Personal style is such that it is a reflection of the individual’s taste, experiences, and perhaps even aspirations. It is a form of self expression. Adventurous, elegant, sprinkled with a high dosage of quirkiness, I like to think of my style as an expression of the modern woman with an edge- classy but not afraid to be quirky either. She stands out from the crowd, for the right reasons.I love that fashion can transcends eras and cultures. Add personal style and the options are limitless.Today’s look is inspired by the 70s era. The double plaid look was one well played (see what I did there!😂) with the clever juxtaposition of colors.Think Farrah Fawcett. Think plaids. Think wide legs. Think vibrant colorsI bought each of these items separately not knowing what I would pair with what. As soon as I got the jumper, I thought of the plaid pants and thus; like a puzzle, piece after piece, it all came together. That for me, is the most exciting and possibly fulfilling part of creating a look. Starting with a blank canvas and creating something you are proud of, can relate to, and and hopefully, one that others can connect with. Hope you like the look.
Happy new month. December, be good to us all.

The air is chilly. The leaves are turning. Autumn is here and that means goodbye to summer favorites. Or does it?

So school/uni is back in session and the fashion aspect is certainly not in recess either.
With autumn mode activated, it’s sweater weather and this slogan sweatshirt from River Island comes in handy for that casj chic, I-just-threw-this-on look. It’s the perfect combo of chic and comfort and of course, with the slogan Feminism emblazoned across the chest, it was a no brainer. Power to the Sisters!😀
To balance things out, I matched the bright orange with a pair of white distressed skinny jeans with some floral embroidery. The result: certainly more than A for effort!😜💪🏾
This look is not just for students but is also perfect for that off-duty look. Whatever you get up to this weekend, hope you get some weekend style inspo from this. Have a fantastic weekend.
Your favourite lass.xox

Hi lovelies, happy hump day. It’s been a minute. This was meant to be a short post but I’ll just go with the flow. I actually had this post ready a week ago but was feeling all shades of down; mainly due to how I felt I was doing with the blog and how I felt I should be doing. The thing about running a blog or any other outlet of creativity is that, you pour yourself into it, all of you- it represents you as a person and the things that drive you. So it’s more than just sharing some outfits or keeping up with trends. It’s a reflection of some parts of you to a large extent which means you want to see it thrive as much as possible. At some point in your journey to where you believe your destination should be, you let that famous thief- comparison sneak in and try to rob you of your joy. Continue reading Back n Black
In a recent conversation with someone, the most talked about topic in England came up. No, I’m not referring to Brexit, but rather the weather. 😁 (I’m sure you all have your opinions on Brexit and the aftermath but we’ll leave the politics out for today.) According to this friend, for him, summer officially starts once Wimbledon begins. Wimbledon is now in full swing so I say…let’s get this (summer) party started. Continue reading Summer vibes
Happy mid-week guys! Hope you’ve had a good one so far. 🙂
Having had our bodies nicely tucked away underneath tights, body warmers and woolly jumpers earlier in the year, the warmer months have a way of making us want to bare some skin Continue reading A Rusty Affair
