Hey Beautiful people, how was your democracy day holiday? I spent mine at work but branched at the market during my break and got tons of fabric  which I can't wait to give to my new tailor.

Now it's no secret that the Nigerian economy is not very favorable, especially to the average citizen who wants to look fashionable. If you refer to my post on tips on how to be fashionable on a tight budget, then you would note that I mentioned tailored clothing as an option.

Now while I prefer ready-made clothes or vintage, tailored clothing is more budget friendly, especially with the dollar Naira rate. So the solution as my mom would say is to get good fabrics and designs. My new found tailor CeCe nailed it for just 4k for everything!

Initially I was not going to style my co-ord set together as I'm not a big fan of bold prints. Though after several compliments I decided to give it a try and I must say I love the outcome. See the power of words. 

When styling my culottes and peplum set, I decided to go for basic heels due to the bright print and my cat-eye frames to spice things up. I love the pajama feel of the fabric as well.

Co-ord: Tailored || Heels: Zara || Frames: Street Buy

How would you style this differently? And how do you stay fashionable on a budget?

Hey beautiful people, Happy Children's day!

So I'm back with another collaboration and today I'm partnering with one of my favourite Nigerian bloggers, Nkechi of Style By Enkay, to give you tips on how to rock Monochrome. The amazing thing about Nkecki is that she  she makes her own clothes, jewellery and is also a makeup artist. I'm so glad we are finally doing something together.

We all know that you can't go wrong with black and white, it's one of those pairings. Now I decided to go with a white flared skirt, you all know how much I love my midi-skirts. I then paired it with my black simple top, added a statement necklace and whala, there you go.

I added my black pumps but also swapped with my Gafasandals (style here and here) for a more casual fit. I honestly prefer this look with the sandals though, you?

Skirt: Thrifted || Top: Thailand || Shoes: Forever 21 || Necklace: H&M || Sandals: Gafasandals

Now, Enkay went for a more corporate look with a stripped blazer and black pencil skirt, see how we all incorporated basics into our outfits?

SARAH SPEAKS: DEDICATED TO MY DADDY



11 comments

Hey beautiful people!

Guess whose birthday it is today? Well it's none other than my favorite man in the world, my daddy! 
This post was supposed to be up a lot earlier but situations out of my control brought us to where we are right now. 

My dad is an amazing person, the best role model out there and if you've met my dad then you'd definitely agree with me. We not only look alike but as my mom would say; I took after him in many other ways.

This post is a tribute to him; I'll be sharing a few things that my dad has taught me.

1. Love for God
My dad always says; hold God like an egg because in this life we can't do anything without him. My Dad's success today is a testament to his relationship with God and God's presence in his life. I'm so thankful to have such a strong spiritual role model. Seriously in another life I probably would have been a pastor's daughter, who knows maybe it'll happen is this life.

 2. Positive thinking and words
I'm sure you've all heard of the quote "speak things into existence", well my dad lives this. When my dad is sick he would say I'm very strong, he always proclaims positive things and that has really impacted on me. So much so that I try to see the positive side of everything and constantly proclaim God promises in my life.

3. Confidence
My dad is the most confident person I know. Though not in a cocky way just in  "I know who I am and what I can do sort of way". Growing up, my father instilled in me this self belief that I still posses till today. I believe with a little faith in God and ourselves, we can do anything! 

4. Relationship
Thanks to my dad, I see what I want in a relationship and family. The commitment and honesty I want in my future partner. Thanks to the love I've seen in my dad, I know my worth and know that I can't and won't settle for anything less than I deserve.

5. Prayer
I can't remember a time that my dad ended a call or text without praying for me and my siblings. In fact when trouble strikes before thinking of anything else, I pray about it or bring out my anointing oil.

I've learnt so much more from my dad, subconscious lessons and unconscious attitudes. All in all, I'm thankful for my father. If everyone were privileged to be raised by my parents,
this world would be a better place.  

This is me saying thank you Dad and happy 52nd birthday! 
Fun fact, my das calls me princess hence my blog title, Princess Audu.

Shout out to all the amazing dads like mine, what lessons did you learn from your father? Be sure to check out my tribute post (here) to my mom on her special day. 


HOW WOULD YOU WEAR: OFF SHOULDERS

Hey Beautiful people! 

So today rather than my usual "Sarah Speaks" Segment I'm back with another outfit post. Wow can you remember the last time, I posted two outfit in one week? I miss those days though.  Today I'm partnering with my fellow bloggers to bring the monthly How would you wear challenge. Yeah we took a break for a while but we are back with the theme, how to style off-shoulders.

The off-shoulder trend is one I absolutely adore but based on my conservative style and my not wanting to be bothered with bra issues, I am yet to fully embrace the trend. I decided to style my trousers, previously styled here with my semi-off shoulder blouse. I then added a statement necklace.  I couldn't decide on my shoe choice so I rocked both my Zara sandals and Forever 21 pumps but I've got to admit that I prefer the pumps with this outfit, don't you?

How have you styled this trend? Or better yet what's your take on this trend? 

Top: Thailand ||  Trousers: Vintage || Necklace: H&M || Shoes: Forever 21
