Travel diaries -Wide leg trousers.

I have always been a fan of wide leg / Palazzo trousers. I tend to travel with at least one pair on each of my holidays.  

This cut of trousers are very flattering for us hippy, voluptuous, curvy, plus size women. Don’t ask me why but it’s something to do with the proportions and the visual illusion created with the trouser leg going straight down from the waist to the hem. 

Anyway, I really wanted to share my secret find. Buying good fitting clothing is no easy feat. When Friends and family members tell me that a shop has long length trousers, I usually do not listen. Whats long for an average height woman, may not cut it for a tall sister. 

I vaguely remember someone saying that Zara trousers are long in length.  They were on sale and had my size so I added three pairs of trousers to my basket and checked out. 

Pleasantly suprised with the fit and length would b an understatement. One pair was actyally sweeping the floor. A luxury tall ladies rarely have.

So if your ever shopping for wide leg or palazzo trousers, I would say give Zara a try. 

Do let me know what your experiences are with Zara trousers. 
Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

Summer 2016 must haves -Denim dresses

We are well into the summer but it’s not too late to whip out the Denim dress … if you have not done so already. 

Denim is so versatile and not to mention it goes with practically everything. 

This summer I am totally loving the romantically feminine pinafore denim dress. It compiments the t-shirt under a dress look and gracefully takes me back to my youth.

I am wearing a midi denim dress from Asos. This belted dress nips me in at the waist for the feminine look. Shop this dress here 👉

Wearing t-shirts under Spaghetti straps..

Another 90’s blast from the past that has been trending with both celebrities and fashionistas. 

This layered look is extra cool. While you might not fancy layering in the hot summer months but this works because the layering is super light.  

The easiest way to begin experimentimg with this trend is to layer a white t-shirt under a black spaghetti strap dress.  

This t-shirt midi dress from Topshop actually comes as a one piece but is no longer available. 

I also styled this orange jumpsuit in the same way with a 3/4sleeve body

For the ultimate supermodel look layer with a slip dress.  I have curated these TALL cross back slip dress from Topshop for just £29. I can’t get over the amazing colours. Which is your fav colour ?

Shop these slip dresses here :http://m.topshop.com/h5/product?productId=25196336

Have fun with experimenting with this throw back 90’s style.

5 ways to wear stripes

Everyone has their own rule on whether to wear vertical or horizontal strips. My view is that the only correct rule is the one that you feel comfortable in.

Here are 5 ways I rocked my stripes. 

1. Boohoo maxi dress. 

I really love the varied thickness in the stripes. It adds so depth to this pattern. This is a piece that can eask be dressed up or down and it cut in a very flattering wrap front style 👍.

2) Marks and Spencer striped body con dress. 

This dress was literally a steal from M&S.  Believe me they do the best sales. This dress has the most flattering deep back neck scoop.

3) Asos Strappy vest dress.

This easy peasy vest dress is great for all occasions this summer. 

4) Newlook Culotte jumpsuit 

Fed up wearing Jean, skirts and dresses. This jumpsunit culotte can and will add variety to your summer wardrobe.

Summer shorts

Y’all know that I am not a huge fan of showing off my legs.  That said,we make exceptions while catching rays in sunny locations. I bought these denim shorts and they made me fall in love my legs all over again. 

I am now of the veiw that every girl should own at least one pair of Denim shorts. They are great for the beach, to parties and Not to mention totally wearable on those hot summer days.

They are the perfect stretch, high waisted and a cool shade of blue.

I added a longline kimono to this outfit for that swirly carefree blowing in the wind look. I just love it. 

Shop these short at Dorothy perkins Tall http://m.dorothyperkins.com/h5/product?productId=24548389

Wearing Skirts with trainers 

I bet you never thought these two world would every collide. Practical meets feminine, it was bound to happen.  

This look is perfect for all my city crawlers. The UK weather is just so unpredictable. Too many times have I been caught in the rain in sandals. I know may of you can relate to being fooled by the foreast.

White trainers add a chic finish to this look. With tennis and Wimbledon still in the air they are perfect for all my centre court gamer.

Varied stripe –  Becky Striped maxi shirt dress

This maxi dress turned midi on my six foot tall frame. I am not mad because I loved it so much that I managed to rock it regardless. 

The varied thickness of the stripes adds so much depth to the pattern.

With a wrap front and thigh high splits at the side, you can guarantee that you will be showing some legs.

 

I added my own red bed belt and shoe boots. 😍

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.
