Ever say of hear this phrase " So many clothes yet, I have nothing to wear"? Often times people are faced with this dilemma because they are still discovering their style or lack closet essentials. Until you understand the basis of building a wardrobe filled with basics or essentials this will continue to be you everyday. Simpy start by building a wardrobe with basics like a white T-shirt, striped top, denim shirt as well as other things (stay tuned for a post on this).

This skirt has been styled here and here on the blog already but this time around I went with a striped top and added a scarf for a mix of print. I actually wore this to church last Sunday and my nine year old brother took these pictures for me while we stopped to get some pizza for lunch, I'd say he did a great job, you?

I was once asked this question,"if you had to give up all your clothes and keep only one item, what would it be?" While this doesn't seem like  a very realistic question, I simply answered my black pencil skirt. This black pencil skirt is quite versatile and I have rocked it several times on the blog already. I mean you can't go wrong with a pencil skirt (love how it brings out my curves), a nice blouse and a statement belt.

The pastel trend was all the rage in the spring of 2014. What I love about pastels is the soft feminine refreshing hues. Today I decided to bring back this trend by rocking my light blue denim top with my high-waist pants.

I have to admit that I'm quite surprised these pants still fit me. Although, I have been doing the T25 workout challenge to lose some of the extra pounds I've gained, a lot of the workouts involve squatting. Now I have no complaints over the improvements I'm seeing so far but it makes it difficult for me to wear my bottoms which are now very fitted. My sister says I'm nyashous Lol. Anyways, I'll give you more updates when I've finished the challenge. For more details see my post on it here.

 I would rock this outfit to a casual brunch or a weekend outing.
What's your take on pastels?

Growing up, I was told to never mix contrasting colours, for example colours like red and blue paired together were a big no-no. I always matched my shoes to my purse or dress to avoid colour riot as my family calls mismatched colours. Now fast forward to 2012, wearing multiple colours became a trend. Being a fashion enthusiast, I embraced this trend and have been rocking it since. Sure it has died down a bit but this is a trend I will never stop rocking because colours just makes everything better. 

Whenever I am feeling uninspired, I search for new blogs or stalk some of my favourite celebrities and this outfit was actually inspired by Yvonne Nelson, the Ghanaian actress and model.
