I have been looking forward to featuring these pants on the blog from the moment I got them from Serinda Fashions,one year ago.

Palazzo pants are a fun wardrobe staple as they’re stylish, comfortable, and above all versatile. They were very super popular back in the ’60s and ’70s and just like any other trend they have made a comeback.

They can be taken from the office to the streets and everywhere in between. With their super wide-leg and flowy nature, they sure add a different spice to any outfit. They also give you something different to play around with taking a break from the skin-tight jeans.

Palazzo pants are a little tricky to wear, but with the right styling, they can be very chic and elegant.

To best pull of this trend, here are a few styling tips

  1. Colorful printed palazzo pants go well with tops in a plain and solid color or the other way round.
  2. Since they flare out at the bottom, keep the top light and well-fitting and/or tuck in the top/shirt.
  3. Add a belt to help define your waist.
  4. They are best paired with crop tops.
  5. Wear them with heels as they elongate your figure.
  6. Pick the pants in a light fabric and color.
  7. Accessorize in a subtle way. The pants are the statement of the whole outfit.

                    Lastly, remember, confidence is Key.

Thank you for joining me .You really are the best!xoxo

HOW TO STYLE CONVERSE III

HOW TO STYLE CONVERSE III

Hey hey darlings,

Welcome to this space of mine. If you are new here, allow me to bring you up to speed. For the last few posts, here and here, I have been sharing ways on how to style the converse sneakers.

For today’s post I’m styling this dress which needs no introduction at all. My Instagram family must have seen it pop over there several times.

This makes for a perfect outfit for the weekend or even for running errands.

What about you? Do you have a pair of Converse? How do you style them?

HOW TO STYLE CONVERSE II

The last couple of days have been absolutely crazy as elections dominated the news and conversations.

The long road towards elections has finally ended. There are mixed reactions all over as some people are feeling either elated (because their candidate won) or disappointed (because their candidate lost).

All done and dusted, my hope is that all those who have assumed power create a difference.

Anyway that aside, let’s get back to the swing of things. Here’s the second post on how to style the converse sneakers.

Not only do converse make outfits look trendy, but they are super-duper comfortable as well.

The first styling post went here.

And we are back!!!!!ohhhh boy!! It sure feels good to be back on this space!! Hope everyone’s having a great Friday. Thank you so much for being patient.

On today’s post I am talking about the good ol’ chuck Taylors or as we prefer to call them-converse. These shoes have been there for like forever and they are pretty much not going away anytime soon. They automatically complement every avenue of personal style from punk to prep.To prove to you just how insanely versatile they are I thought it would be fun putting together outfits showing some of the many ways in which you can style them.

So here we go with the first styling. Doesn’t this combo just look delightful?

OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

Each and every day I realize that to raise my own visibility I have to get out of my comfort zone. Recently I did a street shoot-something that I always admired seeing other bloggers do but never had the courage to engage in personally.

Whether it’s  because I am extremely shy or if I am afraid of the stares from the passers-by i am not quite sure.

Thanks to my constant companion and friends (I always have them during my shoots) it went pretty well. I really,really enjoyed, much more than I thought I would. In fact, I plan on doing a lot more street shots.

The whole thing made me realize that one can lose nothing by trying. Putting oneself out there can be a scary prospect but every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Thanks for reading.Hope your Thursday rocks

Chat soon.

FROM THE GYM TO THE STREET

FROM THE GYM TO THE STREET

Hello muffins. Welcome back (hug).Thank you for your prayers as I am now back on my feet.

On today’s style post I am talking about the athleisure trend which was major last year but still continues to sweep the streets. The trend which was popularized by celebrities like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez simply involves incorporating active wear/gym clothing into everyday pieces.

 

The athleisure style gives “the cool girl look” without putting in a lot of effort. It’s the kind of style that I’d rock over the weekends or after work as it is convenient and comfortable.

Here are a few rules of thumb just in case you are planning to rock this trend.

  1. Invest in pieces that are functional and fashionable. They make the look stylish
  2. Accessorize appropriately-Hats, belts, bags, sunglasses and even scarfs makes the outfit extra.
  3. Dress for the occasion. It’s not a trend that can be worn everywhere.

Ps.This was my first street shoot and I must say it was fun. My team and I got weird stares from the passer-byes.lol

Well they say athleisure is the new casual. Would you rock this trend? Share and let’s connect.

Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
