Jessica Pearson (played by Gina Torres) of Suits embodies the ideal women of the corporate world. Presiding as the head of a reputable law firm, this woman is attractive, confident, intelligent, and has a wardrobe to die for. When I think of myself working in the corporate world, I see myself rocking items similar to hers. She is always dressed in high-end designers like Donna Karen and Ralph Lauren. Now some us don't have the money for designers, well not yet anyways but thankfully, Asos has an amazing selection of corporate dresses all under $101 which can be recreated to achieve her outfits. Trust me, you need to check this show out, if not for the great story line then simply for Jessica Pearson's bomb style.

What's your favourite dress?

When trying to make a statement and still remain comfy I go for a simple graphic tee and my boyfriend jeans which I previously styled here and here. I'd probably rock this look with sneakers but if I'm trying to make more of an effort I would add heels. This look would be perfect for a casual weekend outing, shopping with the girls or perhaps a movie date.

Oh I re-installed my braids, couldn't stay without them for too long. I'll probably have to try out weaves sometime soon because my hair line is having issues. Boredom made me braid my own hair, my mom was marvelled and she kept asking me why I like to suffer myself lol but in my defence I actually enjoy doing my own hair.

It's good to be back.

Based on the comments from my last post, I just want to quickly address some of you concerns over my taking a break from blogging. Everything is okay, things are just slow since I am waiting for NYSC in May as mentioned here. Anyways, I simply needed a break from bogging. Sometimes it's nice to just chill, regroup and come back feeling refreshed. I am privileged to have such understanding followers like you, thanks.

 I plan on doing more look-books and trying my best to reply to comments (apologies for slacking on that). For blog-post requests, please let me know and I'll take them into consideration.

Now onto today's outfit which is almost entirely from my sister's closet. She was visiting and I saw that she had some nice items which I borrowed with her permission of course, she even took these pictures. I paired this look with these lace-up booties which just makes any outfit edgier.

Shoes: Zalora Thailand (Here) || Pants, Shirt, Necklace, Purse: Sister's Closet

This break has been a long time coming. Don't get me wrong, I love blogging but I just need some time off. I will be gone for about 2-3 weeks. I didn't want to just leave suddenly due to my consistency so I thought I'd let you guys know because you are my people after-all. See you soon!

Happy Sunday!
Today I simply paired my beige skirt with my khaki and then added my brown belt to cinch in my waist. I opted for my leopard print purse for a pop of print and finished the look with my nude sandals.
Till next time.

Valentines day

At the risk of sounding cliche, my ideal valentines date would be with that special someone at an expensive gourmet restaurant, topped of with a long walk and a great conversation (ugh, I've been single for far too long).

Anyways, Zalora Thailand is doing a Valentine's day contest and I thought it would be fun to participate. I stand a chance of getting store credit if I win. I have also collaborated with them in the past (here). My initial plan was to go for an outfit in a colour other than red but then I came across this dress and I just had to give in. I can totally picture myself rocking this dress on a date, church and even work due to the versatility.

I went with gold accessories since they go very nicely with red and added the cropped jacket for a cover up in case it gets cold.
What's you ideal valentine date?

If I learnt anything from my first job, it's that I don't work well in environments where I'm unhappy. I have always heard people say that "when you find something you love the money does not matter", I honestly never believed them until I got my first 9-5 job while I was in Bangkok. 

 My ideal working environment is somewhere I can't wait to go to everyday (no saying TGIF or disliking Mondays). I'd be dressed in pressed suits and designer shoes while meeting clients in business meetings and oh let's not forget the lovely cocktail dresses for the dinner parties.  I aim high when I set a goal and speak things into existence because our words have power.

Today's outfit is to inspire those of you with office jobs. This is something I would wear to my ideal job, am I ready to work or what?

One thing I love about blogging, is being able to inspire and be inspired. Since I started this blog I have been pushing myself to try outfit pairings that I would never have ordinarily put together or thought of. Now, this particular look is inspired by Ada of No ordinary she

In recent times we have all seen the popularity of ankara African print fabric in the fashion industry. In Nigeria, our traditional attires are called natives while jeans and a T-shirt is referred to as English wear hence the tittle of this post. I love the mix of modern and traditional in this look. The shirt, jeans and flats keep it simple while the head-wrap adds a nice pop of colour and print (tutorial here)

Shirt: Vintage (Here)|| Pants: H&M (Here) || Flats (Here), Bag (Here): Bangkok Street Market || Head-wrap: Mom's wrapper

How do you like to incorporate ankara into modern looks?
