Hey lovelies,

I hope you all have had a wonderful week so far. My week has been splendid. It has been full of work and all that jazz. This is what I wore to work earlier this week. I’ve missed tying my turbans and headscarves terribly but my place of work does not allow it except on Fridays or on days like this day when school is out of session and we’re expected to come to work to prepare for the next school term.

I don’t think I mentioned it but I work in a school here in Lagos, Nigeria. The name of the school is SEED OF MESSIAH NURSERY, PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. I love my work here so much. I work in the administrative department of the school. The cool thing about working here is that I once walked these halls as a student but now I’m back there as a member of staff to make an impact in the lives of children and I’m doubly grateful to God for that.

I took a few close up pictures of my turban to show the style in which it is tied. I tied two to make one big headpiece.

I wish you all a splendid weekend.

Hey lovelies!!!

I hope you all had a slammin’ week. I’m sorry it took me a while to do another outfit post. I tried to do some outfit posts last week but I had a little challenge but it’s all good now.

Now, on to the good stuff. I just wanted to put up a quick outfit post of what I wore to work last week Wednesday.

I wanted to wear this beautiful, colourful dress to work and I had to style it in a work-appropriate manner, hence the boyfriend cardigan I paired with the outfit.

I was kinda apprehensive about wearing my cardigan because I live in a tropical area but it all worked out for the best because we had a rainy day and the weather was cool.

May I just express how much I love my earrings. I got them from my mom about a year and half ago and I rock them almost everyday. The earrings are in form of three flower petals. I just love the girly detail on them.

Hey lovelies!!!

I hope you all are doing beautifully well. I owe everyone a huge apology for being away for months. I’m so sorry. I want to thank my followers who have stayed with me through this dry spell and have not unsubscribed and I also want to welcome my new followers. So these past few months have been a little hectic for me, what with coming home and starting a new job so that’s the major reason why I was off the radar for a while but I’m back with a bang.

So moving on to the ootd, this is what I wore to work on Monday and I decided to take some pictures at the end of my work day. I love my outfit mainly because of the femininity of my skirt. There is nothing that brings out the feminine side more than a beautiful midi length circle skirt and in a beautiful soft pink colour too! (That’s the stuff dreams are made of. Haha!). I decided to carry on with the whole girly theme throughout my outfit, hence the different shades of pink and purple. I also love my blouse and the simple, girly look it has to it. I felt like a princess throughout today. Isn’t it wonderful how an outfit can just make your day brighter?

Now, to my hair. As you would notice from my last post to this, I’ve cut my hair again and dyed it burgundy (it was supposed to be red but the black of my hair is way to intense for it to come out bright red but I still love it). I styled it with the eco-styler gel and a bun maker made of spongy material. Let me know if you want me to show you how I achieved the curls.

And I couldn’t resist taking some pictures of some funny all be it cute poses of me when I got back to my office, so enjoy.

Have a lovely week all you beautiful people.

Hey lovelies!!!

First of all, I want to apologize for my absence these past few weeks. I traveled to visit my baby nephew and he has been keeping me on my toes ( I love my little prince) so I’ve not been able to do any outfit post. 

I just wanted to share with you my new haircut. This is something that I’ve wanted to do for so long but I just never had the courage to do. Well, I finally summoned up the courage and got my hair cut on Saturday and boy, do I love the new look. I feel like  new ME. I feel like I look different but in a good way. I feel more mature and confident. I love the new ME. 

So please let me know what you all think and I wish you all a pleasant rest of the week. Stay blessed.

Hey lovelies!!!

I hope you all are having a beautiful week. I also hope those of you staying in the areas with the bad weather conditions are okay and safe. I have not been able to go out this past few days because of the weather, hence my lack of outfit posts. I’m sorry for my absence.

I wore this outfit a couple of days back just before the weather deteriorated. This outfit was really born out of not being sure of what to wear. I decided to wear a turtleneck because it was cold and I paired it with my peplum blazer that I love so much. I decided to play a little with color and print and still keep it simple. I paired my red turtleneck with animal print and my scarf incorporated the colors present on my outfit into its design. I accessorised by wearing a couple of rings (I’m sorry you really can’t see them) because of the simplicity of the outfit.

I wish you all a beautiful weekend. Stay blessed !!!

hey lovelies!!!

I hope you all are having a blessed week so far. I wanted to do a quick outfit post of what I wore on Tuesday to run some errands and then to go out to eat. My outfit is really simple but I’ve always believed in the beauty to be found in simplicity. I also noticed I’ve been rocking crop tops more. I guess in my subconscious, I’m ready for spring. Is that a trend you lovelies would be rocking this spring?

Hey lovelies!!!

This is what I wore to church on Sunday. I wanted to try on another monochromatic look but this time with more vivid colors and I love the way the whole outfit came together. I paired my outfit with a neutral colored bag and my new pair of Guisseppe Zanotti shoes (and I lovingly thank my brother for this gift, they were a dream to walk in). Well, I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. I wish you the best that this week has to offer. Stay blessed.

Hey lovelies!!!

I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend so far.

I have been looking for an overall dress like this for sometime ever since I fell in love with one I saw on Dorothy Perkins so when I saw this at Marshalls some time ago, I just knew I had to have it.

The overall dress really reminded of my days as a school girl in my uniform of a pinafore, the school blouse and a beret. I just had to recreate my school girl look but with an adult twist so I added a crop  top, a knit hat and I put my burgundy tights to good use again. So let me know what you lovelies think about my outfit.

I decided to add my jacket from Forever 21 for warmth.

I don’t know how my friend is always able to capture me in my joie de vivre moments but she always manages to do so in every photo session that we have and I have to say that those pictures are always my personal favorites in the bunch.

Hey lovelies!!!

It’s been cold the last few days here in Georgia, so I decided to layer up my jackets so as to withstand the chill. I also decided to wear a tank top under my crop top just to give me added warmth. My hair is in a scarf because you just do not want to know what it looks like underneath that scarf. I hope the weather has been treating you all fairly.
