OUTFIT: TURNING MY COOL KID ON IN MONOCHROME STRIPES

Current Fav: Iskaba by WANDE COALMONOCHROME STRIPES

It’s been a minute, I know. Adulting is just too hard, it takes most of my time. Today is all about monochrome double stripe-ing. Because it is 2017 and we can wear whatever we want.MONOCHROME STRIPES

Striped (8)

Remember when they say you shouldn’t wear stripes on stripes because it is not ‘right’, well that some lame sh**t.

Striped (5)

For today’s outfit post, I decided to pair a striped top I got from thm.co with my brother’s pants, because it is very comfortable.

Striped (9)

I recently saw the ‘Fanny pack trend‘ on instagram, and I like it, it is still a kind of low-key trend… you guys shouldn’t sleep on it, its so cool.

Striped (7)

My converse is probably tired of me, and if you follow me on instagram you are probably tired of seeing them too. But they are so aesthetic looking in pictures, and let’s not get into how comfortable they are. So bear with me, you will be seeing more of them.

What I wore:
Top: thm.co
Pants: Brother’s closet
Shoes: Thrifted
Fanny pack: Thrifted
Frames: Road side vendor

OUTFIT: SKIRT OR BLOUSE

Current Fav: Back to sleep by CHRIS BROWN

IMG-20170626-WA0002

Heyyy!! I’m quite pumped today, I can’t say exactly why, but… I hope it stays this way.

So, I wore this pleated skirt of mine as an off shoulder blouse or cape… I know, I know I’m a bit late on the trend loool. But I just found a way to make this work for me…

IMG-20170626-WA0001

IMG-20170626-WA0007

I got this skirt as a birthday gift when I clocked 19, and I’ve only worn it like twice (you have that piece of clothing you never wear and won’t give out, right?).

IMG-20170626-WA0004

Wearing a skirt as a top might be a bit tricky, so I advise you go for skirts with elastic band as opposed zippers this will make fitting easier.

IMG-20170626-WA0005

You could also wear it as a tube top, but I choose to wear it as an off shoulder top because then it doubled as a cape.

IMG-20170626-WA0008

You know I’m a sucker for Denim, so I paired the skirt with a pair of jeans, but you could wear it with any other fabric or a skirt or even as a dress depending on the length and your preference.

IMG-20170626-WA0010

This look will also be great with a pair of heels…

I hope you got a thing or two from this post. Till next time. xx.

DIY: FRAYED JEANS

Current Fav: Good morning by BRYMO

Hello Guys,
A couple of weeks ago I frayed my jeans… I wasn’t gn put it up here because I thought everyone would have seen a tutorial on How-to-frayed jeans (I know, silly me).
When I wore the jeans out with a few friends, I got a lot of questions about it, so I decided to put it up.

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-58_1
Things you’d need arnd why
1. A pair of JEANS (denim)
I’m sure you get why you need this, lol. Okay so, the weaving in jeans makes it very easy to take out a particular thread, the wrap thread which runs vertically is dyed and the weft thread which runs horizontally is left white.

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-03_1
2. A pair SCISSORS
This is to cut off a few inches depending on preference, I cut off about 3 inches, you can go lower or higher… All you need to do is to cut out the hem.
3. A TAPE RULE
For measuring out the length you decide to cut off.
4. A NEEDLE
I used this pick out the horizontal/weft thread (which was white) I did this till I discovered easier way to just put out the thread.
5. Some TIME
Last but not the list, is TIME!! The one thing that was left out in all of the DIYs on fraying denim had I seen is Time…

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-15_1

I need to emphasize on this,I had planned to frayed the denim higher than I did ( I was gn make it about 5 inches high, but I stopped at about 2 inches).
When I was in school (cheesy, I know 😂) I knew some people that payed to fray their jeans, I used to wonder why, but after doing this, I understand why now… To all my friends that want their jeans frayed, you gatta pay me.
In the end, it will be worth it. So, I’d say to should try it out, no rush…

Screenshot_2017-06-19-15-16-46_1

It took me about 2 days and I’m not done, I’ll still fry it higher.

I hope this was helpful, till next post.xx

Today is another outfit post, I wore this waistcoat as a shirt/blouse with a pair of jeans (fav) then I completely the look with a blazer, kind of gave it a corporate- casual look.

I have layered with this waist coat but I couldn’t get enough good pictures so I refrained from posting it here.

Screenshot_2017-06-05-09-27-46_1

But if you follow me on Instagram @mikunstyles, you’d have already seen how I layered with it.
I thrifted this coat a few months ago it cost #200 and the most interesting thing about it is it is DENIM you’ll know how much of a sucker I am for Denims.. I’m not sure these pictures are showing that its Denim, but it is and that makes me liken it even more.
Everything I wore besides from the shoes was thrifted and the total cost is less than 2000 naira (the jeans was a bit pricy 😒)

Till next time where I’ll be talking about BEAUTY, please stay tuned.xx

BELTED LIKE THE 80’s

Current Favorite: 80’s Films by JON BELLION

Hello,

I know it’s been a minute. I am fighting an ‘Inconsistent War’ and I really  hope I win

Word on the street is the Big Belts are making their  way back and I totally  down for them! I’m always down for retro… The farther the better (actually, I like the 90’s best)

I like the big belt for 2 reasons. First reason is because  they can give a snatched look, they are almost like a mini corset.

Also. They are good statement pieces, you know because they are big and all up in our faces  making a statement 😂 .

P. S I didn’t interview any blogger this month, I lost that battle to Mr inconsistency, but the war in still on, I’ll try to win more battles.

OUTFIT: ANKARA WRAP PEPLUM

Hey readers,

Another week, another outfit post till I get my sh*t together to give you hair post sigh…

Screenshot_2017-04-11-07-58-09_1

This Ankara wrap peplum top is from Thm.co, remember I told you about them in a recent post named ‘THM-ed’ if you haven’t seeen that post yet, click here.

Screenshot_2017-04-11-08-00-12_1

So, I decided to show you guys two ways I wore the wrap top.

Gone are those days that Ankara prints were limited to Friday’s only, precisely for Jumat service, I like how the print have been incorporated into our everyday day lives, so I thought I’d style it with a blazer and pants for work purpose and it turned out nice

For me, everything goes with a pair of jeans 😏. Here I wore the print top with a pair of jeans and I also liked how it looked.

I paired their ‘Wide leg pants with belt’ with their  ‘Flared sleeves floral blouse’, I fell in love with the pants at first sight (it is in my favorite color) I feel the belts adds a bit of chic-ness to the pants.

IMG-20170319-WA0014-01-01

The pants are very comfortable the fabric feels good against my skin.

I did not like the blouse at first but as soon as I tried it, I feel in love with it, the floral prints will allow it to be easily paired with a number of color.
