Mellow Monday beautiful humans!!Are you ready to tackle the new week?

Well, here is something to keep your mood lovely and smiling all through the week featuring this Ankara slit maxi skirt. What I love most about the skirt is the zippered detail on the slit.

The slit adds an extra edge to the outfit and the zippered detail makes it even more extra and versatile. On the days that I want to be modest,I could zip it up or zip it down when I want to show some leg.

BUSTIER LOVE

BUSTIER LOVE

Bustier tops were traditionally hidden under outfits or reserved for the bedroom.

But they have somehow found their way out of their and onto the runways. They have taken over the street style and come in every shade, silhouette and neckline. They are trendy, sexier and feminine and can be paired with everything from oversized white shirts to maxi skirts, pencil skirts, pants and shorts.

Getting my bustier in a floral print was a win for me because floral prints are everthing.For this look I paired mine with my black pants which  I’ve worn way more than I care to admit. The mid-rise waistline of these pants and stretchy fabric makes them ultra-flattering and perfect for wearing all day.

Fashion Tip. In the case that you are conscious of showing too much skin then you can always throw on a top to get more coverage.

Have you tried taking your bustier out of the bedroom and onto the streets, let me know in the comment section.?

ALWAYS PREPARED

ALWAYS PREPARED

Happy Tuesday terrific humans.

Sorry that there have been fewer posts than normal recently-Quite honestly I was ironing out some techie details for the blog and I needed to put some serious effort into that …Normal programming should return from now on!

The key to starting of the day on a good note is getting the right outfit ready the night before.

I usually plan my weekly outfits in advance to avoid the morning confusion and madness.I try out all outfits before-hand to make sure they all come together without last-minute surprises.

Looking impeccable, I feel empowered to tackle the tasks I have throughout the day. Being smart can always elevate your mood and pump up your energy levels to face the day.

Today’s look is sassy and sophisticated. I enjoy having fun with my outfits hence the infusion of colors and patterns.

Fashion tip: Always wear at least one statement piece, clash styles, use a classy look for a start base and then add items according to your personality and job.

May your week be full of grace.
