A slighty windy andcold Sunday afternoon, had my day planned out to meet with CJ to take a couple of pictures for our  blogs, and have lunch.

I got ill and couldn’t wear what I had initially picked out. With the intention of staying super warm and stylish, I quickly grabbed my turtle neck by Axcess .I could only find an exact one on Thredup but here is another similar one from Khols Here and it is super thick and warm.

Despite my situation, I was bent on staying happy as always and dressing up is one way to keep me happy.

With the winds blowing, my hair flying, cars passing by and people staring, CJ and I kept doing our thing.

Glad I had my comfortable boots by  Kenneth Cole  because we had to walk and stand a while to get good spots for the pictures. I would link a couple of their boots here because they are currenly offering a 50% off their range of boots.

This Patent Leather Booties is also on sale and hopefully it’s not sold out at the time of publishing this post.

A Closet Sale Find.

Hey lovelies, how are you all doing? I am curious to know what your weather feels like wherever you are, because mine keeps surprising us with a minus feel.

I went for a bloggers closet sale event and was able to pick an item from all the closets. Typically, while I shop, I envision how I would style or pair each item while sometimes, I buy an item because it’s nice and has styling potential.

I was able to snag this plaid A-line mini whowhatwear  skirt from @thedandyliar closet and its super soft, nice and has these bold brown buttons on the side. Found  the exact same skirt, and you can shop from  Target Here

 

Did I say how much I love the mix of cream, black and red? These colours are usually one of the best combinations that would help when choosing your colour of accessories.

Because I  have an ankle lenght boot, I decided to style this skirt with my mock turtle neck top by H&M and you can shop  same type Here , also paired with my Vintage lenghty sweater. The details and placements on this sweater is so unique.

Today’s blog will be about how I spent a relaxed Sunday evening with a friend CJ.

8654495c-0b4e-4878-8a8d-51ce9afeb71d

Meeting CJ for the first time in person although we had opened communications via instagram and text messaging, I decided to go with a monochromatic look. It was one of the easiest outfits I put together in couple of minutes.

Weather was pretty awesome hence my open toe shoes from Aldo which I have had for quite a long time now.

CJ planned the photo session which turned out great, we tried out scenes to achieve great pictures and finally ended the evening by having a wonderful dinner at Stella Modern Italian Cuisine with a heck of catching up and getting to know each other better.

Choosing a montone outift is one easy styling techinique you can adopt in making your get-ready session fast and simple. I love this sweater I got from  Burlington because its simple and it has those cute crossing at the chest area, making the neckline stand out. Got it off the racks but I found something similiar with a different colour Here

I love the gold cuff details on this shoe, gives my ankle a stronger  grip and looks stylsih. Choose this colour of shoes, to create a bit of contrast to the whole blush pink look. This is quite an old shoe, but if you desire to have a shoe  with almost same ankle cuff look, I linked this Aldo shoes Here for you to shop.

This cute little bag I got as a birthday gift few hours ago, was my go-to pick for this look. It is an Aldo crossbody   bag which you can shop the exact same one Here

Love the Burgundy and Blush look. Burgundy is a winter/fall colour which can also be worn in summer.

Pants I also got as a gift few hours ago, very light weight, pleated with mini draw belt aroung the waist.  It’s from Ross and it’s a good choice for spring and summer!

Closet Styling.

Yes Hello everyone, I am back and this time, I am featuring a friend/client of mine. Hope you all are doing great and enjoying the festive season.

Meet my Friend/Client Nardos.

I was super excited that I got to re-organize and style her closet. After I was done with that, I helped pair and put a couple of her outfits together. She was slightly confused on how to style her sequin little skirt from  Forever21 and there I was, quickly picking individual items from her closet to achieve this look.

3AB492D4-C183-45AD-B6FD-13C083B20634

I aimed at achieving a simple night time look with her mini brown Faux Leather Half Moon bag and jumper from Forever21

31954F92-A78A-4024-929D-BC5A9240B1B9

I gradually built up the entire look with her wedge middie heels to keep her comfortable and a black leather jacket to keep her warm for the night time. This whole look can also be worn for an event or better still a Christmas party without having to do much.

It is all in the Details!!!!!!

The biker leather jacket just gives an edge to the entire look. You can pair this look with a black or whiter  Blazer Jacket, but I had to work with the items from her closet and she was excited I got to help style her sequin skirt.

I also did a little switch on the shoes and bag which would be appropriate for hanging out at Bars and Clubs on a Friday Night.

Paired this look with her black purse by Kate Spade where you can find something similar, and an ankle length  boots, giving her a stylish and chic look.
