Travel diaries – Cargo shorts… are not dead.

I have started getting into shorts and decided to buy cargo shorts for my recent trip. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

They seemed fairly easy going and just want I needed for the hot climate. 

I didnt think these Cotton Cargo shorts looked so bad with high neck sleeveles’s shirt and my Sam Edelman Fringed Sandals.

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 thatπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ and pulled off this fabcheek look.

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.

I particularly love the chunky knitted turtlenecks.Β  Winter eat your heart out!

I would style my turtleneck with culottes. How would you style yours?

Hey Guys,

So we are half way through the A-Z A/W 2015 trends.Β  A huge thank you for all your support and time spent reading my posts thus far.

Ok, we are talking about the Margot Tenenbaum trend . This links in well with the “G” of geeky goes chic post . However Margot deserves her own blog post as her look inspired several designers such as Gucci and Lacoste this season.

Firstly you will need to get the hair cut right. Straight cut bob or lob with the trademark hair clips.

The long faux fur jacket.

image

The loafer shoes

image

The right clothing include tennis dresses , pleated midi skirts. You see were we are going.

Top hold tote bag

And you can’t forget the black eye pencil to complete the look.

There you have it. The very trending Margot Tenenbaum inspired look.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s  ‘N’  trend.

See you then.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Heels

Today we are talking HEELS,
I don’t just mean any type of heel, but block , chunky heels.
I am so glad these are hot off the runway.

As a tall and plus sizeΒ  woman I find that there is alot of strain on my knees and wearing heels can often make this worse.Β  I can’t bring myself to do away with my heels but whenever I can I prefer to opt for a chunky heel instead.Β 

Check out how these are worn in the a/w 2015 fashion show.

image

These boots from Lanvin were made for talking. You know they will be supper comfortable with those chunky heels.

image

I am also a huge fan these shoes from Anthony Vaccarello. Bling on shoes feature several times on the runway this season.

image

The barely off the ground sparkly shoes from Mui Mui are the business. I wouldn’t be rushing out to buy these but you see where am going with this trend.

Check out a few of my favourite heels that I have been able to showcase all thanks to Polyvore .

image

Who prefers to stay in the comfort zone even when wearing heels? πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹Meeeee!!!

Stay tuned for trend ‘I’ tomorrow.
In the mean time connect with me on instagram @ijaykheavens to see what I have been up to inbetwwen blogs.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 – Geeky goes Sexy

Right … I was slightly taken aback by today’s trend.

Geeky is the new sexyyy😨😨😨

When did looking geeky become so trendy. Goes to show that you just have to be yourself and experiment with fashion.

To achieve this look you need a combination of prints, colours and textures. Don’t forget to blend the feminine with the masculine.

image

Gucci a/w 2015 showed this fabulously. The geeky glasses that somehow just still works.

Hat
Pussy bow blouse
Tailored suit
