At 38 weeks and still kicking it.

This happened to be one of my best days I spent with my friend CJ, counting down two weeks or less into having my baby. Clueless on what to wear, I remembered this look I had curated a while back and kept for days like this. I was tired and wasn’t in a mood for a photo shoot but felt better in a second. Maybe that’s what Pregnancy does.

The Restroom at The Collective OKC

We spent the afternoon at The Collective FoodHall OKC and it was one of the most chilled time ever! It was my second time there but definitely enjoyed it even more. We had time to relax, have a good meal, soak up the beautiful space while taking lovely pictures.

The Creams and Nudes make a soft blend, creating a simple, clean and chic look. I was glad to find this Blazer with the detailed gold buttons. Boots comfy, chic and easy to slip on.

Thrifting will always be one of my favorite activities.

Closet Adjustments.

Hello everyone, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. Thanks for stopping by but if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below at the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected.

My closet needs didn’t change much as I mostly sized up. I avoided the maternity section in stores until there was an absolute need for it.

One thing I did for sure, was clear out my closet in other to accommodate the new items I was going to buy.

I basically spent my days and trimesters in big shirts, skirts and dresses. I hated jeans until it got cold.

I’m glad I didn’t get to spend lots of money and even got irritated when I had to shop for newer items because I realised my bump grew bigger in the space of 2 weeks!!!

I was glad I had big shirts that could accommodate my growing bump but spent money buying sweaters and cardigans in XLs.

I hope you found my blog post helpful especially the expectant moms out there.

Solid and Floral.

It is amazing how I have had this top for 5 years and it still fits. Not hoarding, but I never see it and when I do I am like “OH this Top is here, let me style it one more time” I would be giving it out soon.

These pants are a perfect example of summer vibes. Its colors, designs, florals and pleat is a great mix that depicts the season. It’s a Newlook item which was gifted to me by my sister-in-law and has been one of the fun staple pieces in my closet.

Top from Primark, earrings from H&M, Shoes from Old Navy. I linked these Items on my previous post. you can check them out and shop.

Shoes extremely comfortable, good choice for summer and if you need something flat, stylish and comfortable. Top is light weight and suitable for the weather. I chose to style the pants with Teal because it’s one of the highlighted colors on the pants.

You can choose whatever color you desire.

Statement earrings are a great choice for accessorizing if you have less make up or you need to create a focus on your face. I will link a couple of statement earrings below to shop.

You can certainly style this top in various ways, one of which is with a work wear pants or skirt to create a work wear or a pair of White Jeans to help create a contrast with the Teal shade and make it stand out.

Same option goes for the Pants as you have various options in styling it. I would suggest a graphic Tee, a white shirt, tank tops, Blazers, Jumpers etc. You can also decide to mix florals together, no harm, it’s fashion and make it stylish!!!!

The sun is getting hotter by the day and thank God the days of tornadoes are behind us! We had a terrible straight two-weeks tornado episodes. However, I am back to share this monotone look with a work wear shirt.

Did I mention how I am in love with lace fabrics? especially those that come in bigger cords. They are rich in their quality, looks and texture, but can be tricky as when you don’t go for the right size, style and design.

A basic corporate shirt can be worn in several ways. You can switch this up at work if you have to catch up with friends for drinks after work. All you have to do is roll up the sleeves, let a few buttons down and knot it up to help accentuate your waist line.

This skirt is one of the prettiest item I have owned. It is very unique and can be worn in different ways. The color and pattern is fabulous, elevating the looks of a basic work wear shirt. My friend CJ certainly knows how to capture details.

Shirt is linen which is one of the most annoying fabrics ever!! The wrinkage level on this fabric cannot be over-emphasized.
