GRAPHIC TEE + MIDI-SKIRT


Happy Sunday!
Today I decided to wear my University shirt which I had previously styled HERE to church. This time around I went for a dressier look by pairing it with a midi-skirt. Even though I have already graduated from BUIC, I cant help wearing the shirt, besides I bought it when I was already done with school, so I might as well rock it.

When styling graphic Tees, the easiest way to dress it up is to pair it with skirts and tuck in. Another option is to go for court shoes, but I opted for sandals since well I felt that this pair was perfect and also I wanted to rock my new shoes.

Shirt: BUIC Staff // Skirt, Bag: Street Market // Belt: Workshop // Shoes: Zara //

See you soon!

SHORTS KINDA DAY

I don't often where shorts but when I do, I like to go for tailored and high-waist shorts. This comfy look was inspired by Skinny Hipster's look HERE. I really love her mix of textures and patterns so I went for a mix of stripes and lace.

I have actually featured these shorts styled with this exact blouse on the blog before HERE. While I try not to wear my clothes the same way twice, I just felt like this blouse is perfect for these shorts. Though, this time I opted for my blush blazer and changed up the accessories to create a different look. I wore this to work on one of my chill days.

Props to my friend for these pictures, this was probably the shortest photo-shoot(10 minutes) that I have ever done but the pictures came out great.


Shorts, Blazer: Thrifted // Bag, Shirt, Shoes: Street Market

On another note, I was feeling a bit down today, my friend had no idea on how I was feeling but while chatting with her she something that just made me feel so much better. Words have the power to make or break people, so we should be careful how we use them.

See you soon!

IT'S OKAY


Often times we go through life questioning the situations we face. Why me? Why now? The question we ask ourselves but what we forget is that God see’s the bigger picture; He knows what he is doing. It might suck or feel awful now but it will be okay! How do I know this? Well the bible says:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose" ( Romans 8:28 KJV)

Now onto today's outfit. I paired a pink crop top with my stripped harem pants. I love the pop of colour the pink top adds to this outfit and the harem pants are so comfy. I opted for my chunky heels to dress this casual look up a bit.


Pants and Purse: Street Market // Crop Top: Bershka // Shoes: Zara // Necklace: Forever 21 //
 Bracelet: H&M

I am not one to show my tummy or mid-section so when styling crop-tops I always go for high-waist pieces.
How do you like to style crop tops?

THE ANKARA PEPLUM


You might recognize this fabric from another post here. While vacationing in Nigeria last year, my aunt made me this peplum top among other pieces. I simply styled it with my black jeans, and sandals. Finally I opted for gold accents and a bun for the finishing touch.

I had an amazing Sunday, the sermon was on point and I had an awesome time eating and catching up with friends. Just a tidbit of the sermon, often times we are tempted to compromise our beliefs based on our surroundings or simply trying to fit in. As Christians were supposed to stand out and not fit in. . Our actions on daily basis is how we spread our testimony of Jesus.


Top: Custom-made // Pants: H&M // Shoes: Zara // Necklace: Forever 21 // Belt: Workshop 

Let us learn to be different by being Christ-like in the way we walk, talk, dress, act because that’s how we impact people.
Have a blessed week!

RANDOME FRIDAY: FASHION INSPIRATION - STYLE PANTRY

So here I was, clueless on what to post for today's segment of Randome Friday. While I talked myself out of posting, at the back of my mind I kept hearing " Sarah, discipline, you have to post". Then here comes Folake of Style Pantry with her amazing posts and fashion style. I adore this woman's style! When I think of Style Pantry, I think " Classy" "Simple" and "Elegant". In Folake's case less is always more and she constantly kills it.

Here are some of her outfits that inspire me. If you don't know her then you need to go follow her now!





I still can't believe that she is 37 years old and has three kids.
What do you think of her style ?

ARCHIVE

Hey guys, I'm stuck at work so this is just a quick post. You can never go wrong with denim since its always in style. As you can tell from my hair, this is an old outfit from a while back. I often dress up to work but since the dress code is very casual sometimes I dress down.

On this particular day I opted for denim on denim. I was actually inspired by Prissyville on this look. I opted for my blue shoes to match the blue top and tadaa , as simple as it gets.

Denim Shirt: H&M // Pants: H&M // Shoes: New Look // Bag: H&M

When in doubt, go for a chambray shirt since they are so versatile.

See you tomorrow!

BACK TO SCHOOL LOOK-BOOK: THE CIRCLE SKIRT


As you know I recently graduated from University but I thought I'd create a back to school look-book to give you guys some outfit ideas. For most of my school life I wore uniforms even until university, though the rules were not as strict. I know most of you have probably resumed but I hope this helps.

I find that circle skirt are the most comfortable skirts for school, when I wear body-con skirts , I feel restricted and I constantly have to pull it down. Which is why I thought I'd create a look-book centered around a simple black skater skirt.


Look 1
So this sporty look is for those relaxed days, I simply styled a comfy sweatshirt with a duffel bag and sneakers.

Sweatshirt: Union Mall // Skirt: New Look // Sneaker: H&M // Bag: Pratunam

Look 2
You can never go wrong with black and white but you can always add a scarf for a pop of colour and opt for a big black to carry all your necessary items.

Shirt: Union Mall // White-T: New Look // Scarf: Cotton On // Sneakers: H&M // Bag: H&M

Look 3
There is nothing wrong with looking a little bit dressy for school. I tried to keep the fun school vibe by opting for a bright blazer and basic white T-shirt.

Blazer: Forever 21 // Flats: Street Market // Bag: New Look // Belt: Cotton On //
Necklace: Forever 21

Look 4
I decided to dress up the most basic denim shirt. Buttoned it up and added nerd glasses for a preppy feel. I opted for a red sling bag and leopard print flats for a pop of colour and took a folder to keep all my papers together.

Denim Shirt: Warehouse // Shoes: Carlo Berroti // Bag: Street Market // Glasses: 60 Shop //
