HOW WOULD YOU WEAR | COLOUR-BLOCKING
"The world will tell you who you are until you tell the world"

In the world of social media, uncertainty in who you are as a person can leave you doubting yourself while comparing and measuring your success to that of others. Comments like "I wish I had her life" or "why is she so perfect?" Has now become a common thing on the accounts of a lot of social media celebrities. What we fail to understand is that people only put their best out for the world to see. I can't tell you how many pictures I take or the number of edits that go into making a picture "perfect" for social media. Case in point, did you now that the placement of my purse in most of these pictures was done to cover my annoying tummy pouch which I've been trying to get rid of.
It's easy to see peoples lives on social media sites like Instagram and want to be like them but you don't know what they go through behind closed doors. Do not be deceived by what you see, it's only one side of the spectrum. What are your thought on this?
Let's move on to today's post. You all know I love my colours. Which is why I am excited that this month's theme is colour-blocking. I simply played up the colours of my graphic T-shirt by going with this green skirt (styled here, here) and then a pink purse. A gold or yellow pair of heels would have been perfect but you've got to work with what you have. The search is still on for a gold pair though and I'm actually considering this pair on Things Nigerians Love.
P.S Check out some of my other colour-blocking looks here, here and here. Stay tuned for a post on how to colour-block.
