New rules for layering 

Does what to wear during winter make you want to pull out your hair too? 

It kills me to think weather over fashion.. why can’t I have it all?  

Recently, I have found a new way to layer clothes to stay warm and chic. 

Despite what you might think. … this is the time to stock up on awkward midi and long dresses.. yes midi dresses. By layering them over skinny jeans or wide leg trouser, you get to make the most out of it in the winter and the summer. The joy of having a multi-seasonal wardrobe.

There are a few simple rules :

  • Opt for loose fitting and floaty dresses. Midi’s and shirt dresses will change your layering game 👌
    • Experiment with colours, prints and textures. Dresses that contrast your jeans or trousers are ideal.
    • Feel free to seal the layers together with a trench or maxi coat.

    The final rule is to have fun with layering.  This is truly effectless chic at its finest.

    Travel diaries -Side split Maxi dress

    Summer is not over until we feature a maxi dress. I was in two minds about this dress because it’s much shorter than I would have preferred; but I couldn’t resist the colour. 

    I think I was saved my side split. A little sexiness and some movement ….I love. 

    My top tip for wearing ankle swinging maxi dresses is to make sure your shoe / sandal game is on fire.   Your feet are going to be showcased. Make sure they do not disappoint.

    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.

    Spring 2016 must haves -Front slit skirt

    This trend screams SEXY SPRING

    Skirts are uber feminine and when you add some “thighage” you get a very sexy feminine look. This is season to flaunt your pins ladies!

    I was a little worried about showing too much thick’em 🍗🍗. So I opted for a mini slit rather than a high slit skirt.

    Here is how I have been wearing my front slit shirts.
    PS: the slit doesn’t have to be a centre slit. Side slits are just as trendy👍




    Here are a few that I’m absolutely loving. (On my wants list).


    I love the print on this Michael Kors Cube print silk scarf skirt.


    Till next time . See you soon.

    Travel diaries – How to wear leather in a warm climate

    I always wondered how people in Nigeria can wear jackets, and tights given that the weather is so warm… I mean so Hot.

    I found the most gorgeous pleather skirt from River Island and I just had to travel with it.
    My friend told me that the way to survive in this Nigeria heat is to go from AC to AC.
    I did just that😃😃😃😃 and pulled off this fabcheek look.

    A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Denim

    Denim is still doing its thing. It is more or less season-less but this season we are seeing more flared demin and demin on demin and demin skirts. It ties in perfectly with the 70s trend.

    I shared some of the pics a little while back. This is the perfect time to pull out you flared jeans. Maybe not with sandals but you get my drift😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉.




    I absolutely love the idea of a denim skirt. This would be my ideal look for a denim skirt below


    If I could, I would dress my denim as seen below.


    It’s seems very strange wearing flared denim after having lived in skinny jeans for so long. Have you switched to Flares yet ?

    Check on it – Winter Coat for the Tall

    Hey Guys,

    Although the October weather has been pretty mild here in the UK, I know that the blistering COLD is on its way.  I have taken it upon myself to start my winter Coat hunt now!

    Ladies you know how difficult it is to find a good tall coat, one that is not sold out.  I did some of the leg work and will be sharing some of my fav finds here over the next few weeks.

    I start with this Charcoal Plaid Boy Friend fit Coat from Dorothy Perkins.


    I will be the first to say that this Coat does not look very appealing on the site. Unfortunately since we do not much choice but to shop online, I had to take a chance.  Ladies do not be afraid to take a chance!


    This boyfriend fit coat is fierce.  Totally different to anything in my wardrobe.  A great variety if your looking for something to spice up your wardrobe.

    I particularly love that I can turn up the sleeves and for the first time it is not because the sleeves are too short.





    So there you have it.  What do you think of this Coat.  Would you wear it ?  Would you buy it ?

    In case your wondering about the rest of my outfit.  Details below.

    Charcoal check Coat- Dorothy Perkins (Tall)
