it. You can a add a bright red clutch to your look or neon heels like I did. This instantly brightens your look.

With black and white pieces , you might want to wear them to suit your body type. Let’s say you have a lean top and a heavier bottom, then a white top and black bottoms would be appropriate. 

On the other hand, if you have a heavy top and a leaner bottom then a black top and white bottoms would be appropriate. The black top would give the heavier top a slimmer look. Even though you can experiment with different cuts and stick to what you like. 

How would you wear black and white ? What pop of colour would you add to your black and white outfit?

I’d love to know your thoughts.

Styling an oversized shirt 

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

Hey guys,

How are you going to be chilling these holiday ? I’ll be asleep for most of the day. 

How’s your life been like ? 

I hope all is well with you and yours. 

Edit

Slipping an oversized button down shirt under a skater skirt wasn’t such a hard guess. I feel like the skirt further highlights my waist and makes the shirt look slim in the right place.  

The shirt can be fully tucked in like I did, or tucked in half way. Maybe worn on its own without a skirt, you decide. 

I styled this oversized button down shirt I got from my dad, paired with this skater skirt in school girl pleats covered in bows. I finished up the look with my heeled sandals, an inner bag from a much bigger shopper bag and hand candy. 

I’m in love with the pale blue colour of this shirt and how comfortable it is. Plus oversized shirts are so comfy and give a certain type of vibe especially with rolled sleeves.  

How would you wear an oversized button down shirt ? 

I’d love to know your thoughts.

Styling a Floral Dress

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

Hey guys,

How are you doing ?

I was in awe of this dress when I first put it on, so I figured a post would be appropriate.

Floral dresses are very feminine and tend to be head turners on their own. The whole idea is to let the dress do the talking, just so you do not end up looking like a flowerpot.

Its worthy to note that the size of flowers on these dresses do a lot to the body type of the wearer. Larger flowers flatter petite body types, while smaller flowers flatter average to curvy body types.

Floral patterns with white backdrops and bright flowers like mine, help you hide those unpleasant bulges. Floral patterns with dark backdrops give the body a slim illusion. Generally, neutral colors like black, white, nude and silver work well with floral patterns.

You really want to accessorize with simple and subtle jewelry, I’m talking studs and maybe a thin chain. Runaway from statement jewelry so that you don’t distract attention from the dress.

Try not to wear floral print shoes. I feel like florals are best worn with neutral shoes, or you could pick one of the shades of the dress and match with the colour of your shoes, you should totally copy me lol. Hold up, here’s a thought, pair your dress with all black accessories maybe.

Your handbag should match the most prominent colour in your dress like mine did, or a basic neutral colour like black, white, nude or brown.

Belts are also attractive accessories for floral dresses. It needs to be really thin, and should be a colour in your dress. Alternatively if your dress is only two coloured you could use a totally different belt colour, like a red or blue belt paired with a white and black floral dress.

So here’s what  I did, I picked colours from my dress and had some fun with my clutch and heels. I didn’t use a belt but you definitely should. I’d love to see how you style your floral dress.

Thank you for keeping up, and you know I’d love to read your thoughts.

That pencil skirt.  

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

Hey lovelies,

How was this past week for you ? I don’t have words for how my week turned out.

I thought to rant about pencil skirts today.

Pencil skirts suit most body shapes, you just need to figure out how to style it. That’s where I come in. Whatever your body type is, a pencil skirt will flatter your figure.  Pencil skirts can be worn with a variety of blouses, shirts and blazers.

I paired a blue and pink floral sleeveless blouse with this red pencil skirt. I tried this skirt with different colors but it felt like magic when I paired it with this blouse. I accessoried with ivory heels, a black bag and some hand candy.

I’ll be sharing some tips on rocking that pencil skirt in your wardrobe;

  • You can pair solid colored pencil skirts with textured or patterned blouses like I did.
  • You can try bold patterned blouses if your bottom half is slim, it sorta adds some illusion to your curves.


  • Tucking in your blouse defines your waist.
  • Tucking in a simple tee into your pencil skirt with sneakers would be an  effortlessly stylish look.

  • If you want to achieve an hourglass figure, you could use a belt – the belt colour should be darker than your top and skirt, or maybe wear a peplum top.


How would you style your pencil skirt ? Would you consider getting a pencil skirt in colour red ?

Thank you for your time.

I’d love to read your thoughts.

Loving distressed denim

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

Hey guys,

How are you living ?

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Anyhoo I’m sure your eyes have noticed the distressed denim flu that seems to be going around. Gotta love denim !!!

Distressed denim have such a super casual feel and its hard to go wrong in them.


This kind of denim is probably more versatile than you think. They’re not so hard to style as they’re your same old denim just with a bit of edge. Plus, they add a bit of personality to your look.

They’re more than just jeans, they’re distressed jeans. 

A to go outfit would be with a basic tee and sneakers.

I styled my denim with this sexy ass buttoned down vintage shirt I copped a while ago, nude courts and hand candy of course. Yesss to hand candyyy !!!

Distressed denim will give your look a bit of sauce and we need to emphasize on the denim as the icing on the outfit.

I would suggest you rock them with a simple tee, could be v neck , round neck or something the significant other owns with a pair of sneakers or flats.

You could take it a notch up with a formal shirt, and divert the attention from the distressed part of the denim. This would give off a smart casual vibe.

You could also style these jeans with a cropped top or a fully tucked body suit, paired with courts or strappy sandals. 

How would you style your denim in distress ? 

Thank you for sticking around.

I’d love to read your thoughts.

Styling a white shift dress

I Wore What, What I'm wearing

A shift dress should be comfortable and figure flattering. When you add white to the mix, you just might be able to eat your cake and have it.  

Shift dresses are an extremely versatile piece of clothing. From weekend chills to work or cocktail parties, which ever works for you. 

They can be worn with footwear from sandals, sneakers to court shoes and fancy heels. 

I styled this white beauty with these back and white court shoes. I added this gold beaded clutch to give a chic vibe. 

This would work for a date. A change of footwear and purse and it’ll be just right to hang at the movies, or maybe a shower. 

You might wanna look for dresses that are slightly tailored, so it’s not too tight or too loose.

Jewelry should be minimal, even though strong pieces like a cuff would work. You wouldn’t wanna distract everyone else from the awesomeness of that shift dress. 

these court shoes stay giving me life

Dress it up with a scarf, jacket or a belt. Whichever you prefer.

Shift dresses usually keep it short and sweet. They’re perfect because the fabric isn’t clingy and lets you move freely in them.

Let me know how you’d rock your shift dress.

Candy Pleats

What I'm wearing


This is surely a very girly outfit. 


I think the light texture of this pleated skirt works well with the heels, and when you mix it up with the denim the look reeks of candy floss. Lol. 

Pleated skirts can be different from wide pleats to knife pleats and vary in different sorts of colors. 

Teamed with mini, midi and maxi lengths and unexpected textures like leather. They can be styled with slouchy sweaters, chiffon blouses, blazers, plain tees and chambray shirts. 

I thought to style this sleeveless denim buttoned down shirt with the light pink pleated skirt. 

I completed the look with a scarf, a black bag and these hot pink heels. 



Would be perfect for date night or maybe chill with the girls. 

Still a bit sceptical about this outfit, so you see why I’d appreciate your comments.
