Pura Vida Babes!

You guys I am seriously so sorry that I have been MIA. To tell you the truth my life has just been a little bit hectic in Costa Rica for the past several weeks. I literally have 16 more days in San Jose! WHAT! As I type that out I’m mentally freaking out about how fast the time has gone. In some ways I’m really excited to get back home. I’m graduating this fall and I’m so stoked about what’s in store for me. At the same time I’m sad that my time in Costa Rica is almost coming to an end. In the next few days I’m gonna try my best to post consistently so that I can share some of my stories of my journey here.

With that being said, Let’s jump into my outfit! So some of my favorite outfits that have inspired me recently has been urban wear. If you don’t know what urban wear is think of black, graphics, camo, cool sneaks, and a snapback hat. Everything about urban wear and urban style is so DOPE! So in honor of this trend, I picked up this graphic, black fringe top and paired it with my boyfriend jeans.

To complete my look I added a tropical headpiece and some champagne colored sneaks.

Hola Babes!

I’m super excited to share this outfit with y’all today because this was my first official shoot in San Jose, Costa Rica!! Since I’ve been here, I didn’t have the time to do a photoshoot until this past weekend. Shoutout to my host brother Fernando! He took me to downtown San Jose and created photoshoot magic with my camera capturing this pink tropical dress perfectly! But seriously can I take a moment to gush over this dress?! A trend going into this summer is colorful, bold, tropical prints. When I was packing for Costa Rica, I purposely went out to buy pieces that had flowers, birds, palm trees, etc. I particularly adore this dress that I got because first it’s in my favorite color pink and second the intricate details of the dress like the ruffled sleeves and the colorful palm leave print adds so much character to the dress.

To complete my outfit I added some fun pink sunnies and a pair of chunky heels.

Hola Bebes!

I know it’s been awhile since I last published a fashion post but I’ve just been so busy lately. But things are now starting to settle down for me so I should be able to post more consistently. Now let’s talk about this outfit. I am IN LOVE with this t-shirt dress! Absolutely in love! Hell I don’t even know what an electric panther is! Is it some obscure band I haven’t heard of? Or some secret rock group? Who Knows? All I know is that when I saw this dress I wanted it! It’s just so edgy and those fuchsia sequenced sleeves are to die for!! This dress is so easy to either dress up or dress down.

I paired my dress with some sunnies and some black heels but you can easily wear this outfit with some cute sneakers as well.

Bloom Baby Bloom!

The floral/ flower details is definitely on trend this season! It seems like anytime I hit the stores I see tons of tops, dresses, etc covered in flower details. I personally adore this trend! It’s springtime and a little flower power on a top or a pair of cute jeans is fine by me. So when I saw this adorable, pink, floral top with puffy sleeves in the stores I fell in love. Y’all pink is my signature color! From the time I was a little girl till now it has been my favorite color and always will be.

I paired my top with some high waisted shorts and some chunky heels. P.S if you haven’t noticed I totally got a new hair do! I decided to put some twists in my hair since I moved to Costa Rica for 3 months!

Happy Monday Y’all !

You guys this wrapped cardigan I have on is EVERYTHING! I wish there was some way you could feel how soft and warm it is from your computer screens. It is seriously so cozy and looks chic which is what I love about it. For the days where I want to be warm and cozy but still look chic I pull this cardigan out of my closet.

I paired my cardigan with a black lace top, my high waisted jeans and some black pumps to complete my look.

It’s Rodeo Time!

Y’all I’m so excited that the Houston Livestock Rodeo is in town! I don’t know about y’all but if a place has carnival rides, fried foods, and good music I’m there! That’s exactly what the rodeo is if you’re not familiar. So in honor of the rodeo being in town, I’m sharing a rodeo inspired look without cowboy boots! Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against cowboy boots. In fact I think they’re cute! I honestly just didn’t have a pair of cowboy boots at home and I also wanted to switch things up a bit. Not every rodeo look needs a pair of boots! For my look I work some closed toe, chunky heel, nude shoes instead. LOL! Call me crazy but I think I look fine as hell!

 

I wore a fringe blouse, a nude hat and a denim skirt to complete my look.

Happy First Day of Spring y’all!

I went to New Orleans for Spring Break and had the best time. New Orleans is definitely one of my favorite cities in the world.  It was so refreshing to get away for awhile and to spend time with my mom. I feel so refreshed and recharged.  Since its the first day of spring, I decided to show off my flower mesh dress! You guys!! I don’t usually follow trends but I am OBSESSED with the mesh/tulle trend going on right now. In fact, if I had all the mesh dresses and body suits in the world this girl would be happy forever! Mesh material is light and flowy and can be as revealing/ sexy as you want it to be. I picked up this mesh dress with flower details from Zara and I thought it was perfect for spring.

I paired my dress with high waisted jeans, gold hoop earrings and some chunky heel boots to complete my look.

Zara is just one of those stores I’m obsessed with. I can’t help it I shop there all the time. Y’all its so bad that some of the ladies who work in the dressing room recognize me. I’m pretty sure I’m slowly working my way up to first name basis with them lol. I don’t know if I should be super ashamed or proud but y’all get my point. Anyway I picked up this spotted crop top that I’m in love with. The sleeves are flared that gives it a 70s vibe but isn’t super retro and it just makes me feel so fun and fearless. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again, clothes should make you feel confident if they don’t trash them or better yet give it to someone who needs it.

To add some spunk to my outfit I added some sexy black heels and a sparkly chocker.

Y’all I’m kinda obsessed with this top!!! When I tried this on at Zara I fell in love! This top is like a mash up of a sweater and a blouse that you can tie up on the sleeves. I always try to find unique pieces that I can fit into my wardrobe. I don’t always want to buy the status quo of what everyone is buying or only buying staple pieces. Sometimes its just fun to mix things up you know?!

I added a statement piece necklace and some sunnies to complete my look.

If you couldn’t tell from my previous posts or by the title of my blog I am Nigerian. I wasn’t born there (I was born in London, England) but that’s where all my family is from which makes me Nigerian too! There is so many things to take pride in as a Nigerian. We have have an amazing culture that has great taste in music, food, and the arts. Also Nigerian people as a whole are very hardworking and we tend to excel in corporate America. As a young woman now I appreciate being Nigerian so much more now than I did as a child.

So in honor of my Nigerian roots I decided to show off this beautiful ankara dress that my aunt gave me. I decided to add some unexpected accessories with my dress by wear big gold hoop earrings and a gold hooped leather chocker.
