THRIFTING IN THAILAND

One of the things I'll miss about Bangkok, Thailand is the amazing bargains on thrift items. You all know I love vintage pieces and this pair of high-waist trousers only cost about eight dollars (1,600 Naira), the most I have ever spent on a thrifted item, ugh I miss Bangkok.

Now, as much as I love switching up my outfit pairings, I have my moments of sticking to what's comfortable and easy. After all, "if it aint broken why fix it"? Which brings me to this outfit, I have actually styled this top in a similar colour palette here and this crop top and high-waist trouser pairing is inspired by this look here

Anyways, I love the casual yet dressy element of these trousers. I decided to pair my Mr Price Kimono (previously styled here and here) with this look, it has been my uniform lately and I feel that it makes a great cover-up for this outfit. I would rock this to lunch date.

IT'S SIMPLE

When it comes to describing my style I'd say it's simple with pops of colour and prints here and there. The last time I styled this skirt, I was obviously thinner, still trying to work on losing the extra weight I've gained over the pasts few months. Increasing my workout intensity should get better results, wish me luck.

This time around, I paired the skirt with this simple turtle neck top previously styled here and added a pop of colour with the pink heels and printed purse. I have been loving Polyvore lately so I recreated this outfit in a set below. I'm actually thinking of getting this skirt and top when I get back to Nigeria.

Skirt: Vintage || Top: Mom's Closet || Shoes, Purse, Belt: MBK Thailand 

For some reason blogger seems to be editing my photos after uploading, does anyone know how to fix that? Thanks.
Have a blessed month!

Jessica Pearson (played by Gina Torres) of Suits embodies the ideal women of the corporate world. Presiding as the head of a reputable law firm, this woman is attractive, confident, intelligent, and has a wardrobe to die for. When I think of myself working in the corporate world, I see myself rocking items similar to hers. She is always dressed in high-end designers like Donna Karen and Ralph Lauren. Now some us don't have the money for designers, well not yet anyways but thankfully, Asos has an amazing selection of corporate dresses all under $101 which can be recreated to achieve her outfits. Trust me, you need to check this show out, if not for the great story line then simply for Jessica Pearson's bomb style.

What's your favourite dress?

When trying to make a statement and still remain comfy I go for a simple graphic tee and my boyfriend jeans which I previously styled here and here. I'd probably rock this look with sneakers but if I'm trying to make more of an effort I would add heels. This look would be perfect for a casual weekend outing, shopping with the girls or perhaps a movie date.

Oh I re-installed my braids, couldn't stay without them for too long. I'll probably have to try out weaves sometime soon because my hair line is having issues. Boredom made me braid my own hair, my mom was marvelled and she kept asking me why I like to suffer myself lol but in my defence I actually enjoy doing my own hair.
