Hey guys! 
It's a new week, so in the spirit of speaking things into existence, this week is going to be great.  I see new opportunities coming our way.  This week will not end empty handed for us.  We will do exploits and achieve great things. The Lord will surprise us with something amazing.  

Now if you're new to the blog, welcome!
As advocates of modest and conservative dressing,  we here on Princess Audu are big fans of the culottes trend.  We like rocking our culottes in mixed prints,  co-ord setscorporate wears,  monochrome looksturtle necks and makeshift jumpsuits just like in today's post.

These culottes are no stranger to the blog,  I like to call them the 400 naira ($1) steal (styled herehere and here), see why thrifting is the new in-thing. Well today,  I decided to incorporate the culottes trend into a makeshift jumpsuit.  

And let me tell you a secret, the top is actually a dress styled here and here. I thought I'd spice things up with an African inspired DIY turban. As mentioned in my post on how to spice up basics, turbans are not only great for bad hair days but also great for taking an outfit to another level.

Wondering how to achieve a similar look,  I have two headwrap tutorials here and here.  Just to note,  the unseen flexi rods in my hair helped in adding volume to the head wrap.

  1. The dress (top in this case) is such a perfect blend with the culottes. Without looking closely one can even assume that it's a jumpsuit. Good Job. You look stylish.

  5. I actually thought the top was a tank top then I checked where you styled it first and was like 'wow'. I love clothing pieces that can be styled in various ways. This look is really good.
