MY GO TO TRAVEL OUTFIT IDEA| What to Wear | Casual Fashion Inspiration

Hello my Lovelies! How have you been? It's been one week since my last post. I'm so giddy,and can't wait for yu to see what I've been working on behind the scenes. 
 
Hint: Gotta give all those models and youtubers some more respect yo, it's not easy!
By the way, if you've never checked out my YouTube Channel Lily of Nigeria you can do so here
Do you ever get into that semi travel panic mode of what do I wear! I used to, until I found my groove, which is basically anything that gives me peace and comfort; which includes ease, in case i need to use the loo.

However, lately, my go to outfit has been this denim on denim look and my trusty royal blue flats...
In the realm of fashion for some years, denim on denim was regarded as a fashion faux pas.  
However, I remember a picture of Sade Adu rocking this trend and totally nailing it. To be honest, Sade slays anything she puts on.

My travel outfit always has to abide by the rule of comfort. I've been to a lot of places seen and heard things(y'all know I love to travel); and, I want to be at peace, you know, just in case...
This jeans trouser is an a straight cut. It's pretty loose, but at the same time fulfils it's necessity as a ladies jeans haha, which is to make your butt look good (ladies can you relate? Come through and comment below).
When mixing denim on denim though, you want to avoid overdoing it. God forbid we end up looking like that 2001 look Justin Timberlake and Brittany Spears failed to pull off. You can see what I'm talking about here yep, the internet doesn't forget.


What do you wear when you travel? Let me know by commenting.
You can find me/follow on instagram here

Keep trying to be the change you seek. Keep learning new ways to positively impact the lives around you,and you. Keep doing what you want to be remembered for. By God's grace, I'll see you in my next post.

Have a beautiful week,

Summer 2017 Lookbook : Office Outfit Ideas

Hello Loves! Glad to have you here, welcome to today's post. If you missed the last one on Saturday, you can catch up by clicking here
Have you noticed the new things on the site? Actually, they're not really new I've had them here for a while now; I just tweaked them a little, you know me...

We're knee ankle deep into summer, and well some of us need inspiration on what to wear to the office. This post is about how I style this red and black plaid skirt to the office. I waited close to 8 years to be able to wear this skirt becuase I used to be fat. It actually has a jacket, but the jacket is too big for me now so I use my black blazer(which I forgot at home when I went to shoot) with it when necessary.


First Look: 
I use a not so see through black long sleeve chiffon top. It's definitely a serious look for an uptight office. Sometimes I complete this look with my black flats from Dunes.

Second Look:
I mostly throw on my black jacket when rocking this look because my office can be chilly at times. I love the pattern of this shirt and how it feels against my body.



Haha remember this particular picture from Sunday's Instagram post?



 This third Look is more laid back. It is actuallly one of my crazy experiments. I mean who mixes denim and plaid? So, if your office is chilled, and kinnda laidback(more focused with how productive the individual is, rather than what they wear on their bodies), this look is definitely one to try out.




 


Shop my Look

Skirt: Handmedown from my Mama.
Denim Jacket:  Cubus My jacket is currently out of stock but, I'm eyeing this one, and I feel it will definitely pass.
Black Sleeveless Top: Cozgu
Shoes: Woolworth



What look is your favourite?


Keep trying to be the change you seek. Keep learning new ways to positively impact the lives around you,and you. Keep doing what you want to be remembered for. By God's grace, I'll see you in my next post.

Wishing you happiness, and God's love,
Your Friend Alexandra.

Looking for what to wear this summer? My favourite casual outfit of the day might Inspire You

Quote of the Day: Art should disturb the comfortable, and comfort the disturbed. 

Hi guys! How was your weekend? Mine was a bit productive in that I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to take pictures for the blog. I didn’t use a photographer though, I made use of what I had. My camera and a tripod stand I purchased a while back for my YouTube channel came in handy.
What casual clothes do you find yourself wearing lately? I remember this day like it was yesterday. We had made up our minds to ditch the couch potato life and explore a bit of our city. Call us crazy because we didn’t leave the house until it was almost three o’clock in the afternoon. Earlier that day we had a brief, unconventional meeting that come what may, we must tour our city. Everyone was finally ready just before three, so we set out on an adventure I will never forget. We were definitely favoured by God to get passes to where we went to. To say that we laughed and had fun is an understatement.

The weather was really hot, so I threw on a navy blue tank top and these super comfy embellished boot cut (semi-maternity) jeans from NEXT. I can’t over stress how super comfy these jeans are. They also have this cool feel (I couldn’t believe I’ve had this treasure waiting to be worn in my closet for close to 3 years).


Do you have a dress, clothe or piece of fashion you’ve been waiting for the right moment to wear?
Let me tell you a secret. You see, I had never worn these jeans since my mother gifted them to me because, I was…how do I put this…er...fat. Yes, that’s the word. I felt if I wore them, I’d just end up looking like a rolling ball of fufu. 

 But, with more than 10KG off my body forever to the glory of God alone, I decided to give them a try. And guess what, (although now a bit too loose), they fit! The waist was a bit too loose so I had to whip out my thickest belt to hold the jeans from creating a scene. Omo see compliments… chai, God thank you o.



How did your day go? What plans do you have for the rest of the week?
Because you've been good, here's a bonus picture.


Thank you so much for visiting, and reading. I appreciate the fact that you keep coming back. Please don't forget to tell your friends and family about Lily of Nigeria.
