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- Destination Birthday

My love for traveling has multipled over the years. I love getting to see different parts of the world;the foods, the people, art and culture. 

I have been privilaged to spend another birthday in a different country. In all honesty… this is by far the longest birthday celebrations. It seems as though I have been celebrating since I got here on Monday 19th of September  and I am sure the celebrations will continue long after the 23rd. 

Birthdays are not quite right without cake. I went back to the Fontanella tea garden for some delicious cake and breathtaking views.

I ended the day with dinner by the yacht marines. Had the most delicious salad. I did not know that salads could be so tasty. 

See you soon.  X

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 πŸ˜’?. As a jumpsuit it’s super easy to wear.

Dress it up for a day to night look. πŸ˜™

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.Β

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 -Pink Affair

Sometimes girls just ‘wanna’ be girls. I find the colour pink to be so girly but once in a while it’s good to indulge.
When am on holiday there are no heels rules. When I can, I wear the highest heels I have and cause a lot of commotion because I know in a few days or weeks I will pack my bags and be on my way.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

Shoes for sandals -Travel Diaries

It’s taken over 12 hrs to get to my destination Abiriba in Nigeria.Β This is a small village in Abia State and am proud to say that this is where am from!
Home is differently where the heart is. Feels so good to be amongst old family and friends. I have met up with people who I have not seen for years and the catch up has been real to say the least.

Follow my travel diaries over the next few days. The Internet situation is real but bare with me as I try to keep a daily log of outfits and activities.
