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

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 πŸ‘‰

Wearing Skirts with trainersΒ 

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.

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 – 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.

Earn your stripes

Have you earned your fashion stripes.
You have to be pretty bold and basically not give a damn to try this striking stripe on stripe combination. But guess what…. I think it totally works. Don’t you?

image

This ensemble has it all going on. More is surely more here. We are seeing this trend all over the fashion runway with designer taking a linear approach and mixing chunky and thin stripes, vertical and horizontal. Anything goes so there is room on the line for you to stamp your personality on this look.

image

This wrap front shirt does wonders for me and the neck line is very flattering. As you can see this “fab” blouse was perfectly designed for my tall limbs and the sleeves kiss my wrist perfectly.

image

This trend will have you on the fast track to fashionable lane.
