Airport outfit return home – Holiday blues

All good things have to come to an end. Fashion is very much a way of expressing ones self.What do I wear home? Something that caputures my mode well.  I love wearing the classic denim on denim trend.  It’s a trend that never dies or gets old.

I find that the Topshop Joni jeans are great to travel in because they have lots of stretch. The high waisted cut means that I do not have to worry about my jeans riding down.

You could definitely see that I have the holidays blues with this colour combinations.
I can not complain, I am well rested and ready to face my reality.

Hope you have enjoyed my travel diaries.
I shot some great looks while on holiday.  Can’t wait to share them with you.
I am also considering where to go next. All suggestions will be welcomed.
See you soon.

Travel Diaries – Striped Culotte jumpsuit

image

Culottes are here to stay. I am absolutely loving this jumpsuit piece. I was always worried about what to wear my culottes with. We all know that Culottes are an awkward breed of skirt /long shirts. Do I team it with a blouse or t-shirt 😒?. As a jumpsuit it’s super easy to wear.

Dress it up for a day to night look. 😙

image

I have consumed wayyy to much food on this holiday (pls don’t judge me ). Luckily these straight line straighten out all my lumps and bumps while the waist band gives the illusion of a nipped in waist.

                   Fashion magic !

How do you wear your Culottes? Is’nt this jumpsuit form a great idea?.

Travel Diaries- Modern day Buba

All I ever want is to be free. After a long day I want to be comfortable in whatever I wear in the evening.
Buba as it’s referred to in Nigerian culture is my outfit of choice.

image

The modern day Buba can be made from finer fabric such as Silk. It drapes well and it’s very cooling.
With multiple fabrics and colours to chose from, Buba’s have become wearable for most occasions.

image

Motif’s and brooches are a prefect way of adding a little ‘ooumph’ to your outfit.

I wore my hair in this up bun but took it down by the end of the evening.

Travel diaries -Cold shoulders meets Wide leg trousers

This is probably summer 2016’s hottest trend . I could not get enough of it this holiday.

I pair my cold shoulder top with my printed palazzo wide leg trousers.
I was absolutely over dressed for the trek today but I sure looked good while doing it.

It was a victorious moment when I made it to the top of the acropolis.
The views made it all worth while.

image

I swept my hair to the side to show off my statement earrings. I hope to write a blog post statement earring so keep an eye out for it.

Travel diaries – Pleated Maxi skirt

The night was airy with a very cool breeze. We dined at a sea food restaurant over looking the sea….. (sigh)…bliss

I must say… the dessert was to die for.
This maxi skirt has a sown in underskirt that keeps riding up. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the feeling of flying as skirt blew in  the wind.
I am totally in la la land.

On a side note.. my feet at are still very swollen.  Really struggling to wear most of my footwear. Any suggestions to reduce the swelling.

Travel diaries – Pink Skater dress

I figured that I should share what I wore to the beach since I did not leave the hotel in my swimsuit.

I find that skater dresses make pretty good cover ups.
They are great as add ons to beach wear yet very wearable when not at the beach too.

I am always pleasantly suprised at how flattering and cute this dress is.
This time I teamed it with pink flatforms and my flower headband.
Apparently I looked like a real Greek Goddess.
If your thinking Athena the goddess of wisdom then I will take it as a compliment.

Travel diaries – Paisley print swimsuit

I have really missed going for swims. I am a huge fan of Evans swimwear. Maybe I am partly biased because all the swimwear is fitted on me. Regardless… I just don’t think Evans get the credit they deserve at times .
I wore the paisley print swimsuit from Evans clothing.   The halterneck on this style is very flattering . More than anything else I like the fact that this one piece swim suit looks like a two peice . 😋tricked ya😋.

Travel diaries- Bardot with jeans

As blazing hot as it is in the day times, the evenings are very chilled and breezy.
Unfortunately I didn’t pack much cover ups.
However, I think that Bardot tops are a good way of serving some shoulder sexynessssss. 
I wore my Bardot bodies with skinny jeans.  Simple and yet stylish.

Sadly my feet have been swollen from the heat and the flight… flats sandals and sliders are the only things that fit.

Travel diaries – Lady in Red

The colour red is such a bold and statement colour. I think it requires lots of confidence to wear because you will most definitely get lots of stares.

I normally have my unbothered hat on while on holiday. My motto is that I will be gone in a few weeks or days so “what the heck!”

image

image

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.😜.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.  This natural sun light is great for selfies but also used the Live Love make up bronze palette.

image

image

This gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress was take from my mother’s closet. I loved it at first sight and just had to have it. The colour is very eye catching. It’s totally on tend and the thin straps mean you don’t have to worry about the dress rolling off your shoulders.

The frills on this dress is very flattering and great for hiding my problem areas

image

I decided to tie a knot on the hem of this dress because it’s not quiet the right length for my tall frame. But when I like am item, I  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either 😆.
